BEAUTIFUL, QUIET LAKEFRONT PROPERTY - SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE ~VA~

Huddleston House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to Lake Retreat, it is more than just a vacation home. Lake Retreat is a peaceful, quiet escape from the hectic pace so many of us live.

This 4 bedroom, 2 full and 1 half baths home offers 2,000 sq ft of living space. Located on a waterfront lot with 1.25 acres full of blooming shrubbery and large oak trees, nature and wildlife are at your doorstep. A short walk from the back deck down a mild slope to the water reveals a natural brown sand beach and two private docks for your use nestled back in a cove. There is a sandbox near the natural sand beach for little children. You and your children can enjoy swimming in the cove and feel perfectly safe from boat traffic and waves. The old and the new docks provide ample docking space for your boats. The new dock has electricity. There is plenty of parking for cars and boat trailers on the lot.

Our family vacation

We had a wonderful vacation. The grand kids loved the lake and it was perfect for young children. We had a fantastic week everyone had a great time. The only complaint we had was the sofa beds in the basement. They were not comfortable. But everything else was great. The other bedrooms were very nice. We would certainly stay here again.

Owner's Response: We plan to replace the sofa bed with another bed at the end of this rental season.

very enjoyable stay

We had a very relaxing time at the house. Such a quiet,peaceful setting in a wooded area with deer around. Very nice dock. It was fun playing some air hockey and ping pong. The house was clean and as described. The weather was great during our stay but our time was too short there. The Virginia Dare was a nice boat ride for my parents.

My family and I were able to come and stay for the first time at Smith Mountain Lake. We loved the house, very nice and well equipped. Great having the boat dock as we rented a pontoon and had a blast. The owners were very friendly and helpful in guiding us where to get a boat and with info. My husband got lost trying to get back with the boat and called and the owner lead him right to the house.
We really enojed your home and was very comfortable. Having the grill was also great. The basement was great, as we loved having the ping pong table. Was nice having the washer and dryer down there whre we didn't have to listen to it. Also this home was pet friendly you could not tell there had ever been any there, which was very nice! Our children had a blast and our 4 year old can't wait to come back.
Thank you for sharing your home with us and we are looking forward to seeing you in 2012!
