About Nicholas Hamlett
My parents, built this home in 1958. My father helped design the house with it's open living and dining area floor plan. I have kept some of the retro look by leaving an original dial telephone, but it has also been updated with granite counter-tops and wireless internet throughout the house. We are constantly improving the house. In 2012 we put matching ceramic tile throughout the whole house and got new bunk beds that have stairs to the top bunk, not a ladder,
I live just 3 miles away, also in Guntersville. My husband and I have lived here for 23 years. He is the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Albertville. We are still keeping it in the family. My son Nicholas manages the property for me.

Why Nicholas Hamlett chose Guntersville Lake
My parents paid my great grandfather $500 for the property. At first he did not want to sell it to them, but his heart melted when she started to cry, so he relented..
What makes this house unique
It is a jewel of lake front property, because it is not steep and keeps deep water year round. We have kept all the trees, which provides a lot of shade. It is in a cove which protects it. My favorite part about the house is the windows. In almost every room of the house you can look at the serene lake.
The retro look has been blended with modern convenience. For example there are modern granite counter tops and antique dressers.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Just arrived home from our wonderfully relaxing vacation in Guntersville! Gunterville is such a lovely town with beautiful veiws of the lake and mountains. The state park is breathtaking! This is a beautiful house that has all the comforts of home. I love to cook and the kitchen provided every gadget I needed. I also loved the beautiful stove! The house was emaculately clean. The view of the lake is breathtaking and the back patio is great. My kids loved being able to walk outside and fish and swim. The location and neigborhood is very safe and I didn't worry at all about my kids safety. Lyndall is a gracious and thoughtful hostess! My family is looking forward to going back!
