About the property

Small Private Cabin with 1 Queen Bedroom and an additional Queen Bed Loft.

Our Private Wood Cabin is nestled in the woods with its own private driveway and creek. It has all of the modern amenities and luxuries of modern day living, and is nice and cozy for up to 5 people. There is one private bedroom, and a loft bedroom both with queen beds, as well an oversized sectional couch with a chaise. All of the furnishings and inside of the cabin are new and comfortable.

The cabin is located approximately 10 miles from the South side Smith Mountain Lake by car, and a couple minutes walk to the Pigg River for some Bass fishing (although you will have to bring your own pole).

We are situated on our own 12 acres that is attached to over 180 acres of untouched forest, so usually is plenty of wildlife and beautiful scenery no matter what time of year you visit.

If you want to get away from it all, sit back, relax, and enjoy nature, this is the cabin for you! We are always available if you have any questions.

Awesome remote cabin

  • 5 of 5

The secluded cabin was exactly what we wanted and expected! We used the cabin as a base to go do activities at Smith Mountan Lake and hiking to McAfee Knob near Roanoke. Loved having the stream at the edge of the property! A couple of suggestions would be having an outdoor grill available as the fire pit is difficult to get the needed grilling temp; and provide better quality trash bags. The bags provided split with only the slightest bit of weight and pressure and since the trash needs to be hauled in our vehicle to the nearby dumping bins, it would be better to have bags that hold up to the hauling. Otherwise, it was a fantastic stay!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Me, my boyfriend and our dog loved the stay! The house was very cute and perfect size for us in our 4 night stay, the creek ok the property it awesome our dog loved running around on there huge 12 acres. Highly recommend going to the smith mountain lake. We rented a boat and packed a lunch and spent the day on the water with our dog. It was beautiful weather the whole time we were there! Spent the nights sitting at the out door fire pit. Will definitely be back it was a perfect get away. It was really nice to be in the middle of nowhere and get away from everything, had a lot of fun!
