We’re about to let you in on a secret that residents of the Smith Mountain Lake Area hold near and dear to their hearts: Winter is one of the favorite times of year of all who live here! If you’ve been considering a move to the area, fear of winter has probably been a major hesitation point in the decision-making process, and we’re here to show you that not only do need not to be afraid of the season, your first winter on the lake is bound to make you fall even deeper in love with the region! Offering, peace, beauty, and a variety of activities, life is never dull during a Smith Mountain Lake winter.
The first thing we have to discuss is the peace and quiet. As much as we love summer and the flocks of guests that arrive each year, the quiet of a winter day feeds our soul after they have all returned home. For those of us who live on or near the lake, evening walks after the sun has set allow us to calm our thoughts; how can you be stressed or worried as the sounds of the night mingling with the quiet splash of lake water acts as a soothing lullaby to your soul? When the temperatures drop to a point that’s not comfortable (which happens rarely!), most of the homes in the Smith Mountain Lake area come with fireplaces for added warmth; the heating systems work just fine, but the romance of a roaring fire enjoyed with that special person in your life makes every winter night a special one.
Just because the temperatures have dropped below balmy doesn’t mean you’ll need to spend the rest of your Smith Mountain Lake winter huddled in front of that all-important fireplace. In the first place, it doesn’t get THAT cold much of the time, and there’s so much to do in the winter, it would be depressing to miss out on the activities because you’re worried about a little frost! Enjoy a wine tasting at Hickory Hills Vineyards and Winery in Moneta or snowboarding with the pros at Liberty Mountain Snowflex Centre in Lynchburg. A hike in the snow through the woods will work up a gigantic appetite that can only be sated with good old fashioned comfort food found at The Roanoker Restaurant in nearby Roanoke; featured in magazines and television shows all over the US, this spot has become a local tradition for Smith Mountain Lake residents!
