  • Lake House

    "The eleven girls from our Sunday School Class enjoyed our Girls Getaway Weekend at your lake house. It was convenient to Unclaimed Baggage and Scottsboro Square. The house was spacious for our group. However, we really wished the shower in the laundry room bath had worked. With eleven women trying to "get ready", we needed it. Also, we could have used a few more towels. We really enjoyed sitting on the screened porch--it was very relaxing. We had a great weekend. Rita, thank you for your friendliness and help in working with me on the reservations."

  • Best vacation

    "What an ideal property. Huge rooms and master bedroom is best I have seen. Perfect kitchen with top of line everything. Great balcony with fabulous view. My 2 young granddaughters loved the indoor pools and everyone enjoyed the lazy river. Owner was great to do business with. Just a short drive over to Gulf Beach but we spent 99 percent of time at Caribe pools. We had an awesome vacation!!!!!"

  • We hit the Jackpot ! Exceed expectations and Owner very personable and accommodating !

    "We visited "The Wharf" to attend a concert. I was a bit nervous because I have never used VRBO. We invited another couple and I prayed it would be clean and as nice and well kept as pictured showed. When we arrived, my prayers had been answered. It was very clean. The condo exceeded my expectations. The high ceilings and decorative crown molding added a nice touch. The master suite bed was extremely comfortable as well as the queen in second bedroom. The balcony is large and has great view of marina. We found everything sparkling clean and in working order. We had some schedule changes and the owner was as nice and personable as you could ever have. He truly wanted us to enjoy ourselves. He always responsed quickly to emails and text messages. Could not have asked for a more pleasurable experience. I highly recommend this property and we are already looking at dates to return."

  • Great for Large Family!

    "Our extended family of 16+ stayed at this spacious house for a family get-away--some traveling from Columbia, S.C., Atlanta area and NW Georgia...grandparents, nieces, nephews, cousins...and we had a blast! The view of the mountains to the right and lake everywhere else was breathtaking and the pool was the perfect "attraction" for the children and adults! Sam was very responsive if we had a need or questions, and was only a phone call away. We enjoyed the local eateries, (Top of the River is less than a mile away!) but spent most of our time in the well-equipped kitchen and eating out on the deck (with seating for everyone) overlooking the pool and lake. The kids loved the bunk alcove and there was plenty of space for air mattresses. We love Lake Guntersville and really enjoyed our time together building great family memories in this beautiful house."

Alabama Travel Tips

Known as the "Heart of Dixie," Alabama borders Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi and Florida. Though the capital of Alabama is Montgomery, the most populated city is Birmingham and the oldest city is Mobile, which was founded by French colonists.

For anyone looking to escape cold, wet winters, the climate in Alabama ranges from mild to hot with summer temperatures climbing to 100 degrees - perfect for a warm getaway. Winters are less harsh here, with temperatures ranging from 30 to 60 degrees.

History buffs will enjoy exploring any of the state’s 36 national historic landmarks and more than 1,200 locations that are part of the National Register of Historic Places. All of Alabama is steeped in rich and interesting facts from its beginning up until the present time.

Things to Do in Alabama

U.S. Space & Rocket Center: When visiting Huntsville, be sure to stop by the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, a museum showcasing achievements, rockets and artifacts from the United States’ space program. The museum is home to more than 1,500 permanent pieces relating to space exploration. The U.S. Space & Rocket Center also offers two camp programs where people can stay on-site and learn more about space with the U.S. Space Camp or aviation with the Aviation Challenge. Along with displays, you can also check out the Spacedome Theater, Rocket Park and Education Training Center that houses NASA’s Educator Resource Center.

Birmingham Zoo and Montgomery Zoo: Animal lovers are sure to enjoy a trip to either zoo in Birmingham or Montgomery, or maybe even both! The Birmingham Zoo is home to about 800 different animals of more than 200 species. It’s also a force in elephant conservation, featuring a Trails of Africa exhibit. Along with the elephants, you can visit with rhinos, giraffes, birds and other creatures. The Montgomery Zoo allows visitors to take a trip to South America, Asia and other countries without ever leaving Alabama. With more than 500 animals, there’s plenty to see here, including elephants, penguins, zebras and more.

USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park: One of the country’s most unique military attractions, The USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park provides an exciting experience for the whole family. Located on the western shore of Mobile Bay, the park features a collection of wartime aircraft and ships. The USS Alabama is a national historic landmark and a great way to pay respects to soldiers who have fallen in the past.

Bryant-Denny Stadium: In Tuscaloosa, you’ll find the home of the University of Alabama and Bryant-Denny Stadium. Originally the football shrine was built to honor the university’s first president, it was amended later to also honor the famous Alabama football coach Paul “Bear” Bryant. Alabama is also home to one of the United States’ oldest college rivalries between Auburn University and the University of Alabama. If you visit during football season, taking in a game between the Crimson Tide and the Tigers is sure to be entertaining both on and off the field.

Huntsville Botanical Garden: While visiting Huntsville, be sure to stop at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. Free and open year-round, it’s home to a butterfly house as well as a variety of gardens, including aquatic, wildflower, fern, rose and others. Spend the day meandering through each space and savor the natural beauty everywhere you look.

Shopping and Dining in Alabama

Bel Air Mall: Located in Mobile, Bel Air Mall is a major attraction for excited shoppers. Featuring more than 130 stores, there no doubt you can find exactly what you’re looking for while visiting Alabama at local shops or bigger name stores. In addition, Bel Air Mall is home to a quaint Venetian carousel and many restaurants when you need to take a break and refuel.

Wintzell’s Oyster House: For a true Southern seafood meal, visit Mobile’s historic landmark, Wintzell’s Oyster House. It’s been open for more than 75 years and has grown and expanded from a six-stool oyster bar to the landmark it is now.

Mike and Ed’s BBQ: For some Southern-style barbecue, visit Auburn’s Mike and Ed’s BBQ which dishes up some of the tastiest pulled pork and home cooking in the state. There's no excuse for leaving hungry here - the portions are big and chances are you will clean your plate.
