Smith Mountain Lake Cinematographer’s Paradise

What About Bob? | Smith Mountain Lake 1991

Although you may not be a fan of Bill Murray or Richard Dreyfuss and their slapstick antics, “What About Bob” is the movie that put Smith Mountain Lake on the map as Southwest Virginia’s Premier Vacation Destination.

The movie setting is supposed to be on  Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire, but yes, “What About Bob” was filmed in our very own downtown Moneta, and right here on Smith Mountain Lake in 1991. There are several scenes showing Smith Mountain and the dam….. like this one…”I’m sailing…”

But it was also this scene that made any view of Smith Mountain a million dollar view when it comes to real estate…. The coveted view can be seen from both Bedford and Franklin County VA, but it holds a higher price tag to be sure!

So, When “Lake Effects” –our 2011 Smith Mountain Lake Movie, starring Jane Seymour–hits the silver screen near you, make sure you tell your friends that that is where you are looking for your vacation home!
