The Coves at Smith Mountain Lake is honored to host two new, world-class musical events to benefit SML Good Neighbors, Inc. and 5 Points Music Foundation.
SML Good Neighbors Is Proud To Announce the Coves Amphitheater 2021 Season Lineup at Smith Mountain Lake and SW Virginia’s Newest Outdoor Venue
Smith Mountain Lake Good Neighbors is proud to announce the 2021 Season lineup at The Coves Amphitheater in Union Hall, VA. The Amphitheater features an inspired timber truss built stage overlooking Smith Mountain Lake in Union Hall, VA. Situated on an 89-acre site with sweeping views and spectacular vistas, guests will discover a special place that emphasizes nature’s beauty through design and strategic investments emphasizing its commitment to protecting the environment.
SML Good Neighbors is excited to present these shows, while also strengthening their role in the lives of many children throughout our region. Net proceeds from upcoming events at the Coves Amphitheater will go to support their mission of developing ‘Good Neighbor skills and values in children through programs that nourish, educate and support them while providing life-changing experiences for college students through leadership development internships.’
In sharing her goals for these events, SML Good Neighbors Exec. Director Lisa Lietz remarks, “SML Good Neighbors is a united community effort. It is our supporters (donors, volunteers, staff and families) whose altruistic attitudes shape Good Neighbors’ culture to be one of lifting and love. The community has always shared in the joys and challenges together that we face.”
Gary Jackson has played a key role in supporting the spirit of this idea. “Our mission is simple: to provide aid and support to those in need through world class concert experiences. When you purchase a ticket to a Coves event, you can think of it as a donation to help the hungry in our area, or to provide mentor support for children in need, among other SML Good Neighbors Programming, all while simply enjoying a day or evening of music with us.”

About The Coves
Nestled in the peaceful, natural setting of southwestern Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, The Coves at Smith Mountain Lake was created under a single guiding ideal: To provide all the benefits of a waterfront retreat while preserving the sense of community that we all desire.
To do this, the Coves features a solar powered, tech-friendly, outdoor venue that instantly connects to miles of hiking trails winding through open meadows, deep woods, and incredible vistas - all on a clear mountain lake in Southwest Virginia. Coves mountain retreat home and cottage packages are available from Mountain Retreat Living, the premier home division of Southern Heritage Homes.
Music event guests are encouraged to read our faq and arrive early in order to experience all this beautiful new venue has to offer. Located only 45 minutes from nearby Roanoke, 2 hours from Tri-Cities, NC, and 4 hours from DC, the Coves is a private community in the heart of nature's beauty with a dedicated emphasis on protecting and nurturing the environment while providing a strong foundation for a thriving community.

As The Coves continues to evolve, we are looking at our views from the community as inspiration for enhancing our amenities. Here is the latest view as well as enhancements to a Coves pavilion.
A Coves neighbor, Southlake Spa and Salt Room, recently held a yoga session at The Coves overlooking Smith Mountain Lake. The perfect background for a peaceful session!
The newest addition to The Coves family is nearing completion! This Southern Living inspired home is the ultimate in luxury waterfront living. This gorgeous waterfront home was designed for comfortable, yet impressive, living. Careful consideration was given to the natural environment when designing this home and choosing finish details. Timber accents and earth tone siding are a natural fit among these rolling hills and tall trees. The floor plan thoughtfully arranges all living areas and bedrooms to allow for beautiful water views of Smith Mountain Lake. Indoor living easily transitions to exterior living with over 1,000 square feet of covered porches. Stone and wooden pathways blend into the hillside, connecting the home to a private covered dock and an extensive community trail system.
We are now in full fall mode in southwest Virginia at The Coves on Smith Mountain Lake. Many exciting things are happening with our next home, The Ridgeview. Excavation for the foundation has already taken place, and on Oct. 18 the pre-cast concrete basement walls by Ideal Building Systems were set into place by crane.
Time savings, efficiency and accuracy are a few of the reasons why pre-cast concrete basement walls by Ideal Building Systems were used for tis home. Pre-cast concrete wallsare built off-site in a controlled environment using formed molds. The concrete is strengthened with fiber reinforcement and rebar and then cured and affixed steel studs and insulation for a total T-Value of R-23.
Ideal pre-cast concrete walls carry between 5,000+pounds PSI (per square inch), whereas conventional, concrete-poured walls carry between 3,000 and 3,500 PSI. All walls are certified by a third-party engineer, UL fire-rated and are vapor- and damp-resistant. The various concrete panels are transported to the construction site, lifted by a crane and set into place. This systemized method is in sharp contrast to standard block or poured foundations.
Pre-cast concrete walls do not require concrete footers to be poured. Instead, compacted crushed stone is used, which provides for a strong base and provides for better weight distribution and improved drainage. Almost all roads and railway lines use crushed stone as a base, both of which support far more concentrated loads than the foundation of your home
The builder of The Ridgeview, DA Peters of Southern Heritage Homes, said Ideal pre-cast wall systems are the best solutions for basements. The strength of the panels, dimensional accuracy and consistent delivery schedule, as well as having the insulated foundation already prepped for interior finish, are the reasons he prefers Ideal pre-cast walls.
