Smith Mountain Lake is a great retreat from the world. Slow-paced with good restaurants and wineries all close to Roanoke, Lynchburg, Rocky Mt. and Bedford. Beautiful fall foliage. Close to Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia Tech and other colleges.
Many of my guest book to look at real estate. I am within minutes of Bernard's Landing.
Due to recent policy changes I can no longer accept boats. CRAZY HORSE MARINA is less a ten minute drive. They have covered boat slips for approx. $20 a day.
