Huddleston Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Carming, tranquil cabin with breathtaking views EASY ACCESSE TO WATER,


We offer kayaks for rent and a two person canoe for $75.00 each.

Welcome to Cedar Key Village at Smith Mountain Lake. This spectacular all Cedar Cabin is located on beautiful and is 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. 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.

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. The walkway has beautiful all season gardens on either side with well over 150 plantings. You will also enjoy the gardens sitting on your deck and the abundance of color it offers!

We welcome up to 4 Guests at our lovely one level living cedar cabin. The Cabin features 2 Bedrooms and 1 full Bathroom with shower. We just renovated the bath and the kitchen with all new appliances. 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. It has 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 new wicker table and chairs. We put in a new kitchen in 2012 with tiled back splash adding even more to the charm of the cabin. In 2012, we purchased all new leather sofa and chair, both recline and the chair also rocks. You will love the comfort of the furniture throughout the house and on the deck. New beds were purchased in 2012 as well and we refinished the hardwood flooring throughout.

The home has central air and heat. We offer satellite television with XM radio channels We also offer free internet access.

Our no wake 60 acres cove is famous for its abundance and variety of fish. It is where the strippers spawn every year and fisherman catch bass, muskies and cat fish right off our docks. You will see an exciting array of wild life including eagles, owls, ospreys, humming birds, wild turkey and of course deer but we also have several albino deer which are spectacular to see if you are lucky.

Ideally located in southwest Virginia's mountain foothills, the beauties of landscape, mountains and lake provide perfect tranquility for your vacation holiday. Each season offers delights for the senses. Spring brings beautiful mountain laurels, azaleas, and dogwoods. Summers are lush with the aroma of heavy woods and an array of flower blossoms. Crape myrtles surround our property in late summer bursting our gardens with a variety of color. Autumn paints the landscape in burning brush strokes of red, gold, and orange. Each season is unique. Each a part of the beauty that surrounds our Cabin.

Quiet, serene, beautiful -- a fresh adventure in the leisure life awaits you. Pick your pleasure. Maybe it's a romantic winter weekend. Or a family designed dip into summer water sports. An autumn escape to see Smith Mountain on fire with ever changing colors. Or spring's first battle with the bass and muskies. No matter, you will find them all!

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.

Why Alicia Yowell chose Smith Mountain Lake

Amazing views of the lake and mountains surrounded by deep woods. There are very few homes on the lake that have such a beautiful view. The gardens in front of the cabin are simply lovely. My husband worked hard for four years to create this magic for you! The all cedar cabin is very well maintained and always spotlessly clean. Read the reviews, everyone just loves it. It is simply charming and inviting. You will not want your vacation to end.

What makes this cabin unique

Totally renovated, including new kitchen,l bathroom, living furniture, beds and deck furniture

Over sized deck

No wake cove, but only two foot ball fields to the open water

Easy access to the water front, even drive to your dock

Semi- shared dock with boat slip in deep water

Beautiful all season gardens lake side that is simply amazing

Charming, one mile walk on our country road, surrounded by a hardwood forest.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our staty at the cottage. It is a great peaceful getaway from the world of work!Unfortunetely, it rained and went down to the 60's for the first 3 days. However, it warmed up quickly and we fished, swam, boated and water skied. The Lake and scenery is spectacular. This is on of the most relazing vacations I have ever had. Hope you all enjoy it as much as we did

This amazing home came loaded with everything from spices, paper towels, toilet paper, plates/cups, utensils, cutting board, cling wrap, foil, etc! They even had some board games & a few small toys (for children..adults too I guess!). We rented a Pontoon for the entire day @ SML and it was a quick 20 minute ride. Shared a dock with the next door cabin and kids had fun fishing off the dock!

My only issue is that I'm allergic to dogs/cats, and the house def. had some sort of fur that made my eyes itch & skin break out. Also, the owner's live behind that property in case you need anything. Just don't try having more than 4 people over.

Owner's Response: Thanks Quoc for your nice review. I know we are strict about the number of folks we rent to but we are on a very old and fragile septic system. If it goes, we are facing an extremely expensive replacement, up to $250,000. The resort was built in the early 1960's and we all are equally responsible for a failed system. This is why all of us are very careful to adhere to the county requirement of two people per bedroom. The county is as well trying to protect the lake from failed septic systems.

Perfect cabin for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just stayed for Labor Day weekend, and thoroughly enjoyed the place. We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a quaint getaway to Smith Mountain Lake. The owners were extremely attentive, friendly and communication was top notch. We will certainly be back again in the future. Thanks!

Beautiful lake and cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin and lake!! It was gorgeous, very peaceful, amazing views from the back deck, and we made amazing memories that weekend. Alicia was so wonderful to work with and she allowed us to bring our senior dog along with us which meant the world to us. I would definitely love to return to this beautiful place.

Wonderful Visit!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at this beautiful cabin! The cabin and beautiful backdrop are even more stunning that we had anticipated based on this listing. Not only was the cabin beautiful but it was also clean and furnished in a top notch fashion. The deck is simply amazing! Alicia was amazing to work with from start to finish - responsive, warm, and full of great tips and information. I would recommend this property to friends and family without reservation! Just having an opportunity to spend time on the dock and eat on the beautiful deck of the cabin made this vacation one of the best and most restful that we have ever had. Thank you for the great stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and we are so happy you had such a wonderful spot. It is indeed one of the best kept secretes of the lake. There is a reason why realtors have waiting lists from clients to purchase a house in Cedar Key.

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.
