Description from owner


Welcome to 'Magnolia Manor' in Crane Hill, AL in Cullman, Al near Bremen. We named it this because the area has abundant 'cowcumber' magnolias growing everywhere. The physical address is 128 County Road 327. On Google Maps just across the lake (West Side) from the Bridge at Trident Marina next to the peninsula. Boat Dock in place! Dock Fishing and site-seeing excellent. 15-20 minutes from Interstate 65, the major highway artery from Mobile, AL to Chicago, IL. See smith-lakehomes dot com

We are on the Western side of Cullman County, the East Side of Lewis Smith Lake across the water from Trident Marina, formerly called Ryans Creek Marina, near Bremen, AL. To go by land, it is just 2-4 minutes away. We are 8/10 of one mile from the Trident Marina, formerly Ryan Creek Marina. Our spacious, non-smoking home, will help you get away from city life and enjoy the easy-going pace of the Northern Alabama countryside in the foothills of the Appalachian chain. Whether you choose to stay in Spring, Summer, Winter or Fall, you will feel at home while only an hour away from Birmingham and Huntsville.

Perfect for family, family reunions, church meeting, conferences, corporate meetings, professional continuing education courses, and/or company retreats. To find us on Google Maps, just find Ryan Creek Marina (now Trident Marina) on County Road 222. Magnolia Manor is 2/10 of one mile West of the Marina by land or by boat, just across the lake next to the peninsula that juts out on the map. Coming from I-65, we are 7.1 miles West of Interstate 65 down State Highway 69. After driving 7.1 miles on Hwy 69 South towards Jasper, one turns right or West onto County Road 222 at Hwy 69 mile marker 228. Head West on Cty Road 222 up the hill 1.5 miles where you will find a 4-Way Stop sign and a grocery/gas store called 'JD 4-Way.' Keep straight on 222 another 5.2 miles and you will come to Ryan Creek Marina. Go 8/10 mile further on 222 and turn right onto Cty Road 327 into Sunrise Pointe Estates Subdivision (there is a sign there). We are 1/10 mile on the right, the first drive on the right (Lot 2) with a concrete drive leading down into the front of Magnolia Manor. You have arrived!

Magnolia Manor is a hide-away overlooking Smith Lake placed upon a rolling hillside about 270 feet from waters edge where we have 140 feet of water frontage and plenty of parking at and around the house.

The upper deck/balcony is perfect for sunbathing, just hanging out, BBQ's, cooking relaxing, boating, fishing or skiing. Put in your boat just across the Lake at Trident Marina (Ryan Creek Marina), tie down your motor boat or pontoon at our boat/swim dock after a day of swimming, water-skiing or fishing for large mouth bass, spotted bass, striped bass, bream, and crappie, and enjoy the beautiful sunset over the lake. Tie up at our boat dock. We are in a cove and there are no rough waves coming in.

Broadband Internet -WiFi from Wild Blue Satellite internet.

A newly opened 1455 Acre plus OHV (Off Highway Vehicle Park) is only 15 minutes away. The County of Cullman, AL built and maintains this Park called 'Stoney Lonesome.' Very popular with folks driving in from AL, TN, and MS. According to the Birmingham News article on June 12, 2008, ' The Cullman County Commission bought the land - seven miles southwest of the Interstate 65 exit at Dodge City - in 2012 for just more than $1.8 million. Much of the money came from an Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs grant designated for an OHV park. 'By the fall, when we plan to be in operation, we'll have some of the basic trails open for the ATVs, the motorcycles, the mountain biking,' Sellers said.....rock crawling, so 4x4 vehicles with oversized tires can crawl over large boulders or up steep inclines, Sellers said. The county plans to get rock crawlers to help design and build that section from quarried boulders.....When we bring it out, we want it to be of a standard that there is not anything to compare to it...An expert in trail construction will be brought in to teach county workers how to build the trails, so in the future they can maintain them or make changes, Sellers said.

Magnolia Manor bedding is as follows: 1 King Bed (sleeps 2); 2 Queen Beds (sleeps 2 per bed);2 Twin Bed sleeps 2; 2 Futon Sofa/Beds (sleeps 2 per futon); 5 Bunk Beds (sleeps 10 total in Bunks); 1 New Leather Sofa folds out and sleeps 2. Total of 24 can sleep in beds! Extra couch available as well, would make 25!

Lewis Smith Lake is a Southern Company reservoir in North Alabama. The three-fingered lake was created by Alabama Power to produce hydroelectric eco-friendly power and improve river traffic conditions on the Black Warrior River, as well as to provide recreation opportunities.
