This charming, rustic, spacious A-frame is situated on the woods on Smith Mountain Lake. When you step foot into this magic chalet, you'll know that you're on a holiday. Enjoy the clean lake water while swimming, sailing, catching citation fish, water-skiing, and parasailing. Enjoy basking in the sunshine as your eyes marvel at the wide, deep-water cove and the main channel view (upstream from Marker R-26). A floating dock adjoins a sun dock where your children can entertain themselves doing cannonballs from the top -- or diving into the deep lake water. Several marinas are nearby for food, tackle, and launching boats. A little farther upstream is Hales Ford Bridge, a center of activity that includes shops, restaurants, miniature golf, ice cream shops, and nightlife. On your return trip, the night sky will offer a panoramic view of the heavens.
You needn't worry about food essentials; grocery shopping is less than ten minutes away from the chalet at the intersection of 122 and Hendricks Store Road (655). You'll delight in the attractively furnished chalet with its view of the lake from all three levels. The chalet was recently carpeted and decorated to complement its place in this natural setting. The lower level has a completely new, enlarged bath. Your bed linens, towels, soaps, paper products, trash bags and toiletries are all you'll need for an unforgettable holiday. Rental periods are weekly from Saturday afternoon at 3:00 pm until Saturday morning at 10:00 am. Thirty minutes down the road is the historic town of Bedford, which was voted one of the best towns of its size in America. While in Bedford, you must visit the National D-Day Memorial. If you want some variety, you can drive, motorcycle, or hike the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains or the Peaks of Otter -- which are just 45 miles away from the chalet.
Both Explore Park (near Roanoke) and Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest residence (near Lynchburg) are less than one hour away. NASCAR's Martinsville race (held twice a year) is also a one-hour drive away. The Booker T. Washington and Jubal Early childhood homes are just a short drive from Smith Mountain Lake. Charlottesville (Monticello and the University of VA) and Blacksburg, VA (Home of Virginia Tech) are just two hours away. Ferrum College, with its summer dinner theatre, is just one hour away. Once you visit the chalet, you'll want to return again and again.
