Reviewed July 22, 2013

This B&B is a must see if you are traveling in the area. We used this as a stop on our way to FL. Wonderful surroundings. The lake is awesome. Super clean, no odors, really warm----great for swimming! We stated in the To No Mo with our 8 year old son. He's on the autism spectrum and our hosts Jim and Alex went out of their way to accomdate us. Our son loved the To No Mo! Great food! Super clean facility! We'll be sure to visit again!

My best friend and I just spent 4 nights at this amazing home and even though it rained everyday but 1 we had the most wonderful time. Jim and Alex are the nicest most gracious hosts you could ask for and the home is beautiful and so comfortable. The lake is crystal clear and warm and has floats kayaks and paddle boards. They have not left out one detail to make your stay perfect. If you want a most relaxing lovely get away,this is it.

Alexandria is so warm and friendly. We immediatly felt at home and comfortable. No stuffiness here. Unloading was quick and we parked right close to our room. Very easy. 5 pm in June and the kids hit the water the momment we arrived. The paddle boards, canoes, rafts....anything you can think of, was available to explore the shore. What a treat!! We all had fun! We jumped off the boat house top! Whew! scary but fun. Great chairs to relax. PERFECT SUNSET!!!We did not grill, but next time we will. A wonderful covered patio for that just outside the room. I am soo happy we found this hidden gem and will return again in November for another stopover! Get ready for the L.A. Glassford 5! And Oh the breakfast was fabulous!! And the beds were super!

We knew we were going to love Smith Lake but had no idea how much we were going to love the Smith Lake B&B. Jim and Alex are without doubt the friendliest couple you could ever hope to meet. The B&B was incredible. Beyond an excellent breakfast to start the day they provided every thing anyone could ask for to get the full enjoyment of Smith Lake. Swimming, Kayaking, Stand Up Paddel Boards and even a boat ride around the lake. They managed to capture an atmosphere for us that we were not patrons but part of a close knit family. Both Jim and Alex went far beyond any realistic expectation to insure that we were in want of nothing. The suite we stayed in was large enough for our family of 4 including a kitchen and dining area from which we used for our other meals, a living room with fire place, a covered private porch that included an additional dining set, a living set and a porch swing :-).

We stayed in the Tow-no-mo (love the name) and it was awesome. I especially loved the golf cart that you can drive back and forth to the lake. Another thing I loved was the outdoor shower. The screened in porch was a nice touch with a TV both on the porch and inside the Airstream.
I can’t say enough about the wonderful hosts. They definitely spoil you and have everything from chocolates in the refrigerator to ice cream and colas. Alex’s breakfast was wonderful. I especially enjoyed the quiche and peach waffles.
The swim deck was another favorite. We enjoyed “swinging” on the hammock chairs and jumping from the deck and just relaxing drinking our favorite beverages and sunning. We also used the paddleboards and they had kayaks and fishing poles that guests can use as well. There was a charcoal grill by the Airstream and a gas grill under the gazebo. We cooked one night on the gas grill. The hot tub was private and a nice way to “unwind”.

This place is wonderful. We are so happy we found this place and can’t wait to go back.

Room Tip: If you’re looking for a unique place, stay in the Tonomo- Airstream. It’s one of a kind, and you wi...

Lovely stay! Lovely hosts! Loved all their traveling collections and great conversation. Breakfast was superb...went back for seconds! We'd gladly stay at any of their three rooms. Views are excellent, great setup, balconies, bbq, boat dock, etc!! Another weekend away can't get here fast enough and we'll definitely revisit Smith Lake B&B!

Absolutely loved it. Peaceful setting, very friendly owners, delicious breakfast. Private covered deck was a welcome addition. I also enjoyed the boat dock. Lots of water amenities and fishing gear, too.
