Cabin 2 is in a row of ten that rim the shore of a secluded cove on Smith Mountain Lake.The cabin is near 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 cabins are 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.

Beautiful view. Clean and bright. A bit a smaller than I anticipated.

  • 4 of 5

Our 7 and 4 yr old loved fishing from the pier. We rented a boat and had a great time; wished we'd also rented a kayak. Great weather to boot; a fun getaway.

Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

Hubby and I enjoyed this lovely cabin with views of the mountains and lake. It's pet friendly so we brought along our Samson who loved going for a swim near the boat dock! The cabin is semi private with other cabins in either side but no one was staying in either so we enjoyed our privacy. We loved eating at JJ's Shak and enjoyed the historic dam as well as nearby Poplar Forest. We hope to return again to enjoy some fishing and weather as this was just a get away for us to relax and spend time together outside the busyness of life/work, etc. Thanks to Jim for stopping by to say hi and show us his other properties!

Amazing as always!

My recent trip marked my fifth visit to Cabin 2, and the visit was amazing as always. We loved cooking our own food and enjoyed the coziness of the cabin & the view that can only fully be appreciated in person. Thanks for another amazing stay!

Quaint and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights with our daughter over Spring Break and had a wonderful time. The outdoor setting was perfect and the view from the back deck was amazing. We especially loved that our view across the water was simply the beauty of trees and that we weren't looking at other cabins or houses. Neighboring cabin guests were very friendly. This cabin met our needs by being charming and in a private setting. We would stay here again!

Wonderful Weekend on Silver Bay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the weekend on Silver Bay while visiting our daughters at Liberty. The pictures don't to it justice. Very clean, comfortable and well appointed. The weather was wonderful which didn't hurt. We had coffee on the deck and bathed in the sun Saturday morning. No complaints... we only wish we could have stayed longer.

Highly recommend to anyone.
