Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Hi, I'm David Philpot and am the owner of Smith Lake Retreat. I've always enjoyed travelling whether across town or over the ocean to unfamiliar countries. Still, I've always relished returning to a familiar spot away from home that was also home to me. At the lake I'm amazed at the clarity and relaxed frame of mind I can achieve, yet also be energized at the same time. I hope you can "Come to Your Best Senses" at Smith Lake Retreat, as many others have before you.

Why the Owner Chose Lewis Smith Lake:
My home is in Birmingham but grew up on the Gulf Coast and have always enjoyed the water, whether fresh or salt. Since Smith Lake is more convenient and one of the cleanest lakes in the U.S. I opted for a lakehome rather than the beach. I realized I couldn't use the house as much as I'd like so I decided to rent and share on a short term basis; with no regrets. I hope you enjoy Smith Lake Retreat and the lake as much as I do with all it has to offer. The house is not a rental but a second home to me, so, welcome to my home. -David Philpot
