"My family with 2 teenagers loves to vacation at Smith Mountain Lake. The boating, tubing and jet-skiing were so much fun! The cottage was well maintained and extremely clean. We thoroughly enjoyed the screened porch with wonderful views of the water! The porch had a ceiling fan and was a cool place to sit even in the hottest part of the day. The lot was gently sloped to the dock. We had such a great time and beautiful weather!"

"Great, clean home on SML. We were a group of three couples and stayed very comfortably. The deck provided a great view and most of our time was spent on it while at the house. We took the basement master as we had two dogs and could keep them away from our friends during the night. This home is the perfect layout for two families, with children, vacationing together. The Parnell’s were so easy to work with and I would definitely recommend this vacation home."

"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've just returned home from Smith Mountain Lake and had a wonderful time. We rented this home as the lake is centrally located between my siblings and my mom, we were celebrating her 60th birthday. There is plenty of space to spread out and the home is wonderfully equipped. The owners were delightful to work with and when mailing the key, they even sent a "Happy Birthday" message to my Mom which was very kind.
The personal touches like the birthday message AND leaving all we would need to make s'mores was very thoughtful and well received. I don't think you could find nicer people to rent from.
I would recommend this home and location to anyone looking for a relaxing time spent with family or good friends (or both!). The only recommendation I have would be to bring your own bed linens as you are required to wash & dry them before you leave. We brought our and simply remade the beds which made the morning of departure far less hectic.
We hope to go back to this home again next year, it was an absolute blast."
