Our completely renovated lakefront condo offers gorgeous wide water and mountain views. You can't get any closer or have easier access to the water than with our ground floor unit. Bernard's Landing is considered the premier resort on Smith Mountain Lake and has received numerous Platinum awards voted on by readers of The Laker and The Roanoker magazines including 'best place to stay.' Conveniently located (10 minutes from Westlake Center) with great amenities including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, several sandy beaches, tennis, a fitness center, hot tub, an award winning waterfront gourmet restaurant and bar, marina, boat ramp, and boat docks. Unlike many other rentals that are strictly for investment purposes and rarely used by their owners, we stay in our condo regularly during all seasons and we go the extra mile to keep our unit very clean, well maintained, stocked, and comfortable for ourselves and our guests. 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, we have completely remodeled it with new carpeting, tile, new kitchen appliances, cabinets, and granite counter tops, new doors, lighting, paint, new master bath, and all new furniture and accessories. The paint colors, pictures, and accessories create a relaxing vacation look and feel inside. The living area also offers a gas fireplace.
We spent the last few summers living in this condo and are just beginning to rent it out during the summer of 2012. Our condo is extremely well stocked since we made sure we would have everything that we needed and all the conveniences of our full time home while we were there!
Since this is a new listing, we do not have many reviews yet. Please look at the reviews for another Bernard's property that we have been renting for the past 10 years where we have 28 positive reviews from guests. HomeAway #21584 Couples Retreat at Bernard's Landing.

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 bar (both open year round) at Bernard's Landing just a short walk from the condo. Your vacation to Smith Mountain Lake can be whatever you choose.
