About Celeste Bailey

Born in Hilo, Hawaii, water was always peaceful to me, but the sand and salt became very unappealing when we had children. LAKE LIFE gave me the water, amazing sunsets and adventure without the salt and sand.

Celeste Bailey purchased this condo in 2003

Why Celeste Bailey chose Huddleston

We have always loved vacationing at SML. There is plenty to do in the area since the lake is nestled between mountains, national and state parks and wineries.

What makes this condo unique

Our favorite things to do are rent a pontoon boat and jet ski, pack a picnic lunch and cruise the lake. We love going to The Rope Swing or finding quiet coves to swim. There's just something about the taste of the pizza at the Pizza Pub or a Peach Sangria at Mexico Viejo (Bridgewater and Crazy Horse Marinas) at Bridgewater or maybe it's just the boat ride and working up the appetite. We love going to the sand beach at the state park to get a just enough sand in our toes.. Walking the wooded trails with our dogs is a plus too. Our teenagers hang out at the put-in area below at the marina. They swim there and jump off the dock. A half mile walk toward Parkway Marina (turn right at the exit) offers a different view of the lake and is a great place for really pretty pictures and weddings! Wineries abound in the area. Our favorite is the Peaks of Otter Winery.

The condo is beautiful! So much natural light that comes through the windows! Amazing view of SML.

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I visited for a girl’s trip, and this condo did not disappoint! There was plenty of space for the six of us when we wanted to crash after a day on the lake. It felt like home for the weekend. Celeste was readily available whenever we had a question or concern. We plan on making this a yearly trip. Great overall experience!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your comments for future guests. Yes, if climbing stairs is tough, the walk to the second floor should be considered, but the height of the property is what makes the view and setting so glorious. So happy you had a peaceful stay.

Beautiful Location; Wonderful Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

My family and I booked this rental as a last minute whim kind of vacation. We took a chance and started looking at lakes. We were very fortunate to find this listing. It is a relatively large corner condo unit. There are two bedrooms. The master has a queen/king size bed and the other has a bunk bed with a full size bed on the lower level and a twin up top. There is also a small loft with a twin size trundle bed and was the perfect space for my two daughters. There are cable-connected TV's in every bedrooms and the living room. We were able to cook meals without needing anything. The condo was very clean and well furnished. All appliances worked and nothing seems to be needing repair. The condo well maintained and cared for. It didn't feel like "just another rental". Our small dog loved being able to join the family on vacation this year.

Now for the sights. This is a corner unit with lots of windows. You could easily see the sunset every night. The condo sits on a quiet cove, in a no wake zone. There is a dock at the bottom of the hill. This dock is not owned by the condo association, but instead is owned by Parkway Marina which is about 1/2 mile down the road. With their permission you could park your boat there, fish, or on/off load a rental boat.

I can't express how beautiful this lake is. It was truly a pleasure to sit out on the deck and enjoy the morning calm before venturing out for a day on the lake. There was plenty of wildlife to see and the State Park is just down the road if you want a beach, playground, boat launch, or hiking trails. We rented a boat for one day from Parkway Marina and that was the highlight of the trip.

There were a few minor annoyances, if you could even call them that. The full-time residents don't really care for the renters. The really just ignore you, but the small comments at the pool or the side-bar conversations gave me the feeling they really didn't appreciate us being there. I also noticed that there are a lot of rules posted and I love rules, but I got the feeling they were only there for the rental folks, as the full-timers didn't really follow them. An example would be pets in the pool area. There is no WiFi, but that's clearly stated, so we understood and adjusted. The owner was wonderful. She was extremely helpful and went above and beyond to make sure we had a terrific stay. I would highly recommend this condo and will definitely be looking to stay here again.
