“Great place”
Reviewed March 24, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Loved the privacy. Especially enjoyed hiking on the path by the creek behind the cabin. We have stayed in several cabins over the years. Compared to others, this cabin had more space, good kitchen appliances and cooking utensils, comfortable beds, great tub and shower, great-tasting water, good water pressure, very hot water. Only snag; we understood we had a limited amount of internet usage, but we could not tell how fast we were using it. It is reasonable to limit internet usage, but knowing how to gauge usage is an inherent aspect of such a limitation. Otherwise everything was great.

“Off the beaten path”
Reviewed October 18, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Cabin was well kept, however the dishwasher had failed, but that happens, and you get over it. We enjoyed the area, as this is why we booked, where we wanted to be, backroads southwest VA. One caution, a low profile car may have difficulty accessing the cabin path. We had a Ford Escape SUV so it wasnt an issue. The cabin was comfortable, it was early in year, so we didnt do much out in the yard. No one bothered us, it was relaxing, as it is "off the beaten path ". Enjoyable !

Thank you for the review, the dishwasher is actually tripped by the plug sometimes, but it is brand new purchased in July, I will make sure that this information is in the hospitality app for future guests.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay, you are welcome back anytime! Michelle and Lonnie McDonald- owners

“Great place to completely disconnect from hectic life”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015
1
person found this review helpful

My husband and I spent the last 3 days with two 17 year old boys and our dogs. It was a great place to just get away and forget about the hectic world we live in. We loved it that the boys were outside pretty much the whole weekend exploring and creek walking! It was so nice not to see them on the video games or on their cell phones. We didn't even let them have the wifi password! We watched movies, played games, napped , took family hikes and had a great time around the fire pit in the evenings. We took a day trip over to Smith Mountain Lake State Park where the boys swam and we hiked. If we didn't have the dogs with us, we would have rented kayaks. Although we didn't go to any this time, the next time we plan on hitting up the wineries and the brewery. The cabin was perfectly in the middle of nowhere but close enough to get places if desired. We love it!

“Great Cabin in the woods!!”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We came across this cabin while planning our family vacation for my husband, 2 teenagers and myself at Smith Mountain Lake. This cabin is affordable and very well kept. The cabin had everything supplied for us just as if you were in your own home. Beds and couch was very comfy!! We loved the fact we could bring our dog and he could run around outside. We enjoyed boating at Leesville Lake and Smith Mountain Lake, both lake about 20-30 minutes away. We enjoyed our stay at the cabin!!!
