In 2004 we came to Smith Mountain Lake with some good friends. It was supposed to be a one-week vacation. We had spent the last several years scoping out potential retirement locations, all over the Eastern US, all based on the dream of one day living on the water. On the third day of our vacation, we were sitting on our rented boat, drinking our morning coffee, watching the sunrise over Smith Mountain. I looked at Kay and asked: “Why not here?” We returned home to Northern VA., sold our house and began the journey that led to building our beautiful home on SML.

There’s a reason it’s called “The Jewel of the Blue Ridge.” The colors are ever changing. Sunrise, sunset, 4 seasons…
you can stand in the same spot, at the same time each day and the snapshot will look different. The water is clear, boating is often a year round option and the surrounding countryside is rich in history. Let us help you achieve your dream of finding the right home or building site in this pristine place.
