The second bedroom has a queen size bed w/mounted TV and children’s toys and books for our younger visitors. A second large bathroom is found in the hallway.

A cook’s kitchen offers all amenities needed to cook a sumptuous meal with indoor and outdoor dining spaces on one of the most spectacular decks offered in Bernard’s Landing. A vitamix blender and wine cooler add to the kitchen amenities. We love to cook, and we make sure we have everything we need to cook delicious meals. We try to keep our pantry stocked with staples and a wide variety of spices. Paper towels and trash bags are also provided.
Our end unit offers incredible views from the Kitchen/Great room area. A queen size air mattress for over-flow guests in the living room along with two top end leather recliners and bar dining at the kitchen make for great spaces for entertaining. A 62” HDK, Smart TV with a sound bar provide awesome picture and sound for your viewing and listening pleasure. Cable TV, Netflix, and Pandora – sometimes it’s hard to leave the condo! Of course, Wi-Fi is also included!
Courtesy docks w/electricity and water for your boat are directly in front of the condo. Smith Mountain Lake is Virginia’s Premier fishing lake! Fish right off our docks or long shoreline at the resort, rent a boat, or charter a fishing trip. A small beach area with grills is also located by the condo. One of the two outdoor pools is located just behind the condo. We also have 3 kayaks (2 of them are fishing, sit upon kayaks) for our guests to use. Games, toys for indoor use and beach toys for outdoor play are provided. We also offer a basketball, tennis, pickle ball and racquetball racquets and balls for our guests to take advantage of all of the amenities at Bernard's Landing! NO need to worry about packing all your toys and beach towels for your family's vacation!
Possibly our favorite part of the condo and Bernard’s Landing! We have a corner unit which means we have the largest deck that wraps around the corner for two sided viewing of the incredible beauty at this location. During the warmer months, we love to watch the escapades of the migrating hummingbirds dancing around our feeders. I have photo files full of spectacular sunrises, rainbows and full moons rising over the mountains and water taken from our deck! Glider chairs, zero gravity chairs, and bar height swivel chairs at the pub dining table on the deck provide plenty of comfort while sipping a glass of wine enjoying the view. Being a corner unit, we seem to always have a gentle breeze across the deck during hot summer days.
At Bernard’s Landing Resort, our guests have access to all of these wonderful amenities so that there is something for everyone year-round! We chose Bernard’s Landing as there is no other condominium/townhome community at the lake that offers such a great array of amenities. The beauty and convenient location were the added bonuses.

About Teri Phipps
We purchased a property in Asheville in 2008 to offer as a vacation rental. The business has been far more rewarding than we had imagined, so we decided to add a property closer to home. We LOVE Smith Mtn. Lake, but especially Bernard's Landing! The permanent residents, the folks who have owned a condo as a getaway since the 1980's, the summer guests - all are warm and welcoming! We feel right at home here and work to make sure our guests feel the same way! We are always working to add value to our rental with improvements to the property and the addition of kayaks for our guests to use. My husband is recently retired from his "day job" so he can devote more time to his band(s). I no longer own a farm or livestock and I'm no longer flipping houses - so all of my attention is devoted to managing vacation rentals and volunteer commitments.
Teri Phipps purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Teri Phipps chose Gills Creek
Asheville (location of other vacation rental) is a 6 hour drive from our home in Richmond and we were looking for something a bit closer with water and we settled on Smith Mountain Lake. We are so glad we did! The location of this property is at Bernard's Landing which we feel offers the best in amenities of any resort around the lake. Great winter amenities as well as summertime amenities for the family. Bernard's Landing also boats THE BEST RESTAURANT at the Lake in The Landing Restaurant. Cooking classes on Sundays over the slower winter months help to seal Bernard's Landing as a year round destination!

We offer 3 kayaks for our guests to use as well as 2, thick foam floats. Beach towels, pool toys, life vests, bath towels and top-quality sheets/bedding are included in the posted rate.
