Huddleston bed and breakfast description

Sans Souci is French for 'care free.' There could not be a more apt description for this very special property. We are located in the most beautiful and pristine corner of the most scenic lake in the mid-Atlantic region of the US.

Sans Souci offers stunning views of Smith Mountain & a 5,000 acre wilderness preserve from a point lot. Porch, patio, beach & dock offer a wide variety of opportunities to relax & take in the natural beauty of Smith Mountain Lake. Swim, sail, kayak, windsurf, fish, ski, wakeboard & wakesurf directly from the property.

The photogenic views, clean air, natural environment and comfort are simply unparalleled. A two or three day stay is like magic for the soul. This is a truly special property!


The Lake offers four waterfront golf courses, more than a dozen waterfront restaurants, frequent weekend events, a well-known art gallery, boardwalk and easy access to hiking.

The luxurious suite, built in a separate wing of the house, offers wood ceilings in the bedroom, radiant floor heat, luxurious rain shower, satellite TV, wireless Internet and an amazing attention to detail. It is decorated with original art by local artists, family members and African craftsmen. There is a king sized bed with 600-count cotton sheets & European comforters in the bedroom provides a great night's sleep. There is also a queen sized futon in the sitting room.

A photo of the patio even served as the cover for the Roanoke Area Visitor's Guide and a May, 2009 article about Roanoke in US Airways Magazine. That same photo has become the iconic symbol of lake living at SML.

The entire home was featured in a Laker Magazine article in Jan-Feb 2011 titled, 'In Harmony With Nature.' Read it online here: http://www.smithmountainlake.com/homes/lakerMagazine/wb/272108

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About the owner: 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.

                  Why the Owner 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.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
                  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!
