Overview

Alabama House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Office, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

If your looking for a well maintained lake house with lots of privacy, comfortable furnishings, breathtaking views and a quiet atmosphere, this is the place for you.

Our vacation home is a beautiful 3 bedroom & 2 bath house on Weiss Lake in NE Alabama. In addition to being our private retreat, we selectively rent the house to vacationers throughout the year. This is not a typical rental property, but rather an exclusive lakeside get-a-way at our personal vacation home. We strive to exceed the expectations of our guests by providing an exceptionally clean, comfortable and well maintained home.

You will find that our house is private, quiet and very relaxing. The house has an open floor plan, so it is very spacious with great views of the lake and gardens. The house is well equipped with most everything you will need during your stay. Inquire about renting our jon boat or paddle boards.

The house is located on a quiet street at the base of Lookout Mountain where the Little River opens up to the main body of Lake Weiss. At full-pool, the lake depth is 7 feet at our dock. It is gorgeous here and we bet you will love it as much as we do. Come to fish, water ski, swim, climb, hike or simply escape for a relaxing vacation in any season. Take in the views from our back porch swing or our pedal-pusher swing by the lake. We also have two sundecks to enjoy and a dock for your boat. Visit our main website (see the link at bottom of this page) to read reviews from past guests, see more pictures of the property and find more detailed information.

We look forward to hosting you at our place for your next vacation. Be sure to plan your visit well in advance as we like to spend time here, too, and want to ensure that your preferred dates are available.

About Michael Swift

I am the lucky owner of this beautify place on Weiss Lake. It's peaceful, gorgeous and the fishing is great. We love to spend time here with our family and also enjoy sharing it with nice folks who come to vacation here. I enjoy being able to swim right off my dock without worrying about boat traffic. It's a great place and I hope you will have a chance to experience it for yourself. I personally manage the renting of our vacation home and look forward to being of assistance to you as you plan your next vacation to Weiss Lake.

Why Michael Swift chose Alabama

We live in Atlanta so Weiss Lake makes for a quick weekend getaway. The north part of the lake where our house is located in stunningly pretty. The Little River runs off Lookout Mountain and opens up to the main body of Weiss Lake where our house is located. The water quality is very good, as is the fishing!

What makes this house unique

Because this is a private residence you are never distracted by noise and activity of other people. The yard is full of flowering plants and trees. If you like Azaleas and Dogwoods you should come for a visit in the spring! The peddal pusher swing by the lake is one of my favorite places to relax. We also have multiple sundecks. Perhaps best of all, the lot is relatively level making it easy to trek back and forth from lake to house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I manintain a list of reviews from ALL past guest. Please inquire about guest reviews when you submit your inquiry. I find it difficult to get guest to go back to VRBO and leave their reviews, but I have a guests comment book at the house where everyone leaves their thoughts and impressions.

A wonderful, relaxing Vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

The house and grounds are clean comfortable and beautifully maintained. We were very comfortable and the lake is beautiful. It's only a 15 minute drive to a grocery store and the kitchen had everything we needed to fix our meals at the house. Definitely a great place to stay and worth every penny!

FANTASTIC STAY !!!!! HIGHLY RECOMEND!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from our stay at this beautiful home. This house is very clean and beautifully decorated. It has plenty of room for a large family. Michael was great to work with from the time of my booking until we returned home. He saw to all our needs. The yard is landscaped with flowers and a walk way to the pier. We spent hours fishing from the pier and I spent several hours in the pedal pusher swing down by the lake. Perfect place to relieve some stress and read a good book. The house is located on a perfect place on the lake and even though we didn't catch many fish we took our boat out and fished around the banks not far from the house. This is a perfect place to spend you vacation. You want regret it. We will definitely be returning hopefully to stay longer. Ladies you will love the kitchen and the back porch has a swing and also there is a sunroom which has windows all around you can sit and see the lake. Thanks Michael for sharing you beautiful home with us.

Awesome and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We caught a variety of fish, my Dad caught a huge crappie right off the end of the dock, I caught a ten pound carp. We caught about a dozen catfish too. Everyone enjoyed the landscaping and blooming flowers. The beds were comfy and we liked having our coffee in the morning on the back porch listening to all the birds. We are planning to come back again.

3rd Returning Trip!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This Was Our Third Trip And As Always A Great Experience. The Place Is Beautiful In The Spring. Prime Location For Fishing. The Dock Is Easily Accessible From The House and Located Just Off The Channel. I Can't Imagine A Better Location For Fishing. The House Is Nice Clean And Fully Furnished. They Have Everything You Need. Just Bring Food And Clothes. This Is Definitely A Trip I Plan On Making For Years To Come.

Beautiful lake house

  • 5 of 5

I wasn't expecting it to be so nice but it was way beyond my expectations! Very comfortable, spacious, georgous! The outside of the house was fantastic! Beautiful doesn't even begin to describe it. My husband spent most of our stay on the dock fishing. He thoroughly enjoyed that experience. We look forward to going back there in the future.

February Fishing!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Weiss Lake. This house was absolutely incredible. Our host was extremely pleasant and strove to make sure every part of our stay was pleasurable. The setting was quiet , relaxed and peaceful.

The neighbors were also helpful with dining recommendations as well as directions . Fishing was a little off as a result of recent flooding but house is located in a prime area of the lake. I strongly recommend you try this house you will not find a better property to rent on the lake.

We are planning a return trip next year. Thanks Michael for sharing your home with our little group!!!
