About Ashley

Our family called Smith Mountain Lake home for a year back in 2012. When we left, our hearts were heavy and we vowed to return. In 2014, we purchased our other property, The Wind Family Compound (VRBO#515831). We sought to provide a retreat for our own extended family as well as a top notch vacation rental so everyone could enjoy SML. The response was overwhelming and our waiting list grew so long that we decided to purchase The Wind Family Estate. This property raises the bar once again and provides a total package property complete with amenities that will make sure even those with the highest of expectations can enjoy SML!

Ashley purchased this house in 2014

Why Ashley chose Huddleston

This property caught our eye back in 2012 when we lived at the lake, long before it was on the market--it stands out even among the many million dollar homes at SML! When it came on the market, we joked that it was our ultimate dream home but never thought we would actually own it. With the help of the good Lord, our dreams have come true!

What makes this house unique

Priceless views, massive luxury home, crystal clear water with enormous dock, most every amenity you can think of...the list goes on and on! We have specifically set out to set a new standard and raise the bar for rental properties at SML! Few houses on the lake are in the elite class with the Wind Family Estate and a property of this caliber is almost nonexistant on the rental market!

Excellent Owner

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Ashley, was wonderful to work with and was extremely helpful to us during our planning. A voice or email brought quick responses to our many questions. Highly recommend working with the Wind family with their lovely properties,

Fell in love with SML

  • 5 of 5

We started going to Lake Norman several years ago instead of the Outer Banks for our family vacation. My daughter found this home online and we all decided to book on a whim and switch it up. This home far exceeded all homes we have stayed at on Lake Norman. We are coming back next year!

Best on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been visiting Smith Mountain Lake for the past 10 years for our weekly family vacation. This home is by far the best one we have ever stayed in. The owners were extremely accommodating as well as being available prior to and during our stay. Finding homes that are cleaned adequately at the lake can be a difficult task. The owners need to keep a hold on their cleaners. They are doing a great job. We always bring our own boat, but the kayaks, canoe, paddleboat, floats and SUP's were an additional fun experience we didn't anticipate. Highly recommend. You shouldn't pass this house up!

Begging the family to come back next year!

  • 5 of 5

My parents celebrated their 40 wedding anniversary at Smith Mountain Lake at the Wind Family Estate this summer. It were so thrilled to find a home that our whole family was accommodated so easily. We rarely see each other, so we had a great time together. This spot allowed us to all stay together, but have our own space. My parents loved the view, and all the kids raved about the overwhelming amount of games. We used the boats and swam everyday. My parents rented a boat that we all enjoyed because they hadn't gotten out since we were kids. This was such a memorable place for our family. We are trying to make it happen again next year!

What a GEM!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing week! We have stayed in other homes at Smith Mt. and vacation on the Outer Banks annually but never have we stayed in such an amazing home. The architecture of this home is spectacular. Every amenity we could have hoped for to enjoy our week was there from grills to water toys to games. The owners answered all our questions promptly and attended to our every need to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The cove is very private and calm with great vistas. The grandparents enjoyed watching watersports from the porches and decks. The quality of the furnishings is more like a luxury home than a rental property. Our large family enjoys rotating vacation properties for a new experience but I think we will be back to this one because I'm not sure we will find one to top it!
