About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bunk Rooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

Imagine sitting on the deck while the grill is going and cooking that perfect t-bone steak! Sounds tempting doesn't it. Well this 3 story, 3600 sq ft lakeside property is packed with amenities including your own porch swing.

If you're an avid boatsman or just a weekend water warrior, our 400 sq. foot covered 2 slip boat house is perfect to dock that bass boat or pontoon boat while you go inside and cool off and play a little pool on our regulation pool table located in the basement. There is also a sitting area around the basement fireplace and wall mounted TV. There is also an entrance to lake from the basement.

Don't be afraid to bring along the entire family because this house has a whopping 5 bedrooms! The Master Suite upstairs has its own bathroom with a whirlpool tub, his and hers sinks, and a full shower. The Master Suite also has a TV, DVD player and a body massaging chair. There are also two separate rooms off the master suite. Each room contains a set of bunk beds - sleeps 4. It also has 3.5 baths so no worries there either.

A spacious living room with a nice rock fireplace on the main floor along with a flat screen TV and DVD player will be the feature of nights at the house. The dining room will easily sit 10 people. The kitchen bar will also sit four. There is also plenty of room for those who choose to eat outside when weather permits. The main floor bedroom has a queen bed and a twin size bed in the corner nook of the room. This bedroom as its own bathroom as well as its own television and DVD player.

The basement bedroom contains two full size beds. It also has a view of the lake. Plenty of room for 4 people.

The full kitchen will also make for a nice add on. A home cooked meal lakeside will be a real treat! Not big into cooking on vacation? Not a problem. This lake house is located just minutes from downtown Guntersville with plenty of fine dining and fast food too!

View from the dock of this beautiful 3 story house with a 2 story deck! The boat house is ready to go and ideal for the little ones to fish from without worrying about them getting too far out of your site!

About Mark Beaver

My previous home in which I completely remodeled . I love this house, yet I truly enjoy sharing it even more. We have met so many nice people and love it when our guests are so surprised of the beauty that surrounds this area of North Alabama . Heck even Dog ( Mr. Duane and Beth Chapman) the Bounty Hunter stayed with us !

Mark Beaver purchased this house in 2000

Why Mark Beaver chose Alabama

Serene, spacious, great location, on the water and very private, well shaded and loved the potential . So I added on plenty of Deck to overlook the water. The property is only 5 minutes to town and 20 minutes to Guntersville State Park!

What makes this house unique

The view off the deck period.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at your home on the lake. The setting was just gorgeous and our grandchildren enjoyed fishing and using the kayaks. We were so lucky that the weather was perfect the three days we were there.

The accommodations worked out well for our family and the kitchen was roomy and easy to work in. We could've used more silverware, but my son brought extra. Also, a mixer would be nice, but maybe not everyone cooks!!

Thanks again and we will certainly rent again some time when we have the opportunity.

Thanks for returning our missing items. Also, we loved the pool table! -Linda & Darryl

Great house with large floorplan

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Blue Marlin house for 4 nights. This is a very nice house! Very large and roomy. There were only 4 adults but this house is set up for large family gatherings. House was undergoing some renovations that I am sure will add to the charm. Main floor deck is a perfect outdoor gathering spot. Outdoor TV was really nice. Ample outside seating with great lake views. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. We had a great time!

Thanks Mark and Tabitha!!

THE BLUE MARLIN was the perfect house for our girls weekend getaway!!! The house was absolutely spotless!! We went out one night and cooked in the other. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook. The views of the lake are amazing and the deck is the perfect spot to hang out and enjoy the view!! We could not have ask for a better place for the perfect weekend!!! Hope to be back soon!!

House was nice enough, lake was gorgeous

  • 3 of 5

Overall the house was fine but it needs some updating. We really enjoyed the deck and fire pit. There was plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable. It would have been nice if the outdoor tv worked so we could watch the Iron Bowl on the deck. Also, there were no life jackets for the kayaks.
