About the Property

5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10, Huddleston

Journeys End brings you into your own private coveside paradise. Privacy surrounds you on every side of this magnificent Tudor waterfront property. Our home offers the perfect place for the luxury lake experience. You won't be looking at other homes but instead over two acres of pristine woods and an expansive 300 foot waterfront area with a huge gentle sloping lawn and gorgeous views of the lake from both the deck and dock area. You will feel like you have your own private park. The swimming area is ideal because it is protected from boat traffic and you can float to your hearts desire without floating away. Our water front has a great floating dock and stationary dock with all Trex, and a sandy beach area. When you are ready to put your feet up you can sit in the huge hot tub, or choose one of 3 decks, or the lakeside dock area. Enjoy exploring the lake as you cruise the shoreline in our three complimentary kayaks and new paddleboard. At night enjoy our complimentary firewood and the lakeside fire pit area to roast your marshmallows. Every detail has been taken care of, and the quality of the home, appliances, and furnishings are unmatched. The expansive kitchen is fully equipped and your family can enjoy meals together around the large oak table with seating for ten. Granite countertops and high end large and small appliances are available for you to use. Watch movies together in the expansive great room with cathedral ceilings which can seat ten plus people. Children will enjoy the state of the art game room which can be found downstairs next to the children's bedroom. They will enjoy the ultimate gaming experience as they sit in surround sound gaming chairs to play Playstation 3 or watch DVD's. Battle it out as you enjoy playing a family tournament on the air hockey or foosball table. You will find high speed internet and Wi-Fi throughout the home. This home offers over 3,500 sq. feet of living space with 5 large bedrooms including a huge master suite and attached bedroom. There are 3 bathrooms, one on every floor and a half bath off the deck. Located right off the main channel of Craddock's Creek you are in a protected cove, but only a cove away from the most beautiful part of Smith Mountain Lake. The location is ideal and only a short drive to all the restaurants, boutiques, and grocery stores. There is plenty of parking for as many vehicles as you wish and plenty of room for your boat trailer. So be the first to let your journeys end be here in our coveside paradise.

Smith Mountain Lake State Park

Car: Recommended

Among the lakes water activities are power boating, canoeing, sailing, parasailing, swimming, fishing water skiing, wakeboarding, and jet skiing. SML's lakefront includes six free public boat launches and more than a dozen marinas where you can find the perfect boat rental for your visit. Power boats and wave runners can be rented at several locations on the lake, including: Bridgewater Plaza Marina (Boats can also be picked up at the State Park), Parrot Cove (Parrot Cove also rents Kayaks), Parkway Marina (formerly knows as Saunders Marina), Mitchell's Point Marina or Virgil Naff Sea Doo (wave runners only).

The closest boat launch and boat rental is Mitchell's Point Marina. Off water you can enjoy sightseeing that includes many spectacular views of the lakes mountainous 500-mile shoreline. Five challenging golf courses surround the lake. Smith Mountain Lake State Park includes miles of hiking trails and breathtaking views. To view the lakefront scenery and homes from the water you can cruise the Virginia Dare, a 19th century side paddlewheeler, or visit an alpacas farm on the lake. If you love fishing you are in the right place. Bassmaster rates SML among the USA's 25 best bass lakes! You must visit the SML's Dam Visitors' Center to see an awesome presentation that shows how the dam was built and what the area was like before the dam. There are three entrances near the lake to the Blue Ridge Parkway where you can visit eleven plus visitors centers and a multitude of outdoor activities. Don't forget to stop by Booker T. Washington National Monument. It allows the public to see what slavery was like and how the plantation system worked. There are many other local attractions like Appomattox Court House, Hickory Hill Vineyards and Winery, Science Museum of Western Virginia, and Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest. This is the perfect location to spend quality time with your loved ones.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My wife and I are natives of New Jersey. I work for Foley Caterpillar in northern New Jersey and my wife has been a school teacher in southern NJ for over 20 years. We have five children ranging from 17 to 27 and treasure each and every moment we get to spend together. As the children get older they get busier with their own lives, and we wanted a place we could all come together and make memories to last a lifetime.

Why the Owner Chose Huddleston, VA, USA:
It has always been our dream to own a home on a beautiful lake. My father rebuilt the cabin he was born in not far from Smith Mountain Lake and we have spent many summers enjoying Virginia. Nancy's father built a cabin on a lake in Maine when she was seven and we both grew up loving the outdoors and spending time with family and friends on lakes. We knew we wanted to find the perfect lake property for our family, but did not want to go north. After years of searching, it only took one look at this property to know this was it!! This home has everything we had ever hoped for in a lake property. Our whole family can come and enjoy our new home for years to come. We can't wait to have grandchildren some day come and spend time at the lake. We feel like we are in our own little paradise, secluded from all the boats and people on the lake. Our cove is quiet and serene, but just a short distance from all of the action on the lake. The water is crystal clear and unlike Maine much warmer! We are so excited to share our paradise with others and have gone to great lengths to make everything perfect for our guests!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What we love most about our home is the location. We don't have to worry about getting hit by a jet ski or speeding boat. The location of the dock is perfect for a sunset view in the evening. At night our favorite thing to do is lay in the new hot tub and look at the stars. The stars on a clear night will take your breath away. There is so much room to spread out in the home and no matter how many people are there you do not feel like you are on top of each other. All of the pillows and bedding are brand new and everything has been redone both inside and out. The floating dock that was just installed is perfect for your boat which leaves the second stationary dock for running and jumping into the water. One of our favorite things to do is kayak. There are so many beautiful locations and coves on the lake to explore. We love the nature that surrounds our home, and know that you will enjoy all that this home has to offer. We really feel blessed by God that He has allowed us to own such a beautiful home, and hope that we are able to bless others as they spend time together with their family and friends here at Journeys End.
