Comfortable, Private, Safe and Fun Getaway

  • 5 of 5

As the title suggests, you can't go wrong with picking Stoney Bottom Lodge. It is the perfect place to get away from the daily grind. You will quite literally be forced to disconnect from your devices (if you choose not to connect to the WAY too convenient wifi lol). Aside from Verizon wireless (or a satellite phone), good luck getting any cell reception.

Even though it's quite the trek to get to this part of Virginia from most major cities and towns in DC, VA and MD,the trek is SO worth it. My friends and I stayed there for three nights and took advantage of all the amenities this home had to offer. We were a group of 10.5 people, 5 women 5 men and a baby and NEVER felt too close together. The grill is in perfect working order, the fire pit was a fantastic commodity to have (perfect for s'mores), the rooms were clean and comfortable, water pressure was strong along with consistent hot water (even when multiple people were using the showers), kitchen appliances were all in working order and A/C was very reliable.

The house may look like it's the scene of a 70's romantic comedy on the inside but trust me when I tell you, not only is it a really nice change from the shiny stainless steel everything, but you'll end up getting more enamored by the nostalgic feeling it provides. The ONLY suggestion I would give the home owner is to repaint and weatherize the outdoor wood floors and beams. To potential renters, Bring a healthy amount of STRONG bug repellent - we had Off Deep Woods Sportsmen II and it worked... well. We should have added several citronella torches just to be safe.

On a final note, ff you the type that is safety conscious, don't worry, you're not alone; I too am VERY safety conscious anywhere and everywhere I travel. I always make sure I know my surrounding areas prior to and on the first day of my visit. Even though it is in a remote location, there wasn't a moment where I felt unsafe or noticed any unsafe activities happening around the area.

All in all, I HIGHLY recommend you rent this particular property. Fair price, private location, safe and convenient -- If you're feeling adventurous and willing to drive about an hour away to Falling Springs, Virginia you can enjoy some natural spring water swimming and waterfalls GREAT for kids of all ages. Bonus points, if you're an avid star gazer, the pitch black evenings that are a staple of any worthwhile outdoor getaway will have you pulling out your telescopes on the first night.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Stoney Bottom Lodge was fantastic! When we finally reached the top of the mountain and saw the lodge for the first time we were blown away! The lodge has breathtaking views. It was the best place we have been to in a while. It so serene. The lodge is very roomy and reach around porch was great to hang out and relax on while looking the lake. Lake Moomaw is simply amazing. The dock is huge and was great to hang out on and swim. We took kayaks out, which worked out great.

The pond was simply fantastic, once you find it you WILL be amazed. .. I know I was.

We really enjoyed this place and cannot wait to go on another trip to Big Lick Retreat's Stoney Bottom Lodge!

Wonderful Views, Great Lake, and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends rented this property and loved every minute. This is a great rental house with amazing views. After taking the dogs swimming, my favorite part of the day was sitting on the upper deck enjoying the view of the lake and reading a good book. There are many birds to sing you to sleep at night or provide your morning wake up call. Whippoorwills were some of my favorites, but also barred owls, hawks, and many others. We loved the fact that it was so far off the beaten (even paved) path. We did not plan to leave once we arrived, and that was probably a good thing as it is quite a distance to the nearest town. We would caution that the house sits on top of a mountain / hill. There is a flat yard, but at the edge of the yard, there are steep drop offs. It's a GREAT place to relax, talk with your friends, and cook in the well equipped kitchen. We are planning to return and will try to bring our friends.
