The Unique Benefits of this House: I am a very water oriented person. Living right on the water is by far the best therapy one could ever want. I want clients to enjoy all the water activities that go with living on the water. I do all the maintenance and enjoy cooking outside and at anytime I might show up at the rental house with a sampler of things I decided to cook. I am constantly adding amenities and welcome requests from clients to make this house more enjoyable, and there have been some great suggestions that I have followed through with to complete their requests..

Also, If needed I will also do all your grocery shopping prior to your arrival. All I need is a grocery list and a reasonable notice if you would like this included.

Why the Owner Chose Muscle Shoals: The main reason I bought this rental property is because I live next door to the rental house. I have lived in my home for 40 yrs. My rental property is well maintained and I am available for the renters 24/7 if I am needed.

Muscle Shoals Sister Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I returned to Muscle Shoals and this was the perfect spot to spend a week visiting old haunts. Our expectations were exceeded by this well maintained vintage river cabin and extraordinary hospitality. Sometimes it is hard to come home, but this place and the hospitality proved this is not always so. The house had everything we needed (and more) and was close all the great area sites. We relaxed, had fun, and made new friends - the perfect vacation. I highly recommend this house and this host. We hope to return soon.

Coming back every chance we get...

  • 5 of 5

We will be returning to Bob's lake house in a few days and as usual, we CAN'T WAIT! We chose it the first time we came because it looked so peaceful and cozy and we were right. We continue to come because it is so much more than just peaceful and cozy. This will be our 4th stay there and planning many more. My husband's family came with us on one of our trips. There were 7 of us and while it was a little crowded with 7 people and one bathroom, there is NO other place we would rather have been. Since our first trip to Bobs, we have never wanted to stay at any other lake house. We love everything about the house and the amenities, but Bob makes it an extra special place to be. If you only came with your clothes, I'm sure he would have everything else you needed. He takes great pride in making sure you have everything you need, feel welcome and are comfortable. There are many special touches from Bob throughout the house that will make you smile. He is like the neighbor you always wished you could have at home! We consider him a friend now and his house is like a home away from home. (without the stress) I could keep writing, but there really aren't enough words to express how special Bob and his lake house are!

Owner's Response: As a property owner this is what you strive for. Present a nice comfortable place, always make sure the client is happy and be on call for anything, and at the same time let them relax and enjoy their vacation. By following those simple guidelines, reviews like this one are the ultimate reward and I thank you Gayla.

Wonderful no stress week at the lake

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 and rented the cabin from Bob for the week of Thanksgiving. The rental is fabulous and it turned out to be a great no-stress week visiting our family in the tri-cities for the holiday. Cabin is cozy and comfortable with all the amenities. Plenty of seating, especially when the weather allows you to enjoy the screened patio or lakefront outdoor space. We ended up relocating our Thanksgiving feast to the cabin to enjoy the outdoor space since the weather was great. We had 13 people there for Thanksgiving day and it was perfect! The kids enjoyed toasting marshmallows on the outdoor patio with the portable fire pit. The adults enjoyed the screened in porch. Bob provided tons of incidentals that can add up quickly when you travel, such as firewood, charcoal, laundry soap, dish soap, paper towels & napkins, etc. And he was such a gracious host. He made us feel like we could just make ourselves right at home; and we did! The cabin was spotless with plenty of towels, pillows, etc. We will certainly be back! Thanks Bob!

Owner's Response: Vacation rentals require having not only a clean and presentable place but being conscientious of renters wants, needs and expectations. My goal is to have all these in place when a new client opens the door. Having this family was the complete package and reading their review makes me proud and energetic to constantly do upgrades and create a very relaxed vacation atmosphere, and I thank you...

Bob, our high school fishing club totally enjoyed our week stay at your lake house. Everything was perfect. The boys loved the fact they didn't have to be hush hush and could enjoy swimming and tubing and not being BORED by having to stay in a motel. the boys have told their parents how much they enjoyed meeting you and the stories you told them. all of them wanted to stay another week. You are a great host and a really nice guy. you don't get this kind of hospitality at any hotel for sure. we recommend your lake house to all. when Bob says all you need to bring is your clothes and food trust us that's all you need to bring. I am still impressed. Again thank you Bob. God Bless

Christmas time family fun

  • 5 of 5

Bob, we really enjoyed our stay at your cabin on the Tennessee river. We stayed the week of Christmas and had our family Christmas there. There was plenty of room for us to open gifts and play games for our family. The cabin is stocked with everything we needed and lots more. The view is very pretty. We would recommend this cabin to everyone. Thanks for everything. Joe and Ginger Tabor - Gulf Shores Alabama

A Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

One of the best vacations that I have ever had. The house was perfect. Clean, inviting and relaxing. Start your morning on the porch with a cup of coffee sitting in the rocking chair, then down to the pier for boating, fishing or sitting and enjoying the view. Enjoy the evening on the patio grilling or sitting by the fire pit that Bob has ready for you. Enjoy the sunset from the pier, patio or screened porch. This house has it all for everyone of any age to enjoy. All the conveniences of home. One of the best kept secrets of the Shoals. Bob leaves nothing to be desired and he was always helpful with anything we needed. One of the best host you will ever encounter. He gives you all the privacy you want but is there to help make your stay as enjoyable as he can. This was by far better than having to travel for hours to get to the beach or mountains. I will certainly be back several times a year if he will have me.
