Layout options include an entry foyer, two bedrooms, two full baths, large open kitchen, formal dining area, great room with fireplace, patio with privacy fencing, laundry room, and single or double garage with an electric garage door and pull-down attic storage.
Why consider owning a cottage? Other independent living communities offer a continuing care model, which includes a high entrance fee, no leasing option, monthly service fees, and no path to ownership. At Runk & Pratt, you own your cottage and only pay for care if and when you need it. Consider the following benefits of purchasing a cottage at Smith Mountain Lake: • No Entrance Fee • You own your cottage Just like if you own your current home, your cottage always stays in your estate and the asset continues to build equity. • No service fees At Runk & Pratt, we won’t charge you any healthcare service fees until you need them. You live in your cottage and remain completely independent as long as possible. Fees will apply at the current service costs when care is needed. • Option to lease You have the option to purchase and lease your cottage until you need it yourself, which potentially means a return on your investment. Leasing must be approved by Runk & Pratt.
