Why Keith chose Crane Hill
Privacy and a great view, located on the cleanest, clearest lake in the state. The nearest boat ramp with ethanol-free gas is only 1.5 miles away, by water and by road. The nearest bait and tackle store is only 6 miles away. A striper fishing guide offers dock pick-up and drop-off. Trout fishing is available year-round, below the dam (25 miles away by road).
What makes this House unique
Flat circle drive entrance, with parking a few feet away from the front door. Space for up to 4 boat trailers parking. The 500 square feet screened porch has eyebolts and carabiners for 2 hammocks. A staircase leads just 32 steps down to a path to the waterfront deck at the ramp to the covered dock with mini-fridge. A point of land blocks wind and waves from rocking the dock, yet you are only 50 yards to big water. Renter's use of canoe, kayaks, paddleboat and standup paddleboard are included. A yellow rope marks the hiking trail to Cap'n Jack's hollow. Rock Creek Marina is only 1.5 miles away, by water and by road. The covered lower deck allows for rain or shine outdoor cooking, with a sink and a charcoal/LP gas combo grill (LP gas and charcoal are provided). Available upon request are an LP cooker with an iron skillet and a boiler pot with basket and/or a small Traeger pellet grill (LP gas and pellets are provided).

Awesome vacation spot
This was an awesome vacation spot. We relaxed and enjoyed the cabin and the water. Will definitely go back!
The house is extremely accommodating. You have everything you need. Great cove for swimming. Cool little trail to walk and explore. Highly recommend.
Smith Lake Soirée
Gravel county roads lead you to a forrested oasis atop a cliff. Unbelievable view, tons of toys, and plenty of room. I will be back soon. Hopefully you'll have a zip-line by then hint hint. Thanks for having us!
Does it get any better than this?
We had an absolute blast at this cottage. The owner included so may thoughtful little extras. Water toys, kayaks, canoe, pedal boat, life jackets, fridge on the dock, chairs on the dock, outdoor sink, chimenea w/ firewood, propane heater on the massive screen porch, two TV's with Dish HD, bluetooth player, hi-speed internet... I could go on and on. The views from the three porches are great. We had a few minor mechanical challenges and the owner responded with in minutes. Don't miss the hike through he woods to the "Captain Jack's Hollow". The kids and grownups got such a kick out of our little adventure. The area around the dock was like a private cove where we paddled and fished - sheltered from the wind and passing boat wakes. But, we were on "big" water for skiing and tubing in 30 seconds. Not sure it gets any better than this.
Absolutely loved the week we spent at this hidden gem! Everything was as mentioned and pictured in the description and pictures and much more. Definitely recommend to anyone! Very cozy. Will definitely be renting again in the future!!!!
Great Week at the Lake
House was great. Loved the multiple decks. Kitchen was amazing. Canoes and kayaks a plus. We had a fantastic spring break; friends with no kids one weekend, friends with kids the next. Everyone seemed to have fun time and ready to plan return trip. Minor plumbing issues and tub drainage kept off the last star.
The upstairs toilet water supply valve has been replaced, reducing the tank refill time from 3 minutes to 1 minute. The tub drainage issues have also been resolved. Thank you for staying and for your review.
