New home located in Point William, Smith Lake’s newest and most exclusive development. Point William is conveniently located to major lake destinations, yet is secluded enough to add much-desired privacy to its’ residents. This property is located in a private cul-de-sac and offers outstanding views of Smith Lake. You’ll find every inch of this property amazing and exploring the cove in the canoe that we have provided is a MUST DO while you are here. There are very few steps to the double-slip, private dock. (You are welcome to bring a boat). The lake level consists of the master bedroom and bathroom, as well as a second den with a daybed w trundle and a crib for those with an infant or toddler. The lake level also boasts an expansive deck overlooking the private dock and a gorgeous bend in the lake. The lane (main entry) level is perfect for entertaining and consists of the kitchen and dining area, the pantry, a half bath, second porch and an inglenook. The inglenook has a fireplace and entertainment center, along with views of the lake and hillside. On the second level there are two guestrooms that have stunning views of the lake, along with another bathroom. The home also has fourth floor bunkroom consisting of 4 twin beds and an entertainment system perfect for adult seclusion or for children. A pool sits on top of the property with breathtaking views of the lake. Children and pets are certainly welcome but must be well-trained and disciplined as the home is located on a rock bluff. While well-trained pets are allowed, no pets are allowed on any of the furnishings.

Why Jason and Betsy chose Crane Hill
While at Samford University, I spent a lot of time at Smith Lake. I introduced my husband to it and he also fell in love with it and after we moved to Mississippi, we knew we had to have a piece of Alabama to visit and so we picked Smith Lake. We picked our spot due to several reasons, but the one I love the most is that there are little steps to the water compared to other places I have stayed. Makes it easy to lug two toddlers back and forth.
What makes this Cottage unique
The views are amazing and due to the limited boat traffic, I am able to spend all day in the water if I want to.

We enjoyed the stay. Just a great place. The kinda place you wish was your own. Having a fire on a cold fall day was a perfect touch while watching the Iron Bowl. The kitchen is equipped nicely. The place was clean and maintained. We will go back.
Beautiful weekend get away
Betsy and Jason's home is beautiful lake get away! We went on a chilly weekend in November and enjoyed their fireplace and sitting on the dock watching the sun set! I would recommend this home for any time of the year.
Lovely, welcoming, cottage atmosphere on Smith Lake
The home worked well for our gathering of 12 ladies, from 4 states. It was a lovely weekend surrounded by so much beauty. It was well stocked with everything we needed. It was well maintained, simply and beautifully decorated. It had a cottage feel that made you feel right at home - though it was 3 stories and plenty of room for all of us. The cool weather kept us from enjoying too much of the deck on the lake. But, with all the plentiful deck off the first two levels of the home it gave us plenty of space to venture out for quiet reflection during our down times. The beds were comfortable. The water heater was good for our group to take showers whenever without running out of heat. The homeowners we very kind and always helpful with our questions. Even calling us directly on one occasion to clarify a question we had.
Some suggestions we had as a group:
Parking. We would have liked to have known the condition of the road in and out of the neighborhood before arriving. It is very steep, half is paved, half is dirt and gravel. We had no trouble getting in and out, but, would have liked to have known ahead of time. Parking was extremely limited and a little troublesome. We would have liked to have this clarified a little more clearly prior to our arrival. As I stated before, we had 12 women coming from 4 different states. 5 to 6 cars. The home only allowed for 2 or 3 cars in front of the home, depending on the size. After being confused about overflow parking - which we thought was on either side of the home but turned out to be up the steep hill at the entrance of the neighborhood - We were able to firgure out with one of kind and gracious neighbors that they would allow us to park two of the cars in the space in between the two homes. The outside of the home was a little mildewed with cobwebs in most of the windows. Lake living! There is no WiFi access accept to connect to AppleTV which was not something we used or knew whether we could use but did get special permission to use the no internet wifi to use our Echo. Only 2 out of the 12 were able to make or receive phone calls. We concluded it was carriers. But multiple had children/families to keep up with.
The dishwasher was unusable, part of the weekend due to top rack would not stay in position, would not always allow us to shut the door. The shower head, in particular the one in the downstairs bedroom needed cleaning.There was some pink slime buildup. Otherwise, the home was very clean.
These two were a dream to have as hosts. Home and lake were also beautiful!!!
We loved it so much! Book this house!
It was great!
Our Labor Day family vacation was the best. We loved the house, the lake, the pool.
We had amply room for the 10 of us and the little fellas loved the crows nest room (hideout) just for them.
