Great choice for staying on the lake

My Boat sure liked the boat house

  • 5 of 5

The fishing was fantastic. We caught about 50 bass a day. The furniture is a little short for me but, I spent most of my time fishing anyway.

Older property, not fancy, but very clean and roomy. Had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property. It is not fancy but it was clean and very roomy. We had 11 people and there was plenty of room. The view is wonderful. We enjoyed sitting in the deck late in the evening just looking at the water. We all enjoyed fishing from the dock, especially the kids. We will definitely rent this property again. Thanks John and Martha for letting us rent your property!

Beautiful and plenty room

  • 3 of 5

We had 3 families staying together with 5 kids combined. There was plenty room but it was like 2 separate houses. 2 bed 1 bathroom with the kitchen and living room. 1 room 1 bath and livingroom in the other. Loved that we cold use the boat house and dock. The owner was really great but there was an awful issue with red wasps. 20 or more would fly around the doors and steps. And at random times there would be one in the main house. Its in the middle of guntersville and Scottsboro, so easy travel to town. And great spot on the water. But because of the wasps, we won't use the place again.

Owner's Response: Our part of the lake is great for fishing and one of the reasons is the mayfly insects. We get 4 to 5 hatchlings each year. That is the good. The bad is we also get wasp and spiders. Each time we have guest we check, clean and spray if need. When they were here we had some of the best-warmest weather. Thus the wasp came out of hibernation. They reported catching lots of fish, even from the pier.
