Was a very nice and welcoming home. Everything you need and mor
The house was very clean with comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms. House also very well stocked with household necessities. There is a lodge on the lake that we rented a fishing boat for the week. We also rented a motor for the boat available with the house for the week and a pontoon boat for an afternoon. Short six mile drive to Alexandria. Wife and I stayed along with our 2 adult children and their boyfriend & girlfriend. Largest fish we caught included 27" dogfish, 25" walleye & 25" northern along with several smaller northern and crappie by trolling with crankbaits outside the weeds. A lot of weeds around the dock but fish are there.
Our family of four has been vacationing in the Alexandria area for 16 years. Last year we stayed home with a new puppy! We were so happy to find a new place to stay that welcomed pets. Our black lab loved swimming at the boat landing and thought she could do the same at the cabin. She jumped off the dock into the muck and sunk! Needless to say she got a good scrubbing . Her adventure resulted in a trip to the vet in town and three prescriptions to treat “swimmer’s tail”. She rested the rest of the week! The rest of us fished and fished. The sunnies and crappies were biting like crazy just off the lily pads all around the lake. We also caught a few northern and bass. The weather was not the best, but when it rained we had plenty of game, puzzle, and movie choices inside the cabin. There were special touches around the cabin that added to it’s comfort and convenience. We truly enjoyed our stay and look forward to next year! Thank you.
Relaxing stay on Smith Lake!
Immaculately clean cabin equipped with everything we needed. Five stars all around!
Our annual retreat
We look forward to our stay here. Everyone is friendly and easy to work with. Clean and bright place to rest and relax. Fishing was good (and tasty).
Excellent lake home!
4 night stay with entire family. The home was clean, comfortable and lots of room outside for the children to run and play. Fishing was slow to start, but last day, lots of crappie and sunnies off the dock. Thank you Pete Reuss for giving us the opportunity to stay at the Smith Lake Retreat.
