SPECTACULAR PRIVATE LAKEFRONT HOME ON LAKE WHEELER, AL

Wilson Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

This pristine, very private 3-bedroom, 2-bath ranch home sits on the most spectacular 'big water' view of Lake Wheeler, minutes from Florence and Athens Alabama. Surrounded by an acre of land in a rural setting, each room is decorated in Caribbean Casual, painted in bright calypso colors sure to make you feel like you are in your own private island resort.

This home boasts cathedral ceilings with large windows offering a continuous and uninterrupted view of Lake Wheeler. This home has a completely renovated kitchen, with new appliances, cabinets and countertops. The master bedroom and guest room feature French Doors that open onto the large patio where you can enjoy your morning coffee or an afternoon chat while rocking in a good old fashioned rocking chair. All bedrooms face Lake Wheeler, which is one of the premiere fishing lakes in the United States and host to many national fishing tournaments. Fish off the dock, relax with your favorite cold beverage on the large deck of the boat house, or just float on the water. Pontoon boat rentals are available at nearby Joe Wheeler Marina. The Robert Trent Jones golf trail is also just minutes away for you golfers. Shopping and restaurants are 20 minutes away in either Historic Florence or in Athens. If you are looking for a cosmopolitan environment surrounded by gourmet boutiques and fine dining, this is not the place for you. However, if you are craving a 'got-to-get-away' peaceful, private safe and beautiful place to recharge your spirit, then this is your spot. Whether you want a romantic getaway, or to reconnect with loved ones or friends, come relax in the serene beauty of this home. Take advantage of sitting in a rocking chair by the fire pit with your cold beverage

Talladega Race Fans: 'Bama House is located a little over two hours away from the track. Relish in both the race and the relaxation of the lake simultaneously! Go to the races, then come back and relax!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We recently spent a week in Bama House while our 10 year old son attended Space Camp. We have other sons ages 13, 7 and 13 months and Bama House was PERFECT for our family. It's quiet and peaceful and doesn't have all the modern trappings that we really needed to escape! Not hearing a phone ring? Priceless. :) The house has absolutely everything. In fact, we actually made a bet to that the house did not have (blank) and of course....it was there. From hair dryers to spices to whatever else you could possibly need. Everything was clean and well-kept. Our boys had an absolute delight playing in the children's room. Lets just say there is a TON of goodies in there for children. :) We caught a few crappie and enjoyed all the local restaurants, too. The neighbors are such sweet, caring people. I was sad when we left! All in all, just a wonderful getaway.

Beautiful Lake House

  • 5 of 5
We love, love, love your beautiful lake house. It was so clean and inviting! The home was furnished with everything we could possibly need or want. During our stay we enjoyed boating, swimming, fishing, jumping from your pier, grilling, and making s'mores in the fire out. We also drove into Florence one day for some shopping and then over to Decatur to the water park another day. The view from the back of the home is outstanding, it was so peaceful to just sit on the back and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings! Wonderful vacation for us and so enjoyed the "home away from home"!

Exceptional Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
Ever dreamed of living on the waterfront, well this is the perfect place to have that experience. Beautiful décor, all the comforts of home and much more. Morning, noon and night are never the same, as each brings it's own window into living on the waterway. Scheduling with Tom and Elaine was worry free and comforting. If you like to fish, swim, boat or just rest and relax you will find it here!

4th of July family getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here for July 4th weekend. Our second visit was as awesome as the first one. We enjoyed fishing, swimming, and relaxing by the fire pit at night. We had first class seats for spectacular fireworks both Friday and Saturday nights. The owners are very accommodating. We love this place!! Already planning our next visit which will be soon I hope!

My husband and I went to BamaHouse for a weekend getaway....no kids, no work. It was an amazing experience! It was everything we asked for and more. The owners are the sweetest people. They are very accomodating with everything you need right there. I think they kept a list going every time they went on vacation of what they needed and didn't have. The house is very clean and decorated so cute, bright, and cheerful. The back yard is so peaceful. It is wonderful drinking your coffee on the patio and watching the scenery or sitting on the swing under the awning and watching storms come in. The boat house is awesome! We went to the bottom pier and fished, floated in inner tubes, and jumped off the top! The neighbors are so sweet and have sweet dogs too. We had a blast and hope to go back again very soon!

What a beautiful, relaxing, fun vacation rental. Everything was so clean, bright, cheery and the view is incredible from sun up to sun down. It's such a nice place to relax, fish, and swim. We had a great time and plan to return again. It was hard to pack up and go home!
