Leave all your cares behind, and indulge your senses at Cody’s Cabin on Smith Lake. A short drive from Birmingham, you will feel like you’re a world away as you meander along a quiet road with picturesque views of the countryside. You’ll be welcomed inside this rustic Adirondack style log cabin by the aroma of knotty pine into a huge kitchen and dining room where you can enjoy a family breakfast next to a real wood fireplace with wide views of the lake.
Take a moment to catch your breath before stepping into the Great Room. Here you can read a book while watching the boats go by on the comfortable leather sofa, enjoy a glass of wine by the floor to ceiling rock fireplace, watch a DVD with the whole family, or just sit and enjoy the details of this exquisitely decorated room with pine wood beams stretched across the soaring ceilings.
You’ll be drawn up to the loft where you will find an open area with bonus daybed and office area with wireless internet connection and a private full-size bedroom with views of the Great Room and Smith Lake. Just off the Great Room, a hand-carved King Bed with a mural of the Lake and beautiful armoire with satellite TV make up the first master suite. The master bath features a claw foot tub and an incredible custom stone and slate shower large enough for two.
Wake up to awesome views of the lake from the second King suite with adjoining bathroom. The kids will love the 4th bedroom’s colorful full-size bed and 3rd bath. With all the beauty inside, you tend to forget the main reason you came here but eventually you will find yourself on the back covered porch looking out over amazingly clear and deep waters of the main body of Rock Creek.
A large fenced in yard allows Mom and Dad the opportunity relax in the very unique rockers or porch swing and watch the kids play. When you’re ready to go down to the lake, a gentle walk leads you to the boat dock with swim pier and double jet-ski lifts. You’ll definitely want to take advantage of the large stainless gas grill enjoy your meal in the lakeside gazebo with picnic table and double glider. With all these extraordinary amenities and accommodations for up to 11 people, you’ll want to come every season to Cody’s Cabin.

Larry Watts purchased this cabin in 2004
I chose this location for the beautiful lake and mountains.
I enjoy boating and spending time with friends and family while at the cabin.
Cody's Cabin has a great view, decorated very tastefully, and the kitchen is very well equipped. My family has pet allergies, so I checked before renting, and it clearly states no pets allowed. There was dog hair in a couple of the bedrooms. The master bedroom bedspread had door hair! My mother, grandson and daughter-in-law all got sick and had to go to their doctors when they got home. We love dogs, but they stay outside. If dog dander, and dog hair doesn't bother you, this is a nice place. This is definately Cody's ( the owner's dog ) place. Other than the dog hair issue, this place was very clean and a great place to escape to. We love Smith Lake and loved this place (except for the dog hair). It's in a great location and the owner is a super nice guy. This is definitely a great Lake House and I hate that so many of our family had problems with the dog allergies.
We had 7 adults (brothers, sisters, spouses) and there was plenty of room for everyone. The cabin is beautiful -- just ignore the abandoned trailer next door because you'll only see it when you pull up. Inside the cabin is amazing and outside is peaceful and spacious. The covered porch is perfect for rainy days and the large open deck with fire pit is great for soaking up some sunshine.
Smith Lake is deep, clean and clear. The water off the end of the dock was about 100 feet! The rock walls keep the water from getting muddy and makes for a great place to sit and look at the water. The swing near the water is also a great place to enjoy the water view. The swim dock is plenty big for lounging, hanging out and playing in the water. We skiied up and down the lake in front of the cabin. Plenty of room for all types of water sports.
This cabin had the best stocked kitchen I've ever seen in a rental. Everything you could possibly need is there. I loved the TWO 14-cup coffee pots. Perfect for big coffee drinkers.
The bathrooms were also well-stocked with plenty of extra TT and towels.
Book this cabin and enjoy a wonderful, peaceful stay on the lake.
This is a beautiful, comfortable property. Very cozy, with two fireplaces indoors and one out on the deck. Perfect for enjoying the porch swing while looking out on the amazing lake view, taking long walks and enjoying the family. The home was fitted with supplies for enjoying a glass of wine by the fireplace, baking with the family, and large family dinners. We hope to come back here again and again! The owner has the property beautifully decorated for maximum comfort and coziness.
Our family of seven, which included three couples and one single, all adults, had a great weekend at Cody's Cabin. We especially enjoyed the rustic architecture and interior furnishings. This would be a choice winter retreat. The gentle, grassy, shady slope to the water is hard to find on this lake and we enjoyed not having to "repel" to the water. For the most part it lived up to its billing. But a few complaints: 1. Although the WiFi worked, our IPads could not open browser connections. Called the owner and he suggested a reset, but it had no effect. No real biggie, but some of our group were looking forward to sitting on the porch and surfing the web. 2. We are a family of tall persons. One bedroom, the one off the kitchen, has a short double bed. The couple that got that room did not sleep well. 3. The dock lights and electrical outlets didn't work. Called the owner. He knew about it and said he would/had (can't remember which) call an electrician. None came during our stay. Thus we couldn't charge the SeaDoo battery and had to use flashlights on the dock. 4. (The most serious complaint) The dock makes loud obnoxious squeals, clanks and clacks when it rocks to the wake of passing boats, which is most of the time on weekends. Don't plan on a peaceful layback on this dock unless you do it on a slow weekday or at night. (Don't forget your flashhight.) In spite of these complaints we all agreed we would be happy to come back if those items were improved on.
Our son got married in Birmingham on July 30, 2011 and since we are from Illinois my cousin, her family and my husband and I decided to make it our summer vacation. We had a wonderful time at the cabin, coffee in the morning on the gazebo in the rocking swing, afternoons on the lake(we rented a pontoon boat) and great meals. It is quite a distance from stores, but that was part of the charm. The kids loved diving off dock, but need life jackets as the water is very deep. This place is perfect for families.
Our family just spent the week at Cody's Cabin! Wow, one could not ask for more fun in the water, sunbathing, playing games on the large Dining Room table, watching a movie and relaxing. This is a most special place with every convenience! Love the decor of the interior and the splendid outdoor views.
Home is very child friendly for our grandchildren. Loved every minute! KPL
PS: The Owner was considerate and kind in checking to see if we found everything in good order.
