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.

                                              We had a gathering here for spring break. There were 11 of us coming from Virginia, Texas and Arkansas. Everything was as described and pictured. Cody’s cabin and the grounds were beautiful! We had a great time and would definitely consider this listing again. Thanks, Larry, for everything! Oh, yes, a beautiful bouquet of flowers awaited us on the bar. Such a beautiful extra touch.

                                              Spending Christmas with the family in Cody's Cabin was an absolute pleasure. The warm feeling of decor and having everything there ready for use was a plus. We will defi felt be coming back hopefully this spring!

                                              This will go down as one of our best Christmas’ ever. We all enjoyed it so much.

                                              Beautiful, peaceful cabin on Smith Lake. It was everything we were hoping for and much more. I would recommend this cabin to anyone!

                                              love this cabin, what a lake cabin should be. Located on a beautiful part of the lake with clear water.
