Guestbook comments from the owner

5 of 5 STARS



This lovely log cottage on the backwaters of the great Tennessee River--Wilson Lake--is a quiet Mecca in the Spring although it began to spring to life with guests and a wedding during the last 2 of our 13 days' stay. Our personal guests included bustling squirrels, regal herons, birds of all types, ducks, turtles, and a copperhead who simply lay at the water's side sunning himself from his winter chill. FISH is now a "four-letter" word for Jeff, for in spite of casting his line every day, he never saw one on his hook. His experience is foreign to others who find this corner of Alabama a fishing haven. Mitzi, Southern-born and bred, has concluded those fish simply didn't like the smell of a Yankee, for within 24 hours of return to Indiana, Jeff cast and pulled a large bass from the retention pond in our backyard.



Rest assured his luck was better enjoying several of the golf courses within a stone's throw of our Sweet Temporary Home in Alabama. Golf is a four-letter word he used a lot with kindness during our stay.



Much of our first week was rainy and a bit chilly, but a blazing fire that died only while we slept was the greatest. The joy of snuggling by the fire, sipping coffee, or spirits, reading, chatting with our Alabama family and friends who dropped by, playing games, and cooking late breakfast could not have been eclipsed.



Shopping and dining within a 20-mile radius from Tuscumbia to Sheffield to Muscle Shoals to Florence would keep any big City visitor engaged from O'guirres Meat Market to Alabama Channin to the Village Shop to the French Basket to the hidden Florence gem Goodman's (a place that recognizes toddler boys need clothes) to Lola's Florist & Gifts and so many more you find good stuff and super Southern hospitality. Dining, oh my! From gourmet Odette fare to the 50+ year rock-solid fine dining at George's Steak Pit to Brooks BarBQ to Trowbridges ice cream shop to Lash's seafood gumbo and Key Lime pie, and so many more, you will never want to go home--even to the fine foods we enjoy in the Indianapolis area.



Minnie's cottage gets an A+ for cleanliness from these clean freaks. It gets the same score for decor, comfortable furniture and beds, and a finely-stocked kitchen. Minnie herself is an A+ proprietor in all regards--especially prompt communication.

Golf Outing In Muscle Shoals.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, roomy cabin that worked well for our golf group. Convenient to everything, yet secluded. We will consider this cabin again in the future.

Quiet cabin in a nice resort

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Cove at Doublehead!! We were in town for a high school fishing tournament and wanted the comforts of home as opposed to a hotel and we were not disappointed. Check in was smooth, the resort is gated and has much to offer. The cabin is tastefully decorated and comfortable.....just what we were looking for!!! We didn't have much luck fishing off the dock but it was fun to try!! The weather was very warm so we appreciated the air conditioned space to spread out and relax at The Cove. There were cobwebs on the front porch and the three season but that's to be expected when you are surrounded by big trees and the hot/muggy weather. We just swept them away and enjoyed sitting on the screened-in three season porch in the evenings when it wasn't so hot and listening to the different insects and frogs make their music!!

If we are back in the area in the future, we would definitely choose to stay here again and would recommend it to anyone headed that way!! Thank you for the use of your wonderful cabin!!!

Better than expected

  • 4 of 5

Everything was nicer than I expected for a log cabin. The office was so helpful and convenient. I was able to order firewood for only ten dollars and the maintenence man delivered to our porch. The views of the water were breathtaking. We stayed in the winter so I can't speak to the fishing or swmiming. The neighbors were friendly and our kids played with them. Very safe and clean. So glad they had a Christmas tree set up.
