About Joseph Parkes

My wife was born and raised in Alabama and grew up enjoying this amazing lake! We wanted to share the lake house experience with guests!

Joseph Parkes purchased this house in 2017

Why Joseph Parkes chose Stemley

Why not?! It can accommodate 20 on the main floor and 10 more on the upper level with private lake access, dock and boat ramp. Not to mention the yard to the lake is a gentle slope and not hundreds of stairs!

What makes this house unique

The size makes this property a gem! Fit everyone under one roof! The climate controlled, enclosed sun room has space for 30+ to enjoy games, meals, and relaxation.

The shaded yard with a slight slope makes it easy to enjoy indoors and outdoors! No stairs!

Beautiful stay on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We love staying here every year! The view of the sunset is beautiful across the lake and the house itself is welcoming. A few things could stand to be fixed. Water pressure in some of the showers is to low, Also one of the beds was old and needed to be replaced.

Great memories. Awesome place!

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the stay and had a blast with our group. Some things were not available but we were able to pick them up at the local Walmart. Students enjoyed it all and were blown away with this place. Brought back great memories as we had been here before. Thank you for opening your home to us!

Awesome place for family and friends to gather

  • 5 of 5

We family celebrated my Fathers 65th Birthday with a weekend of fishing and lounging by the lake. The young adults really enjoyed hanging out at the fire pit and talking. We made a lot of good memories here.

Great house, plenty of space, right on the lake.

  • 4 of 5

Only thing that needs to be checked is the AC upstairs didn’t work well, but plenty of room. The lower level was great for our get together.

Owner's Response: Hi Michael, We're so glad that you enjoyed the space and your group had a wonderful event. We hope you'll return! Thanks for letting us know about the upstairs air conditioner. As soon as we found out, we had a repairman out and got it fixed immediately. Sincerely, The Parkes
