The Venue


After countless weekend trips and thousands of miles driven, once we stumbled upon Bernard’s Landing we knew we had found our venue.

With its 22,000 acres of sparking fresh water and 500 miles of shoreline, Smith Mountain Lake is a magnificent playground for swimming, boating, fishing, or just relaxing. Virtually surrounded by water, Bernard’s Landing is a 70 acre resort that offers lush green spaces, panoramic views of the lake, and year-round activities for the entire family.

We hope you’ll take advantage of this beautiful venue and stay a few days – or turn it into a mini-vacation.

Check out some of the activities on and off the property and some great photos below!
