Why Kim, Julie, Jeanette & Wil - Lake Retreat Rental Properties chose Smith Mountain Lake

We bought this property for its great setting on the lake, very close to the water in two sides. No big hike down to or up from the lake. Love the logs and plank interior.

Perfect vacation house

  • 5 of 5

It was the best vacation,ever. The house was perfect,warm and cozy. We used the fireplace every night. Sitting on the dick in the morning and in the evening with a glass of wine was so peaceful. We brought our German shepherd, who had a great time running in the yard and watching the ducks. Rented a pontoon boat and used the dock, which was great fun. Everything was perfect!

Relaxing, Enjoyable Property - Needs a Couple More Necessities

  • 3 of 5

I'll start by saying I've rented homes a Smith Mountain Lake for several years. The lake has become our getaway destination for a summer vacation and, more recently, the winter holidays. Therefore, I feel I have a reasonable context for evaluating this property. Overall we enjoyed our visit to this cabin. It had all the important qualities, but lacks a few details that could make this a better property. I would probably stay here again.

Pros: It has a rustic, authentic feel to it, creating a warm, cozy feeling. Everything upstairs is real wood. It has full length upper and lower decks which are great for socializing, reading, relaxing, etc. The home has an easy, intuitive layout. The kitchen is large and well suited for cooking for a full house. The interior furnishings and decorating match the log cabin feel. The bedrooms are about the right size, not too small. The large boat dock also has a canoe for guests to use. The lower level is a walkout basement with a large open area with a pool table a television viewing are. For us, the kids played downstairs, the adults socialized upstairs - worked out really well.

Cons: A week before our stay began we found out we needed to bring our own queen size sheets. I feel this should have been communicated in the property description or before we booked. We don't own any queen size beds, so this was somewhat of an inconvenience. I felt as if the $120 cleaning fee should have included washing sheets. It's the first property I've stayed at that didn't provide sheets. Once we arrived we found out that were lots of other things not in the house. We needed to make a couple trips to grocery store for small things like toilet paper, dish washing soap, hand soap, paper towels, cleaning spray, wash clothes, scrub brushes etc. You'll need to bring all your own cleaning supplies and toilet paper. Again, this is the first property I've stayed at that didn't provide these necessities.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you were taken by surprise in this way. It's customary on Smith Mountain Lake to bring your own sheets, soaps, paper supplies and such. This should have been communicate to you by Lake Retreat Properties. I know it is on their paperwork and website. But it is certainly a good suggestion to include that on the Homeaway site. Thank you, and again, I am sorry for your inconvenience. -kate

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I'm glad you like our Evergreen. It's so beautiful in the fall! I'm sorry you had a problem with the hot tub. My management company tells me that you noted on your departure that only half of the jets were functioning. It's possible that something was switched off. The hot tub is professionally serviced every week. I have notified the company of your issue, and they will get right on it. Thanks for letting us know.

Lovely home for relaxing and enjoying the lake!

  • 5 of 5

This year, we decided that what we most needed from our family vacation was relaxation. Evergreen provided that to perfection! The home’s rustic décor was warm and inviting, with plenty of room for us, our two adult children and our dog to sprawl on the couch and chat. We ate all of our meals on the long screened porch, which feels like being in a tree house. Having the bedrooms open to the porch too was such a treat – cool evening breezes all night long. We lounged on the dock (a short, easy walk from the lower patio), swam in the lake, canoed, and enjoyed the gorgeous view from the property. Nights included grilling, games of pool, and the hot tub. The home is clean and well-maintained, and the kitchen well-equipped. At the end of our week, we definitely were refreshed and restored by our visit. Can’t wait to return to this lovely home!

Nearest Airport
35 Miles
Car: necessary

Evergreen is located in the fabulous Mountain View Shores area near the Smith Mountain Lake dam. This part of Virginia is very near the famous Blue Ridge Parkway and south of Shenandoah National Park. You could not find a better place than rural Virginia to go antiquing. There are also places nearby on the lake to rent boats and seadoos; or you can even go parasailing on SML! But I don't think you'll have to leave Evergreen to have a great vacation week.

Other Activities: Deep Water Dock with covered Lift, PWC Lifts

While Evergreen is not wheelchair accessible, it is one of the closest homes to the waters edge you'll find on Smith Mountain Lake. From the high water mark of the 800 foot contour, Evergreen's hot tub corner is only 5 linear feet away. You'll find Evergreen has a very easily accessible waterfront for people who are ambulatory. You won't feel as if you've had a workout just going to the dock and back. Need to bring: sheets, towels, soaps and paper goods.
