This spectaucular, very private and spacious 6 Bedroom, 4 Full Bath lake home is located on dead end street and sits on the most spectacular 'big water' view of Lake Wheeler, minutes from Florence and Athens Alabama. This home is big enough to have 3 separate families stay, as the home has 4 levels. You feel like you are in your own private island resort.
This home features large windows throughout the home offering a continuous and uninterrupted view of the Lake. This home has a spacious kitchen, with appliances, cabinets and countertops. There is an amazing large deck and lower level patio overlooking the lake where you can enjoy your morning coffee, an afternoon chat or the beautiful sunsets. Covered boathouse with 2 boat lifts and jet ski lift. The Lake is one of the premiere fishing lakes in the United States and host to many national fishing tournaments. Fish off the dock, relax with your favorite cold beverage on the large deck of the boat house, or just float on the water. Pontoon boat rentals are available at nearby Joe Wheeler Marina. The Robert Trent Jones golf trail is also just minutes away for you golfers. Shopping and restaurants are 20 minutes away in either Historic Florence or in Athens. If you are looking for a cosmopolitan environment surrounded by gourmet boutiques and fine dining, this is not the place for you. However, if you are craving a 'got-to-get-away' peaceful, private, safe and beautiful place to recharge, then this is your spot. Whether you want a romantic getaway, or to reconnect with loved ones or friends, come relax at this amazing lake house.
Talladega Race Fans: Our lake house is located a little over two hours away from the track.
Nashville, for you country music lovers, and Birmingham are both a short 2 hour drive. Alabama football is 2 1/2 hours away in Tuscaloosa. Huntsville International Airport, serviced by American and United, is 45 minutes away. Nashville International Airport and Birmingham International Airport are each 2 hours away.
We had 5 couples and two unmarried adult nieces in early August for a time of relaxation in this fine property. We highly recommend it as a place to relax and reconnect. We ate our on the deck overlooking Lake Wheeler. We took advantage of JP Coleman State Park and it's marina and restaurant which are just down the road.
I have rented many vacation homes over the last 15 years and only a few have exceeded my expectations. Well, I can add this home to the list. We had 11 men in our group for our annual reunion golf trip. One of the best things about this house is that everyone had their own space (if needed) and the great room and game room were very spacious and comfortable for everyone to enjoy fellowship together. The decks and balconies have a terrific view of Wheeler Lake. The swim dock and boat house were great. We caught plenty of catfish. (The boat house will probably need a little attention in the near future).
Other than a few small stains on the great room carpet (the owner actually left a note apologizing that the carpet cleaners hadn't come), the house was very clean and the towels and linens were fresh. The kitchen was stocked with everything you needed to prepare any type of meal.
I would like to thank Anne for a very enjoyable stay at "Rivercrest" and look forward to staying there again.
House very dirty and full of clutter! Kitchen was nasty, everything had to be wiped down, refrigerator had leftover food, dirt and spills. Floors had not been mopped, carpets had stains, dirt and bugs and looked as if had not been vacuumed in some time. Ice maker at bar full of mold, laundry room absolutely nasty, pet potty pad left on the floor in the game room upon arrival. Deck becoming rotten with loose handrails and nails sticking out everywhere, causing two separate injuries while there. I notified the owner of all the issues, I also took pictures. The house was much cleaner when we left but we received a nasty note from the owner in our deposit return stating that we left the house a disaster and filthy that she should have kept the deposit. I would not rent from this owner even if it was for free. House, location and lake are perfect, if the house had a little TLC. I'm saddened that the beautiful house is being allowed to rot. VERY DISSATISFIED RENTER.
We recommend this beautiful home to anyone who loves to sit out on the deck/patio with their morning coffee and enjoy the view of the river and hear the sound of the water. My husband caught 10 catfish in a 2 hr period one day and many more the other days. He hung out on the boat dock most of the time. Needless to say he was in heaven.
The house looks just like the pictures...beautiful. With six bedrooms and three levels, three families can stay on their own floors and have privacy. The house is so large no one will bump into each other. Well maintained, clean, everything you need.
In Rogersville, 4mi from house, we recommend: Stanfields Steakhouse, Fiesta Mexican Restaurant. If you want a larger variety of restaurants Florence is 30min drive and we went two of the days to try other restaurants. Straight easy drive. If you love antiques, there is a cute store in Rogersville and also in Florence.
Anne was very accommodating and easy to work with. Thanks, Anne. We will be back!
