Located at the end of a long cul-de-sac, the driveway provides lots of on-site parking. The yard is flat so you can walk directly out to the water and large dock. The beautiful cove is nearly a quarter mile across and quickly opens out toward Smith Mountain and to even larger parts of the lake near channel marker C5. We find this perfect for skiing or fishing right out in front of the house protected from the winds that sometimes occur on the larger parts of the lake. Back again to the driveway, it is just a few stairs up to the covered entryway and deck that wraps around three sides of the house. From the entryway you enter the house between the kitchen and the greatroom. Toward the right is a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, electric range and oven, microwave, lots of counter space for food preparation and buffet style serving as well as stools for informal breakfast or snacking. Past the kitchen to the right is a large bedroom we call the 'bunkhouse' with two bunk beds, the lower bunk of each converting to a futon couch when desired. Beyond the kitchen to the left is the greatroom and a room we call the “lakeroom”, a large room on the lake side of the house, full of windows and light. Together, the greatroom, kitchen and lakeroom create a large open space, one of the things that we love so much about the house. From the lakeroom you can go back out onto the lakeside deck overlooking the water and dock or you can continue through the lakeroom and to the right into the sitting room that adjoins the master bedroom. Large windows in the setting room overlook again the deck, water and dock. The large master bedroom has its own full bath, an additional in-room vanity and a walk-in closet. From the master bedroom you cross the hallway toward the left to the guest bedroom or toward the right to a large full bathroom. Both the master and guest bedrooms have sliding doors leading outside again onto the deck. The hallway bathroom has a skylight. From this hallway you reenter the greatroom. Both greatroom and lakeroom have gas fireplaces. In the greatroom is a full wrap around couch system surrounding the TV. There are two dining tables one seating 8 and the other seating 4 comfortably. There are numerous nooks with futons or chairs for lounging. There is a nook off the kitchen, one between the greatroom and lakeroom and one, already mentioned, in the setting room adjoining the master bedroom.
Keywords: Open greatroom, sunroom and kitchen, large deck surrounding the house, lots of parking, boat lift for renters, great swimming areas and deep water off the dock.

About the owner: We (Fran and Shauna) live in Northern Virginia. Our two older children are married, our two younger children are still in college. We have four grandchildren and more to come, we hope. The family pet is a border collie, collie mix named Hobbes (like in the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes). Our younger son’s name is Colin, so we have our own variant of the comic strip we call Colin and Hobbes. Professionally I am a systems engineer and Shauna is a full-time homemaker.
Why the Owner Chose Huddleston, VA, USA:
I grew up in the Finger Lakes Region of NY State. When we found Smith Mountain Lake and this house I knew I had found a place where I could share with my kids much of the wonder I had as a kid growing up near a large lake. Each year we hold a family reuinon here for both sides of our family. The house, the lake and the surrounding places of interest have accomodated us all without a hitch for several days at a time.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Many mornings I start my day at dawn on the party deck, watching the rising sun melt away the morning mist. Shauna's favorite time is watching the sunset from the same place. The calm waters of the morning and evening make perfect bookends for the waves churned up by the boating, canoeing, sailing and swimming we do in between. I'm not a fisherman but many of my family and neighbors are. SML is a tournament bass lake and has been featured on TV and in movies. Being out on a peninsula as we are, we are nearly surrounded by water and our connection to land is occupied by a state park and a resort and golf course.
