About the property

Sleeps 16 in 6 bedrooms, 4 baths, Hot Tub, Canoe, Expansive Lake Front

Welcome to Glendalough, one of the first large family retreats built on beautiful Smith Mountain Lake. Glendalough boasts a most expansive wide water view of the lake, and the full breadth of Smith Mountain. The point property sits on 1023 feet of lake front, almost 5 acres of treed and open lawn, with two large docks and expansive water and mountain views. Sleeping 16 adults in 6 bedrooms with 4 baths, you'll find Glendalough is the perfect spot for a family reunion or corporate retreat. On the lower level screened porch- a beautiful 7 person Hot Tub!! There's even a canoe for those peaceful morning or sunset paddles in the cove. When you're not enjoying the waterfront activities, Glendalough has a 47 inch flat-screen TV in the family room, as well as a regulation size pool table. There's also a 42 inch flat-screen in the living room, and a TV upstairs, as well. Glendalough has it all!

Glendalough retains much of her original charm, but with a few modern conveniences. Central heat and air were added in 1997. You'll enjoy the satellite DirecTV, DVD and VCR players, stereo and tuner with both CD player and turntable for those old LPs. There's B2X Online Internet and wireless connectivity. NO smoking in the house, please.

Glendalough can sleep 16, with 4 full baths and an outdoor shower in season. Twelve may be served at the dining table, and there's seating for six more on the screened porch off the main floor.

Enjoy the 7 person Hot Tub on the lower level screened porch! And down on the dock, there's a canoe waiting for your enjoyment of the early morning mist or sunset over the lake.

Decorated with antiques and a period Adirondack styling, you'll feel comfortable and at home the minute you walk in the door, and straight out to one of the two screened porches. Enjoy the evening by the fire-pit. The lake surrounds the property on three sides and becomes your constant companion.

Week at Smith Mountain Lake

  • 5 of 5

My group spent a week at Glendalough and had a great time. The property met all of our needs and allowed for all to have fun. The firepit, dock area, hot tub and porches were the main gathering places for conversation, games and napping. The location was private enough for the kids to make a little noise and not worry about the neighbors, yet close enough to the marina's to meet the boating needs. This part of the lake was also great for pleasure crafting, water sports and fishing. Very comfortable furnishings, well equipped kitchen and house layout was perfect for our group. I will rent this property again and have shared my thoughts with family, friends and co workers. You have a real gem!!!!!
