About the Property

One bedroom patio apartment - sleeps 4 - private, comfy, & quiet!!!!

This property is so private, comfy, and peaceful!! A perfect paradise for a relaxing and stress free getaway. Or celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or just a weekend getaway!! The Smith Mtn. Lake state park is a half a mile away with a beautiful sandy beach & rentals for any type of watercraft from 2-men kayaks to jet skis. There is also a very accessible boat ramp for all you fishermen. The park also has many hiking trails & picnic areas. It is about 45 minutes into Roanoke or Lynchburg. And about 15 minutes to nearest grocery store, but you may want to bring your own organic food for your stay. The apartment features a 1-bedroom with queen bed, a sleeper queen sofa in living room. Direct TV & dvd player is provided, along with internet connection. Also, a dinette table & chairs. The kitchenette (NOT A FULL KITCHEN) is equipped with a microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, & small refrigerator. Linens & paper products are provided for your stay. Bathroom has shower. The large patio has a gas grill, along with patio furniture. The day dock is a SHARED DOCK with 2 neighbors, but they rarely use it. There is a very short path (350 feet) to day dock for swimming, kayaking, and tie ups for boats or other watercraft. ****I JUST ADDED TWO KAYAKS, PADDLES AND LIFE JACKETS to the property for guests. KAYAK AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE OWNER WILL NOT ASSUME ANY LIABILITY FOR ACCIDENTS, INJURIES, OR LOSS OF EQUIPMENT!!! Rental guests are responsible for loss of equipment and will have to replace items lost. The rental quests are responsible for securing kayaks and equipment on the patio upon their departure. There is no boat slip, nor electricity at day dock. No smoking is allowed!! Smoke-Free & Stress-Free!! Ample parking for a boat trailer, etc. Central AC. Pet-friendly - 1 small pet under 20 pounds. Tenant is responsible for any damage to rental property. Some other amenities are: Wintergreen Ski Resort is about 1 and a half hours from the apartment. Also, a new brewery opened recently in Westlake called Sunken City and it is about 15-20 minutes and there are several wineries in the area. I know you will enjoy your stay and love the lake!!
