Smith Mountain Lake offers over 500 miles of shoreline and is where the motion picture, “What About Bob” was filmed. The lake has become the fastest growing region on the east coast, second to northern Virginia. Nestled in the Appalachian, Blue Ridge Mountains the region offers both breath taking backdrops and a truly rewarding life style for all ages. Be sure to visit our extensive photo galleries as pictures reveal the bigger story. Smith Mountain Lake offers a wealth of sailing marinas, golf courses, resorts, fine restaurants, professional sporting events, arts & amphitheater theater (coming soon), to luxury living at its absolute best. Did you know that the imaginary town from the hit television show Andy Griffith “Mayberry RFD” is currently under construction from the ground up? It’s a massive undertaking here at Smith Mountain Lake!
