We only stayed one night but wish we could have stayed much longer. What more can we say that hasn't already been said by all of the other reviewers except to reiterate the overwhelming beauty and comfort of the house, the kindness of the hosts, the wonderful breakfast and great views. Karen and Jack built Bedford Landings as a B&B and definitely found their calling. Every detail is well thought out, right down to the delightful holiday background music. Bedford Landings is highly recommended for anyone staying in the SML area.
We feel so lucky that we discovered Bedford Landings. Karen and Jack are the perfect hosts: very friendly and welcoming, yet comfortably left us to our own devices as well. We entered their beautiful home to see a roaring fire welcoming us. The rooms are beautifully decorated; the beds (and especially sheets!) very comfortable. Jack and Karen are greats sources of information about Smith Mountain Lake, which they generously shared with us over a delicious breakfast. We wish we could have stayed longer!
Coming all the way from California, we were looking for a nice place to celebrate my husband's birthday while visiting our college daughter. Karen and Jack exceeded our expectations and our 4 day stay was amazing! They go out of their way to make your stay everything you want it to be, whether quiet and relaxing or busy seeing all the local sights. They are super connected to the community and are wonderful resources for things to do and places to eat. We highly enjoyed a couple busy days of hiking and sight seeing as much as the rainy day we spent indoors at the B & B. They have it set up so that you can be in a number of places other than your room if you so wish. You can also go up in an airplane with Jack for a tour of Smith Mountain! The property is so spacious and beautiful, and their attention to detail makes the stay all the more special and enjoyable. Waking up to the most delicious breakfasts I've pretty much ever eaten was also a big highlight. We had a couple dietary restrictions and they went out of their way to accommodate them...don't get me started on their signature coffee and bacon! We loved meeting Karen and Jack (and adorable Bella their sweet dog) and getting to know these very special people. We felt like we were saying goodbye to family and can't wait to return!…
What a wonderful place Karen and Jack have created. Beautiful home, like a ski chalet complete with a 3 story fireplace. Lots of wonderful decks, awesome breakfast! Smith Mountain Lake Park close by, lovely walks. Jack and Karen were excellent hosts, even lit a fire to cheer up a dreary morning👍
We took a team to race at Smith Mountain Lake State Park and stayed at Bedford Landings B&B. Karen, Jack, and Bella were great hosts! The house was amazing and so was breakfast. I would definitely recommend.
