The Travel Bloggers.com has ranked Smith Mountain Lake as one of the top ten houseboat lakes in North America! According to the article, the lakes chosen were those that “tend to be large enough for you to find a private cove, but small enough that you are close to any amenity that you would need while houseboating.” This ranking is just one more bit of proof that Smith Mountain Lake really does have it all! Are you unsure how to get started in houseboating? A great place locally for boat rentals is Parrot Cove Boat Rentals and Sales. The folks there can rent you a houseboat for a different type of vacation on the Lake. Of course, they can also provide you with a number of other craft, including pontoon boats, fishing boats, and even kayaks. So give them a call at (540) 721-5363, or visit their website for more info. And then get out and enjoy our top-ranked Lake!
