Delight in the peaceful, natural setting and the ambiance of 'rustic luxury' at LAKEWOOD LODGE!!
Lakewood Lodge is a full log home; not your basic 'cabin.' It was built to be a private retreat and is a 'Step above.' Lakewood Lodge is a luxury rental with more amenities than similar properties. Read the comments - our guests agree!!
It is nestled in the rural mountains of Southwestern Virginia with only a 5 minute walk or drive to our private dock, where you can fish, canoe, kayak, dock your boat or just relax! Views are of the mountains, open fields, orchard and wooded area. There is only one other small house in view. Glimpses of the shimmering lake can be seen through the trees and from the upstairs, yet it is located far enough from the water to cushion you from early morning boat and jet ski noise.
The lodge is a perfect destination of its own or a jumping-off point for the many recreational activities the New River Valley offers. It is located 10 minutes from I - 81, and 2 New River Trail biking and hiking access points.
It is 45 minutes from Virginia Tech, 20 minutes from Radford University, 10 miles from Attimo Winery. The lodge is a wonderful lodging, without the crowds, for VT and RU home sporting events or graduations. (Recommend you book one year in advance for graduations and as soon as sporting schedules are publicized.)
The lodge is 10 minutes from 2 public boat launches for Claytor Lake; 20 minutes from the state park. Pontoon and pleasure boat rentals may be arranged through local providers.
PERFECT FOR PROPOSING, FOR WEDDINGS AND HONEYMOONS!!
We can help you plan your special day and have local vendors ready to help you with your wedding preparations!! Handcrafted, 'rustic luxury' gazebo with landscaped fish pond and small waterfall create the perfect setting for that special occasion!
Secluded and romantic with a honeymoon suite, 2 person heated jacuzzi tub... Loads of ambiance. Attention to detail.
As the builders, owners and managers of Lakewood, we do everything we can to make your stay restful and rejuvenating, just like the vacations we like to take. Therefore, we do not encourage house parties, reunions or loud gatherings.
We live close by so we can be there quickly if the need should arise.
We can't wait to share our world with you!
If you need more room for a larger family, ask about our sister property, Lakeview House, for a beautiful view of the lake!
Call/email even if your desired dates are blocked out! We can refer you to other similar area lodgings.
(Prefer a 3 day minimum for holiday weekends.)

Jerry and Sherry Vaughn have been married for almost 40 years and have lived at Claytor Lake for 38 years, Jerry is retired from Verizon and Sherry is a retired educator/counselor. They raised 2 children, Kristin and Jeremy in the same neighborhood where Lakewood Lodge is located. Jeremy, among other things, is a licensed contracter and along with his dad, did the beautiful finish work inside the log home. Jerry hand-crafted the wedding gazebo on site and takes care of the property maintenance, fish pond and orchard. Sherry planned and decorated Lakewood herself, as well as doing the property management, the interior maintenance and assists in planning weddings and other events. They are hands-on owners and managers and delight in meeting and 'spoiling' their guests.
Sherry purchased this lodge in 2007
We built Lakewood Lodge, a beautiful log home, on the same private road and in the same community where we raised our children. We are so blessed to be living in this wonderful community and to have beautiful Claytor Lake in our front yard and the New River Trail at our back door! We just wanted to share our little slice of paradise with others who appreciate simple pleasures and family togetherness!
This property is unlike other rentals where we have stayed. We have taken all the things that we like about rentals we have visited and added those things that we WISHED they had to create a unique lodging in Lakewood Lodge. Located away from city lights and 'touristy' venues, couples and families are able to find quality time and activities to bring them closer together through their closeness to nature.
There is no better place to get away for the weekend and just relax. The cabin and lake was so beautiful. We enjoyed the paddle boat even though we just went in circles for a while :) The cabin had everything you need, it makes you feel like you are at home and it smelled so good. Sherry and Jerry were so kind and made you feel very welcoming. They are also very familiar with the area so if you needed help finding something they knew exactly how to get there. This is something that we will do at least once a year!! Can't wait to visit again!
Our week-end at Lakewood Lodge met all of our expectations. The Lodge is cozy and well-equipped. We hiked on the New River Trail (10 - 15 minute drive from the Lodge), visited Attimo Winery (similar distance), and had Sunday brunch at the Draper Mercantile (recommend this stop - wish we had arrived early enough on Friday to go there for live music). It would be hard to beat this if you're looking for someplace that's away from everything and still has options for getting out to eat or enjoy local amenities. We'd definitely return!
The cabin was beyond perfect which made for a wonderful overnight stay and the grounds were beautiful! We enjoyed a walk with our two dogs on the New River Trail (which was very close to the cabin) and returned for a relaxing evening. Kudos to you!
Our stay at the Lakewood Lodge was everything we had hoped for and more. The lodge was very comfortable and homey with everything we needed for a quiet, relaxing stay. It is very obvious that a lot of care and thought went into decorating and preparing the facility to give it a wonderful homey ambience and much credit to the owners and managers of Lakewood is due. Even outside of the cabin afforded a relaxing atmosphere among nature with the pond, gazebo and fire pit, where we could sit and take in the starry nights or observe visiting deer on the grounds. We can't wait for our next visit and hope to stay even longer than we did this time. I highly recommend Lakewood as a vacation spot or for a weekend getaway.
Our large family did not stay at the lodge but our friends did. They found it to be comfortable and relaxing. They especially enjoyed watching the deer frolic around the yard in the early morning.
Our large family filled the Lakewood House. It was just perfect for our birthday celebration. We stayed in the kitchen the majority of the time ...what a special place! The grand kids enjoyed the big yard. The only thing that was a little problem was the back bedroom was cold for sleeping.
We cannot thank you enough for sharing your homes with us. We definitely would love to come back again!
My family stayed here for a long weekend and everything was great. We had our 6 month old son as well as our dogs, and the house was easily able to accommodate all those needs. The owners were extremely nice and helpful through the booking and pre-arrival process. When we got to the house, it was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Great place to just lounge around and watch a movie, or enjoy the beautiful views of the grounds from the big wrap around porch. We were just there for a relaxation getaway weekend, but with the easy lake access and "water toys" available, we'll probably want to come back for more of an adventurous weekend as well. Highly recommended.
We stayed at Lakewood Lodge to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Everything was perfect! It was beautiful, clean, well stocked with everything we needed to cook our anniversary meals, and so relaxing! We enjoyed the lodge location inside and out. We loved the outdoor scenery for some anniversary pictures! We look forward to celebrating future anniversaries at the cabin!
