What a lovely home to vacation in with family! The inside was clean and comfortable with plenty of room—from the downstairs kitchen and living room to the bedrooms upstairs. There was so much room outside for the children (and parents and grandparents) to play—from badminton to catch. The fire pit area was a lot of fun—with plenty of split wood! The owners’ list of places to eat was so helpful, and we found a new favorite pizza restaurant and the best ever coffee/cafe! The house is perfectly located for those planning to do the Virginia Creeper. Everything from booking to arriving to leaving was easy. Already trying to figure out when we can go back!
From the owner: "Thank you, Caroline! So glad you enjoyed your time at Smiling Hill Farmhouse and thank you so much for the beautiful photos you shared! Look forward to having you stay with us again soon."
We enjoyed our visit. Great home. Great location. Great communication from owners. Thank you!
From the owner: "Thank you, Julie! So glad you had a good stay at Smiling Hill Farmhouse. Hope you’ll come stay again soon! "
In the words of our 8 year old…”super great place”. ☺️
We thoroughly enjoyed the Smiling Hill Farmhouse for our family Christmas. The house was gorgeous, had everything we needed, and the layout was perfect. Also, kudos for the extremely comfortable beds!
The front porch was perfect for viewing the mountain sunset and our son challenged us to several games of horse at the basketball goal. We were excited for the fire pit (what a lovely setup!) but it was too windy while we there. Next time!
The biggest hit of all was that Santa had no problem finding us! ☺️
Hi Andrea, the homeowner would like to share the following: "Thanks, Andrea! We're so glad Santa knew where y’all were for Christmas! I saw that he even wrote a note in the guestbook! Hope you all will come again!"
Absolutely loved the house and it was perfect for our family Christmas! Spacious, comfortable, cozy with abundant windows to allow for natural light. The views were amazing and we were fortunate to enjoy a spectacular sunset from the front porch on Christmas Eve. We enjoyed the outdoor amenities as well, including a few adventures through the “woods” in the backyard:)
Would love to visit again in the spring or summer and spend time by the outdoor fire pit!
From the owners: "Christa, so glad you were able to spend Christmas at Smiling Hill Farmhouse! Would love to have y'all come again!"
