Overview

Huddleston House Rental Photos and Description

2 BR, 2 1/2 Bath, sleeps 4, Dogs Allowed (fee, $50/dog)

***Sunday-to Sunday weekly rental in Summer Season.*** It’s a four-way tie! The best places to view the incredible sunrise over Smith Mountain Lake are from the Master Bedroom, porch swing, hot tub and the sundeck (top level of the private boat dock) at Log Haven. You will have to come see for yourself and cast your vote. Slipping out of the cozy cabin in the early morning mist to catch a prize bass or simply enjoying the peace and quiet are favorite pastimes of the guests who visit Log Haven. A special treat is being able to tie up your boat or a rental at our dock for the duration of your stay. Upon returning from your fishing jaunt, whip up your breakfast in the well-equipped kitchen and enjoy it and your coffee on the wrap around porch. Perhaps your late-rising family members or guests will join you in the hot tub. Make sure you take the dog(s) down to the lake to play fetch and swim right off the dock. This activity never gets old for the people-types, too! If you are so inclined, launch the kayak and meander around the many scenic coves and delightful local attractions found on SML. After a leisurely stroll up and down the lane or perhaps a more strenuous hike at Smith Mountain Lake State Park, fire up the grill and cook up your family’s favorite outdoor fare. Another soak in the hot tub might be in order to relax and take in the evening colors as they fade across the lake. If you are visiting in the cooler months, stoke up the fireplaces and shoot a game or two of pool or lounge in the first floor living room area. After getting away from it all, we know you will be rested, refreshed and rejuvenated to tackle all that life has for you back in the “real world”.

Over and over again our guests and family exclaim over the view from the master bedroom. There is a strong consensus that 'our view' of the lake is the best there is. Come enjoy it from the king sized master bed. Our loft bedroom can be configured as one king size bed or two extra long twin beds. Having a second private bath for this room is a treat.

We loved decorating our cabin and especially the kitchen. The red cabinetry just brings out the rustic feel and effect. We have equipped the kitchen with all you might need to make your early morning coffee to a casual lunch on the deck and even a formal full-course dinner complete with wine and baked alaska, just bring food! In addition, our large propane grill is located on the lakefront patio for all your outdoor grilling needs.

In the cooler months, we have a hard time deciding whether to lounge by the stone fireplace on the lower level playing pool or on the main floor by it's luxurious fireplace playing cards, watching a movie or just reading a book. We provide loads of firewood so you can enjoy both.

Over the years, quite a number of couples have chosen Log Haven as their honeymoon and anniversary destinations. We are happy to report that each of their experiences measured up to their hearts’ desires for these trips. We are blessed to have participated in a small way in these special times.

Whatever the season and the reason for your stay, we know you will want to come back to Log Haven and make it your home for a weekend or a week :)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! Great place. Loved the covered porch, sunrises, the dock, and the kayak was fun. Our golden retriever loved jumping from the deck. The stairs were perfect. Great way to celebrate Dan's 44th and Alexis' 12th birthdays. Would love to come back again!

Slice of heaven on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful rustic cabin with all of the comforts of home. Our first visit to the Smith Mountain Lake area. Absolutely beautiful in every way! We picked a weekend of winter weather and found the large fireplace with ample wood wonderful! So peaceful enjoying the view and a glass of wine by the fire. The home was well stocked with needed items although I would recommend packing an extra blanket during the cold months. Can't wait to come back in the warmer months to try out our fishing skills, enjoy some sun from the upper deck, and swing in the porch swing with a good book. A true getaway! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

Amazing Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Two fireplaces, Jacuzzi, pool table, kayak, grills, TVs, wireless, and the views were fantastic! We couldn't have asked for more. The cabin was quaint and rustic, but you still had all the amenities. The decks and outside furniture were so comfortable -- whether greeting the morning with a cup of coffee, or relaxing in the evening with a glass of wine.

Big water views from a delighful cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our memories of this trip are so rich with the beautiful images of this mountaintop retreat. When we arrived the temps were still warm enough for kayaking and a dip in the lake. Our family of 3 and our dog thoroughly enjoyed SML Park nearby where we hiked a trail with lake views and vistas. We visited two marinas and enjoyed the shopping at Bridgewater Plaza. I also did a lot of "Sunday driving" taking in the glorious landscapes of rolling green hills dotted with golden bales of hay. The leaves were just beginning to turn red and yellow and the air was clean and crisp. We watched the beautiful sailboats on the weekend from the porch swing and quietly observed the fishermen each morning. My daughter learned to play pool on the pool table downstairs and we enjoyed Phase 10 and other games. I cooked each night in that sweet little red kitchen. And we enjoyed lots of coffee on the porch. Having the internet was a big plus for us and we also enjoyed the streaming Netflix on TV. Our last morning we soaked up a priceless pink and orange sunrise. What a beautiful trip! We will be back to Smith Mountain Lake!

Loved it

  • 4 of 5

The house was really nice and the views unforgettable! We had a relaxing vacation. Beds were comfy.....could use a little more living room seating but it was really awesome..would definitely come back. We will be careful next time with seasonal rates, we paid full price but there were several things closed that we would liked to have done. We thought since the cottage reduction price was not yet in effect that it meant things were in full swing. That was not the case. The house was very nice and we really enjoyed a relaxing weekend! Will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! We will be happy to have you back for a return visit. Just to clarify - you did enjoy our reduced rates for the fall season. I do apologize that some of the other activities you might have liked to do where unavailable. See you soon!

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our 2 grown daughters spent a perfect week at Log Haven. The setting is beautiful, with views of the lake and sunrises from the wrap around porch. The cabin was charming - rustic but very well outfitted. We rented a pontoon boat that we could dock right on the property, and swimming in the extremely clean lake was relaxing and fun. We can't wait to get back next summer.
