About Dana Allsup

I grew up in this area as a child. This was my childhood home and I have also raised my daughter here.

Dana Allsup purchased this studio in 2008

Why Dana Allsup chose Alabama Mountains

The pool house was built in 2008 and was used for my daughter, her friends and mine. We used it to have gatherings that centered around the pool. We have many happy memories here and now that my daughter is away at college, it sits empty. I hope whoever stays here will make their own happy memories too.

What makes this studio unique

The poorhouse has privacy that a hotel doesn't provide. You have the ability to cook or make a midnight snack. You can watch the horses in the pasture behind the pool, graze and play. There is parking and a fenced yard for your dog (with prior approval.)

If you do planning on bringing your pet, please be aware that I have a 15 year old baby (dachshund) who your pet will share the yard with. Please, Only Pet Friendly Dogs.

Dana's pool house was perfect for a girl's get away!! We felt free to come and go and the pool was great for relaxing with quiet surroundings. The house was clean, decorated cute, had everything we needed! We will be back on our next trip to Florence!

Great Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the pool house in mid-August and it was terrific. The place was clean, well-kept, and had all the amenities that you'd need for a vacation or short stay. I swam in the pool briefly one morning and it was clean/well kept as well. Dana, the owner, was very friendly and accommodating......couldn't ask for more.
