Gibbs retreat is centrally located in the beautifully wooded subdivision of Beechwood West at Smith Mt. Lake, making it close to shopping and activities. By water it is located at R 31 on the main channel of the Roanoke arm of the lake, not 5 minutes by water to Hales Ford Bridge, Bridgewater Plaza and 2 marinas. In just a few minutes drive you can access the main shopping areas of the lake and the area restaurants, gift shops, children activities, golf courses and the State Park. We are only 35 minutes from Roanoke and 45 to Lynchburg; making it easy to spend the day in either place. Gibbs Retreat is just as beautiful in the fall, winter and spring. We are surrounded by trees to see the beauty of fall and spring. SML enjoys a lot of fun festivals including SML Antique and Classic Boat Festival September 15, 2018, SML Home Tour October 5 -7, 2018, Chili Festival November 3, 2018. Winter would be a wonderful to spend time with family putting puzzles together, playing games, celebrating Thanksgiving or Christmas. Winter would also be a great time if you are an author and need a quite place to write.
Gibbs retreat is comfortable 3 bedroom frame house with an extra large den. The house comes with 2 lake front queen masters. One on the main level and one downstairs. There are 3 queen beds and 2 single beds available.
