Better than expected

MichaelXV Reston, VA

I was really surprised at how maintained they keep this place. Everything about my stay was perfect. The marina is not that far away and I just followed the ridge line to find the house from my wave runner. If you don't have a good sense of direction, this may be a challenge for you. There is a store right down the street and another one about six miles away (very $$$), so I wasn't worried about the little things (jelly, eggs, bread, aloe, etc.) The dump isn't that far so disposal was a piece of cake (remember to double wrap...smell lasts a while). I highly recommend spending a week or two at this rental.


Plush Rustic!

This is an absolutely beautiful house! We walked in and were automatically smitten with the huge open area with the awesome view of the lake! The great room is big enough to have been divided into comfortable areas to sit and do whatever you want: sit and enjoy the beautiful view; play a game or solve a jigsaw puzzle at the "game" table; vegged in front of the flat screen TV; cozy up with loved ones on a cold night in front of the rustic stone fireplace or just sit and listen to the XM Radio!
The kitchen was beautiful with granite counter tops and everything you need to make a wonderful meal!
3 standard bedrooms with the master having a luxury walk-in, 3 head tiled shower! WOW!
All in all, we had a wonderful time here and would definitely recommend this home to everyone!

Our Home away from Home

Reedie Brandywine, Maryland

Our family has been enjoying the Lodge for 10 years. It is a beautiful place to relax, laugh, eat, swim, sun, boat and read. Our family enjoys the well equipped kitchen for our annual "Cook Offs" we all love to cook and it's a pleasure in the updated lodge kitchen. The Lodge and Cedar Key area is always immaculate and comfortable. The water and mountain views are breath taking. We also rent Cabin 6 and it gives us the best of both worlds, being close to all the family with a place to go if you just want a little peace and quiet. The cabin is also well decorated and equipped. We have had little reason to contact the owners but they have always been available for us. I would be delighted to recommend Cedar Key as the best vacation home for all ages. My husband does use a cane but can get around just fine, the walk down to the water, via the road is a wonderful way to get a little exercise on vacation.

A wonderful week!

My husband and I are seasoned travelers and we both think this week was one of the best vacations we've ever had! The Lodge was lovely, with beautiful views of the water and mountains. Upon arrival, we were delighted to find it VERY clean, furnished beautifully and we loved the beautiful, well supplied kitchen and lovely bathrooms!! Especially the master bath! The deck, overlooking the mountains and water was the most serene spot. We enjoyed most of our meals out there as well. If you don't want to cook, there are good restaurants in the area. The Lodge also has a beautiful stone fireplace that has also encouraged us to come back in the fall. If you are looking for a beautiful spot, great house with super amenities, you can't go wrong! We will be back every year!!

Loved it!


We spent a week in the Enchanted Cabin and absolutely loved it! Mr and Mrs Yowell were very friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend the Cabin for your vacations at SML!!!!

My husband and I live in Northern Virginia. We were anxious to leave all the traffic and chaos behind. We did nothing but relax. We never even turned on the TV. With the view from the deck, how could you be inside? The only two that enjoyed it more, was our two labs, Lucy and Daisy, who were exhausted each night from all the swimming and fetching they did! Thanks for allowing us to bring our dogs and we will definitely be back!

Peaceful and Relaxing


We vacationed for a week in this cabin last year and it was a great experience. The view is just breathtaking and the cabin was very cozy and comfortable. We had the opportunity to watch deer, from across the lake, chipmunks, squirrels, all kinds of birds just romping around and feeding etc. We rented a boat from Parrot Cove which was just great for the week and spent all the time we could just fishing and touring the lake area. We did not have much luck with catching fish in the cove but we still enjoyed trying. We were able to catch some cat fish off of the dock and enjoyed them in the morning for breakfast. Outside of the cove fishing was pretty good. The water is very clean and swimming off the dock was great if you do not mind being nibble on........... It is our hope to go back and stay at this cabin again one day and I would recommend this cabin. Anywhere we went, the people were so friendly and made us feel at home. Smith Mountain is our new vacation spot....if you want beauty and relaxation....give it a try. The landlord was very nice and easy to work with as far as answering any questions, pointing out shopping areas etc.....

Absolutely Charming!!!


We have stayed at the cabin a number of times and thought it was a good time to share what we thought! It is a charming place for a romantic getaway or fun to share with another couple. The deck, off the living area, directly overlooks the water. It is one of the most tranquil, serene settings we've experienced. Great restaurants and boat rentals are just a short drive away. We loved it and so did our friends. We'll be back next summer!

Great "Wish it could have been longer" geataway



My wife and I were just looking for a nice quiet place to get away for the Easter weekend. Cedar Cove is a wonderful place!, the cabin was clean and well stocked, and even though the Direct TV wasn't enabled there is such a wide selection of VHS tapes that when we settled in at night there were plenty of movies to choose from. The lake and mountains are beautiful, I caught a 2 pound largemouth on my 5th cast from the dock - next time we'll have to bring the canoe or boat - there are so many places on the lake to explore! We will definitely be back again for more of what Smith Mountain Lake has so much to give!
Alicia was very helpful and accommodating and we've already recommended the cabin to friends and family.

We enjoyed one of our best vacations ever during our stay at The Cabin. We couldn't get over how quiet and peaceful Cedar Key was. We enjoyed coffee and breakfast every morning out on the deck with it's breathtaking view and also afternoon cocktail hours after a day out on the lake. The cabin is very cute inside. One thing to note, be sure to bring some our your own cooking supplies if you plan on doing any cooking other than grilling because the kitchen is not very well equipped. The cabin is perfect for a couple or a small family.

We had a wonderful family vacation at the cabin. The lake water is clear and clean and the children were happy to spend most of their time swimming from the deck or inner tubing. the fishing was fantastic and on Jul 4 there was a fireworks display over the lake. We liked the fact that Smith Mountain and Cedar Key Village is not touristy or crowded.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Cabin for a weekend and it was a great break from the hustle and bustle of life in the DC Metro area. Even though the weather didn't cooperate as much as we would have liked, the views from the cabin were excellent and the amenities in the cabin really made the weekend great.
