CABIN 2 AT SILVER BAY VIEW COTTAGES ON SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE

Huddleston Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4, 2 bedrooms, private dock, Romantic Retreat

Cabin 2 is in a row of ten that rim the shore of a secluded cove on Smith Mountain Lake.The cabin is near 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 cabins are 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.

FANTASTIC VIEW

  • 5 of 5
You cannot get enough of the view. We had plans to do many other things while staying there but could not bring ourselves to leave the beautiful cabin premises. I personally enjoyed swimming in the lake a lot. Everything was perfect and as described, but the only thing I would say is that the house next to us had some construction going on in and outside of it. So we would be up bright and early, meaning 8 Am, due to various noises they were making. They only seemed to work few hours a day so it was not too bad.

HEAVENLY

  • 5 of 5
Love being in a no wake cove that is so deep and across from a wildlife preserve. This is our 3rd visit and we had such a good time kayaking and water skiing. The cabin is cozy and comfortable. Best of all our dog Annie is welcome too. This is our home away from home : )! We plan to come back next year

THE DESCRIPTION SAYS IT ALL!

  • 5 of 5
My best friend and I came to Cabin 2 at Smith Mountain Lake for a girls getaway weekend. We found a piece of heaven waiting for us! Out of all the numerous cabins on the lake, Cabin 2 has the best view by far--aside from one tree, a completely obstructed view of the lake and surroundings. The pictures online don't even do justice to the breathtaking view and beauty of the cabin. The owner provided excellent customer service from start to finish. Cabin 2 was immaculately maintained, and we found everything we needed. We enjoyed a sunrise on the dock, sunset on the deck, and everything in between. We loved it so much we didn't venture anywhere else until we departed for home! One thing we loved was the quietness and solitude, especially on the dock and deck. The only sound we heard was the birds! Before we left Cabin 2, we marked our calendar for our fall visit and made the reservation shortly after returning home--a testimony to how much we enjoyed our time there. I would highly recommend this cabin. It truly is a private paradise.

GREAT PROPERTY.

  • 4 of 5
Property managers were very helpful and friendly. The cabin is beautiful and the location is quiet. The only issue I had was that it wasn't quite as secluded as the pictures suggest. Regardless, it was private enough and there wasn't much disruption from neighbors.

IT WAS PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
My husband dreamed of a place where we could kayak, hike and fish. Cabin 2 made his wish come true! The location and cabin were exactly as described. It was very quiet and peaceful. The view from the large deck that ran across the entire back of the cabin was breathtaking. The cabin itself was very clean and well- maintained. We appreciated the high quality of the amenities --- furniture, kitchenware, dinnerware, glassware, t.v. The queen bed was comfortable as was our son's twin bed. I especially appreciated the modern, new bathroom sink!

The owner communicated with us promptly and provided good information about the area. We only ventured out of the area to go hiking at the State Park which was under a 12 minute drive. Most of the time was spent kayaking and fishing. Although the cabin is located high above the dock, we had no problem carrying our kayak down the well-kept stairs to the water. As for fishing, my husband and son enjoyed catching 8 fish(catfish and carp) in one
day. Some were caught from the kayak, but most were caught directly from the dock.

Overall, we had a wonderful 5 days and look forward to returning before long. The cabin and vacation were everything we hoped it would be. Thank you , Jim for sharing your property .
