The actual house was wonderful. The house was great, plenty of room and a wonderful view. The actual trip was great. The experience after we left was not so much. We cleaned the house and left it as we found the house. After a day or two arriving home I began to receive text messages that we damaged the house and that we may not receive our deposit back. I would completely understand if there were major damages, but the pictures that were sent to me were slightly blown out of proportion. A dime size scrape on and wall, a door stopper that was bent, and a oven that had supposedly had burnt grease on it that required an entirely new oven. I became irritated with the owners agenda to keep the entire deoposit; I then responded for them to perform the assesment, use the deposit and send me the remainder. I have stayed at Smith Lake three times now and this has been my worst experience.

Owner response: We are sorry you feel this way about your experience after leaving StarStruck. We strive to keep a clean and well maintained house and rely on our guest to help us by being responsible. When our clean crew sent us pictures and comments about the condition of the house after your stay we were in complete shock! As I stated in my text messages to you earlier that I would respond with my assessment of damages at my soonest. Therefore, after assessing the damages this weekend, your security deposit minus the damages was sent out today via US mail.

The pictures really do not do this beautiful home justice. A good distance to town and back, so be sure you have all you need. Watch out for the wildlife when driving this area. Our family had a great time. The boat ramp was close and the dock was nice. It had all the amenities you needed, inside and out. I only wish the TV with the Satalite was upstairs so we all could sit as a family near the kitchen in the late evenings. The owners were very helpful and quick to answer any questions we might have. We will definately be back to the Star Struck!

Owner response: Thank you for staying with us Chris/Crystal. We are so pleased to hear your stay was enjoyable at StarStruck! We have tried to best describe our "piece of heaven" as being off the beaten path in our VRBO listing on the front end - I think we've done pretty well to depict our location as "secluded" of which our cabin is tucked within the Bankhead Wilderness on Smith Lake. This is one of many reasons what lead us to this particuliar destination on Smith Lake to build our lake cabin. If you love nature and wildlife the StarStruck is for you !! Again, thank you for staying with us and we hope you'll book again soon.
My wife and I were looking for place to get away for a relaxing weekend and happened upon this great place in VRBO searches. We currently live close to a lake and have a ski boat and jet ski that we use regularly. So we are able to get the house booked the day before leaving and loaded up with the jet ski for a weekend away from everything. The house is as nice as described and the lake is amazingly clear and smooth. It did rain the first day, but cleared off in the evening and was nice Saturday and Sunday. We took advantage of the nice weather and went sightseeing on the lake just cruising each way looking at all the incredible homes and interesting cliffs. At lunch and dinner we would spend time at the covered gazebo grilling, listening to music, and chilling in the hammock. We had a great time (just what we needed) and hope to go back soon with the family. Thanks Jaye for getting us in on short notice we really enjoyed our stay.

Our 2nd stay at Star Struck. We had another great time. The setting is perfect for what we are looking for in a get-away. House has everything you could ask for. And the lake and the view are as beautiful in the winter as the summer. Will return again soon, we hope.

Owner response: Hello David & Angie, We are so pleased to hear your stay was enjoyable on your "winter break". It is indeed our little get away that offers both privacy and most importantly the "VIEWS" in both winter & summer as you indicated is just priceless. You guys chose the best time of year to hit the waterfalls for some hiking/adventure. Once again thank you for booking with us again, and we look forward to your next stay soon in the future.

We had a great time and will definitely be back. The location, though a little out of the way, was well worth the trip. Our stay was exactly what we were looking for. The house was very nice and comfortable and the outdoor amenities were awesome. We just could not get enough of the lake and the view. Our girls (dogs) loved it too. Thanks for the opportunity to rent the boat. It allowed for a different perspective of the water and nature in the area. All in all we got more than we expected from looking at the VRBO pictures. We love the beach in Pensacola, but Lewis-Smith Lake if fast becoming our second home. Looking forward to visiting again, soon we hope.

Owner response: David & Angie we are so pleased to hear that your vacation was well worth your trip from FL. Our pictures presently on VRBO does not give our place justice as we need to update to showcase all "amenities". Yes.. we may be off the beaten path- but if solitude, peace, and quiet is what you seek-our lake house definitely offers that ! The western side of the lake we are on is the most beautiful in my opinion as the scenery is unlike any others with all the high bluffs, National Forest, and of course great fishing !!! Thank you for booking with us and we hope you'll book again soon. Jaye

The house was beautiful, very clean, and very comfortable to stay at for our family. The part of the lake that the home is on is ideal. The access to boat ramp was good. The owner was always accessible by phone or email and always answered our questions or concerns very quickly. Extremely cordial and polite to us. The house is fully stocked with everything we needed. We enjoyed our trip very much and would recommend to anyone and hope we can go again.

We stayed at Star Struck for six nights and I wish we could have stayed 60. The property was better than what we had expected and the location on the water was ideal. It was definately the perfect way to spend this old man's birthday. This was our first time renting a house on the lake and it was nice not having to deal with the boat launching everyday. The covered boat dock was the perfect place to sit and relax while the kids played in the crystal clear water next to the dock. I highly remomend this property and I know if you stay here you will feel the same.

Why the Owner Chose Double Springs:
The clarity/crisp water quality you will not find anywhere better than Lewis Smith Lake. The water is just gorgeous resembling emerald green color as this is what drew us to this lake from out of state. We live in Atlanta- as we commute 4 1/2 hrs to our lake home at Lewis Smith Lake. It's worth the drive to us to escape for some downtime and visit our 'little peace of heaven' .
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peace, Relaxation, Remote, Bankhead National Forest being across our street 50 yards away !
