We were visiting Smith Mountain Lake but did not want to stay in the Park and were very pleased with our find. The room was very comfortable and quiet (no road noise at all). If we head that way again, we will certainly stay again.

As mentioned by the other reviewers, this is a gem. We wanted to stay close to Smith Mtn Lake, but not right on the lake. Altivista is a nice drive to get to either side of the lake.

My husband and I stayed there this past weekend and had a great experience. The room was tastefully decorated, fantastic bathroom, and nice small touches that made us feel as though we were in a bed and breakfast. The best part...the cost was the same (if not a little less) that staying in one of the other two chain hotels.... More
