“June 2013 Family Retreat”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Phenomenal view, great food and the hospitality was fantastic. The hosts went way way above and beyond. This was a great place for our large family gathering and I would highly recommend joining the Sanders for a mountain stay. Our family loved the serene setting and 5 acres of property to wander, playing kick ball in the lawns and throwing horse shows.

Not only is the house beautiful and the views spectacular, but the Inn Keepers were fantastic! The amount of care and attention they gave to our very large group was beyond belief. They really went the extra mile to make sure that we all had what we needed. The location was convenient to many activities and we could not have had a better time. Thank you Gail and Keith for all that you did!

What a wonderful vacation! This B&B is truly idyllic and the hosts could not be any more welcoming and gracious. The beds are comfortable, the food is fantastic and plenty, and the mountain views are spectacular and peaceful. Of course our kids loved the bunkhouse and s'mores around the fire pit each night. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit and will return again soon. Sanders Mountain View Lodge is true Southern hospitality at its best!

Nice B&B. The location is great. With the backdrop of the mountains of Southwest Virginia. The food and hospitality fantastic. If you are touring the area in a motorcar you will find the roads great for driving. The hosts are very friendly and you feel right at home. I would stay there again. Loved it.

Wonderful atmosphere for family getaway in the mountains. Lodge is spacious, comfortable, and peaceful. We spent night recently to see if this would work out for our children and grandkids later in summer. Hosts knocked themselves out to show us all the hot spots for outdoor adventure. We lined up reservations for bikes, noted picnic sites, fishing holes, and hiking trails. Even watched the sunset on White Top Mountain in less than 24 hours. Excellent food & hospitality.

Room Tip: Huge king suite, very comfy bed.

If you want a place to really relax and enjoy this is the place. Beautiful views of White Mountain. A deck overlooking the expansive yard. We've stayed in several of the named rooms such as Grandma's Attic, w/own bath, Suite in Paradise, private bath,cable tv, table to be served meals in the room, etc. They have a large tv room w/ movies, popcorn machine, library of books. Close the Creeper Trail - a gazebo out back with a firepit for relaxing evenings - they even have a bunkhouse for children w/bunk beds, tv, games, ac and all. For lovers, families you can't beat it. Did I mention the food, bona petite. wonderful. The owners are very gracious and accommodating. They went out of their way to make our stay superb. We just can't say enough about this place. We will definitely be going back again and again. Thanks Keith and Gail we had a great time. Carolyn and Fred Coutts

Room Tip: We stayed in the suite with private bath and also two other rooms. There really is no bad room. If...

SMVL is way over the top of B&Bs. They offer more than the ordinary with an immaculatly clean facility, comfortable rooms, large and airy dining and common rooms. Each suite has a fun and beautifully done theme, we have loved the Out of Africa suite on two stays.
There is a fully equiped exersize room with extensive equipment plus a sauna and indoor hot tub with a view of the mountains. A large reading and media room is there for relaxing after a full day of sightseeing, cycling the Creeper Trail, or visiting the many attractions in the area.
Keith and Gail prepare delicious meals with a great variety of home cooked menus. All this with quiet and spectacular views of the surounding mountains.
This is our favorite place when visiting or passing thru that part of the country, in fact, SMVL is a good reason to plan a vist to western Virginia. We are looking forward to our next visit with Keith and Gail at this home away from home.

Room Tip: Talk with Keith when making reservations about area activities. He has a wealth of information on t...
