House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
Hi, I'm David Philpot and am the owner of Smith Lake Retreat. I've always enjoyed travelling whether across town or over the ocean to unfamiliar countries. Still, I've always relished returning to a familiar spot away from home that was also home to me. At the lake I'm amazed at the clarity and relaxed frame of mind I can achieve, yet also be energized at the same time. I hope you can "Come to Your Best Senses" at Smith Lake Retreat, as many others have before you.
Owner purchased this House in 1997
Why Owner chose Crane Hill
My home is in Birmingham but grew up on the Gulf Coast and have always enjoyed the water, whether fresh or salt. Since Smith Lake is more convenient and one of the cleanest lakes in the U.S. I opted for a lakehome rather than the beach. I realized I couldn't use the house as much as I'd like so I decided to rent and share on a short term basis; with no regrets. I hope you enjoy Smith Lake Retreat and the lake as much as I do with all it has to offer. The house is not a rental but a second home to me, so, welcome to my home. -David Philpot

Great family weekend
This was our 2nd time staying here. We love the location and the property is perfect for our family.
Beautiful Lake Retreat
The home was beautiful extremely clean and comfortable. We had a wonderful time and did not want to leave. Thank you for allowing us to visit. We will return when next visiting the lake.
Well equipped, several amenities not normally found in a rental. Great location, deep water at dock. Very little lake traffic.
Plan ahead if you are launching a boat, not many public ramps.
Boat dock was great with a upper deck for kids to jump into the water.
Nice little property!
We enjoyed our stay at this place. We had 2 families with young kids and the house accommodated us well. Very spacious. It could have been a little cleaner but overall I give it 4 stars. The lot is steep and fairly private. We had an awesome time on Smith Lake!!
Labor Day family trip
Had a great trip and the lake house was wonderful!! Only issue was a dirty oven & it could have had a little yard maintenance!! Would definitely stay again.
The house was just what we needed even bigger than we thought. Location on the lake was perfect. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We will definitely rent again. We had a wonderful family vacation.
