Huddleston cottage description

This cabin is a Family Treasure. Built as the original vacation cabin on Island Lane, road created by my Dad (retired professor from UVA) some forty years ago. Great Smith Mountain Lake location! Right on the main channel adjacent to lake marker R-8 where Roanoke and Blackwater meet. Expansive lake view with exquisite sunsets are yours for the taking. Lake vews from every window, and just a few steps below will take you to a private stationary dock, where boats can be parked. A few steps up off the upper deck will lead you to perfect views of 4th of July fireworks from Saunders Parkway Marina.

                  Location

                  Just a few steps down from the cottage deck takes you to a private stationary dock where you can relax in the sun or enjoy clean fresh water for swimming. Dine in the evening on the outside deck viewing the sunset. Vacationers come from all over to fish where striper, bass, crappies and bluegills abound. Marinas abound where you can rent jet skies, motor and pontoon boats. The Smith Mountain Lake State park offers a beach, hiking trails, kayak rentals and daily planned activities for children. The Booker T. Washington National Monument as well as the Smith Mountain Lake dam all makes for a fun trip or just cruise on the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway.

                   

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: I am a musician and educator. The lake cottage provided to me a lot of special solace to practice and develope my musicianship on piano, violin, mandolin. Plus, I love swimming!

                  Why the Owner Chose Huddleston:
                  My father spotted Smith Mountain Lake 40 years ago and bought a largish track of land. In fact, he put the road on this peninsula. Several family homes were built and some lots sold. This cottage property was a gift from my father which was my home for 16 years. To eliminate a daily commute to work, I moved to town nearby, and created a beautiful short-term lake rental to share.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Amazing, breathtaking views of the Lake, brightness and light, peacefulness, serenity and privacy (during the week), lake liveliness on the summer weekends!
