Brand new finished basement summer of 2018! Week long rentals are available for the 2019 rental season with a Saturday changeover.
Disclaimer: Beginning summer of 2019, we will no longer be offering WiFi. We have learned from our previous guests that they come to this magical place to unplug, unwind, and step away from distractions. If you are someone looking to relax and step away from the world for awhile then this is the house for you!
Our wonderful home was purchased in February 2017 and has undergone an extensive multi-level renovation. There isn't a single square inch of the home that hasn't been touched with an upgrade! The new design of the home was inspired by HGTV's Fixer Upper powerhouse couple, Chip and Joanna Gaines. Walls were knocked down and an entire staircase was relocated in this little gem to create a warm and inviting open concept farmhouse/lake house.
The massive renovations include the removal of over two dozen trees to create an open living space in both the front and back yards. Other improvements to note are as follows: brand new roof, new 32 x 12 deck, updated dock and new 10 x 10 floater, new custom cabinets in the kitchen with quartz counter tops and lovely farmhouse sink, all new energy efficient windows, new rustic laminate flooring throughout, top of the line stainless steel appliances, a fresh paint job both inside and outside, new gutters, and fresh landscaping. In short, we've been very VERY busy!
The winter of 2018 brought new life to the unfinished basement of the home. We added a large bedroom (sleeps four), a full bathroom, and a full recreation room in the basement.
Our home is nestled in the quiet and private community of Pine Ridge located off of Tolers Ferry Road in Huddleston. The house sits comfortably on an expansive 1.5 acre lot which provides plenty of outdoor space and fun for everyone. The lot to our left is a vacant lot which offers an extra layer of privacy. The majority of our lot is open, however there are several trees on the property that provide shade on those hot summer days.
The neighborhood is quite secluded which allows for uninterrupted morning or evening strolls along the road. The home is set back on the property far enough from the road that you don't have to worry about summer traffic or travelers.We are located on a small road which does not yield much traffic any time during the year. In addition, the Pine Ridge community is a small group of just slightly over 20 homes. This adds to the peace, quiet, and serenity of the area. You will find that we have many full time residents in our community. That said, you will also notice several of the neighbor's dogs meandering around and they will likely stop by to say hello. All of them are extremely friendly and won't turn you down for a scratch behind the ears!
The showpiece of this property is the breathtaking views from every door or window on the back of the house. The sun sets directly across the lake from our home which offers a beautiful and romantic end to the day. Enjoy the sunset from the back deck while sipping on your favorite glass of vino.
In addition to the views, our lot is virtually flat, but offers deep water that ranges in depth from 8-10 feet. That combination is a rare find at Smith Mountain Lake!
The house itself now has three bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs. The master bedroom is equipped with a queen size bed and a full bathroom. The larger of the two other bedrooms boasts two queen sized beds and the smaller bedroom hosts a full over full size bunk bed. The top bunk was "weight tested" by two teenagers and we didn't chance anything beyond 425 pounds! The basement has a very large bedroom with one queen bed and one full bed as well as a full bathroom.
Please note that our home is on a well and septic system so please be mindful of what goes into the pipes. Given the extensive time, effort, and expense it took to renovate this property, we are not accepting pets at this time. Thank you for your understanding.
