Why Leslie chose Huddleston

The Privacy- and the spectacular views! beautiful area

What makes this house unique

Private, no one across from you- but the Mountain and wildlife

Guestbook comments from the owner

House was better than the on line pictures, bedrooms are spacious, grounds are gorgeous, setting is picture perfect, house has a very comfortable feel to it; furnishings and items provided by the host were more than expected, and much better than you would find in a competing hotel or motel setting. For our family this house was five stars ... Thank you !

A sliver of heaven amidst the summer swelter

  • 5 of 5

Yet again, this place did not disappoint.

Really enjoyed getting to experience a warm summer stay (...and the benefits the lake offers for that weather reality!). Can't wait to book the next trip - hopefully this fall.

Thanks time we'll coordinate for a longer stay to immerse ourselves more fully into the SML state of mind.

Fun time.

  • 4 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful. The location Is beautiful also. The only downside to this home is having to bring your own linens. We have stayed in VRBOs in Maine, Georgia, Bahamas, California, even Lynchburg Virginia and several other states and have never had to bring our own linens. I understand that you can rent the linens but they we expensive and had to be ordered a month in advance. Other than this, there were no other complaints.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying ! Yes sorry you have to rent or bring them - they must be sterile by the laws in the Commonwealth! so for the less expensive nightly options - you could pay more or just bring them .. or pay the $200 from the sterile company to deliver them.. ( I just want to be a linen company!) We used to provide them till the laws changed - this is for your protection as well.. according to the Commonwealth state of VA Thank you for staying, - we do hope you come back sometime !

Beautiful cabin, great location and view. Stayed 10/16-21/2017

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay. The cabin had all the amenities you could need. The weather was perfect. Some of us even got out on the water for a kayak ride. Our dogs loved the large fenced in yard. It made our trip seeing them enjoy running around and playing together. It was so peaceful, we enjoyed sitting out at night and star gazing. Couldn't have asked for a better week away from all the madness. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing home with us. Jean, Jim, Woodrow and Brandy

Best spot on the lake , great home , we just loved it ... especially the pups

we have stayed at the lake many times and this is the best spot around..

thank you for taking our dogs as well ! loved the large fire-pit, and the blankets that we could wrap up in ... also loved the dog bed and the wine as well as the beach towels... this home goes way beyond the basic, with all the touches ... we are looking at the calendars now to come back.

We have been coming to the Log Cabin for over ten years now. We love this place and would highly recommend to any family or couple. We have been other places around the country and have to say that we ALWAYS come back to the Log Cabin. Peaceful, serene, and very homey. !!! Our dogs love it also. The owners keep the place equipped with everything you could possibly need. The home is clean and comfortable for all. This year we rented a boat for the first time on the lake and it was a real asset to the vacation. But even without a boat we have enjoyed our many stays at the Log Cabin Retreat. Lots to do and see. Will be back again without a doubt.

Owner's Response: Wow, first time for the power boat- I know it is so relaxing there you never want to leave- you can paddle all around in there and just relax.. But our lake is great to explore - all 500 miles of it ! Thank you for coming again ! Hope to see you again soon, book for next year as well early .. thank you for taking such great care of the place as well !

2nd time better than the first

  • 4 of 5

Amenities abound. Multiple places to view and enjoy the lake no matter the weather. 5th star for a bigger TV and linens. We will be back. This place is perfect for us and our dog who loved bounding about the large fenced yard.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying ! The TV's will not get bigger- just because - my beliefs are everyone should be outside more - but that is me- I do not watch TV. I wish I could just throw the linens in - but they cost me $150 to have them sterilized ( which is commonwealth law) so I can either raise the price for every booking by that - or we felt that the guest should have the choice to bring them or rent them and pay what was fairly priced, for the home. We do thank you again for staying- and hope to see you again soon !
