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...

July 23 to July 30th

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It was clean and had everything we needed. We were three families with six teenage boys who enjoyed the rope swing and being able to go into the water right off the deck. Great location very close to MItchel's marina where we were able to rent a boat for the week.

Nice for larger groups

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice and big and perfect for 2 family's traveling together. Basically the pictures are pretty accurate. Owner was very easy to work with. We love sml. This was our 3rd summer at the lake. Water is very clean and warm. The house was clean and not some place where we would say we wouldn't stay again but defiantly had some small upkeep type issues. The dock and decks could use a good cleaning and water sealed. The lighting in some rooms is insufficient. game room could use some work. Only one cue stick for the pool table had a tip on it and it was barely hanging on. The air hockey table doesn't catch the pucks (they land on the floor). Kids still loved the game room. These were small issues to us. House was still nice. Other issue tho worth noting is the Only bedroom with a tv is the kids bedroom. House is still 4stars easily. Nice house😊�

Owner's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed the house. There are extra pool tips in the game room on the work bench, but we will be adding new sticks soon. We hope to have you back at Happy Oars.

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!
