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!

A great family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We visited this home for my father's 62nd birthday. We have visited this location in the past and have always enjoyed our time here. The owners are very helpful and were responsive to any questions we had. There is plenty of room for large groups. We made use of the items in the boat storage area for swimming around the dock and had some fun with the kayaks. We rented a pontoon and jet ski from a place not to far up the shore from this location. We used the lake and dock daily. There are grocery stores and plenty of places local to shop and eat. Overall our family had a great time here and look forward to staying again in the future.

We had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

The only thing that was not right was the sliding door downstairs. I had to go out and buy some WD40 to get the door sliding the way it should.

We rented a boat, and we were out on the lake every day! House had a brand new crock pot that we used and was great to have that there. Kitchen was well supplied and it was great that there were trash bags, dishwasher soap, toilet paper and hand soap = all supplied / very nice touch !

Owner's Response: So sorry about the sliding door not working properly, sometimes things in the house get abused and I can't get to them as quickly as I would like, hope you enjoyed your stay!!!

This home has space for our whole family to vacation together.

  • 5 of 5

The home is well equipped for preparing meals, with a very large kitchen. One of the 5 bedrooms has 2 bunk beds--to include 2 doubles & 2 twins. The home is right on the lake, with several kayaks available to use, as well as floatations items. The Thompson's have done all they can do to give renters a pleasant stay. The rest is up to the vacationers!

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.
