The Point offers grand and spectacular views of the lake and Smith Mountain in a quiet, private setting populated with beautiful Loblolly pines and sweeping lawns.

Why Jim Erler chose Huddleston
When the Point became available in 2002, Jim and Catriona purchased them and began major rennovations to prepare them for large reunions. Since 2003 Silver Bay has been a first choice on Smith Mountain Lake for reunions.
With the lake becoming a year-round destination there was a growing demand for hot tubs. So, in the spring of 2012 the Erlers undertook a major renovation project where hot tubs were added to both houses, and all the properties were updated with new HDTVs and furnishings.
What makes this estate unique
The houses on the Point enjoy the finest views of the Silver Bay rental properties, and one of the finest vistas at Smith Mountain Lake. It is also the largest of the properties, capable of accommodating up to 16 overnight guests.
