About Sam Greenwood

Greenwood Lake Houses The family run vacation rentals

are taken care of by myself and Angel with son Daniel and daughters Melissa and Brooke

Sam Greenwood purchased this estate in 1994

Why Sam Greenwood chose Alabama

This property was our family home while the children were growing up now as they all are off to school it is way to big and is such a wonderful property that we built a second Greenwood lake House and our goal is to make this a place your family and children will always remember the week they stayed in the Greenwood Lake House

Comfortable place to relax. Beautiful lake.

  • 5 of 5

My brother and our three sisters, along with husbands and wives, meet annually at some venue, usually a different one each year, to visit with and enjoy each other. This year we chose to meet in Guntersville, AL and arranged to stay at the Greenwood Lake House. Sam, the home owner, met us at the house on our arrival and made sure everything was in order and to explain any questions we had relative to the operation of the house. Sam also made sure that he was available to us through out the visit in the event we had a problem or question. Our stay was very pleasant. The house was comfortable and provided plenty of space for privacy as well as ample space for our get togethers as a group. The house was well stocked and everything we needed for an enjoyable stay was provided. For those staying at the there and desiring a boat, Sam has both a fishing boat and a pontoon boat available on the property to rent which is really convenient. We did not fish but as a group did enjoy the pontoon boat. Our entire group agree that if we should stay again in Guntersville, we would come back to this house. Thanks Sam for everything and a pleasant and enjoyable visit to your house and town.

Perfect Couples Get Away

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house last minute for a quick get away for me and my old roommates to meet for an end of summer get together. It was perfect there were 5 couples and we had no shortage on room. The house was plenty big enough for all of us and the one of us that has a baby we chose for them to get the outside king bedroom it is accessible from outside only its like your cut off from everybody if that's what you wanted. It has a full bathroom and a mini kitchen.

Sam was a pleasure to work with I contacted him one week before the date I wanted and he had a last minute cancellation we took it and I am grateful we did we will definitely be returning next summer on a more planned vacation.

You could ask for nothing more than this house has to offer and we get there only to find Sam has a pontoon boat available for us to rent either daily or weekly. It was just what we needed the lake is beautiful and fishing is great for the men anyway.

We will return many times and recommend it to anyone who likes fun, sun,water and is looking for an alternative to the ocean.

Great for a group

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a group of about 10 people, and it was perfect for a celebration weekend. The house was very clean, and the view of the lake was great. Would stay here again!

A Relaxing Enjoyable Week of Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time at the Greenwood Lake House with family. The house is large, easily accommodated the 8 of us, and is close to stores, restaurants, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed the deck areas and grilled out several evenings while there. The pool was a big hit, with a lot of time spent swimming or sitting around the pool. The house is beautiful but does need a few repairs and a little better cleaning. All in all, it was a wonderful week, and Sam and Angel were very obliging and only a phone call away if we needed anything. I would definitely return for another stay.

Good Set-Up

  • 3 of 5

We rented this house for a week. Families came in from Iowa and Virginia It was easy to get to and located next to a lot of stores, restaurants, a boat ramp and other amenities. We had no idea how large Guntersville was.

The house is large, lots of out-door areas (large deck and covered deck) plus the pool and the yard is large. The landscaping, although overgrown in some areas, is very pretty and the view is gorgeous. The water-front area is not swimmable, its full of grass, so probably good for fishing...?

The house includes a paddle boat, canoe and the option to rent a pontoon onsite, which is super convenient. We rented the pontoon for the week, it ran well and fit 10 people very comfortably. FYI, late July is not a good time to fish the lake.

The pool has an outdoor bath. It also has an outdoor shower, but that was broken. There was plenty of furniture and the pool was a good size.

As far as the house, if you have a big group, this house is for you. Lots of bathrooms, bedrooms, laundry room on the main level and living spaces. There are also lots of TVs, an ice machine, cable and a speaker system throughout the house. The down side, the house is really beat-up. There were lights out, broken cabinets, lots of outlets that didn't work, the deck boards had nails coming up and the deck is in need of repair (wear shoes outside). At the price we paid, these things seem unacceptable :(

All that said, the owner did come and fix a few of the broken lights and was available throughout the week with questions. He seems like a nice guy. My suggestion to him would be to take a week and fix some of these things, some of them are safety hazards.

Overall we enjoyed our stay. It's a beautiful lake!
