"This was our first visit to Smith Mt. Lake. We have just spent five glorius and relaxing days on Smith Mt. Lake at Philip and Nancy Austin’s tree house cabin. Their one BR cottage is in Huddleston, VA on the Craddock Creek finger that comes off the main part of the lake. Water depth around their private dock is 9 ft., more than enough for great dives or any power or sail boat you might bring. On the dock there are plenty of toys to keep you busy, kayaks and rafts and an umbrella table to read or relax with your wine in the evenings.
Deck on the cottage is awesome, three fans for warm days and a gas fire pit for those chilly evenings. The grill is new and the cleanest we have seen at vacation rentals.
Phil and Nancy operate a home business and once lived in this cabin while their downstairs office was being remodeled. So, expect a kitchen that has everything you need and a cottage that has been live-in tested. They are perfect hosts…directions to restaurants, stores and fishing tips for SML. Even a private driving lesson on the golf cart down hill to the lake. Nancy and Phil make you feel like you are the only ones home when you rent their cottage. My wife and I will be visiting them often. The perfect getaway!"

"We arrived the day after 6-8 inches of fresh snow had fallen. We were thrilled to see that the entire driveway and parking areas had been plowed, and the front walk and porch had been shoveled. William even left us a bag of salt in case we had trouble with any icy spots. He was also helpful in trying to resolve a wi-fi issue. (This got straightened out our first evening there, so it was not a big deal at all.) The house was great. We gathered with our children and their spouses, along with our dogs, to celebrate our 35th anniversary. The layout was perfect for cooking, sitting around the fire and talking, eating at the large table, and enjoying the beautiful decor and views out the large windows and doors. We did not get to hike the trails, but we did enjoy walks on the golf course where the dogs could run in the snow. We also slept extremely well; this house has incredibly comfortable beds. It was very clean and well-cared for, and I'd recommend it to anyone."

"This home was perfectly decorated, clean and welcoming. I appreciated the special touches from the owner. The best part of this home however is the location. Gorgeous wide water views of Smith mountain and right across the street from all of the amenities. We definitely love the option of going to the beach, swimming pools or playing tennis when we weren't on the lake. The fact that the marina is a few minutes away was perfect! We will definitely be back!"
