Arley House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Our cabin is located on a quieter part of Smith Lake.. We are on Rock Creek near Swayback Bridge. Swayback Bridge boat launch is just right around the corner. We have deep water, which is great for fishing. Our steps to the water are lighted and there is a green monster light under the boat dock. The green light attracts lots of fish!! It is fun to watch the fish swim by at night!

We have a screened in porch and a BBQ gas grill on the back deck facing the lake. The kitchen and den have beautiful cedar ceilings and kitchen cabinets (all cedar cut from the beautiful forest surrounding Arley).

There are three bedrooms. The master has one king sized bed, the second bedroom has a queen bed and the third bedroom has a queen plus a full size bunk bed with a trundle twin bed . There are 2 1/2 baths with one having a walk-in shower and the other a tub shower. There is a flat screen TV in the master bedroom and a TV in one other bedroom.

The den has a 48' flat screen TV with DirecTV and an electric fireplace. We have great cell and internet service. There is a beautiful cement driveway to the house with lots of parking.

Smith Lake is one of the cleanest lakes in the whole country and we love it!

Why Bob and Patsy Williams chose Alabama

We have lived and worked in Arley our entire life. We raised our children on the lake and are now spending time with our grandchildren on beautiful Smith Lake. We feel so blessed to be able to share our lake home with you!

Amazing lakehouse!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time at your lakehouse! The weather was perfect and the boat dock was exactly what we needed. Plenty of room to just chill and soak up the rays while we were not on the jet ski! The Monster Green light was so cool, you could see all of the fish swimming at night! The walk to the water is tough but well worth it!

The house was beautiful, pictures don't give it justice! The cedar woodwork was amazing!! We absolutely loved the screened in porch!! Many hours spent relaxing out there in the awe of nature!!

Thank you for sharing your home with us!!!

Pleasantly surprised

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised with the property. The home was very neat and clean, both inside and outside!

The only downfall, there were many steps involved with our stay --steps from bottom floor to top floor, steps to the water... we got our exercise!

We really liked the small town of Arley as well. Would gladly stay here again.

Fantastic property for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our group had an amazing getaway at this property last weekend. Obviously, it is in a great spot, with easy access to a boat ramp, grocery store and of course, the water itself. After a nice day on the water Saturday, it rained most of the day Sunday, but we still had an awesome time, thanks to all of the covered porch space. The owners were also very accommodating and always quick to respond to my questions. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice spot on the lake for a medium sized group.
