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 Arley

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.

Absolutely wonderful stay. This house is as perfect for our crew. Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our crew. The location was excellent! Sunsets there were breathtaking. The house was very clean and spacious. We loved the swing close to the lake. I even managed to work a nap in there! The two kitchens actually made it very nice as we did a lot of cooking and used both refrigerators and stoves. With the two living areas when the kids wanted to play their own games or watch their own shows they just took the upstairs living space. There were some great movies available to watch on DVD as well. Overall we were very pleased and about to book again for next year! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

All I can say is wow. We fell in love with the place. I brought a group of teens for a weekend bible study getaway and we had an amazing time. So spacious and so clean. If they don’t have what you need there is a dollar general about 5 miles away. The furnishings are so nice and comfortable. I want to thank the owners for sharing such a place. Thank you and God bless!

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! We so enjoyed this beautiful place and would definitely recommend staying here. The house is very clean and has everything that you could ever need. The location was beautiful! We have never been to this area before but hopefully will be able to return in the future. Nice just being able to walk down to the boat right from the house. We had so much fun riding in the boat on the lake, fishing from the dock, grilling at night and enjoying the fire pit. This is truly a relaxing place. Dealing with the owner was a breeze and everything was as advertised. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful lake home!!

Very quiet and peaceful place.

  • 4 of 5

This place was exactly as described. The owners put a lot of thought into the needs of people who stay there. We spent a lot of time in the back yard, on the boat dock, and in the lake. Plenty of room for everyone in the house. We also enjoyed watching the movies and playing card games.
