Piccolo Nido A Lago - Lakefront home with deepwater dock, hot tub & pool table

A trip to Smith Mountain Lake is all about the waterfront view. If you’re looking for a home away from home that makes the most of the water vantage point and space, you’ll love your stay at Piccolo Nido a Lago. This three-bedroom, two-bathroom rental residence sits within the Blue Ridge Mountain region of central Virginia and provides a comprehensive floor plan. Those traveling with canine companions will find the pet-friendly accommodations an added bonus to their Smith Mountain Lake experience.

An extended driveway is lined with a waterfront fence on one side and a brick paved patio complete with a furniture set and grill on the other. Lower level stairs extend from the ground to the upper-level wraparound porch, making it easy to call everyone together for an open-air meal during a stay. Those who enjoy starting the day early on the water will appreciate the convenient walkway that leads to the private dock on this residence as well.

Indoors, guests find a comfortable and tastefully decorated home waiting for them. The living room hosts a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace accentuated by vaulted ceilings and a large TV. The open concept floor plan makes for simple transitions between spaces. The dining room sits directly behind the living room and opens up to the kitchen. Here, traveling chefs can enjoy time spent cooking in a space that offers up stainless steel appliances and an extended island, which makes for convenient additional seating options.

Piccolo Nido a Lago comes with a pool table for those up for some friendly competition and a private hot tub on the deck for those that love to end each and every night immersed in bubbles under the stars. The many fine features and extras that this home provides make it as comfortable and fun indoors as the options for outdoor entertainment. Whether you enjoy swimming or fishing from the dock or grilling on the patio, the options are endless and easy to customize during a stay.

This home is beautiful and well situated on the lake. The evening provides beautiful sunsets, and the decks and dock are lovely to take in the day and evening. The cove was very quiet and private for our stay during the week days. Overall, it is such a charming home. We especially loved the fenced in yard for our 18 week old puppy. We also rent a vacation home down in Frisco, NC and would suggest a few minor improvements. We enjoy a glass or two of wine in the evening, and think there could be a better selection of wine glasses. They are all very small. The bed linens seemed to be quite used as the elastic was very weak and didn’t stay on the mattress well. Overall, we truly enjoyed our stay, and would definitely return again!

We loved our stay at Piccolo! It was perfect for the two of us and our small dogs. The house was right on the water with great big windows for viewing the lake. The kitchen/living room area was very open. The fenced in yard was a plus and a nice neighborhood for walking dogs.We will book this house again! A few suggestions for the house- A clock in the kitchen area would be nice. Another towel rack in the bathroom on main floor. A bath mat in bathtub.

We had a great time at Piccolo Nido A Lago! The house was just as advertised in the listing - neat & tidy, hot tub and dock with great views and bonus was it being located close to two local wineries! We will definitely return for another visit in the future. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The perfect getaway spot! The views were stellar and the amenities met all of our expectations. From coffee on the front porch in the morning to a relaxing sunset enjoyed from the hot tub, our group agreed, this was exactly what we needed! Would highly recommend and hope to come back soon!

The house and accomodations were wonderful! The only recommendation for future improvement would perhaps a dual HVAC system as the temperature variation between the upper and lower floors is significant...especially challenging for sleeping.

Phillip B. Feb 2020
We had a lovely time at Piccolo Nido A Lago. The location and house were made for a nice quiet time. The fenced in yard for our dogs was awesome. The staff at Premier Vacation Rentals took care of everything. They checked in on us to make sure everything was perfect. Couldn’t ask for more.

We love vacationing at SML. This house, by far, has been our favorite! It’s well equipped, clean and that dock! What a view! We spent all day and evening on the dock. We loved every minute of our stay and we will definitely rent this home again. Thank you! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We enjoyed our visit to Piccolo Nido A Lago. The deck and the view are excellent! Hot tub is the best! Great home and I hope to return here some day soon. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Great place. Very clean upon arrival. Small, but adequate for our family. We chose not to bring the dog, but next time we will. Fenced in yard area seemed great. Dock was awesome! Only downsides were regulating temperature---house was either freezing or hot and notes placed around to avoid changing the thermostat. Trash is also an issue. No place to store it until we could drive away with it. A sealed or topped container would have been nice. Internet service--alert renters sooner that it is limited....the ad did not note this and I had to work many days and had to drive to a coffee shop. The ad for the house said it was fully wired, but it should not limited scope with extra fees of usage exceeded. We did see ads in the area for competing internet services to houses so owners may want to consider either amending the home marketing to be clear on this for folks who may have to work during their stay, or find a provider that offers more included services for web usage.

My family has stayed at many vacation homes over the years, and this one has to be one of the best. To be able to let the dog out in the mornings and not have to put him on a leash and go out for a walk immediately was soooo nice. The house was super clean and had plenty of room for us all. The porch swing was a favorite and the dock furniture was so pretty. Between swimming and boating, we had a great time. Vinny`s was an awesome choice for dinner, and the trip to Appomattox was a memorable experience. We used Parrot Cove for the boat rental and they were very helpful. I hope to return to SML and would love to stay at Piccolo Nido A Lago again. 5 Stars! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had a great time and truly enjoyed our stay at Piccolo Nido A Lago. Your representative, Sandy, is a treasure. She was very informative and nice. We will contact you directly this summer when we determine what our summer plans will be. Thank you.

We very much enjoyed the house. Just a few things we thought we would like to mention. We had 5 people for several days and with only 4 table chairs in the house, it was difficult. One more chair somewhere to pull out would have been nice. Also a few more hooks on door backs would be nice for towels and clothes (robes, night clothes, etc.). All in all though, we enjoyed the house and our time there. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We very much enjoyed our stay. The house was a perfect size for our family and the view was amazing. We loved sitting on the covered porch for meals and while watching the sunset. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked with cookware and the open floor plan allowed everyone to be together during meal preparation. Our two dogs enjoyed the fenced in yard and the house even included some `baby gates` for the porch area which was perfect for confining the dogs on the porch! The walk to the dock was short which was good because we spent everyday out on our boat. We had a wonderful vacation and wish we could own this home rather than visit!!!!!

We were looking for a beautiful retreat to rest from our 9 grandchildren! We found it at `Picolla` What a lovely cottage with amazing views and furnished in an Italian theme. Our dog was thrilled to be on vacation with us. The fenced yard made it easy to let her in and out. We were so rested when we left. Thank you This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The house was perfect for our vacation. Any issues we that arose were taken care of immediately. It was nice for the kids to have a space of their own downstairs so we were able to have adult time upstairs. We were able to dock our boat without issue and we swam and fished off the dock. The hot tub was a hit as well. We hope to stay again on our next visit to Smith Mountain Lake! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Joe . Jul 2012
We had a great week with our 3 girls and 2 dogs. Pros: Really cute house in cove of lake. Very easily access to main channel of Lake. Dock was great for swimming off of, docking our pontoon boat, watching sunsets. Nice TV, nice pool table, good washer/dryer, hot tub looked new (only used it once). Very close access to Route 122, so you`re close to restaurants and other activities. Nicely furnished. Beds were comfortable. Gas Grill was clean and worked well. Would recommend this rental to small family with dogs! Vineyard up the street has live music on Saturday night! Use SML Premier Boats for boat rental...they dropped off the boat at our dock and picked it up as well! Carpet looked new...don`t usually expect that in vacation rentals. Cons: Power went out due to lightning and couldn`t get wifi to work again...not owners fault. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We truly enjoyed our `escape` to Piccolo Nido a Lago. It was located on a beautiful section of the lake and enabled us to easily access various interesting places - like the Hickory Hill Vineyards, Jake`s Restaurant, SML State Park, and the Halesford Bridge. The home was very comfortable and had all the amenities we wanted and more. We hope to visit again in the future. Thank you!

John & marion . May 2012
Enjoyed our stay at SML again this year. The house was great and the boat discount from Premier Boat Rentals was a nice add-on. Had good weather most of the week and only one day with any substantial rain in the afternoon/evening. Fishing was a challenge and did not produce many catches but it was fun trying anyway. Thanks for letting us borrow the house for the week! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Karen . Dec 2011
Great place to stay. Last minute getaway that had everything we were looking for. Clean, great location, convenient to grocery and state park, hot tub was perfect after long day. TV and pool table great for entertainment. Hope to come back in warmer months to take advantage of lake. Would have loved to bring my dog; maybe next time! Off-season rate was appropriate and reasonable. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Ray . Oct 2011
Just want to let you know how nice the home was. Each year we try a new place. Most places are very nice. But will find some time in the spring to return. Very clean quite and comfortable. We rented a pontoon boat recommended by Primer Vacation rentals. Nice new boat and a family run business. Can not say enough. The lake is beautiful. If you like a nice quite place you have to visit. All the people that live in the area were very helpful in telling us places to go and eat. Made us fell very wanted. Can not say enough. Looking forward to going back.

This was just a wonderful place for us to stay to celebrate our friends 40th birthday. We enjoyed the use of the dock for our boat, and watching the sunset from the hot tub was perfect. We will definitely be back and hopefully stay longer next time. Premier Vacation Rentals was very helpful, thank you!
