Bedford Landings is about Love but we have no Love Letters!
Sad, huh? We have a mousehole. Many places don’t have that! We (almost) have a chicken coop! We have a dumb waiter, but we have no LOVE Letters! Maybe that will be our project next year!
Our Bed & Breakfast is located at beautiful Smith Mountain Lake. Known as the Jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains, we are nestled between mountain ranges and a 22,000 acre lake. Smith Mountain Lake has LOVE Letters! And we hear that the City of Bedford (our county seat) is getting LOVE letters!
Smith Mountain Lake’s LOVE letters are featured on the cover of the 2017 Smith Mountain Lake Visitor’s Guide. Local photographer (and fun friend!) Jen Chaconas took the official LOVE letters photo on the cover of the Visitor’s Guide.
What are LOVE letters? Maybe you have seen some of the larger than life-sized letters spelling out “LOVE” around Virginia. They are intended to be a tourist attraction but also to carry out the theme that Virginia is for lovers! The latest installment is at Chincoteague Island. I LOVE, LOVE this one!
And the one in Lynchburg, VA is way cool! Lynchburg is just 45 minutes from Bedford Landings.
We just learned that there is even a Love Letters map! Wouldn’t that be a fun excursion to photograph as many of the LOVE letters as you could visit?
So even though we don’t have LOVE Letters (yet!) we are all about LOVE, escapes, get aways, good eating, fun, lake life, and more! So visit the LOVE letters, share the love, and enjoy the beautiful spring!
