Overview

Lewis Smith Lake House Rental Photos and Description

Wonderful, quiet, large 4 BR, 3B, sleeps 14. Located on a Large, deep water cove

This three-level home sits on a secluded, wooded lake front lot with approx 150 feet of water frontage. It was designed for multiple families with kids. The view is absolutely spectacular with views of the beautiful clear water from all bedrooms, great room and game room. It has roughly 3100 square feet and has an additional 1700 square ft of decks and screen porches. There are two great rooms, one for the adults on the main level and a second for the kids (loft area). The main level great room has a tongue and grooved couffered ceiling with a wood-burn stone fireplace. Beautiful! The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops, and the kitchen also has breakfast area along with 2 additional bar stools for additional seating. For outdoor cooking, there is a large charcoal Weber grill on the main level deck overlooking the beautiful lake.

On the main level there is a master bedroom (queen), with two bedrooms on the upper level (queen in each, with pack n play crib and toddler bed in one of the upper bedrooms) that share a large bath with shower. Also, on the upper level is the loft area equipped with a sofa bed and TV/Stereo system. On the terrace level, there is a fourth bedroom (full and two bunks) with its own shower. All baths are tile and all baths are large showers only. No tubs.

On the main level, is a laundry room equipped with washer and dryer for your use.

The game room is on the terrace level equipped with foosball, pool table and one of the outside decks is right off the game room for easy access outside, where there is outdoor seating areas, table/4 chairs, 1 chaise lounge, AND a 5-man HOT TUB overlooking the lake. There is a small kitchen area, also, on the terrace level equipped with all appliances and ice maker for easy access to decks and lake area. ALL RAILINGS ARE CHILD-SAFE.

The new boat dock is a two slip dock with large swim platform and a covered area with table/4 chairs, plus 4 chaise lounges. There is a jet-ski platform for two jet-skis and 2 open boat slips for your use. In the on-season we have 60'+ of deep water off the end of our dock; in off-season we have 40'+ deep water off the end of the dock.

What attracted us to Smith Lake is that it is rated as the third cleanest lake in the country. There are 500 miles of shoreline and a depth of 265 feet at the dam with over 21,200 acres of water. Much of the lake is in the Bankhead National Forest with miles of undisturbed wooded shores and spectacular views of large rock shorelines, cliffs, waterfalls, rock overhangs, and other scenic features. Makes for some wonderful pontoon boat rides! No matter what type of leisure, water sports, sightseeing or fishing you prefer, the cleanliness and beauty of the lake make them all more enjoyable. But above all, probably to us, just the peacefulness the lake itself has to offer.

Note: The house is:

1) 15 minutes from 18-hole golf course

2) 10 min from 'local' restaurants; 15-20 min to a good variety of restaurants @ Cullman

3) 1 hour from Huntsville's NASA

4) 12 min from local grocery; interstate 65; gas stations

5) 15 min from a local Walmart- if you have to go !!

6) 10 min from a large antique mall.

7) 7 min from local ATV park (Stony Lonesome))

8) 3 min local access to boat ramp

About Sarah Vann

We grew up and have spent our entire life in Rome GA. My husband did a Military tour in Germany during the Vietnam War Era. We have 3 sons, 4 g'children and have always enjoyed boating. My husband built a ski boat when he was 16 and has been boating ever since. This is a picture of the owner, Bobby, with his first catch on Smith Lake, a 13 lb striper bass. We cooked it that very night (grilled) and it was delicious. He is a retired Traffic and Electrical Director from the city of Rome GA and has also enjoyed building spec homes in the past, but currently just enjoying retirement with wife, Sarah, who is retired from the Floyd County Board of Education as an Administrative Asst, but has stayed on part-time as receptionist for the System.

Bobby and Sarah, Rome GA

Sarah Vann purchased this house in 2008

Why Sarah Vann chose Lewis Smith Lake

One of the reasons we chose Smith Lake was because it was rated the third cleanest in the US and it also has deep waters. We live in GA and we have found that the people in AL could not be more friendly and helpful in every direction we have gone.

What makes this house unique

One unique feature about our place is you can enjoy all the sun you want, OR you can enjoy a nice lounge in the shade. It is very peaceful at our house - no neighborhood noise; when my husband and I are there with or without our g'kids, we usually get out and do a morning walk when the weather is good before having bkfast.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"To the Vanns,

"I didn't get an opportunity to write in the vacation guest book that your family had at the lake house, so I just wanted to send you a quick THANK YOU!! Our family had the best time, and our kiddos couldn't get enough! Your house and amenities are truly just amazing!! It is such a fabulous place to play, have quality family time, and relax!! We couldn't have had a better time!! And only being 40 minutes from home was an added bonus!! We are looking to make this a yearly "thing". Again, thank you so much for trusting us with your home away from Home!!" JW

GIRLS GETAWAY a SUCCESS

  • 5 of 5

The "herding of the cats" to select a place and time is always difficult. But this year it was a HOMERUN with Treetops lake house. The place was incredible, and perfect for our group of high school girlfriends. The house was a perfect size and fit for us. Once we arrived we did not leave as the water, the dock, the porches, the kitchen, the living spaces were comfortable and our weekend oasis. We had planned to go see parts of Cullman or to do dinner out, but once you arrive you cannot bare to leave. The communication with owners was easy, and we found them to be very open, welcoming, and ready for us to enjoy their home as much as they do! Thank you for sharing your home!

Owner's Response: B & M. Thank YOU for such a wonderful review after your stay at our "Treetops". It is groups like yours, family of generations' gatherings, classmates, or friends revisit long over-due, that we love to have come. We know that it will be taken care of just like we do. Any question, any issue that may arise, we try to deal with ASAP, if there are any. Again, thanks for taking the time to do the review!

Happiest Birthday Ever!

  • 5 of 5

What more could a grandmother ask for than to be with her children and grands to celebrate her 70th? This beautiful, relaxing home met everyone's desire from swimming, fishing, game room, nature, very comfortable interior and the best supplied kitchen I've ever experienced in a rental home. My 5 year old grandson summed up our weekend perfectly as we arrived home exclaiming, " now that was an AWESOME vacation"!!!!!

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

First, these are great owners. We went to this place for the weekend in April. Kind of a last minute thing, but the owners were so easy to work with. I will say the first time you drive there, it's a little hard to find, but we'll worth the minor trouble. It is a beautiful house and very comfortable. There were 4 of us (all adults) and we enjoyed our time tremendously.

One suggestion to any of you future Smith Lake visitors, and this is true of all Smith lake homes. The walk to the lake is a hike. Aka a lot of steps. But it is a great lake and this place has a perfect boat dock. We are hoping to mAke this a yearly trip.

Owner's Response: ZJ. Thanks for taking the time to do a review for our home. Just a short note on the steps at our home...... Smith lake is a very deep lake; therefore, there are going to be steps. Our steps are very comfortable walking steps, opposed to some I have seen here at Smith. The walk down to the lake is a nice walk; the walk up is your daily exercise and very doable. snv

Comfortable, Relaxing, and Great Owners...

  • 5 of 5

From the start I had no problems with owners replying in a timely manner to my general questions and they made the booking process very easy. Our group of High School and College friends were on our Annual "Super Bowl" Weekend Trip getaway with no kids and as soon as we arrived we knew we had made a great choice choosing Smith Lake rather than Gatlinburg which we stayed the last 4 years. The home was very comfortable and even though extremely nice, it still had that "Homey" feeling and had all the amenties that we were accustomed to in the mountains (fireplaces, porches, hot tubs, and gameroom)!!! It had everything we needed, all we did is have to open a drawer or a cabinet and it was there. The two VERY VERY minor flaws I could see if I am being truly honest is for someone like myself with bad knees and back, the steps up and down to the water was definitly a small workout, but the others did not seem to have any trouble...and it would have been nice to have a TV downstairs in the game room (especially with us being in town on the big game day). But those two things are so small and everything else was PERFECT and we had such a relaxing weekend enjoying the grill, indoor and outdoor fireplaces and just the peacefulness of the entire property!!! Hoping it is available for our 2015 trip!!!

Owner's Response: HH, Thanks so much for taking the time to do a wonderful review for our "Treetops". So glad everything went good for you. We may certainly look in to the possible 'TV need' in the game room. Again, thanks for staying with us; hope to see you in 2015. SNV

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had several guests stay with us the first part of June and couldn't have asked for a better place. The actual cabin was even better than the pics. Felt like we were "home" and not just at a cabin. The home was absolutely beautiful and the view was amazing! The owners were wonderful to work with, answering my many questions. We hope to return one day and make more memories. Thanks for "letting" us stay!
