About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 1-12)

Lakeview property located in North Alabama.

This lake house rental is ideal for families to multiple family vacations for all year round. It has plenty of space to accommodate up to twelve people (more if you bring a air mattress). It is a southern hospitality house that will make you feel like you are home away from home.

Church groups are welcome! What a perfect place to vacation in the back woods by the lake and enjoy the beautiful nature around and have a great retreat for the youth or adult aged groups.

Everything you need is available at the property. Fully furnished, with linens, kitchen supplies, and more.

This property brings you to a great get away. It's very peaceful and quite. You don't have to book for just the summer months. We offer reservations all year long. Not only is it great for summer vacations and church groups, but we also welcome newly-weds for celebration of their honey moon.

Enjoy your stay at McClanahan Rental's lake house property, you'll be glad you came!

About Jimmy or Mary McClanahan

My husband and I are in our 50's. We have 2 daughters who are both married. We have 3 grandchildren. My husband is retired from his family business, McClanahan Hardware. I am a second grade school teacher in the Hartselle City School system.

Jimmy or Mary McClanahan purchased this house in 1999

Why Jimmy or Mary McClanahan chose Alabama

My husband has been coming to this lake since he was a child. His parents bought this piece of land over 40 years ago. He use to camp out with sleeping bags and a small boat. In 1999 the family built this wonderful cabin. It has given our family lots of fun times and memories. We enjoy sharing our slice of paradise with those who want a get away.

What makes this house unique

Smith lake is one of the cleanest, clearest lakes you will ever see. There are huge bass and beautiful stripes. The marina at Rock Creek has catfish, carp, and brim that will let you feed them bags a bread crumbs. Night fishing is really fun. There is a huge firework display on or around the 4th of July.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent vacation home for water fun and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this property do not do it justice. The home is perfect for a couple or several people. Can easily accommodate 12 people (3 couples and children). Everything we needed was there for us upon arrival. The owners met us at the property and gave us instructions for everything we needed. We have stayed other places at Smith Lake over the years, but this will be our choice for future stays.

My husband & I and our 15 yr old twin grandchildrem enjoyed the house, We wish we could have stayed longer. We had a family reunion on Sat June Arley. It was very well furnished. We took things like paper towel, toilet paper , salt & pepper but didn't have to use them. They furnished more than enough for our 4 day stay. Even though we didn't use them, we appreciated having life jackets & rafts, if we wanted to use them. The owner was very helpful. I suggest anyone not familiar with the area print out a map of the roads. Even with a map, we got lost every time we went out. If we ever are back up that way, we will definitely consider this house. It is very quiet & peaceful. Our grandson enjoyed the loft & our granddaughter enjoyed the basement bedroom & bath, We wil definitely recommend it to others.

Cullman is 30 minutes away. It is a wet city with lots of entertainment opportunities. The Rock the South weekend is held there yearly. There are nice restruants within 15 to 20 minutes from the house. There is a Piggly Wiggly for shopping. There is a Dollar General store close too. There are some restaurants on the water where you can ride your boat. There is a Urgent Care within 30 minutes.
