About the property

One bedroom patio apartment - sleeps 4 - private, comfy, & quiet!!!!

This property is so private, comfy, and peaceful!! A perfect paradise for a relaxing and stress free getaway. Or celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or just a weekend getaway!! The Smith Mtn. Lake state park is a half a mile away with a beautiful sandy beach & rentals for any type of watercraft from 2-men kayaks to jet skis. There is also a very accessible boat ramp for all you fishermen. The park also has many hiking trails & picnic areas. It is about 45 minutes into Roanoke or Lynchburg. And about 15 minutes to nearest grocery store, but you may want to bring your own organic food for your stay. The apartment features a 1-bedroom with queen bed, a sleeper queen sofa in living room.

There is a very short path (350 feet) to day dock for swimming, kayaking, and tie ups for boats or other watercraft. ****I JUST ADDED TWO KAYAKS, PADDLES AND LIFE JACKETS to the property for guests. KAYAK AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE OWNER WILL NOT ASSUME ANY LIABILITY FOR ACCIDENTS, INJURIES, OR LOSS OF EQUIPMENT!!! Rental guests are responsible for loss of equipment and will have to replace items lost. The rental quests are responsible for securing kayaks and equipment on the patio upon their departure. There is no boat slip, nor electricity at day dock. No smoking is allowed!! Smoke-Free & Stress-Free!! Ample parking for a boat trailer, etc. Central AC. Pet-friendly - 1 small pet under 20 pounds. Tenant is responsible for any damage to rental property. Some other amenities are: Wintergreen Ski Resort is about 1 and a half hours from the apartment.

About Beverly Miller

I'm a retired art teacher after 30 some years of teaching. I love the lake and it provides some solace for nurturing my creative spirit as an artist as well as an art-educator. My mediums are painting and photography. I grew up in this area and received my education through to a masters in this region. I have a West Highland Terrier named Auggie and he is a great kayaking partner. We love the lake!!!!!

Beverly Miller purchased this apartment in 2009

Lovely, clean and quiet.

We loved it! The deer, the dock, the kayaks were all wonderful. The only limitation was not having a sink to clean dishes.

Peaceful, relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and clean. We loved sitting on the patio enjoying the beautiful backyard. You can see a piece of the lake from there while watching the deer and squirrels wander. We used the kayaks every day to explore the lake. We enjoyed meeting the owner and found her to be very helpful. We'll be back soon I hope.

Exactly as advertised.

Owner was very friendly and accommodating. House was clean and had everything we needed. Saw numerous deer in the backyard and we enjoyed going to SML State Park which was minutes away. We would very much recommend it to anyone looking for a nice relaxing vacation.
