Photos and Description of this Huddleston holiday house

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms

Professionally decorated Lakefront home.

** New for 2016: Pool Table.

It's always Happy Hour at Happy Oars. Beautifully decorated home in a quiet cove on Smith Mountain Lake. This home includes gorgeous views from the living room, a custom nautical themed bar and lots of surrounding decks. Located on a very secluded cove with 8' of clean water, you can spend hours floating around without having to worry about boat traffic. The dock has a great rope swing for kids and kids at heart. 12' x 30' fixed dock plus floating dock with bumpers ready for you to tie off your boat or rental boat. There is a gently tiered walkway from the house to the dock.

Happy Ours offers 3200 square feet of living space. Trane brand air conditioning, Kinetico brand water treatment system (wish filtered drinking water). WIFI, HD Antenna reception of all networks and a dozen other stations.

Main level includes:

Master bedroom - king bed, large walk in closet (great for a pack and play) and a private bath. Master also offers access to upper deck.

Queen bedroom and full bedroom that share a full bathroom.

Large living area with lots of seating and floor to ceiling windows/doors that provide spectacular lake views. Living area seats 8 and includes a 48' LCD HDTV with BlueRay/DVD player.

Fully equipped kitchen with everything you will need for your vacation: microwave, 2 coffee makers, toaster and toaster oven, brand new dishwasher, blender, dishes, glassware, bakeware and much much more! Kitchen also includes a large pantry for food storage.

Indoor dining room seats 8 and eat in kitchen seats 4. Outdoor table seats 6.

2 deck areas with seating to sit and enjoy the magnificent views!

2 car garage with extra refrigerator.

Lower level:

Large living space with custom bar area, large sectional, 48 inch LCD HDTV with BlueRay/DVD player and XBox Kinect system with games, board games and puzzles. Bar has 4 stools, accent lighting, a mini fridge and sink. A highlight of Happy Oars!

A newly added recreation room with an air hockey table and a ping pong table.

Large bunk room with 2 twin over full bunks sleeping 6 children. Built in window seat and cabinets make for a great place to store all of your kid accessories. Your kids will LOVE this room. *Just added: TV and DVD player.

King bedroom with walk out access to lower level decks.

Full bathroom.

All week long rentals include linens. Linen rental option is available for off-peak weekend rentals for a fee.

Located in the Craddock Creek area, it is close to the Dam and this means deeper, clearer, cleaner water. There are plenty of marinas close by for waterfront dining and boat rentals. Huddleston is a little removed from the Halesford Bridge hustle and bustle, but it's an easy car trip if you want to take in some shopping and mini golf.

**Please note that as per Bedford County ordinance, Happy Oars can only accommodate up to 8 adults maximum.

About Angie & Christopher Brement

Angie & Christopher bought Happy Oars in Summer 2014 as a family retreat and rental property to share with others who enjoy Smith Mountain Lake. We currently reside in Crozet, VA where Christopher is homebuilder (Bramante Homes) and Angie is a freelance retail analyst. We love being able to take weekend trips down to the lake to enjoy all that the area has to offer and spend time with family and friends.

Why Angie & Christopher Brement chose Smith Mountain Lake

We have vacationed on SML for years and have come to realize that 5 bedroom homes are a challenge to find. Our house hunt was all over the place, but this home met all necessities for a multi family lake vacation. We love that the lot and cove are private so that we can enjoy lots of dock time and floating around the lake, yet open water is a short idle away before opening up the throttle.

What makes this house unique

We first fell in love with the view from the living room and upper deck. Having morning coffee while looking at the views is the best! The moment I walked out onto the back deck, I knew this was 'home.' The rope swing is a hidden treasure. We had no idea how much fun the kids (and adults) would have on it for hours on end...

Fabulous Family Fun at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

For the 2nd year in the row our families have enjoyed Happy Oars! Once again the rope swing wins out as the favorite feature. Other amenities to make family vacation easier included having two coffee makers, two refrigerators, access to the garage, and the game room. We look forward to a repeat visit in '17!

Great House.

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us were there on the 2nd week of August 2016 and really enjoyed the house. The dock and cove are comparatively private; the trip to Moneta was only 15-20 minutes and the White House convenience store was handy. The lower part of the lake has all the services we needed, including dockside dining. We would rent Happy Oars again.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The whole family had plenty of room. We didn't have any children with us but you never would have known it with the fun we had. The house is very nice with a kitchen big enough to have several people help cook and clean up. Two big TVs that I am not sure if they worked because we never turned them on. The game room with air hockey, pool table, and ping-pong kept us busy in the evening. The swimming was great and so was the walk down from the house. We have stayed at places where the walk was so bad you only wanted to do it once a day, not the case here.

Great house for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We booked Happy Oars for our family group of 10 since Smith Mountain Lake is a great central location for everyone. Far enough away from everything to relax but close enough to get into town, we loved our stay there. The game room was perfect for both kids and adults (mostly the adults) and the bedroom layout worked well for everyone. Angie was a pleasure to deal with and responded to all emails promptly. Everyone agreed that we needed to come back in the summer when we can really get out and enjoy everything the lake has to offer.

Amazing Destination Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

We booked Happy Oars with another family for our "Destination Thanksgiving" get-away. Happy Oars was spacious, tastefully decorated, and well appointed for our group of 13. The views of the lake we lovely and calming. The game room provided hours of fun for the teens. The owner, Angie, was extremely nice to work with regarding questions and other communication. We absolutely recommend this lovely lake house and hope to book in the summer some time!
