The rustic farmhouse is about 15 minutes from town and is surrounded by beautiful scenery as far as you can see. If you like animals, this is the place for you! There are horses, goats, dogs, birds, squirrels, and even a pot bellied pig named "Yonkers!" My daughter and granddaughter got to feed the horses and play with the neighbor's dogs. The house is about a ten minute walk down the hill to the lake. My husband built a fire in the fire pit outside and one in the Franklin stove inside and it was a perfect place to celebrate a belated Christmas with my granddaughter. I cooked a huge brunch every morning and a delicious meal in the evening so it really felt like home! The king bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable and we slept good every night except for the first night we were there. When we arrived at the house, it was about 8:00 PM, so it was dark and we couldn't see what was around us outside. During the night, we heard something on the roof and bumping noises underneath the house. We turned on all the outside lights, but we couldn't see anything. We thought someone was trying to break into the house. In the morning, I walked out to look around, and had no idea that the house is built on top of a stable! The noises that we heard below during the night were goats, a horse, and a pot bellied pig. The noises on the roof were squirrels I think. I was so relieved that the noises came from the animals and not an intruder! We didn't have any problems sleeping the rest of the trip. Sunset Bay was definitely the most unique place that I've ever stayed at and I would recommend it for a relaxing getaway.
Great place to take the family on a game weekend. Surrounded by horses and goats and chickens and 20 minutes from Bryant Denny Stadium. Just needs WiFi.
The cabin and the surrounding property is beautiful, and much larger than it looks in the photos. We rented a pontoon boat for the day, and enjoyed the sights of Lake Tuscaloosa. Linda was a great host, and we plan to return soon.
What lovely, delightful stay we had! The setting of this home is incredible. We absolutely loved our time there and only regret not knowing about it these past 4 years we have been going to Tuscaloosa while our son was in school there. We would of stayed here more often! The drive is an easy 20 minute ride from the university. There are plenty of great spaces in this home, all are very clean and comfortable. large bathrooms, lovely fenced yard and all the conveniences of home. We could not of been more pleased with our accommodations and recommend this wonderful place to all. It would be a great game day stay!
This was our second stay and we diverted almost 3 hours from our destination just to spend a few nights at this absolutely lovely haven! Loaded with character, serenity, beauty, and nature - but combines modern conveniences such as a well appointed kitchen, large tv/dvd, soaking tub, and comfortable bedding. Picturesque surroundings, farm animals, and total relaxation. Perfect place to unwind, reconnect, and just a short drive from stores and restaurants. A welcome break from chain hotels and generic lodging. Spotless and terrific service in booking. A+ - Can't wait to return!
This property was beautiful and very peaceful. The cabin was clean and provides everything you will need to make your home away from home. I would recommend this property and will definitely make a return visit.
