Full Description: "Total-Lee Fun" is one of the highest quality properties in our program. Total-Lee-Fun has it all. You can be in the house or in the breezy back yard and feel like you're in the mountains. Go down to the very spacious double deck boat/swim dock and you'll know you're at the lake. During the day you can swim (kids will spend hours and energy jumping from the top deck diving board), boat, fish or relax in the sun. During the evening you can grill, relax on one of the porches (screened, covered, unscreened it has them all.) Watch DVD's, play games at the game table, a family tournament at the foosball table. Or simply hangout in the downstairs game room watching the new 70 inch flat screen television. There is an extra refrigerator downstairs for additional food storage. The photos will show that this home is a perfect spot for your vacation and the place to make lifetime memories.
The house is a three story home based on a North Carolina mountainside house plan. Exposed beams, vaulted ceilings, and many windows out to the lake are all part of what makes this house unique.
The kitchen looks out onto the living area that features high vaulted ceilings. See the pictures as words do not do it justice.

Not a rental "by owner".
The Real Estate Agent (not owner) in charge of this and other rentals on Smith Lake, did not communicate very well, after we paid. I must have asked 6 times for directions from the TN/AL border, and never got them. The owner complained about the check-out condition of the house. That's what the very high cleaning fee is for: cleaning before the owner arrives! We moved some furniture, forgot a trash bag, left some food in the fridge (was there when we arrived) and did not put the tuperware back where the owner wanted it. So 2 weeks after we checked-out, the agent hit my CC with a charge that doubled our cleaning fee. Watch-out !! The owners took the telephones and the cell signal is very, very weak. What if we had needed to call 911? There are only enough utensils for 6 people to eat at the same time. You will have to share bath towels too. Nails popping up on the deck, screen door won't close. Warped 2 x 6s on the upper dock are a trip hazard and will gash toes, so bring bandaids. Stairs from the upper dock to the lower dock are strange, they may be non-standard heights, we had several people loose their balance. Use the hand-rail. Only outside lights are flood lights on the house, no lights on the dock and only low light solar lanterns on the way down the slippery, sloping steps to the gangway. The smooth sandstone steps to the gangway are slippery when wet, designed to be non-standard rise and run, and designed to slope with no hand rail. The 20 foot high gangway leading to the dock is coming loose from it's anchor on the bank and is being held up with nylon straps around two 3" pine trees. Gangway anchor has dropped 2 feet, so the last step is a doosey. Acording to the guest book, the house has actually been a rental since 2003, not 2009 as stated in the listing.
As the owner of Smith Lake Rentals I obviously take offense to this response. I rack this up to "you cannot please everyone". I just hope that those of you that read the above review will not hold it against this unbelievable house. I actually believe he must have commented on the wrong house!! Take a look at the pictures and I think you will see that this is one spectacular house.
In response to a couple of his comments...You get full directions when you receive the lockbox code? We do charge if the house is trashed and it was. This is the only time in over 1000 rentals that we charged extra for cleaning...it was a mess.
As far as what we describe as booby traps (nails popping up, dock anchor issues, etc) these are just not accurate. The owners nor us would never allow these issues to exist or remain.
We have managed this property for the owners since 2009 and it is one of our more popular properties. We love it and think you will too.
