Smith Lake B&B is a real gem! The online pictures gave a very accurate portrayal, although they could never offer due justice to the magic of Smith Lake. Jim and Alex greeted us warmly and truly made us feel at home. Will absolutely be back soon!

Well, not officially but I want to say the Alex and Jim were helpful, friendly and went out of their way to assist us by hosting family during our recent wedding celebration. You may read in reviews by the family how much they loved their stay here, and how Jim calmly pulled their car out of a ditch after a...

What a wonderful place to stay. Scenery abounds from the deck of your room while devouring a lovely southern breakfast. As well enjoying sunrise and sunset. Jim and Alex are great hosts, to the extent of helping us out with his tractor to get our vehicle back on the road. Our visit included a scenic cruise around the lake, what...

These people were incredible. They stayed up half the night the first night as we were late getting in. My brother arrived early and they fed him dinner. The whole place is very cute, the rooms were excellent, with everything you need. I wish we could have enjoyed the lake,but we didn't have time, they have lots of toys. The...

Stayed 4 nights during our tour of Alabama. Beautiful property on the lake, rooms were pretty opulent for a B&B - granite countertops, and really well appointed. There is a fully functioning kitchen in the rooms in the main block, and this suited off as we bring food back from grocery stores to have for dinner (to save costs on...

Smith Lake B&B exceeded our expectations. The room (Dock Suite) was beautiful and tasteful with wonderful views and comfort. This was a great quick getaway from Birmingham. Jim took us on a great boat tour of the lake. We really enoyed the fireplace and the romantic feeling of the suite.

Always great conversation, gourmet breakfast guaranteed. Alex and Jim greeted me my first of a dozen visits worth a sunset ski on their boat. Made a visit for me. Get your reservation in. First visit? Try the tow no mo... Also, they are realtors... Not pushy! Delighted to share the lake, and their dock and toys with you.

We had a great three nights staying in the Dockside Suite. The only minor things we found at fault with this exceptionally well-run and beautiful establishment were: (1) the main number to reach the B&B gets forwarded to another number with a different area code and the message does not let you know you're reaching the correct establishment. We found...
