SECLUDED LAKEFRONT, RELAXING, QUIET, SPACIOUS, INTERNET

Huddleston House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 living areas, max 10 adults

Mountain View Seclusion, located at 217 Deerwood Drive, Huddleston, VA, is a beautiful waterfront home with two full levels offering views of Smith Mountain and the quiet cove yet with wireless Internet on the dock. This secluded home offers 5 bedrooms & 3 baths. 6 adults maximum. Levels are connected by an external stairway to allow separation between two families vacationing together or allowing your teens a 'pad' of their own. Enough space and privacy for everyone with an upstairs level of 3 bedrooms and 1 full bath and a downstairs level of 2 bedrooms and two full baths. Both levels offer full kitchen amenities and living areas. Also a private dock with deep, clear water for swimming and fishing in this no-wake cove. Enjoy the most beautiful deep-green water on Smith Mountain Lake with an exceptional view of the mountain too! 2 covered screened porches and an open deck with 2 large tables for eating outside. A gentle 200' slope with a lighted terraced walkway makes for easy access to the dock. Quiet neighborhood great for bikes.

It's perfect for children and safe biking in quiet wooded neighborhood. Of course bring your pets because this spot will be special for them as well! The dock area is known for it's outstanding fishing.

Sleep at night in the queen beds; or curl up in one of the comfortable twin beds. The kids will love the bunk beds. Enjoy watching deer, birds, and other wildlife play while dining on the open deck or the screened porch.

Mountain View Seclusion offers all the comforts and luxury you would want and deserve after a hard day of fishing, swimming, or hiking. A grill, 2 covered screened porches, and open decking add to the enjoyment.

Smith Mountain Lake is enjoyable any season of the year. Watch the spring burst into bloom; relax into the summer with fishing and swimming; experience a blazing fall color spectacular with a wine festival in September; cuddle up around the fire throughout the winter and watch the deer play; relax at night by the gas fireplace upstairs with a book or board games.

For those that can not afford to be out of reach or want to work in an atmosphere of relaxation while the rest of the family plays, wireless cable Internet access is also available and can even be accessed from the dock if you have a wireless card for your laptop.

Amenities include (but are not limited to) a VCR/DVD, stereo, cable TV, cable Internet with wireless access, games, and books.

WHAT A FUN WEEKEND!!

  • 5 of 5
We came here from May 28- June 1 for a long weekend. We had a grand time. Upon arrival, the house was clean and ready for us to start our fun filled weekend. The kids loved that they had the basement to themselves. The owners were very pleasant in allowing us to bring our 2 dogs. The kitchen was fully stocked and we did not have any issues with any of the appliances. The floating dock was really cool and was a great hang out spot during the day. We did not have a problem with parking our boat in the driveway or docking it at the floating dock. It was a great weekend getaway for our family. We will definitely recommend this house to our friends and will be returning sometime in the near future!

WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR!!!

  • 5 of 5
I visited Jeff Hair’s lake house May 1st thru 5th 2014. I was a little skeptical as some of the reviews painted a not so pretty picture. I disregarded the Linen issue and counted that review as a 4 as any normal renter of houses realizes you bring your bedding and towels. I have rented houses all over the east coast and in none of those stays were bed sheets or towels provided. All the beds had new mattress covers and the bedding was fine. The beds were also very comfortable. There was a brand new grill and our steaks were perfect. The kitchen was well stocked and had plenty of room for multiple cooks in the kitchen. We enjoyed the deck and the dock. We will definitely be staying here again.

NO LINENS!

  • 2 of 5
The property held all ten members of our property very nicely with bed space for everyone. However, the website did not indicate that linens (bed sheets and towels) were NOT provided. Instead of kicking back and relaxing when we arrived, we had to scramble to find towels and sheets before stores and services closed down for the night. We ended up purchasing cheap towels, hand soap, and trash bags at a dollar general about 30 minutes away. When I asked the owners to reimburse us for linen services, they acted like the request was unheard of so we did without bedsheets. You could tell by the condition of the blankets and comforters that we were not the first ones to do this. Had we known linens were not provided up front we would have brought our own. The owners had a second opportunity to let us know linens were not provided when I emailed them about check-in procedures, but failed to let us know then as well. I gave this property 2 stars for the huge inconvenience regarding linens. If linens had been taken care of, I would have given it four stars for lots of room, great lake access, and plenty of kitchen supplies.

Owner's Response: Other than linens and towels, which are typically never provided by renters regardless of location, I'm pleased you had an enjoyable stay and no other issues.

HAD A GREAT TIME

  • 5 of 5
Everything went great, hope we left it as we found it and changed your opinion on college kids. Only negative thing was that the grill was super rusted over, other than that we had a blast

Owner's Response: Thanks for letting us know about the grill. We've since replaced the grill but have also kept the old one as a back up.

A GREAT LAKE FRONT PROPERTY.

  • 5 of 5
Our family has stayed at this house for a week in July for the past 8 years. The quiet cove and secluded feel of the property are perfect for us. We spend hours in the water swimming, kayaking, or just floating on rafts without worry about incoming boats. The floating dock is perfect for fishing or laying in the sun.

The house has plenty of space for everyone, including the dog. Having 2 kitchens is a plus, with adequate refrigerator space for the week. We spend most of our time at the house gathered in the kitchen/dining area, out on the deck in the shade of the provided umbrella, or in the screened in porch when it rains. The driveway is big enough to hold our 4-5 cars with room to spare.

The neighborhood is very quiet and the neighbors are exceptionally friendly. The area roads are great for evening walks or bicycle rides. The owner is accessible and helpful with any concerns.

This is a great vacation home for anyone who wants to enjoy time on the water or relax in a quiet atmosphere, while still being a short drive from stores, restaurants, and SML State Park.

PLEASE READ...A BIT SURPRISED!!!

  • 3 of 5
Although the listing description included many accommodations and amenities, the upstairs kitchen had more than enough amenities to cook everything you could think of, including those pesky little creatures called ants - about 100 a day! We had to use ziploc baggies for everything. The owner was notified by phone, but did not have the cleaning company address the issue during our stay. What a disappointment.

The property was not fully cleaned or maintained, and was not ready for rental occupancy upon our arrival. The grass was knee-high and remained that way during our entire 5 days. The upstairs gas grill was so nasty we had to call the owner. The grill had to be cleaned to remove a mouse, mouse nesting and 3 babies before it could be used. The grates and interior were so dirty with food debris, it took the cleaning company 3 hrs to clean. Moreover, the burner covers were so corroded, the cleaning company had to remove them, making the grill unsafe and unavailable for use (we tried aluminum foil one night, but that was a hugh disappointment, as well as a safety concern)! The listing also stated there was a game room, video library, games, toys, and raft available -- please bring your own as these items do not exist! The only items we could find were a few dvds and a monopoly game missing many pieces. There is only one radio available. We notified the owner about these items too. We did request a partial refund (a one night credit would have sufficed); however, they declined. This is not good business and is POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE.

BE AWARE if you rent this property from the owner versus the rental agent -- the owner will not let you pay your balance with credit card and will request an alternate form of payment for your balance (e.g. check or cash mailed directly to them). This is not acceptable and should not be allowed. I have learned from this mistake.

The floating dock is exceptionally nice, the location is great, the water level is acceptable, and the neighbors were extremely friendly!!! Please note there is no place to safely pull, park or leave your boat in the drive, so please don't bring one!

We will definitely stay at Smith Mountain Lake again, but not at this rental property!
