Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 21-23)

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The kitchen cabinets, table ,and all walls not originally made of log have been constructed form barn wood from a barn built in West Virginia in the early 1800's that was disassembled and dry stored.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 Guntersville

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.

Wonderful family time around the outdoor fire pit!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful log cabin on Lake Guntersville! Just enough rustic - plenty of modern comfort. We especially enjoyed hot dogs and Smores around the fire pit near the lake shore.

Amazing, unique and FUN vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time at the Two Cabins Lodge. Not only is this is a unique and historic place to stay, but the accommodations are incredibly nice and provide so many modern conveniences. We had three families with multiple children and still had plenty of room to spread out. The kids LOVED the bunk room and fell asleep every night watching a movie on the big screen TV. They also enjoyed having their own little space with a reading lamp. We enjoyed coffee on the gorgeous screened in porch every morning overlooking the lake. The kids spent hours with the two cool kayaks and the canoe, exploring this quiet cove of Guntersville Lake. They also spent some time in the pool as well, and we loved sunning on the nice wide pool deck. Every night we roasted S'mores by the fire and loved the tree stump seats around the fire pit. The large bed swings underneath the screened in porch are a great touch as well. The kids loved the game room in the basement and spent a lot of time playing air hockey, pool, and the Wii. We rented a boat one day and loved having a nice wide dock to keep switching kids in and out of the boat. Guntersville Lake was beautiful and perfect for pontoon rides and tubing! We hated when our stay ended - everything about it was perfect and we can't wait to come back. Thank you for allowing us to use this beautiful home - all of the details and care that went in to the renovation are incredible!

3 Generation Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome time we had at Two Cabins Lodge! So many things to do...kayaking and floating in the lake, fishing off the dock (first time for grands), rocking on the large screened porch, swimming in the pool, playing air hockey and pool, and just hanging out in the big, family kitchen. The cabin is really amazing, everyone agreed that it was the perfect place for our family vacation! Thanks, Karen!!

This cabin was perfect! Our family had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

Two Cabins Lodge specifically and the Lake Guntersville area in general were a perfect spot for our family vacation. Grandparents, parents and grandchildren ranging from 20 to 2 all loved the trip. The Lake was perfect and so many nearby attractions- Cathedral Caverns, Huntsville Rocket Museum, screaming eagle zip lining...something for everyone. Thanks so much!
