"Our families have enjoyed several nice long weekends at this lovely home. The views of the Lake and mountains are spectacular and the house is located on a quiet road, which was nice, as well. Lots of room to spread out. The master bath is particularly nice with jetted tub. Rustic charm with modern conveniences...only wish we could have stayed longer and more frequently. The rental management company is very friendly and accommodating."

"We rented the home for a family vacation with visiting relatives close to Roanoke area. The house was very spacious and more than accommodating for the group we had. The layout offered privacy and space for naps for elderly or young if needed throughout day. There is a water trampoline, paddle boat, floats, lifejackets, golf cart all for guest use. There is a deck just off the living room upstairs that gives a good view of the yard and cove area. The kitchen was well equipped. They had linens provided, although we brought our own. The washer and dryer were HE and new....worked like a dream. Although, given early warning to stay within the homes boundaries, we found the neighbors to be pleasant. The owners were good with communication, answered when we had issues.... and were very easy to deal with. There was a small issues with the water trampoline at check in, from the last guests, of which the owners graciously offered to drive 3 hours to fix, although we were able to do for them instead. The last evening we had an issue with the kids getting lose in the golf cart and creating some damage to property.... owners were very calm with issue and assured us they would follow up with inspection. The home itself is great! A little more on the secluded side of SML, but well worth the drive. The bedding and furniture were all comfortable and the extras downstairs were great for rainy days (pool table, shuffle board). The house was so large we didn't use the downstairs kitchen. We did not use the guest amenities at the campground/marina nearby, but they are available for guests as well (playground, small beach and dock and tiki bar.) The small beach area that belongs with the property is great for kids being able to play with the rocks, build in sand or easily wade out in the water....as there is a very gradual decline."

"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!"

"My family and I had a wonderful time while staying at this unique and beautiful place. There was enough space to comfortably accommodate 10 of us - 8 adults and 2 kids. The house was very clean and well maintained without any funny smells which I am very particular about. The view from the deck was gorgeous and even though the dock and beach were a little too far away from the house, we were lucky to have nice weather so walking down there was fun and quite adventurous for my kids because they could see a herd of deer on the way. The lawn was mowed, and the kids enjoys running up and down the hill.
From being out in the water by day and making smores over campfire by night, we’ve definitely enjoyed every moment!"
