Welcome to Two Cabins Lodge, located on beautiful Lake Guntersville, in Guntersville, Alabama. Two Cabins Lodge is two pre-civil war log cabins that have been joined together and completely renovated. Made of almost 200 year old square cut logs, some over two (2) feet in width. There is a signature on one wall of the kitchen that presumably belonged to the original builder of the home and is dated August 4, 1859.

From the hardwood floors throughout the upper two levels, to the antique lumber on the ceilings; Two Cabins Lodge has been lovingly and carefully restored, with history preserved and all the modern conveniences added. Two Cabins Lodge has four bedrooms, five baths, and a two-story family room, eat-in kitchen with honed granite countertops, and large bonus room in the basement. Two Cabins Lodge was made for families, with sleeping room for 21 there is even a kid’s sleeping loft featuring built-in bunks for eight (8), with a large play area and TV.

The kitchen cabinets, table ,and all walls not originally made of log have been constructed form barn wood from a barn built in West Virginia in the early 1800's that was disassembled and dry stored. The floors are all made of reclaimed antique lumber, a combination of heart pine and poplar; they have been restored to their original luster. The impressive stair treads are made of solid three-inch thick planks of antique hickory and poplar. Many antique pieces of furniture have been combined with new pieces to make Two Cabins Lodge a wonderfully comfortable get away.

It is our hope that as you enjoy the revival of these awesome pieces of history, you will take time to revive and rejuvenate yourself. We hope that you will consider making this incredible home on the banks of the Tennessee's, Lake Guntersville, your next vacation spot. ****We have High Speed Wireless Internet connection!!!!! •••Brand new 60' Flat Screen HD Smart TV in Family Room, HD Digital Cable including SPORTS PACKAGE!!

About Karen Tillery

I am a stay at home mom who dabbles in building and renovation. We found this cabin in dilapidated shape and had a great time fixing it up and adding on to it to make this vacation home.

Karen Tillery purchased this house in 2004

Why Karen Tillery chose Alabama

It is convenient to our home.

What makes this house unique

We love the peaceful quiet and feeling like we are million miles away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks to you and your wonderful cabins, the Baker family (15) reunited under

the colorful leaves of fall, beside the still quiet lake and inside these warm

nostalgic walls. We take away our fond memories of Thanksgiving dinner

around your table, the cheer around a roaring bonfire on a cool brisk night and

the sound of wind rustling through the trees. Thank you for opening your doors

to us! May this be a welcoming place for many, many more.

WOW! What a beautiful cabin!

I felt like I was a part of history and longed for the

slow paced life of times gone by. The owner did an

excellent job of blending the new with the old. I can

not wait to go back for another visit. I highly

recommend the Two Cabins Lodge.

Beautiful and unique property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a "friends" reunion at this cabin and couldn't have had a better time. The cabin is laid out perfectly with plenty of space for people to spread out. The screened in porch was a favorite gathering place and it was really nice having the (salt water!) pool as an option. The cabin is beautifully decorated and we enjoyed seeing all of the before and after pictures. The owner (Karen) is super responsive and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks so much for a trip full of great memories!!

We just spent a fabulous weekend at Two Cabins Lodge celebrating our father's 80th birthday. Four families with children ranging in age from 8 months to 17. PLENTY of room and activities for all - we needed more time to enjoy it all! The location is quiet, but close to shopping for forgotten groceries. The house was stocked with anything that you could possibly need. Karen has thought of everything and very thorough in her preparations for a perfect vacation. All of this in a historic and beautifully restored log cabin! I highly recommend Karen and her home!

A Fantastice Historic Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family has just returned to our homes in northern Virginia, west Texas and east Texas from a vacation at Two Cabins Lodge. This property was more than what we had hoped to expect. The accommodations were family friendly and spacious with plenty of amenities to make our stay very comfortable. The rustic atmosphere sparked a desire in us to want to know more about the details inside the cabin. There was plenty to do in the area and being on the lake with a swimming pool also made our stay enjoyable for all ages (1yr.old - 62yrs old). We visited the Cathedral Caverns and a near by natural bridge that was amazing! We would recommend this rental to anyone, but be willing to climb stairs inside and out.

The cabin was beautiful and equipped well. We had a wonderful time with the family, fishing, swimming in the pool, grilling/cooking, horse shoe game, roasting marshmallows and just hanging out on the screen in porch and the lower deck. We were greeting by some very nice people that were taking care of some issues with the TV's that was reported from previous guest.. although some of the TV's still did not work, we still had plenty of activities to keep us entertained. Loved the cabin and the history that followed this cabin. The top floor could use a little more cooling as the bedroom just over the side of the living room was very warm. Was a wonderful cabin and time with family. Hopefully we can get more family together and make another visit. Thanks.
