Lakefront Home 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

**APRIL 2017 SPECIAL:$400 nightly or $2500 weekly **

Come create your ultimate vacation in our newly updated luxury home. Heron's Landing is located on beautiful Lake Guntersville, Alabama, home to the renowned Bassmaster Tournament and some of the best fishing in the South. If fishing isn't your passion, enjoy the porch swing on the dock while taking in the surrounding wildlife. Better yet, catch a nap, sip a drink, or read a book in the quiet solitude of the screened porch on the boat dock. Pure paradise!

When taking a break from the beautiful lake, relax by the glistening saltwater pool, sipping a beverage of your choice. If being active is more your style, shoot some hoops, work on your putting skills, play kick ball on the level yard, or push kids on the swings of the outdoor play set.

As the day heats up, there is plenty of space to get out of the sun but still enjoy the ambience of the outdoors. The pool house is equipped with a kitchenette, granite bar, and gas grill to enjoy food and drinks under a covered eating area. The screened porch also allows you to be poolside while cooling in the shade.

Whether the day is just beginning or coming to an end, there is plenty of space for everyone to spread out indoors. With six bedrooms, four full baths and two half baths, two living rooms, and a game room, there is abundant space to meet everyone's needs. The four flat screen televisions, foosball table, and ping pong table provides choices for all ages.

Heron's Landing boasts the colonial charm of yesteryear while providing modern amenities of today. The house is a New England Federal style that was designed after the Deane-Barstow House built in 1807. A fully equipped kitchen with Vermont Soapstone countertops, wide plank pine floors with hand forged nails, and cabinets with an aged farmhouse patina, take guests back to a long forgotten era.

We hope you find rest and relaxation while making memories to last a lifetime!

Well pleased, better than the pictures!

We were well pleased with the well stocked kitchen and the owners upgrades to the bathrooms. Our family of fifteen had plenty of room to spread out and be comfortable. Lots of good shopping in the area We will definitely consider coming again!

Family Vacay

  • 4 of 5

This property was perfect for our large family vacation. There was plenty of room for everyone. The pool area was perfect after a day on the boat. Pool house and screened porch were ideal for enjoying the outdoors. The large living room was plenty large enough for family game night. The house was well stocked with plenty of sheets, towels and kitchen goods.

The kids enjoyed the putting green (which we also used as outdoor dance floor) and the playground. State park is close by for zip lining.

We will definitely put this as a do over trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review and I am so glad that your family enjoyed staying at Heron's Landing. It was good to hear about the inventive way you used the putting green. This idea led me to thinking...what about renting equipment to have an outdoor movie night by the lake...we will definitely be looking into this. I hope you choose to return again and give us the opportunity to earn the fifth star!

Great place for large families!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Heron's Landing and we will definitely be back! We enjoyed cooking in the well-appointed kitchen. There was so much living area for multiple groups. We had the football game on in the family room, a card game at the table in the outside screened area, and girl talk on the outside deck of the master bedroom. We actually had a couple of warm days that the kids were able to swim and otherwise enjoyed the hot tub. The boat house is the favorite for my husband. He was able to keep the boat there with access to the lift, easy charging for the trolling motor, and plenty of great fishing nearby. We also utilized the playground set and basketball court. No one wanted to leave! Look forward to more good memories at this beautiful home!

Great Holiday Vacation at Heron's Landing

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from another holiday vacation at Heron's Landing and had a wonderful time. We had 16 family members from four states ages 2 to 81 and everyone had fun. The home was beautifully decorated for Christmas and had all the amenities our crew needed to stay entertained for the week. Thanks so much and we will be back again!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation we've ever been on. We went at 4 families all with small children ranging from 8 months old to 9 years old. It was perfect for everyone. We had the babies in their walkers in the screened in porch while the older kids played outside in the pool. It's the perfect set up for all ages. The outdoor kitchen/bar was great to hang out at (and the baby monitors even reached there too!!) We debated going to a beach house, but are all sooo happy we chose to come here instead. The lake was so fresh and clean. We didn't the have to deal with salt water and sand!!! The house was super clean. It was also overly stocked with the necessities (linens, pillows, towels, dishes, cookware). The neighbors are super nice and helped us with our broken boat trailer. All in all it was a great experience, and can't wait the come back next year with our growing families. P.S- the pictures online do this house no justice (it's way prettier in person)

We had a great time and would highly recommend to anyone! Thanks again!
