Sometimes the name of a place can tell you everything you need to know. A small village with the name of Washington Courthouse was named for the charming architecture of the courthouse in the center of town. A park named Eagle’s Roost got its moniker from the eagles that make their home there. What sort of wonders await in our stunning property titled Hickory Hill Cottage? You just know to expect quiet times and happy moments spent with those you love best! Hickory Hill Cottage is another of our lakefront properties, one that is designed to give you a vacation you will never forget! Our walkthrough of this sweet cottage will paint a picture that won’t be complete until it’s your family sitting on the oversized tweed sofa in front of the impressive stone fireplace!
What You May Not Expect in Our Smith Mountain Lake Cottage Rental
When you hear the term cottage, you may expect a bungalow filled with country charm and possibly low ceilings and dark rooms. Hickory Hill Cottage is not your typical cottage, however, offering a midcentury modern ambience combined with rustic cabin charm. The A Frame design allows for soaring ceilings and a wall of windows let’s the outside in while keeping the unwanted out. The cozy kitchen, however, does have the appearance of a country cottage, offering creamy cabinets, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The single window that looks out over the landscape of Smith Mountain Lake is perfectly placed above the sink. A dining area with a drum style lamp shining down on table is tucked under the slanting tongue and groove wood planked ceiling.
The aforementioned tweed sofa offers a comfortable complement to the living area across the room. Two slightly egg shaped chairs complete the midcentury modern feel, as the fireplace they are placed in front of add warmth and romance to the coolest of nights. A loft area with more seating and a telescope allows for children to have a separate area to congregate and the fluffy rug on the floor may be the spot where your teens lounge as they scroll through their favorite social network sites. Bedrooms with bunk beds for the children and queen-sized beds for everyone are the perfect place to retreat to at the end of every fun filled day. Quiet, serene, and designed for slumber, guests sleep so deep in these spaces they never remember their dreams!
The Fun Continues Outside
A wraparound deck containing a propane grill, multiple seating areas, and a hot tub ensures the fun doesn’t stop at the doors of the property. Leading down to the dock, you’ll also find a firepit with colorful Adirondack chairs placed around its perimeter; this spot just begs for ghost stories to be told and s’mores to be created and consumed. Kayaks are provided for guests use as well and a slide is placed at dock’s edge. This sweet Smith Mountain Lake cottage rental was built to be the perfect summer getaway!
