We Felt At Home in the "BAMA HOUSE"
We recently had the pleasure of spending 1 week at the BAMA House. We were totally and completely satisfied.
The house was stocked with everything we needed but the kitchen and kitchen supplies went above and beyond. You will be told, at time of booking, that it is best to go to the house before stopping at the store for supplies. This is very true. Elaine has stocked the house with a great deal of supplies, including a lot of food. She only asks that you replace what you use, which is very fair and understandable. It was wonderful to not have to rush to the store on the date of arrival.
If you like "Large Water Views", I do not think you could find a spot that better fills this desire. The views from the patio, the house as well as the multiple sitting areas in the yard afford you with some spectacular sights. In addition, even though the house is not large, it provides three bedrooms, a large kitchen / dining area and a cozy great room area.
If you need anything, please feel free to contact your hosts, Tom and Elaine. They, as well as the neighbors, are very nice and will take care of any necessary issues almost immediately.
In summary, if you are thinking of booking this house for a getaway, you will not go wrong. You will enjoy your trip. We will not only recommend this “Yellow House”, we will be back.
We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay at our Bama house. Thank you so much for this wonderful review and we welcome you back any time. It was our pleasure to host you and your wife.
ANOTHER FABULOUS STAY AT BAMA HOUSE !!!!!
This is our second stay at the Bama House and it was once again PERFECT. Best rental on the Tennessee River.
House was spotless and is full of amenities. We used the gas grill to cook steaks and enjoyed cocktails on the boat dock. It was a full moon and it glistened on the water. Beautiful !!!!!
So happy that your second visit was as wonderful as the first. Please keep us in mind for any future visits and we will be sure to order a full moon again for you! There is nothing like it when it leaves a trail on the water that lights up the entire river!
We Love the Lake!
We absolutely loved Bamma House! Every room lakeside was light, and had awesome views of the lake. The beds were comfy and we had everything we needed. We spent most of our time outside on the patio and in the water. The girls played badminton and made jewelry. At night we sat around the fire talking and listening to music. The weather was perfect, with lots of lake breezes. We especially loved Buddy, the dog next door. One day, two labs (black and yellow) came and swam with the girls all morning. They fetched sticks and swam all around the girls, but never touched them. Our stay was so relaxing! We felt blessed to have this sister, cousin, bonding time. Thanks, Elaine & Tom
Great place for families and kids - so happy that your vacation was a joy! Please come back again!
Comfortable, beautifully decorated. Owner was very welcoming, checking to see that we had arrived safely and if we had everything we needed.
Will visit again in future if possible.
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We invite you to come back again soon.
We stayed at the Bama House in June 2017. We all had a great time; it’s very relaxing on the back patio with Great views. Bama House had everything we needed and more. Nice large 3 bedroom house.
Glad you enjoyed your stay..please come back!!
Relaxing week on the water
My husband and I stayed for most of a week at Bama House, and absolutely loved it. The home was totally comfortable and incredibly well-equipped (kitchen, laundry, garage, etc.) for a rental home. We ventured in to Florence one night, but otherwise just cooked at home on the grill and ate dinner on the picnic table on the dock. Plenty of comfy seating both in the shade and out everywhere, so you could always be outside and still comfortable. Pretty glorious!
So happy you loved BamaHouse. Please find some time to come back!!
