Smith Mountain Lake Home Tour

On Columbus Day weekend, October 10-12, visitors may tour eight beautiful lakeside residences, which range from a comfy cottage to a 9,000-square foot stately home. Five of the homes are located in Franklin County and three are in Bedford County. The Smith Mountain Lake Charity Home Tour is the only tour in the nation that visitors can access by car or by boat. It offers tour visitors many great ideas for decorating and landscaping, as well as a look at lake-living lifestyles.

Tickets are available in advance online, at select ticket outlets, by mail or at any of the featured homes on the day of the event.  Proceeds of the three-day event are shared by eight selected charities.
