About Al and Stacey

During a family vacation to Big Bass in early 2005, my husband and I loved the community and decided to buy. So in November 2005 we purchased this lovely 5 bedroom home so it could fit our rather large family we each come from.

Al and Stacey purchased this house in 2005

Why Al and Stacey chose Gouldsboro

The house is within a 1000 feet of the clubhouse if you walk through the woods across from us. The community itself is wonderful and we are looking forward to many years there with our children as they grow up.

Quiet area, nice house, had everything we needed for our large family get away.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived with no issues getting into community and finding house. Once inside house we had a few issues but they where handled very fast by the owners. They were very quick to respond and to take care of our concerns. House had plenty of room for all of us. We would recommend this house for a large family looking for a quiet area to have a vacation.

Large family Base whilst visiting NYC

  • 5 of 5

We all had a lovely stay. The property was large and accommodating for a large family group of seven adults, with ample parking for two cars. Excellent property which fulfilled all of our needs. Great kitchen and dinning facilities, well tooled and left us requiring nothing. We all settled in immediately, a home from home from the outset, which served well for all the traveling we were doing. A lovely recluse from the bustling city which we looked foward to after long days in NYC. BBLCA has lots to offer with the pools and lake both of which we made good use of not to mention the wildlife which were a welcome site and made for some excellent photos.. Thanks again Al & Stacey for sharing your home with us.

Roomy, spacious, nice - gives you the cottage look and feel.

  • 4 of 5

Our family group included 7 adults and 4 kids. We had a really great time. There was more than enough bedrooms and space for everyone. After our activities throughout the day, the pool table kept the adults occupied while the kids were busy running up and down the stairs. The homeowners were relatively quick to answer our questions and they worked with us when we needed to make adjustments to our reservation. The only thing is I think the bathrooms can be a bit more updated pertaining to the showers. but nonetheless we did not incur any issues while at the house.

Nicely located spacious cabin in the woods

  • 4 of 5

My husband's family and I stayed at the cabin for a weekend in January. The cabin is very spacious and has a great location with privacy in the woods. We had 8 adults and 3 children and had plenty of beds and space to relax. We will definitely be back again. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us!
