Property type cabin

Photos and Description of this Huddleston holiday cabin

Sleeps 4, 2 bedrooms, private dock, Romantic Retreat

Cabin 2 is in a row of ten that rim the shore of a secluded cove on Smith Mountain Lake.The cabin is near the end, making it one of the most private of all. There are wilderness views of undeveloped forest and the lake, as well as Smith Mountain. The cabins are located on Witcher Creek, which is a no wake area. This feature makes swimming very safe, and a sense of peacefulness prevails that you will not find in other areas of the lake that experience more boat traffic. A private deep-water dock is shared by the two cabins, offering easy access for boating, swimming and sunbathing. Both cabins are two-bedroom, one-bath lakefront homes, with solid cedar construction, open-beam ceilings and hardwood floors. Silver Bay View Cottages are ideal for reunions. We can accommodate up to 24 people between four properties that include the Main House, the Cedar Cabin and Cabins 1 and 2. Be sure and check out these other properties as well.

Swimming: There is nothing more enjoyable than to stretch out on the dock with a good book, and then dive into the clear, warm water for a refreshing swim. The lake is one of the cleanest in the East Coast, and as you swim or relax, you are looking across to undeveloped wilderness.

Boating: There may be no better lake in the Mid-Atlantic region for boating. The 20,000 acres of Smith Mountain Lake and its 40-mile length make it a perfect place for water skiing, speed boating, canoeing, kayaking or sailing. 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.

Fishing: Fishing opportunities at Silver Bay View Cottages are unbelievable. The properties are located on Witcher Creek where the stripers spawn every spring. The lake is regularly stocked with game fish, and contains striped bass, large and small mouth bass, muskies, northern pike, and an assortment of small game fish. Fishing guides are available to introduce you to the lake, including: Captain Bert's Fishin' Charters, Mike's Striper Guide Service, Rockfish Adventures.

Clean, Well supplied and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed it. Everything was provided so it made it easy not to have to supply linen or cooking utensils.

We could have use some more lighting in the bedrooms. The time of year was a little problem finding some things open but we found other things to do. Especially liked the Dam.

Thank you for stopping by and it was nice getting to meet you

Serene and Rejuvenating

  • 5 of 5

Cabin 2 was the perfect spot for our SML vacation. Who wouldn't love to start the day on the deck nestled among the trees, gazing across the water at the mountain? We enjoyed the dock for fishing and swimming, too. We used the barbecue several times, and found that the cabin had just enough room for our family of 3 and our chocolate Lab. The owner, Jim Erler, had been in the area to work on another cabin, and stopped by to say hello, and asked if we were enjoying our stay. What a nice guy! We had a great time, and would love to go back again.
