Great location for not just fishing trips, but many varied tourist attractions and activities ... the National Space & Rocket Center, Robert Jones Golf Trail, dozens of caves from small to dramatic Cathedral Caverns, great lakes in every direction (see maps), Lookout Mountain and mountain scenery, country music landmarks from Muscle Shoals to Ft. Payne (home of Alabama), and only 90 miles from Nashville and the Grand Ole Opry.
GREAT PLACE FOR FISHERMEN, BUSINESS TRAVELERS, FAMILIES IN TOWN FOR WEDDINGS, GOLF OUTINGS OR FAMILY VACATIONS.
We had a very nice stay. The owner was very helpful. We had a small glitch at first but was quickly resolved. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood. Just a nice time there altogether. I would recomend this location highly. Thank you Peggy for a wonderful stay !.
I was pleasantly surprised upon arrival. The home was clean, and convenient to shopping and restaurants. The owner/manager was so helpful and patient with answering any questions we had. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit!
Recently stayed at the Sportsman's Lodging location. Stayed there due to its location near Goose Pond; but its central location to Lake Guntersville made it easy to get around. We stayed for the week, so we were able to drive a few minutes north or south to get to the many access ramps that are nearby. Plenty of places to eat and get fuel. The place is probably a little out dated, but it was clean and comfortable. The shower head in the hallway bathroom needs some attention, but other than that all the amenities of home. Even did a couple loads of laundry. Driveway easily fits one rig, we had two squeezed in, but much easier to park one in the yard. Quiet neighborhood, right next to the police station. Owners were very accommodating; if you needed anything they were quick to appease. Even went out and bought a grill for us. If we have the opportunity to go back next year, we will definitely try to stay here again.
45 minutes from Huntsville and its many attractions including the United States Space and Rocket Center. 5 muntes from the unique and famous Unclaimed Baggage Center shpping complex. Five to ten minutes from North Salty,, South Salty, City Park, County Park, and Goose Pond Waterfront Launch ramps to Guntersville Lake.
