About T & K Riley

My husband and I reside in northern Virginia. We both work for the federal government. We have two boys, two dogs, and three cats (never a dull moment).

T & K Riley purchased this house in 2013

Why T & K Riley chose Huddleston

In 2010, we took our first vacation at Smith Mountain Lake. It was the BEST vacation we had. The people are nice, the lake is beautiful, it was relaxing and fun. When we had the chance to own a little slice of heaven on the lake - we did it. And we hope to share our home with your family so that you can enjoy it too!

What makes this house unique

Our home has the most amazing views from the deck. There is nothing like sitting out there, with a favorite drink, and watching the lake activities or a sunrise or sunset. The home has access to a shared dock, beach and pool. We are located on a quieter part of the lake - there isn't as much water traffic, and it is close to the dam - which affords great fishing.

Beautiful lake view!

  • 4 of 5

Helpful and courteous hostess. We had trouble finding house in the dark, GPS was a little off, but with a few texts with owner we found it. (probably wouldn't have been an issue had it not been dark). House was nice and clean. Beds were comfortable. Cable channels were great we were able to watch the Cubs games, and kids could watch something else in another room. Neighbors were very friendly and helpful! Covered boat slip was handy. Thanks for letting us stay!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, great place, great location, great lake. There was a very small ant problem, but nothing that was too alarming. You walk out of the house and the lake is right down the stairs with a private beach and a private pool. It was as relaxing as you could imagine! I rented a paddle board and a kayak from Mitchell's Marina for a few days which added to the fun. My family and I were very pleased and will definitely consider this again next year :) Kendra was a joy to work with as well. Its great that her family opens their property like this for others to enjoy.

Awesome retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything we were looking for and more! Quiet.. Clean... Relaxing cove on the lake. Small community with the friendliest, most helpful people around. The house was so spacious with an awesome view. Loved having the covered boat slip! Easy access to put in boat at marina that's walking distance away. Great fishing! Owners are exceptional! Answered all questions and took great care of all our needs! Well worth it! Can't wait to visit again!

4th Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Excellent get away weekend stay! House was clean, neat, central air, and very accommodating. Location to other amenities and events was superb. No smoking or pets allowed in this particular unit but the area for those units that do allow pets is well suited for them. Area is very hilly so be ready for a workout when walking or running. Landscaping topnotch. Local marina/bar has a super lunch and dinner menu and very hospitable. Shopping/food/cinema 20 minutes away. Highly recommend.
