4 Bedroom 2 Bath With Double Decker Boathouse And Gazebo With Swinging Bed.
This lake home has custom woodwork throughout to give it that special cabin feel but with all the amenities of home. This is a very special place that families will remember for years to come. The gazebo is nestled under a canopy of trees and next to a steep rock wall which stays very cool. The views from the house, gazebo and boat dock are just spectacular. Kids will enjoy the round-about slide or jumping off the upper or lower level of the boathouse and swim deck. A covered boat slip is provided for those that want to bring their boat or we can help you with boat rentals that will be waiting on you when you arrive. Boat rentals include pontoon or deck boat.
A water slide, kayak, paddle board, climbing rope and swing for the kids provide fun in and out of the water. Also, satellite TV and internet is available.
Please note the firepit is not available for use. It is gas and most people are unable to light it safely. Sorry for the inconvenience.

About Owner/Property Manager
We are just a normal family enjoying spending time together making memories. This home is our getaway location for our family to visit and enjoy these special childhood years of our children/grandchildren. Here is where cousins become friends.
Owner/Property Manager purchased this House in 2013
Why Owner/Property Manager chose Crane Hill
This property provides a cozy cabin feel which is both comfortable and quaint, yet roomy enough for grandparents, children, and grandchildren.
What makes this House unique
After visiting several properties, we fell in love with many aspects of this beautiful home. From a reasonable standpoint, the location and easy access of this property is a huge plus for us. But from the heart, it is the beautiful woodwork inside the house, the gorgeous view from the deck, and the shady hide-away nestled in the rock that we fell in love with at first sight. And, on top of that, there is the fun and functional boat dock and that spectacular, clear water just waiting for someone to jump into it. This is truly heaven on earth!

We had a great time.
Couldn't use the fire pit or the fireplace. Also couldn't use the waterslide but house is amazing, beds are comfortable. We also for sure got a work out in with the stairs!
Slide works perfectly. Not sure what the issue was. I never heard a word from the guests. Sorry for the inconvenience. And yes the firepit is not available during the summer season.
The property was beautiful
The property is just as beautiful as the pictures show. Perfect view of the lake! The hike up and down the stairs to the water is brutal so plan your trips wisely. Three reasons I didn't give it 5 stars: 1) you can't use the fire pit that is shown in the pictures. It's a beautiful shot of the property that helped to "sell" it but you can't use it. You don't learn that until after you've booked it and receive the rental agreement. 2) When we received the check-in instructions, we were told there is a stray dog. There are actually two that seem very comfortable there. They spent most of the week with us. One even came down to the water and swam at the dock with us. 3) The owner kept $50 of the deposit because of loose items in the trash can. (Broken down boxes and one of the stray dogs had chewed stuff up outside so we just threw it in the can. Should we have left it there?) This wasn't a stipulation in the agreement so I don't feel that was appropriate. Otherwise, we had a great time and the house is beautiful!
Sorry the firepit is not available during the summer. The picture we use to "sell" it is actually of the lake and the listing does state the firepit is not available. Sorry for the confusion.
Great place.. will go back!
Great experience for all!! Beautiful lake .. view.. cabin ... dock.. couldn't have been better ! Will be back .
Thanks. Glad you enjoyed!
Beautiful home and great area on the water.
The home is beautiful, the boat dock and its amenities are fantastic. We had a wonderful time. The only negative is no master bath room.
almost perfect. get a great workout on the stairs. house is fantastic. fishing very good. was nice having a covered boat dock for my boat. would stay again. Large neighbor Labrador friendly but a major pest. squirt him with the water hose to run him off or he'll wear a hole in you.
Perfect Family Getaway Vacation
We loved our visit to Rockaway Ridge! We gathered with our four grown sons for a few days of post-Christmas family time. The house is lovely and cozy, with gorgeous woodwork, and sturdy, comfortable furniture (including great beds.) Everything was very clean, and the kitchen was well-equipped for our family meals.
This was our first trip to Smith Lake, but we hope it's not the last. (Next time we will probably come in the summer so we can truly enjoy the water.) The view from the house is outstanding and lured us out to the deck and boat dock for many hours. Evenings were spent playing games, watching movies and working puzzles. (We loved the HUGE table, so we could keep a puzzle going, but still do family dinners.) It was a perfect spot for reconnecting and getting away from our busy lives.
Thanks to the owner for staying in close contact. He made check-in easy and clear. We HIGHLY recommend this home!!
Beautiful custom cabin on Lewis Smith Lake. Spectacular views of one of the cleanest lakes in the country.
