About the Property

Cottage sits on 2.5 wooded acres! 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, level ground to water

This property is perfect for family vacations or romantic retreats. The large den has four beautiful lake view windows and double doors open to the deck. Bose speakers on the deck allow guests to enjoy their favorite music outdoors. The four bedrooms are as follows: Bedroom 1-Master bedroom with queen bed (mattress under the bed can be pulled out for keeping small children close by); Bedroom 2-queen bed; Bedroom 3-two twin beds; Bedroom 4-twin beds. The den has a fold out couch that sleeps two. The level grassy shoreline is a great place for pitching a tent.
Property is on a dead end road with 5 houses and little traffic. It's only 2.5 miles to McDonald, Jack's, Subway and The Iron Skillet truck stop. A well stocked grocery store is two miles away. Six miles away at the closest Cullman exit is Hardee's, Wendy's, Appleby's, Dunkin Donuts and Stuckey's. Two miles further is Walmart, Starbucks, Jim and Nick's Barbeque as well as many other local restaurants such as The All Steak restaurant that is famous for its orange rolls.
This location is a perfect home base for exploring north Alabama. Huntsville is one hour away with the Space and Rocket Center, Monte Sano mountain park with many trails and views, Bridge Street shopping, Lowe Mill arts center and many other popular visitor sites.
Cullman is a unique town with the Festhall Market which is open several times a week, many local shops near the Market, Hurricane Creek Park with hiking and camping, Sister Angelica's incredible cathedral in the middle of nowhere, and many more interesting places.
Birmingham is 45 minutes away with a great free botanical garden, the zoo, the Vulcan park, lots of shopping including the Galleria, The Summit and shopping/tourist districts in Vestavia, Homewood, and Mountain Brook just to name a few.
Of course, Smith Lake is known for its clean water and incredible fishing. The swimming/fishing/docking deck is a great place for watching the sunrise and sunset, fishing, sunbathing, swimming, and docking the new paddleboat, fisherman's kayak, and another full size kayak! Relax in the hammock while the kids play in the water and feed the fish and ducks. Watch the sunset and roast marshmallows at the stone fire pit. Fun, Fun, Fun!
