About Smith Mountain Lake Franklin County (Smith Mountain Lake, VA)
Smith Mountain Lake, named for the 22,000 acre man-made lake at its center, offers year round and vacation living in a beautiful setting near the Blue Ridge Mountains. Lying between Lynchburg and Roanoke, the area attracts vacation home owners and retirees, who come for the excellent golf courses, abundant fishing, and water sports along the 500 miles of shoreline – and friendly people. Several newer condo communities offer elegant waterfront living, but there are many affordable housing choices in an area where there is always something to do.

Whether you are looking for a vacation home or a year round residence, Smith Mountain Lake offers you the best in waterfront living.  Anchored by a 22,000 acre man-made lake, Smith Mountain Lake itself has 500 miles of shoreline.  It is known for its fishing, its boating, and its opportunities for water sports - but the town is also renowned for its championship golf courses, area attractions, and friendly townspeople. As a resident of Smith Mountain Lake myself for over 20 years, I know the Lake both as a resident and a Realtor®.  My husband Bill and son Trey and I have created a wonderful home at the Water's Edge community where we enjoy a rich social life full of "lake activities".  Because I know what Smith Mountain Lake offers to prospective buyers, I offer my clients a whole lot m...

Do you use Aerial Photos in your marketing.   In our Smith Mountain Lake area, we find that what many call the backyard is our front yard or lakeside as we call it.   There are so many different angles of photos that you need, sometimes the best way to capture a lake home is by using aerial photography.   At Smith Mountain Lake, we have enjoyed a new company, Infocus,  that offers Aerial Photography by using a Balloon Camera.  By using this balloon camera, they are able to position slightly above the home or property that you are trying to capture.  Previously I used photographers that had plans or helicopters.   The cost of those was slightly higher but also the photos were so distant you could get the degree of details that you receive from this new Balloon Camera Photography.

People flock to Smith Mountain lake every year for the golf on one of our championship courses.  When you buy a home at Water's Edge or one of our other waterfront developments, I want to keep you up to date on anything that might affect your satisfaction. Vicki Millehan, Vickislakehomes.com Dear Water's Edge Member,I would like to thank you for your patience during the past couple of months with the condition of various greens. As you may be aware, we have struggled with a new disease called "Take-all Patch," which attacks the root system of new greens. We have worked closely with Virginia Tech over the summer to correct the problems and we are seeing many improvements. The last couple of weeks have been ideal growing conditions and the weaker greens are recovering nicely.During the co...
