About the Property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom - Totally Remodeled on Point Lot

Everything is new in this charming lakefront home. Roof, exterior walls, electrical, plumbing, floors, interior walls, stainless appliances, all bathroom fixtures, all light fixtures, EVERYTHING! Come experience the best that Smith Lake offers and also get high-speed Internet, Satellite TV, surround sound, and many other luxury features. This lakefront home sleeps up to 14 people and has a sleeping nook with two comfortable single beds.

You'll also have exclusive use of a new two-story dock with a swim pier and a boat lift for your boat. The upper deck is partially covered so you can enjoy the panoramic views while still sitting in the shade. There is also a covered deck off the family room with a gas grill and plenty of seating. A new 50' Plasma TV with surround sound hangs on the family room wall and there are two additional flat screen TV's in the house as well. Let us know if you have questions. This house has everything you need to enjoy both your time on the water and your time indoors. As of June 2014 we have added a new sidewalk to the pier and point with a gentle slope and only 6 - 7 stairs total. We have also sodded the yard and added new landscaping and a new, larger grill.


Please note that all our rates are for up to 10 people. Because of the extra wear and tear, we charge a small additional fee for each guest over 10.

For maps, details on launching your boat and where to park your trailer, etc., visit our website. The site is still under construction, but has lots of good stuff.

This property is located on deep water on beautiful Lewis Smith Lake in Arley, AL. The location is convenient to Cullman, Decatur, Huntsville and Birmingham. The views are breathtaking from this beautiful point lot and boating and fishing are just steps away from your family room.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My name is Bruce Gordon and I am happily married to Diane and have two sons, Ethan (11) and Eric (9). I teach finance at the University of North Alabama and my wife and I also own RE/MAX Valley Pros in Moulton. We are active at Moulton Baptist Church and can be found on Facebook if you are really bored and want to see photos and things. This is the second home that we have owned on Smith Lake and we totally love our time there. We use the rentals to help make the payments and use the home in between. We invite you to share our getaway at the lake.

Why the Owner Chose Arley, AL, USA:
This property is a great choice for two main reasons. First, it is located on a point lot with a view that can't be beat and second, the house is totally remodeled after being stripped down to the studs and rebuilt. Everything, and I mean everything, is new. We bought the property for the lot and then made the house what we wanted it to be with all the modern conveniences like wi-fi, satellite TV and surround sound.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Quiet location with unmatched view, but only minutes away from some great restaurants. Grocery store is only 10 minutes. In 45 minutes you can be in Cullman for more shopping choices, theaters, etc.
