Owner purchased this House in 2009
Why Owner chose Double Springs
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.
What makes this House unique
Peace, Relaxation, Remote, Bankhead National Forest being across our street 50 yards away ! Easy access gentle slope concrete driveway for turnaround and parking.

Absolutely beautiful home with stunning views of Smith Lake. My wife and I wanted a nice peaceful place to be together for a week and recharge. This was the perfect spot. Blue cloud-filled skies and relaxing sounds of nature made for great naps on the huge porch swing. One could live o the porch alone!
The fishing was excellent as well.
What an amazing stay!
Star Struck was the perfect relaxing getaway for my wife and I. The house is absolutely beautiful, and has everything you could possible ask for in a lake house, including a gorgeous view. The house has plenty of space for a couple, or a family vacation! We fully intend to visit this lovely home again, and would encourage anyone reading to do the same.
Thank you for the review and your warm comments on StarStruck. We were happy to share our little piece of heaven with you and the wife over your weekend getaway. We hope you'll book with us again soon.
Beautiful secluded lake house, the stay was great!
So pleased to hear you guys had a wonderful stay at StarStruck. Come back and book with us again soon.
Great secluded stay
The house is perfect with room upstairs and down. Outside seating and amenities are just right and give you options on where you can hangout. Walk to the dock is easy and the area is great for fishing. Enjoyed our canoe ride into the slough to see the natural beauty of the rocks and clarity of the water. Only downside is it is a long way to the store if you forget something so pack accordingly but still an A+ stay.
PS: For anyone looking to disconnect yourself and family from the world this is a great opportunity. Still has good cell phone service but no wifi and only antenna TV. Some might see this as a negative but the experience of actually having a conversation, playing games and just hanging out next to the water with teenage kids is memorable.
Thank you for the review on StarStruck Steve. We are pleased to hear your stay was an enjoyable one and appreciate your comments ! In our digital/technology world today...sometimes you just need to disconnect for awhile from all the devices and enjoy the beauty of nature and serenity of which StarStruck offers. Making memories is positively an experience to capture at StarStruck ! We hope you'll book again with us soon.
Well Maintained, charming and secluded lake house!
This home is immaculate! Everything for the lake, fishing and boating is thought of. The house is charming filled with love and warmth. Thank you for sharing this special lake place with others.

Fatastic place to spend time with the family
We spent Thanksgiving 2017 with the family and had a great time. Its rare to find everything you need to cook in a VRBO property but everything was well stocked. Plenty of room for five adults to spread out and enjoyed the outside fire/bbq area. We will back in the summer time to be able to enjoy the lake a little more!
Thanks Jaye and Family!
Thank you Robert for taking the time to write us a review. We are glad to hear your stay at StarStruck was an enjoyable one. We hope you guys book with us again soon.. The summer is booking up fast.....don't miss out :)
