Guntersville Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

Pate Lake House is your gateway to spectacular Lake Guntersville,a 70,000-acre recreational paradise which boasts over 950 miles of shoreline and a reputation as the top largemouth bass fishing lake in the country. Boating, duck hunting and eagle watching are also popular sports in the area.

Enjoy a relaxing retreat to nature in a 2 bedroom + sleeping nook/1 bath lakefront home! This privately owned house sleeps 8 with two private bedrooms plus an additional cozy sleeping nook off the kitchen area and a daybed area in the spacious living room. Perfectly located on a one-acre secluded lot with over 200 feet of lake frontage, this home has spectacular views from the great room and private wooden deck. For the boating enthusiast, enjoy the home's private 50+ foot dock with electrical outlets, fresh water and 6 cleats. Water depth is about 8 feet so most boats should fit easily. Launch your boat from the South Sauty Creek Fishing camp only 2 miles (by land) away. Enjoy the firepit, hammocks, wonderful views from the deck and have fun on the lake, whether it is swimming, fishing, boating, sunning or relaxing.

This charming lake house is centrally located in Langston in the South Sauty area of Lake Guntersville. It is located about 14 miles south of Scottsboro and about 19 miles north of Guntersville on the east side of river.

About Kari Pate

This property is owned by three brothers (and their families) and was originally built by their parents in 1949. It has been renovated since then and remains a great family getaway.

Kari Pate purchased this house in 1949

Why Kari Pate chose Guntersville Lake

We have been 'coming to the lake' all of our lives and love the natural beauty of the area.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite things to do are fishing and relaxing. If you want to rent a boat, Guntersville State Park is a 25 minute drive away

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back! Thanks for all of the hospitality and communication. We have never been anywhere with such support. The lake is beautiful and we couldn't have asked for a better time...the fishing was great too.

A Great Fishing Trip With Friends

  • 5 of 5

Selected the Pate House from the VRBO HomeAway web site and were very pleased to find that it was as good as advertised. There were (5) of us staying for a week of fishing and relaxing and we were very successful at doing both. The cabin was very comfortable, sleeping arrangements met our expectations, and most of all, it was completely stocked with all the comforts of home. The owners are two of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of doing business with and were very accommodating and quick to respond to any questions or concerns we may have had. The boat dock was great, allowing me to tie off my bass boat every night with electrical outlets for charging the trolling motor and fresh water and a water hose there to accommodate the fish cleaning. I brought along a portable fish cleaning station that I situated on the boat dock which made cleaning the fish very convenient. The fishing was very good, catching bass, crappie, channel cat and even some striped bass. Although we never got the opportunity to use the fire pit, it was situated overlooking the lake and would be a great place to spend some time unwinding after a fun day on the lake. I have rented several cabins at various lakes for fishing and would rate the Pate House as one of, if not the best, place I have ever stayed at. As the cabin is situated at the top of a hill, the view over the lake is spectacular. I would highly recommend this cabin for your next planned vacation as the cabin, the lake, the view, the fishing, and, most of all the owners are all first rate. I would definitely recommend the Pate House if you are considering a vacation in this area any time in the future.

Owner's Response: Wow, wow, wow! Thank you so much for your very complimentary and detailed review! It means so much to us that people can enjoy the home, lake, views and fishing (though you had better luck/skill then us) as much as we do. We are so glad it was comfortable for you and that you appreciated the little touches which make it so much more enjoyable. We stay at the lake house often ourselves and want it to feel like "home away from home". We also like to try to make the booking/stay a simple yet personal experience and am glad you felt we were successful. Thanks again for the great review and hope you can enjoy the firepit next time!

Second Time Around as Good as the First!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at The Pate Lake House for our second time in 9 months. We love this house, the fire pit, hammocks, dock, boathouse, view, ability to leave the boat in the water all week...not to mention the hospitality of the owner. The rental process is so easy and ideal, it's like dealing with a friend. The house is so clean too! What's not to love about renting this house?! That's why we drove 7 hours from Cincinnati again! Fishing for bass is our main goal and I'll share the lure we had our best luck with both trips to The Pate Lake House...Zoom ultra vibe speed worm in June Bug. Bassmaster Elite fans will recognize the name of the guy that gave us that tip years ago...Brent Chapman. This Spring trip gave my husband a 6 3/4lb large mouth caught on the ultra vibe worm! It worked best last summer too! Hope that helps any future renters catch an even bigger one than the hubby's!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us a second time Nancy and family. It means so much to us that people like the home and lake so much they want to return, especially making the long drive! Thank you also for your kind words about the home and the booking process...sometimes keeping it simple is best! :) Congratulations on your husbands almost 7lb bass! We may have to start a Pate fishing competition for the biggest bass; renters there now just caught a 7 1/2lb bass. So far that's the record but now that you nicely shared the "how to catch big bass" secret, who knows? So happy you had a wonderful time and just let us know when you'll be back and we'll have the lake , fish and home ready for you!

Wonderful week on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We choose to rent a place on Lake Guntersville for our Spring Break this week, and were not disappointed. The accommodations were perfect for our family of three generations, including four grandchildren. The lake house offered magnificent views and was fully provisioned. It met all of our needs, and then some! We fished off the dock, and the kids played in the water every day. A short drive to the state park provided a nice mid-week getaway and even more scenery to behold. Evenings were spent roasting marshmallows on the fire and gazing at the millions of stars in the sky. If you are looking for a quiet get-away, I recommend trying the Pate Lakehouse.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review. Three generations of fun...wow! We're glad you had so much fun catching fish, swimming (though it's a bit cold in March), stargazing and enjoying the fire pit. Thanks also for letting future guests know about the close by and enjoyable Guntersville State Park. We hope you can return again to create more wonderful family memories and to enjoy the views!

Another Great Stay at the Pate Lake House!!!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Lake Guntersville again this year for the Anglers Choice Tournament of Champions event (255 teams fishing). We decided to book the Pate house for the 2nd time (booked last year for the same event). As always the house was amazing. We were able to park 3 full sized tow vehicles and 3 21 foot bass boats with no issues. There was plenty of room for all of us (6 adults) to sleep and "live" for a week with no issues. Having this "home away from home" atmosphere is awesome and makes for a great time.

If you are coming down to Guntersville to either spend the week with the family or fishing an event, I highly recommend this house. Kari is amazing and extremely helpful if your have any needs/questions. We will definitely book again if we find ourselves down that way in the future!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so very much for taking the time to write such a great review. It means a lot to us that you choose to come back each year and we're thrilled it feels like your home away from home! It's good to know how many and what size boats and trucks fit too. Glad you did so well in the fishing tournament and we'd be honored to host you again,

GREAT VIEWS

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for some much needed r&r and definitely found it here. The house is very cozy and comfortable with amazing views of lake and mountains. Very quiet,almost secluded area yet close to whatever you need. Great fire pit area also. The property is clean and maintained. Definitely go to the south sauty creek cafe. Tasty food and amazing people. We travel a lot and have rented several houses in different parts of the U.S., and we have never had such good communications with owners or managers as we did with Kari and Bob! Such wonderful people to work with and they make sure you're prepared and happy. They are very quick with deposit return and follow up emails, phone calls to ensure you enjoyed their home. We will definitely be back!

Thanks Kari and Bob!

We hope you can come enjoy the lake magic with us again!

S. Sauty's new boat launch is 2 miles away (by land and water) making your boat launch easy and fast. Guntersville State Park rents boats also and is 25 minutes awy. There's also shopping nearby: the Factory Outlets in Boaz or the famous Unclaimed Baggage Center in Scottsboro. Our home is also near 2 more great state parks: Bucks Pocket (great eagle watching) & Cathedral Caverns.
