Peaceful and very nice home!

  • 5 of 5

Host Wayne is very accomodating, and super easy to work with. Home is a nicely furnished and updated larger older house, and has very large rooms, a full kitchen, living room, even a washer/dryer. Large fishing pond, and yard is manicured/landscaped well. Very convenient to I-20, in fact about 300 yards off the exit ramp. Clean linens and private. We'll plan to be back next year!

Owner's Response: Thanks Rod, I'm glad you enjoyed being our guests at Cotton Top Cottage! We think it's a great place for families who want to get away, have family reunions, and visit friends and family who live nearby. It makes us feel good to know that our guests want to come back. In fact we have had several guests who have stayed with us more than once. That tells us we are doing something that delights them! The next time you want to get back to see family, I hope you will stay with us! Wayne

We didn't get to stay at the house a whole lot due to working at the boys ranch, however, it provided just what we needed.

Great home away from home!

Owner's Response: And we enjoyed having you stay with us! We really appreciate families who take such good care of our home and we also love having families come back to see us like so many have done in the past. If you ever want to have a family reunion or just a get-away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities, you know you can come to Cotton Top Cottage for a retreat that's hard to beat. The quiet and space to roam as well as our little 3-acre pond to fish (remember to bring your own fishing gear). Hope we'll see you again the next time you need a great place to stay! Wayne

Owner's Response: Thanks Scott. I know you enjoyed your stay because you told me you did in our earlier communications. Please let me know if there is something we can improve on - we really want our guests to be delighted with their stay - not just satisfied. I also hope the weather was good so you could catch some fish. This time of year we have a lot of "pop-up" showers. Of course the end of June and the first of July this year has been more rainy than usual because of what's going on in the gulf. Hope you will come back to visit with us again real soon! Wayne

Travel the back roads by car to see beautiful nature scenes or take some of those same roads on your bike. If mountain biking is at the top of your list, enjoy the Bump n Grind event at Oak Mountain State Park - and you don't even have to travel the Interstate to get there.

A private fishing pond is available to guests of Cotton Top Cottage. Bring your own gear and enjoy the peace and quiet!

Or if you like a larger body of water to play on, fishing, skiing, and all other water sports make Pell City a place for anyone who loves to spend a day on the lake. Logan Martin provides year-round opportunities to relax in your favorite boat.

Desoto Caves Family Fun Park provides an opportunity to make a day of touring the cave or wall climbing, bumper cars, and other games. Located in Childresburg, Desoto Caves is located less than an hour south of Cotton Top Cottage.
