Guestbook comments from the manager
Have you ever just wanted to find that place that is sooooo peaceful.. A place to wonder in the woods to climb and enjoy the mindless activity of hiking and never being lost. Mesmerized by the waterfall in the springtime.



This is one of the most peaceful places I have ever been. The community is kind, helpful. The town of Phil Campbell meets your needs.



The beauty of the sunset, casting the golden hugh on the walls in the cabins. The quite, calm and serine pace.. That's what I saw, that's what takes me back time after time..

I'm a resident of Okeechobee, Florida and the owner of Rustic Style and Cabins, a retail store for the wilderness lovers. I am also a new Real Estate Associate with a local company. My family traveled when I was a child and we settled in West Palm Beach, Florida, where I lived for 25 years before moving a couple of times and settling in Okeechobee.

Nita Salmon purchased this cabin in 2006

I was visiting a friend in Huntsville. While they were working I went looking at property for fun. NO intentions of living in Alabama. I got with a local realtor to show me some places. The realtor had a guy (Mr. D) that just put this property on the market and he rode with us as we laughed and joked the whole 1.5 hours from Huntsville. I thought Mr D was pulling my leg when he said this was one of God's most beautiful properties. We got to the gate and walked through the trees. OMG! It took my breath away. I the ride home I bought the land. I camped there on my vacations for a year. When I went to visit my mom in Tallahassee. There was a log home seminar in town so we went. At the end of the seminar I was so impressed with Daniel Boone Log Homes, I bought this kit and built it on my piece of haven. This is MY vacation dream house. Life is different now and I have decided to share my home with you. I hope you love it and respect it. It was and is still my dream home. A year after I built my log home I became a Daniel Boone Log Home distributor in Okeechobee, Fl.

The property is 20 acres of hiking, wildlife watching, waterfalls (2), fishing, boating and BBQ's.

This is a a natural landscape and changes with the seasons. Like all natural environments, ALWAYS be watchful for wildlife critters, good and dangerous.

The first day after the home was completed I was there sitting on the front porch amazed at the view. As the sun set the golden hugh of the suns rays blanketed the porch. The natural color of the logs radiated with the sense of peacefulness. I remembered from where I came as a child to having accomplished this dream of a log home and I was grateful with the blessing God had given me. This home is truly a highlight in my life and I love the times I still spend there.

THE GREATEST ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
The trip started off a little rocky because we got lost trying to find the place, but Mrs. Solomon was quick to respond with trying to help us find it. The pictures don't do it justice because its just that beautiful inside and out. The view of the water is like a portrait .The kitchen and bathroom were well stocked with things we forgot. The sticky notes that Mrs. Solomon left around the cabin were very helpful as well as the wasp spray. Mrs. Solomon responded to text about local attraction in a very timely manner delivering great customer service. The only two complaints I have are the picnic table by the fire pit fell when we were sitting on it enjoying a bonfire and navigating a fishing spot was kind of challenging because we didn't want to be on anyone else's property. Those aren't really complaints just minor bumps in the road. Other than that the people in the surrounding towns were nice and friendly when we went to shop for groceries and supplies. I would recommend it to anyone and I look forward to renting again.

PS- Limit channels and no wifi is a plus it actually forces dialogue among friends and family.

A GREAT GETAWAY FROM IT ALL!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 really enjoyed our spring break vacation to this wonderful cabin! The decor is beautiful on the inside. It was very clean and cozy. The pictures and description in the listing accurately portrayed the property. My kids had a great time exploring the land! They were in heaven! I agree with the warnings from the owner, Nita....there is a big drop off to the water, so young children should be highly supervised! We did not mind having no internet access and limited tv channels. It was really nice to "go off the grid" during our stay. We did get a decent cell phone signal there.

My only suggestions would be to stock the kitchen with more cookware, etc and to possibly have a dvd player available for after dark movie viewing. (We just hooked up our portable dvd player to the tv and it worked just fine)

Thanks for the great place, Nita! It was exactly what we were looking for in our vacation! We created some great memories!

Your vacation cabin is 5 miles South of Phil Campbell, Alabama a small resilient community, locate in NW Alabama with remarkable history of survival. Our Rustic Style Cabin is near anywhere you need to be and nestled on 20 quiet, private , picturesque riverfront acres. On site hiking, two waterfalls and a lake front to fish. ALWAYS BE CAREFUL, This is a natural environment. Kept in true form. Wildlife, deer, and yes, snakes can be found.

45 m North Of our Rustic Cabin is the city of Florence, Alabama, Home of Helen Keller and where we invite you to enjoy and experience a northern Alabama town steeped in rich musical history while strolling through its Arts and Shopping District. You'll find 20th and 19th century buildings and homes of rich architectural history. They are waiting to make your visit a memorable one! Closer to home, 30 miles North is Russellville, The home of the Watermelon Festival - annual 'Watermelon Festival' is held each August in downtown Russellville, in which a carnival type event. The festival includes performances by popular local bands as well as a car and truck show.

The King drive in is just north of Russellville on Hwy 43. One of the few drive-in movie theaters still operating in Alabama, it plays currently released films during the spring and summer, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. The theater features old style speakers that hang on car windows, but also offers the sound track of films through FM radio broadcasts as well. ' Russellville is a nice town with restaurants, Wal-Mart, and shopping. Only a few miles North to Tuscumbia is Rattlesnake Saloon - In a Cave This unique bar/restaurant was built up under a bluff, with seating in a large cave and on top of the bluff. It's a one-of -a-kind experience, out in the country far from any big cities. There's water pouring off the bluff like a fountain. The food is great and affordable. There was a band playing in the cave area when I was there. They're only open on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and don't start serving beer until 5 pm.

To the South of Phil Campbell is Haleyville, Alabama. A town of plenty and the HOME of 911

Our cabin is sitting on the Upper Bear Creek Reservoir which is known best for its black bass (largemouth and spotted) fishing, but fishing for crappie, catfish and bream is good also. The lake is renowned for its trophy bass fishing. Fish over 5 pounds are common, with 8 pound and larger bass being taken each year. Upper Bear has been ranked first-5 times and second-3 times, for the least number of angling hours exerted to catch a bass in excess of 5 pounds.

For activities out of the water, the Bankhead National Forest, Sipsey Wilderness, and Dismal Canyon waterfalls are nearby, as well as a golf course less than an hour away. The Bankhead National Forest provides all kinds of outdoor activities including camping, hunting, horseback riding and ATV riding. Wildlife and bird watching are also very popular, as is hunting the flora and fauna of the area. Due to the large expanse of forest, many rare species are found here that are uncommon or can't be found elsewhere in the country. The Sipsey Wilderness provides over 80 miles of trails to enjoy the scenic beauty of the area. Waterfalls and canyons can be found along the way, along with towering limestone cliffs lining the banks of the Sipsey River.

Just a few miles North is the magnificently Belle Mont Mansion sited on a commanding hilltop, Belle Mont is one of early Alabama’s crowning architectural achievements. It is also one of the outstanding Palladian-style houses in the Deep South. Mystery shrouds the source of the design, but tantalizing clues suggest the direct influence of President and gentleman architect Thomas Jefferson. Rescued from ruin in the 1980s.

For fine hiking to the South is Natural Bridge. This 60-ft.-high, 148-ft.-long sandstone, rock bridge is the longest natural bridge east of the Rockies. It spans scenic natural areas, forests and wilderness. Nature paths, picnic areas and gift shop are available for visitors.

18 miles to the West of Phil Campbell is Dismal Canyon.Through the heart of the canyon flows 'Dismals Branch', a winding stream that enters the canyon with a roar through 'Rainbow Falls'.

A 1.5 mile hiking trail on the canyon floor follows the stream through skyreaching boulders, past thundering waterfalls, into a secret world of mossy-green and pearl gray filled with ferns and giant trees.

BE SURE TO CHECK ONLINE FOR ACTIVE DATES AS SOME OFF SITE ACTIVITIES ARE NOT AVAILABLE IN THE WINTER.
