Alabama House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This is a true Lake Home. Almost the entire front and sides of this custom lake home are glass. It feels like you are on the water even when you are inside. There are spectacular sunsets and water views from every room in the house. And best of all, only a few steps to the water.

The kitchen is stainless, granite and slate, it has two ovens, an island with a radius granite bar and bar stool seating. It looks like something you would find in a custom home magazine. There is a giant stone fireplace in the living room and a cushy leather sofa and chair for watching TV or relaxing by the fire. Also in the living area is a 50' flat panel TV with Bose surround sound.

Downstairs you will find an xtra room and bath with a sectional sofa, flat screen tv and a mini wet bar with ice maker.

There is a covered balcony on every level and a large deck literally hanging over the water in front. A large double gas grill is provided for whatever fires up your appetite.

The home faces west on one of the largest bodies of water on Smith Lake. And the sunsets...well they're just simply amazing.

The only thing that could make them better is enjoying them from the hot tub.

The custom double boathouse has its own wet bar with granite counter tops, bar stools, a bar size fridge, a large swim deck with table and chairs, playground swings, a corkscrew slide and a diving board for the kids.

Cullman is about 20 min away with movies, shopping, Starbucks, lots of food options and whatever else you might need.

About John Key

I am a Custom Home Builder and a General Contractor. I built this home for my family starting in 2001 and completed it in may 2005. I grew up playing on this lake and I love it here!!

If you are interested in buying a lake home that pays for itself, please contact me!

John Key purchased this house in 2005

Why John Key chose Alabama

Smith Lake is rated as the third cleanest lake in the country. There are 500 miles of shoreline with over 21,200 acres of water and depths of over 300 feet! Much of the lake is in the Bankhead National Forest with miles of undisturbed wooded shores and spectacular views.

What makes this house unique

Amazing views from every room in the house

Absolutely Amazing!

I just returned from a vacation here and it was perfect! The boat dock was great for the kids. The rope swing kept them entertained for hours! Beautiful views of the lake and the deck overlooking the water was so relaxing! The inside was great too. The rooms were large and comfortable and the home was spread out enough to allow the "night owls" to stay up without bothering those of us who were exhausted after a long day on the lake and wanted to get to sleep. There's nothing like waking up to all that natural sunlight in the morning (but if that's not your thing, you can close the shades/curtains and sleep in) I will definitely rent again!

Our Alabama Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great week on Smith Lake. The house was great and the view was spectacular!!

We have grown children and they really enjoyed the clean, deep water on Smith Lake. The house is in a perfect place to just sit and enjoy the water from the balconies (one on every floor!!) The "toys" on the boat dock was perfect for my kids to play on. The swings and the rope kept them occupied for hours when they were not out in the boat enjoying water sports. We will definetly rent again. It was by far the best rental property we have ever been on.
