About jill cattaneo
My family moved here 19 years ago from California, we wanted a quieter life style, we chose Guntersville for the beauty of the lakes and mountains. i was house hunting with my sister and her husband for a home for them, we found our lake home but in extreme poor condition, too much work for a move in ready home. I instantly fell in love with the location and the yard, i knew the home would be a project, the property looked like a park on the water, so different from the other surrounding lots, so at that point the idea of a vacation rental came to be, cattscradle comes from the first part of our last name and cradle is self explanatory!
jill cattaneo purchased this House in 2004
Why jill cattaneo chose Guntersville
I instantly loved the property location and the park like yard, flat and family friendly, so many of the lake properties have steep slopes and driveways, this lot is flat and very enjoyable for all activities! The location is just a few minutes from our own home, which makes it very easy for me to meet and open the property myself, or for those who would like to stop by before renting to see if the home will work for their stay, I enjoy meeting the visitors, we have been blessed with wonderful renters, many whom have made this an annual vacation spot!!
What makes this House unique
The homes location is central to many enjoyable ammenities, my favorite are the blacktop walking trails along the waters edge,10 minutes away, if that. also the tennis courts at this location, the recreation center with the wonderful lap pool, kids pool, and large swimming pool with curved slides make a nice change from the lake for the kids or toddlers.Guntersville state park is about 15 minutes drive, also super walmart, and other stores..located in the city limits. plus a brand new publix grocery store ,the first of its kind..with a pier you can drive your boat up to, park and shop...

So glad y’all enjoyed your stay at cattscradle... appreciate the nice review:))
The property was easily accessible. No tall hills to walk to access the water. Large family room was enjoyable.
Wonderful extended weekend.
We thoroughly enjoyed Cattscradle. The house was just the right size for our family. The kitchen is big enough for two people to be in at the same time. It was stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glasses, and more. The bedrooms were lovely and well-furnished. We slept very well all three nights. The laundry and bathrooms were a bonus in that they were large sized rooms. Super living room/dining room combination and so much outdoor space. From the pergola area to the dock, to two open patio areas to the screened in porch---all very enjoyable.
Because this is a lakefront property we saw a variety of birds, along with squirrels, and turtles. We also had our share of flying insects, and found it is very important to keep the doors closed as the bugs will come into the house. We treated this home as our own and have wonderful memories for our family.
Thank you for a wonderful compliment.. there’s something for everyone to enjoy there. So glad y’all found the magic of cattscradle.. hope you make it a tradition. Like many others to return:)) Jill
The house was great! Lots of space for family fun! Whether on the dock, in the water or out back playing games in the spacious yard. We all loved it! Thanks Jill.
So glad you enjoyed Cattscradle! Something for everyone! Appreciate the kind review:)) hope to see y’all next season:))
Cozy Clean Homey Well Equipped
We were five over 50 fishermen, so our first question was can we fit three boats at the dock? Electrified dock? Lighted dock? Is the parking lot big enough to handle three boat trailers? The answer to all was yes! As for the rest; it's a comfy house. We lacked nothing we needed to eat in every night; lots of pots and pans...hahaha. We are not the best ones to ask; our needs are few beyond eat, sleep, fish., but it seems to me to be a perfect place for families. Great location, nice little beach area, shopping close by, many books, games, etc., clean, well equipped, solid owner instruction book. Jill is lovely and friendly and available. Can't go wrong here!
So great that you all enjoyed your stay at Cattscradle.. I so appreciate a welcoming and flattery review! It was juice meeting you, I sure hope y’all come back for another adventure and door should be not sticking by then! Lol. Jill. Please keep my card and number for direct future contact!!
