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.

ANOTHER GREAT WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Bama House and as before, we were not disappointed. Had a wonderful mini vacation. The weather turned out to be perfect and we caught our dinner from the pier. Fishing was great! Thanks again to Kallalys for the wonderful hospitality. The house is perfect and always so neat and clean. We look forward to our next visit!

Little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely beautiful place to vacation! We enjoyed making the Bama house our central location for a spring break getaway for our family. From the spectacular sunrises and breakfasts on the patio to the moonlit evenings by the fire pit, this is the place to enjoy a relaxing family vacation.

The house welcomed us with cheery décor, spotless cleanliness, and was stocked with everything we could need for our stay. Outside, the yard also had everything we could ask for to make the most of staying on the lake. We had backyard BBQs, bass fishing from the big boathouse deck, and hours of watching the serenity of the lake. The lake brought us many cool visitors…the blue heron, the trio of pelicans, and we were lucky enough to hear the call of the loons. The lake itself was AMAZING…different views at different times of day in different weather. INCREDIBLE!

While we loved being at the house and experiencing all it had to offer, we were also close enough to make day trips to nearby Helen Keller house and the Jack Daniels distillery in Lynchburg, TN. Joe Wheeler Park is only minutes away as well. We also ate a delicious seafood dinner at a nearby restaurant in charming Rogersville.

The Bama house is a little slice of heaven that was a perfect place to spend time with our family. We would recommend the Bama house to anyone looking for a place to unwind in today’s busy world.

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two grand daughters and I had a wonderful time at the Bama House. We

enjoyed fishing off the dock, relaxing out back and enjoyed all the comforts the home offered. The house was as good as the pictures and then some. Our 12 and 10yr old

grand daughters enjoyed playing the games at night before bed time. The kitchen was

Well equipped for any meal. The house was very clean.

Enjoyable Spring Break 2015!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the Bama House very much during the kids spring break in March 2015. We vacationed with our 12yr and 8yr old sons and my mother in law. Everyone really enjoyed the comfort of the house. The view was amazing and fishing off the dock was fun. We used the fire pit each night which was nice and peaceful. Making trips into town for groceries was easy as well. All around this was a relaxing vacation and we appreciated all the Bama House had to offer!

Second Time, Just as Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

When planning our return to Alabama there was never a question of where we were going to stay. After my initial visit in 2013, I knew "Bama House" was forever going to be a staple of my Alabama's trips. Different than my 2013 summer trip to Bama House, I decided to try it out during the winter. Just as warm, cozy, and welcoming as I remembered, Bama house kept its charm and love even during the mild January weather. It's remote location offered the peaceful and relaxing weekend we hoped for, yet it's close proximity to other cities gave us a list of things to do when we decided to go out. (Tip: We found Florence, AL to be so charming! 10/15 min away!) The kitchen is every chef's dream and every hosts desire. The open layout makes it perfect for hosting dinners or even to have some company to enjoy the fire pit on colder nights. The weather was certainly more nippy than my July visit, yet the warmth of Bama House is one that truly warms the heart of everyone who enters.

An Absolute Gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Bama house was absolutely incredible. I am so fortunate to have stumbled across this great property! The atmosphere is warm, welcoming, and comfortable. Whether you are an outdoorsmen looking to fish, a family on vacation, or looking for a couples getaway, it is clear that this property has everything you could ever want to make your stay amazing! I LOVED the panoramic view of the lake that could be found in every room. We spent our nights in the back yard utilizing the fire pit making s'mores and watching the stars. PERFECTION. The house is far enough from town to be quiet, yet close enough if you require necessities such as groceries or would like to grab a bite to eat. Downtown Rogersville has small town southern charm with great seafood and "mom and pop" dining options. I loved my stay and hated to leave!!!!!! Can't wait to get back
