We really enjoyed our stay here during the Alabama vs Arkansas game. Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay for a football game, fishing trip or just a family outing. Great owners too!

Graduation Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed staying at the lakehouse for our daughter's graduation. The setting is gorgeous and there is plenty of space for a family gathering. Everyone was disappointed that I hadn't booked a longer stay! We plan to return for a longer visit in the future.

couldn't have been more perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Rice family lakehouse was the perfect place to stay for our team of 7 colleagues traveling together on a work and volunteer trip. The Rices were responsive and helpful in every way, and their efforts made our first visit to Tuscaloosa an absolute blast

First, Laura was fantastic to work with. Great communications and did everything she said she would do. As for the house, we couldn't have asked for anything better. A beautiful setting right on the lake. Very peaceful and convenient to Tuscaloosa. I would highly recommend staying there. We had all of the amenities to cook, grill and even enjoy a camp fire. Top notch!

Celebrated my son's Graduation from UA in this wonderful Lake House

  • 5 of 5

This lake house is beautifully situated on Lake Tuscaloosa. The accommodations are similar to vacationing at a favorite family home,... familiar, comfortable and relaxing! Due to the circumstances of our stay, the guests were multi-generational. There was something for everyone, sitting on the front porch reminiscing overlooking the lake, fishing off the pier or swimming in the lake. But EVERYONE enjoyed sitting around the fire at night singing and playing guitar. The owner was incredibly gracious, accommodating and helpful during our stay. The home was immaculate and inviting as accurately portrayed in the description and pictures. Renting the lake house made our celebration even more special. I highly recommend the lake house for your next vacation or special occasion. Roll Tide!

Beautiful Setting!

We were just fortunate to get to spend 5 days in this wonderful house on this beautiful lake! The house was as described. Lights were on and very welcoming and the home was clean and very comfortable. The owner made every effort to accomodate us. Will definitely try to stay here again.
