Where to Stay

Eat Well, Sleep Well, Relax and Play: Bedford has it all

Surrounded by the glory of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Bedford offers adventures in dining, outdoor activities, historical explorations and cultural experiences as well as a wide array of lodging to suit any taste. Getting here is easy — we are between two airports in Roanoke and Lynchburg, Amtrak is just one-half hour away with the Smart Way Bus Connector, and we are right off U.S. 460 with nearby Interstate 81 as a main route. If you are traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway, we’re milepost 86 at the Peaks of Otter.

From a lodge on the Blue Ridge Parkway to a houseboat on Smith Mountain Lake, the choices are endless. Whether it’s a historic inn, mountain cabin or bed and breakfast that reflects the stories of past centuries, modern lodges and hotels, golf resorts, lake houses or condos with all the amenities, or simply a beautiful campsite – take your pick in Bedford.
