Huddleston cabin description

The Cedar Cabin at Silver Bay View Cottages offers grand and spectacular views of the lake and Smith Mountain in a quiet, private setting populated with beautiful Loblolly pines and sweeping lawns. A private deep-water dock offers easy access for boating, swimming and sunbathing. The cabin is located on a point that marks the entry to Witcher Creek, one of the best fishing areas on the lake. Between the Cedar Cabin and the Main House, the Point offers a combined capacity of up to 16 people, making it the ideal location for family reunions. We can accommodate up to 24 people between four properties that include the Main House, the Cedar Cabin and Cabins 1 and 2 that are a 3 minute walk away. 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 can look across to undeveloped wilderness.

Hot Tub: The 7' 8' Hot Tub accommodates up to 6 people with views of the lake and mountains.

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.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: Jim is an engineer/entrepeneur who, in addition to running Silver Bay, designs Arts & Crafts homes and advises emerging technology companies. www.ErlerDesign.com Catriona is a garden author/photographer/ speaker who has written 9 books and countless articles for national and international publications. See her articles in the Smith Mountain Laker Magazine (free at local businesses). www.CatrionaTudorErler.com

              Why the Owner Chose Huddleston:
              The Erlers purchased Cabin 1 in 1993 and began offering it as a rental a few years later. As the rental business grew, they purchased Cabin 2 and soon learned that there was a desparate need for accomdations large enough for reunions. When the Main House and Cedar Cabin became available in 2002, they purchased them and began major rennovations to prepare them for large reunions. Since 2003 Silver Bay has been a first choice on Smith Mountain Lake for reunions.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              The Cedar Cabin is at the Point View location and offers lovely vistas of Smith Mountain Lake. It is the largest of the open beam cedar cabins, capable of accommodating up to 6 overnight guests.
