About Randy Wellman

We live in Collierville, TN. I work at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and my wife works at Baptist Memorial Hospital. I'm originally from the north but like southern living much better as does my wife, Kelly, who grew up in this area. We recently became empty nesters but loving the new lifestyle change.

Randy Wellman purchased this house in 2011

Why Randy Wellman chose Alabama Mountains

Waterloo is a place that grows on you. We have been going there for over 20 years yet continue to discover more reasons to return. That's why we finally decided to build a vacation house there a few years ago. Not only is it a beautiful area of the country and a fun place for family vacations, but it is a wonderful community where people are friendly, considerate,and helpful. Likewise, it is a place where you can enjoy your privacy in a very tranquil setting, let your hair down, and truly relax. And, of course, if you like the water, then Waterloo is the place to be. In just a few minutes, you can be playing, fishing, or just cruising down the river for miles, with no hassles whatsoever.

What makes this house unique

Exceptional sightseeing both on and off the lake. Bring your own boat or rent one from local marina.

Amazing Home in Beautiful Area

  • 5 of 5

There are no words to adequately describe how beautiful and thoughtfully furnished this home is. Every detail lends itself to your comfort and serenity.

The house is located on Lake Pickwick, near the Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, and within an hour's driving time from the Helen Keller Home and Museum

in Tuscumbia, AL and the only Frank Lloyd Wright house in AL, which is also maintained as a museum. The views are appealing everywhere one drives, and on returning to the house, there are steps leading down to a campfire site, kayaks to rent, complete with life jackets, and a kitchen and dining area that lends itself to cooking and kicking back. Even the books on the shelves are carefully curated to appeal! We would go back in a heartbeat!

Awesome as Always

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property. And we were not disappointed. Beautiful home with everything you could need and great stuff you didn't know you needed. Randy and Kelly are thoughtful and acomodating hosts. The property is well appointed and has great amenities. If you aren't staying here for your Pickwick getaway, you are missing out! Gorgeous house, great deck, view, fire ring, kayaks.... Seriously, stay here!!!

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place for our family vacation. We had 8 adults and 9 kids. The layout of the cabin was great and having two kitchens really helped out when your cooking for that many people. It came equipped with everything you would need to live there. I would highly recommend it for anyone wanting to get away. Beautiful home.

Great property for group outing

  • 5 of 5

I took a group of 20 graduate school students for a weekend leadership retreat and this property was a great spot for us. The three floors made for easy sleeping arrangements and the two kitchens allowed for ample space for our meals. The access to the water allowed us to enjoy the lake without all of us having to pile in the vans and drive to the park. Mr. Wellman was very helpful in making our stay a great one and we hope to return again in the future.
