MAIN HOUSE AT SILVER BAY VIEW COTTAGES ON SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE

Huddleston House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 10, 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, private dock. Ideal for Family Reunions

The Main House at Silver Bay View Cottages offers grand and spectacular views of the lake and Smith Mountain in a quiet, private setting populated with beautiful Loblolly pines and sweeping lawns.

A private deep-water dock offers easy access for boating, swimming and sunbathing. The house is located on a point that marks the entry to Witcher Creek, one of the best fishing areas on the lake. The Main House is a large, modern home that can comfortably accommodate 10 people.

Two large public rooms and a large deck are designed for entertaining, making it the ideal gathering place for up to 24 people staying in the Silver Bay View Cottages properties. See listings for Cedar Cabin and Cabins 1 and 2.

Swimming: There is nothing more enjoyable than to stretch out on the dock with a good book, and then dive into the clear, warm water for a refreshing swim. The lake is one of the cleanest in the East Coast, and as you swim or relax, you are looking across to undeveloped wilderness.

Boating: There may be no better lake in the Mid-Atlantic region for boating. The 20,000 acres of Smith Mountain Lake and its 40-mile length make it a perfect place for water skiing, speed boating, canoeing, kayaking or sailing. Power boats and wave runners can be rented at several locations on the lake, including: Bridgewater Plaza Marina (Boats can also be picked up at the State Park), Parrot Cove (Parrot Cove also rents Kayaks), Parkway Marina (formerly knows as Saunders Marina), Mitchell's Point Marina or Virgil Naff Sea Doo (wave runners only).

The closest boat launch and boat rental is Mitchell's Point Marina.

Fishing: Fishing opportunities at Silver Bay View Cottages are unbelievable. The properties are located on Witcher Creek where the stripers spawn every spring. The lake is regularly stocked with game fish, and contains striped bass, large and small mouth bass, muskies, northern pike, and an assortment of small game fish. Fishing guides are available to introduce you to the lake, including: Captain Bert's Fishin' Charters, Mike's Striper Guide Service, Rockfish Adventures.

Jim and Catriona Erler have been managing Silver Bay View Cottages since 1993. Helping visitors find the best way to enjoy the lake or helping them organize a great family reunion is what makes this business so enjoyable. When not helping visitors, Jim designs Arts & Crafts houses and Catriona is a garden photographer and author. She has written and provided photos for eight books and also writes for a local magazine on Smith Mountain Lake.

Jim Erler purchased this house in 2002

We grew up in Southern California, vacationing on a lake in the nearby mountains. When we moved east, we searched for a lake with the same feel, and found that the eastern end of Smith Mountain Lake, with the mountains a trees, was just the right spot.

We rented this house for a weekend for a get together with friends and their families. The house is well equipped, well maintained, providing wonderful views and lots of activities for every ones. Owner had been very gracious through out the rental and responded swiftly to any request we had. View from the deck, hot tub and yard is absolutely gorgeous. Location of the house is terrific; close to amenities and marinas. Boat traffic infront of the house is minimal so no noise at all. Fishing was good from the small dock. Early morning over looking the lake and fishing was unforgettable experience. There was only one problem... it ended so soon. I will definitely come back to Silver bay and rent the small cabin just for me and my wife... ;)

Owners are very cooperative, courteous and helpful. I called them to ask about fishing and they guided me with great details and their website provides great deal of information and covers minute details..

Over all, 100/10.

AMAZING and BEAUTIFUL Vacataion

  • Submitted: Jul 22, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
This was absolutely one of the best trips. I worked very closely with the owners, whom checked on us upon our arrival, brought supplies (I had forgotten to purchase some needed items), and was very kind.

In addition to the excellent service we received, the cottage was immaculate and the view was gorgeous. The house had everything we needed (including silverware, dishes, blankets, and cleaning supplies), game tables, a deck with grill, a hot tub, and stairs that led to a dock on the water.

We also decided to bring our Vizsla who loved it! There was plenty of room for her to run around and because of the locataion, there was no need to worry about cars; the cottage is at the end of a private cul-de-sac, so there were no unwanted visitors.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this cottage, or any owned by the same people. I will definitely be back!

Late April at SML

Our stay at Silver Bay on Smith Mountain Lake was fantastic. The place is a perfect combination of lakefront, house space, spectacular views, comfortable accommodations, convenience to marinas, quiet cove, and activities for the kids and dogs! The hot tub was the bonus! The kids had a fabulous time and the dogs slept for days when we got home! Nothing like a warm end-of-April weekend just right for the year's first swimming, fishing, grilling, boating, and quiet early mornings overlooking the lake! The only problem was I had to go back to work on Monday!
Owner's Response: As part of renovating all four of our properties, we added hot tubs to the Main House and Cedar Cabin. It is gratifying that our guests are enjoying them!
