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.

Why Angie & Christopher Brement chose Huddleston

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...

Perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Even in March, this was the perfect weekend getaway for our family. The lovely house, wel-stocked kitchen, and spacious deck was a great place to hang out and spend time with each other. Pool and ping pong were fun when we were cold and needed something to do. We had fun kayaking and would love to come back sometime when we can swim. Owners were wonderful to work with and thought of all the details. We’d definitely do this again!

Family Holiday Stay

This property was exactly right for our 12 adult family! Wonderful games and great common areas. Nice sized kitchen. Very Comfortable beds!!! Dishwasher electronics need servicing since the panel would not light. I will recommend this property to friends.

Perfect for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home for the Thanksgiving holiday. There were 6 adults and 3 teenagers. We chose this home for the 2 King Bedrooms which were both well appointed. The other 3 bedrooms were also set up nicely especially the bunk room which the boys loved. We also liked that the house had 2 living areas even though we seemed to always crowd into one for games, puzzles and family time. But there are two and plenty of room to spread out. All generations enjoyed the game room where we spent a lot of time. We played our version of the Olympics and my dad was happy to win! My mom enjoyed that she could cook the Thanksgiving dinner but still felt connected to everyone in the family room. We all commented that the house was set up in a way that just made us all want to be together. We have all mentioned wanting to return since we didn't get a chance to really enjoy the lake other than the gorgeous views. We loved walking through the neighborhood and enjoying the beautiful location and weather. Lastly, Angie was super responsive and a terrific owner.

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.
