Property description


Delight in the peaceful, natural setting and the ambiance of 'rustic luxury' at LAKEWOOD LODGE!!

Lakewood Lodge is a full log home; not your basic 'cabin.' It was built to be a private retreat and is a 'Step above.' Lakewood Lodge is a luxury rental with more amenities than similar properties. Read the comments - our guests agree!!

It is nestled in the rural mountains of Southwestern Virginia with only a 5 minute walk or drive to our private dock, where you can fish, canoe, kayak, dock your boat or just relax! Views are of the mountains, open fields, orchard and wooded area. There is only one other small house in view. Glimpses of the shimmering lake can be seen through the trees and from the upstairs, yet it is located far enough from the water to cushion you from early morning boat and jet ski noise.

The lodge is a perfect destination of its own or a jumping-off point for the many recreational activities the New River Valley offers. It is located 10 minutes from I - 81, and 2 New River Trail biking and hiking access points.

It is 45 minutes from Virginia Tech, 20 minutes from Radford University, 10 miles from Attimo Winery. The lodge is a wonderful lodging, without the crowds, for VT and RU home sporting events or graduations. (Recommend you book one year in advance for graduations and as soon as sporting schedules are publicized.)

The lodge is 10 minutes from 2 public boat launches for Claytor Lake; 20 minutes from the state park. Pontoon and pleasure boat rentals may be arranged through local providers.

We can help you plan your special day and have local vendors ready to help you with your wedding preparations!! Handcrafted, 'rustic luxury' gazebo with landscaped fish pond and small waterfall create the perfect setting for that special occasion!

Secluded and romantic with a honeymoon suite, 2 person heated jacuzzi tub... Loads of ambiance. Attention to detail.

As the builders, owners and managers of Lakewood, we do everything we can to make your stay restful and rejuvenating, just like the vacations we like to take. Therefore, we do not encourage house parties, reunions or loud gatherings.

We live close by so we can be there quickly if the need should arise.

We can't wait to share our world with you!

If you need more room for a larger family, ask about our sister property, Lakeview House, for a beautiful view of the lake!

Call/email even if your desired dates are blocked out! We can refer you to other similar area lodgings.

(Prefer a 3 day minimum for holiday weekends.)

Perfect wedding location for medium-sized gatherings!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Jerry and Sherry Vaughn have been married for almost 40 years and have lived at Claytor Lake for 38 years, Jerry is retired from Verizon and Sherry is a retired educator/counselor. They raised 2 children, Kristin and Jeremy in the same neighborhood where Lakewood Lodge is located. Jeremy, among other things, is a licensed contracter and along with his dad, did the beautiful finish work inside the log home. Jerry hand-crafted the wedding gazebo on site and takes care of the property maintenance, fish pond and orchard. Sherry planned and decorated Lakewood herself, as well as doing the property management, the interior maintenance and assists in planning weddings and other events. They are hands-on owners and managers and delight in meeting and 'spoiling' their guests.

Why the Owner Chose Claytor Lake:
We built Lakewood Lodge, a beautiful log home, on the same private road and in the same community where we raised our children. We are so blessed to be living in this wonderful community and to have beautiful Claytor Lake in our front yard and the New River Trail at our back door! We just wanted to share our little slice of paradise with others who appreciate simple pleasures and family togetherness!

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
This property is unlike other rentals where we have stayed. We have taken all the things that we like about rentals we have visited and added those things that we WISHED they had to create a unique lodging in Lakewood Lodge. Located away from city lights and 'touristy' venues, couples and families are able to find quality time and activities to bring them closer together through their closeness to nature.
