Great place and plenty of room!!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the space and the quiet. A short drive will get you to various attractions on Smith Mountain Lake. We plan to return and bring more of our family. We only used two of the six bedrooms this time, so we could very comfortably fit the rest of our family.

Amazing Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was perfect! The house is roomy and comfortable. The kitchen is large enough for everyone to help out. We didn't really use the game room but sat in there just to get a feel for it so maybe next time we'll bring our grandson and it's a really fun, safe room! Our favorite though was the patio where we spent most of our time staring out into the woods and listening to all the wonderful sounds of nature! There are trees in every direction and, although it was raining all weekend, appears to be a great place to hike! Can't wait to do that next time!!! Thanks so much for a great stay!!!

Great spacious Mountain home.

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent Christmas weekend here. We have a large family and it fit everyone well. Everything we needed was there, and was even decorated with a Christmas tree. Would definitely stay again
