Why Dave and Nancy Davenport chose Moneta

Our property has a beautiful wide-water view of the lake and Smith Mountain. We love our end unit, which offers a very large outdoor deck area and additional windows. We find that the property and water views affords us the ability to relax and get away from it all. At the same time, we enjoy the convenience of West Lake shopping and restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

Onsite amenities include two outdoor pools, an indoor pool, indoor hot tub, exercise room, tennis court, and racquetball court.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your condo is amazing! We have stayed in almost every building at Bernard's Landing and this condo by far is our favorite. We can't wait to share with our friends in July and are discussing requesting reservations for next summer! This is definitely going to be our go-to for future visits to the lake. Thank-you!

The images of the lake and property are exactly the same in person.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and relaxing. Bernard's landing is very calm and peaceful. The condo was great with wrap around decks and awesome views of the lake and mountains. Condo very nice and clean. There is tons of wildlife all around and deer every where you turn. Watched a family feed every morning from the master bedroom. Would highly recommend for all. And don't forget about fishing!!

A Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Things that stand out:

- beautiful lake view

- very clean and bright

- linens and bedding were very comfortable

- I like to cook, and was very pleased to find every type of utensil or dish I needed provided; not something I've found at most vacation rentals, which generally have only the most basic accoutrements

- electric griddle was very helpful, esp since the stove is rather small

- electric grill on the deck was nice to have available and worked well

- Large grocery store only a few miles away

- the convenience dock is great if using a boat

The only downsides were a rather noisy AC vent in the back bedroom, and the fact that it's on the 3rd floor! (That's a lot of steps to carry luggage and groceries up!)

This was our first time at SML, and if we return we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again

Owner's Response: To put a few negative comments in perspective for other travelers: The a/c configuration and proximity to sleeping space is the same as all 3 BR condo loft units in Bernard's Landing. Our unit is 2 year's young and is significantly less noisy than the prior unit (and other units with older a/c). Some have told us they like the white noise it produces. While I agree that the 3rd floor is not the best for carrying items, I believe it is the best for the amount of space (loft), the lake view, and the noise (no footsteps from above). A point of clarification, the lowest level is actually down from ground level which makes the 3rd floor 2.5 flights up.

first family vacation

  • 5 of 5

As a family with a young kids (under 1) this was a GREAT place to stay for our first vacation with then. Bernard's Landing had several pools to choose from and then the lake provided us with paddle boarding adventures!!! The location was awesome - close to stores (if needed) but the view was priceless. Definitely a great place for us and we will be back!!! Thanks to Nancy for always being responsive and thinking of everything for when we arrived (kudos for the baby gates for the kids).

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic stay at the condo, one of our favorite locations. Having a shallow beach close by made life easier with our grandchildren, combined with the indoor and outdoor pools and fitness center made this a perfect fit for our our active family. We swam across the lake each day and my husband was able to kayak each day for some quiet time. Nancy was available to answer all our questions and thought of everything. Highly recommend this condo!

Smith Mountain Lake - Excellent Family Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our wonderful family vacation at Bernard's Landing! It's the perfect spot on the Lake - close enough to everything you need, but at the same time, very relaxing! We took our 4 and 2 year-old daughters for the week and the owner had everything we needed. The condo is very well-appointed and tasteful but comfortable! We loved the deck and the view of the Lake and ate most meals outside.

One of the nicest features was the location - the kids could swim steps from the condo!

We also enjoyed the nearby community beach and park, played mini-golf and had a few casual meals out. However, mostly, we grilled on the lovely deck and just enjoyed the Lake!

The owner provided exceptional customer service and made everything easy for us!

We can't wait to come back next year!
