Recent Lewis Smith Lake reviews

  • 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!"

  • Wonderful house with a great view

    "This house was very clean and well maintained. The walk down to the lake was not bad compared to some other house on Smith Lake. The 2 story dock was a lot of fun as was the slide. We would love to stay here again!"

  • GREAT VACATION!

    "This vacation was probably one of the best ones I have been on! The house was beautiful and perfect for my family! We loved having access to the water and somewhere to put a boat. We rented a pontoon boat for two days and it made it really convenient to keep it at the house. We really had a wonderful time and look forward to visiting again!"

  • Quiet Relaxing Babymoon

    "Scout's Hideaway was perfect size and location for a last minute getaway. The decor is calming and complements the tranquility of the forest. We were mostly alone on the lake, except for the rare boat or jet ski and the handful of deserted swim docks jutting out of the woods. The swim dock was perfect for picnicking with the family. The stairway with multiple landings and chairs halfway was very handy for this 38 week pregnant momma. Cabin was perfect respite for our family of three. The owners were a pleasure to work with from checking availability/price to departure and were always available to answer questions regarding the local area. They were very flexible and seemed to truly care about our stay. Would definitely like to return when the kiddos are a little older."
