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!

Property is very nice and clean with great views from the deck.

  • 4 of 5

My family had a great time. We enjoyed our stay. My son enjoyed fishing from the boat dock. We enjoyed swimming also. Due to weather we couldn't do s'mores outside. It is nice that you have it ready just in case. Everything you need is provided. I loved sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee and listening to a symphony of birds singing. I loved the big tub in the master area. The manager Tom was so nice to us. The updated appliances in the kitchen were great for cooking meals in. The only downfall was the narrow driveway to get in and out of and the stairs. Other than that, it is a great place to stay. Lots of room.Thanks for making our vacation a memorable one.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This lake house was a great choice for vacation! The location was great and the house was very well kept. They had everything you could possibly need. It was very clean and decorated with great taste. You can tell the owners take pride in their property. The owners were easy to get in touch with and were a pleasure to work with. We will definitely rent again!

Great location, beautiful outdoor area

  • 3 of 5

My husband, daughter and I recently rented this property for a few days. The outdoor porch and pier with kayaks were great. However, the house itself was not clean when we arrived. The refrigerator, master shower (I did not check the other shower), floor, countertops and accent furniture were all dirty and I spent most of the first day there cleaning. We were pretty miserable with our allergies from all the dust and there were dead bugs (just mosquitos hawks and beettle type bugs) and dust on the floor along with pollen on everything. If you don't mind the home not being spic and span, it is a great location with a large beautiful patio area including a large and small table with lovely large chairs. I emailed the property manager after we checked out since I didn't think anything could be done about the uncleanliness during our stay and I needed to have the home clean right away so I thought it best to do it myself but I did not receive a response to my email.

Wonderful Lake House!!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything! A beautiful view, wonderful porch, boat dock, kayaks, very comfortable furniture. Plus, the owner made sure it was stocked with the things you need when you are away from home. They even provided the ingredients we needed to make S more's in the fire pit! We will definitely try to visit again!
