About LakeLands Limited


LakeLands Limited purchased this cabin in 2010

Why LakeLands Limited chose Alabama

Kudzu Development is pleased to partner with LakeLands Limited for rental management. We rent to our visitors staying at Kudzu Cove, and anyone visiting the Scottsboro /Guntersville area.

What makes this cabin unique

Kudzu Cove was aptly named after the kudzu vine that covers an area of trees in the north end of Buck Island near the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) wildlife area. There are also additional cabins as originally conceived with an eye toward catering to groups. For more pictures and a better idea of the location, click the 'Owner's Link...more info/pictures'.

Visitors staying at Kudzu Cove should ask about opportunities to take advantage of the golf course, clubhouse, tennis courts, and pool located at the nearby Gunter's Landing.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at the Fisherman's Retreat cabin last weekend.  It was beautiful and clean and we enjoyed a relaxing weekend.  We went to Guntersville last year and had a very bad experience with our rental.  I told my husband it was going to be much better to write a complimentary email than a complaint one.  You should be very proud of the cabins and the grounds.  Even with the storms it was just beautiful.  I will definitely recommend it to all my friends and we will certainly be coming back again!


Thank you very much for a wonderful weekend.  We wish you the best of luck in this venture and you can definitely count on these happy renters coming back!


Best Wishes,


Sue and Chuck

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at every cabin at Kudzu Cove and don't have one bad thing to say. It's like "home away from home". The owners are some of the nicest and best people you could ever deal with and always ready to help if anything is needed. You are treated more like family than a customer. These cabins can accommodate large groups, have lots to do for families right on the property and a great place to just get away. Also easy boat parking, charging areas, and safe to leave your stuff without worry. Highly recommend if you ever come to the area.

My daughter, Allison, rented one of your cabins for us for Father’s Day and I wanted to follow up on our weekend stay at Fisherman’s Retreat, this past weekend. We were very pleased with our stay! The quiet and isolated location of the cabin allowed us to get away from traffic and phones and to just relax for a couple of days. The cabin was much nicer than we anticipated for a ‘rustic’ retreat. It cabin was an ideal size, it was clean and well kept, and it provided the amenities we needed for a comfortable stay. Your restaurant recommendation was spot on and we enjoyed some of the best catfish we’ve had in a long time. Fishing in the ponds was great and it was a weekend I’ll remember, positively, for a long time. Well done!

Had a wonderful time at Fisherman's Retreat. Very peaceful. Pond was great for watching the beavers. Bird watching was excellent, also. I highly recommend this cabin. Very large and clean. Pictures don't do it justice. Will be back in the Fall. Thanks for everything.
