    Sans Souci at Smith Mountain Lake is a world apart from other overnight accommodations in the area. Sans Souci is French for 'care free.' There could not be a more apt description for this very special property. We are located in the most beautiful and pristine corner of the most scenic lake in the mid-Atlantic region of the US.

    Sans Souci offers stunning views of Smith Mountain & a 5,000 acre wilderness preserve from a point lot. Porch, patio, beach &...

From the location -- a perfect spot on Smith Mountain Lake across from a nature preserve -- to the like-new quality of the house; the separate, quiet, bed & breakfast quarters; the beautifully kept grounds... the setting is ideal. But best of all are Anne and Bill who run a B&B that is highly professional but casual at the same time. They offer very useful advice about the area, keep an immaculate and comfortable guest space, and were always available for our questions or (admittedly few) requests. They are as happy engaging in some morning conversation as letting you alone to do your own thing while they go about their day.

All that said, breakfast soon became an event not to be missed. Outstanding restaurant-quality dishes -- a welcome surprise each morning -- enjoyed privately on a deck overlooking the water and the trees. Is hard to overstate how excellently the day began, giving us the fuel either to go out exploring the region, take a walk through the lovely...

Words hardly do justice to this amazing bed and breakfast. The guest suite is very comfortable. We watched movies at night in our own living area and we even had our meals there. The location is unbelievable. Smith Mountain Lake is beautiful. Our stay at Sans Souci was so serene, we left with a deep level of relaxation. And on top of all that, you have Anne's incredible breakfasts. She is a hostess par excellence. If you want a top quality experience, stay here! more
