About David Horst

30 years ago, I found this beautiful piece of Virginia and built a vacation home for my family. We spent nearly every weekend in the summer enjoying the lake where my kids learned to water ski and my family and friends had fun boating, fishing, jet skiing, tubing. We have had many family and friends gatherings that have given us amazing memories. After retirement, my wife and I relocated to the lake full time in a new house. I began my search for the perfect lake house to rent to people like you to make your own memories here. And so after two years of search, I believe this house offers everything families and friends will need. I want to make your vacation here as wonderful as my memories.

David Horst purchased this house in 2015

Why David Horst chose Huddleston

If you haven't been to Smith Mountain Lake in the Blue Ridge Mountains, you are in for a treat. With 500 miles of shoreline and over 20,000 acres, the lake is formed by the convergence of the Roanoke and Blackwater Rivers with a hydroelectric dam controlling water flow. Blue green clear water is home to striped bass, large mouth and small mouth bass, crappie, blue gills, cat fish and lake trout for the fisherman Or perhaps you just want to soak up the sun on the dock or on a raft. Or just read a book on the deck. Whatever your pleasure, you will surely find it here at 'Tranquility Bay'.

What makes this house unique

The gentle slope to the water, the long winding driveway into the peaceful tranquility of seclusion. The views from nearly every room, deck, patio, and dock are wonderful. The sunsets equally as good. Spending 30 years here has taught me that being in a wide water cove is the best of both worlds......no wakes from boats speeding by on the main channel and wonderful views.

Beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

Tranquility Bay had everything our family needed inside and outside. We spent most of our time on the dock enjoying the deep water cove. The deck was a perfect place for family dinners. We enjoyed it so much that we booked our stay for next year!

Wonderful and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

We have been to many lakes and stayed in many houses this was by far an away our best stay. The house was clean and the beds and bedding were amazing. The walk down to the dock was easy and the kids could fish in the morning and we swam all afternoon. If I had one complaint it was that we didn’t book the house for a longer stay. We enjoyed every minute. Thank you Dave for a wonderful vacation.

Property was more than anticipated.

  • 5 of 5

My family usually goes to the ocean for vacation. Since we were brought up on a lake in upstate New York we decided to stay at a lake in Virginia. The house , lake and area were wonderful. It was the first vacation in years that was truly restful. We kayaked, fished, swam and hiked as so much was included with the house that we had time to do the activities that we never had time on vacation to do in prior years. We plan on coming back next year. Thank you to the Horsts for such a great house and being so accommodating to our needs. We recommend this house to any family looking for a Great Lake vacation.

Tranquility Bay is the perfect name!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our week at Tranquility Bay. David provided so many thoughtful details that made our stay relaxed and comfortable. We had many competitive games of pool and foosball! The deck and boat dock were wonderful and we all slept well on our comfortable beds. Also, the kitchen was so well stocked with dishes, appliances, and spices that cooking was a pleasure. We will return to this beautiful home!

Wonderful Retreat with all the extras!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, pup, and I stayed at Tranquility Bay for a week this June. It was awesome. The location of the house is perfect with a sloping lawn down to the water. Our dog loved running down to the boathouse and dock to check out the fish swimming by the shore. We spent every morning drinking our coffee sitting on the deck listening to the birds and enjoying the view of the water. The house was gorgeous and had everything we could imagine needing. The king size bed was very comfortable and the perfect place to sack out after an afternoon of canoeing, kayaking, or playing golf at the nearby course. We will definitely keep Tranquility Bay on the short list to return to! Loved it!
