Beautiful ranch home with a lower walkout finished basement, built in 2006. Nicely furnished; all you need to bring is your suitcases, groceries, trash bags, charcoal, hygiene supplies, and toilet paper and toiletries. You also may want to bring fire wood if you plan to use our outdoor fire pit so you don't have to scrounge around the area or buy it. Just about everything else is provided. If you're vacationing with your friends or have older children that want some privacy...this is it. This house has a maximum approved occupancy for 10 people over age 2, plus 4 children under age 3 at the time of the rental. The upper level has 3 bedrooms (2 king and 1 queen size beds), 2 full baths, a modern kitchen, dining room, living room with a 42' satelite TV, and a laundry room. Walk out to a large balcony with a stainless steel gas BBQ grill, and sit back in comfortable chairs and enjoy a nice view of the lake with beautiful evening sunsets. The lower level is almost self-sustaining with 3 bedrooms (2 with queen beds and the 3rd with a bunk bed (1 full size bed on the bottom and 1 twin bed on top)). There's also a queen size sleeper sofa in the recreation room. There's 1 full bath, a partial kitchen/wet bar with a refrigerator, microwave, and toaster oven, a huge recreation room with a 42' Satelite TV, pool table, dart board, 12' Shuffleboard table, and card table. Walk out to a covered patio with a chargoal grill and relax in the hammock with your favorite drink. There's also a picnic table and 6' square kennel next to the patio. The master bedroom has gorgeous furniture and the king size bed is so soft and comfortable you may spend your vacation right there watching a movie on the wall-mounted 32' TV... Unless you take a few moments to relax in an oversized tub surrounded by wall candles. The second bedroom on the upper level has a semi-firm king size mattress, and the third bedroom has a new queen size mattress. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very spacious. There are gas firelogs in the upstairs and downstairs fireplaces. Sit back and enjoy a nice warm fire with your loved ones on those cool Fall and Winter evenings. Please don't put anything into these fireplaces; if you want to cook some marshmellows or any other food items, we have a huge fire pit in the backyard for your enjoyment. Linens and towels are provided as an option and the beds can be made prior to your arrival. You will need to strip the sheets and pillow cases off the beds, and wash and dry them and the towels before your departure. This is so our maid service can have the beds ready for the next guests if needed. Or, you can bring your own bed linens and towels and don't worry about doing the laundry on your last day of vacation. It does take a while to wash and dry all of the linens and towels, so if you choose to bring your own bed linens, you'll have to make the beds upon arrival. Please let me know at least 2 weeks ahead of time so I can notify the cleaning service. There's plenty to do right at the lake house or within a few hundred yards. You can walk down to the beach for a swim, use our 12' water trampoline with a slide, or take the pedal boat out with 3 others for a fun spin around the cove or do some fishing. Or, pedal yourselves over to the Marina's sandy beach for sunbathing and fun stuff to do for the kids. Children of all ages will have a blast running the 4 passenger golf cart around the yard or exploring the neighborhood...or taking the golf cart over to the Marina in the morning or afternoon for breakfast, lunch, or to use the playground... then you and yours can drive it over at night to enjoy the Tiki Bar with great food and live entertainment on weekends. The restaurant and tiki bar are seasonal; opening in mid April and closing the end of September. If you're bringing a boat we don't have a dock available on the property; but, we do have a covered slip with a lift at the Marina (slip #E24); located just around the corner from the house. This is a short 5 minute walk or use the golf cart and zip right over. There's food, beverages, gas, and even ice cream, all at this convenient location. If you need a boat, don't worry, the Marina rents those too. Our waterfront area is small, but it has a sandy and grassy beach. There's plenty of room to sit in a lounge chair and watch the kids play. There's also a fire pit near the beach so your family can enjoy an evening campfire and roast marshmellows. Our membership at the Marina offers the use of their beach that has a dock, swim platform, and swings for the kids. And yes, we love our pets and if you need to bring your four legged friends along on your vacation it's okay. Some restrictions apply. We'll try to make your vacation fun and relaxing. If there's something you need we'll do our best to make it happen! Keep checking on the calendar for availability dates; some dates are temporarily blocked pending tentative reservations. I update the availability calendar every few days!
We have a Hughes Net wi-fi system for internet access!

About the owner: My wife and I have been married for 41 years. We have 3 grown children and 6 grand children. In our younger years we raised and showed Golden Retrievers. Now..we try to get out to the lake as much as possible with the family and enjoy this fantastic lake.
Why the Owner Chose Huddleston: Smith Mountain Lake is a vacation paradise. There's nothing else in Virginia that can compare to this lake. We hope you'll enjoy your time here as much as we do.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Besides the fun you'll have on the water, you can find some one-of-a-kind places to experience. Stop by the Mayberry Drive In Diner and enjoy some great food in an old-time diner atmosphere. Then pull your car into the field out front for an outside drive in theater double-feature movie. WOW...just like back in the 50s and 60s!
Take a 30 minute drive to Burnt Chimney and taste some homemade ice cream at the Amish-run Homestead Dairy.
If you're lucky enough to be here on July 4th week, this is the best spot on the lake. The biggest fireworks on the lake happens at the end of the cove. You can sit in the back yard, go over to the Marina where the fireworks are being lauched, or take a boat out into the cove and watch a spectacular display of lights as reflections shimmer off the water. You get an added benefit of seeing the County's fireworks just over the hill on the opposite side of the lake.
