Recent Lewis Smith Lake reviews

  • The original paradise cove

    "We have stayed at the original paradise cove twice and plan to make it our vacation place at smith lake whenever we visit. The home is close to grocery store, video store, subway and dollar store which meets all our needs during our stay. The house is cozy and comfortable and fully stocked with anything you might need. The boat dock handles our boat very well and we love to sit on it late in the day to watch a beautiful sunset. Rose and Ray Roberts are attentive to all your needs and very nice folks. We leave very rested and truly feel like we have been on vacation. We highly recommend the original paradise cove located on the Jasper side of smith lake, you will not be disappointed!"

  • Very relaxing once settled

    "As long as your not pulling a boat the place is great. If your towing a boat or trailor good luck and watch out for the trees. The swimming area was a big hit with my nine year old daughter, I don't think she ever noticed the eighty something steps from the back porch to the water."

  • Excellent accomodations, superb facilities, great views

    "Our stay at the Crutchfield's lakehouse was nothing short of spectacular. We had family and friends going and coming all week, and everyone had nothing but positive things to say about this place. Going around Smith Lake, you immediately notice that many homes are high up on bluffs or steep hills and require long walks up and down stairs to access the water. This home has a nice, gently sloping lawn right down to the dock. Speaking of the dock, there is a generously sized swim platform with 2 wooden rocking chairs and a wooden bench swing, plus a table and 4 chairs. If you don't have a boat, it's a great spot for hanging out by the water, UNLESS it's a major summer holiday in which case swimming is just plain dangerous (see pros/cons). I just thought I'd list some pros and cons of this property. Pros: -Great lawn, wonderful view of lake from 3 of the 7 bedrooms, each with its own balcony. -Spacious kitchen with large table -Pool table, sound system, large TVs with satellite -Swim deck -Ice machine -Huge back deck, again with an awesome view -Tons of parking room for vehicles and boat trailer -Comfortable sleeping arrangements Cons: -Located on a main point of the lake. When the lake is busy, boat traffic comes much closer than is courteous or safe and the wakes rock the dock violently. This only happened on Labor Day, the rest of the week was calm. If you want to do a lot of swimming with small children on a summer holiday, a property located in a protected cove may be more suitable but might not offer the great view. -Owner's boat/jet skis are dry docked in the slips, so be sure to bring plenty of dock bumpers if you bring or plant to rent a boat. It's not ideal for using your own boat if you don't want it rubbing during your stay. High boat traffic days would intensify potential for damage. -Single oven in kitchen can make meal prep for 20 people a challenge. -6 of 7 main bedrooms require travelling a long flight of stairs. Elderly would get tired. Every property is not everything to everyone. This property maximizes common space and encourages time spent together with a large group present. Children have plenty of space to go do their thing on the basement level or in the loft in the main floor living room. I'd go again in a heartbeat. Last, but not least, Mrs. Crutchfield is a pleasure to deal with. She's very responsive by e-mail and text. Thanks for the hospitality and hopefully we'll be back!"
