CLASSIC LAKE HOUSE RALPH LAUREN WOULD LOVE (WITH ACRES OF FLAT LAWNS)

Huddleston House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms (10 beds- zoned for 8 adults + 2 children under 2yrs)

If Ralph Lauren ever featured a lake house in any of his advertisements, this would be the property he would use. Almost every room features a magnificent and unfettered view across broad expanses of Smith Mountain Lake. There is a link below to additional photographs. The covered back porch faces West and is where we sit to watch the kids playing in the yard or watch the sunsets while sharing a glass of wine and listening to our favorite tunes through speakers located throughout the propery (via satellilte radio).

The lake house sits on almost 3 acres and is almost completely surrounded on three sides by the lake. It has a secluded cove for safe swimming and a large boat house with covered lounging as well. There is a grassy field for soccer play and another for lawn tennis (badminton).

Around the corner from Mitchell's Point Marina where you can rent boats and wave runners. The Marina also provides free wireless internet and has a bar and grill with excellent food.

PETS: The only pets we permit are adult dogs who are well trained and require a small fee for pets. Please call to discuss the fee and additional security deposit that may be required.

About Reed Tolber

I am an attorney practicing law in both Virginia and Florida. My wife stopped working as an investment money manager (she has a CFA and MBA) to help raise our twin boys, now teenagers. Our family loves the water so, when we left Florida ten years ago we were excited to find this wonderful lake house permitting us to spend large amounts of quality time together as a family. The whole family enjoys skiing, wake boarding and boating. Many afternoons we spend floating in the cove just off our boat house spending time with the boys - when they aren't wrestling with each other and throwing each other into the lake from our floating trampoline - kng of the mountain style.

Reed Tolber purchased this house in 2007

Why Reed Tolber chose Huddleston

We love Huddleston and being on the Bedford side of the lake. Our lake house is located on a very wide part of the Craddock Creek part of the lake and the water quality is much clearer than the more northern part of the lake. That is because by the time the various streams and rivers join and get down to our part of the lake, all of the silt in the water has settled- usually by the time it goes through the winding bends just northwest of our part of the lake. We also love being right around the corner from a great marina- Mitchell's Point Marina. It makes it easy to get gas for the boat and wave runner and means we are close to a nice bar and grill and ice cream for the kids. On the weekends, Mitchell's often has live entertainment in the form of local bands. By boat, we are about three minutes away. By car, we are about one half mile away from Mitchell's point. We are also close - by water- to Mariner's Landing, a very nice hotel and golfing destination with great dining as well.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
I have traveled for 37 years for business so traveling for vacation is not my favorite thing to do.
But 1 week at this beautiful property and we all were beyond happy. It was so relaxing and everything was so easy.
The dock was about a 30 second walk from the house, and what a fabulous dock it was! The house was so relaxing and comfortable and easy. We are all chefs and the kitchen was everything we needed. The beds were so comfortable. The porch was amazing. And every night was movie night.
If you are looking for a house with an incredible spot on the lake, a great dock for the kids to swim, and a thoroughly comfortable house, this is the one you want!!

Best Lake House & Property!

This lake house was perfect from inside to outside.

Perfectly located on the lake, Fabulous flat land made walking to the dock a piece of cake for the young and old.

Inside was very clean and cozy. They supply everything but your clothes and food, which made packing so much easier and relaxing.

We rented a pontoon boat which was a great hit and made it nice going to lake restaurants for lunch and dinner. The kids spent hours jumping on and off the trampoline.

The owner was wonderful to communicate with and sending us helpful information for our trip. We hope to return again and again.

Thank you!

Lovely Easter Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five--including grandpa-- spent a wonderful Easter holiday at this idyllic property. We had all of the outdoor space our urban children craved, making for great photo ops and special memories. The house was so quaint, yet provided every modern convenience needed, including atmosphere-building surround sound! The nearby drive-in movie theater helped bridge more than generation of film buff in our family. Overall a really terrific experience!

Great house, great owners

  • 4 of 5
This is our second time staying 2 weeks at this house and it was as good as we remembered teh first time (2 years ago). Reed did a nice job of communicating before, during and after our visit and he supplies quite a bit of things for the house (makes for easier packing). Beautiful views, nice property, large dock and overall just a really solid home to rent for a family or group.

GREAT HOME, GREAT LAKE, GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Wow!!!! What a beautiful lake home--private, clean, very comfortable, beautifully appointed and has everything(and more) that one could possibly need(towels, games, movies, well equipped kitchen, etc...)

To top all, the owner was very gracious and great with his timely and detailed communication, which was much appreciated.

My family would LOVE to return immediately!!

  • 5 of 5
This house is so comfortable. Beautifuly decorated.....great flat yard for both grandparents and little kids to run around and play......hard to find as many properties are with steep yards. Love the music system!! So great to have all the choices for our entertainment. With several families coming it was great to have a little division in the home also! Beautiful place to stay....awesome view!!

Smith Mountain Lake has wine festivals, art festivals, flea markets and the like, throughout the year. Check online for those activities. The lake is famous for its bass fishing, and annually hosts a bass fishing tournament (hosted and filmed by ESPN sports network). The National D-Day Memorial, designed by Dickson Architects and Associates is in Bedford County, the county where this lake house is located. The Memorial exists in tribute to the valor, fidelity, and sacrifice of the Allied Forces on D-Day, 6 June 1944. The United States Congress warranted the establishment of the Memorial at Bedford, Virginia, the community suffering the country’s severest per capita losses on D-Day.

Notes:
Since we view the house as a retreat, we decided not to have the distractions of the internet and television. Instead, we have set up a home theater system with a high definition DVD player and suuround sound to play movies every night. Most guests are able to use their cell phones as a data 'hot spot' to access the internet. In an emergency, there is a free Wi-Fi hot spot (wireless internet cafe) at Mtichell's Point Marina, a very short walk from the house by land and a two minute boat ride (two coves away). Mitchell's Point Marina is a wonderful resource for renters. Mitchell's features a really cute and quaint bar and grill that is owned by one of the areas most popular caterers. He serves some of the best smoked barbecue you will ever taste! The Marina also rents boats, wave runners and water ski equipment and rafts to pull behind a boat.
