  • Our Vacation

    "Had a wonderful time with my family. The house comes with everything you need and real deep water by the pier. Perfect swimming and fishing off the pier."

  • good old fashioned lake home with lots of space, easy location to access, and near Duncan Marina

    "The owner is easily contacted, immediately responsive and most accommodating. The added convenience of a boat rental from him made our family gathering just what we were hoping it would be... both relaxing and exciting. The home is large and provides all the items listed... some are newer, some not so much... as one should expect at a vacation home. The home is not "new" but it is comfortable. If you are the picky type, you might prefer someplace newer, since there are some age-related items that need attention. However, many of the newer homes we saw from the water while touring Smith Lake do not have what this home has... proximity to the water and a shallow grade from the home to the boat dock. The dock provides a swim platform and ladder. We would rent again... thanks for loaning us your home and boat."

  • AMAZING… 13 PEOPLE AND ALL SMILES

    "Renting this home for a special weekend of two families meeting for the first time was the best decision we could of ever made. The pictures don't do the home justice. We had more than enough room for cooking, eating, visiting, lounging, sleeping… etc. For a rental home we were amazed how well everything was stalked… including water rafts. We thought it was so funny that when we were down by the dock or in the water, most boats that passed by would stop and tell us they loved our home. I would recommend this home to anyone. We know we will be back!"

  • 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!"

Lewis Smith Lake Travel Tips

Enjoying the Views at Lewis Smith Lake Vacation Rentals

Listing vacation rentals where you could be on a lake in summer would take a very long time, since most states have at least a few places on lakes. Despite these numerous locations throughout the U.S., you might want to consider Lewis Smith Lake vacation rentals. With these rentals, you are right on Lewis Smith Lake for any recreational activity you might want to enjoy. In fact there are several owners of houseboats that sit in the lake where you can enjoy the views. There are also rentals with boat ramps so you can get your adventure craft out on the lake. The towns of Jasper and Curry are also very close to Lewis Smith Lake for a number of opportunities like golfing, restaurants, and shopping.

The Amenities of Lewis Smith Lake Houses

A great reason for choosing Lewis Smith Lake houses over hotels are the amenities you receive. The ideal vacation home will offer you air conditioning, washers, dryers, plenty of parking, and all linens. With Lewis Smith Lake condos, you can also be assured of cable television, DVD players, CD players, VCRs, and full kitchens. By booking this type of accommodation, you are not only on a budget vacation but able to make your meals and stay out of restaurants. All too often restaurants offer salty meals so if you have special needs, you cannot do better than having a kitchen to cook in. If you are looking for restaurants, the Jasper and Curry area supply 14 different places to eat like Cabo San Lucas, Pericos, or Garfields. They also have a couple of chain restaurants such as Ruby Tuesdays and Jim & Nicks BBQ.

Living Like Royalty on Your Vacation at Lewis Smith Lake Condos

Do you want your every need attended to or perhaps you enjoy your privacy? Lewis Smith Lake condos are set on a reservoir with a dam. The area around the lake is populated with numerous homes, used for summer and all year-round living. These homes are luxury places with three to four bedrooms. Some of your options will even fit 30 people if you are having a large party. With the amenities listed above and the space you have available, the only thing left is finding something to do besides sit in a hammock all day. For those who are extremely active, you have plenty of attractions available.

Working Your Way Toward Endless Summer Fun

From your vacation rentals, you have the lake with boating, swimming, fishing, and jet skiing. The dam and lake are also very close to other waterway systems if you enjoy a bit of snorkeling and diving. Lake diving may lack some of the color of tropical fish but you can bet on a few sunken treasures to keep your interest piqued. Lewis Smith Lake is one place to launch your boat. You also have the William B. Bankhead National Park just a few minutes' drive from your vacation rental. The park is full of recreational activities including picnicking, hiking, boating, and biking. There are several biking trails if you enjoy a good ride through a forest. It is the closest natural attraction besides the numerous lakes of the area.
