COUPLES RETREAT AT BERNARDS LANDING - LAKEFRONT

Moneta Condo Rental Photos and Description

1BR Lakefront Vacation Rental Smith Mountain Lake, Moneta, Virginia USA

Our lakefront condo is located at Bernard's Landing which is considered the premier resort on Smith Mountain Lake. The resort received numerous Platinum awards voted on by readers of The Laker and The Roanoker magazines including 'best place to stay.' Conveniently located with great amenities including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, several sandy beaches, tennis, a fitness center, two hot tubs, an award winning waterfront gourmet restaurant, waterfront Tiki bar lounge, marina, boat ramp, and boat docks. Our spacious ground floor unit has sliding glass doors across the entire back of the condo, allowing for beautiful panoramic lake views. Unlike many other rentals that are strictly for investment purposes and rarely used by their owners, we visit our condo quite frequently and we go the extra mile to keep our 'retreat' very clean, well maintained and comfortable for ourselves and our guests (see online guest book.) You will not want to leave this vacation 'home away from home.'

Our condo is in excellent condition and very clean. We've taken great care to thoughtfully furnish it for ourselves and our guests. Since we purchased our condo a few years ago, we have purchased all new living room furniture including: new sleeper sofa with an upgraded queen-size mattress, swivel rocker recliner, and 27-inch stereo TV and entertainment center. The paint colors, pictures, and accessories create a relaxing 'British West Indies' vacation look and feel inside. The living area also offers a wood-burning fireplace if you want to add another element of romance to your getaway. The spacious bedroom includes a new flat screen TV, new bedding, and all new bedroom furniture. We receive lots of guest compliments on our luxurious Sealy Posturepedic pillow-top mattress.

The condo is equipped with two TVs with cable, DVDs/VCR, iPod speaker dock, and CD player. Bring your movie/music collection or enjoy some of ours. Other entertainment items include board games, cards, books, magazines, and two tennis rackets. The full size kitchen is equipped with a new full-size refrigerator, oven, new dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, and all kitchen accessories. We provide a list of dining establishments too if interested. A washer/dryer, iron and full-size ironing board are also provided. Linens, towels, and paper products are included too. Water activities at Smith Mountain Lake include power boating, canoeing, sailing, para sailing, swimming, fishing, water skiing, wake boarding, and jet skiing. There's a boat ramp and guest boat slips located right on the resort property. Bring your own watercraft or rent from one of several rental companies (boats, jet skis, kayaks, para sailing, etc.) that make it easy for you to get on the lake.

Optionally, view the lakefront scenery and million dollar homes from the Virginia Dare, a 19th century side paddle wheeler, which offers cruises on the lake. Bernard's Landing is conveniently located a short 10-15 minute drive to the Westlake and Bridgepoint plaza areas where you will find a variety of restaurants, quaint specialty stores, grocery & drug stores, and a movie theater. There is also an excellent restaurant and fun tiki bar (both open year round) at Bernard's Landing just a short walk across the street from the condo. Your vacation to Smith Mountain Lake can be whatever you choose. Relax by the swimming pool, on the lake, or from the patio. If you want to venture out, sightseeing options include wineries, the Smith Mountain Dam Visitors Center, the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Booker T. Washington National Park, Smith Mt. Lake State Park, Transportation Museum and Explore Park in Roanoke, or the Peaks of Otter near the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We just have to say we throroughly enjoyed our stay at Bernard's Landing in your lovely condo. The rooms were just as beautiful as pictured on the website and the furnishings were so comfortable. It was just perfect!... We brought our boat and spent time on the water, visited the local winery, and took in the sights at the SML Dam and the State Park. We feel lucky the accomodations suited us to a "tee" and wanted to let you know we were satisfied guests... We cannot say for sure when we will consider a return visit, but we have no reason to surf the web for other options. We look forward to another visit in the future and will recommend your condo to our friends and family.

A Lovely Getaway!

  • 4 of 5
My hubby and i were looking at the SML area for a possible move and also a much needed time away. We were so glad we found this!!! The condo was very nice, neat, clean and close to everything - very convenient. We decided to rent a boat to explore the lake (Parrot Cove is excellent) and so glad we did. The lake is just gorgeous with the mountains in the background. We were very excited that the courtesy dock was basically just outside the door.
The clubhouse is really nice and just a very short walk with two pools, hot tub/sauna. The outside pool is huge and was very clean. The beach was just perfect, and again, basically just outside the door. Looking at some other places along the lake, their beaches werent as nice as this one.
We had some lovely walks in the evening to check out Bernard's Landing which in itself is a beautiful place and kept up very well.
If you are looking for things to do, there is a LOT in the area in a very short drive away. So if you have some not so nice weather, or just want to do something different you have restaurants, shopping, mini golf and historic attractions very close by. And its a beautiful drive too.
Just want to thank the owners for the lovely accomodations. They are wonderful to rent from, get back to you almost immediately, and are willing to work with you. I would definitely come back here again. I have nothing but positive things to say about this place and the owners, and Bernard's Landing in general. Thank you for allowing us to share your lovely home!

Owner's Response: Thanks for posting your great review. I always encourage our guests to get out on a boat and see the lake from the water so it is good to hear that you enjoyed yourselves! I am also glad that we were able to accommodate your early check-in. We are happy to work with our guests on earlier check-in or later check-out times when we do not have back-to-back rentals.

Great condo at SML

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place in excellent condition, great views and an easy walk to the beach area, the pool and the restaurant. It was also very large for two people and could easily hold more.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I rented this condo for a week and had a wonderful time. The condo and resort were clean and well maintained. The clubhouse and amenities were outstanding. The weather was a little chilly, so we didn't get to enjoy the lake (except for the view). We played golf and dined at quite a few delicious restaurants. My wife and I have been married five years and have never taken a vacation without our children. This was the perfect escape. It was a relaxing and peaceful getaway. The resort itself was somewhat secluded, but everything we needed was within a 10 minute drive. The owners were very easy to work with. They responded quickly to all our questions and truly made this stay a great experience. I would recommend this rental to anyone, and we hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to post your review. It was a pleasure dealing with you through the rental process and we are glad that you and your wife enjoyed your much needed alone time together. We agree that our location is very convenient for getting around the lake area. The views are spectacular no matter what the temperature outside and we encourage future guests to come enjoy SML and visit during all seasons of the year. It is a very special place!

All the comforts of home!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful 4 day stay at Couples Retreat!! Sandy has everything you could possibly need in the condo, and it was very comfortable. The view was so nice, that we decided to eat "at home" every night, because our view was better than those at the restaurants! We had a great lunch cruise on the Virginia Dare paddlewheel boat, hiked around, drove to Homestead Creamery for wonderful ice cream and they even sell steaks which we bought for dinner one night. The 1st floor location is terrific, as you can just walk out of the condo to go down to the lake. Also having the grill right there was very nice. Our time spent at SML was relaxing, comfortable and very enjoyable!!
Thank you to Sandy for equipping and caretaking your condo so well! We hope to come down again!!

Home Away from Home- The BEST!

  • 5 of 5
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this condo. The condo provided all of the comforts of home and was super clean! The owner was extremely helpful in providing guidance into the area attractions and was professional in all aspects of setting up the reservation. I will definitely plan on staying at this condo again because it was so nice and comfortable. The property is well maintained and the view was great! I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for quality property and excellent customer service. I had a wonderful visit and look forward to returning soon!
