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.

My husband and I enjoyed an overnight retreat at Smith Lake Bed and Breakfast. What a gorgeous place and the hospitality was unbelievable! Highly recommend and will be returning. We stayed in the airstream camper.

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...

My husband and I stayed 2 nights in the Loft Suite. We needed a peaceful retreat, and Smith Lake B&B was perfect. The suite has all the amenities you could ever need - complete kitchen, fully appointed bath, comfy bedding, and sitting room with TV/DVD. The setting was ideal for us - private entrance and deck, view of the lake,...

We have been thinking about buying an airstream for future travel. So to try out one, we stayed at the B&B's airstream called "Townomo". It was awesome. It's on quiet section of property with awesome screen porch and outside shower. Jim and Alex were very accommodating and even took us to the Marina to get our rental boat. We will...

We recently stayed in the airstream overnight and we couldn't have been made more welcome by the owners. The airstream is up by the road with a short walk downhill to the rest of the bed and breakfast and the lakeside dock. The airsteam was a really good size, much bigger than we expected, with an outdoor area with a...
