About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8- 9)

Equisite in detail and charm offering Comb-Cedar & Stone craftsmanship, tongue and groove cedar ceiling, built in 2009 describes this quaint nostalgic lake cottage offering magnificent views of Lewis Smith Lake. Total privacy- nestled in a secluded “off the beaten path” area of Lewis Smith Lake. This lake house is ideal if you are looking for total seclusion in getting away from it all! Our water depth at dock is 65' deep and crystal clear water. We are just 10 minutes West by boat to Duncan Bridge Marina. 30 minutes by car to Double Springs, AL, 45 minutes from Jasper, AL., 1 hour 1/2 from Huntsville, AL. Experience an awakening of our eastern sunrise views from our Master Suite area (breath taking sunrises !). If you are a nature lover & outdoor enthusiasts-you are in for a treat- walk less than 75 yards and find yourself covered in nature and tranquility as you meander throughout the Bank Head National Forest 3 minutes away. Some of the wildlife you may encounter include: White Bald Eagles occasionally, Deer, Turkey, and Waterfowl Geese in abundance.

We invite you to sit back, relax, and enjoy yourselves as we open up our lake cottage to you our guest. Witness the peace and serenity as you step back in time leaving the grind and the stress of big city life in your rear view mirror. Discover the night skyline and see for yourself why they say “The Stars Do Fall on Alabama”!

Grill out and enjoy the outdoor entertainment gazebo as it offers views of the south’s 3rd cleanest lake in the country right in our own backyard. You will experience the deep emerald green water unlike no others of which this lake is known for. Gentle slope w/stair step walkway to our single slip boat house - no HIGH BLUFFS to climb or stairs at StarStruck !!

We welcome all season travelers & fish enthusiasts. Lake is host of 3 world fishing titles,and a favorable host of Bass Master Pro circuit. We catch fish regularly both stripped bass & spotted bass right off our dock. I will be more than happy to share with you my secrets of success in landing your “fresh catch” of the day. Clean your own 'catch' outside at owners fish cleaning station as provided with a full sink with running water.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Cindy and Jaye are season professionals in our careers. Jaye is retired USMC aviation veteran of 22 years and now presently enjoys spending time catering and cooking competition style BBQ under team name "Just Smoke "N" Around BBQ" out of Jackson, GA. (www.justsmokenaroundbbq.com) Cindy is in the healthcare industry and a 27 year veteran as a Medical Technologist serving with Northside Hospital in Atlanta, GA. We both love the outdoors. We love to travel and enjoy spending time with our 6 grand children between visiting Georgia/ Texas.

Why the Owner Chose Double Springs, AL, USA:
We chose Smith Lake because of the crisp water quality it offers over all others. Water quality is unmatched !! Smith Lake is known to be the 3rd cleanest lake in the country. As evidence, you actually can view the clarity of water 10' below at the shoreline from our dock. The water is just gorgeous resembling emerald green color as this is what drew us to this lake from out of state. "Waterfalls" in the Sipsey Wilderness are just a 45 minute ride from our home offering hiking & beautiful views and scenery. We live in Atlanta- as we commute 4 1/2 hrs to our lake home at Lewis Smith Lake. It's worth the drive for us to escape for some downtime and visit our 'little peace of heaven' . We plan to retire here in about 10 years.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peace, Relaxation, Remote, Bankhead National Forest being across our street 50 yards away ! Easy access gentle slope concrete driveway for turnaround and parking.
