Overview

Smith Mountain Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 6, 3 bedrooms, private dock, Ideal for Reunions

The Cedar Cabin at Silver Bay View Cottages offers grand and spectacular views of the lake and Smith Mountain in a quiet, private setting populated with beautiful Loblolly pines and sweeping lawns. A private deep-water dock offers easy access for boating, swimming and sunbathing. The cabin is located on a point that marks the entry to Witcher Creek, one of the best fishing areas on the lake. Between the Cedar Cabin and the Main House, the Point offers a combined capacity of up to 16 people, making it the ideal location for family reunions. We can accommodate up to 24 people between four properties that include the Main House, the Cedar Cabin and Cabins 1 and 2 that are a 3 minute walk away. Be sure and check out these other properties as well.

Swimming: There is nothing more enjoyable than to stretch out on the dock with a good book, and then dive into the clear, warm water for a refreshing swim. The lake is one of the cleanest in the East Coast and as you swim or relax, you can look across to undeveloped wilderness.

Hot Tub: The 7' 8' Hot Tub accommodates up to 6 people with views of the lake and mountains.

Boating: There may be no better lake in the Mid-Atlantic region for boating. The 20,000 acres of Smith Mountain Lake and its 40-mile length make it a perfect place for water skiing, speed boating, canoeing, kayaking or sailing. Power boats and wave runners can be rented at several locations on the lake, including: Bridgewater Plaza Marina (Boats can also be picked up at the State Park), Parrot Cove (Parrot Cove also rents Kayaks), Parkway Marina (formerly knows as Saunders Marina), Mitchell's Point Marina or Virgil Naff Sea Doo (wave runners only). The closest boat launch and boat rental is Mitchell's Point Marina.

Fishing: Fishing opportunities at Silver Bay View Cottages are unbelievable. The properties are located on Witcher Creek where the stripers spawn every spring. The lake is regularly stocked with game fish, and contains striped bass, large and small mouth bass, muskies, northern pike, and an assortment of small game fish. Fishing guides are available to introduce you to the lake, including: Captain Bert's Fishin' Charters, Mike's Striper Guide Service, Rockfish Adventures.

Why Jim Erler, Manager LakeAway Vacation Rentals chose Smith Mountain Lake

The Erlers purchased Cabin 1 in 1993 and began offering it as a rental a few years later. As the rental business grew, they purchased Cabin 2 and soon learned that there was a desparate need for accomdations large enough for reunions. When the Main House and Cedar Cabin became available in 2002, they purchased them and began major rennovations to prepare them for large reunions. Since 2003 Silver Bay has been a first choice on Smith Mountain Lake for reunions.

What makes this cabin unique

The Cedar Cabin is at the Point View location and offers lovely vistas of Smith Mountain Lake. It is the largest of the open beam cedar cabins, capable of accommodating up to 6 overnight guests.

Charming Lake Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful lake vacation at Cedar Cabin! The cabin is cozy and well appointed with nice appliances and comfy furniture. The beds were comfortable and it is so quiet and dark at night! The deck is very large and lovely for outdoor meals or just watching the boats. The lake is very clean for swimming, and you can fish right off the dock for little panfish. The hill to the dock is quite steep so be ready for a leg workout! This was a great introduction for us to the charm of Smith Mountain Lake and we hope to return soon! Thank you Mr. and Mrs. E.!

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just what we needed for a relaxing week. The cabin is beautiful and the views are phenomenal, in addition the stars at night and the sunset can be viewed from the living room. We enjoyed our time and learned a lot about the area and were able to travel with our dogs which helped to make the trip even more enjoyable.

Great cabin on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was exactly as described - plenty of room, clean, fantastic hot tub with an amazing view (and very easy to use), plenty of afternoon sun exposure... Jim - you were a great host! I so enjoyed meeting you. You went above and beyond, and we really enjoyed the ride in your boat! The weather wasn't 'hot-ski-sun-boating' while we were there, but we enjoyed the hot tub, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and hiking in the nearby State Park. It was a super-relaxing part of our vacation. Jim was very helpful before and during our trip. He even skyped with me before-hand to give me an idea of driving directions and things to do in the area. I would definitely recommend this cabin and hope that life brings my path that way again. Jim - if you and your wife ever come our way, I hope you'll drop me a line!

The cabin is very well maintained and the view is beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We had an overall 5 star experience at this cabin. Most of our stay was outdoors enjoying the beautiful lake and relaxing on the cabins nice deck. The view of the mountains and lake is just amazing. The cabin has a nice dock if you plan on bringing a boat or jet skis. The boat launch is approximately 5 miles away from the cabin. We will be staying at this cabin again in the future.
