Lake Mitchell chalet description

Junction Park is a centrally located vacation site on 75 acres of natural beauty with a view of two running streams and garden. It is a perfect retreat to relax and unwind and is just a short drive south of Birmingham and less than five miles from I-65. It is conveniently located yet secluded with a private quarter mile driveway off US 31 with a privacy gate. Nature trails, shaded grounds, garden, and fishing make this a special place to visit and reflect on simple pleasures. Relax on the wrap around porch and listen to the running water or enjoy a quiet walk in the woods. Junction Park offers three very comfortable sized bedrooms with a view and a spacious common room with fireplace and water/wood view. Rustic decor with many 'one of a kind' antiques will bring back an era of yerteryears. Each bedroom has full baths with claw foot tubs. Upstair bedroom has 900 sq. ft. with spectular view. A big screen TV is located in the great room and bedroom. This area is rich in history, small town charm, and Southern hospitality but a short drive to larger towns, Birmingham and Prattvile. History buffs will enjoy the Confederate Memorial Park and local attractions. The Peach Park and restaurant is just up the road. Deer viewing is very commonplace on the property.

                    This was our fourth stay at Junction Park. As always we had a wonderful time and was able to share a couple of nights with our cousins. Junction Park is always our first choice when planning a vacation whether for a week or a weekend. From the moment the gate opens you know you are in for something special. So peaceful and relaxing. Love sitting on the deck looking out over the merging creeks listening to the water rushing over the rocks. The uniqueness of the furnishings and antiques along with the history behind them makes for an interesting stay. Excellent kitchen setup with modern appliances, soft beds, large clawfoot tubs and comfortable sofas and chairs are better than any place we've stayed at. The owners are very nice and accommodating and we want to thank them again for working with us on such short notice. We are so glad we found this piece of God's paradise on earth only 30 minutes away but so secluded you would think you were in the mountains without having to drive so far. The interstate is only five miles away but there is no traffic noise. Several nearby restaurants and shopping including a Walmart are just on the other side of the interstate if you feel the need to go out and owners have several menus from the local restaurants and information on places of interest. This is one of Alabama's best kept secrets. People are so surprised when we share pictures of our stay and then find out where it is. Looking forward to our next stay already.

                    Our family stayed at the chalet for Thanksgiving. The chalet was more than we expected. The grounds , the unique design of the cabin and the interesting furnishings were beautiful. We hiked and visited the near by antique shops. Shopping and restaurants were close as well. The owners were terrific and I recommend this place highly. We had a great time and cannot wait to go back.

                    wonderful retreat, the cabin and surroundings were beautiful. Wonderful hospitality by the owners. Would highly recommend this for anyone wanted a quiet and peaceful place to rest. All you need is your food and everything else is there. We really enjoyed our stay. Will definitely be coming back.

                    For my daughter's sweet sixteen party I was looking for a place to host 6 teenage girls. I could not have been happier with the choice. From the moment the gate opened and we drove down the long driveway I knew it was the perfect place. Pictures do not do this wonderful property justice. The creeks are breath taking. The rooms are very large and decorated beautifully. The antiques were amazing. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. We definitely hope to go back!

                    This place was awesome!!!! Loved the area and the serene surroundings. Great place for a family reunion or just a getaway for the family to get connected again. There is plenty of wildlife (deer, birds, and raccoon at the waters edge) to see and the landscape was great.Will return. It is so much more than the pictures show!!! I would recommend this house to anyone! The owners were so accommodating and helpful, even left us sweet rolls. Very easy to find with the directions that the owners sent us. Felt very safe and secure!!!

                    We absolutely love Junction Park! The streams are picturesque, and the sounds of the running water make it such a peaceful place. The porch is a perfect place for family meals outside or to just relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. The house is comfortable, and was well stocked for our needs. Even when we had a summer storm, we all enjoyed the sounds of the rain on the metal roof. The adults loved the peace and quiet, and the children and adults alike loved splashing around and skipping rocks in the streams. We plan to return as often as possible.

                    The place is very well appointed and the antiques gave us much to look at and talk about. The place was clean and quiet and I (as as woodworker) especially enjoyed the beautiful plank walls!

                    Pictures do NOT do it justice. The place is amazingly relaxing. The sound from the creeks never got old. Have vacationed all over the u.s. and never been somewhere so peaceful..the stress melts away instantly. The owners are extremely nice and overly accomodating. We are planning to go back a few more times this year!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: My wife and I are retired and enjoy spending time with our two dobermans, Angus and Chloe. We enjoy antiquing, history, and nature. We put all these things together and came up with Junction Park. It has been a labor of love for us and I hope you will love it too.

                  Why the Owner Chose Lake Mitchell:
                  Verbena is a great little town and we fell in love with the property's natural beauty and privacy. It is conveniently located to the interstate and bigger town attractions, but still has the 'get away' appeal. Clanton has a golf course, dining, antiques and open flea market twice a week, and the famous Peach Park. Two large lakes are close to the property.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                  You can take your shoes off and walk down the running stream, have a picnic on the wrap around porch, or find yourself a secluded spot in the woods to listen to the birds and wildlife. You can ride your bicycle down the quarter mile driveway or take a nature hike in the woods and never leave the property. A privacy gate keeps the grounds secluded. A large BBQ grill is available if you are in the grilling mood with several dining tables available on the porch. There is a flower garden in back of house with arbors and sittings areas for your enjoyment. You might want to enjoy a bath in one of the large antique claw foot tubs and just relax.
