Guntersville Lake Houses for Outdoor Recreation
Guntersville, Alabama and its lake are located in the northern section of the state in Marshall County. The location of Guntersville is such that it sits on the southernmost point of the Tennessee River. There is a dam between the lake and river which helps form the lake. Many use it for spring and summer activities. The lake is in Sequatchie Valley, providing cover from the wind and other elements that could cool off the lake and surrounding air. Temperatures in the summer can reach above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, with the water temperature around 80 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit in spots. Guntersville Lake is an appealing setting for Guntersville Lake condos, not only for the views but their closeness to the water. While visiting Guntersville Lake, waterskiing, boating, fishing, and swimming are all possible activities. The forests surrounding the lake provide an area for hiking, walking, and biking.
Arriving at Guntersville Lake Condos
Guntersville is a relatively small community in Alabama. Therefore, driving to the city and its surrounding lake is not an option via the interstate. From I-59 or I-565, you would need to take Highway 431 to Highway 79. Lake Guntersville is a little further away from the highways where you would find the Guntersville Lake vacation rentals. You would have to take a few smaller roads like 67 or 58 to arrive at Guntersville Lake South Point.
Fun for the Entire Family in Guntersville
When you become tired of the endless days on the beach or just want a little something different, heading to Guntersville is your best option. There are larger cities an hour's drive from Guntersville Lake but Guntersville has an amazing array of attractions and restaurants. One place to visit in Guntersville is the Museum and Cultural Center which offers special and permanent exhibits regarding steamboats and local history. If history and culture are second on your list, you might think about the Stoney Mountain Golf Course. It is considered the “epitome of redneck golf” and it is guaranteed to provide entertainment. Shopping excursions are also among the fun you and your group can have while at these vacation rentals. Local shops are open for souvenir gathering. Items can include t-shirts, jewelry, or gator products to impress those back at home.
Eating Gator for Lunch in Guntersville
Alabama and most of the southeastern tip of the United States are well known for their alligators. Alabama is most particularly known for their dishes made from gator. If you are feeling adventurous, there are a couple of places where you might consider dining. Bistro La Lina is known for the Southwestern menu they provide and even more so for the Gator Wrap lunch or dinner plate. If you are wary of gator, the Big Mammou is made of chicken with a blend of andouille sausage, garlic, and green onion over a bed of fettuccine. Top ‘O the River is another location in Guntersville for a meal, as they are the most popular family restaurant for residents and visitors. If you are on a budget, you might skip eating out in favor of eating at the Guntersville Lake houses you rent. Each of these homes will have a kitchen where you can prepare the fish you catch or any other meal.
