Expansive property in peaceful setting!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent several days around Labor Day at this home. It is a large property with plenty of space. The kitchen has everything you will need and a large family will not feel crowded. Property manager Mandy was very helpful and made sure our stay was as expected! Highly recommend to any family.

Dover, OH

Great Setting, Lovely accomodations

  • 5 of 5

7 fogies from Dover Ohio have visited the area for several years and this is the finest place that we have stayed. We come to play golf, fish (not too successfully, but still fun), eat around (we enjoy Sharkey's in Radford), and enjoy each others company and the surrounding vistas. We plan to return. JGHagloch

Beautiful, comfortable lake house!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Florida with eight of our children including two little ones that we are in the process of adopting. My husband's mom came down from West Virginia to spend the week with us and get to know them! We all had a great time! The house has plenty of room for everyone. It is very quiet and in a fairly remote neighborhood with about a dozen other houses all facing the lake. We did quite a bit of sightseeing while there, though, traveling to Roanoke to visit Black Dog Salvage one day, to Mount Airy, NC to see the Mayberry/Andy Griffith attractions one day and to Fort Chiswell to visit the animal park and do some antique shopping one day. The location was great for exploring and coming back to peace and quiet in the evening. We rented a pontoon boat from Claytor Lake Water Sports one day, also. (They weren't officially open on weekdays yet for the season but we called ahead and were able to make arrangements with them.) We would absolutely stay again! Thank you so much to Mandy and the Bennetts for an amazing spring break vacation!
