My wife, Shannon and I have a passion for marriage and family minstry. Family Paradise was built with a vision of drawing families closer, creating life long memories; a place of rest and inspiration. In Spring, Summer and Fall we cater to family vacations and reunions. In winter, we focus on church retreats, including, mens, womens, marriage, youth, young adults & church leadership planing. We live in Bimingham, AL with our 4 children, Sammy, Megan, David & Emily.
Owner purchased this House in 2007
Why Owner chose Crane Hill
Smith Lake is one of the cleanest and most beautiful lakes in the country. It is conviently located 1 hour from birmingham and Huntsville, 2 hours from Nashville and 4 hours from Memphis. The rural setting provides the perfect setting to relax and enjoy some quality family time.
What makes this House unique
Surrounded on 3 sides by water, Family Paradise offers an amazing lake experience. The gentle sloping lot minimizes the number of steps to the water. The house was desiged specifically for larger groups including beds in bedrooms for 14 and a huge kitchen table for 12. The kitchen is stocked with pots, pan and appliances to serve these large groups. The dock and swim platform are huge with fun for all ages. We also provide an open slip if you need to dock your owned or rented boat.

Perfect family weekend
We will definitely stay here again. The house had beautiful scenery in all directions . Loved the lake, swimming /boat dock and fire pit. Loved being able to stay a few days and not having to rent for the week! We've found our vacation location!!
Overall great place
Great place for a couple of families to go stay the weekend. Plenty of room and gorgeous view of the lake. Great dock for playing in the water and very open living space for a group. Also has a great porch all around the house. All around great weekend getaway.
Great stay at Family Paradise
Cannot say enough great things about this property. The location is excellent, right on shoreline without lots of steps to the dock, easily can view the children playing on the dock from the kitchen window, the kids loved the slide on the dock. Views amazing, very close to marinas, house was very clean and comfortable.
We had a wonderful time with our children and grandchildren at this property. We had one family with a baby. There was an upstairs bedroom where baby could be put to bed early in pac n play and the rest of the family played pool and ping pong downstairs without waking her. There are two boat slips so we were able to bring ski boat and fishing boat. We loved the table in the kitchen which accommodated all of us. Home was very clean. Grill was right outside the kitchen door. Very short walk to dock which was great for the old folks. Everyone enjoyed their stay.
Family Paradise Indeed
I’ve lost count how many times we’ve enjoyed this great vacation get-away, but it never gets old. So comfortable, such beautiful water, such an easy walk to the water, such great views- it has it all. If you are looking for a great family vacation, look no further. This is your spot!
