Overview

Guntersville Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

The perfect getaway place on the lake

Located right off of Hwy 79 between Guntersville and Scottboro, the cabin is close to Goose Pond Colony and Waterfront Grocery. Only a 5 min. drive to the Mink Creek boat launch, this lakefront cabin has great fishing, duck hunting, swimming and boating for a relaxing getaway in the woods. Perfect for any season or activity. Large dock for sunning and watching the world go by. Electrical hook ups for charging your battery at the dock. Boathouse is not available for boats though your boat can be left over night at the dock if desired. Canoe on premises allows you to enjoy the water at a slow pace. A screened in porch and large patio along with a hammock and swing give beautiful water views as well as plenty of wildlife to watch up close as well as as relax. This rustic lake house is reminiscent of old times at the lake. Pine floors, walls and ceilings give a casual feel but large great room feels big with kitchen/living room combination. Short drives to Goose Pond Colony for golf and dining, the quaint city of Scottsboro for shopping at Unclaimed Baggage and a short trip to Cathederal Caverns and Walls of Jericho for nature trips are all within a 10 - 30 minute trip of the cabin. There are about 50 steps from the parking area to the house. There is a railing and most people do fine. From the house to the dock is only about 10 steps. Great up close view of the water and wildlife!

About Gail Kimrey

I grew up spending weekends at Guntersville Lake and have wonderful memories on the lake with my family fishing, boating, swimming and just hanging out. Wanted my children and family to enjoy the same experiences that I had and for us to make many memories for years to come.

Gail Kimrey purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Gail Kimrey chose Guntersville Lake

Deep water(8-9 ft) for swimming and boating was a priority for us as well as being close to the main channel. The house is located close to the water, you feel like you are right by it from the house. You can hear the waves lapping at the sea wall at night, watch herons dip down and catch a fish and see fisherman catch fish after fish right by your dock. It is 45 minutes from our home, so a day trip, weekend trip or all week are all convenient. It is also close to the city of Scottsboro, so that a quick trip to town if you need Walmart or the grocery store doesn't take all day. Easy to find off the highway, but you feel miles away from home.

What makes this cabin unique

From the first time we walked into the cabin, I knew this was the one. We wanted a cabin that everyone could enjoy and not worry about 'messing up' but would enable us to sit and relax and enjoy the company of those around us. Everyone comments on how cozy and relaxing it is--they don't want to leave. From the screened in porch, to the stone patio to the large dock, there is a space for everyone to find their 'spot'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time and REALLY enjoyed the cabin. Much rest and relaxation - which was just what I (we) needed.



We found some kind of large green/white tree frog - and also ran into a few armadillo's -- I think we saw muskrats - not sure what else it would have been. And we heard coyote across the lake one evening.



The unclaimed baggage center didn't have anything we couldn't live without ! We did go to Cathedral Caverns and the Sauty Cave



THANK YOU!

ITS ALL TRUE !!

  • 5 of 5
Several things had me worried about this place..the pictures looked too perfect,price was too perfect,and it was booked and done within an hour with no hassle.While driving up from Fairhope,AL my fear was building the closer we got to our destination This was our vacation to celebrate our 17th anniversary and also the first time our family had been on a vacation in 5 years..this place HAD TO WORK.We arrived and my wife walked in and cried tears of joy as she surveyed the cabin.It was EVERYTHING we wanted and more.This is a place you walk in and it feels instantly comfortable like you have lived there for years,like a home.You can feel a sense of peace come over you immediately when you walk through the door.We came in at sunset and the view across the water towards the mountains was beautiful.That night was spent gathered around the fire pit and reconnecting as a family.The next day we wanted to be out the door by 8 AM to go sightseeing,but it was too hard to tear ourselves away and we didn't leave until 12:30 in the afternoon.Later that day it started raining and was freezing cold outside,but even that couldn't ruin things.After visiting a local attraction,we were tired and cold and just wanted to relax. While the kids curled up in the living room and watched a movie I went outside with a blanket on the screened porch to listen to the rain and ended up falling asleep right there. I would have slept right there if i hadn't got woke up and told to go inside.Waking up the next morning with our view of the mountains and lake outside NOBODY wanted to leave.The only way we were able to overcome the sadness of having to leave was to keep telling ourselves that we would be back as soon as possible..If you are looking for a quiet,cozy mountain cabin that is well thought out and has all the comforts of home,I highly recommend this place.Just keep in mind,it'll be hard to leave it behind.Thank you Gail for sharing this piece of heaven,it was just what we needed to refocus and re energize our family.Hopefully we will get back soon !

Cozy Cabin and good for a fishing weekend

  • 4 of 5
The cabin was as described and met our needs. The steps down are steep as mentioned but manageable as long as you're cautious. The owner is very easy to work with and made the transaction easy. A note to those with boats, if you have a bass boat that sits low, it may end up under the dock because of te height of the deck and tie offs. There is a small shore area that I was able to pull mine up on and leave while in from fishing. The boat ramp is less that five mintues from the cabin by vehicle and less than a minute by water. Great location, had everything we needed, and great for fishermen or fisherwomen.

Perfect Lake Paradise

  • 5 of 5
The minute we parked and looked down at this cabin, overlooking the lake, we knew were fixing to spend a much too short stay in paradise. It wasn't just the cabin that was perfect but the whole package. From the steps along beautiful native plant landscaping to the tip of the pier, this place was perfect for us. Pictures just can't describe how wonderful this place is. So quiet and peaceful. The cabin was clean and cozy with everything we needed except our food and clothes. Gail even has it stocked with kitchen staples and condiments so we only did light grocery shopping. The décor was so warm and fuzzy, but we spent much of our time outdoors fishing and sitting on the beautiful patio taking in the surroundings. We were so glad your cabin is pet friendly. Scooter(lab) loved that he got to vacation on the water with us. We left one time to unload the boat at the landing right across from the cabin, otherwise, we were settled in and loving every minute of it. Thank you, Gail and Family, for sharing your wonderful place with us. We got much needed R and R and plan to return ASAP!
