A Word from the Owners

We are proud to call Smith Mountain Lake our home. We truly stand behind the statement that our lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in the country. 

When we left Iowa and moved here in 2000, we had no idea where this adventure would take us. I (Bill) have had my real estate license since 1997 and planned to continue focusing on that here at the lake. However, after helping my parents with their floating dock repairs, a spark was found. Now, Dock Solutions Inc. is celebrating their 22nd year this fall. We are happy to serve the lake and all it's wonderful residents.
