About Wayne L Riggs

I am a retired CPA, from my 42 year public accounting practice. I am 78 years old and a big crimson tide fan. I pull for war eagles if not playing the tide. My dear wife of 48 years died in 2008, so i don't need the home full time any more.

Wayne L Riggs purchased this house in 1991

Why Wayne L Riggs chose Jasper

Our family has owned a home on smith lake since 1970. The lake is the cleanest and clearest anywhere. The area around Jasper was a perfect place to raise my children, who now have their own families.

What makes this house unique

Fishing, boating and water skiing when I was young. you can catch bass and stripe off the swim dock. One of my grandsons caught a 36 pound stripe last year, but not off the dock.

Beautiful View and Cozy Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and we will definitely try to come back. The home is very cozy and has everything that you would need for a great vacation. The view is great and there is plenty to do for all ages. The setup of the home worked out great for our group, we were able to have our young ladies upstairs and young men downstairs. The upstairs enclosed porch and the fire pit area were great for our lessons and praise and worship.

Thanks for sharing Sweet Home Alabama with us.

The perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Sweet Home Alabama for the amazing Memorial Day weekend! Your comfortable home was perfect for our family. The kids had so much fun playing ping pong and Frisbee in the long yard with our dog! We had plenty of room to spread out. The big kitchen table was perfect for playing games and gathering for dinner, as was the outside table overlooking the lake. We also really enjoyed the sunporch, rain or shine. With the windows open, there was a lovely breeze and you felt like you were outside even when it rained – plus you could hear the gentle waves “the rocking of the dock”. Though small, the kitchen was well-stocked and we loved having three refrigerators and extra counter space. The kids enjoyed the lower-level space to spread out. It was awesome having five bedrooms. Thanks so much for the goodies. Such a nice welcome, so personal. We are excited about our return visit to your home in a few weeks!

Great location and comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

We had ten adults and two small children and found we had plenty of room. The location really worked for us. The owners kept in contact with us to make sure we had everything we needed. We had a great time.

Great lake front Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we needed for a few days for a family members birthday. The house is old and has it's quirks, but works just fine if you're looking for a lake house with a dock. I would absolutely stay there again.
