About the property

Fantastic Beach, deep water, high speed, guest cabin, hot-tub, dog allowed,

Mystic Mountain is unique in that from inside the home you will feel like you are on the water without ever having to step foot out the door. Sit back and enjoy watching the mountain change through a palette of colors as the sun rises and sets. Once is all it takes and you will be hooked! Our Lindal style cedar home has large exposed wooden beams, tongue n grove hardwood ceilings and flooring, and granite counter tops in kitchen and bathrooms. The home has been updated with all new stainless steel appliances in the kitchen and new furniture throughout. Come and play in the expansive game room on a beautiful new competition billiard table and challenging ping pong table all while enjoying the spectacular wide water mountain views from every window. Also for your entertainment there is a widescreen TV with theater speakers and a DVD player where you can watch your favorite movies and listen to your favorite CD'S and radio station with a state of the art audio system. Directly outside of the game room is a brand new 6 person hot tub where you can soak your worries away while enjoying the memorable view. Both the Living/Great Room have a gorgeous see thru stone fireplace with gas log insert that adds a warm ambiance for those chilly nights. The Great Room has a beautiful bright sunny interior with vaulted ceilings and a wall of windows that make for a panoramic breathtaking wide water view of Smith Mountain. Adding to the charm of the great room is a 3 story custom built solid oak spiral staircase that provides access to every floor. When you are preparing your breakfast lunch or dinner, in a state of the art kitchen with double oven, Jen Air Cook top and under the counter beverage refrigerator, you will enjoy the 180 degree view of the mountains and water. You will delight in the 800 square foot master suite with exposed beams, stone fireplace with gas log insert, built in Jacuzzi tub, his/her showers, sitting area and spectacular view of the water and mountains from your bed. On a clear moon lit night the moonbeams will shine through the skylights allowing them to dance across your bed. All four bedrooms have brand new plush king mattresses for your ultimate sleeping comfort. The 4th bedroom is located in a small log cabin, perfect for your extended family. Our expansive wrap around deck provides for a serene atmosphere where you can view the mountains in relaxing Adirondack chairs or enjoy a meal on our comfortable patio dining set. Only steps away you can access and relax on the over sized party deck, tie up your boat or jet skis to the floating dock or go for a swim. Mystic Mountain is one of very few houses on the lake that has a sandy walk in beach perfect for small children, dogs and grandparents. There is 175 feet of shoreline on the property. The peninsula forms a protective quiet bay with relatively little or no boat traffic which makes for great kayaking, fishing, boating, swimming etc. due to the calm water conditions.

It was such a relaxing family vacation! The house has everything you need and more! Unbelievable views! My husband caught a 27" striped bass so that was a highlight for him😉�The whole setting is so serene and cozy! Would definitely recommend!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying.. Yes this home is truly on the water - there are only a handful of homes on the lake that were built this way, and you cannot do it ever again ! But this is the only home on the lake - with wide water mountain views, sand beach and on over the water..I am glad you enjoyed the cabin as well , this is a great spot thank you again - hope to see you soon back at this home

worst costumer service ever!!!

  • 1 of 5

We have this kind of cabin vacation with my friends regularly for past 2 years and I can say this was my worst experience ever!!

It started with lying about the number of bedrooms in the house which is clearly shows 4 in the website, and we are getting call 3 days after reservation saying that one of the bedroom is not available!! after we explained them that we are 4 couples and we would like to have our own bedroom, we were told that they do their best to make the bedroom ready.

Long story short is they have a separate little cabin right next to main cabin which they counting that as 4th bedroom. it severely smells wood inside that you can not even sleep over there. 1 couple had to sleep on the floor in the main cabin which was irritating. make sure you are not getting fooled like us!!

Next thing is I'm getting this email 1 day before actual starting day stating that there is NO toilet paper, towel , sheets available in the cabin!! so make sure you are getting enough toilet paper with you!! RIDICULOUS!!!

and the last thing which pulled the trigger to all this bad experience was, we arrived by the house at 2:00 pm and they are not letting us inside because the starting time is 4:00 pm.

I understand sometimes there are back to back costumers in the house and they need time for cleaning and other stuff, but it's off season now and there was no cleaning going on in the house plus I called them and explained them that we have 2 pregnant ladies with us which they need to use the restroom and be inside the house. we were told that there is a $75 extra charge if you want to enter the house right now. also they are saying there is a gas station 2 miles away that you can use if you need restroom or coffee!! I couldn't believe my ears that I'm hearing such a thing.

Owner's Response: The property is prominently listed on the website as home and guest cabin - total 4 bedrooms- we regret you misunderstood. You did have access to all 4 King beds/ bedrooms, including the sofa bed as an extra alternative. We don't understand why anyone would need to sleep on the floor . The keyless lock is "smart lock" as well, and therefore will not allow you entry until your check-in time--we had no idea you would be arriving 2 hours earlier than check-in. Plenty of paper supplies were provided for your stay along with other welcome gifts. As per Commonwealth law, linens are required to be sterile and you decided to bring your own rather than rent and that's okay. We wish you well on your cabin vacations in the future Thank you for visiting!

Fabulous! Must stay at Smith Mountain Lake!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week at this amazing house! Location, Location, Location!!! Views, Views, Views!!! Private and peaceful! The kitchen is huge and fabulous for cooking together. Lots of options for seating inside and out of the house. The pool table, hot tub and ping pong table are a big hit as well as family room(s) for hanging out, reading, or watching an evening show. You will love the large deck and beach area for easy water access and loads of swimming fun. Thanks to the owners of this house for sharing their home! We will be back!

Very nice and cute. Lots of room.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent access to the dock and water. Good deck space at night for the outdoor grilling. Was really a little big for 3 couples and 2 children. Didn't utilize the basement except for football night. The weather was outstanding and we spent most of the days outside boating, rafting, swimming or sitting on the deck. The spare cabin was used also. Nice little getaway. Quiet cove, not much action during the holiday weekend and then during the week, we felt like we had the lake to ourselves. Going to get a bigger house next year and bring more family. Second stay at the lake. Will definitely return and may look for a property for sale. The water was amazing.
