About Laura Hochstein

Bryan and Laura Hochstein live in Greensboro, NC, with 3 children. Bryan grew up in the NE and Laura in the South - Smith Mountain Lake offers the best of both worlds in one place. We hope to retire there one day.

Laura Hochstein purchased this house in 2010

Why Laura Hochstein chose Huddleston

We have been visiting SML since 2000. We fell in love immediately and quickly bought our own home. After several years of enjoying the lake, we invested in this property so we can help others enjoy it too! You will marvel at the crystal clear water and the beautiful landscape - both around the lake and in the surround area.

What makes this house unique

It is hard to find a home this size. It is great for large family and friend gatherings and celebrations. It also offers privacy for part of the group, with the separate basement apartment, which includes all the amenities of any home. The cove offers privacy and peace. There are wooded areas surrounding the home. The dock offers lots of space to lounge, fish or get ready for boating. 2 paddleboards available for rental onsite; they have detachable seats so that they can be converted to kayaks.

Worked great for my family and sister's family

  • 5 of 5

Laura was great to work with, and the house worked great for my family and sister's family. All together there were 4 adults and 7 kids. We had a great time and really enjoyed the dock? Good water location and was able to dock our ski boat to the floating portion of the dock.

needed more comfort

  • 4 of 5

Didn't know apartment was separate. Bedrooms downstairs were cold. Couldn't regulate temp so people upstairs were not hot. More hangers would be nice to hang up coats. Beds were not comfortable. Really enjoyed the lake view.

Enjoyable Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

Had family from 4 different areas. Lovely location. Beautiful views of the lake. Enjoyed sitting on the deck and relaxing on the dock. Nice opportunity to sit and visit with family. Because we were cooking a Thanksgiving dinner, having 2 kitchens was a bonus.

Too cold for swimming, but enjoyed the fall colors and lovely views. Built a fire in the fire pit - perfect for a crisp evening.

Awesome house for 3 families.

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time this weekend. It was nice to have 2 kitchens and a lower level for the younger kids who were up early. We loved sitting on the dock while the kids played in the water. The deck was nice at night to watch all the shooting stars and satellites flying overhead. We will definitely make this a yearly family reunion.

Great property, located on a quiet section of the lake with great views. Large dock which was great for sitting out on and swimming. As good as advertised.

Great time at SML!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a home in SML. We had the best time. The house was perfect. It was clean. The paddle boards we rented for the week kept losing air. It was a pain to keep having to pump it up. But overall was a great trip. Weather was amazing. Thanks 😊
