The house was nice and had some gorgeous views. Our first day Saturday we enjoyed a band on the other side of cove. Nice concert while taking in the views from the beautiful deck and dock. Walking between the dock and house was easy and loved sitting on the dock. Plenty room for us to dock a boat and 3 jet skis.
Great SML rental!
Clean, spacious home with everything you need for a lake getaway. The kitchen was well stocked with all the essentials needed for cooking. The dock accommodated my husbands boat and was a great place to hang out and enjoy SML. The owners were very nice and quick to answer any questions we had about our stay. I would recommend this vacation rental to others.
Perfect family lake house with gorgeous views
We had 8 adults and a baby stay at this house over 4th of July weekend and it couldn't have been more perfect. Our favorite parts were jumping off the spacious dock into the cool lake water every day, floating around the dock and staring at the amazing mountain view, and sitting on the beautiful large deck of the house. Inside, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the renovations to the upstairs bath and entire basement were perfect. Most of the family in attendance grew up vacationing at lakes in upstate NY, which are gorgeous - so expectations were high. This house exceeded them - we are already talking about next year!!
Are we in the right place?
My sister arrived at the house first and sent a text that said "It's so nice that I'm afraid I'm in the wrong house." When I arrived, I saw what she meant. Despite pouring over the website and being familiar with the property (we stayed nearby for the last 10 summers), I was stunned at the beautiful (but remarkably comfortable) house. The pictures are certainly accurate but are nowhere near as awesome as the real thing.
We spent the majority of the week on the deck or the dock, but the house had plenty of room for our crew - particularly the well-stocked kitchen for the foodies among us. The owners were friendly, accomodating, and exceptionally easy to work with. I have stayed in another house in this cove yearly, so we already knew the cove, the view, and area of the lake were PERFECT for our adventures. However, we were anxious picking a new place and I was worried we wouldn't be able to overcome our nostalgia for the old place... I couldn't be more wrong. Everyone agreed this is the new place for us! We hopped over to Mitchell's Marina to pick up our boat rental, caught BIG catfish and carp from the dock, kayaked out to the point and stood on the shoal, dove for "seashells" under the dock, played corn hole on the flat-ish lot (a rare find in the area), visited the local marinas, and left all our problems at the top of the driveway.
This truly is an EXCEPTIONAL house that is clearly cared for by its owners. Highly recommended -- except for the the week that I want it next year. ;)
Best Family Vacation to Date!
We just came back from the BEST vacation we've had as an extended family. I booked a stay for 5 adults and 3 kids (boys - 5, 7 and 10) to stay at the lake for a week. The kids were so busy fishing and swimming all day long that they almost never asked to watch a show or play a video game all week. The setup of the property is such that the adults could relax in the water or on the dock and still keep the little people in sight. Everyone thoroughly relaxed for 7 days -- it was great! I think you would be hard pressed to find a better dock setup and lake views than this house. There are plenty of chairs to enjoy the deck and dock; I recommend bringing some swimming toys and floats. The cove is super calm; floats work great! We also rented a boat from a nearby marina for 2 of the 7 days. It was a nice way to break up the week. Finally, the owners of the property were quick to reply to any questions I had. This was my first experience using VRBO.com, and I will most certainly be back!
Huddleston Lake Home
The house is located near the dam side of the lake, which is my favorite part of the lake. It is a well maintained place with good accommodations. The clothes washing machine, however, was not available which is no big deal if you know it ahead of time.
I would highly recommend this place for future visitors.
