Destination guide

Book a Roanoke cabin rental

If you want the best of both the city and nature, Roanoke is a top spot for Smith Mountain Lake cabins. The vibrant city is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and boasts many attractions, including the neon Mill Mountain Star landmark and the Taubman Museum of Art, which has collections from John Singer and other American artists. If you have the kids with you, the Mill Mountain Zoo is a great place to get up close to wildlife, and they'll also like the Virginia Museum of Transportation with its aviation, automotive, and railroad exhibits. The landscape around the city is filled with mountain hiking trails for fun in the outdoors.

Things to do

A star is born in the rolling hills of Roanoke

Perched atop Mill Mountain is one of the city's most iconic landmarks -- the Roanoke Star, a vibrant neon installation dating from 1949. While you're there, be sure to visit Mill Mountain Zoo. Beyond that, Roanoke is all museums, all the time. Try the Taubman Museum of Art, the Virginia Museum of Transportation, the History Museum of Western Virginia, or the Roanoke Pinball Museum, just to name a few (we could keep going). For a taste of local railroad history, check out the historic photos at the O. Winston Link Museum, housed in the city's landmark former train station.


They call it Virginia's Music City for a reason

There's plenty to keep the night owls happy at a Roanoke vacation rental. Countless clubs around town offer up regular live music, and there's always something on at the Roanoke Performing Arts Theatre. The more outdoorsy types will love all the hiking, biking, and climbing opportunities in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The river's prime territory for kayaking, canoeing, and championship fishing, as well as some top-notch birding and wildlife viewing. The Blue Ridge Parkway is made for scenic drives (especially in fall). In town, you'll find more than enough festivals, markets, and shops to keep you busy for days.


There's a season for every mood in Music City

No matter which season your crew prefers, there's a Roanoke vacation rental that fits the bill. The warmest months are June to August, when highs soar well into the 80s and 90s (sometimes even higher). The lows dip below freezing from December to February, when you might see light snows once in awhile. Weather in the shoulder seasons of spring and fall can see wide swings, with temps anywhere from the 40s to the 70s in April to May and September to October. Don't miss the fall leaves along the Blue Ridge Parkway, which peak between mid-October and early November.

Natural features

Where the hills just keep on rolling along

The verdant Roanoke Valley in southwest Virginia is known for its picture-perfect rolling green hills, dotted occasionally with pastoral farmland. Dominating the landscape are the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains, covered in trees that hide miles of hiking trails for exploring and getting that fresh air fix. Cutting straight through town, the winding Roanoke River brings the wildlife to the city, making for some of the best birdwatching for miles around (be sure to pack those binoculars). If you prefer your wildlife encounters to happen from a safe distance, there's conveniently a zoo in town.
