About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths With Panoramic Views, Covered Boat Dock, and Kayaks

This cozy 3 bedroom, 2 bath open cabin style floor plan is perched 50 feet above Lewis Smith Lake on year round deep water; within sight of Big Bridge. Located at the end of a private road leading out to the point, it provides wide open panoramic views across the lake with the ultimate in privacy and seclusion. A covered deck on the main floor and a fire pit overlooking the lake, coupled with home-made ice cream and s ‘mores, provide an ambiance that will take you a step back in time when things weren't so busy and there was time to create memories with your family, friends and new acquaintances. Bring your boat, boats or PWC! A very large floating dock, with two covered boat slips ( one with 4.5K hyrdo-lift) and a PWC Port is perfect for swimming, boating, water skiing, and tubing, fishing or relaxing. The owner's four kayaks and two paddle board are available to explore the natural beauty of this wonderful clear lake. You won't go far for fishing; the slough we are on is known for some of the best fishing on the lake.

This lake house is best for a couple's romantic getaway, a Mom's weekend retreat, or families with children who are old enough to swim and safely navigate stairs to the lake. The large master king suite opens out to the covered deck and has a massive bath that includes an extra large soaking tub and walk-in shower. The other two guest rooms are equipped with queen beds that share the large guest bathroom. The fully furnished modern kitchen and breakfast nook provide even more spectacular views of the lake and the boat house below. The downstairs area provides kids with plenty of room to play games while Parents enjoy the serenity of the upstairs. The home is fully equipped with amenities; just bring your food, drinks, clothing and water toys.

Trident Marina and the 'Country Mall' are less than 1 mile; fantastic seasonal restaurants are within 2-3 miles; the Crane Hill Dollar Store is 6 miles. Visit the small town charm and unique antique shops of downtown Cullman just 25 minutes away. Stony Lonesome OHV Park for ATVs, bikes, equestrians, and hikers is just 15 min away. Plus brand new granite countertops and new kitchen appliances installed in 2017!

Beautiful, clean house with great views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation. The Lake House is clean and beautifully decorated. We loved making s'mores at the fire pit and we caught a spotted bass while kayaking. The big hit was the ping pong table. This house even had the appropriate stemware for our wines. We would love to come back.

Beautiful, comfortable waterfront home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property. Very comfortable for 6 people (and three babies). Kitchen was very nicely equipped for cooking, beds comfortable, the outside area is fantastic. LOVED the grill! Lots of water toys and the view was incredible.

Excellent Stay on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

we have rented numerous houses from VRBO in several different places. The Lake House was just about perfect.

Supplied with various supplies so we could pack light. Things like cleaning and paper products. Most houses don't supply those things.

We loved the house itself, plenty of room, beds were comfortable.

Having the kayaks, paddle boards and other water toys right there saved us BIG time, by not having to bring our own. The location on the lake was great! The water was so refreshing.. and that walk up and down? Kept us in shape and able to eat and drink what we wanted.

Tom was great to work with and very responsive to my many questions.

Thanks again!

Just Got Home and Want to Go Back!

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from a visit to this beautiful home with 2 other couples. We had a fantastic weekend and the house was warm, inviting, and comfortable, The owners anticipated all of our needs, including the supplies for S'mores by the outdoor fire pit. But the real hit was the back porch which was like heaven on earth. The local manager, Tom could not have been more helpful and welcoming. We hope to come back soon!

A trip to remember

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This house is amazing... very comfortable, extremely clean, beautifully decorated, well appointed, great kitchen for cooking. The owners have thought of everything to make the stay pleasant. They were so helpful even before we arrived. There is plenty to keep everyone entertained while at the house. From swimming, fishing, kayaking, fires in the fire pit, making ice cream, board games, family movies, yard games...truly the owners have gone out of their way to make this place an excellent family getaway. My teenage boys had a fantastic time and are asking when we will be back (and we will absolutely come back!). It was a great place to reconnect and have less technology (there is an Xbox so they didn't have to go cold turkey!) The lake is wonderful. We had a great time boating and swimming. It was not crowded. This will be a trip that my family will always remember. I highly recommend!
