The main attraction is 'the lake'. If you love incredible lake views, this is the place for you. In addition to soaking up the view and the sun rays, there is swimming and fishing available just a few feet away. Bring your boat, canoe, kayak, tube and/or jet ski to have more mobility on the water. Grill your steaks, hamburger and/or hotdogs on the deck while enjoying the fabulous view. If you must eat out, there is limited dining available in Arley (Mexican and American) and Houston (Cajun) but both Jasper and Cullman have considerable dinning choices.
Year Purchased: 2006
About: I (Barbara) grew up on this lake and later moved to Birmingham for work related reasons, but I always wished to return to the lake to be closer to family. My husband (Rogers) made that dream possible. I graduated from Curry High School and Bevill State Business School. We currently live not far up the lake from the cabin location, but have lived in this cabin as well. It is a great place to enjoy the lake view and water sports, and to walk 'the loop'.
Why Arley: This home has an incredible view of Smith Lake from almost every room in the house. It has everything one would want for a great lake getaway weekend or extended stay. It it conveniently located on the main body of the water between the Dam and Duncan Bridge (between Rock and Dismal Creek). It is a prefect place for family fun and fishing. It was decorated with an emphasis on giving guest the feeling that the owners love this lake and the great outdoors.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Few homes have a lake view as special as this home provides. It is on the main body of the lake allowing easy access by boat to many favor places on the lake. But even though it is on the main body of a sometime rather busy lake, it is unique in the privacy one feels here. We remodeled just a few years ago with emphasis on making it a cozy lake cottage which expresses our love for this lake and the great outdoors with all of the comforts of home.
