Overview

About the property

Family-friendly home with 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, large dock with mountain view

'Our Point of View' is located in Saunders Point Neighborhood on Smith Mountain Lake, near the SML Dam - buoy marker R4. It's nestled in a large cove where you can enjoy jet-skiing and water-skiing without entering the nearby main body of the lake.

You'll be able to relax with an early morning cup of coffee, while enjoying the full view of the lake and Smith Mountain. And you can do this while sitting in the lovely, spacious kitchen, or on the comfortable front deck -- or lounging near the water on the large deck.

The very gentle slope of the large backyard leads to the large deck where everyone can enjoy the sun and water. There is a covered deck that allows some shade from the midday sun.

The house has four bedrooms -- with two queen beds on the main floor, two twins in the loft, and a full bed in a basement bedroom. The kitchen is clean and efficient, has all the appliances you need, and plenty of storage in cabinets.

The game room with foosball and table tennis table in the basement is perfect for the kids on those rare rainy days.

Smith Mountain Lake fishing is spectacular -- with record catches each year. For golfing enthusiasts, there are several challenging local golf courses.

You will truly enjoy our vacation home!

PLEASE DO NOT INQUIRE ABOUT PARTIAL WEEKS. WE ONLY RENT WEEKLY.

Are we in the right place?

  • 5 of 5

My sister arrived at the house first and sent a text that said "It's so nice that I'm afraid I'm in the wrong house." When I arrived, I saw what she meant. Despite pouring over the website and being familiar with the property (we stayed nearby for the last 10 summers), I was stunned at the beautiful (but remarkably comfortable) house. The pictures are certainly accurate but are nowhere near as awesome as the real thing.

We spent the majority of the week on the deck or the dock, but the house had plenty of room for our crew - particularly the well-stocked kitchen for the foodies among us. The owners were friendly, accomodating, and exceptionally easy to work with. I have stayed in another house in this cove yearly, so we already knew the cove, the view, and area of the lake were PERFECT for our adventures. However, we were anxious picking a new place and I was worried we wouldn't be able to overcome our nostalgia for the old place... I couldn't be more wrong. Everyone agreed this is the new place for us! We hopped over to Mitchell's Marina to pick up our boat rental, caught BIG catfish and carp from the dock, kayaked out to the point and stood on the shoal, dove for "seashells" under the dock, played corn hole on the flat-ish lot (a rare find in the area), visited the local marinas, and left all our problems at the top of the driveway.

This truly is an EXCEPTIONAL house that is clearly cared for by its owners. Highly recommended -- except for the the week that I want it next year. ;)

Best Family Vacation to Date!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from the BEST vacation we've had as an extended family. I booked a stay for 5 adults and 3 kids (boys - 5, 7 and 10) to stay at the lake for a week. The kids were so busy fishing and swimming all day long that they almost never asked to watch a show or play a video game all week. The setup of the property is such that the adults could relax in the water or on the dock and still keep the little people in sight. Everyone thoroughly relaxed for 7 days -- it was great! I think you would be hard pressed to find a better dock setup and lake views than this house. There are plenty of chairs to enjoy the deck and dock; I recommend bringing some swimming toys and floats. The cove is super calm; floats work great! We also rented a boat from a nearby marina for 2 of the 7 days. It was a nice way to break up the week. Finally, the owners of the property were quick to reply to any questions I had. This was my first experience using VRBO.com, and I will most certainly be back!

Well Done

  • 5 of 5

This place is well thought out and well made making it a very lovely place to stay. We took a family vacation here with our grown up children.

The common areas were spacious and the living/family room looks out onto the lake without the sun streaming into the house (they angled the windows well--very clever). This room opened up to the best deck we've ever experienced. You could be in the shade or the sun. The step, as you can see in the picture, can serve as a seating area. It just merges into the grassy area which leads to the lake. Very beautiful. We're swimmers and appreciated that this property is on a quiet cove, but plenty deep enough to swim.

They had a good AC, which didn't really need except in the late afternoon. The place is well made.We found the bedrooms quiet and private and the beds were comfortable. The place was very clean. In fact, it's the cleanest place we've ever rented. We typically rent up in Maine for the summer. This is the first time we rented a home in Virginia.

We thought the price was reasonable.

Huddleston Lake Home

  • 4 of 5

The house is located near the dam side of the lake, which is my favorite part of the lake. It is a well maintained place with good accommodations. The clothes washing machine, however, was not available which is no big deal if you know it ahead of time.

I would highly recommend this place for future visitors.

Vacation 6/25/2011

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at the lake. The home was comfortable, clean and well maintained. The property was located in a great cove and the views were wonderful. Our favorite Marina is close by and we rented several watercraft during our stay. Spent much of our time out on the dock swimming, fishing, star gazing, and we usually ate lunch under the covered portion. We look forward to returning again. Thank You.

First Trip to Smith Mountain Lake

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to SML and LOVED it! The house was very spacious and clean. The deck top deck and boat decks were our favorite place to stay. The yard from the house to the water was perfect and flat so it was perfect for walking to and from.

GREAT neighborhood but far from any activities the kids wanted to do. Which was nice because it was more family time.

Highly recommend prior to your visit to reserve a boat ahead of time, you can always call and cancel. But the sell out FAST!

No ping pong table as stated, but probably due to the many new renovations that the family has been doing.

Will definitly visit again!!
