(Make sure to check out our website for more details...we can accommodate smaller groups as well. Link below.)

We happily share our new log home with you as you build your own treasured memories. This home is already jam-packed with love and joy and ready for more! Mark and I and our four children, aged 7-13 have worked many long months to bring this home into reality. We strive to remember every detail that makes a house a home for busy families or groups to enjoy. When you walk through the door, we hope to make you smile as your heart skips a beat.

Beautifully situated on the bluff overlooking over 500 feet of river front, your private playground quickly brings you back to nature. Your adventure begins as you drive down the 1000 foot meandering lane on the 6 wooded acres on the Little River atop Lookout Mountain. Suddenly your cares wash away.

Constructed of full 6 x 12 logs, this home exudes a rustic calm with all the modern conveniences. Designed to accommodate large families/groups needing to reconnect, laugh and relax.

Two canoes available for your use too! (see video)

Heads up: The river in the summer (July and August) is at it's lowest. It can be hard to navigate especially in August. There are high and low spots throughout though, so our kids have always had a fun time exploring and cruising to the swimming holes!

Make sure to check out our website for more pictures, videos and info.

Perfect for a large group of friends

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cabin for a group of our friends over our wedding weekend. Everyone said it was perfect! The large living/kitchen area was just right for a post wedding hangout, and there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and sleep that night.

Very sweet for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a very sweet place for family vacation. We had a enjoyable long weekend. The big balcony is my favorite because you can eat your BBQ there. The decorations are warm and cool. Again, strongly recommend for family party.

Great Big Cabin in the Woods perfect for families with kids!

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival, the cabin looked clean and very spacious. We brought 10 kids with us from our church for a weekend retreat before going back to school. The cabin had some board games, dvd's, books, and lots of hiding places for hide and go seek! The kids had fun playing inside as well as exploring outside in the backyard and walking down to the river. The river was very low unfortunately, so the kids were disappointed that they did not get to ride in the canoes, which was a big part of why we chose this cabin. Had we known that the river was more like a puddle, we might not have chosen this cabin. The water was so low that you could not even float in the canoes, as we tried. So be sure to check if the river is flowing ahead of time. Regardless, it was a great cabin with lots of space, especially we loved the screened in back porch and hung out there every night. The decorations are nice. There is a grill but there wasn't any propane gas, so be sure to ask ahead of time if there is gas or if you have to provide your own. We bought lots of burgers and hot dogs to grill and did not get to grill them because there wasn't gas and we didn't have time to drive back in town to find a place with propane gas, so we just used the stove. It was nice to have access to some food items like seasonings, sugar, coffee, ketchup, etc. So we returned the courtesy by leaving behind some packs of marshmallows and graham crackers, other condiments, etc. We really enjoyed it during our stay August 11-14 2016! P.S. The king beds were SO COMFORTABLE!!!!!! Better than a Marriott hotel bed!!! The mattresses were so comfy and cozy! You will sleep well!!!

Owner's Response: I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry to hear the river was so low. As I mentioned prior to your booking, the river is at its lowest in August, with a suggestion to rent canoes at DeSoto. Depending on the year, sometimes we can canoe in August from our shore, but usually we have to float them a bit. Sounds like this year was a dry one. As for the gas grill...we also have a grill downstairs that you were more than welcome to swap tanks with, had I known. As mentioned in our Welcome document, we can't guarantee that the tanks will be filled upon your arrival. My apologies for these issues during your stay. Happy you made it home safely and thank you for choosing Little River Harmony!

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway for our ladies' retreat!! The beautiful cabin slept everyone comfortably and there was plenty of open space for our whole group to sit. Everyone's favorite spot was the screened in back porch!!!! We "rocked" into the night. We will definitely make this our annual retreat spot.

Lovely Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was a wonderful place for my small group's retreat. The layout was well thought through and made it to where people (the 13 of us) were rarely in each other's way. The short drive from Birmingham was also ideal for what we were looking for and the sitting areas allowed for us to gather together, but also roomy enough that we could have our own space. We all had a great time!

Super nice home! Beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house was comfortable and provided everything we needed. Owners were great to work with and all went smoothly. If you are going to be in the northeastern Alabama area, you need to give this house a look.
