Our third Christmas at Cotton Top cottage

  • 5 of 5

For the past three years we've enjoyed our family Christmas at this lovely cottage. It is comfortable, clean, well equipped, and just perfect for the 26 of us to gather for a meal and good times. Wayne and Karen's attention to details is noteworthy - from the beautiful decorations to the bowl of snacks to the comfortable beds. A delightful stay, as always! I hope we'll be back next year!

Wonderful Weekend

What a great stay we had. Wayne was very accommodating and very courteous. The house was better than I could have imagined and was completely ready for our stay. The basket of snacks and the welcome note was very thoughtful. We will definitely be staying here again!

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

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.
