About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

New VRBO listing! This lovely 5 bedroom family home is waterfront at the end of a beautiful slough which opens to one of the largest areas of Lake Tuscaloosa. Bring your water toys and invite your friends and family for a wonderful lake vacation! Smith Marina also rents boats, but you do need to reserve early.

Private boat dock with easy access to the large body of water right at the end of the slough. The slough is also a popular swimming area on the week-ends for the homeowners and guests who live and vacation there.

The huge covered party deck overlooks the serene views and invites lingering over dinner with the outdoor speakers, paddle fans, and chirping crickets. There is a charcoal smoker grill on the lower patio.

Available for football week-ends, too. Great accommodations for you and your friends to gather after enjoying the Bama games or other sporting events. Or plan a family vacation at the lake and just enjoy the easy living!

Main level has 4 bedrooms with queen beds. The walk-out basement has another queen bedroom and bath plus a game room with pool table, game table, and TV area. Game room opens to large yard, covered patio, and lake views through french doors and bedroom windows.

We have a small boat launch on the property for jet skis and small boats, and a nice pier for your own boat. There is also a neighborhood launch nearby for your use.

Wonderful restaurants are also nearby if you get tired of cooking out! Bama parents love to stay when they come to visit their student, and there's room for extended family to come, too!

Sorry, we are not allowing pets at this time---newly redecorated and remodeled. This is our own vacation home which we share with others while we can't be there. Check out the video to tour the home.

About Bonnie

Born and raised in Tuscaloosa, I now live in SoCal, but have lots of family in Tuscaloosa. So this is our personal vacation home, which we love. When we can't be there, we enjoy sharing it with other families who love their family time together, like we do!

Football, graduation, and holiday weekends book up quickly. This is a brand new VRBO listing, but we previously used another booking service, and always had rave reviews.

Bonnie purchased this house in 2007

Why Bonnie chose Metropolitan Alabama

We love how you walk in, look out at the lake, and feel all your stress leave. Everyone says they sleep very well at the Lake House. The covered deck off of the dining room is a popular hang out at night to talk, and enjoy the sounds of the lake. We chose this location because you look down the slough, and there is always activity there with kids in the water, but no fast boats going by.

What makes this house unique

A great open concept floor plan that works well for family get togethers. A very long driveway so everyone can park. Just 15-20 minutes from campus, and great restaurants, and less than 10 minutes from a Winn-Dixie.

Plenty of room to spread out, or be together!

Amazing Stay on Lake Tuscaloosa

  • 5 of 5

We rented Bonnie's amazing home for my son's graduation from University of Alabama. I haven't rented much on VRBO, so I was a little nervous, but the house was awesome! It was just as described and we had tons of room for our kids and my mom and my husbands dad! We took full advantage of being right on Lake Tuscaloosa and rented a pontoon boat at Smiths Marina. I've been visiting my don at school for four years and staying at expensive 3 star hotels for four years, I do wish I had done this from the beginning. We loved it so much, the whole family wants to do a lake house vacation again soon.

Bonnie was super easy to work with and very responsive to my questions. The Lake House was even better than advertised and a short drive in to Tuscaloosa.

I highly recommend this home!.

Car: necessary

Other than Lake Tuscaloosa itself, the University of Alabama is the big attraction. Explore the gorgeous campus, tailgate at a game, or watch the numerous sporting events, concerts, etc..
