Guntersville cabin description

Located right off of Hwy 79 between Guntersville and Scottboro, the cabin is close to Goose Pond Colony and Waterfront Grocery. Only a 5 min. drive to the Mink Creek boat launch, this lakefront cabin has great fishing, duck hunting, swimming and boating for a relaxing getaway in the woods. Perfect for any season or activity. Large dock for sunning and watching the world go by. Electrical hook ups for charging your battery at the dock. Boathouse is not available for boats though your boat can be left over night at the dock if desired. Canoe on premises allows you to enjoy the water at a slow pace. A screened in porch and large patio along with a hammock and swing give beautiful water views as well as plenty of wildlife to watch up close as well as as relax. This rustic lake house is reminiscent of old times at the lake. Pine floors, walls and ceilings give a casual feel but large great room feels big with kitchen/living room combination. Short drives to Goose Pond Colony for golf and dining, the quaint city of Scottsboro for shopping at Unclaimed Baggage and a short trip to Cathederal Caverns and Walls of Jericho for nature trips are all within a 10 - 30 minute trip of the cabin. There are about 50 steps from the parking area to the house. There is a railing and most people do fine. From the house to the dock is only about 10 steps. Great up close view of the water and wildlife!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: I grew up spending weekends at Guntersville Lake and have wonderful memories on the lake with my family fishing, boating, swimming and just hanging out. Wanted my children and family to enjoy the same experiences that I had and for us to make many memories for years to come.

              Why the Owner Chose Guntersville:
              Deep water(8-9 ft) for swimming and boating was a priority for us as well as being close to the main channel. The house is located close to the water, you feel like you are right by it from the house. You can hear the waves lapping at the sea wall at night, watch herons dip down and catch a fish and see fisherman catch fish after fish right by your dock. It is 45 minutes from our home, so a day trip, weekend trip or all week are all convenient. It is also close to the city of Scottsboro, so that a quick trip to town if you need Walmart or the grocery store doesn't take all day. Easy to find off the highway, but you feel miles away from home.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              From the first time we walked into the cabin, I knew this was the one. We wanted a cabin that everyone could enjoy and not worry about 'messing up' but would enable us to sit and relax and enjoy the company of those around us. Everyone comments on how cozy and relaxing it is--they don't want to leave. From the screened in porch, to the stone patio to the large dock, there is a space for everyone to find their 'spot'.
