Lakeside Retreat


"Lakeside Waterfront Retreat!"
 This classic brick chalet is a perfect addition to our group of vacation rentals and we know that you will enjoy it as much as we do!
 Recently renovated, Lakeside Retreat is beautiful inside and out. As you walk in the door, the first thing you will notice is the bold colors on freshly painted walls expertly paired with modern prints in the curtains and decor. There are detailed and well thought out accents throughout the home. The kitchen has been completely updated and includes luxe granite countertops and brand new, smudge-proof appliances. Next to the kitchen is the dining room, which is perfect for an intimate dinner for 2 or a Sunday family cookout. This opens into the living room, with comfy-cozy couches and chairs that you can melt into after a day spent on the lake.  Two french-doors open onto a patio, where you will find a gas grill and picnic tables overlooking the lake.

There is one bedroom located on the first floor, with a plush queen bed and a closet. Outside of the bedroom are cleverly hidden closets containing a washer and dryer for easy access.  There is a fresh and modern full bathroom also located on the first floor. 

As you climb the stairs, you will see a set of adorable built-in bunk beds that your kids will love.
(There is a door that we recommend closing if you have children sleeping in these beds as a safety precaution.) There is also a 3/4 bathroom located upstairs. To your left is another room that your children will go wild over. For Pirates AND Mermaids, there is a combo bunk with a full-size bed on the bottom. (Top bunk 100 lb limit.)  Right across the hall is the queen bedroom with tv console with storage for guests and an electric fireplace. But the true gem of this room is its attached private balcony, where you can sit to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or stargazing at night.


This well-kept home reflects the welcoming spirit and commitment to hospitality that has driven our company from the beginning. It is located at the end of a road which is very quiet and family-oriented. It is nestled in the rural mountains of Southwestern Virginia, with your own private dock, where you can fish, canoe, kayak, dock your boat or just relax!  Views are of the mountains and Claytor Lake, which is our favorite place on Earth!

Lakeside is a perfect destination of its own or a jumping-off point for the many recreational activities the New River Valley offers. It is located 10 minutes from I - 81, and 2 New River Trail biking and hiking access points.

It is 45 minutes from Virginia Tech, 20 minutes from Radford University, 10 miles from White Barrel Winery, Iron Heart Winery and Spinning Jenny winery. This property is wonderful lodging, without the crowds, for VT and RU home sporting events or graduations. (Recommend you book one year in advance for graduations and as soon as sporting schedules are publicized.)


The lodge is 10 minutes from 2 public boat launches for Claytor Lake; 20 minutes from the state park. Pontoon and pleasure boat rentals may be arranged through a local provider, We even have them delivered right to your dock! Mountain 2 Island also has all of your kayak and paddleboard needs covered!

As the owners and managers, we do everything we can to make your stay restful and rejuvenating, just like the vacations we like to take. Therefore, we do not allow house parties, reunions or loud gatherings.


We live close by so we can be there quickly if the need should arise.
