A buddy and I were burnt out from work and the hustle and bustle of city life. We decided we needed to get away from civilization so we recruited our girlfriends and headed to Deer's Leap in early May. Although only 15 minutes from downtown Huntsville, most of the time during our stay at the cottage we didn't see another soul. We were just immersed in nature and beauty. Standing atop a mighty hill, Deer's Leap offers unparalleled views of lake Vernon. The cottage itself is so cozy and exactly what we’d hoped for. Large windows allow spectacular views from every room, and the bedrooms have walls that open to allow better viewing of the lake. Deer’s leap is essentially two cottages in one. The queen bed I slept in was very comfortable and the late night hot tubbing put us in a sheer state of relaxation. The hot tub is a major bonus. Although it was too early in the season to swim in the lake, we did venture down the footpath to the dock and spent some time basking in the sun with some drinks. A lovely spot indeed. Deer’s Leap had a great selection of board games and videos to choose from, some of which I haven’t seen in ages. We did venture to Huntsville a few time during our stay, there is a cute main street with shops and restaurants to entertain for an afternoon and evening. I really recommend checking out Lions lookout point.
Deer’s Leap is an amazing cottage- serene, peaceful, and isolated in the best way, with the most picturesque views. The name is also quite appropriate since we spotted numerous deer trotting past the cottage throughout our stay. I can't recommend this cottage enough. In fact, I have already booked a 2nd stay in mid-June. I'm sure I will have an even more glowing review once the lake warms up for swimming.
