My family moved here 19 years ago from California, we wanted a quieter life style, we chose Guntersville for the beauty of the lakes and mountains. i was house hunting with my sister and her husband for a home for them, we found our lake home but in extreme poor condition, too much work for a move in ready home. I instantly fell in love with the location and the yard, i knew the home would be a project, the property looked like a park on the water, so different from the other surrounding lots, so at that point the idea of a vacation rental came to be, cattscradle comes from the first part of our last name and cradle is self explanatory!
jill cattaneo purchased this house in 2004
I instantly loved the property location and the park like yard, flat and family friendly, so many of the lake properties have steep slopes and driveways, this lot is flat and very enjoyable for all activities! The location is just a few minutes from our own home, which makes it very easy for me to meet and open the property myself, or for those who would like to stop by before renting to see if the home will work for their stay, I enjoy meeting the visitors, we have been blessed with wonderful renters, many whom have made this an annual vacation spot!!
The homes location is central to many enjoyable ammenities, my favorite are the blacktop walking trails along the waters edge,10 minutes away, if that. also the tennis courts at this location, the recreation center with the wonderful lap pool, kids pool, and large swimming pool with curved slides make a nice change from the lake for the kids or toddlers.Guntersville state park is about 15 minutes drive, also super walmart, and other stores..located in the city limits.
we wanted to take a winter break for a change, had several friends recommend this lake front house. it was too cold to swim, haha. but we had a wonderful time with friends and family around the stone fireplace in the great room. Had a wonderful selection of cookware, from crock pot, mixer, blender, cork screws, stone ware galore. bedrooms were cozy, new flat screen tvs in bedrooms and a large flat screen in great room, bring wii games, they have one also that we had a blast playing on. state park, eagle watching 10-15 minutes from house, gorgeous sunsets off the pier, love,,loved, the new large outside arbor, with built in benches, we brought charcoal for outdoor grilling, our friends have stayed at this house every summer for the last 6 years, we will be back. thanks so much for sharing this cozy, fun get a way!!! p.s loved all the wildlife and birds that were on the lake.. not sure where to post the star rating, but would give this one a 10 for sure...
We had a wonderful time. Plenty of room for us to do all our activities. Relaxed by the boat house during the day and watched the stars and moon at night-even though it was slightly chilly. The beds were very comfortable as were the couches. We loved the view from all those windows especially the reflections of lights on the lake at night! Plenty of room to spread out and enjoy. Well stocked and comfortable -Thank you for sharing you lovely lake front home with us.
We had a youth retreat in your house and had a great time!! The house, water and scenery were perfect. Plenty of indoor/outdoor space for all the activities we had planned. Thanks again for making our stay easy and pleasant.
Wonderful home for a family vacation! 6 of us ranging in age from 3 to 63 and gracious room for all! Everyone in our party enjoyed the spacious great room-- allowed us to spread with a sofa apiece. Property has so many places to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. Trees on border give a feeling that you have the area to yourself. Kitchen well stocked. Would recommend to everyone-- great experience!
Thank you for sharing your lovely lake home.
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Cattscradle along with my son in law and my daughter and her two young boys. The home was very comfortable. My wife and I took the room with the king sized bed and we noticed it had a very comfortable mattress. We ate a couple of our meals on the sofa in there watching TV. We rented a boat for a couple of days and enjoyed riding around on the lake relaxing and looking at the homes. The kids enjoyed the boat rides too. My son in law caught a large fish at the end of the pier and my daughter and my wife enjoyed going to the little shops looking for antiques.
We would come back.
We enjoyed our stay so much! The house was very clean and spacious. The outside provided plenty of spaces for entertaining. I loved the screened in porch. My husband brought his bass boat. The boat ramp at the house is a little misleading. The water was too shallow to launch boat at the house. Boat ramp may be ok for Sea doos but not for bigger water craft. However a public ramp is close by and he was able to dock boat at the house. By the way, fishing is great at Lake Guntersville. The teenagers loved the foosball table. I liked the convenience to town. We will definitely consider this home again for a family getaway.
We had an early check-in and the house was immaculate and ready for us to move in. We have stayed here many times over the past 10 years and the standards are always the same. The owners are accommodating and responsive to any questions. A really good experience at a great location on the lake. We even found an eagle pair in the process of building their nest in addition to the great fishing.
close to walking trails, tennis, rec center, state park, golfing, cathedral caverns, largest in the south.. space and rocket center.. huntsville botanical gardens, boat rentals....
