About the Property

Sleeps 10, 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, private dock. Ideal for Family Reunions

The Main House at Silver Bay View Cottages offers grand and spectacular views of the lake and Smith Mountain in a quiet, private setting populated with beautiful Loblolly pines and sweeping lawns.

A private deep-water dock offers easy access for boating, swimming and sunbathing. The house is located on a point that marks the entry to Witcher Creek, one of the best fishing areas on the lake. The Main House is a large, modern home that can comfortably accommodate 10 people.

Two large public rooms and a large deck are designed for entertaining, making it the ideal gathering place for up to 24 people staying in the Silver Bay View Cottages properties. See listings for Cedar Cabin and Cabins 1 and 2.

Swimming: There is nothing more enjoyable than to stretch out on the dock with a good book, and then dive into the clear, warm water for a refreshing swim. The lake is one of the cleanest in the East Coast, and as you swim or relax, you are looking across to undeveloped wilderness.

Boating: There may be no better lake in the Mid-Atlantic region for boating. The 20,000 acres of Smith Mountain Lake and its 40-mile length make it a perfect place for water skiing, speed boating, canoeing, kayaking or sailing. Power boats and wave runners can be rented at several locations on the lake, including: Bridgewater Plaza Marina (Boats can also be picked up at the State Park), Parrot Cove (Parrot Cove also rents Kayaks), Parkway Marina (formerly knows as Saunders Marina), Mitchell's Point Marina or Virgil Naff Sea Doo (wave runners only).

The closest boat launch and boat rental is Mitchell's Point Marina.

Fishing: Fishing opportunities at Silver Bay View Cottages are unbelievable. The properties are located on Witcher Creek where the stripers spawn every spring. The lake is regularly stocked with game fish, and contains striped bass, large and small mouth bass, muskies, northern pike, and an assortment of small game fish. Fishing guides are available to introduce you to the lake, including: Captain Bert's Fishin' Charters, Mike's Striper Guide Service, Rockfish Adventures.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2002

About: Jim and Catriona Erler have been managing Silver Bay View Cottages since 1993. Helping visitors find the best way to enjoy the lake or helping them organize a great family reunion is what makes this business so enjoyable. When not helping visitors, Jim designs Arts & Crafts houses and Catriona is a garden photographer and author. She has written and provided photos for eight books and also writes for a local magazine on Smith Mountain Lake.

Why Huddleston, VA, USA:
We grew up in Southern California, vacationing on a lake in the nearby mountains. When we moved east, we searched for a lake with the same feel, and found that the eastern end of Smith Mountain Lake, with the mountains a trees, was just the right spot.
