- Smith Mountain lake is known as the 'Jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains' and is truly just that with 20,000 acres of beautiful shoreline, majestic homes and the beautiful Smith mountain. There is no better lake in the mid-atlantic region for boating, fishing, skiing, canoeing and kayaking. Within walking distance of our home is a marina with a lovely lake view restaurant and power boat, house boat and jet ski rentals. There are several well known fishing tournaments on the lake and this year a record citation striper (45 pounds) was caught right around the corner from our home. We have some of the best catfish and bass fishing right off our dock and the ability to catch your own live bait right there as well. The home is located within an hour of Roanoke and it's many attractions. Lots of restaurants can be found there as well as a zoo, and plenty of shopping. Roanoke boasts a wonderful outdoor water park, 'splash valley' that is very affordable. Lynchburg is also a short distance of 45 minutes away and has year round 'snow skiing, tubing and snow boarding' at Liberty Mountain snowflex centre.Just about every restaurant can be found in Lynchburg as well as more great shopping and of course the infamous Liberty University and Thomas Road Baptist church. Only 40 minutes away is Bedford, a lovely bedroom community that boasts antiquing, quaint restaurants and D-Day memorial. Also nearby is horseback riding, wineries, the blue ridge parkway and the wonderful Peaks of Otter park with it's many hiking trails. The hike up to the top of the peaks is great exercise and the view is like none other! Our daughter recently came across a black bear and her 2 cubs on her hike there. Mariner's landing which is 10 minutes away has an award winning 18 hole golf course! Maybe one of the greatest things to do is to explore one of the many islands on our lake. Most of them have campfire rings...so take your hot dogs and s'more fixings and make a campfire on the islands with the ample fallen wood. Swimming in the nearby mountain inlets is very private and fun as well. The list goes on and on with things to do in the area....moreless

Very nice lake vacation
Very nice lake vacation
Just recently returned from our annual SML vacation. While this well-maintained home is not directly on the water, it is only a short walk away from the beautiful lake and peaceful surroundings. The home is as described - warm, inviting with a lot of nice, personal touches. The owners quickly answer any and all questions and I can tell they care deeply about their home. If you are searching for an affordable lake vacation, look no further!

Wonderful and beautifully appointed lake house with all the ammenties!
We so enjoyed our stay at Tim and Pam's beautiful lake house! The size and rooms made it very comfortable for family members to join us and spend the night. The house was clean and livable. We especially loved the view off the deck, and enjoyed eating our meals in the dining area or grilling on the deck with a view of the lake. The lake is so beautiful at this location and gave us wonderful times of swimming, fishing, and boat activity. We enjoyed the fact that their boat slip is in a cove which provided a wonderful calm from the larger open areas on the lake. The location was quiet and the other guests and residents were friendly and polite. We will definitely book another week in the future!

The Hahn's home is a beautiful, clean, and a comfortable place to relax for a vacation at SML. The community pool is crystal clean and so private. When we were there, we were the only three people in the pool at the time. It was so fun to have family time at the kitchen table overlooking lake views. The kids loved the pool table and being so close to the lake. I would highly recommend this home to a family or couple who want to be close to the lake, have a clean and cozy place to stay, and have easy access to the dock. The marina is right around the corner, boat rentals available, and a nice outside/inside dining area at the marina. Miss SML already!

Memorial Day Weekend 2013 - AWESOME!
Memorial Day Weekend 2013 - AWESOME!
A++!! My husband and I made a last minute decision on going to Smith Mountain Lake for Memorial Day weekend. We came across this PERFECT lake home and jumped at the chance to rent it. The reservation was secure, and painless. The pictures accurately represent the home, and the owners have made this lake home a perfect retreat for anything you are looking for! Great family home, but also a perfect getaway for just the two of you. When we got to the home, it was very clean, with all of the comforts of home. If you are like us, getting away from the city life and to be surrounded by trees (and this year, the chorus of cicadas:), the lake, and wonderful neighbors in this community of Valley Mills was a real treat for us. The view of the lake from the back deck is great, and we were able to see one of the most beautiful sunsets from the dock which is super convenient to walk down to. We didn't fish, or do any boating, but if those are just a couple of things you are looking for, this is definitely the place for you! You can tell that the owners have put alot of effort into making your stay a comfortable one with all of the conveniences you would need for a wonderful vacation. Thank you very much Pam and Tim, we will definitely be back!

This property is a must stay--clean, spacious, and a great value. I love the master bedroom and bath! The kids love the pool table downstairs. This is the second time we have stayed at this property, and we will definitely come again.

Owner response: Martha and family, It was such a pleasure to have your family enjoy our lake house again! We love the master bedroom too and glad you feel the same way. So great your family had a lovely time! Thanks for leaving our home in such great condition too. Your family is always welcome!
This is a very nice home for the price and the decor is warm and inviting. We had a wonderful time on the lake even in bad weather. The dock is a "PLUS". Tim was very helpful with the lake map and making sure that we had everything we needed. Thanks for the movie,very thoughtful. The location is great. The owners have taken great thought into providing for the home and guests. We are hoping to return at a different season. The beds are very comfortable. We highly recommend this home.

A five star for sure!! So affordable!
"Thank you for the warm welcome we received upon arrival, the cookies were as good as they smelled. We are enjoying all the attention to detail that you have given your home. I love your tea cup collection and all the beautiful wood work on the furniture in the downstairs bedroom. Each room is so uplifting as you walk through them. Thanks for a well equipped kitchen and a fun dining area. The dock is great and having the pool in between boat activity is great! We will go on line and for sure rate this "lake house" 5 STARS!!! We also enjoy that this is a non-smoking home and for keeping the price affordable. Thanks again for this blessing to all of us this week!!

FIVE STARS!!! Best kept home we have rented!
"We have a fantastic week here at SML, and at your home! This was our 7th year at the lake, but this was BY FAR the best kept home that we have rented! BEAUTIFUL! Our children, ages 10,8 and 5 enjoyed the dock and caught a catfish and striper right there! The beach will leave cherished memories of "pies" and "soups" and of course, we are taking home a fine collection of shells! Thank you so much for accommodating our stay with professionalism and hospitality! We hope to be back at your home next summer! Thanks again! -C.S.

About the owner: My wife and I are childhood sweethearts and have literally lived all around the US and in Haiti as missionaries. I was a missionary pilot and now a flight school owner. Aerial tours could be arranged if I knew ahead of time. My wife is an RN and the love of my life! She is very careful to make sure the home is cleaned properly. Smith Mountain lake is one of the most beautiful places we have ever lived! We have often thought we would love to offer someone else this place to enjoy so that they can appreciate some of the beauty God has created in Virginia. We love entertaining,we adore our family of 4 kids and now 6 grandkids and most of all we love our creator, God! He is the reason we live!
Why the Owner Chose Huddleston:
It has always been our dream to own property on a beautiful lake. Both of us grew up vacationing on lakes, but the beauty of Canada was our favorite.... until we moved to Virginia. We can truly say that Smith Mountain lake has ALL and more that Canada ever had! The water temperature is so perfect and it is so clean that we hate getting out. The fishing is every bit as good if not better. We have caught up to 6 pound bass right off our dock and so have our guests! The house is quite large and has great living space as well as bedrooms. The neighborhood has such great amenities for the little ones; a great pool, beach and the lake is only about 300 feet from the house. We have done a lot to it to fix it up so that others will feel the 'AHHH' factor as they come in and relax. We have tried to put all the finishing touches in it that we would want when we go on vacation.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
What we loved about our home are all the amenities that come with this lake front community. There is a nice beach for the little ones and a very crystal clean pool right up the street. For those who love swimming in the lake, this part of the lake has the cleanest water anywhere and the fishing is great! We have caught many bass and catfish right off our dock. If you are a knowledgable fisherman, there are lots of great striper and bass just waiting to be caught. The property comes with guest dock if you bring your own boat or rent one during the week. The dock area beside our boat is huge and a great place to swim off of because it is 25 feet deep there. Boat and jet ski rentals are just a walk around the corner at Mitchell's point marina. There is also a restaurant there that is quite good.
