About Gail Kimrey

I grew up spending weekends at Guntersville Lake and have wonderful memories on the lake with my family fishing, boating, swimming and just hanging out. Wanted my children and family to enjoy the same experiences that I had and for us to make many memories for years to come.

Gail Kimrey purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Gail Kimrey chose Alabama

Deep water(8-9 ft) for swimming and boating was a priority for us as well as being close to the main channel. The house is located close to the water, you feel like you are right by it from the house. You can hear the waves lapping at the sea wall at night, watch herons dip down and catch a fish and see fisherman catch fish after fish right by your dock. It is 45 minutes from our home, so a day trip, weekend trip or all week are all convenient. It is also close to the city of Scottsboro, so that a quick trip to town if you need Walmart or the grocery store doesn't take all day. Easy to find off the highway, but you feel miles away from home.

What makes this cabin unique

From the first time we walked into the cabin, I knew this was the one. We wanted a cabin that everyone could enjoy and not worry messing up but would enable us to sit and relax and enjoy the company of those around us. Everyone comments on how cozy and relaxing it is--they don't want to leave. From the screened in porch, to the stone patio to the large dock, there is a space for everyone to find their spot;.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time and REALLY enjoyed the cabin. Much rest and relaxation - which was just what I (we) needed.

We found some kind of large green/white tree frog - and also ran into a few armadillo's -- I think we saw muskrats - not sure what else it would have been. And we heard coyote across the lake one evening.

The unclaimed baggage center didn't have anything we couldn't live without ! We did go to Cathedral Caverns and the Sauty Cave

So many things to say about this beautiful place. This will be my second time staying here at The KIMREY CABIN! The owner is very nice and very accommodating. You do not need anything when you come except food that you eat. The front screen porch is beautiful at night and day. The sunsets are some of the most beautiful I have seen! We fished from the dock and everyone caught a fish. It's the perfect little getaway that you don't know about! And you almost want to keep it a secret just for you! LOL!

You can watch the kids swim from the house while you prepare food in the kitchen. And it's just convenient all the way around for lake lovers! I'll be back!! Everytime I have been Ms Gail is asking if we need anything? She really has everything you need but a bathing suit! LOVE IT!!!!! Can't wait to go back!!

Great place to stay! Very nice outdoor siting area and access to a private dock with a ladder into the lake. Excellent for relaxing outdoors and swimming/canoeing.

loved it

  • 5 of 5

The owner is great, I was coming from Ohio (8.5 hours), she let me know the day before we could check in early as no one had stayed the night before. I didn't think we would be early, but ended up 2-3 hours early in scottsborro. I texted her to make sure it was still ok, she answered quickly and said go ahead. She is readily available if you need anything, we didn't everything was perfect, a quick text to let her know the cabin looked good, and a text the day of checkout was all it took. I feel if something wasn't right she would of been on it.

The cabin is great, awesome location on the lake, and the feel upon arriving is you have the keys to a friends cabin to use.You can see they take pride in their family cabin, and you feel like a family friend using it, VERY NICE.

Fishing is awesome off the dock, caught lots of bass and you can catch all the bream you want.( some big ones to)Largest gill was 12-13 inches, and largest shell cracker was 11-12". Caught some nice cats also, biggest cat off the dock was a 15 pound blue cat.

I loved lake guntersville, never been there before and the fishery was impressive to me, I will be back next year for sure I am going to take a week instead of 4 days.

One last note you may want to book early if your date is open, we originally had a different day in mind, but it booked.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review and I am so glad you found our cabin to be like a friend's cabin you were using. And we do take pride in making it a place for rest and relaxation as well as a great place to catch fish! Loved the picture you send of the catfish-he was large! Hope you have you back soon and thanks for making the long drive from Ohio.

Just what we needed!!

  • 5 of 5

Though the weather turned and we had a day or so of cool, windy conditions we had a FANTASTIC time here! Great location; feels like miles away from the real world yet convenient to the things you might need and enjoy. So all in all the best of both worlds!! Had occasion to speak with owner and what a nice lady! We will do it again! Oh and a hint....the screen porch is where it's at!!
