About The Owner

After enjoying Smith Mountain Lake for the last 20 years, with friends and family, we finally decided to build the home that would create cherished memories for our family.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Huddleston

In 2006 we began the task of finding a location where we could build not just a house at the lake, but a home where we could also build cherished family memories for our family, friends and other families like ours that may choose to rent our lake home. After many days of searching by boat, we felt we had found what was perfect for our family. Since the lot had such a gradual slope, our young children could easily toddle into the water or simply play sitting at the edge attended by a loving parent. The refreshing late afternoon breeze, gradually sloping lot, sandy beach, and quiet cozy swimming hole were just what we were looking for. The proximity to the Bedford County State Park, just 3 miles away was another big perk for our family. The State Park, has become a great place to explore nature with plentiful hiking & biking trails, and is also the the location of the SML Triathalon, Fall Festival and July 4th Fireworks launch. We also have enjoyed exploring the The SML Damn (check web for program times), The Lynchburg Children's Museum and the Pisgah National Forest. By water the house is located betweeen bouys R-11 and R-12 on the north side of the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Another fantastic family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year in this home and I can go on and on about how much we love our time here. This home has been perfect for our growing family - myself and my husband, two sons and their wives and 4 young grandchildren. The sloping beach is a huge must when you've got little ones. The home has easily and comfortably accommodated us all. The kids had a great time kayaking and we brought a jet ski down and tooled around the lake. It's a week that we all look forward to each year, and if Joe will have us back each year, I think we've found our spot.

I need also to mention the attentiveness of Joe, the owner. Anytime I texted him with questions or concerns, he responded immediately and I would say went above and beyond in terms of accommodating us. My son is an owner, as well, and has had nothing but good things to say about this home and the responsiveness of the owners.

Highly highly recommend.

First time visitors to SML

  • 4 of 5

My family couldn’t have asked for a better location to spend our first visit to SML. The lake house was everything we needed; location to the lake was the best you could get! In spite of the rain we managed to enjoy the lake and local activities. Sitting under the covered deck during a hard rain was indeed enjoyable. Thanks to Joe (the owner) for making the whole experience stress free.

Wonderful Lake Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time at the lake house and hope to return again. Joe was incredibly accommodating and responsive and the house is even better than the photos depict. We had plenty of room for our family of eight to stay without feeling cramped; the basement was such a bonus! We loved hanging out on the dock, sitting by the fire pit, and meeting wonderful neighbors. This is a stay-again place!

Family Birthday Celebration

Absolutely loved this house, worked perfectly for our big family gathering. The owner was wonderful to work with and can't say enough nice things about this house and the owner. It was located perfectly, very close to the SML state park on a quiet cove.
