"We can not thank the owners enough for allowing us to vacation in their home at the lake. We enjoyed every moment relaxing, swimming and just quiet time for reading and visiting with family and friends. House was every thing we had hoped for and more. Owners were a treasured bonus, friendly and helpful we enjoyed every moment we spent with them. We look forward to enjoying their home and lake next year but even more we look forward to getting to visit with them again. Thank you! God Bless and keep you well till next we meet."

"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 arrive at the vacation home for a long extended weekend with some close friends. We were blown away with the amount of space and the great amenities that are offered. The rec/theater room was a HUGE addition as we were able to catch all of the football games on that weekend. The dock located on site allows for plenty of water options and is still tucked in a small cove that doesn't get much water traffic. The grill and in wall speaker system was a nice perk as well as the shuffle board, pool table and poker table. We really enjoyed how each bedroom had their own bathroom so everyone had their own space.
The MiFi mentioned didn't work for us and Wifi would be a great bonus. Verizon cell phone service was fairly limited throughout the house and you need to head to the boat dock to pick up a decent signal.
All in all we were really pleased with our rental and will keep this place in mind when we are planning another weekend trip."

"The house is very nice and is well-maintained. The pictures don't quite tell the whole story (deck, rec room, hot tub etc are all photo-worthy). We spent a lot of time on the deck, which was a nice place to hang out or for our group of 10 to have dinner. The fire pit was nice and I wish we would have used it a bit more. The room configuration worked well four our group: my family of four upstairs, my brother's family of four downstairs, and our parents on the main floor.
We rented a ski boat and keeping it at the dock worked out well. Swimming in the cove is nice, but I'd recommend a boat so you can explore the lake, swim other places, ski/tube, etc."
