About the property

Private Lakefront Cottage

Come visit the newly renovated Firefly Cottage (formally Coveside Cottage #2) and enjoy a little bit of luxury at the lake. Like our Facebook page for updates on the renovation and to enter our annual weekend getaway giveaway!

Enjoy a scenic view when you are relaxing in the clean and modern family room or having drinks on the deck.

The cottage is nestled high among the trees, yet is only 50 feet from the lake.

The cottage has undergone a complete renovation featuring new flooring, new cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, custom tiled shower, central air/heat, and new lighting. The cottage also has a washer/dryer and trash pickup service that is included as part of the rent.

Enjoy cooking out on the outdoor grill (propane included), while your friends or family swim off of one of two private docks. Electric outlets are available at the dock. Feel free to bring your boat or jetski as well. You can tie up to a total of 4 boats.

Our location allows close access to local marinas and the main channel. The cottage is only 5-10 minutes to getting gas, grocery store, restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. The marinas offer a variety of boat rentals to suit your personal needs along with boat launching ramps. Boat over to Bridgewater Plaza in less than 10 minutes for lunch, dinner, or dessert and entertainment. The cottage is only a 5 minute drive to Diamond Hill General Store to grab gas, food, or wine/beer. The cottage is only a 10 minute drive to Food Lion which is the closest and only grocery store on the Bedford county side of the lake. Drive 10 minutes to go over the bridge connecting Franklin County and visit Westlake Center for restaurants, shopping, and the movie theater.

Relax in the evenings in front of the electric fireplace while channel surfing the flatscreen cable TV. Or relax on the deck in the evenings surrounded by 360 soffit lighting under the eaves.

Why Cameron and Angie Jordan chose Smith Mountain Lake Area

This property is the perfect property for a vacation. It is not too big, it is different then staying in a typical house, and it is only 50 feet from the water.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

Our first time renting this property. We had a good time. The surrounding trees made it cool and relaxing to sit on the deck even though the temperature was in the low 90s. The owner provided great customer service and was very responsive and attentive. The cottage was well maintained, but light on amenities (no WiFi, linens, paper goods, towels provided) not really a big deal if you forget to bring something there are plenty of stores nearby. We would rent again.

Cozy and quiet

We have been using the same house for the last 3 years--always clean and location perfect. We will continue to use the house.

oudoor space not worth the stay

  • 2 of 5

This cottage was adorable on the inside. The outdoor space was terrible. Dirty and hardly enough space to sit on deck. Picnic table unusable. Furniture on dock that we would not even sit on. Stairs and path to dock were dangerous in our opinion. Stairs had weeds growing through them and path was mostly weeds and so steep. The trip from house to dock would be difficult for young children or elderly. No wifi, and something wrong with TV for first few days. Manager had to come fix it. I feel this property was misrepresented. Really too bad since interior was so cute. Also construction going on at cottage next door most of our week starting very early in the morning. That was not thought out well by owner`

Owner's Response: I'm sorry we were unable to make you happy. We had the deck pressure washed on Monday and grass mowed while you were there. It had been delayed due to rain. I was happy to reprogram the channels on the TV after your daughter deleted them. You told me the walk to the dock was as steep as it looked in the pictures and we advertise with no Wifi, so I'm not sure why you felt it was misrepresented. I'm thankful you were able to use your hotspot. We had the driveway scraped after the hard rains and the owner of the cottage next door had painting done and new countertops installed. I'm surprised this was so inconvenient, but I wish you would have accepted my offer to leave and receive a full refund. I understand some people can't be pleased. Future travelers, Please read the rest of our reviews!

All you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

Everything advertised and more. great location, clean, amazing views, totally relaxing corner of a small cove. Not a single negative to say about the whole week. A bit of a walk/climb from the dock to the house, but no different from any others we saw. If we dont buy something before next summer, will be back.

A great vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

You will definitely enjoy a vacation at the Firely Lake House. The cottage is supplied with everything you need (except your own sheets and towels). The kitchen is beautiful and equipped with everything you have at home. It is very relaxing to sit out on the porch and relax. Cameron was very helpful in getting my boat in the water and over to the private dock. A Food Lion supermarket is right near by as well as a variety of restaurants and neat places to explore to including wineries. My girlfriend and I are already talking about when we can take our next vacation at the Firefly.
