Loved everything about this place! Nice, clean and great hosting! Really cosy. Kitchen, quite big bathroom and an own livingroom(and of course a bedroom). We could borrow a canot and was taken on a boattrip for free. Lovely!

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The Kayaks are a good way to see the lake in the springtime. We hope we get the opportunity to host you again.

This is a wonderful bed and breakfast, the owners are so sweet, accommodating, and friendly. The Dock Suite had everything we needed (fridge, microwave, oven, dishwasher, fireplace, separate sitting room, private porch). Out on the dock they had paddle boards and canoes for your use, they even had fishing poles if you forgot yours. We will definitely be back! Loved...

We enjoyed a great first visit in the spring, and just this past weekend returned for early fall. We enjoy the privacy of the Loft suite, and it's well appointed and equipped. The view from the upper deck is even better in the fall. Jim and Alex are perfect hosts and prepare a great breakfast. We'll be back again soon....

Thanks for your review. Smith Lake is beautiful any time of year. It is especially nice in the late fall when the leaves are changing and the rock shoreline is most visible. The lake is serene and reflects the colors. Please visit us again.

We had the pleasure of spending a wonderful afternoon and night with Jim and Alec. They are the perfect hosts and really make you feel at home. Everything was perfect, our suite, our afternoon swim, the sunset cruise all around Smith Lake with Jim, to the delicious breakfast served on the deck overlooking the lake. Alec didn't just serve us...

We recently happened upon Smith Lake B&B while exploring the northwest corner of Alabama. This was the ideal break from hotels and offered us two days of fun on the lake. We picked up lunch and dinner groceries at the Publix in Cullman before heading to the B&B. The Loft Suite was spacious and spotless with an amazing sunset view...
