Mountain Retreat Living homes offer a level of customization and finish that is above and beyond the normal.

The River House

We believe there’s value in relationships. It’s the very reason Mountain Retreat Living was created – to offer a home building experience that cultivates relationships.

The relationship between a home and the environment it’s built in is one to be considered throughout all phases of home building. At The Coves, we’ve already started the process for you. Mountain Retreat Living was built from a shared vision between Developer and Builder; a vision to offer homeowners an opportunity to experience the beauty of Smith Mountain Lake from a trail, their home, or at a community gathering, all in a carefully designed setting.

Our Mountain Retreat Living homes are individually designed and crafted for you. We know this home will be in your family for generations to come and we’re honored to begin building a relationship with you.

Unique Settings and Attention to Detail

Mountain Retreat Living homes are designed to complement the environment they’re built in. It’s a lakefront home with two levels of porches to enjoy the stunning water views. A mountain home with timber frame accents that’s tucked in the trees. A riverside home with stone patios for dining outdoors. It’s an exceptional home built on an extraordinary property.

The attention to detail isn’t something you’ll just see, it’s something you’ll feel. It’s custom trim detail that frames each room like a picture. It’s warm, reclaimed floors that bring the past back to life. It’s timber framing that mimics the forest around it. It’s oversize exterior living spaces because real life happens outdoors. It’s custom details that will make your home unforgettable.
