About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom - Totally Remodeled on Point Lot

Total remodel of this charming lakefront home in 2013. 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.

About Bruce Gordon

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 Alabama at Birmingham and my wife and I also own Bruce Gordon Real Estate 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.

Bruce Gordon purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Bruce Gordon chose Lewis Smith Lake

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Take a break from reality with a great view...

  • 5 of 5

Waking up every morning to the view at Providence Point was such a relaxing and refreshing break from life. When we booked, we had planned to bring our boat. But the weather (cold, windy, and rainy) didn't cooperate so we chose to come boat-less anyway. We are so glad we did. What a relaxing trip! Even with the cold weather, you can sit in the family room and enjoy the view thanks to the fantastic windows. Driving down the gravel road, my wife began to question my choice. Once we walked onto the deck and saw the view she thanked me.

It was a true break from reality. Our cell phones didn't work. the wifi storage is limited, and you are quite a drive from a town with options. And no one complained one time—not even our teens.

Our group was two families consisting of four parents and eight teenagers and we had plenty of room. This is the biggest "small" house we have ever stayed in. The setup provided everyone with a bed and plenty of privacy when needed. The dock and deck provided great places to sit and watch the water pass by. Even without our boat and the ability to fish for hours like we had planned, this was one of the best trips we have ever taken.

The owners were terrific at communicating. Their pre-trip packet explained everything including the need to bring in your groceries due to the secluded location. The house was very clean and well taken care of. You simply can't find a better location and view for the price.

Do yourself a favor and book this property... you won't be disappointed.

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

With a family of nine our house is quite busy. Sometimes it is nice to not have to be going somewhere and that is just what we enjoyed about this place. The house was impressively clean and plenty of room for my wife and I and our seven children. This was our first experience with renting a house like this and I can certainly see us doing this again.

Peaceful and Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

Happy New Year to us! Part of my family wanted a get a way to bring in the new year and this was the perfect place! The view is stunning and so incredibly peaceful. I am not a morning person but I was up with the roosters every morning so I could sit out on the dock and soak it all in. The Gordon's were incredible to work with and extremely caring. They are such upstanding people! I hope to come back during the summer so I can enjoy playing in that gorgeous lake! I highly recommend this house and the homeowners to you for your getaway!

An Awesome Start to Our New Year !!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulously beautiful home!!! WOW !! And yet you also instantly feel at home. The pictures really don't do this lovely spot justice. My husband and I gathered here with my son, daughter and her husband to relax and have quality time together as we brought in the new year. And we were all so very pleased with this fantastic home. The owners went so far out of their way to make sure everything was as perfect as it could possibly be for us. I can't tell you how much I appreciate their kindness. For those of you considering spending some time here, I strongly recommend it . Wanda

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

this is a beautifully located cabin. I'm not sure if it's new but it feels new. It was stocked with things travelers forget which was so thoughtful. The views from the front porch were beautiful. We plan on going back in the summer to take advantage of diving off the huge boulders into the lake.

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. If you get tired of grilling or cooking yourself, there are are four restaurants within a 15 minute drive that are wonderful. Pets are welcome but must be approved prior to reservation.
