On Monday and Tuesday, John Merritt (The Coves’s Project Manager) and I had a chance to spend some time boating on Smith Mountain Lake. What is amazing about the lake is how BIG it is! The vistas of the land are breathtaking and the water is clear and pure. You can look down and see some of the area’s largest fish swim by.
By boat is a great way to see some of the designs of the waterfront homes and boat docks. We ran into a dock that looks like it was imported from the Far East! Overall, the quality of the designs of the homes and docks on Smith Mountain Lake are some of the best in the country. You can tell that individuals living here take enormous pride in their homes and communities.
You can see why this lake attracts individuals who want to enjoy the best of waterfront living. We saw a wide variety of water activities being enjoyed by the very young, to the seasoned enthusiast. From the excitement of calm lake water skiing, to the area’s best fishing, the lake provides the ultimate getaway for those love life on the water.
As Smith Mountain Lake’s first sustainable community, The Coves’s understands the importance of maintaing the natural beauty of the lake and the land. We are committed to following design and development guidelines that will help protect this amazing lake for generations to come. Everything we do at The Coves is driven by the guiding principal that the value of the community will be best maintained and enhanced if we take care of the land and lake as our community grows.
