About David Horst
30 years ago, I found this beautiful piece of Virginia and built a vacation home for my family. We spent nearly every weekend in the summer enjoying the lake where my kids learned to water ski and my family and friends had fun boating, fishing, jet skiing, tubing. We have had many family and friends gatherings that have given us amazing memories. After retirement, my wife and I relocated to the lake full time in a new house. I began my search for the perfect lake house to rent to people like you to make your own memories here. And so after two years of search, I believe this house offers everything families and friends will need. I want to make your vacation here as wonderful as my memories.
David Horst purchased this House in 2015
Why David Horst chose Huddleston
If you haven't been to Smith Mountain Lake in the Blue Ridge Mountains, you are in for a treat. With 500 miles of shoreline and over 20,000 acres, the lake is formed by the convergence of the Roanoke and Blackwater Rivers with a hydroelectric dam controlling water flow. Blue green clear water is home to striped bass, large mouth and small mouth bass, crappie, blue gills, cat fish and lake trout for the fisherman Or perhaps you just want to soak up the sun on the dock or on a raft. Or just read a book on the deck. Whatever your pleasure, you will surely find it here at 'Tranquility Bay'.
What makes this House unique
The gentle slope to the water, the long winding driveway into the peaceful tranquility of seclusion. The views from nearly every room, deck, patio, and dock are wonderful. The sunsets equally as good. Spending 30 years here has taught me that being in a wide water cove is the best of both worlds......no wakes from boats speeding by on the main channel and wonderful views.

Perfect getaway in the spring.
We had a wonderful stay at tranquility bay. The house was beautiful and stocked with just about everything you need. The view from the main deck was absolutely perfect. We had breakfast and dinner out on the deck everyday. I was able to rent a pontoon boat from a local company that delivered right to the deck hassel free. The owner of the property was great he answered all the question we had fast and clear. Looking forward to staying there again in a the future.
Place was immaculate upon arrival. Outstanding views, especially the sunset.
Couldn't have asked for a better place. It was nicw to haveliinens and towels provided..we are from a resort community where the renter is required to bring their own. Beds were very comfortable. Plenty of space. We stayed over the the off seasin, but plan to return during the summer months.
Beautiful sunsets, well appointed house
Our family Thanksgiving needed a central location from Charlotte, Richmond, and Gloucester and this was it. Very comfortable home with plenty of activity in the game room a nice gas fireplace and well equipped kitchen. Good time had by all. Hope to return!
Thanks, Gaylord!! Always a pleasure to provide a place for families to make memories.
All the Best,
Fantastic Lakefront Vacation Home
We just got back last week from our one week stay at Tranquility Bay. This is a lovely vacation rental home. The owners have put so much care into making this a beautiful and relaxing vacation home. The kitchen is extremely well stocked, the bedrooms are spacious and the beds are oh so comfortable, the master bathroom is wonderful, and the pool table and downstairs recreation area are fantastic as well. The location is so peaceful and and even though the weather didn't cooperate most days for us to enjoy the lake, the home provided a great selection of movies and books too. We did get to fish from the dock and I caught a really nice small mouth bass (catch & release that is). We spent a lot of time on the deck just relaxing, enjoying a glass of wine and watching it rain. I highly recommend this wonderful home to anyone looking for a first rate vacation home experience at SML!
Thank so much JoAnne!! We hope you will come back next year when the weather is better

Property was very clean & had everything you need to have a nice relaxing, but fun vacation.
Our stay was great at this property. The owners have provided everything you need & if you find you need something they are very quick to get it to you. The sunsets are beautiful & seeing the deer eating in the front yard was an added treat.
Thanks David & Mary Beth for sharing your beautiful property to those of us who love to come to SML!
