Overview

About the property

Private Suite can accommodate up to four adults.

Sans Souci is French for 'care free.' There could not be a more apt description for this very special property. We are located in the most beautiful and pristine corner of the most scenic lake in the mid-Atlantic region of the US.

Sans Souci offers stunning views of Smith Mountain & a 5,000 acre wilderness preserve from a point lot. Porch, patio, beach & dock offer a wide variety of opportunities to relax & take in the natural beauty of Smith Mountain Lake. Swim, sail, kayak, windsurf, fish, ski, wakeboard & wakesurf directly from the property.

The photogenic views, clean air, natural environment and comfort are simply unparalleled. A two or three day stay is like magic for the soul. This is a truly special property!

New for this winter season! Use of our hot tub with a panoramic view of the starry skies may be added to your stay for a fee of $20 per day, for each day of booking. This is a large, four-person spa with foot jets and various back massage configurations. The southerly view toward the mountain provides an expansive, yet private view of the sky. It is the perfect way to enjoy chilly nights at the lake! Bath robes provided.

The Lake offers four waterfront golf courses, more than a dozen waterfront restaurants, frequent weekend events, a well-known art gallery, boardwalk and easy access to hiking.

The luxurious suite, built in a separate wing of the house, offers wood ceilings in the bedroom, radiant floor heat, luxurious rain shower, satellite TV, wireless Internet and an amazing attention to detail. It is decorated with original art by local artists, family members and African craftsmen. There is a king sized bed with 600-count cotton sheets & European comforters in the bedroom provides a great night's sleep. There is also a King sized ComfortSleeper platform bed in the sitting room.

A photo of the patio even served as the cover for the Roanoke Area Visitor's Guide and a May, 2009 article about Roanoke in US Airways Magazine. That same photo has become the iconic symbol of lake living at SML.

Come see for yourself what everyone is talking about!

PS We are VERY sorry that HomeAway has begun charging a fee to people booking through their website, our guests. We pay HomeAway/VRBO over $600 per year for this listing, specifically because we think that charging guests a percentage of their rental amount is a scam and is undeserved by a company that simply provides web listings. If you agree with us, please let HomeAway/VRBO know that you, too, are opposed to their "double dipping." Contact us if you have questions.

About Anneliese & Bill Piatt

We first met in West Africa when serving in the Peace Corps many years ago. We've lived, worked and traveled around the world, picking up many ideas that have been incorporated into this special place. We open a private wing of our home to B&B guests primarily as a hobby, because we both enjoy meeting interesting people and get pleasure from sharing this special corner of the world.

Anneliese & Bill Piatt purchased this chalet in 1999

Why Anneliese & Bill Piatt chose Smith Mountain Lake Area

This is a luxurious property, tastefully & discretely adorned with original art, that exudes an air of timelessness that is primarily associated with island living in the tropics. We started with a great lot and then spent nearly 10 years perfecting the complete package - from the interior amenities & appointments to the park-like grounds.

What makes this chalet unique

This is the only part of the lake that has an unobstructed view of Smith Mountain & the 5,000 acre wilderness preserve. The water is the deepest and cleanest on the entire lake. The dark night sky, unpolluted with neighbors' lights, provides a stunning view of the stars - as impressive as any we've seen anywhere in the US!

Best vacation for relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous property run and maintained by warm, friendly hosts. They gave us information about the area and helped us with mapping things out. Home was immaculate and private. Breakfasts were out of this world. Definitely going back as often as possible!

Beautiful spot with gracious hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful experience at San Souci. Our accommodations were lovely, and the setting on the lake could not have been more perfect. Anna and Bill were delightful hosts, offering delicious meals and great advice for our stay. We highly recommend a getaway at this little piece of paradise!

Wonderful location, wonderful B&B, wonderful people

  • 5 of 5

We had quite a getaway to Sans Souci in Huddleston. We were looking for a place where we could spend time together as a family to get away from the hectic day to day. My wife, 3 year old daughter and I got just that. The dock, water, beach were absolutely divine and whenever there a free, unoccupied time we always felt drawn down there. Bill and Anne, as well as there sweet grandkids, were always welcoming and hospitable-offering recommendations for places to eat and things to do in the area. And although our toddler family dynamic sometimes created more noise or drama than the place deserved, they never missed a beat and were gracious from beginning to end. We will gladly return, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sans Souci to any and everyone. Plus plus vacation.

Luxurious is right!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Memorial Day week at San Souci with our college age daughter. It was every bit as lovely as the photos. The gourmet breakfasts were so magnificent we didn't need to eat lunch the entire time we were there. During our week we visited the dam, the Booker T. Washington monument, kayaked, lounged on the dock, took a fishing charter and enjoyed shopping around the lake and in Roanoke. We could easily have spent another week doing all the things we didn't get a chance to do.

This B&B is close enough to all the action that you never need to travel far, especially if you have a boat, but tucked away so that you can enjoy the peaceful beauty of the lake. Anne and Bill are SML experts and can help you find the activities to make it your dream vacation.
