About the property

"Hidden Gem" On Smith Lake, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10+

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

About Haley Smithing

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.

Why Haley Smithing chose Arley

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.

Nice cabin in its own secluded lot

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice house with plenty of space for 4 adults and 4 young kids. It was nice to be in a more isolated lot than some of the surrounding houses.

Great Christmas Holiday Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house was charming, well furnished and appointed with many amenities. It's location tucked away on a slough, made it feel like you are in the mountains. It's close to Duncan Bridge Marina and Arley for local shopping and Jasper is not that far away. The large kitchen had everything we needed to prepare a Christmas meal for our family and the dining table was great for a family gathering. The wood burning Buck stove provided added warmth and charm of a log cabin. We did miss TV but the movie selection kept us entertained. We would consider renting this again although we couldn't tell from the low water level that there would be enough room to navigate our boat in/out of the slough.

One of the best places we have stayed at on Smith Lake!

Owner's Response: Tom, I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your holiday time spent at Hidden Gem. I did want to let you know that in the spring when water levels are back up there is ample room to navigate a boat in/out of the slough. We have 26 ft. pontoon that we park at the swim pier on a regular basis with no problems. If you would like to visit again we would love to have you back! Thanks, Haley
