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.

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

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.

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.

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!!

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!!

Best Spot on the Lake!!!

I really can't say enough about our stay here over Memorial Day weekend. The owner was incredibly wonderful. The sunsets, breathtaking, and the house was stunning. It was immaculate and resembled a mix between Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware. We spent the days out on a rented boat and the evenings fishing from the dock or shore or sitting on the porch and watching the sun go down. We've stayed in a VRBO on Smith Mountain Lake before and this was by far the best experience we've had. Top to bottom it was a two thumbs up rental!

Our perfect long weekend on the lake.

This house is the perfect lake house with a panaromic view of Smith Mountain Lake. We appreciated the
house being so clean, it was as if it was our house that had just been cleaned by the best cleaning company. The openess of the kitchen, dining area and family room was comfortable and worked well for our large family. The porch and patio area gave us extra hang out space and take advantage of the great view. Our kids enjoyed the badminton and volleyball in the back yard, and even slept out in a tent one nite, that we brought. Would highly recomend this house to anyone who appreciates a beautiful lake home with the best views.

Car: not necessary

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. 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.
