Cute little house for a great price!

  • 5 of 5

My husband loves to fish and we have been coming to Scottsboro for many years now! I am so glad we found this rental home! It is a very cute house in a nice little neighborhood! Very convenient to nearby shopping and restaurants! It's also very reasonably priced! You get a whole house for cheaper than a motel room! Thank you guys for sharing your home with us!

Great little house 🏡

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a very nice location. We were visiting for a horseshow in Rainsville and this house worked great for our group. There were enough beds for all of us. Kitchen had all the things we needed. Beds were comfortable. Wifi, cable. Safe area. Went to the local recreation center (was in walking distance) and went swimming. The park was close and kids were able to walk there and play. Quiet neighborhood, police station around the corner. Peggy was great from the moment we booked the home - open communication and even called to check on us during the stay. We will definitely keep this home in mind for our future visits to the Scottsboro/Rainsville area.
