                            The Gibbons Lake Home was a wonderful place to spend Thanksgiving with our family. We had over 13 people in the house and had more than enough room for everyone. It is a beautiful high end house with very personal tocuhes by Angela and Bobby. Almost everything you would need is already there from the coffee pots (yes more than one) and the coffee to appliances, containers, dishes, cookware, napkins, silverware, tissue, soap, shampoo, etc. You just need to bring your family and razor! They even inlcude two grills, propane, charcoal, and a fire pit with the wood. There are two fully equiped kitchens and tow living room ares. There is two spare blow up (high end) mattesses and they even include spare batteries. The house is super clean and you are blown away with how nice it is a soon as you walk in the door. And they even leave you a nice goody basket full of treats for your stay! This is by far nicer than any condo or hotel I have stayed in and in my wife's words was "absolutely perfect".

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, girls getaway, adventure seekers, families with teenagers, tourists without a car, families with young children, sightseeing, pet owners, age 55+.

                            Owner response: A five star hotel! Thank You! We were thrilled that your family chose to celebrate Thanksgiving at the house and couldn't be happier to hear that it ended up being "perfect"! Also so glad to know that you had everything needed. When it comes to kitchen gadgets and appliances, we try our best to supply the same things at the lake house that we have in our own home. We love to cook! As for the cleanliness, we can't take all of the credit. We appreciate guests such as your family that help us to keep the house nice and tidy. We thank you and look forward to having you again next summer!

                            My parents had their 50th anniversary here.They really enjoyed fishing off the covered porch,seeing the ducks,geese and other river wildlife.You really don't need to bring anything other than clothes to enjoy this very nice piece of property.The whole house is stocked with almost anything you need other than food.Also accessible by boat.I would reccomend this to anybody that enjoys the river or just some time away from home.Truly a very relaxing place.

                            Owner response: We were honored that your family chose our home for such a special occasion and are thrilled to hear that it was enjoyed by all! For you to say that it was the "Nicest Rental" that you've ever stayed means so very much to us! We must agree that the covered patio is quite the unique and convenient spot. Being just a few steps from the house, it's a great place to fish, grill, or just hang out next to the water. So glad to know that the ducks paid you a visit too! We hope they allowed you to hand feed them as they normally do. Be sure to congratulate your parents for us and tell them that their family will always be welcomed back with open arms!

                            The Gibbons lake home is by for the greatest place I have ever had the pleasure of staying. To simply say that this home is clean and accomodating would be an understatment. The hospitality that the owners of this lake house provide are '' second to none " !! I will return for another stay in the near future.

I can imagine that you have stayed in many nice places while on fishing trips, so for you to say that our home is "The Best" is both overwhelming and much appreciated. Our main goal is to make sure that our guests are taken care of in every way possible and comfortable during their stay. Thank you so very much for taking the time to let us know that we are doing just that. We can't wait to have you back again!

It truly is a peaceful place that actually gives you no choice BUT to refresh and rejuvenate. We agree that the book of the history of the house is so very special, just as the story that it tells.

                            40th Birthday Celebration!

                            My husband & I live in Muscle Shoals and spend many weekends on Wilson in our boat. For his 40th birthday this year, I knew he would want 2 things: to be on the water & spend time with our friends. During my VRBO hunt for a summer beach vacation condo, I happen to search 'Wilson Lake' to see what was available. The first photo I clicked on for the Shoal Creek Gibbons Home was all I needed to see. I knew he would love it! This would be where we celebrate his surprise 40th getaway! This past weekend was one of the most amazing memories of our lives! Thank you Bobby & Angela for sharing your beautiful home with us & our friends!! It is so ideal for entertaining & I was beyond impressed with how clean & organized you keep everything. Your attention to detail & every effort you have made to ensure we had a pleasant stay is not only appreciated but something we have never experienced in all of our travels. And to find that here in the Shoals makes us want to plan more vacations close to home! :) We look forward to our next stay & are so grateful to live near this gorgeous lake & home! And any guests looking for local catering, Smoking on the Boulevard & Sweet Basil are awesome! Jeff at SOTB smoked delicious meat for our party. Sweet Basil made a gorgeous Red Velvet Cake!

                            Owner response: Tiffany, you have no idea how glad we are that you happened to search for 'Wilson Lake' on a whim. You are such a sweet person and we couldn't be happier that your husband ended up having everything that he would wish for on his 40th birthday! Many of our guests have foregone a beach vacation to instead stay local. We love that and, like you, know that we are so very blessed to have the beautiful views of the Tennessee River from almost every angle of the entire Shoals area. We can't thank you enough for choosing our home for the celebration and hope that you return soon! (We will agree that 'Smokin' on the Blvd' is awesome! The fact that they are two minutes away from the house makes it even better!)

                            We had a Great time at this rental. The property was better than we expected! It was very clean and equipped with everything anyone could possibly need. The beds were all comfortable and the baths are incredible!! We plan to return next year for another week. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a really nice place to spend a week. Plenty of room for an entire family or group. The fishing was good too! Beautiful sunrises as the front deck faces the east. You will not be disappointed!

                            Owner response: We are thrilled to know that you had a great time and also plan to return. Having return guests is one of the highest compliments we could receive! Next year the baths will be even better, as we plan on revamping them with ceramic tiled floors and showers. Also, both bathrooms will soon have jetted tubs! We are very excited about this project and hope that it will help to make our guests even more comfortable! We look forward to having you and your family again!

                            What an amazing vacation opportunity! This home was exactly as described and more. We used the house for a family get together/80th birthday celebration. The home entrance and decks are located on a single level making easy access for those with limited mobility. I've never rented a house/condo that provided all the possible kitchen appliances, condiments...everything you have at home for meal preparation and comfort....this house has it all. The house was well decorated and clean, and the furnishings are like new. Angela was a gracious host, although we have never meet in person, I feel like we are friends. She was quick to answer my questions as our dates approached and sent a text indicating the house was ready on the day of checkin. I will certainly recommend this rental to friends, and hope to host family events here again in the future. Angela and Bobby, thanks for sharing your house and the history behind the house (the Gibbons Shoal House Book) was a creative addition!

                            Owner response: Never did we think that opening up our home to others would be so fulfilling! Either by meeting in person, talking on the phone, or simply through email, we have 'met' such wonderful people and made what we hope to be long-lasting friendships with many. It touches my heart that you mentioned the book about the history of our special 'Gibbons Home'. That was a gift from my dear sister, with whom I have shared many memories at the house. She, along with Bobby and I, couldn't be happier to know that you and many others have now made your own memories there. We appreciate you and look forward to your next visit!

                            My sister and I booked this home for a multi-generational family fun weekend. I have rented several VRBO properties but I believe this is the cleanest one I have stayed in! It is very well stocked and at every turn you can see the attention to detail and personal touches of the owners. There are two distinct living areas and two separate decks so everyone can spread out. It was very convenient, located right at Shoals Creek bridge. The thing that sets this property apart is the lot. It is a very level lot with a sidewalk right up to the water! The flatness of the property makes it great for older folks. The grandparents were able to sit up on the deck, prop their feet up on the railing, and watch all their kids and grandkids play in the water. The experience is truly priceless. Thanks for a offering you home as a vacation rental so that families like us can share it and make memories! We will definitely be return guests.

                            Owner response: I can't thank you enough for your kind words and am more than happy that you felt that the house was great for all ages! When we gutted the house and started the renovation, our main goal was to make sure that it would be fun and functional to everyone. I'm so glad to know that we did just that. We can't take all of the credit though...the flat land definitely helped to make this possible! We can't wait to have you all again!

                            My family and I have just returned from a most awesome visit. The Gibbons lake Home was everything promised and more. It was very well stocked even flour for my sausage gravy.All this made our stay very easy and the convenience of it's location made shopping a dream. We ordered pizza and Rick's barbeque, grilled ribeyes and ate Italian all right there. We did not eat out as there were so many of us but there were lots of restaurants close by.We just enjoyed being together and playing board games at night. Apple to apple is a very loud game. During the day there was boating, tubing, and just lazy riding. We even celebrated a three year old's birthday.Publx makes a great cake. We were blessed with great weather, fellowship and the best of all, love of each other.

                            Owner response: Janice, I knew that you and your family would be a perfect fit for the house the moment I first spoke with you. You confirmed that by mentioning the flour for your gravy! Hundreds of pans of sausage or tomato gravy (my aunt's specialty) were made in the house through the years. I'm glad to hear that you helped to keep that tradition going! I'm excited that you enjoyed the board games too! It means so much to us that you had such a wonderful time with your family and would be thrilled to have you back!

                            Our family had an awesome vacation at the Gibbons Family Lake House. We had a main group of nine people, which increased to 11 over the weekend. We never felt crowded in the spacious and clean rental house. The pictures accurately describe the house. However, actually walking into the house and seeing for ourselves the beauty and the spaciousness of the house and lakefront is indescribable. I fell in love with the house within a few minutes. The amenities that are provided were numerous and more than expected. The fishing off the pier/lakefront was great. The fish were really biting the week we were there. We brought a boat so the covered boat dock with the automatic lift was most helpful. We took multiple boat rides and did some tubing every day. The owners, Angela and Bobby, were most gracious and offered to serve our needs every time we spoke. I never got to meet them in person but I felt like I had known them all my life. I would recommend this property to anyone of my friends or relatives, who were looking for a house to rent on a lake. Beautiful space with great southern hospitality. We are hoping to visit again next summer!

                            Owner response: Thank you for your kind words! We are so glad to know that you and your family enjoyed your time at the house. I honestly think that you all hold the record for the most fish caught...137 to be exact! That is awesome! We're also happy to hear that the boat lift came in handy for you. It was our pleasure to have you and we hope to do so again!

                          Owner info

                          About the owner: We are just a couple of the many family members that have enjoyed this special home on Shoal Creek. Keeping with the open house feel that we have all always known and loved, we made the decision to let others enjoy it too!

                          Why the Owner Chose Florence:
                          The land was first purchased by the family in 1964 and has been 'home' to many. Countless wonderful memories have been made with family and friends through the years.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The most unique benefit of our home is most definitely its close proximity to the water. The house is literally inches from the water! Another specialty would be the near distance to all restaurants, shopping centers, and many attractions that Florence and The Shoals has to offer! Also, we must not forget the fish! The enormous blue catfish shown was caught off of the back patio of the house on November 10, 2012. The area is also known for it's abundance of bass!
