The Smith Mountain Lake Home Tour

The Smith Mountain Lake Charity Home Tour is a fundraiser to support various critical services in the area. Since it began over 25 years ago, the tour has raised nearly $4 million for local charities! This is a fantastic event. Whether you’re looking for inspiration for your own living space or simply love watching those “home improvement” shows, you’ll love getting a look at these impeccable houses.

There will be eight homes open to the public for the SML Charity Home Tour. You can purchase tickets online. Make sure you purchase your ticket as soon as possible so you can get the best deal! You only need to purchase one ticket per person. That ticket is good for all three days of the tour, and for one visit per house. This means you can take your time touring the home. While you tour, feel free to ask the homeowners questions about construction, remodeling, or decorating!

The tour benefits eight charities. They are Adult Care Center of Virginia, AGAPE Center, Bedford Pregnancy Center, Franklin County YMCA, Free Clinic of Franklin County, Henry Fork Service Center, SML Good Neighbors, and STEP, Inc. The value of each of these charities cannot be overstated. The SML Home Tour is doing amazing work by supporting these incredible organizations.
