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.

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!

Family time and relaxing all in the same weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time here. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay here, talking about doing it again next year already. More than enough room for 13 people. Downstairs was ideal for grandmother and getting together for fun games. Porch on both levels allowed nieces to have a little piece and quiet, and other could enjoy the outside on the porch below. Having 2 bench swings was great, made a great pic at sunset on the one down by the lake. Owner was great, hosue was clean and well maintained. Thank you for this time!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family had the most relaxing time! This is a perfect spot on the lake and the home had everything we could have ever needed. The kids really enjoyed swimming! Already asking when we can go back! This was by far the most laid back vaca we have ever been on. Porch was perfect for our morning coffee and family talks. Barry was also wonderful to work with. Our family will definitely be visiting Lakewood again!

family get together

  • 5 of 5

The house was all and more then we expected. All of us enjoyed swimming off the dock and enjoying the swing. The cove was nice with no boat traffic. The boat launch was very convenient yet a little challenge for a 20' boat and a crew cab truck using the dirt road beside the property, next time I'll back down the driveway. It was very nice to have so much space that all the family weren't on top of each other.The owners were great to work with. In closing all I can say it was great and we're looking forward to coming back in August.

A Wonderfully Relaxing Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a family gathering at the lake with our parents and children for Mothers' Day Weekend and week - it was just what the doctor ordered! There was plenty of room for all, the back decks were relaxing (no bugs this time of year!) and the doc was very relaxing.

Its a little distance to Cullman but not too far from groceries or a good Mexican restaurant.

It was easy working with Barry and would easily do it again. Thanks for a great time for our family!
