Overview

Huddleston Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4, 2 bedrooms, private dock, Romantic Retreat

Cabins 1 and 2 are in a row of ten that rim the shore of a secluded cove on Smith Mountain Lake. The Cabin 1 is on the end, making it one of the most private of all. There are wilderness views of undeveloped forest and the lake, as well as Smith Mountain. The cabin is located on Witcher Creek, which is a no wake area. This feature makes swimming very safe, and a sense of peacefulness prevails that you will not find in other areas of the lake that experience more boat traffic. A private deep-water dock is shared by the two cabins, offering easy access for boating, swimming and sunbathing. Both cabins are two-bedroom, one-bath lakefront homes, with solid cedar construction, open-beam ceilings and hardwood floors. Silver Bay View Cottages are ideal for reunions. We can accommodate up to 24 people between four properties that include the Main House, the Cedar Cabin and Cabins 1 and 2. Be sure and check out these other properties as well.

Swimming: There is nothing more enjoyable than to stretch out on the dock with a good book, and then dive into the clear, warm water for a refreshing swim. The lake is one of the cleanest in the East Coast, and as you swim or relax, you are looking across to undeveloped wilderness.

Boating: There may be no better lake in the Mid-Atlantic region for boating. The 20,000 acres of Smith Mountain Lake and its 40-mile length make it a perfect place for water skiing, speed boating, canoeing, kayaking or sailing. Power boats and wave runners can be rented at several locations on the lake, including: Bridgewater Plaza Marina (Boats can also be picked up at the State Park), Parrot Cove (Parrot Cove also rents Kayaks), Parkway Marina (formerly knows as Saunders Marina), Mitchell's Point Marina or Virgil Naff Sea Doo (wave runners only). The closest boat launch and boat rental is Mitchell's Point Marina.

Fishing: Fishing opportunities at Silver Bay View Cottages are unbelievable. The properties are located on Witcher Creek where the stripers spawn every spring. The lake is regularly stocked with game fish, and contains striped bass, large and small mouth bass, muskies, northern pike, and an assortment of small game fish. Fishing guides are available to introduce you to the lake, including: Captain Bert's Fishin' Charters, Mike's Striper Guide Service, Rockfish Adventures.

Why Jim Erler, Manager LakeAway Vacation Rentals chose Smith Mountain Lake

Cabin 1 was the first of the Silver Bay View properties and was the inspiration for our name. While smaller than the Point View properties, it remains a very special place for a cozy escape.

What makes this cabin unique

Cabin 1 is at the Bay View location and offers a private setting overlooking the Silver Bay portion of Smith Mountain Lake with Smith Mountain above it.

We had a very nice 2 1/2 days at cabin 1. Not a 4 star resort but adequate and equipped for a relaxing time.

Great place for a weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay this past weekend at this well-equipped, comfortable cabin. We were upgraded to the Cedar cabin which was such a nice surprise due to some work that was scheduled to be done in the original cabin we selected. Plenty of space, a nice fireplace, incredible views. Pet-friendly also a major plus. Only disappointment was that we expected there to be wifi but the network was not available to any of us. Otherwise, definitely recommend and will be back!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your visit. I'm so sorry about the WiFi. We had the floors refinished a few days before you arrived, and the workmen didn't reconnect the WiFi. In the future, please call us and we will be happy to come out and fix any problem immediately. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Jim

A great get-away

  • 5 of 5

Cooked a full Thanksgiving meal for a family of four at the cabin and had a great weekend! The cabin was in great condition and very accommodating. Toured the nearby towns and visited the nearby Smith Mountain Dam which was a great site to see.

Simple cabin in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

I brought my visiting west-coast friend up to SML for the weekend to experience the lake in autumn. The cabin suited our needs perfectly, and Jim Erler was a total delight to rent from. For this very reasonable price, expect to have a lovely, nature-filled view of a quiet area, and a comfortable cabin. I have no complaints! Some things to know: Parking is tight, but manageable. There's no electrical outlet in the bathroom. This shouldn't be a deal breaker, but if you're a person who wants to blow dry or "do" their hair, bring a little mirror and set up elsewhere. The cabins are fairly close together, so if your neighbor has barking dogs or no inside voice, you'll know it. The neighboring guests did have two small dogs, and one of them was yappy and drove us off the porch for a time, but they were otherwise very nice. Thanks, Jim!
