CABIN 1 AT SILVER BAY VIEW COTTAGES ON SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE

Huddleston Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4, 2 bedrooms, private dock, Romantic Retreat

Cabins 1 and 2 are in a row of ten that rim the shore of a secluded cove on Smith Mountain Lake. The Cabin 1 is on the end, making it one of the most private of all. There are wilderness views of undeveloped forest and the lake, as well as Smith Mountain. The cabin is located on Witcher Creek, which is a no wake area. This feature makes swimming very safe, and a sense of peacefulness prevails that you will not find in other areas of the lake that experience more boat traffic. A private deep-water dock is shared by the two cabins, offering easy access for boating, swimming and sunbathing. Both cabins are two-bedroom, one-bath lakefront homes, with solid cedar construction, open-beam ceilings and hardwood floors. Silver Bay View Cottages are ideal for reunions. We can accommodate up to 24 people between four properties that include the Main House, the Cedar Cabin and Cabins 1 and 2. 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 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.

Why Jim Erler chose Huddleston

Cabin 1 was the first of the Silver Bay View properties and was the inspiration for our name. While smaller than the Point View properties, it remains a very special place for a cozy escape.

What makes this cabin unique

Cabin 1 is at the Bay View location and offers a private setting overlooking the Silver Bay portion of Smith Mountain Lake with Smith Mountain above it.

Quiet, relaxing, and gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a week relaxing at the cabin. It was a great experience, and we'll likely be back.

The cabin is exactly as described here, and the pictures don't lie. The view is incredible. All you see is water, woods, and mountains.

The owner was quick to respond to questions before we rented, stopped by to make sure everything was OK while we were there, and was receptive to feedback after our stay.

beautiful and relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5
The Cabin was just as we saw online; charming and clean, with amazing views of a large, no-wake cove. It was so quiet -- the perfect getaway for our family of 4. We met the owner, Jim, who was very friendly and helpful. Thank you! We would love to come back again some time!

Cozy cabin with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful Thanksgiving weekend experience for my family. Cabin was clean, nicely furnished, and had everything we needed. Loved the views of the lake from the deck. Kids and dog had a great time exploring around the lake. Owner was extremely courteous and responsive. Highly recommend this property.

Just What We Needed

  • 5 of 5
As owner/operators of a long haul truck, our dog and I usually load up and take a working vacation each summer with my husband. This summer we opted to do something different, especially since we now have 2 dogs. This little cabin on the lake was the perfect get away and we were so blessed to be able to bring our two labs along. The listing description was accurate, the property was clean and well-maintained and the owner was very pleasant to talk to and very helpful. We spent a few days just relaxing around the cabin and swimming with the dogs each day. The gated deck was wonderful for the dogs to be able to be outside if they wanted. One day we took a ride to the Smith Mountain Lake Dam Visitor Center where we learned about the lake and the dam. Another day we rented a pontoon boat from Parkway Marina and spent the day checking out the surrounding area from the lake. We had an awesome vacation, plan on returning and would highly recommend the property. The only down/con of this property would be all the steps to get down to the dock.

This was our second year in cabin 1. There were many upgrades, furniture, bedding, tv, internet... A very pleasant cozy cabin for our family for a very reasonable price. The best part of all is that our dog Annie was welcome. We all enjoyed the cool, clean water and exploring the nature preserve from our kayaks.
