Cabins 1 and 2 are in a row of ten that rim the shore of a secluded cove on Smith Mountain Lake. The Cabin 1 is on the end, making it one of the most private of all. There are wilderness views of undeveloped forest and the lake, as well as Smith Mountain. The cabin is located on Witcher Creek, which is a no wake area. This feature makes swimming very safe, and a sense of peacefulness prevails that you will not find in other areas of the lake that experience more boat traffic. A private deep-water dock is shared by the two cabins, offering easy access for boating, swimming and sunbathing. Both cabins are two-bedroom, one-bath lakefront homes, with solid cedar construction, open-beam ceilings and hardwood floors. Silver Bay View Cottages are ideal for reunions. We can accommodate up to 24 people between four properties that include the Main House, the Cedar Cabin and Cabins 1 and 2. Be sure and check out these other properties as well.
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.

Why Jim Erler, Manager LakeAway Vacation Rentals chose Huddleston
Cabin 1 was the first of the Silver Bay View properties and was the inspiration for our name. While smaller than the Point View properties, it remains a very special place for a cozy escape.
What makes this Cabin unique
Cabin 1 is at the Bay View location and offers a private setting overlooking the Silver Bay portion of Smith Mountain Lake with Smith Mountain above it.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Toasty cabin with wonderful view of the lake!
Perfect location on the lake
Not only was the property in a great place, the owner was very accommodating. We chose this cabin with a day notice . Cabin was very clean, well equipped for cooking, and with a dock you can see from back deck which we fished from 80% of our time there. We would definitely rent this property again.
I was very pleased with the stay at this cabin. The only concern was the problem of not being able to connect to WIFI; however, the property owner was very accommodating to call while he was on a personal vacation to try to solve the problem.
Very private and an excellent get away.
A Fantastic Time !
We had a wonderful time here at Smith Mountain Lake. This was our first time here and it is truly unbelievable! 1 week of beautiful views tucked back in the cove. We will be back. We watched the deer feed between the cabin and dock. What a sight!
It was very nice to have a dock for our boat and not have to take the boat out each day.
Take time to visit the visitors center at the dam as this is what makes Smith Mountain Lake.
The lake is so inspiring to view as the sunsets from the boat.
It is fairly isolated . It has a great deck and view. Dish TV and secure wi-fi. Well furnished
We stay there quite a bit. Always enjoy it.
Quiet Peaceful stay made it feel like a small country getaway
We stayed in cabin 1. Cozy Rustic 2 bedroom cabin on the lake. No fuss reservation, and the natural beauty of the area was refreshing. I would gladly stay there again.
Grand and spectacular views of the lake and Smith Mountain in a quiet, private setting populated with beautiful Loblolly pines and sweeping lawns. Private deep-water dock offers easy access for boating, swimming, sunbathing and world class fishing.
The house is located just inside of Witcher Creek, one of the best fishing areas on the lake. The Cabin sleeps 4 and is one of the four Silver Bay View Cottages that comfortably accommodate up to 24 people.
