Huntsville house description

This pristine, very private 3-bedroom, 2-bath ranch home sits on the most spectacular 'big water' view of Lake Wheeler, minutes from Florence and Athens Alabama. Surrounded by an acre of land in a rural setting, each room is decorated in Caribbean Casual, painted in bright calypso colors sure to make you feel like you are in your own private island resort.

This home boasts cathedral ceilings with large windows offering a continuous and uninterrupted view of Lake Wheeler. This home has a completely renovated kitchen, with new appliances, cabinets and countertops. The master bedroom and guest room feature French Doors that open onto the large patio where you can enjoy your morning coffee or an afternoon chat while rocking in a good old fashioned rocking chair. All bedrooms face Lake Wheeler, which is one of the premiere fishing lakes in the United States and host to many national fishing tournaments. Fish off the dock, relax with your favorite cold beverage on the large deck of the boat house, or just float on the water. Pontoon boat rentals are available at nearby Joe Wheeler Marina. The Robert Trent Jones golf trail is also just minutes away for you golfers. Shopping and restaurants are 20 minutes away in either Historic Florence or in Athens. If you are looking for a cosmopolitan environment surrounded by gourmet boutiques and fine dining, this is not the place for you. However, if you are craving a 'got-to-get-away' peaceful, private safe and beautiful place to recharge your spirit, then this is your spot. Whether you want a romantic getaway, or to reconnect with loved ones or friends, come relax in the serene beauty of this home. Take advantage of sitting in a rocking chair by the fire pit with your cold beverage

Talladega Race Fans: 'Bama House is located a little over two hours away from the track. Relish in both the race and the relaxation of the lake simultaneously! Go to the races, then come back and relax!

Nashville, for you country music lovers, and Birmingham are both a short 2 hour drive. Alabama football is 2 1/2 hours away in Tuscaloosa! ROLL TIDE. Huntsville International Airport, serviced by American, Delta and United, is 45 minutes away. Nashiville International Airport and Birmingham International Airport are each 2 hours away.

Huntsville, rated among the number one best cities in the United States, is 45 minutes away. Visit the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, Space Camp and/or Aviation Challenge. Parents of campers will find this the perfect place to stay while your child is at camp-close but far enough away! After camp, bring your family back to 'Bama House to play for another week.

Minimum 2 night stay. One week rental is 7 days (6 nights), typically Sat-Sat (negotiable). Check in time is 3 PM. Check out time is 11 AM.
