Upscale 4 BR, 3 Bath House on Secluded, Beautiful Setting.
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.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Tranquil time at Tranquility Bay
We love the property in Huddleston. My children love fishing off the dock and spending time in the hammock swings. We also love the pool table and fooseball table to play some competitive games. We love spending time together here and making memories. The best stay yet and we will be back next year that’s how much we love staying here.
This property was absolutely beautiful. My family and our guests were more than impressed with all of the little extras that Dave provided. The basement game room was a blast and was used by everyone. The house and property were the perfect fit for my family. We would absolutely recommend this house 100%. We hope to visit again in the future!
Everything you need !
David and Mary have attained their goal to provide a beautiful lake house on Smith Mountain Lake for everyone to enjoy! It is one of the most immaculate, well appointed homes anywhere in the world our family has vacationed at. Truly, all you need is already there minus your own clothes and food 😊 We rented a boat for the week to make our vacation complete. Book it, you won’t be sorry !
A TRANQUIL place indeed!
This was a perfect place for some fun, relaxation and time with family. The home was extremely clean, organized, and comfortably decorated. No one was for need of anything! We rented a pontoon boat to fish for the week, but quite honestly you could fill your days with kayaking/paddle boats, swimming, and dock fishing right there. The pool table and foosball provide nice entertainment if it rains. We highly recommend this place!
Thanks so much, Christie! Hope to meet your family next time!!
Wonderful home, property, lake and vacation!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Tranquility Bay home at Smith Mountain Lake. Dave, the owner was great to work with and very responsive. We had an issue with a broken oar and he brought us a new one the same day. The home was very clean and comfortable, with nice furniture and amenities. They even supply the toilet paper, soap, and paper towels, which have never been supplied at our previous rental homes. Our family is very active so we had fun playing ping pong, pool, foosball, and enjoyed all the boats and floats. We would definitely stay at this home again if we go to Smith Mountain Lake again, which is truly a beautiful lake!
Lovely, peaceful and relaxing
We really enjoyed our stay at Tranquility Bay. The home is lovely and our time there was very peaceful and relaxing. Dave and Mary Beth provided fantastic information on the restaurants and activities in the area; it was very thorough and helpful.
Enjoy the lake with swimming, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boat, water ski, boating, jet ski, exploring the 20,000 acres and 500 miles of shoreline. Best striped bass fishing on the east coast. Wineries close by. Music in several venues. State park with a sandy beach and golf course a few minutes away. Many restaurants on accessible by boat and car. Drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway for the view or hiking.
