About David A. Thompson

I am a Corporate Pilot. My wife and I fell in love with SML about 1997 and have been going there ever since. We hope people enjoy the lake and our lovely home as much as we do! I think you will be surprised at the lengths we went to for EVERYONE to be comfortable. Please ENJOY as much as we do!

David A. Thompson purchased this house in 2000

Why David A. Thompson chose Smith Mountain Lake

Beautiful lake for the entire family, with over 500 miles of shore line. Plenty of things to do, boating, fishing, kayaks, canoe, putt putt golf and plenty of restaurants to get to by boat. We got tired of renting on the lake with low budget beds and TV's, so we decided to buy and make our house one you won't forget.

What makes this house unique

Love the large kitchen and 65" HD TV that the adults can enjoy while cooking and relaxing. We have lot's of fun downstairs with the 75' HD Big Screen TV. Three of the bedrooms have TV's and upstairs they are HD TV's. My children love the room set up for the kids with HD TV, along with Pingpong, and the Arcade machine!

Our very relaxed and peaceful stay at your home!

  • 4 of 5

Our family (grandchildren age 3-22 and our kids age 36-46 loved kayaking and fishing. We brought boats with us (my husband used to be in the,kayak manufacturing business) and paddles. The weather was great.

Loved the kitchen and decks, as well.

We also went to the little beach nearby. The kids loved it. They also swam off your dock as well.

We saw a copperhead down by the dock but we see them here sometimes, as well. Such excitement.

Hope we left everything as we found it. I feel sure we did a good job.

Thanks for a great vacation.

This is our second time at the Thompson lake house and we loved it! The owner is very accomadating and very good to answer any questions. We love being in a nice cove where the younger kids can Kayak (lots of kayaks provided) and swim. Once again, thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Great house and great location.

  • 5 of 5

There was a lot of room to spare as there was only my husband and I on this trip. Lots of options for large families.

It's great to see an owner truly try to keep a rental home in good condition. It's a shame owners don't get the same respect from their renters.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th trip back to the Lake. We fell in love with it in 2010 when we came to celebrate my parent's 40th wedding anniversary. Since then we try to come back every 2 years and always stay at a different house since our families keep growing. The Thompson House was the best so far. The kitchen is awesome. It is spacious and well equipped. We loved the 2 kitchen tables because there was enough room for all 14 of us to sit and eat at the same time. The house contains many other amenities like the huge television in the basement. The kids especially loved the game room and kayaks and fishing pools down at the dock. The owners were great to work with. Anytime we had questions, they responded very quickly. We even had a water problem in the master bathroom and they had someone there to fix it within 2 hours. That is great service. Thanks Mr. & Mrs. Thompson for allowing us to stay at your home. We hope to come again.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

In September of 2015 I celebrated my 60th birthday. We took the whole family, 4 kids, spouses and 7 of our 10 grand children to the lake. My two sisters, spouses, a niece rented a condo off sight and brought there speedboat. I rented a pontoon and jet ski and we had a ball. My kids and grand kids still talk about it and my sisters said it is a beautiful lake. We stopped one day at a lakeside restaurant, docked the boat and ate lunch. The lagoon below the house was perfect for the kids to swim and kayak(provided with the house) and the dock was great. Oh, and all the reviews about hotel rooms etc. that don't turn out like they are advertised, this house was just as advertised and more. Also talked with the owners and they are great people. This place is awesome.

Have To Hurry Up And Book For Next Year!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect!!!!! Our trip for the first few days was a family trip and the house is spacious, clean and was great fun. The Cove is very quiet and private and the house was near stores and shops. The last few days of our trip was - 16 - over 40 year old women for a Ladies Trip. The kitchen and family room layout was perfect for a large group. The kitchen had everything and more that we needed to prepare meals. We used the deck and screened in porch. The doc was our main gathering place and we spent much time in the lake. We rented a boat and got to visit the entire lake. What a beautiful place. I highly recommend this home. Thank you David for sharing your beautiful home with us.
