About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths

********* We will begin accepting reservation requests for 2017 in February, 2017 after we determine our family 2017 schedule. *********

From mid-June through August, we accept full-week, Sunday-to-Sunday rentals only.

Our lakeside log home is our family's vacation home that we rent to guests 3 or 4 weeks each year. It is about 30 yards from the waterfront of Smith Mountain Lake, the 'Jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains', and has a large dock and party deck. Built in 2004, it has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and over 3,000 sq. ft. of living space.

Our house has a covered porch and multiple decks. The main level is open and airy with a large dining table (pine harvest table that seats up to 10) and living area that is open to the kitchen area. The loft area is great for board games or quiet relaxation and has a bedroom and private bath. The large basement is predominantly above grade and has lots of natural light from the many windows. It contains a ping pong table, additional TV with surround sound, a laundry room, a bunk room, and a full bath. The quiet cove is great for swimming and water sports.

The property is convenient by water or car to restaurants, shops, miniature golf, an arcade, movie theatre, vineyards and wineries, and museums - D-Day WWII Memorial (Bedford, 30 mins), Booker T. Washington (Moneta), Transportation, Science, Tubman Museum of Art (Roanoke, 45 mins), and Mill Mountain Zoo on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Convenient hiking and sightseeing at SML State Park and National Parks on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Great house, no wifi

  • 4 of 5

The house was great. Plenty of room for our group (4 adults, 2 teenagers and 3 younger kids). It was clean and had everything we needed. However, the wifi doesn't allow streaming and really didn't even allow us to simply check email. The cell service was also non existent. If you want to unplug with the family, it's perfect. If you need to use wifi for work or any other reason, it would not work.

Owner's Response: Thanks for using our home. It is most definitely for unplugging and getting away. There is no internet provider service in our area of the lake and the limited wifi that we provide is based on Verizon cell service. Parties who require internet access should really look elsewhere on the lake. Guests with Verizon mobile devices generally don't have difficulty getting email and accessing the internet, however, as you say, AT&T service is "non-existent". I hope that the lack of internet access didn't cause too much disruption though as a parent of two teens myself, I suspect that they were not very happy campers.....

Excellent choice!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful log cabin home. It is even better than pictured! The home is spotless and is decorated with a rustic look that perfectly matches the cozy log home style. The loft bedroom was perfect for our three children with a door separating the bedroom from their very own lounging area with lots of board games and extra space. The ping pong table and two separate family rooms with flat screen TVs and a large DVD assortment also provided plenty of indoor fun. The dock is easily accessible and includes a large canoe and kayak, and the home is in a location convenient to the busy Hales Ford Bridge area with restaurants and boat rentals. I would highly recommend! The owner was also very attentive. Thank you!

Perfect home for a relaxing visit!

  • 5 of 5

The log cabin is very clean and comfortable. It was plenty of space for our family of six with room to spare. The lake is pristine and we fished right off the dock. Kids had a great time at the cabin. Lots of fun activities nearby too. We also enjoyed walking through the neighborhood. It is not too busy or crowded.

Great log cabin

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The house is very roomy with 3 finished levels, 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, open kitchen, living room, and dining room, 2 decks, plus a fabulous W double decker dock! Great location - 30 minutes to the dam, 30 minutes to the north, beautiful mid-sized cove. Highly recommend this home!

Don't hesitate!

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky this was available for a last minute getaway. Simply gorgeous. It is spacious, yet cozy. The layout provides enough privacy, but also conducive to gathering in a group. I was concerned about the loft bedroom, and if anyone who slept there would be awakened by others in the morning. However, it is at the back of the loft, and has a door as well as its own bathroom. Very private and quiet. There aren't pictures of the basement area on the listing, but it is beautiful, and doesn't feel like a 'basement'. The kids enjoyed hanging out there and using the ping pong table. The dock and lake are perfect, we hope to return in warmer weather to fully enjoy it. Bottom line...this is a wonderful, well cared for vacation home, so much more than a rental. If this is available, book it fast! You won't regret it.
