Property description

Our home is very private and serene, yet close to many popular area attractions. Only a 10 minute drive to Smith Mountain Lake/Dam boat launch. Explore the 12 acres with the existing trails, stream, fruit trees, and wildlife. The house is a spacious 6 bedroom 3 bathroom private home including a giant master suite w/private deck overlooking the vast forest (over 160 acres of adjacent to the property). Enjoy a living room upstairs, and downstairs both with satellite TV, and Blue Ray/DVD players. Newer home (built in 2005) with all modern amenities and decor. Our family loves our lake close, yet private paradise to explore and relax.

The main home sleeps 8-10 comfortably (3 Queen Pillow Top matresses, 2 Full, and Twin Bunkbeds), and Our Private Wooded Cabin can be rented out separately or in addition to the main home for larger groups. The main house has two livingrooms, one downstairs, and one upstairs. The master suite boasts vaulted cielings, a large rock freplace and it's own seperate livingroom area with couch and chaise chair. There is also a workout area in the master closted with an bike/elliptical machine for indoor workouts.

The house is accessible for those that require a wheelchair (the bottom floor is wheelchair accessible).

Enjoy the peacefulness of the our bubbling creek near the cabin. The house is in walking distance to Pigg River access, where you can catch small mouth bass, crappie and rock bass. Only 14 miles to Hargrave Military Academy. Just 5 Miles from where 'The Moonshiners' show is filmed, in the heart of beautiful Moonshiner country rural Pittsylvania County.
Please e-mail with any questions or rental requests, and request online. Michelle and Lonnie McDonald

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU CAN ALSO BOOK Our Private wooded cabin along with this listing for large groups if both homes are available, both homes together would accomodate up to 17 comfortably.
