This new home sits on a very private point lot with 700 feet of water frontage. It was designed for multiple families with kids. The view is absolutely spectacular with water on 3 sides and views from almost every room in the house. It is roughly 3,000 square feet and has a additional 2,100 square feet of balconies and decks. There are two great rooms, one for the adults and a second for the kids. The upstairs has 20' vaulted ceilings throughout. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. The huge, custom built square table seats 12 for family meals and two additional bar top chairs are at the kitchen counter top. For outdoor cooking, there is a large, high end, gas grill and a wood burning smoker.
There are two masters with one upstairs and the second down. The third and fourth bedrooms are downstairs. The game room includes a pool table, air hockey, ping pong, games and puzzles. We have a flat screen tv on the main level with Directv. We do have wireless DSL, if you need to connect your laptop.
The outside balconies and decks wrap three sides of the house. The lighted walkway leads down to the enormous three slip boat house and swim platform. The water slide is connected to city water for hours of fun in the lake. A deck box is available with life preservers for all sizes. Pontoon boat rentals are available upon request for an additional charge. You are also welcome to bring your own boat. There is also a trampoline with safety nets for the kids and adventurous adults.
The boat house includes an open slip for 1 boat and additional side docking for 3-4 more.
Smith Lake is rated as the third cleanest lake in the country. You must see it to believe it. There are 500 miles of shoreline with over 21,200 acres of water. There is fantastic swimming, fishing, boating and skiing. Much of the lake is in the Bankhead National Forest with miles of undisturbed wooded shores and spectacular views.
We are located very close to the Smith Lake dam and is also near Duskin Point Marina (great for refueling and a quick snack). It is 55 minutes from Birmingham, 2 hours from Nashville and 4 hours from Memphis.

Stayed a little over two weeks at Family Paradise, rental as described great vacation. Fully equipped with everything needed to make your stay comfortable. We loved the boat dock with easy access and walk to the water. The owners are great and take care of their property, would rent again.

We had nine women at this home for 4 nights - a long girlfriend weekend. It is just perfect for this type of event or for families. The home is LOVELY and very well equipped. The location is so beautiful and peaceful. Gorgeous sunsets and beautiful sunrises were enjoyed everyday. I so appreciate the Haskins' generosity in sharing their home with others. They are the nicest people to work with!

This House is Great. We have rented several homes on Smith Lake, and looked at several others. Family Paradise truly lives up to its name. It is by far the best house we have vacationed in. Great view,close enough to the big water and Duskin Point to be convenient, but far enough away to be quiet and calm.We have enjoyed our stay here 5 times since 2008. It really is the next best thing to owning on Smith Lake Have recommendedt o other friends several times.Hope to visit again in 2012!

Fantastic Lake House!
Fantastic Lake House!
I rented this house with family in August 2010, and was just blown away by it! The house is perfectly situated and appointed and I can't imagine finding a vacation rental that is nicer. The house is new and in perfect condition, and was impeccably clean. The swim platform and boat dock are fantastic. We rented a pontoon boat from Duskin Point Marina, which the Marina delivered right to the dock, and we had a great time tooling around the lake. We will definitely be back to rent this house again. Thank you to the owners for sharing your lovely lovely house!

What a beautiful place for a family vacation!
What a beautiful place for a family vacation!
We stayed March 19, 2010 to March 25, 2006. The home was beautiful. There was only 4 of us, but there was pleanty of room for 14 people. The pictures do not do this place any justice. The kids loved playing ping pong, pool, and air hockey. They just laughed at me when I told them that I used to be a pinpong champ, that is until they saw my serve. The look on Kyla's face after my first serve was PRICELESS! Then they just stood there with a dumb look on their faces like what just happened. The ball was past them befor they could even move. I still had it after 20 years.They said do it again Dad! So I did and they could not believe thier eyes. After about 3 days they could get a paddle on it. I just loved it. We never had a chance to miss a TV set. A perfect place to show the kids what game skill the old folks still have. We would love to stay here again!!!

Our family spent a great week in June of 2008 at Family Paradise. The beautiful home and lake view was exceeded only by the very hospitable owners. It was great!!!!!

Our family had a wonderful time at this lovely property. The house was beautiful, and the lake absolutely gorgeous. The swim deck, the water slide, the boat dock were perfect for our needs. It is a perfect place for skiing and tubing. I highly recommend it.

About the owner: My wife, Shannon and I have a passion for marriage and family minstry. Family Paradise was built with a vision of drawing families closer, creating life long memories; a place of rest and inspiration. In Spring, Summer and Fall we cater to family vacations and reunions. In winter, we focus on church retreats, including, mens, womens, marriage, youth, young adults & church leadership planing. We live in Bimingham, AL with our 4 children, Sammy, Megan, David & Emily.
Why the Owner Chose Lewis Smith Lake:
Smith Lake is one of the cleanest and most beautiful lakes in the country. It is conviently located 1 hour from birmingham and Huntsville, 2 hours from Nashville and 4 hours from Memphis. The rural setting provides the perfect setting to relax and enjoy some quality family time.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Surrounded on 3 sides by water, Family Paradise offers an amazing lake experience. The gentle sloping lot minimizes the number of steps to the water. The house was desiged specifically for larger groups including beds in bedrooms for 14 and a huge kitchen table for 12. The kitchen is stocked with pots, pan and appliances to serve these large groups. The dock and swim platform are huge with fun for all ages. We also provide an open slip if you need to dock your owned or rented boat.
