The Gate House

Waterfront Vacation Home
Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia

Meet the Owners

The Goods - Matt + Kate

We feel so blessed to share The Gate House with you! Originally from Lancaster, PA, we now reside outside of Baltimore, MD with our boys, Brooks & Wesley and our cat, Lamar Jackson Good. We love spending time on the water, eating ice cream and cheering for all things UVA. We hope that you enjoy the house as much as we do!

The Martins - Doug + Crystal

We are super excited for you to experience our vacation home. We fell in love with Smith Mountain Lake when our family enjoyed the most relaxing and fun-filled vacation we ever had - which led us to being owners of The Gate House. We have been long time residents of Lancaster, PA and our greatest joy is spending time with family. Together with our two sons and their wives, Josh & Ashley and Tyler & Natalie, we expect to spend many years at our second home and create countless happy memories. Our hope is that you too will enjoy your time and build your own fun-filled memories at The Gate House on Smith Mountain Lake.
