A relaxing, getaway place on the lake in the woods
About Gail Kimrey
I grew up spending weekends at Guntersville Lake and have wonderful memories on the lake with my family fishing, boating, swimming and just hanging out. Wanted my children and family to enjoy the same experiences that I had and for us to make many memories for years to come.
Gail Kimrey purchased this Cabin in 2011
Why Gail Kimrey chose Scottsboro
Deep water(8-9 ft) for swimming and boating was a priority for us as well as being close to the main channel. The house is located close to the water, you feel like you are right by it from the house. You can hear the waves lapping at the sea wall at night, watch herons dip down and catch a fish and see fisherman catch fish after fish right by your dock. It is 45 minutes from our home, so a day trip, weekend trip or all week are all convenient. It is also close to the city of Scottsboro, so that a quick trip to town if you need Walmart or the grocery store doesn't take all day. Easy to find off the highway, but you feel miles away from home.
What makes this Cabin unique
From the first time we walked into the cabin, I knew this was the one. We wanted a cabin that everyone could enjoy and not worry messing up but would enable us to sit and relax and enjoy the company of those around us. Everyone comments on how cozy and relaxing it is--they don't want to leave. From the screened in porch, to the stone patio to the large dock, there is a space for everyone to find their spot;.

Nice view, needs some better cleaning and upkeep.
It was a great location. It definitely could have been tidier around the outside of the place. The patio area was not swept with ashes from the fire pit all over the area. And a cigarette butt on the ground next to the house. The mattress was very hard in the master bedroom. The entrance to the house (the door frame) looked rather grungy.
I am glad you appreciated our location at the lake. And yes, I agree we need to tidy up around the grounds more--we have had to replace a lot of rotten deck wood very recently and have not been able to take it all away since we have been so booked up. I'm sorry it was not in better shape when you visited. You mentioned a couple things definitely on my "to do" list for this fall and I apologize they weren't done before you arrived. Thanks again for coming.
The rental process was a stress free experience. The cabin was cozy and comfortable. The cabin had everything you needed and was well organized and very clean. The dock was amazing and we caught some fish. We had a wonderful time.
I am so glad that you enjoyed it and that you caught some fish too!! Thanks so much for coming.
Kimrey cozy cabin
My dad and I enjoyed our stay here very much. We came to fish and brought our boat with us. The boat house and dock with electric was exactly what we needed. Gail was very hospitable and answered our questions immediately. Great experience at the Kimrey cabin.
Enjoyed the view, screened porch and dock. Was perfect for a long weekend with friends.
So glad you enjoyed it.
A little hidden gem in paradise!
Our family of 4 loved our stay and couldn’t believe how cute and cozy this place is! It is exactly what we needed for a short weekend getaway from work stress and city life. We spend many hours sitting on the boat deck, coffee in hand staring at the lake and mountain. We took full advantage of the canoe and thoroughly enjoyed hours paddling on the lake. The house was stocked with general condiments to cook and plenty of towels. The shower water pressure, Wi-Fi and AC was strong! I recommend updating the microwave as it took twice as long to heat food and the stove needs an upgrade too. Besides that we loved our stay, sad to leave and planning to come back soon!
So glad you enjoyed your stay and coincidentally I just bought a new microwave for the property yesterday! thanks for your input.
The perfect weekend!
The cabin is exactly as advertised on VRBO. It is clean and comfortable with gorgeous views of the lake
Thanks for the kind review and glad you enjoyed those views and hopefully you got one of our gorgeous sunsets!
