Overview

About the property

Sleeps 4, 2 bedrooms, private dock, Romantic Retreat

Cabins 1 and 2 are in a row of ten that rim the shore of a secluded cove on Smith Mountain Lake. The Cabin 1 is on the end, making it one of the most private of all. There are wilderness views of undeveloped forest and the lake, as well as Smith Mountain. The cabin is located on Witcher Creek, which is a no wake area. This feature makes swimming very safe, and a sense of peacefulness prevails that you will not find in other areas of the lake that experience more boat traffic. A private deep-water dock is shared by the two cabins, offering easy access for boating, swimming and sunbathing. Both cabins are two-bedroom, one-bath lakefront homes, with solid cedar construction, open-beam ceilings and hardwood floors. Silver Bay View Cottages are ideal for reunions. We can accommodate up to 24 people between four properties that include the Main House, the Cedar Cabin and Cabins 1 and 2. Be sure and check out these other properties as well.

Swimming: There is nothing more enjoyable than to stretch out on the dock with a good book, and then dive into the clear, warm water for a refreshing swim. The lake is one of the cleanest in the East Coast, and as you swim or relax, you are looking across to undeveloped wilderness.

Boating: There may be no better lake in the Mid-Atlantic region for boating. The 20,000 acres of Smith Mountain Lake and its 40-mile length make it a perfect place for water skiing, speed boating, canoeing, kayaking or sailing. Power boats and wave runners can be rented at several locations on the lake, including: Bridgewater Plaza Marina (Boats can also be picked up at the State Park), Parrot Cove (Parrot Cove also rents Kayaks), Parkway Marina (formerly knows as Saunders Marina), Mitchell's Point Marina or Virgil Naff Sea Doo (wave runners only). The closest boat launch and boat rental is Mitchell's Point Marina.

Fishing: Fishing opportunities at Silver Bay View Cottages are unbelievable. The properties are located on Witcher Creek where the stripers spawn every spring. The lake is regularly stocked with game fish, and contains striped bass, large and small mouth bass, muskies, northern pike, and an assortment of small game fish. Fishing guides are available to introduce you to the lake, including: Captain Bert's Fishin' Charters, Mike's Striper Guide Service, Rockfish Adventures.

Why Jim Erler, Manager LakeAway Vacation Rentals chose Smith Mountain Lake

Cabin 1 was the first of the Silver Bay View properties and was the inspiration for our name. While smaller than the Point View properties, it remains a very special place for a cozy escape.

What makes this cabin unique

Cabin 1 is at the Bay View location and offers a private setting overlooking the Silver Bay portion of Smith Mountain Lake with Smith Mountain above it.

Quiet Peaceful stay made it feel like a small country getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in cabin 1. Cozy Rustic 2 bedroom cabin on the lake. No fuss reservation, and the natural beauty of the area was refreshing. I would gladly stay there again.

Quiet, relaxing, beautiful lake.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautifully built and has everything you need for a quiet stay with easy access to a dock. From there take your boat across a clear water lake with great fishing and breathtaking views of sheer mountains surrounding you. Wonderful stay! We plan to come back again!

Fantastic place with a stellar view!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our stay at the cabin. Jim was exceptionally friendly and accommodating, and the cabin was everything we hoped it would be. In addition, there is a corner store with all the supplies you could need just up the road (10 minute drive) that is super convenient, instead of driving 30 minutes into town for groceries and spirits. We have no reservations about staying here again in the future. Also, the view is incredible!

Great cabin and location, but spartan

  • 4 of 5

This has got to be one of the best locations available on Smith Mtn Lake. Peaceful, wild, with good sunset light. Convenient dock.

The cabin is 15 minutes from convenience store, and longer to restaurants and grocery. I wish the owner would make a few small changes:

Supply paper towels and a couple of trash bags. Maybe even a box of tissues.

Install (or repair) light over the kitchen counter/sink area.

Install a couple of shelves in the bath for toiletries.

Note that grill uses charcoal not gas, so you need to bring your own MatchLite or other charcoal/lighter fluid.

When we stayed in Oct 2016 a fallen tree was blocking stairs down to dock.

Remember that nearest boat launch (Mitchell Point) has no room for parking car/trailer.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

How beautiful! We traveled all around the lake during our stay and did not find such peace and tranquility any other place. If you are looking for fun things to do, do not go, but if you want a visit with nature and beauty, this is the place.
