                      Our cabin is sitting on the Upper Bear Creek Reservoir which is known best for its black bass (largemouth and spotted) fishing, but fishing for crappie, catfish and bream is good also. The lake is renowned for its trophy bass fishing. Fish over 5 pounds are common, with 8 pound and larger bass being taken each year. Upper Bear has been ranked first-5 times and second-3 times, for the least number of angling hours exerted to catch a bass in excess of 5 pounds.

                      For activities out of the water, the Bankhead National Forest, Sipsey Wilderness, and Dismal Canyon waterfalls are nearby, as well as a golf course less than an hour away. The Bankhead National Forest provides all kinds of outdoor activities including camping, hunting, horseback riding and ATV riding. Wildlife and bird watching are also very popular, as is hunting the flora and fauna of the area.

                      A 1.5 mile hiking trail on the canyon floor follows the stream through skyreaching boulders, past thundering waterfalls, into a secret world of mossy-green and pearl gray filled with ferns and giant trees.

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About: I'm a resident of Okeechobee, Florida and the owner of Rustic Style and Cabins, a retail store for the wilderness lovers. I am also a new Real Estate Associate with a local company. My family traveled when I was a child and we settled in West Palm Beach, Florida, where I lived for 25 years before moving a couple of times and settling in Okeechobee.

                      Why Russellville:
                      I was visiting a friend in Huntsville. While they were working I went looking at property for fun. NO intentions of living in Alabama. I got with a local realtor to show me some places. The realtor had a guy (Mr. D) that just put this property on the market and he rode with us as we laughed and joked the whole 1.5 hours from Huntsville. I thought Mr D was pulling my leg when he said this was one of God's most beautiful properties. We got to the gate and walked through the trees. OMG! It took my breath away. I the ride home I bought the land. I camped there on my vacations for a year. When I went to visit my mom in Tallahassee. There was a log home seminar in town so we went. At the end of the seminar I was so impressed with Daniel Boone Log Homes, I bought this kit and built it on my piece of haven. This is MY vacation dream house. Life is different now and I have decided to share my home with you. I hope you love it and respect it. It was and is still my dream home. A year after I built my log home I became a Daniel Boone Log Home distributor in Okeechobee, Fl. The property is 20 acres of hiking, wildlife watching, waterfalls (2), fishing, boating and BBQ's. This is a a natural landscape and changes with the seasons. Like all natural environments, ALWAYS be watchful for wildlife critters, good and dangerous.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      The first day after the home was completed I was there sitting on the front porch amazed at the view. As the sun set the golden hugh of the suns rays blanketed the porch. The natural color of the logs radiated with the sense of peacefulness. I remembered from where I came as a child to having accomplished this dream of a log home and I was grateful with the blessing God had given me. This home is truly a highlight in my life and I love the times I still spend there.
