About Pam Easter

We are Scott and Pam Easter. We are both Virginia Tech graduates and native Virginian’s. We met while in college and have been married for over twenty years. We have three incredible boys, ages 10 and twin 12 year olds. Scott has a bachelors degree in Civil Engineering and a masters degree in Structural Engineering. Pam has an Interior Design degree and previously owned a real estate title and settlement company at the lake and is very familiar with the area and all it has to offer. Scott is from the eastern part of the state and Pam is from right here in Southwest Virginia. Pam actually grew up on Smith Mountain Lake and developed her love of all things water from her youth. Similarly Scott grew up around the water, albeit saltwater, and also developed a passion for being on the water. We love boating, skiing, and fishing and fishing and fishing. Did I mention fishing? This beautiful home was our personal residence from 2003 until 2015. We custom designed and built (Scott is also a Class A Contractor) our home in 2003 so it reflects a lot of the character traits of family and fun that are integral to our lives. As life goes, Scotts business recently relocated further from SML which in turn required us to relocate our family. It pained us to think of leaving our oasis so instead of selling we decided to share this awesome property with others while maintaining our own ability to use it when possible.

Pam Easter purchased this estate in 2003

Why Pam Easter chose Huddleston

When we moved back to the area in 1998 we knew we wanted to be near the water. The only choice for us was Smith Mountain Lake. The lakes beauty, breadth and charm are unmatched in Southwest Virginia. We looked for sometime before finding our piece of paradise. We had specific requirements of the lot and this one had it all. We wanted decent acreage on the main body of the lake, wide water sunset views, some mature trees, light boat traffic, and space for kids to play. This property had it all and much more. The 1.4 acre property is located in a small eight lot subdivision on a cul-de-sac. The subdivision is only one mile from Parkway Marina which is the terminus of the peninsula that we live on. We are also just two miles away from the beautiful Smith Mountain Lake State Park.

What makes this estate unique

The property starts with the ball field at the top of the property. The ball field is a large flat grassy area ideal for playing ball and all sorts of yard games while maintaining a 180 degree view of the lake. A paved driveway with plenty of car and boat trailer parking leads to our beautiful home. The home was custom designed and built by us in 2003. The home was designed and oriented so that a view of the lake can be seen from most everywhere within it. The character of the inside of the home is one of a lake lodge with its three two way fireplaces, hardwood floors, large open spaces, custom kitchen, incredible entertainment areas and views galore. The main level has a rear screened porch and deck along with a beautiful front porch. The lakeside of the home is nothing short of spectacular. Our home features a large fenced in yard with playground for the kids. The lower patio has large hut tub and covered swing. Beyond the fenced in yard lies beautiful Smith Mountain Lake. Our dock has everything you need. The dock is a covered two slip dock with a large uncovered fixed dock and a floating dock. Our property is located at the main body of SML where the tributaries feeding it merge. The water is deep, clean and pristine for water enthusiasts. Our property is as unique as Smith Mountain Lake itself.

Best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

The home is gorgeous and clean and has everything needed for ages 1-100. We did our family vacations at Nags Head for 20 years. Now everyone wants to return to this home and Smith Mountain Lake! Wouldn't change a thing or offer any recommendations!

Just lovely!!

  • 5 of 5

I will say first that this home was "the" best stocked home (I've been to quite a few) that I've ever had the pleasure of staying in! Thank you, thank you, thank you! To me, with a family the size of ours always have had to take extra pots at least, but here I could have saved a lot of room in my vehicle, because we needed not one thing! I have nothing bad to say at all! Our weekend was great! The room on the inside and out was more than sufficient for large families. Although you have houses on both sides of the house you still felt as if you were secluded. Would definitely love to stay again!

wonderful long weekend

  • 4 of 5

My large family had an amazing extended weekend in this house. It was large enough for our 6 grandchildren and 8 adults and very well equipped. While it was sunny and chilly, we found plenty of fun. The kayak was great and we made good use of the ball field and fire pit. I'm not sure what the lake is like during the summer but it was calm and quiet near the house and some huge fish are swimming near the dock -visible at night because of the light under water. The fenced yard and swing set got lots of use and allowed us to relax and not worry about the children and the water as much. Maybe you could have even more fun in warm weather but we all had a blast.

Perfect Getaway for a Large Family

  • 5 of 5

My extended family stayed in this wonderful home on Smith Mountain Lake recently. The home exceeded our expectations and was perfect for the youngest to the oldest. There was a fenced in backyard with a swing set, slide and sandbox that provided entertainment and safety for the toddler in the group. There was a hot tub, fishing dock, kayak, paddle boat, electronic dart board, 2 kitchens and multiple TVs that provided nonstop entertainment for all of the others. We had a great weekend and look forward to going back.
