Welcome to "Hidden Gem" on Smith Lake. A mountain lovin' girl married to a lake lovin' boy found the perfect home to fit both of our loves. Hidden Gem provides guests the feeling of being nestled in a mountain cabin retreat while being located on beautiful Smith Lake. Our home has brought many Woosah (defi: tell someone to calm down and relax) moments for us that we would like to extend to you.
This cabin is our family's vacation spot, but we would love to share with others when we are not there. Hidden Gem is a 3 bedroom 2 bath log cabin nestled in a cove located on the main channel in the central part of the lake. It is perfect for families with small children who want a secluded spot to swim or fish without worrying about boat traffic. The home is located just minutes from Duncan Marina (where boat rentals are available).
The upstairs loft boasts a fantastic owners suite with a queen size bed, private bath with a spa inspired shower and relaxing sitting area with large flat screen TV, DVD player, and Wii play station. Downstairs hosts the remaining two bedrooms, bathroom, living room, and kitchen and dining area. Bedroom 1 consists of a queen size bed and has a TV and DVD player. Bedroom 2 has two futon bunk beds (futon folds out to full-size on bottom and twin on top). The living room has all leather furniture, flat screen TV, DVD player. There is a large video library available for your viewing enjoyment.
The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, including a gas stove, fridge, microwave, toaster, and coffee maker. There are also utensils and spices available for the avid cookers who like to whip up delicious meals! A charcoal grill is available for the grill masters as well.
In addition to lake access from our 10 X10 swim pier, our home is located across the street from the neighborhood rec area that has a tennis court, basketball court, and football/soccer field. We do offer the use of any equipment we have (soccer ball, tennis racquets and balls, basketball, archery equipment) for our guest to use during their stay.
The neighborhood boat launch is located just over 1/2 mile from our home and there is space available to store you trailer at the house.
The outside of the house has a sloping walk way down to the swim pier. We offer a canoe and aqua lily pad for guest to use for their enjoyment while here. There is a large fire pit for you to huddle around during the cool fall evenings and make s'mores or just enjoy some music from the outdoor speaker available. Or you might just want to enjoy some quiet reading time in the hammock that overlooks the lake. During chilly winter months you may just want to cozy up around the wood burning stove in the living room with a book or movie. The relaxing options are endless!
This home has been a wonderful place for our family to relax and reconnect, we hope that you will enjoy it as much as we have. We look forward to having you as guest in our home and sharing in your own Woosah moments!
(Is considered seasonal water and water levels fall low in late fall through the winter)
UPDATE 10/20/2016: We have recently added an additional vacation rental on Smith Lake that has year round water and a single slip boat dock with swim pier. Please feel free to check it out as well at VRBO #927680
We are a busy family that lives in the Nashville, TN area. We decided we needed a place that we could escape the craziness of our everyday lives and reconnect with each other and nature. Hidden gem has been the best move we ever made! We want to be able to have other share in these types off moments too! We hope you will enjoy your time here as much as we do.
This property offers seclusion while still being on the lake. We try to offer things that will allow you to take a step away from your busy life and just reconnect with your family and the outdoors.
We fell in love with this property the second we arrived! The living quarters are all very clean and well-maintained, and just so cozy. We were a group of four adults, two children, and two dogs, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The weather was perfect to spend most of the days outdoors though, so we enjoyed sitting down by the dock, hanging in the hammock, snacks and dinners at the picnic table, cooking steaks on the grill, and winding down by the fire pit each night. The house sits on the end of a cove on the lake, so I imagine that even in the busier seasons it's still pretty private. Kitchen was well stocked and we made all of our meals there. There was not a lick of traffic, and the only sounds we heard were the sounds of nature (and a few happy Alabama fans off in the distance). Thank you for letting us use your cabin, and for welcoming our four-legged family members! We all agreed that we would most definitely book this cabin again, next time in the summer so we can enjoy the lake!
The cabin was great and so much fun for our family! Very clean, kitchen was well stocked, plenty of towels, and comfortable beds! Such a great area to visit and Haley was very helpful and easy to work with.
Hidden Gem was one the Best VRBO vacations we have experienced. We have used VRBO several times in many different places. We wanted a place on the Lake to have our youngest daughters Sweet 16. Many of our family live in the area. Pictures do not do this place justice. From the moment we drove up we were impressed with the surrounding scenery & the cabin was Beautiful. It was stocked way beyond what typical rentals have. The outdoor area was perfect for a family gathering. Tge firepit was very cozy for the first cold night of fall. Our older family enjoyed the wrap around porch & sitting area. The upstairs sitting area was perfect for the teens to enjoy watching movies. The cabin is stocked with many DVDs, both older & recent releases. I can't say enough about this wonderful place.it was also very close to the area shopping plaza, everything within a 10 minute drive. It definitely exceeded our expectations. We plan on renting Hidden Gem again in the summer. I will also mention, that the Smithing's were so helpful, very informative and accomadating.
We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. We were here for my nephews wedding in Carbon Hill and the cabin was the perfect get-a-way for our family! It was very clean, well decorated and had all the essentials that we needed for a long weekend! Would definitely recommend.
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful cabin. It was somehow roomy and cozy all at the same time. I loved sitting on the porch with my coffee in the morning. We were hoping there would be water at the dock, but we had a great time, none the less. The owners have thought of everything. It's like a home away from home.
Awesome place to spend some family time and the owners are exceptionally accommodating! We had a rare gathering of family from all over the US and this turned out to be an ideal place to meet. We will be back! :)
