Overview

About the property

Cedar Cabin on quietest part of Smith Mtn. Lake. 2 bedrooms/ 1 bath

Located in Cedar Key on secluded no wake cove on Smith Mountain Lake. No wake area excludes heavy boat traffic and noisy jet skies and provides a peaceful feeling and safe swimming, somewhat rare on the lake.

If you are looking for a perfect getaway, this is the place. The one mile tree-lined drive from the entrance starts your relaxing journey. After arriving, relax on the deck and enjoy the splendid views of lake and undeveloped mountains.

For those sensitive to pet odors, smoke, etc., we are providing a pet free and smoke free home. Occupancy is limited to 4 guests. This is only the 3rd season that the Cabin has been rented and it is in excellent condition with brand new hardwood floors, new refrigerator, new range, and new twin beds.

The Cabin has two bedrooms (one queen bed, and two twins) and one full bathroom with shower/tub. The master bedroom has a sliding glass door which provides beautiful views and access to the large deck that extends the length of the Cabin. The great room also has sliding glass door that provides beautiful lake views and access to the large deck. The views are of undeveloped wooded mountains and lake.

We have central air and heat with ceiling fans throughout, satellite TV, WIFI internet access, and VCR with lots of movies. There is a fully furnished kitchen and an outdoor charcoal grill on the deck.

Smith Mountain Lake is a boater's and fisherman's paradise. There are 500 miles of shoreline on this 40 mile long, 20,000 acre lake. If you have your own boat, you can launch it at nearby boat launch at Mitchell's Point Marina and dock it at the Cabin's dock. Boat rentals and wave runners are available at several lake locations. From our location it is about 1000 feet to the main channel of the lake. For the fisherman, we are located on Witcher Creek where the stripers spawn. The lake is stocked with bass, muskies, northern pike, and other small game fish.

If you just like relaxing and nature, there is plenty of wildlife. Hiking is available along our lightly traveled one mile entrance road or in the surrounding woods. Golf is available at nearby Mariners Landing and 2 other courses.

About Ken Scheve

I purchased the Cabin when I lived in Roanoke. The kids spent many happy days here. I moved in 1992 and currently live in Colorado. The kids have also moved to Colorado. Due to the distance we seldom get there anymore, although we are hoping the grandsons will be able to visit from time to time and have the same great experiences as their parents. We have chosen not to rent the cabin until recently. But the realization has set in that it will be seldom used by us in the future. I do want to keep the cabin and pass it on to my son and recently decided to start renting it. I think you will find it extremely comfortable as it has been furnished and maintained for our personal use. The Cabin is named Lake-Fest in honor of my daughter and her annual event that she held here while attending Virginia Tech.

Ken Scheve purchased this cabin in 1987

Why Ken Scheve chose Huddleston

I bought this Cabin as a weekend retreat from work in nearby Roanoke. The peaceful location on the lake in the no wake zone with the beautiful undeveloped mountain views was ideal for re-energizing after each busy work week.

What makes this cabin unique

Isolated portion of lake near Smith Mountain Lake Park. You will not find a more secluded area of the lake (but readily accessible) with better uncluttered views. The Cabin feel is distinctly different from a house and provides a true vacation feeling.

Nice place. Perfect for a quiet getaway weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday. Steak and cake at the lake! Comfy and quiet. Great time watching the sun set over the lake with a glass of wine.

clean, well-managed, perfect for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is aptly described in the online information. And the owners were very responsive and tremendous communicators. The place is clean, instructions about use and details of the cabin are helpful, and the view is just as shown in all the pictures. It is private (without being so remote and isolated that a single "city" person would feel uncomfortable) and all the appliances and entertainment/electronics worked perfectly. Exterior deck is large and overlooks a quiet area of a beautiful lake. The price is more than reasonable given the level of quality of the cabin ... Very (VERY!) nice.
