ENCHANTING, ELEGANT, TRANQUIL HOME AT SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE

Huddleston House Rental Photos and Description

3BR,2FB Lakefront Vacation Rental Huddleston, Virginia,sleeps 6, Smith Mountain

Welcome to Cedar Key Village at Smith Mountain Lake. This spectacular all Cedar Home is located on beautiful Smith Mountain Lake and is one of eleven homes nestled in a secluded no wake cove. We sit above the others cabins offering a spectacular view of the lake and mountains. We also own the cabin below us. Please see 212766. This home sleeps four. Our resort offers the perfect setting for family or friend reunions. Please review the plat under the map page on this site.

We have one of the easiest access to the lake for those who have walking issues as you can drive directly to the waterfront, just a 30 second drive. Also you can walk the road or take the 100 steps down to the waterfront. The walk down the steps to the waterfront is surrounded by beautiful gardens on both sides, please see the pictures.

Because the cove is “no wake” you can swim, kayak and canoe without being disturbed by jet skies and motor boats, a rarity on the lake. We are only a 500' to the entrance to the main channel so you have go far before you can produce a wake. The cove is surrounded by a 2000 acre wildlife mountainous nature preserve so your views are of deep woods, silhouetted by Smith Mountain and its surrounding mountains. Smith Mountain Lake has 22,000 acres of clean water and has 500 miles of shoreline.

There is a mile long drive to reach our Lodge that is just magical. It is deeply wooded with an abundance of hardwoods on both sides, not a home in sight. Once you have made this turn on our lane, you will be delighted with the serine, natural beauty that surrounds our home.

Our recently renovated gorgeous home features a gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops and Tuscany styled charming maple cabinets, a large great room with cathedral ceilings and an incredibly beautiful floor to ceiling stone fireplace. Our one level home’s main living area is totally open so if you are in the kitchen, you are not isolated from the other guests. Cedar beams throughout the house adds a unique charm to this beautifully decorated and inviting home. All the furniture is extremely comfortable and cozy. We added an additional sun room featuring a panoramic wall of glass sun room provides breathtaking views of the lake and mountains from anywhere in the living area.

We offer three bedrooms and two full baths. The master bath has an over-sized custom tiled shower with three shower heads. The other bath offers a Jacuzzi tub. The cabinets are all rich maple with granite counter tops. The guest bedroom has a sliding glass door to the deck, which offers a fantastic view of the lake and Smith Mountain… what a way to wake up each morning.

Amenities include a 45 inch HD Sony TV, surround sound speakers and outdoor speakers, great for entertainment on our over sized trek deck. We live in the house for several months of the year so the house is appointed with every pot and pan, dish and glass wear imaginable. Many of our guests has told us it is far better equipped than their own homes. We also provide an array of spices.

The deck has two tables, lots of chairs, a hammock, and is surrounded by a basket s of flowers. There is a mature oak tree next to the deck and it’s gracefully limbs provides wonderful shade from early spring thru the fall. The deck’s view of the lake and the mountains is simply breathtaking. There is a lower level patio as well that has another table and chairs for six and a charcoal barbeque. We have a boat slip with a private dock, perfect for lots of fun water entertainment. It is 20 ' deep off our dock.

Our no wake 60 acres cove is famous for its abundance and variety of fish. It is where the strippers spawn every year and fisherman catch bass, muskies and cat fish right off our docks. You will see an exciting array of wild life including eagles, owls, ospreys, humming birds, wild turkey and of course deer but we also have several albino deer which are spectacular to see if you are lucky.

Ideally located in southwest Virginia's mountain foothills, our Lodge setting balances the beauties of landscape, mountains and lake with tranquility and recreational pursuits for a perfect vacation. Each season offers delights for the senses. Spring brings beautiful mountain laurels, azaleas, and dogwoods. Summers are lush with the aroma of heavy woods and an array of flower blossoms. Crape myrtles surround our property in late summer bursting our gardens with a variety of color. Autumn paints the landscape in burning brush strokes of red, gold, and orange. Each season is unique. Each a part of the beauty that surrounds our Lodge

Quiet, serene, beautiful -- a fresh adventure in the leisure life awaits you. Pick your pleasure. Maybe it's a romantic winter weekend. Or a family designed dip into summer water sports. An autumn escape to see Smith Mountain on fire with ever changing colors. Or spring's first battle with the bass and muskies. No matter, you will find them all.

Special: 50% off Green Fees at a Robert Trent Jones designed golf course just ten minutes down the road. The Mariners Landing golf course is o in the same community as the Point Restaurant which is renown on the lake as one of the top lakefront restaurants. They also have lots of fun entertainment over the summer and fall months so make sure you look them up.

Rent all types of boats at nearby marinas and enjoy parasailing, water skiing, sailing, water-skiing, jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking and for those with a large crowd you will love the huge pontoon boats. Our no-wake cove is perfect for kayaking, canoeing, and swimming. No worries of being run over by the jet skis or speed boats.

Our mile long drive into the property is perfect for long walks or biking. You will listen to only the sounds of nature as a beautiful hardwood forest hugs both sides of the road. Dear and turkey abound! Also if you like mountain biking, you are only a few minutes away.

There are lots of funs restaurants close by and the state park is just ten minutes away. The park offers summer fun programs for children at their camp pavilion. They also have a mile long lake front walking trail, a sandy beach, boat rentals, covered pavilions with barbeque grills and lots of night life entertainment.

You can take a ride on the Virginia Dare to see the lake and enjoy dinning for lunch or dinner. Next to the Virginia Dare is the Tiki Bar, a true fun spot for Jimmy Buffet fans.

On the side of the lake (about twenty minutes away) there are lots of fun clothing shops, miniature golf, arcade, art shop, ice cream parlor, cinema and great restaurants.

The area is rich in history; you will want to make sure you see the Booker T. Washington plantation, the D day Memorial in Bedford and take a tour of how the damn was constructed. And Roanoke is only 40 minutes away and has all kinds of fun night life at market square. It is considered one of the best towns in the state for Bluegrass music. A drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway is a must; the mountains are soft and lovely, and serenely beautiful.We know you will love our home and our charming resort community.

Please see the plat of our community under the map section on this site and or Google earth our address which is 1012 Cedar Key Lane, Huddleston, Va. Our home sits on a hill above the cabins, offering a spectacular view of the lake and Smith Mountain.

Please review our pictures of our home and you will see that you do not see the cabins unless you are

standing next to the windows from all the rooms in the house. We strategically placed the windows to assure all you see is the lake and mountains. Please visit smithmtnlakerentals.com for more detailed information about our home and cabin.

Greg and I love our house and location. We live there 3 months of the year since we have retired. We love to swim, boat, golf, fish and spend our days reading on the dock or deck... life is good!

Alicia Yowell purchased this house in 1983

We purchased our home in 1983 and have just loved vacationing with our children over the years at our home. It is one of most magical spots on the lake. The views are just breathtaking. We think we have the most beautiful view on the lake

A magnificent time was had by all… what a great party house, speakers both in and out of the house, open floor plan with lots of sitting areas and the view… what a view, just beautiful. The deck is spectacular and the big old oak tree provides lots of shade. The bathrooms are awesome and loved the kitchen, great selection in cabinets and granite counter tops. If you don’t love this place, maybe you should only vacation at the Ritz.

We swam every day across the lake and back. Did lots of tubing once we were out of the cove, took the kids to some of the Islands where we and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. We even went peach picking at a farm outside of Bedford. Lots to do for the family. The house is perfect for a Romantic weekend as well. Comfortable furniture throughout, and most importantly, they have very comfortable beds. The house was spotless and the landscaping is very nice, especially gardens leading to the lake.

The Jewel of the Lake!

  • 5 of 5
What a delightful property. My husband and I stayed here along with some family members in late June. The setting is beautiful. A long, wooded driveway leads to the property making for a grand entrance. The home itself is beautifully maintained and well laid out. A large great room provides 2-3 different sitting areas. We had World Cup viewing in one area while other family members were able to lounge on large couches or sit in the recliners taking in the majestic views through the picture windows. Set in a former resort, yet, very private, we had access to a dock and some kayaks/canoes which we took advantage of. It was nice to be a quiet zone without fear of jetskis/speed boats interrupting our fun. The deck itself is an oasis of serenity and we all took turns on the hammock or just quietly reading/having coffee in the mornings. The owners were wonderful to work with, going the extra mile to recommend the optimal places to eat or rent a pontoon boat. They provide everything you might need.by way of dishes, appliances etc and great bathrooms! We had the master bedroom but everyone petitioned us to enjoy the large master bathroom and great shower. If you are seeking a relaxing escape from reality in a beautiful part of Virginia, then this is the place for you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review and your phone call informing me how much you loved our home and the community. It is truly a magical spot and so quiet compared to the other areas on the lake which is the reason we decided to do the massive renovation of our home several years ago. I look forward to assisting you with your next visit, providing our renters with a perfect vacation is our top priority.

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely time. The house has wonderful views of a beautiful part of the lake, a lovely porch w a hammock, comfortable furniture that is nicely arranged, a well stocked kitchen, and is in a wooded neighborhood great for long walks. We rented boats from the owner and canoed and kayaked off the private dock. We and the dog loved it!!

Lovely Memorial Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have enjoyed this more. Fantastic view of a quiet part of the lake, private docks where we tied up the boats the owner rented to us, and all of that in a wooded neighborhood perfect for long walks, and a beautifully and comfortably furnished house with a very well-stocked kitchen -- we and the dog loved it!

A Perfect Getaway Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We have been coming to Smith Mountain Lake over the past ten years. No home has this type of view on the lake. The house sits on a hill that overlooks the lake, then deep woods across the cove and then Smith Mountain and its mountain range….so peaceful and so beautiful!

The house is well equipped with everything you could possibly need for cooking. We have never rented a home in which the owner has supplied everything you need from sugar, spices and all the large platers and dishes necessary for great entertaining.

It is a perfect house for large gatherings, with so many different comfortable sitting areas. My favorite however is the two rocking recliners by the window…what a view! The house is really unbelievably furnished for a rental, with oriental carpets and expensive but comfortable furniture throughout. We loved the master bathroom… it is amazing!

Since we know the lake so well, I can assure you there is no place anywhere that offers the peaceful swimming and kayaking that this no wake cove provides. Jet ski boat traffic is so bad in some of the coves that it would simply be too dangerous to swim. The other thing that we love about Cedar Key Resort is that it offers the opportunity to rent some of the other cabins if we want more of our friends or extended family to vacation. It allows for everyone to have their own space but a great central gathering place.

Another plus is the drive into the resort. The mile hardwood wood lined road reminded both of us of the song “ Country Roads”, just perfect for our morning or evening walks.

Whenever we visit this beautiful lake, we will be staying at Cedar Key Lodge. The owners are committed to making sure your vacation is perfect, a dedication that is not always provided thru rental companies.

Thank you for a wonderful family vacation!
Andrew B and Family
