CEDAR CABIN AT SILVER BAY VIEW COTTAGES ON SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE

Huddleston Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 6, 3 bedrooms, private dock, Ideal for Reunions

The Cedar Cabin 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 cabin is located on a point that marks the entry to Witcher Creek, one of the best fishing areas on the lake. Between the Cedar Cabin and the Main House, the Point offers a combined capacity of up to 16 people, making it the ideal location for family reunions. We can accommodate up to 24 people between four properties that include the Main House, the Cedar Cabin and Cabins 1 and 2 that are a 3 minute walk away. Be sure and check out these other properties as well.

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 can look across to undeveloped wilderness.

Hot Tub: The 7' 8' Hot Tub accommodates up to 6 people with views of the lake and mountains.

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 Erler purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Jim Erler chose Huddleston

The Erlers purchased Cabin 1 in 1993 and began offering it as a rental a few years later. As the rental business grew, they purchased Cabin 2 and soon learned that there was a desparate need for accomdations large enough for reunions. When the Main House and Cedar Cabin became available in 2002, they purchased them and began major rennovations to prepare them for large reunions. Since 2003 Silver Bay has been a first choice on Smith Mountain Lake for reunions.

What makes this cabin unique

The Cedar Cabin is at the Point View location and offers lovely vistas of Smith Mountain Lake. It is the largest of the open beam cedar cabins, capable of accommodating up to 6 overnight guests.

Charming Lake Cabin

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful lake vacation at Cedar Cabin! The cabin is cozy and well appointed with nice appliances and comfy furniture. The beds were comfortable and it is so quiet and dark at night! The deck is very large and lovely for outdoor meals or just watching the boats. The lake is very clean for swimming, and you can fish right off the dock for little panfish. The hill to the dock is quite steep so be ready for a leg workout! This was a great introduction for us to the charm of Smith Mountain Lake and we hope to return soon! Thank you Mr. and Mrs. E.!

A Threepeat!

  • 5 of 5
We love this place, in fact this is the third time we've rented here! Our dogs are in heaven, too. We especially like that we are close to the park, where there is hiking, biking, etc. My highlight is the Maple Walnut Fudge at Gifts Ahoy at Bridgewater Plaza - I allow myself 1 lb. each vacation, then begin my diet when I get home (lol) Always a lovely, relaxing visit.

Wonderful relaxing stay at the cedar cabin.

  • 5 of 5
The was made at the last minute, and the owner was extremely accomodating. The property was just as described, clean, and comfortable. We werte looking for a place on the lake to moor our boat while we stayed, and the Cedar Cabin was just the ticket. We were provided with information about dining on the lake, and enjoyed the hot tub. Everything was perfect, thank you so much. 5 STARS!

Great cabin rental!!

  • 5 of 5
My three college roommates and I decided to spend the weekend at Cedar Cabin for my friend's bachelor party. We wanted a quiet, relaxing weekend (not the type to go crazy). This cabin was everything we hoped for and more! Jim is a great guy to rent from. After speaking with him over the phone, email and in person, he made our weekend perfect. The hot tub was great, the cabin was clean, and the lake/weather was amazing.

One thing I would suggest is if you decide to rent at this cabin, make sure you are in shape! The walk from the cabin to the dock, although short, is very steep! Not an issue for us, but something to think about.

I would recommend this cabin/owner to everyone! I hope to stay there again soon!!
