Welcome to Reuss Retreat on Smith Lake
What a wonderful place to get away! The cabin is at the end of a quiet dead end road, so you don’t have to worry about a traffic. A 100’ dock leads past the cattails into beautiful Smith Lake, well known for excellent sunnies and crappies (though I have done very well with Northern and Bass over the years). It’s a quiet lake, especially during weekdays, so you don’t have to battle lots of other boats. The lake is nearly 700 acres, big enough to have variety but small enough that you can enjoy the whole thing. A 14’ aluminum row boat is available for use (feel free to bring your own small motor). As you can see from the photos, it's not a swimming beach by any stretch, but it's a lovely setting. In the spring and early summer the water is crystal clear. As the season wears on the water grows cloudy (which actually helps with the fishing!).
The cabin is a year round home, so it's perfect for a getaway in the middle of winter. Smith Lake is well known in the area for ice fishing, with schools of crappies and large Northern drawing ice houses onto the ice. The setting is also perfect for a quiet get-a-way, by yourself or with a few friends. Lounge around, put together some puzzles, and play some games.
The home, built in 2004, brings peace and comfort. The front door opens into a vaulted living/dining/kitchen with knotty pine on the ceiling. Three bedrooms are down the hall: the master bedroom with a queen sized bed and master bath (with shower), a second bedroom with a queen bed, and a third with twin bunk beds and another twin bed. The futon in the living room opens into a full sized bed as well. A bath with tub and shower is on the main floor.
We are new to VRBO and have been hard to work to make the cabin as comfortable as possible. In 2017 we added brand new sheets/towels/pillows and a deck on the back and an updated entry porch. in 2018 we upgraded he exterior, adding a retaining wall and rock all around the house. It looks lovely.
We have a neighbor who serves as our used to own his own resort and will make you feel welcome and at home. He's available if any issue arises during your stay.
