LUXURIOUS EUROPEAN BED AND BREAKFAST - 1000 SF VERY PRIVATE SUITE

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!

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 queen sized futon 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!

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.

Not oversold in any way.

  • 5 of 5
San Souchi is not oversold in the advertising as many B&B locations often are. The scenery has a WOW factor of 10+ and it's there every day for you to enjoy. What a place ! The lake visability is crystal clear to about 8 ft. and neverending. The hosts ( Anne and Bill ) were most gratious ! The upstairs suite was clean, spacious and quiet.....perfect for relaxing.

Catchin' your breath...

Catchin' your breath...
  • 5 of 5
The wife and I stayed at Sans Souci as a long weekend getaway (which was also her b-day weekend). I can't remember the last time I was soooooo relaxed. I didn't realize how stressed I was until I was hanging out in the hammock by the water and realized there wasn't any noise with the exception of a couple boats going by from time to time. Every time I was near the water, I felt like I was looking at a post card. Yes....the views are that good! It was awesome to spend uninterrupted time with my wife in a setting that was beautiful, relaxing and restful. The food was fantastic and the owners very gracious. If you're looking to catch your breath in a quiet, relaxed, romantic environment....and get away from the grind of everyday life with some AWESOME breakfasts...this is definitely the place to do it!

Outstanding B&B

Outstanding B&B

We spent our 48th anniversary at San Souci and it was everything we were expecting, and more. Anne and Bill were perfect hosts and made sure that our two nights were exceptional. Starting with a beautiful suite in their home to a delicious breakfast each morning, we can't say enough good things. Even though we had never visited Smith Mountain Lake, it was great to just hang around San Souci. The property, which is Lake front, has beautiful vistas and the dock area is a boaters delight.

We have been to many B&B's here in the States and Europe and would rank San Souci among the best. Thanks Anne and Bill for a great trip. We will be back.

SANS SOUCI WON'T DISAPPOINT!

SANS SOUCI WON'T DISAPPOINT!
  • 5 of 5
Reading the other reviews, we couldn't agree more. Sans Souci is everything we had hoped for and more. The suite is spacious, modern, immaculate, and very private. All amenities were provided. The grounds and location are second to none. A gorgeous property, beautifully manicured sits along the clean lake with stunning views of Smith Mountain and the nature preserve. Bill and Anna were the most gracious and generous hosts, doing all they could to make us feel welcome and relaxed. Anna prepared gourmet breakfasts that were simply delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with them at their beautiful home. They're a wonderful couple, a real pleasure to get to know. We will definitely be back next summer with the kids and look forward to another visit to a most beautiful place with very special people!

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were looking for a place to relax and unwind. This place fit the bill perfectly. The accomodations are very comfortable and spacious. The backyard has multiple seating options (deck chairs, hammocks, etc.) to comfortably enjoy the gorgeous views. The hosts are very warm and helpful, providing information on the area, things to see and do and places to eat (their restaurant recommendations were right on). The breakfasts were delicious and filling. By having your own suite and being the only guests, you can enjoy as much privacy as you want (which isn't always possible at other b and b s.) Our experience at Sans Souci was fantastic and we hope to return soon!
