Smith Mountain Lake Home Tour

On Columbus Day weekend, October 9-11, 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 event in the nation that visitors can access tour homes by car or by boat. It offers tour visitors many great ideas for decorating, remodeling and landscaping, as well as a look at lake-living lifestyles.

Tickets will be 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.

Start the tour at the Smith Mountain Lake Visitor Center, where you'll find more information about the area.
