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 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 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.

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.
