Overview

Huddleston Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Private Suite can accommodate up to four adults.

Sans Souci is French for 'care free.' There could not be a more apt description for this very special property. We are located in the most beautiful and pristine corner of the most scenic lake in the mid-Atlantic region of the US.

Sans Souci offers stunning views of Smith Mountain & a 5,000 acre wilderness preserve from a point lot. Porch, patio, beach & dock offer a wide variety of opportunities to relax & take in the natural beauty of Smith Mountain Lake. Swim, sail, kayak, windsurf, fish, ski, wakeboard & wakesurf directly from the property.

The photogenic views, clean air, natural environment and comfort are simply unparalleled. A two or three day stay is like magic for the soul. This is a truly special property!

New for this winter season! Use of our hot tub with a panoramic view of the starry skies may be added to your stay for a fee of $20 per day, for each day of booking. This is a large, four-person spa with foot jets and various back massage configurations. The southerly view toward the mountain provides an expansive, yet private view of the sky. It is the perfect way to enjoy chilly nights at the lake! Bath robes provided.

The Lake offers four waterfront golf courses, more than a dozen waterfront restaurants, frequent weekend events, a well-known art gallery, boardwalk and easy access to hiking.

The luxurious suite, built in a separate wing of the house, offers wood ceilings in the bedroom, radiant floor heat, luxurious rain shower, satellite TV, wireless Internet and an amazing attention to detail. It is decorated with original art by local artists, family members and African craftsmen. There is a king sized bed with 600-count cotton sheets & European comforters in the bedroom provides a great night's sleep. There is also a King sized ComfortSleeper platform bed in the sitting room.

A photo of the patio even served as the cover for the Roanoke Area Visitor's Guide and a May, 2009 article about Roanoke in US Airways Magazine. That same photo has become the iconic symbol of lake living at SML.

The entire home was featured in a Laker Magazine article in Jan-Feb 2011 titled, 'In Harmony With Nature.' Read it online here: http://www.smithmountainlake.com/homes/lakerMagazine/wb/272108

About Anneliese & Bill Piatt

We first met in West Africa when serving in the Peace Corps many years ago. We've lived, worked and traveled around the world, picking up many ideas that have been incorporated into this special place. We open a private wing of our home to B&B guests primarily as a hobby, because we both enjoy meeting interesting people and get pleasure from sharing this special corner of the world.

Anneliese & Bill Piatt purchased this chalet in 1999

Why Anneliese & Bill Piatt chose Huddleston

This is a luxurious property, tastefully & discretely adorned with original art, that exudes an air of timelessness that is primarily associated with island living in the tropics. We started with a great lot and then spent nearly 10 years perfecting the complete package - from the interior amenities & appointments to the park-like grounds.

What makes this chalet unique

This is the only part of the lake that has an unobstructed view of Smith Mountain & the 5,000 acre wilderness preserve. The water is the deepest and cleanest on the entire lake. The dark night sky, unpolluted with neighbors' lights, provides a stunning view of the stars - as impressive as any we've seen anywhere in the US!

This is an amazing place and even more amazing hosts.
Anne and Bill created one of the most special places I have ever seen.
They are wonderful to allow someone to share in the experience and I plan to hopefully go back many times.
The luxurious suite is comfortable, beautifully furnished and quiet.
Breakfast is absolutely fantastic and I cannot wait for springtime to go back .
Thank you very much Anne and Bill!

Best B&B on SML!

This was our first trip to Smith Mountain Lake but will certainly not be our last. Bill & Anna are such gracious hosts, well traveled and an absolute delight! As mentioned by previous reviewers, Anna’s breakfasts are amazing. The Croque Monsieur & Croque Mademoiselle are our new favorite, quite possibly the best breakfasts we’ve ever eaten. Our candlelit breakfasts were set up in the dining room as it was too chilly to have breakfast on the veranda. The views from the property are spectacular. The suite is well appointed with limited views of the lake. The veranda shown in photos is not a part of the suite (2nd level), but is located downstairs off of the owner’s portion of the home (main level). Could we have used the veranda? Certainly, but we wouldn't bother the owners just to use it. We weren't able to take advantage of the numerous amenities such as the dock/firepit/kayaks/paddleboat/etc due to the weather, all very nice options though. The hot tub option was perfect for such bad weather, great views of the lake and clear night sky. As with the rest of the home, the hot tub is of very good quality, not typically seen in a rental hot tub. The property is approximately 20-25 minutes from restaurants/commercial areas but worth the drive to have such a peaceful location. Bottom line: Would we stay here again? Yes!

Something VERY special!!

  • 5 of 5
Consider this the best of accommodations, not only on Smith Mountain Lake, but incomparable to any bed and breakfast we've visited over our 41 years of marriage! Anna and Bill made us feel like "friends" rather than paying guests. Their home is something to behold and savor, just by simply taking in the architecture, to the landscaped, lake view setting, to Anna's tasty breakfasts and her design savvy. Beautiful! Wonderful! We highly recommend for something special and unforgettable!

SLICE OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
WOW! My boyfriend and I love coming to SML. Bill and Anna are such wonderful people and welcoming hosts! We always need time to unwind and just breathe, we got it! Everything was great and very accommodating! The food was delish! We came for a special birthday occasion. As a special request, Anna was so kind to provide a wine and cheese spread for our arrival at cost.
We have stayed at a "condo" rental complex nearby numerous times before and won't do that again. This is the place to come kick back, relax and take it all in.
Thanks again, Bill and Anna!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter, and I spent a 3-day weekend at San Souci and wished we had stayed longer. The upstairs suite, with a private entrance, offers 2 spacious rooms and a bath with a great shower. The pictures are accurate on the beauty and quality. The rooms are actually much larger than I shown with ample closet space, seating, a table, a sink, micro and mini-fridge. The linens were very nice quality and felt great. Lots of little touches and great lighting. Every room was very clean and you can tell that the owners love their home and maintain it well. The structures were all built with quality and attention to detail. Breakfast was spectacular. We ate on the veranda overlooking the lake. The hosts were gracious and truly care free. If you stayed inside after breakfast, you could faintly hear Anna playing the piano. That was a special treat for me as I would sit quietly and listen. The very best part for us was outside. There is a beach and two ladders off of the multiple-docks provide easy access to the water. There is a dock for guests and a fun paddle boat. The landscaping and views were spectacular. It was simply wonderful. My husband summed it up by saying "the stress melted and my shoulders dropped about two inches".
I have already recommended San Souci to my best friends and loved-ones.
