"My husband and I had a great week at the polecat pad, we loved the lil room, had everything we needed. The boathouse was great to keep our boat, the pier was a quite place where we spent most of our time, fishing and swimming! We loved the area, we even got an invitation from neighbors to hang out around a campfire. Loved the place, and Mrs. Libby was a blessing to work with, we can not wait to go again! The trip to town for groceries was only a short distance, that gave us more time to spend enjoying our cabin. While in our room we were very comfortable, the bed was very comfortable! The atmosphere in the lil cabin was very comfy! I can't think of one thing that I would have changed."

"Overall we really enjoyed our stay and family vacation! Due to the close location to Huntsville, family members were able to come and go during our stay. Loved being able to bring our dog along too!
The house was clean and comfortable with a nice family room with TV, large dining room, great open kitchen, 2 large bedrooms, 2 smaller bedrooms and a wonderful porch overlooking the water. The a/c worked great too! WiFi helped tremendously since cell phone signal was non-existent for AT&T (ok with Verizon). We were very comfortable!
Unfortunately, the outside was another matter. The grounds were in a sad state of disrepair. Shrubs and all flower beds were very overgrown and full of poison ivy. The image that shows the outdoor patio no longer has that view due to large bushes. The jungle gym was questionable due to protruding nails and splintered wood. The 2 ponds were stagnant and overgrown. All this to say what used to be a pristine yard (according to neighbors) now needs lots of TLC. Until such time, probably not the best place for small children.
The boathouse was good. Our wake board boat was too large for the inside lift, but we were able to use the covered outside without the lift (lift only rated for 2500#). Both would work great for fisherman. Great water for swimming and water sports right off the dock. Boat launch was very close on Highway 431 and on-water fuel was available nearby at Sunrise Marina-Honeycomb.
The rental manager was super nice and accommodating. She worked with us on a late departure and we certainly appreciated her flexibility."
