LAKEWOOD LODGE ~ WEDDINGS, VACATIONS, VT AND RU EVENTS ~ SLEEPS 6 ADULTS

Claytor Lake Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6 adults)

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.)

CLOSED JANUARY AND FEBRUARY.

Guestbook comments from the owner
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!

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.

Great Family Time

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was perfect for our family. My 6 year old had a yard to run and explore, but it was not lake front so no worries about him going to close to water while playing outside. My 10 year old loved playing ball in the yard and swimming in the lake, fishing and kayaking. My 14 year old asked for direct TV and Wi-Fi and smores, which she got, plus she went outside with us and down to the lake, she even went out and enjoyed the swing. Yay!! My husband just wanted to fish with peace and quiet and have a nice soaking tub and I just wanted for us to be together, yet with comfortable space for all of us within reason. This cabin met all our needs for a great vacation. The extras in the cabin blew my mind, it was very thoughtfully done. The walk to the lake is not far at all and the cabin size was perfect for us. It is a fairly private setting. The photos of the cabin are true yet it is better then pictured. Kitchen is small but well supplied with nice appliances. Super clean and well maintained. Town is not too far if you wish to go somewhere but we were very content just staying put. Enjoyed eating meals on the deck, making a campfire and playing games in the yard. We definitely want to go back. We actually did two days of vacation and spent no money on those days! Yay again! Great pictures moments ! Good memories!

Life is Special, enjoy it one step at a time!

Thank you so much for opening your home up to us! Enjoyed every minute! Some much needed peace and quiet! Tinkerbell greeted us in the hammock with love and sweet kisses, I believe she would have laid between us the rest of the day, however, the fish had been fed and off she went. We appreciate you, such a sweet spirit of faith in the home! God is good! We can't wait to revisit!

Loved Every Minute!

  • 5 of 5
This wonderful cabin was better than advertised. Everything we needed was right at our fingertips. The cabin was very clean and comfortable, and I enjoyed the decor very much. Sitting on the covered porch as the sun set was a treat. Anyone wanting a nice week-end getaway will find this property a great value and an excellent choice for a longer stay. I plan to return for a week, and will recommend this place to my friends. The owners are to commended.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Lakewood Lodge is beautiful!!! It has verything you need and you feel right at home! It was the perfect spot for myself, my husband and 2 sons (15, 16) to have some time together and away from our busy schedules! There is so much to do in the area as well as just relaxing and enjoying a cup of coffee on the porch watching the deer! The boys all had fun on the river- kayaking and fishing! Highly recommened!! we will be back for longer that 4 days! The Vaughn's were wonderful! Pleasant and helpful but not hovering!

Better than you could hope for!

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely cabin, with exquisite detailing and furnishing in every room. Fully equipped with anything you could need. Spotless and extremely comfortable. The owners were a God-send with helpful suggestions for just the recreation spots and day trips right for us ... Mountain Lake, Gatewood Reservoir, Claytor Lake State Park, New River State Park Trail, etc. Usually after a week in one place my husband is ready to leave, but he said he wished he had a couple more days in this cabin. I did too! You won't be sorry you chose this place!

The Best Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
My parents and I, plus two dogs stayed at the lodge. The rest of the family stayed at the lakehouse and this created a perfect family reunion with enough room for all. You could walk or drive to each place and the dock, which I enjoyed the walk with my dog every morning. The properties are beautiful, clean and filled with everything you need from spices, condiments, papertowels, soap, etc. to crates, gates, grills, firepit, swings and large, beautiful yards for bocce ball and frisbee, and a huge porch which was perfect for cornhole or just relaxing on those peaceful mornings and a great place for the dogs to hang. The views from the lakehouse are amazing, overlooking the lake, and the lodge has a beautiful gazebo and fish pond, plenty of places for picture taking.

We ran into Sherry and Jerry a couple of times and they were always helpful with suggestions, requests or anything you may need.

We visited the State Park and enjoyed the sandy beach, swimming and hiking. We never made it to a restaurant because we enjoyed cooking at the lakehouse, the kitchen is huge, plenty of room for all and each family had a dinner night for all to enjoy.

I would recommend both places for a large group of people, with gatherings at the lakehouse. The lodge is perfect for a couple with kids or dogs. You can go from a romantic getaway to a family reunion, peaceful and relaxing to competitive games, cookouts or dining in and enjoy a large double-deck dock with plenty of chairs and room for sunning and swimming. And hammocks all around for lounging ... but be careful or you could be flipped on the ground ... lots of good stories and memories at Lakewood!

Thank you again Sherry and Jerry - we enjoyed every moment!
