Why Leslie chose Huddleston

The Privacy- and the spectacular views! beautiful area

What makes this house unique

Private, no one across from you- but the Mountain and wildlife

Guestbook comments from the owner

House was better than the on line pictures, bedrooms are spacious, grounds are gorgeous, setting is picture perfect, house has a very comfortable feel to it; furnishings and items provided by the host were more than expected, and much better than you would find in a competing hotel or motel setting. For our family this house was five stars ... Thank you !

A sliver of heaven amidst the summer swelter

  • 5 of 5

Yet again, this place did not disappoint.

Really enjoyed getting to experience a warm summer stay (...and the benefits the lake offers for that weather reality!). Can't wait to book the next trip - hopefully this fall.

Thanks time we'll coordinate for a longer stay to immerse ourselves more fully into the SML state of mind.

Great home, with plentiful amenities and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Overall we had an amazing stay at this home. It is located in a very quiet development where you can go for walks, runs, or bike ride without worrying about traffic. Note, however, that you will get a workout as the development is hilly. The home itself is a charming cottage with very good amenities and all the toys one needs to play in the lake. Beds were very comfortable, furniture cozy and everything worked as it should. Couple notes for consideration to future renters; the house sits on a slope which makes one feel like they are in a tree house overlooking the lake, however, that also means that it is a challenge to walk up and down the hill from the house to the docks, carrying all the water essentials, food, or other items. Think of it as a great leg workout. The home has plenty of deck space by the house and on the lake, with plentiful seating and various nooks and crannies for relaxation. The fenced in yard is appreciated if one has a dog that can freely run around. The fire pit is perfect for roasting s’mores and enjoying a glass of wine in the evening. The owner is very responsive and ensures that your vacation will be a stress free one. The house is stocked with everything needed to cook and the homeowner even provides starting provisions and other items. Nice touch was the bottle of wine. If you are looking for a home where you can disconnect, be located in a quiet neighborhood, enjoy. a country cottage feel with all the water toys.....this rental is for you.

Wonderful, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

great fenced in yard- very relaxing - home owner has gone over and beyond- last year we were here as well - this year 2 kayaks were added ! great surprise - plus the cleaning and lawn are better than ever !! Last year the lawn was cut during our dinner - last day- this year a gentleman came up and asked during the day mid week - and the crew was in and out in 30 minutes - so thank you Leslie for switching- they are doing a much better job, ( you should know) and not interrupting our last day time !

Cleaning was superb as well ! thank you again - we already signed up for next year..

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying again ! I am sorry the other lawn people interrupted you the year before .. yes this crew tries to get the job done and not disturb your stay as much - they even pull weeds - instead of chemicals .. Thank you for taking such great care of the home and more - I am glad you enjoyed the kayaks .. Thanks again for coming back and we look forward to seeing you next year !

Fun time.

  • 4 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful. The location Is beautiful also. The only downside to this home is having to bring your own linens. We have stayed in VRBOs in Maine, Georgia, Bahamas, California, even Lynchburg Virginia and several other states and have never had to bring our own linens. I understand that you can rent the linens but they we expensive and had to be ordered a month in advance. Other than this, there were no other complaints.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying ! Yes sorry you have to rent or bring them - they must be sterile by the laws in the Commonwealth! so for the less expensive nightly options - you could pay more or just bring them .. or pay the $200 from the sterile company to deliver them.. ( I just want to be a linen company!) We used to provide them till the laws changed - this is for your protection as well.. according to the Commonwealth state of VA Thank you for staying, - we do hope you come back sometime !

Beautiful cabin, great location and view. Stayed 10/16-21/2017

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay. The cabin had all the amenities you could need. The weather was perfect. Some of us even got out on the water for a kayak ride. Our dogs loved the large fenced in yard. It made our trip seeing them enjoy running around and playing together. It was so peaceful, we enjoyed sitting out at night and star gazing. Couldn't have asked for a better week away from all the madness. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing home with us. Jean, Jim, Woodrow and Brandy
