Seasons Come and Seasons Go!

Posted on October 9, 2018 by Bedfordlandings

Summer was busy at Bedford Landings Bed & Breakfast, but summer is over and we are moving into fall. Many of our summer guests have indicated that they wanted to come back as the leaves were changing. I am not sure when the leaves actually change. It’s all a nature-driven formula where trees adjust their chlorophyll. The length of the day, the changes in temperature, and the rainfall all come into play. Higher elevations change first but according to the Virginia Department of Forestry, our peak season for central Virginia will be October 10-20. Some other sources push this out 5 days since we have still held to warmer temperatures.

At Smith Mountain Lake, the season is extended with special events scheduled into the fall. Make your reservation as soon as you can plan it out! But also consider a Flightseeing airplane ride with Jack over the lake or the Peaks of Otter!

Some of the events include such fun as:

October 12-13, 2018
• Smith Mountain Arts Council Art Show– Bethlehem United Methodist Church
• SML Antique and Classic Boat Show – Mariner’s Landing
Oktoberfest – Westlake Towne Center
