About the Property

4 bedrooms (10 beds- zoned for 8 adults + 2 children under 2yrs)

If Ralph Lauren ever featured a lake house in any of his advertisements, this would be the property he would use. Almost every room features a magnificent and unfettered view across broad expanses of Smith Mountain Lake. There is a link below to additional photographs. The covered back porch faces West and is where we sit to watch the kids playing in the yard or watch the sunsets while sharing a glass of wine and listening to our favorite tunes through speakers located throughout the propery (via satellilte radio).

The lake house sits on almost 3 acres and is almost completely surrounded on three sides by the lake. It has a secluded cove for safe swimming and a large boat house with covered lounging as well. There is a grassy field for soccer play and another for lawn tennis (badminton).

Around the corner from Mitchell's Point Marina where you can rent boats and wave runners. The Marina also provides free wireless internet and has a bar and grill with excellent food.

PETS: Not permitted.

Other Amenities

  • Since we view the house as a retreat, we decided not to have the distractions of the internet and television. Instead, we have set up a home theater system with a high definition DVD player and suuround sound to play movies every night. Most guests are able to use their cell phones as a data 'hot spot' to access the internet. In an emergency, there is a free Wi-Fi hot spot (wireless internet cafe) at Mtichell's Point Marina, a very short walk from the house by land and a two minute boat ride (two coves away). Mitchell's Point Marina is a wonderful resource for renters. Mitchell's features a really cute and quaint bar and grill that is owned by one of the areas most popular caterers. He serves some of the best smoked barbecue you will ever taste! The Marina also rents boats, wave runners and water ski equipment and rafts to pull behind a boat....moreless

Car: Not Necessary

Smith Mountain Lake has wine festivals, art festivals, flea markets and the like, throughout the year. Check online for those activities. The lake is famous for its bass fishing, and annually hosts a bass fishing tournament (hosted and filmed by ESPN sports network). The National D-Day Memorial, designed by Dickson Architects and Associates is in Bedford County, the county where this lake house is located. The Memorial exists in tribute to the valor, fidelity, and sacrifice of the Allied Forces on D-Day, 6 June 1944. The United States Congress warranted the establishment of the Memorial at Bedford, Virginia, the community suffering the country’s severest per capita losses on D-Day.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am an attorney practicing law in both Virginia and Florida. My wife stopped working as an investment money manager (she has a CFA and MBA) to help raise our twin boys, now teenagers. Our family loves the water so, when we left Florida ten years ago we were excited to find this wonderful lake house permitting us to spend large amounts of quality time together as a family. The whole family enjoys skiing, wake boarding and boating. Many afternoons we spend floating in the cove just off our boat house spending time with the boys - when they aren't wrestling with each other and throwing each other into the lake from our floating trampoline - king of the mountain style.

Why the Owner Chose Huddleston, VA, USA:
We love Huddleston and being on the Bedford side of the lake. Our lake house is located on a very wide part of the Craddock Creek part of the lake and the water quality is much clearer than the more northern part of the lake. That is because by the time the various streams and rivers join and get down to our part of the lake, all of the silt in the water has settled- usually by the time it goes through the winding bends just northwest of our part of the lake. We also love being right around the corner from a great marina- Mitchell's Point Marina. It makes it easy to get gas for the boat and wave runner and means we are close to a nice bar and grill and ice cream for the kids. On the weekends, Mitchell's often has live entertainment in the form of local bands. By boat, we are about three minutes away. By car, we are about one half mile away from Mitchell's point. We are also close - by water- to Mariner's Landing, a very nice hotel and golfing destination with great dining as well.
