Thanks to all our wonderful clients who've shared their love of Smith Mountain Lake with us. Our beautiful home is under contract to a new set of owners who plan to reserve it as a private family retreat. Therefore, there will be no further bookings at our little oasis.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our time hosting our guests from all over the world. If you were a part of that, THANK YOU! If you missed the chance to stay with us, you can still come to Sans Souci in Las Terrenas!
All the best!

About Anneliese & Bill Piatt
We first met in West Africa when serving in the Peace Corps many years ago. We've lived, worked and traveled around the world, picking up many ideas that have been incorporated into this special place. We open a private wing of our home to B&B guests primarily as a hobby, because we both enjoy meeting interesting people and get pleasure from sharing this special corner of the world.
Anneliese & Bill Piatt purchased this Chalet in 1999
Why Anneliese & Bill Piatt chose Huddleston
This is a luxurious property, tastefully & discretely adorned with original art, that exudes an air of timelessness that is primarily associated with island living in the tropics. We started with a great lot and then spent nearly 10 years perfecting the complete package - from the interior amenities & appointments to the park-like grounds.
What makes this Chalet unique
This is the only part of the lake that has an unobstructed view of Smith Mountain & the 5,000 acre wilderness preserve. The water is the deepest and cleanest on the entire lake. The dark night sky, unpolluted with neighbors' lights, provides a stunning view of the stars - as impressive as any we've seen anywhere in the US!

Best vacation for relaxation!
Gorgeous property run and maintained by warm, friendly hosts. They gave us information about the area and helped us with mapping things out. Home was immaculate and private. Breakfasts were out of this world. Definitely going back as often as possible!
Beautiful spot with gracious hosts!
My family had a wonderful experience at San Souci. Our accommodations were lovely, and the setting on the lake could not have been more perfect. Anna and Bill were delightful hosts, offering delicious meals and great advice for our stay. We highly recommend a getaway at this little piece of paradise!
Wonderful location, wonderful B&B, wonderful people
We had quite a getaway to Sans Souci in Huddleston. We were looking for a place where we could spend time together as a family to get away from the hectic day to day. My wife, 3 year old daughter and I got just that. The dock, water, beach were absolutely divine and whenever there a free, unoccupied time we always felt drawn down there. Bill and Anne, as well as there sweet grandkids, were always welcoming and hospitable-offering recommendations for places to eat and things to do in the area. And although our toddler family dynamic sometimes created more noise or drama than the place deserved, they never missed a beat and were gracious from beginning to end. We will gladly return, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sans Souci to any and everyone. Plus plus vacation.
Amazing! Relaxing! Beautiful!
We had the most relaxing stay. The private apartment was private and had everything we needed. The property is even better than the pictures. We kayaked and swam in the lake. Great breakfasts too. Cannot overstate how much we enjoyed our stay. Will definitely be goi g back.
