The resort is perfect for large reunions as several other cabins are available for rent as well.

Because the cove is “no wake” you can swim, kayak or canoe without being disturbed by jet skies and motor boats, a rarity on the lake. We are only 500’ to the entrance to the main channel so you don’t have go far before you can produce a wake. The cove is surrounded by a 2000 acre wildlife mountainous nature preserve so your views are of deep woods, silhouetted by Smith Mountain and its surrounding mountains. Smith Mountain Lake has 22,000 acres of clean water and has 500 miles of shoreline. There is a mile long drive to reach our cabin that is just magical. It is deeply wooded with an abundance of hardwoods on both sides. Once you have made this turn on our lane, you will be delighted with the serine, natural beauty that surrounds our home. The views are amazing from the cabin! Everywhere you look, you see beautiful Smith Mountain, undeveloped woods and the lake.
We offer easy access to the lake either by driving or walking the road which leads to the waterfront or you can take the walkway directly to the lake.

I was a social worker for years in the District and then worked as a realtor for 22 years in Northern Virginia. We have two wonderful adult children who love Cedar Key. We made wonderful memories here as I know you will.

                  Why the Owner Chose Huddleston:
                  Amazing views of the lake and mountains surrounded by deep woods. There are very few homes on the lake that have such a beautiful view. The gardens in front of the cabin are simply lovely. My husband worked hard for four years to create this magic for you! The all cedar cabin is very well maintained and always spotlessly clean. Read the reviews, everyone just loves it. It is simply charming and inviting. You will not want your vacation to end.
