Guntersville house description

This cozy lake house was built by one of the original German Scientists who came to work in the space program with Werner Von Braun in the 1950's. A group of them built houses in this quiet cove of Lake Guntersville because it reminded them of their mountainous native land. They were known to spend hours working in their beautifully landscaped yards and then gather in the late afternoon to swim or float on rafts and visit with friends and neighbors in the quiet lake setting.

The house is perfect for accommodating a family who enjoys being together and entertaining friends of all ages. It is great for a family gathering because it has many open spaces for gathering inside and outdoors and plenty of comfortable beds. Great private boathouse (built in 2003) and party dock great for swimming, fishing or even star gazing. Nice flat manicured yard with jungle gym and rope swing for kids, ideal for backyard football.

Two small ponds for bait and catch habitat. (That will keep your kids busy). The boathouse is new and has one boat slip available plus one jet ski slip. The porch is covered and has an expansive view of the yard and lake. It is well protected even during rainy weather and in fact is very comfortable to sit and watch a storm blow by. The water is eight feet deep at the dock with a gradual slope to the shore making it perfect for swimming.

There is a large comfortable room for gathering around the fireplace in colder months, and a separate room for piling up and watching TV or movies. There is also a playroom/bunkroom for the kids with a separate TV. This abundance of living spaces make this a comfortable stay no matter your style of relaxation.

Lake Guntersville is world famous for its bass fishing. We have pulled in 5 pound bass right off the dock. Honeycomb is about eight miles west of the town Guntersville, and 20 minutes from Huntsville city limits. A public access boat launch is conveniently
located one mile from the house.


Bed configuration: Bedroom one, King-size bed. Bedroom two, King-size bed. Bedroom three, twin-size bunkbed plus one single. Bunkroom/playroom, 2 single beds and twin-size bunkbed.
