The innkeepers Jim and Alex go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and entertaining as possible. From wonderful breakfasts and conversation to the occasional boat ride on the beautiful lake. We are frequent visitors and have found ourselves wanting to see Jim and Alex as much as we are wanting a relaxing, stress-free visit. The peaceful, serene... More

We stayed at Smith Lake for four nights and found it warm and inviting. The breakfasts were outstanding and were served inside or outside on the deck with spectacular views of the lake. The accommodation was clean, tidy and extremely comfortable. Jim and Alex made us feel very welcome. We would highly recommend staying here and hope to visit again.

This was our second time to stay at Smith Lake B & B and it's a wonderful place to get away. The accommodations were great...private and comfortable...and our innkeepers were the best. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for beautiful, peaceful and relaxing place to get away from it all.

Four extremely comfortable nights, four fabulous breakfasts, five totally relaxing days. The location is beautiful, the floating dock is amazing. Great for fishing and book reading. Alex and Jim were wonderful hosts, loved being with them, and their kitties. We stayed in the Loft, which has been redecorated and is very pretty with a very nice kitchen, TV and fireplace.... More

During a five month road trip across America, I had the opportunity to stay at the Smith Lake b&b. The location and view was absolutely breathtaking. With your own personal patio, fireplace, kitchen, and breakfast, you couldn't ask for much more.

My husband and I stayed in the ToNoMo at Smith Lake B&B the weekend of 22 and 23 February. We were looking for a unique and comfortable experience to celebrate our 21st anniversary and Jim and Alex really came through for us. The accommodations were incredibly comfortable and suprisingly lush. The vintage airstream felt like a step back in time... More

We were traveling through the area around Thanksgiving and spontaneously decided we wanted to stay on Smith Lake. What a great find! Our room was over the top comfortable with a great view of the lake. The breakfast was 5-star and our hosts could not have been more welcoming or accomodating. I'd highly recommend to anyone looking to get away... More

You have full use of their double tier dock including chairs, towels, kayaks etc.. The outdoor shower is awesome too. You really don't need to bring much more than a... More

Utopia and Smith Lake bed and breakfast are synonyms! The gourmet breakfasts, location on lake and friendliness of hosts will lure you back again and again. the hot tub is welcoming after a long can't get enough day of skiing. There's a cave across the bed and breakfast that you can access via their paddle boards. Fishing, sunsets.... Ahhhhh, going... More
