About Angie & Christopher Brement

Angie & Christopher bought Happy Oars in Summer 2014 as a family retreat and rental property to share with others who enjoy Smith Mountain Lake. We currently reside in Crozet, VA where Christopher is homebuilder (Bramante Homes) and Angie is a freelance retail analyst. We love being able to take weekend trips down to the lake to enjoy all that the area has to offer and spend time with family and friends.

Angie & Christopher Brement purchased this house in 2014

Why Angie & Christopher Brement chose Smith Mountain Lake

We have vacationed on SML for years and have come to realize that 5 bedroom homes are a challenge to find. Our house hunt was all over the place, but this home met all necessities for a multi family lake vacation. We love that the lot and cove are private so that we can enjoy lots of dock time and floating around the lake, yet open water is a short idle away before opening up the throttle.

What makes this house unique

We first fell in love with the view from the living room and upper deck. Having morning coffee while looking at the views is the best! The moment I walked out onto the back deck, I knew this was 'home.' The rope swing is a hidden treasure. We had no idea how much fun the kids (and adults) would have on it for hours on end...

All you could want in a lake house retreat

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful home with tons of space and amenities on a secluded cove only minutes from Mitchells Marina. Cove was perfect for swimming for all the kids. The rope swing was a massive success. Kids down to 2 yr old all caught sunfish from the dock. Angie is a superstar. Very attentive to all our questions prior to and during the stay. We would return again in an instant! Thank you Angie!

Great fishing trip/Spring Break with family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

My husband fishes a bass tournament there every spring. This year it happened to fall on a weekend during spring break. So we were able to come up and stay for the week with family and friends. This house was perfect - had a lot of rooms (the kids loved the bunk beds), and was well stocked with movies, games, and the game room. In addition, the kitchen (and house in general) had everything we needed to comfortably have a home away from home. I love how it was tucked into a cove with very minimal boat traffic near us. Great spot to kayak with the kids. We even got an adult to jump off the rope swing! (-: Thank you for a great stay!

Fabulous Family Fun at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

For the 2nd year in the row our families have enjoyed Happy Oars! Once again the rope swing wins out as the favorite feature. Other amenities to make family vacation easier included having two coffee makers, two refrigerators, access to the garage, and the game room. We look forward to a repeat visit in '17!

Great House.

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us were there on the 2nd week of August 2016 and really enjoyed the house. The dock and cove are comparatively private; the trip to Moneta was only 15-20 minutes and the White House convenience store was handy. The lower part of the lake has all the services we needed, including dockside dining. We would rent Happy Oars again.
