It’s Christmastime at Smith Mountain Lake

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Lakefront Realty Inc

This is a special time of year for people everywhere, and it’s no different at Smith Mountain Lake. The SML community enjoys an eventful season, and one that  offers wonderful memories to all ages. Here are a few of the ways Smith Mountain Lake celebrates the holiday.

Santa comes to town - he makes several appearances between Thanksgiving and Christmas, even arriving by boat for the first big debut. You can find him at Bridgewater Plaza. For more information, see the SML Chamber website

Light Displays - Aside from a casual tour of the lit-up lake neighborhoods, the Franklin County, Roanoke and Bedford/Lynchburg communities host holiday light displays throughout the month. The extensive display at Elks National Home in Bedford is of particular draw. Visit for more information. 

Historic Holiday Events - Smith Mountain Lake lies in the midst of rich historic locations and tributes. Christmas often brings special occasion tours, decorating and activities at the many local period destinations. Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest and Booker T. Washington National Monument are two of our most engaging destinations. Both offer fascinating holiday events. 

Holiday Tree Lighting & Displays - Smith Mountain Lake has its own tree lighting ceremony in the town of Westlake in early December. The Bedford and Roanoke tree festivals welcome tours throughout the month.
