About the property

Perfect for larger group gatherings! 5 bdrm/3.5 bath-Community Boat Ramp

This property is too good to believe. Just renovated with an entire new master bath (4'x8' Shower with 3 shower heads and 4 jets and double tiled benches), completely painted inside to include trim and ceilings in brighter colors, two entrance long driveway, covered pergola for all weather use, boat lift, new fire pit area, internet, direct tv, a/c repair, dock, bbq, deck/stairs, solar lights, appliances, linens, paint, repairs, landscaping, etc! In perfect shape again with new owners! (With the new property, no reviews are in yet. Check out my other property reviews at "Hannah's Hideaway" # 785909. ALL FIVE STAR REVIEWS! You'll see the level in which we take care of our property and guests!) Check out the pics for Hannah's Star. 3400 sq ft 5 bedroom 3.5 bath house. The kitchen is equipped with a professional 8 burner gas range by kitchen aid, and two refrigerators to accommodate the food needs for a large group. It is decorated with an Italian décor to include tiled backsplash, molded hood, wine chiller, and a butcher block island! The living room is equipped with a big screen 60inch TV, couch, chair and love seat with ottoman. The formal dining room seats 8 at the large table plus a smaller table of 3. Outdoor table seating includes 10 plus another six deck chairs. Truly a family gathering that suits everyone.

The master suite includes a big screen wall mounted TV, Jacuzzi jetted tub and stand up shower! Your own paradise within a paradise! All rooms are spacious. The property has a new rock fire pit with benches surrounding the pit (3200 lbs of rock brought in to make the perfect gathering area). Perfect for evening smores or stories by the fire. Tiki torches, dock and walkway lighting for safety at night and outdoor solar lighting of course. A lake property wouldn't be complete without a fabulous dock/slip with a swim deck/ladder for lounging! Deep water year round! Very clear just 200 yards (off the main channel to allow for easy access yet protection from the hectic main channel on Smith Lake! Truly a paradise!!! The pictures can't do the property justice!! Breathtaking views while relaxing on the deck with morning coffee or evening refreshments! This is a property that can bring a group back together to remember what is important in life...friends and family!

About Matt Hannah

Hello! I retired from active duty military in February 2018. I'll retire for good in a few years and fell in love with Smith Lake This is my second property on Smith Lake. The first is "Hannah's Hideaways!" VRBO # 785909 I plan to retire here because the place is sooooo beautiful!

Matt Hannah purchased this house in 2017

Why Matt Hannah chose Arley

This property is an absolute star with the gourmet kitchen and spacious layout. I also brought in 3200 lbs of stone for the fire pit and benches/pillars. The place has had a complete upgrade from fixing what was already there to adding a fire pit, deck rails, replacing rotten wood/boards, dock refurbish, etc Everything has been repaired, painted or fixed. The house is in perfect order. Check out my reviews on the other property. I'm a whole lot OCD!

What makes this house unique


4'x8' walk in tile shower with double benches, 3 shower heads and 4 jets

Dock with boat lift

Fire Pit

Room above garage

beautiful decks!

I plan to do my retirement on this deck!!!

A perfect lake retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Property was great for adults and young children. Easy access to the boat dock. Wonderful outdoor space. Indoor space was well kept, updated, and convenient for a multi family vacation. We will surely return for a lake getaway in the future!

Great views!

  • 5 of 5

Great views of the dock and lake. Very clean and suppled well with shampoo, conditioner, bath wash, toilet paper, paper towels, laundry supplies and kitchen supplies. The kitchen was awesome! The walk from the dock to the house not as far as some of the other homes we saw. We rented a pantoon Boat at one of the local marinas and the kids loved tubing and riding around the lake. Would highly recommend this property!

GREAT Time!!

  • 5 of 5

Our Spring break getaway for 4 of our families---12 people---was everything we expected and more. The home is beautiful and clean and comfortable. We loved the kitchen. The owners go the extra mile for your enjoyment. We all want to come again in the summer and enjoy the water. Stay here---you'll love it!!

Christmas gathering

  • 5 of 5

Had a blast in Hannah’s Star for our family Christmas. Talked, played games, slept and all ate too much. Even with the cold, we all enjoyed our stay in this home.

Next time we will get in the water.
