Virginia's Best Kept Secret!

Smith Mountain LakeThis website is dedicated to a little known secret in Virginia, U.S.A. called Smith Mountain Lake; the largest, cleanest freshwater lake on the east cost. A well kept secret since about 1966, that is until the late 1990's when thousands of people started coming each year to see Virginia's best kept secret for themselves. Now the rest is history!



What Secret?

    With over a half a thousand miles of pristine shoreline to explore, Smith Mountain Lake is nestled in the heartland of the Appalachian - Blue Ridge Mountains. The massive lake is home to the fifty pound striper, ESPN's Bassmasters Fishing Tournaments, and the Hollywood film location for, "What About Bob" with Bill Murray, as well as "Lake Effects" starring Jane Seymour! Best of all, it's closer than you think as the lake is just a days drive away from 12 US states. The region is now the second fastest growing region on the east cost.

    With continued high gas prices nationwide, Smith Mountain Lake is a huge break away from pricy hot spots found elsewhere in the US. From motels to weekend vacation rentals, boat rentals, restaurants, shopping, even real-estate, including the cost of living here are substantially lower than living in the big cities. Traffic here at the lake is light and thus monster traffic jams are not the norm here!

Fan Mail!

Mr. Roney,

    We met at a Ribbon cutting Ceremony. But, I saw your photography on the Internet the year before we chose to move here.

    The pictures you put on the Internet for Smith Mountain Lake just blew us away. We were living in the most beautiful place in the country, Summit County Colorado among the best ski resorts in the country, Vail, Copper Mountain, Keystone, Breckenridge and Arapahoe. So due to the altitude and our health we had to move to a lower altitude. We researched many places and settled right here. Your photography grabbed us like a fish on a hook. We spent a week traveling from Georgia to West Virginia and still came back to this spot. We are now planting roots.

    Thanks for your beautiful pictures!



    We moved here to Smith Mountain Lake last July from Long Beach, California. We settled in Moneta and are loving it. We have family still back in Long Beach who came across this website and told us about it and we are sharing it with all our family and friends back there; already it (your website) has one brother and family ready to come back and settle here and hope it brings many others.

    Thanks again!

Our Response:

Hi Rock and Eleanor!

    Thank your for your heartfelt letter. It's so rewarding to know how our hard work continues to help others in ways that we did not fully realize over a half-a-decade ago. If you can think of anything major that is missing at, please do not hesitate to let us know. I think we should add a new section called, COMMUNITY DIRECTORY, of where you could find information on area libraries, post offices and emergency numbers. Well...

    Wishing you the very best that life and family has to offer.

    Cordially yours,

    James Roney
