Welcome to Cedar Key Village at Smith Mountain Lake and our all Cedar Cabin, one of eleven homes nestled in a secluded no wake cove. We also own the larger house in the community which sleeps 6. See 212765 if you would like to book a larger family of friend vacation and or book both for a reunion. The resort is perfect for large reunions as several other cabins are available for rent as well.

Because the cove is “no wake” you can swim, kayak or canoe without being disturbed by jet skies and motor boats, a rarity on the lake. We are only 500’ to the entrance to the main channel so you don’t have go far before you can produce a wake. The cove is surrounded by a 2000 acre wildlife mountainous nature preserve so your views are of deep woods, silhouetted by Smith Mountain and its surrounding mountains. Smith Mountain Lake has 22,000 acres of clean water and has 500 miles of shoreline.

There is a mile long drive to reach our cabin that is just magical. It is deeply wooded with an abundance of hardwoods on both sides. Once you have made this turn on our lane, you will be delighted with the serine, natural beauty that surrounds our home.

The views are amazing from the cabin! Everywhere you look, you see beautiful Smith Mountain, undeveloped woods and the lake. My husband planted a lush lakeside gardens years ago, which is simply beautiful with its array of colors and textures.

You will also enjoy the gardens sitting on your deck and the abundance of color it offers!

We offer easy access to the lake either by driving or walking the road which leads to the waterfront or you can take the walkway directly to the lake. We are one of the few places on the lake that you can actually drive to your dock. No better access is available!

A six foot picture window in the master bedroom provides magical views of the water and mountains. Imagine breakfast in bed enjoying the awesome beauty. We also hired an artist to draw a rendition of the view from the cabin and create two magnificent stained glass window; one in the living room and one in the master bedroom. Just beautiful!

The cabin offers a charming dining room area adjoined by a living room which leads out to an over sized deck. The deck has a yesteryear glider and beautiful wicker table and chairs.

About Alicia Yowell

We are both retired and loving it! We were the original developers of Cedar Key. We purchased it in 1983 when it was a operated as resort since the 1970's. We have loved Cedar Key and have been an active member to maintain its beauty and serenity. My husband worked for the Farm Credit Administration for over 30 years as its Chief Financial Analyst. I was a social worker for years in the District and then worked as a Realtor for 22 years in Northern Virginia. We have two wonderful adult children who love Cedar Key. We made wonderful memories here as I know you will.

Alicia Yowell purchased this Cabin in 1983

Why Alicia Yowell chose Huddleston

It is simply charming and inviting. You will not want your vacation to end.

                                                            • We are located in a charming cedar cabin village of 11 homes with one of the best views on the lake. Our view of Smith Mountain is simply breathtaking. Our cabin is sited in one of the few no wake coves on the lake. The cove itself is about 60 acres, which is surrounded by undeveloped woods. This means safe and peaceful swimming ... no jet skis or fast speed boats We are only two football fields to the main channel to the lake but the 'No Wake' cove provides a serine protection, not found in lake communities.

                                                              Had a great stay in the cabin - it was a very nice getaway. Will definitely consider coming back.


                                                              Beautiful cabin with a perfect view!

                                                              Our trip got off to a horrible start due to two different family emergencies. However, once we settled in, everything about the cabin helped all of the stress fade away. This was a PERFECT property and we will definitely be back this Summer! I can't recommend it highly enough!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thanks David, I am so glad you two enjoyed the cabin. I know the start of your vacation was a bit challenging so I am happy the cabin and its beautiful views helped ease the stress.

                                                              We would love for you to come back this summer. As you know most of my clients are repeat and I am typically booked by the end of March.

                                                              I did purchase a two person kayak with a small middle seat, perfect for a dog. So many of my clients wanted to kayak with their dog so we got this kayak this winter.


                                                              Beautiful weekend and we hope to return!

                                                              My family of four spent the weekend of Nov 4 at the cabin and had a lovely time. The cabin was very clean, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with all of the cooking tools we needed. The deck is large and has a beautiful view of the lake and the wildlife preserve across the water. We arrived while the leaves were at peak color and the scenery was calming, beautiful and quiet. My family hopes to come back during the warmer months to take advantage of the water, kayaks and canoe. What a beautiful place, and the cabin was in perfect condition. Thanks for providing a lovely place for us to visit, Alicia!

                                                              Thanks Amy, so glad you and your family had such a good time. You all are most welcome to return anytime. As I had mentioned to you, about 75% of rentals are return clients. Everyone loves the cabin, its lake and mountain views and our lakeside garden. Try coming in the summer so you can enjoy the water, the no wake cove makes swimming and kayaking so enjoyable.

My husband is the one who planted the beautiful lakeside garden, there is well over 200 plants in the gardens surrounding the cabin. It is so nice to hear our clients now telling us home much they enjoy the garden and of course the view is as you know is breath taking. Several clients who have vacationed all over the lake has said we have the best view on the lake.

                                                              Hope you can return soon. You are always welcome. Over 75% of our clients are return visitors.
