THE HONEYCOMB RETREAT (GET-AWAY OR GET-TOGETHER)

Guntersville Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This cozy lake house was built by one of the original German Scientists who came to work in the space program with Werner Von Braun in the 1950's. A group of them built houses in this quiet cove of Lake Guntersville because it reminded them of their mountainous native land. They were known to spend hours working in their beautifully landscaped yards and then gather in the late afternoon to swim or float on rafts and visit with friends and neighbors in the quiet lake setting.

The house is perfect for accommodating a family who enjoys being together and entertaining friends of all ages. It is great for a family gathering because it has many open spaces for gathering inside and outdoors and plenty of comfortable beds. Great private boathouse (built in 2003) and party dock great for swimming, fishing or even star gazing. Nice flat manicured yard with jungle gym and rope swing for kids, ideal for backyard football.

Two small ponds for bait and catch habitat. (That will keep your kids busy). The boathouse is new and has one boat slip available plus one jet ski slip. The porch is covered and has an expansive view of the yard and lake. It is well protected even during rainy weather and in fact is very comfortable to sit and watch a storm blow by. The water is eight feet deep at the dock with a gradual slope to the shore making it perfect for swimming.

There is a large comfortable room for gathering around the fireplace in colder months, and a separate room for piling up and watching TV or movies. There is also a playroom/bunkroom for the kids with a separate TV. This abundance of living spaces make this a comfortable stay no matter your style of relaxation.

Lake Guntersville is world famous for its bass fishing. We have pulled in 5 pound bass right off the dock. Honeycomb is about eight miles west of the town Guntersville, and 20 minutes from Huntsville city limits. A public access boat launch is conveniently

located one mile from the house.

Bed configuration: Bedroom one, King-size bed. Bedroom two, King-size bed. Bedroom three, twin-size bunkbed plus one single. Bunkroom/playroom, 2 single beds and twin-size bunkbed.

Loved the front porch with ceiling fan and room for all to sit. Beautiful property with shaded areas at house, pier & boathouse was awesome!!! Plenty of parking for 5 cars and a boat trailer. House was plenty cold in fact too cold. Except for bedroom next to kitchen seemed to get hot from the sun in the window and door going outside but we just bought a small fan. Knobs on kitchen cabinets had some sharp edges but kitchen was well stocked with items.

Only sad part was our arrival time was the same time as the Lawn Care Person was there to cut the grass & blow everything:( Thought his timing could have been better planned. Basement bedroom needs a table to put suitcase or a rod to hang clothes. Rental Property person was VERY FRIENDLY and accommodating on the overflow of garbage left from the previous renters and gave us longer hours on departure day. We will go back!!!

Overall we were very pleased with the rental. We fished all day everyday with two boats so the boat house/slips were very important. Great outside property/location, however, driveway was a little bit tricky to navigate with a boat. The outside property could stand a good day or two of maintenance (i.e. shrubs trimmed, etc.). Older house that has been added to over the years but has been maintained. Could use some updating/TLC. Boat launch ramp is less than a mile from the house. No cell signal is a pain. With that being said, it is a great value for the money and we would certainly stay there again. Great for someone traveling with a pet or a group on a fishing trip.

Although this home was built many years ago on going refurbishment has made this a really nice vintage style lake house with all modern amenities. Our family really enjoyed the spaciousness, clean and well maintained lake house. We found the boat house to be particularly nice with dual boat lifts and at the end of the day is was nice to pull in and lift. The water is plenty deep with no mentionable milfoil present we actually went swimming dock side. We really enjoyed it and would do it all over again. Suggestion to owners have you lawn maintenance people get rid of the weedy beds...we did find poison ivy present close to walkways and the fish pond in the back had really stale water in it. Again small complaints for a authentic vintage lake house experience. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
