  • So much privacy but civilization just a short drive away!!

    "This cabin was the centerpiece of the exact vacation we had been looking for. I must admit I did panic and pack the kids iPads but they never even asked for them! My two little WV boys are definitely outdoorsman and they adored the creek on the property! Although we took an approx. 30 min. drive to SML St Park (which we also loved) my little family would have been content to not leave the cabin property! We caught plenty of fish right there in the creek! We did make it to the Pigg River but I don't feel we found the best spot there, although my husband caught several fish! The cabin's furnishings were very comfortable and we found all the proper cooking utensils we needed to make a few scrumptious summer feasts (produce we brought from our own garden at home but saw plenty of beautiful produce for sale even at gas stations!) We visited Pino's Pizza in Chatham and it was lovely. My kids say it was their favorite vacation ever taken by far and I must agree, with my own maiden trip to SML some 18 yrs ago right in the running. We are even talking about buying property! We thoroughly enjoyed the property. Do be prepared to come into close contact with some wildlife, which doesn't faze us. But watch your garbage!! Raccoons took a good look through ours! Also found some bear scat along the creek bank AND much to my husband's glee what he is was pretty sure was a panther's track at the Pigg River, esp after talking to locals about sightings. My husband has hunted from eastern Canada all the way through each state to Florida and the elusive panther is one animal he has never seen. But not to worry, no sign of tracks anywhere near the cabin site! Hope that doesn't scare anyone, we are just a nature loving family and as far as the cabin itself we only saw deer and raccoon and a bunny. Great early morning walking. We loved the fire pit. Only a few cons, like a cheap full length mirror would be nice & we did feel a tad more light cleaning was necessary upon arrival but it was very cozy and nice decor. And not sure if I overlooked it in listing but my mom has rheumatoid arthritis & the steps are a little steep. Just something to consider if a health problem would impair walking steep steps. My mom did just fine and said she loved it so much she would stay there again. Overall, I still give it a 5 star rating. And Michele the owner made my last minute booking so easy! Oh! And I tried out both beds the first two nights but the couch is the real winner!"

  • Great stay, beautiful view, nice cottage

    "My husband and I spent our 40th anniversary at Summer Breeze Cottage. The view was amazing and the gazebo right on the lake was perfect. We enjoyed the large deck overlooking the lake with string lights that made the outdoor space very special at night. We brought our boat, so the covered dock was very important for us. The cottage was very nice and clean with a lot of class in the decor and furnishings. Most important was the way Debbie worked with us to make everything about our first trip to Smith Mountain great. We will be back."

  • Exactly What My Soul Needed!

    "This home is exactly what I was looking for. Nothing super fancy, just nice and clean! Perfect location close to my family in Virginia. Nice wrap around porch. Attention to detail and secret little personal touches. Jessica Bailey was amazing to work with. Such a sweet person. Had the most wonderful vacation. I loved this home and can't wait to visit again!"

  • Great Condo!

    "My family enjoyed a great stay at SML! The condo location was perfect. The cove was super easy to boat in and out of, as well as, paddle boarding and swimming. The condo had everything we needed! Would highly recommend it and plan to visit again!"
