For the fishing lovers out there, this property was made for you. Stand on the bank of the Smith River, sit on the deck or wade the water while dropping your line. The Smith River is known for its native brown trout fishery. Fly fishermen enjoy casting to these trout year-round in the tailwaters of Philpott Lake, which keeps the water cool and the fish active. The property is also adjacent to the section of water that the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries stocks with rainbow trout as part of their put-and-take-program.


The cabin sleeps four and includes a fridge, stove, satellite television, air conditioning, one bathroom and firewood for the outdoor fire pit.


At Rick’s Place on the Smith, a stay is the only vacation plan you need! Enjoy outdoors, tranquility, fun and relaxation while tucked away in this perfect cabin rental.
