Guntersville Lake House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 9

Relax in your own private, waterfront home. The Guntersville Getaway is nestled in a small cove on scenic Lake Guntersville, which has 949 miles of winding shoreline.

There is a lot to do without even leaving the property. Relax on the large patio of this 1600 square foot waterfront home. Watch the sunset and grill out. Swing in the over sized hammock and take a nap. Watch the wildlife, which may include a Bald Eagle, Osprey or the endangered Whooping Crane. Great Blue Herons and Turtles are almost daily visitors. The turtles and ducks like to sun on the log next to the pier on sunny days.

Field and Stream Magazine voted Guntersvillle one of the top 10 fishing towns in the country. It is well know for it's Bass fishing and National tournaments. Guests often catch fish right off the bank or pier. The kids will love catching Blue Gills, Catfish or Bream.

Fun in the Sun for Everyone: The Guntersville Getaway Waterfront home is easy to find, just three tenths of a mile from Highway 431. It is located on Buck Island Shores near Gunter's Landing, across from the Guntersville Yacht Club. It offers a fun and inviting place to bring the whole family or it can be a romantic retreat for two. Children are welcome. We have children's books and DVD's. Create memories with your family that will last a lifetime. We have movies and books for grown ups as well.

Your private pier offers deep water year round. Summer and Spring bring boating, swimming, fishing, skiing, or just sunning. If you have had too much sun, shop till you drop in Guntersville for antiques and bargains. Or zip over to the Factory Outlet Stores in nearby Boaz and Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro.

First Class Golf and Family Attractions: It is centrally located to fiour first class Golf Courses: Gunters Landing, Cherokee Ridge, Robert Trent Jones/Hampton Cove and Goose Pond.

Your whole family can discover Cathedral Caverns, which has the largest cave opening in a public cave in the U.S. It is only 15 minutes away.

Spend a day exploring the Space and Rocket Center and Space Camp, in Huntsville, which attracts visitors from all over the world. Huntsville is less than an hour away.

In the fall and winter curl up next to the fire with a good book from our collection of hard backed books. Take a drive or a boat ride and treat yourselves to the explosion of fall colors.

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.

Nicholas Hamlett purchased this house in 1958

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!

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5
We LOVE it here. The manager was out of his way friendly, everything was so comfy and clean. We really like the "pay it forward" way that previous guests have left condiments, even juice! We were more than happy to leave anything we bought and didn't use as well. The kitchen was so well stocked, I couldn't believe it. My husband is a fishing enthusiast, I dabble, but I caught 16 FISH in one day!!!! we are already trying to decide when we can return...Maybe Christmas on the water? We hope so! (The only negative is the tiny shower)

Pretty view of Lake Guntersville

  • 2 of 5
The view is really pretty and it was peaceful the 8 days we were there. The last 3 days we were visited by geese and all their babies of various ages. They came up into the yard to eat and then departed after spending about 30 to 45 minutes.

If you don't swim then be aware the water access from the shore is incredibly rocky. I'm one of those non-swimmers but I love to get in the water on a raft. Needless to say i only got in the water one day.

Also on the negative side, the grass had not been cut in so long it had gone to seed. There were dead flowers in the pots on the patio.

The house was clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked. However, there are still some items needed in the kitchen. The only bowl big enough to make a salad in is cracked in the bottom. You need to add a few more large bowls. There are no small, sharp knives (only steak knives.)

The owner, Lyndall, was very easy to work with. There were a few miscommunications with the manager, Nicholas, but it all worked out.

Great Location for Brothers/Uncle Annual Trip

  • 5 of 5
My 2 brothers and uncle get together each year for an annual fishing trip. In the past we have done a houseboat on Dale Hollow, floating cabin on Nickajack, cabin on Tim's Ford. This year we decided on the legendary Guntersville Lake. After selecting the cabin it was easy to get in touch with Nicholas (the owner's son) to make arrangements. He was friendly and provided us with all the information we needed. The house was perfect for out needs. It was clean, spacious and well stocked. We cooked almost every meal and never had any difficulty finding what we needed. We even fried fish one night and found a huge iron skillet that was perfect for the cooking. The dock was great for out two fishing boats and also provided great fishing opportunities. We actually caught as much off of the dock as we did out of our boats. NIcholas called one day and dropped by to check on us and make sure we had everything we needed. Bottom line: our best trip so far in terms of lodging and fishing. We are already looking forward to next year's Guntersville Getaway!!

Paradise on the lake

  • 5 of 5
The property was great. Lyndall was grateful to let me bring my 4 legged friends. We could not get them to get in the SUV when it was time to leave! They loved it!!! The location was great. Right on the lake and far enough from the street the doggies were safe and had a great place to run. We grilled every night and set on the patio. Wonderful. All the bedrooms had sliding doors so you awakened looking at the beautiful lake. Can't image how romantic in the winter with fire place going and it being cold outside. If I owned the house I would never rent it because I would want to live there or stay there all the time. My husband and I have had a hard year and I have been sick and it was well worth the rental fee and Lyndall was great to work with. We will be back next year!! Lyndall thank you for everything it means allot to me and my husband and Bob, Daisy, Joey, Bart, Susie, Chi Chi and BeBe said thank you:). God Bless!!! Tammy and Gene

We had a fantastic time at Guntersville Getaway. It's one of the prettiest spots on the lake. The house is lovely, clean and comfortable. The views are beautiful from every window. A great place for bird watchers! It's closer to the water than it looks. We'll Be back!
