Really nice cottage and private location
We had a very relaxing vacation at The Cottage at Sunset Trail. The cottage was very clean and perfect for what we needed. We also enjoyed the dock. Hosts were very nice and helpful.
Cute Cottage with great Hosts and Sunsets
The Cottage at Sunset Trail was just what the Doctor ordered. This was our 8th summer at SML vacationing with family, but the first time we treated ourselves to a week alone as a couple. The cottage was tastefully decorated and had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and ensured we were well-rested prior to starting each day. The kitchen was well equipped and full of personal touches as was the rest of the cottage.
We spent the majority of our outdoor time either on the lake using a boat we rented from Mitchell Point Marina (we won’t go anywhere else), or jumping and floating along side the dock. The floater had enough room to tie up the rental pontoon boat (using mooring whips provided by our hosts). In the evenings, we enjoyed watching wide water views of the sunsets from the party deck over the owner’s covered boat slip.
Lastly, we’d be remiss if we didn’t give a shout out to the owners, Jeff and Beth. They were very responsive to any questions we had leading up to our arrival. They also made it a point to check-in and make sure we arrived safely, and to let use know to reach out to them for any reason should we have a need while we were there. They genuinely wanted to make sure our time was memorable. When we experienced car problems the morning of our departure, they went the extra mile to assist us while we worked to get our car fixed. Thanks again for a great vacation. We would highly recommend folks consider the Cottage at Sunset Trail - Don & Gail of New Market MD
Relaxing and Fun Vacation at Sunset Trail Cottage
Jeff and Beth are accommodating hosts. Jeff greeted us upon our arrival and provided a quick over view of the cottage and property. Beth offered to assist us with out belongings. A catalog of activities was provided. The cottage was clean, neat, and well decorated. The welcome package contained a nice assortment of snacks. The queen bed was comfortable and linens and towels provided were good quality. Fantastic gas grill outside our door. We spent nights at the dock kayaking, swimming, and fishing, not to mention the terrific sunset. Jeff was so kind to take us fishing at dusk. One suggestion I would make is to have more hanger space in the master bedroom.
Thanks to our hosts for a truly memorable and relaxing vacation.
True Relaxation !!
Both Jeff and Beth are lovely hosts. We wanted to get away from the big city with no disturbances. We were allowed complete privacy; had the luxury of a stunning dock with a gorgeous view- lovely swimming in the lake and cocktails at sunset. The cottage is beautifully decorated and cozy. We would absolutely recommend this destination and would stay again!!
Our experience was above expectations! The owners were awesome! Would recommend to anyone.
Great Place at Smith Mountain Lake
The cottage was absolutely amazing. Everything we could have wanted was there. All we needed to purchase was the food for when we did stay in. We are always on the go at SML so we did not spend a huge amount of time at the cottage. However when we were there everything was perfect.
The only thing I can say that disappointed me a little was from the listing it appeared to me as though the dock is right there at the cottage. I was expecting to walk out of the cottage and be on the dock as it appeared in the listing. The dock is very close however not right outside the cottage.
That being said it was still a perfect getaway. Jeff and Beth were fantastic hosts and were very inviting. Thank you both for an awesome time at Smith Mountain Lake.
