SECRET COVE

Huddleston House Rental Photos and Description

3BR Lakefront Vacation Rental Huddleston, Virginia USA

Relax, refresh, and rejuvenate at the beautiful Secret Cove. After a day of fun-filled water activities on the lake, come back and relax in an elegant rustic home situated on 1.3 acres. Relax in the hot tub, shoot a game of pool or curl up with a book. The charm of the house is enhanced by red cedar paneling throughout. Trees and privacy are abundant.

The master bedroom has a king-size bed with a private deck, steam shower and Jacuzzi® tub. This bedroom also has plenty of glass, which is perfect for enjoying the awesome sunrises.

Secret Cove features three decks, two docks, plenty of glass, a spacious open floor plan, and a comfortable way to get back to nature. Our deep water cove is in a no wake zone, which makes it perfect for fishing from the dock or taking a lazy ride in the Secret Cove Paddle Boat.

We are pet-friendly because we've found that our animal guests have been well-trained and well-behaved.

Secret Cove is a no stress zone.

You will enjoy the getaway, back-to-nature, lake feeling you're looking for in this comfortable environment. Walk through the door and let the stress just melts away.

Secret Cove-A Well-kept Secret

My husband, two dogs and I stayed for a week at this sprawling Smith Mountain Lake getaway. It is located on a quiet cove that leads out to all of the tributaries of the lake, giving you the best of both worlds. You felt secluded with the trees all around. Jet ski rentals are nearby as well as other boat rentals. There were paddle boats available on the property.
The property was clean and up to date. The furniture was comfortable and plentiful and the outdoor decks had plenty of seating and afforded a high up view of the lake. There was a fantastic game room with pool, footsball, and a real arcade machine programmed full of games. I would highly recommend this Smith Mountain Lake home and will definitely be returning for another visit.

Awesome Vacation- truly stress free

Me and my family spent a wonderful week at this rental and it was one of the best vacations I have ever had! The listing is accurate, all amenities as described. The property was clean and well maintained.
This home was spacious and very comfortable I loved the open floor plan. The game rooms were awesome there was something for everyone to do. We enjoyed fishing during the day and did catch many fish. (we did catch and release) The walk to the dock is a little steep but we had no problems. There was 1 paddle boat that worked during our stay. The bed in the master bedroom was comfortable. The outside decks were nice to sit on and relax when we came back from fishing. I can honestly say you will not get bored at this place as there is something for everyone. My daughter enjoyed the books and the movies available. We enjoyed the board games at night after we finished playing the game rooms, there were many to choose from. They thought of just about every thing at this rental.
There is a small store very close to the home that has a little bit of everything if you forgot something or need bait for fishing. The people in the area are very friendly and helpful. There is a grocery store Food Lion about 20 min away in Montea if you need to get groceries. Boat rentals are only a short distance away, To see the lake you will need a boat. The cove we were in is great and is a no wake zone, although we did have one jet ski to come by that did not follow this rule. It only happened once during our stay. We mostly felt we had the cove to ourselves.
This is an awesome place very relaxing and comfortable. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone. Truly a stress free zone and a great place to get away from it all. Awesome Vacation and area

An awesome vacation

Our visit to Secret Cove was in a word perfect. The house is unbelievably spacious, and clearly designed to accommodate families with children.

I was particularly impressed with the game room, complete with a foos ball table, an arcade video game with over a hundred games, a play station hook up, and a futon for those little ones that wear down. They even had a bathroom nearby.

The most impressive part is there is no place for the little ones to escape, except down the hall past the adults 100 feet away, enjoying the TV, pool table, outside bar, and hot tub. Somebody thought about that carefully.

The property itself is almost silent at night, and being at the end of a deep water cove, we didn’t see a single boat come our way. And the three decks give everybody a chance to enjoy the peace and quiet there. Even more impressive was the steam shower. Between the hot tub, the Jacuzzi tub, and the steam shower, it was like staying in a spa.

But I have to say the most impressive part was the person from whom we rented. We met some locals who told us what a great person Cassie Smith is. They didn’t have to tell us. We knew from dealing with her. She is kind, professional, and in every since a good person. We can’t thank her enough for letting us share her wonderful home.

If you couldn’t already tell, I highly recommend this property. We’ll be back there for sure, most likely in a few months.

Great Time for All

Our extended family rented Secret Cove for a week during the Thanksgiving Holiday season. We had people in the home from ages 6 to 76 and there was something there for everyone. No one was on top of another one! Best of all, the kids had the downstairs and the adults could join them – or not! The downstairs was perfect – with all the amenities that they advertised. Best of all, everything in the house was working! While this period was deemed “off season”, we still found plenty to do in the area – and how the area has grown in the past 35 years! We also found the owner to be extremely helpful and cooperative, so we will stay here again!

Home Away From Home...Without the Stress

It was a true pleasure to stay at Secret Cove. The home itself is fully equipped to handle the needs of a big family, and was very clean and clutter free. It is very modern but extermely cozy at the same time, which is a hard combination to find in a cabin. The game rooms were a fun way to spend the evenings with the kids, followed by a very relaxing soak in the jacuzzi once they went to bed. We were even treated to a very nice summer thunderstorm, and not once did my kids complain of boredom nor did they fight or argue with one another. There was so much for them to do that they actually enjoyed each others company even while being cooped up inside. The lake is absolutely beautiful and the water was very refreshing and clean. There is enough room at the boat dock to tie up your own boat or rental boat, which was very convenient. The little cove of the lake made for some great fishing and swimming without the worry of other boats passing through. It felt like we had that whole corner of the lake all to ourselves. The week went by entirely too fast, and we were sad when it was time to go home. We left Secret Cove with some wonderful memories, and will definately be back!
