Runaway Bay Lynch Station, VA
Runaway Bay is a modern waterfront community with a mix of young families and retired professionals. It has wonderful common areas including multiple boat launches, covered pavilion and park like walkways through woods.
Runaway Bay is a wonderful place to live, you can enjoy the peace and quite in the off season and enjoy the activity during in season.
Runaway Bay still has great lots for sale in addition to the resale of some homes. The lots have great building locations and many of them have an abundance of trees to offer privacy and seclusion. Or how would you like a have a daily view of the lake. Where you can relax and read a great book. Or how about entertaining friends on your deck. Runaway Bay is a great place to get away from it all. You don't have the noise or traffic you get on Smith Mountain Lake.
