There are many features at Bernard's Landing that make it a great entertaining place to be, however the main feature is where it is located on the lake. It is the centerpiece, hands down, no argument. Every step you take here within the 78 acres is spectacularly beautiful. Often when people like yourself are coming here to stay, they get in a little late the first night, and the sun has long gone down. The next morning they get up and are mesmerized just looking out the window, then they end up sitting on their decks, coffee in hand, still in pj's for hours, no television, radio, cell phones, just looking at the incredible view.
Smith Mountain Lake covers 22,000 acres, many winding, spinning little rivers, complete the lake. Smith Mountain itself is 7 miles long, and in its crevice is the dam that was built in the early 1960's.
