Amazing Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was perfect! The house is roomy and comfortable. The kitchen is large enough for everyone to help out. We didn't really use the game room but sat in there just to get a feel for it so maybe next time we'll bring our grandson and it's a really fun, safe room! Our favorite though was the patio where we spent most of our time staring out into the woods and listening to all the wonderful sounds of nature! There are trees in every direction and, although it was raining all weekend, appears to be a great place to hike! Can't wait to do that next time!!! Thanks so much for a great stay!!!

Great spacious Mountain home.

My family just spent Christmas weekend here. We have a large family and it fit everyone well. Everything we needed was there, and was even decorated with a Christmas tree. Would definitely stay again

Amazing view and comfortable home :)

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good time. The view was gorgeous and the house had plenty of room for our family of 5 adults and 3 kids. We even played some pretty serious games of hide & seek. We went to Smith Mountain Lake, went hiking through the forest behind the house, went fishing, played baseball and had campfires...was awesome to have family time in the country. Will definitely visit again!

My husband and I needed to just get away and we ended up booking this home via the owner on the same day that we arrived!!! The house and property are beautiful. It gave us the peace that we needed to reconnect.
