About the property

This home was the 2007 Rocket City Dream Home. Built with resort features in mind, the developer took the Seaside community concept, softened the colors, and added some stone to make this community one of the most unique communities on Lake Guntersville. From the time you arrive, you will be surrounded by luxury. The home will feature the master on the main level, 2 bedrooms with their own bath upstairs, plus a bunk bed room off the upstairs loft/den. Upstairs, above the detached garage, is the Fantasy Suite. This private suite will feature a bedroom, loft, kitchenette and full bath. The home will feature a Dream Kitchen, including a 48" Viking gas range, with 4 eyes, double griddle and double ovens. The owner is the Dream Home Cooking Girl. She has had a local cooking show in Huntsville for over 10 years and has filmed more then 20 shows in this Dream Kitchen. You will have all the cookware you will need. For pool side drinks, you can also enjoy the Margarita Machine. Also in the kitchen is a side-by-side refrigerator/ freezer, ice maker, wine refrigerator, 3 Kurig coffee makers, (KItchen, Master, Fantasy Suite) There is also a full-size refrigerator in the laundry room, and 4 under- counter refrigerators, ( master, kitchen, fantasy suite and outdoor cooking cabana). There is a full size washer and dryer. The home has an intercom system, and will feature an Ipad to control music, some lights, HVAC, and pool. The outdoor grilling area off the kitchen, on the screen porch, features a turbo broiler, commercial grill and a commercial grade 2-eye burner for all your frying needs. The screen porch features a wood-burning fireplace with a gas starter. The porch features EZ-Breeze window system, turning the screen porch into a warm and cozy sun room by simply raising the windows in less then a minute. This home was built with outdoor living space as it's primary goal. The resort pool was designed to make you feel like you were in a lagoon paradise a million miles away. The pool has 10 different waterfalls providing that water sound that is so relaxing. Naps on the swinging bed cabana with the lake wind blowing and the soothing sound of the water flowing is the best way to fully recharge your batteries. The swinging bed is a queen size bed that, in my opinion, is the best bed on the property. The pool also features an elevated hot tub with water cascading over the rock boulders down a lazy river into the main pool. There is a bridge from the main house over the river toward the swinging bed. The pool area will also feature 2 large pool decks, and bench seating all along the retaining walls. On the west side of the pool will feature an outdoor cooking and TV cabana. A perfect place to get out of the sun while tending to a built-in BBQ pit smoker. This smoker is well seasoned and will cook up to 20 pork butts--some of the best you will ever cook. Also, if you're a pizza lover, you may want to cook your own pizza in the true wood-burning pizza oven. The cooking cabana will also features an under-the-counter refrigerator and a large TV for watching The Outdoor Channel or all your sports channels. Both the swinging-bed cabana and the outdoor cooking cabana are timber-beam construction. You don't even have to go inside to take a hot shower. The best place to take a shower is the outdoor shower surrounded by abundant tropical landscaping. You will also find a winding sidewalk leading down to a 2-slip boat house with lots of toys to enjoy, including 2 kayaks, canoe, paddle boat and a sail boat. Love to fish? Lake Guntersville is one of the best fishing lakes in the country.

TV's are available in the Master suite, fantasy suite, outdoor cooking cabana, screen porch and the upstairs loft. The property is landscaped like a resort from the front entry to the waters edge. The home was professionally decorated making your stay feel like the nicest resort home you have ever experienced.

Please note that you must be 25 or older in order to rent our home. We apologize upfront, but we do not allow high school/college students to rent for spring break or any other time.

About Melissa Friday

This was our 10th summer to own our lake house. Mike and I have 2 children (23) and (19), and we have made some awesome memories here with them, our extended family and our friends. We hope that you feel as de-stressed, relaxed and at peace as much as we do when we are here. It's a very special place to us.

The house is lovely and stocked with EVERYTHING you need. Towels, pool toys, cooking equipment, paper products, soap, etc are plentiful. The pool is large and sparkling clean. The lawns are beautifully manicured. The house was spotless and the beds are very comfortable with high-end linens.

The house is electronically controlled (pool, hot tub, music system, thermostat and so forth) and we were a little confused. But Mike and Melissa, the owners, were very attentive and helpful.

We brought our boat and the bass fishing was great.

There is even tubing equipment on the dock!

Grocery shopping is nearby (Piggly Wiggly and Walmart), and Huntsville is about 30 minutes away.

The bathrooms are updated and the master shower is spectacular.

We used both the pizza oven and the smoker (outside cabana), and hardwood was provided. Amazing!

We really enjoyed the flat-top Viking griddle for big breakfasts, and the commercial ice maker was very handy.

I HATE writing a review this good because the house won’t be available when we want it next time. 😩

Book it, you won’t be sorry. The person who wrote the one-star review was ........kooky.

Thanks to Mike and Melissa for the best family vacation EVER!

This was the best lake house we have ever stayed in for our annual family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Each year my wife and I try to find a place to take our three children, their spouses or significant others plus now 3 grandchildren. This year was by far the best location and accommodations. The home and grounds are perfect. The owners were proactive with any minor issue the home had. Eight adults and three grandchildren had plenty of room. If you like to BBQ or cook inside, this is the best. We ate all of our meals at the house. We rented a boat and used the docks along with the Kayak provided. Floating in the lake off of the dock was also perfect. The pool and hot tub(with no heat needed as it is summer) were perfect for all of us. The end of the pool where the hot tub spills over is perfect for toddlers just learning to swim. Thank you Mike and Melissa for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. This home is as nice as it looks in the pictures!

Unbelievable property with something for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

In 2017 at Disneyworld, my family of 6 adults and 3 kids decided a lake house vacation would be our goal for 2018. I looked everywhere for a great spot and found this house on Lake Guntersville. The pool turned out to be the main family attraction, but fishing off the dock also ranked high (grandkids of 7, 9, and 11 all caught fish - grandpa caught a couple 2-3 pound bass in the early morning). Close by boat rental has pontoon boats we rented for 2 days and jet skis we rented for 1 day (10 min away by boat - you can see the marina from the house). Outdoor kitchen is great (meant to try the wood-fired pizza oven but didn’t). Ok...back to why I started with Disney (arguably the competition). Grandkids review of the Lake Guntersville lake house was: “best vacation ever!” I am sure we will come back someday.

Family getaway

This house is beautiful with so many extras. The pool/ backyard area was very fun with the kids and so relaxing also. The swinging bed and the hammock were perfect for an afternoon nap. Hope to be able to return in the future.
