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

Come see for yourself what everyone is talking about!

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

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.

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!

We came as a group of four and loved staying at the house! Very nice and new suite with heated floors. Breakfast was incredible. The views were awesome and the hospitality was so fantastic. We hope to return for another weekend soon!

These photo wonderfully depict everything. Believe me when I say that it is sooo beautiful no matter when you visit. It was overcast much of this weekend, but the view was so serene regardless. There were the beautiful leaves of oranges and yellows and a clear view of where the cloud began on the mountain. Me and my girls just really needed a break from the everyday hustle and bustle. A place to breathe and slooooow down. Sans Souci was just what the doctor ordered. Bill and Anne were so hospitable that it felt like I was staying with extended family. I really look forward to my next visit to this little slice of heaven.

San Souci was exactly what my husband and I had in mind for our weekend getaway. A beautiful three hour drive west of Richmond, Virginia, this B&B is perfectly situated on a beautiful, quiet part of Smith Mountain Lake. Our accommodations were in a separate wing of the owners' home with separate entrance, large bedroom, comfortable bathroom, and separate TV/reading space. The home and grounds were immaculate and beautifully appointed. Anna is an excellent and creative cook - we had neglected to let her know about a dietary restriction before arriving and she was able to quickly and graciously adapt her plan to our needs. Be sure to ask for her homemade muesli as part of a breakfast during your stay! Perhaps the best part of the visit was the extensive local knowledge that Bill and Anna shared during our conversations. Since our trip was part relaxation and part real estate exploration, their 14 years of experience on the lake provided us the 'insider' knowledge to help guide future visits. Thank you!

Our stay at Sans Souci was amazing. Bill and Anne have carved out a little piece of heaven on the banks of Smith Mountain Lake. The views were magnificent, their home was detailed perfecting, and breakfast was...to die for. I can not wait until our next visit. If you are looking for a place to simply unwind and let all the stress and preasures from home go away, this is the place to do it.

Sans souci is a little piece of heaven. The views are intoxicating and the house is beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice. Sitting on the dock with a bottle of wine and watching the sunset, it really doesn't get any better. Anne and Bill are the most gracious hosts; immediately making us feel welcome and comfortable. They are both well traveled and we could have talked to them forever about their adventures around the world. I've told all of my friends to stay here, I can't wait to go back!
