                            Our family stayed in the Bama House a couple of days after Christmas(on my Birthday). We all had a very great time! It was very bright, clean and comfortable. It rained the whole day, and we still had a blast playing card games, eating , and watching movies. Overall, I would definitely recommend the Bama House for anyone big or small.

                            We rented Bama House for Thanksgiving weekend. It was a perfect central location to gather our family as they traveled from Louisanna and Ohio. The house is very "put your feet Up and relax" comfortable! WE had five adults and four children with plenty of room for all. And even though the weather was cold...hiking around the lake and sitting by the outside fire was lovely. The owners are very easy to work with and made sure we had everything we needed for our get together. And what a beautiful location. ...quiet and relaxing. We even cooked our Thanksgiving meal in the kitchen with all the conveniences of home. Would love to visit again in warm weather with a boat and fishing pole!

                            Owner response: Thank you so much for the kind words. We look forward to being your hosts again soon!

                            We had four generations represented: from 17 mths to 94 years of age. There was something for everyone- board games, fishing, yard games, bbq, cards, reading and enjoying the many historical sites offered in Tuscumbia and Florence. The house lacked for nothing - from can opener to tissues - very well appointed. Our family had a great experience and the young children cried when they had to leave - even asking if we could come back. Definately a family's paradise away from home. After telling my boss about the home, he wants the VRBO# for his family's planned get away (from Florida).

                            Happy Place can't even describe how I felt here. We did this very close to home(35 min) trip for my mother's 85th birthday. She loved it, we all loved it. It is hard to describe driving through a country setting, walking in and feeling like you are at a beach condo. Ultimate relaxation, ultimate view and exceptionally nice neighbors and pups! We will be back! Thank you! Pam

                            Staying at Bama House has now hindered all of my future vacations, in the best way imaginable of course. Staying true to the term "get-away', Bama House gives the feel of relaxation instantaneously. No prior vacations have compared, or even come close, to the serenity and total bliss felt in this home. With a house fully stocked for a family to start their vacation upon arrival, it had all the elements of a typical vacation home sans the unwanted and stressful settling in and shopping. Cleaner than one could ever imagine, Bama House was perfect from our first step in all the way until our last, and heavy-hearted, step out. The owners were wonderful people and their love for the home was evident in every detail. Bama House has clearly made a name for itself in my eyes and I look forward to going again as soon as possible. Bama House is a house that hugs you as soon as you walk in and holds your heart tight for years to come.

                            The lake house is fantastic! Even though I grew up in the area, I had no idea of the beautiful setting just five minutes away from the highway. The panoramic view of Wheeler Lake added immensely to the tranquility of our visit. The house is lovely and we could not have asked for a better place to relax and visit with family. We look forward to the next opportunity! PS. As an Auburn fan, I was hesitant about renting "Bama" house, but was happy to see the sign on the front door painted in orange with blue trim. Something for everyone!

Owners are amazing and so helpful! Neighbors are extremely kind! Would recommend everyone stay at Bama House! :) My fiancé and I stayed a month and plan to stay again if back in the area!

                            Our stay at the Bama House was excellent. The house is fully furnished with everything needed for a great stay at the lake. We felt like we were certainly at home. The owners were very cordial and helpful prior to our arrival, and the house is absolutely perfect. My wife and I and our three teenage daughters enjoyed every moment. We spent a couple of days on the lake and a couple of days shopping. Our nights were spent relaxing and inhaling the lake breeze. We will make plans to stay again.

                            We really enjoyed our leisurlely stay. Plenty of supplies abound in every way. First Aid ointment for a cut to plenty of towels and shared shampoos! Our two young children delighted in useing the toys and drawing supplies as well as the HUGE number of videos to enjoy at night. It was a nice place to wait while our sons enjoyed Space Camp.
