Huddleston condo description
Linger over morning coffee from the master bedroom balcony overlooking the lake; enjoy the sunset from the balcony off the living area, both provide glimpses of (and breezes from) Smith Mountain Lake. Two levels of comfort provide both space and privacy in this completely redesigned and renovated getaway. This lake-side jewel offers an abundance of opportunities for fun and relaxation during every season. The updated kitchen appliances make cooking a pleasure. New counter tops add a sleek finish to the kitchen where you can cook your own catch of the day or prepare an appetizer before enjoying a night out at one of the nearby restaurants. The full bath downstairs includes a jetted tub for a luxurious soak and the newly constructed half bath upstairs provides convenience off the master bedroom and quaint open loft area. Customized pocket door allows maximum privacy upstairs in the master bedroom where couples can enjoy their own view of the lake from the private deck off the bedroom.

- Located in a quaint, quiet setting with convenient access to food, music and recreational activities all within a short distance. Outdoor enthusiasts will have a difficult time deciding which water sport to pursue first-kayaking, boating, fishing or jet skiing opportunities are literally right around the corner. If you prefer to appreciate the beauty of the lake from dry land, Smith Mountain Lake State Park is just 2 miles away and offers visitors limitless options for adults and children. Miles of well-kept, wooded trails allow hikers to soak in the natural beauty that surrounds the lake. Guests hoping for less exertion during their stay can take a leisurely walk to the well-maintained pool area overlooking the shoreline for a prime tanning opportunity or a picnic lunch at the gazebo. Make new friends at the Tiki Bar, a two minute stroll from your living room. Music (seasonal) and a full bar provide backdrop to intimate conversations in the colorful Adirondack chairs next to the water's edge or a lively game of corn hole on the lawn, depending on what you are in the mood for....moreless

This sweet condo was the perfect getaway for our Thanksgiving weekend. The kitchen was equipped perfectly for me to prepare a small meal for the two of us! The unit is also situated where it was easy to take our little dachshund outside. Our only problem was not being savvy enough to operate the t.v. remote, for dish network! We hope to return sometime during the warmer seasons!

A Lovely Lakeside Weekend
A Lovely Lakeside Weekend
My friend and I met at this condo on Friday and stayed through Sunday. It turned out to be a perfect location as there was a Dragon Boat Festival just up the road on Saturday. We also found ourselves close to many wineries and were able to enjoy several. The closeness of Smith Mountain Lake Park was also great as we were able to wander many of their hiking trails. The deck overlooking the water is perfect for morning coffee and evening drinks. The owner was extremely accommodating to our arrival and departure times since the unit wasn't rented on either end so we were able to enjoy a leisurely Sunday morning. All in all no complaints, though the unit is small and I wouldn't see it working very well for more than 3 people.

My wife and I could not have been more pleased with our visit to this awesome jewel at SML. It was our first time staying at this location and my wife is already planning a week for next summer. We loved it! Lea was very accommodating and went the extra mile to make sure we were happy with everything. The condo was nicely furnished with a fabulous kitchen. It was just perfect for our breakfast and dinners on the deck. We especially enjoyed the master bedroom overlooking the lake and the great sunset views from our own private deck upstairs. The jacuzzi tub was nice and half bath upstairs so convenient. We will definitely be coming back and hope to sneak in two weeks here next year.

Owner response: I am so pleased to hear your family enjoyed your stay at our condo. We always enjoy knowing that guests are happy with their accommodations, especially the amenities of a jacuzzi tub, two decks and the evening sunsets that are breathtaking. Please come again and make our home your home for another visit soon.
Nice location, upper level condo with two decks overlooking a lake cove and marina. The kitchen is small, but fairly new. There is no dishwasher. There is only one pot, but some dishware and silverware are available. The master bedroom is on the 2nd level along with a half bath. A small full bath is on the 1st level. There are lots of marks on the walls on the 2nd level and it is in need of painting. It looks like the owner had started renovating the 1st floor, but has not done much to the 2nd floor. The 1st floor furnishings were nice and there were many artful touches throughout the condo. The layout of the condo was not convenient for us. We enjoyed our time at Smith Mountain Lake and would return, but would not stay at this condo.

Owner response: Since remodeling the second floor of our condo that was previously an open cathedral floor plan, it has added the opportunity for the addition of a half bath and open loft for additional guests adjacent to the master bedroom. As a result of these additions, the changes has created a unique floor plan with a bath and a half that does not exist in any of the other units with similar square footage. Although, there were comprises when updating the newly remodeled kitchen when we had to sacrifice room for a dishwasher. Thank you for making us aware of the marks on the walls on the second floor. It has been a busy season. We will be addressing maintenance and a fresh coat of paint during the winter months before the spring guests arrive.
We had a great stay at your condo. The view over the lake is just beautiful. The condo was clean and well maintained. We hope to rent the condo again in the future.

Owner response: We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and especially the quiet time for enjoying the amenities of two balconies. Thank you for your comments on the decor and cleanliness, too. We put much thought into the recent renovations and how we could provide the most amenities and convenience of a half bath upstairs and adding the loft for more guests. Thank you for choosing our location. We look forward to your visit again soon.
Our condo at SML was just perfect, top of the line all the way. The owner has added all the extras to make you feel at home. Over looking the beautiful lake and mountains, the views are beautiful and breath taking. We found the condo to be very peaceful and relaxing. Love this unit, thanks for sharing. Will be back next year.,

Owner response: Happy to hear you enjoyed the condo and the beautiful season of FALL!! The sunsets and cool evenings with a nice jacuzzi soak makes for a great wind down in the evening. The peaceful mornings and quiet evenings has been a favorite time for us. The pool side morning coffee and evening dinner on our deck for lovely gatherings has been a favorite, too. Hope to have you back again soon. Thank you for choosing our location.
Lovley in the summer AND winter!
Lovley in the summer AND winter!
I have had the good fortune to stay at this condo during two season - both delightful. The summertime stay was great because I am an outdoor enthusiast - LOVED the pool and availability to boat/jet ski rentals. The Tiki Bar is a favorite because, let's face it, you can walk to it - no designated driver necessary. Wintertime brought its own advantages. I stayed during one of the coldest weekends of the season and was snug and warm in this beautifully appointed unit. After a short hike in the woods at the park nearby, I was happy to do my work undisturbed in the afternoon and evening. I have rented condos at the beach and other places where the units are furnished with the owner's cast-offs - mismatched furniture they no longer wanted, worn bedding, and threadbare sofas. This condo, much to my surprise, was thoughtfully appointed with furnishings obviously chosen specifically for this unit and setting. I can't say enough good things about this location and lodging. Wish I could go more often!

Owner response: It's nice to know you had the experience of a fall and winter stay, which is one of our favorite times of year at the lake. When choosing furnishings and decor we really wanted to make it feel like home and we hope your experience was the same. Nice, cozy and like home. Thank you for choosing our condo for your visits during both seasons. It really is a nice place to visit anytime of the year.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I currently live in Greensboro, North Carolina. Convenient to Smith Mountain Lake in just a two hour drive.
Why the Owner Chose Huddleston:
I was a frequent visitor to Smith Mountain Lake for nearly ten years before purchasing this property. Living in Greensboro ( while it's not a big city), I have always desired a getaway from the hassle of the city and a place for relaxation, quiet reading and opportunity for recreational activities I have long enjoyed. I stumbled upon Belview Bay while jet skiing one summer day and have called it home for nearly 10 years.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The view, gorgeous sunsets and quiet, small community setting. I have often described this property as a 'jewel in the rough' because of it's out of the heavy traffic location, but yet it's convenience to local amenities and attractions. Come and enjoy the best of both worlds..
