Guntersville house description

Relax in your own private, waterfront home. The Guntersville Getaway is nestled in a small cove on scenic Lake Guntersville, which has 949 miles of winding shoreline.

There is a lot to do without even leaving the property. Relax on the large patio of this 1600 square foot waterfront home. Watch the sunset and grill out. Swing in the over sized hammock and take a nap. Watch the wildlife, which may include a Bald Eagle, Osprey or the endangered Whooping Crane. Great Blue Herons and Turtles are almost daily visitors. The turtles and ducks like to sun on the log next to the pier on sunny days.

Field and Stream Magazine voted Guntersvillle one of the top 10 fishing towns in the country. It is well know for it's Bass fishing and National tournaments. Guests often catch fish right off the bank or pier. The kids will love catching Blue Gills, Catfish or Bream.


Fun in the Sun for Everyone: The Guntersville Getaway Waterfront home is easy to find, just three tenths of a mile from Highway 431. It is located on Buck Island Shores near Gunter's Landing, across from the Guntersville Yacht Club. It offers a fun and inviting place to bring the whole family or it can be a romantic retreat for two. Children are welcome. We have children's books and DVD's. Create memories with your family that will last a lifetime. We have movies and books for grown ups as well.

Your private pier offers deep water year round. Summer and Spring bring boating, swimming, fishing, skiing, or just sunning. If you have had too much sun, shop till you drop in Guntersville for antiques and bargains. Or zip over to the Factory Outlet Stores in nearby Boaz and Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro.

First Class Golf and Family Attractions: It is centrally located to fiour first class Golf Courses: Gunters Landing, Cherokee Ridge, Robert Trent Jones/Hampton Cove and Goose Pond.

Your whole family can discover Cathedral Caverns, which has the largest cave opening in a public cave in the U.S. It is only 15 minutes away.

Spend a day exploring the Space and Rocket Center and Space Camp, in Huntsville, which attracts visitors from all over the world. Huntsville is less than an hour away.

In the fall and winter curl up next to the fire with a good book from our collection of hard backed books. Take a drive or a boat ride and treat yourselves to the explosion of fall colors.

                                    The property was great. Lyndall was grateful to let me bring my 4 legged friends. We could not get them to get in the SUV when it was time to leave! They loved it!!! The location was great. Right on the lake and far enough from the street the doggies were safe and had a great place to run. We grilled every night and set on the patio. Wonderful. All the bedrooms had sliding doors so you awakened looking at the beautiful lake. Can't image how romantic in the winter with fire place going and it being cold outside. If I owned the house I would never rent it because I would want to live there or stay there all the time. My husband and I have had a hard year and I have been sick and it was well worth the rental fee and Lyndall was great to work with. We will be back next year!! Lyndall thank you for everything it means allot to me and my husband and Bob, Daisy, Joey, Bart, Susie, Chi Chi and BeBe said thank you:). God Bless!!! Tammy and Gene

                                    Owner response: Tammy, thanks so much for taking the time to review The Getaway. We were so glad to have you and your furry friends! Look forward to seeing you next year! God Bless you too!

                                    We had a fantastic time at Guntersville Getaway. It's one of the prettiest spots on the lake. The house is lovely, clean and comfortable. The views are beautiful from every window. A great place for bird watchers! It's closer to the water than it looks. We'll Be back! Sheila

                                    I didn't notice the star rating when I first submitted a review and would now like to give 5 stars. My husband, Daughter, granddaughter and grandson really enjoyed Guntersville Getaway. It is the perfect answer for family time and down time even when you have to take your work with you as we do. We had good internet connection and was able to maintain our business and relax as well. This is a lovely home, well maintained and thank you to Tracey for warm welcome, as well. Loved the kitchen and dining area but my favorite thing is a comfortable bed to sleep in at night.

                                    Just arrived home from our wonderfully relaxing vacation in Guntersville! Gunterville is such a lovely town with beautiful veiws of the lake and mountains. The state park is breathtaking! This is a beautiful house that has all the comforts of home. I love to cook and the kitchen provided every gadget I needed. I also loved the beautiful stove! The house was emaculately clean. The view of the lake is breathtaking and the back patio is great. My kids loved being able to walk outside and fish and swim. The location and neigborhood is very safe and I didn't worry at all about my kids safety. Lyndall is a gracious and thoughtful hostess! My family is looking forward to going back!

                                    The description of amenities is not accurate. The property is not well maintained or clean. The owner did not provide good service.

                                    Recommended for: Sightseeing.

                                    Owner response: Unfortunately, the leather couch cushion was ripped in two places during their stay and I was not informed of this fact. I am only keeping enough of their deposit to fix the damage. As you can see from other reviews, most guests are happy with the house and often remark on how clean the house is.

                                    I would have to say this was the prettiest place to spend a week. The property is absoulutely beautiful and the house is roomy. Lyndall goes out of her way to make you feel welcome, which definitley makes this feel like a home away from home. I would recommend Guntersville Getaway to anyone looking for rest and relaxation. The worst part of the trip was leaving. P.S. Thank You Lyndall for everything you did to make this vacation special and we can't wait to see you next year. Also Zero says hi and Thank you.

                                    Guntersville Getaway was just what we needed! When we arrived all of us were impressed that the house was even nicer than we imagined from the pictures. It is so clean and cozy. I personally loved waking up to the incredible view of the water! Lyndall is such a joy to deal with! We look forward to spend another week there next year.

                                    We had four adults in our group and were seeking a comfortable fishing getaway on Guntersville Lake for three nights. Guntersville Getaway turned out to be the perfect solution! The property is conveniently located to U.S 431 and amenities are as advertised. Boat ramp access to the lake is located about 1 mile south of the property (on the right) and from there is a quick trip back to a cove off the main channel and a pier that extends away from the house. Electrical power is easily accessible at the shoreline if overnight battery charging is a concern. You can park your boat trailer in the driveway. It is a bit tight for anything 21' and longer but still very manageable. A convenience store is close by in case you need food/gas/ice or similar items. The house was a welcome sight after long days on the water. The living room is spacious and comfortable. The house was clean and well supplied with bed and bath linens. Exterior lighting is superb and makes it easy to safely walk around both the front and backyards at night. The neighborhood is quiet and we felt very safe taking walks at anytime, day or night. Lyndall is an excellent communicator and truly cares about your vacation experience. We certainly enjoyed our stay and plan to return again next year!

                                  Year Purchased: 1958

                                  About the owner: My parents, built this home in 1958. My father helped design the house with it's open living and dining area floor plan. I have kept some of the retro look by leaving an original dial telephone, but it has also been updated with granite counter-tops and wireless internet throughout the house. We are constantly improving the house. In 2012 we put matching ceramic tile throughout the whole house and got new bunk beds that have stairs to the top bunk, not a ladder, I live just 3 miles away, also in Guntersville. My husband and I have lived here for 23 years. He is the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Albertville.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Guntersville:
                                  My parents paid my great grandfather $500 for the property. At first he did not want to sell it to them, but his heart melted when she started to cry, so he relented..

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  It is a jewel of lake front property, because it is not steep and keeps deep water year round. We have kept all the trees, which provides a lot of shade. It is in a cove which protects it. My favorite part about the house is the windows. In almost every room of the house you can look at the serene lake. The retro look has been blended with modern convenience. For example there are modern granite counter tops and antique dressers.
