About Barry and Deborah Bennett

Having grown up around Smith Lake, I know, firsthand, the beauty, tranquility, cleanliness, and fun of Lewis Smith Lake. We are glad to be able to share these pleasures with our guests.

Barry and Deborah Bennett purchased this house in 2014

Why Barry and Deborah Bennett chose Lewis Smith Lake

This property is on a quiet slough with quiet neighbors, with a swim pier, one slip boat house, and its OWN boat launch. It is conveniently located on the water about half-way between Lewis Smith Dam and Duncan Bridge.

What makes this house unique

This property provides a spacious home, located just off the main body of the lake on a quiet slough. The lot is nearly level with a gentle slope to the water and a one slip boat dock with a swim deck. This lot is conveniently located near the main body, near the mouth of Rock Creek and about one mile from Duskin Point Marina. No traveling to and from the marina to put in your boat and PWC. Boat launch right on the property. Property has year round water and beautiful view of the main body but nicely tucked just inside a cove for a more peaceful vacation experience.

Pics Don't do Justice!

  • 5 of 5

The house looks a lot better in person! Some of the rooms have been painted and there is more patio furniture than shown in the pics. The second kitchen and refrigerator provided ample space for all of our groceries. The swim pier was located in a calm cove, so it was perfect for swimming. Also, there is only a slight incline from the house to the water (not a million steps, like some places)! This was the perfect lake house for our family and our favorite rental so far!

Alabama Boatride

  • 4 of 5

We have visited the Lakewood house several times now and have been pleased with the house and location. The week was peaceful and relaxing. My son and I fished rock creek all week enjoying early morning fishing. The grand kids enjoyed the swimming tubing and kayaking. The water was great and the shade kept us very comfortable. It has been wonderful to find a vacation spot only two and a half hours away from home. It is my pleasure to recommend Lakewood house to everyone. Come on and visit

Perfect New Years!

  • 5 of 5

Our family all came together for the first time in years and rented this home over the New Years holiday. Chose this central location and it was the best experience! The house was very CLEAN and well stocked! On a great private lot with a beautiful wooded area off the back. We loved the swings and the back porches and making s'mores in the fire pit. The home has so much room, it has 2 kitchens and 2 living rooms! The kids played and made wonderful memories fishing and running around outside. We hiked in Bankhead National Forest nearby. It was truly so refreshing. Can't wait to visit again this summer and enjoy the swimming!
