If cooking is not your thing we have some award winning restaurants in this area. Take a scenic boat ride downstream for fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere with live music in the Goose Pond area or go upstream on the lake to some of the best BBQ in the south at Mud Creek.

Best known for its big bass, (considered the best Big Bass Lake in the country) Lake Guntersville also offers excellent bream, catfish and crappie fishing. Bream rise to a fly or go after a worm just about any time. Bass also can be caught year-round, lurking under thick grass or shading under docks.

The Lake Guntersville area offers outstanding hunting. There are several waterfowl management areas nearby and Skyline/Martin Wildlife Management Area provides excellent deer and turkey hunting. There are no less than seven management areas within twenty miles of Mockingbird Hill Cabin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first time in this area and our trip has been wonderful!

The cabin is very clean and the boat ramp was less than 200 yds from the cabin.

Owners were really nice and accommodating. Location was minutes from Scottsboro, restaurants and Wal-Mart. We will be back! Thanks for sharing you home.

Awesome little cabin perfect for a weekend stay

  • 4 of 5

The cabin doesn't look like much on the outside, but it is beautifully decorated on the inside and has everything you need. Will definitely be coming back. The only reason I ranked 4 stars instead of 5 is because the queen bed was very hard and uncomfortable. Other than that, everything else was great.

cozy and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Once again we enjoyed our stay at Mockingbird Hill. Our daughter and son in law joined us so that we could all attend my granddaughter's baptism. They were also impressed with the cabin. The weather was nice enough on Monday morning that I could enjoy my coffee on the porch.

Thanks again and we will be back.

Beautiful porch

  • 5 of 5

We would like to thank Joan and Mitch for sharing their cabin with us. We enjoyed a quiet two weeks doing a little local shopping and visiting a few local restaurants. This cabin was the most completely stocked rental we have ever had, so much of what we brought with us ( paper goods, laundry detergent, dishwasher soap, etc) was not needed. All the major appliances are new so everything worked just as it should. The cabin is old but very comfortable and clean inside. If you like to fish and have a boat this place is a great deal.

Loved the place. Owners were superb! Will definitely be going back. The owners are great people!

  • 4 of 5

The home was very nice and exactly as we expected. The owners go above and beyond to make sure your stay is enjoyable. We will be going back. If you're lucky, Mitch will be bbq'ing and bring you a plate. Very good cook. It was nice sitting on the porch in the mornings and evenings without the bugs carrying you off. Only wished I would have brought a hammock. I cannot say enough about the owners, Mitch and Joann, they made us feel like we were family. They know how to treat people well.

Great Trip

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time spending the weekend here. The owners were extremely nice. Mr. Adams even jumped off my car when the battery died and offered to give me a ride if needed. Just super nice people. The cabin is very nice and very well furnished. The dock is large and well maintained with lights and power. My girls caught several brim and a couple of catfish. We really enjoyed ourselves. It is not far to Walmart and other places to shop and eat. Unclaimed baggage is not too far either. If you are looking for a place to stay in Scottsboro give this a look.
