Jeff Baker, Property Manager since 2007

Come create your ultimate vacation in our newly updated luxury home. Heron's Landing is located on beautiful Lake Guntersville, Alabama, home to some of the best fishing in the South. If fishing isn't your passion, enjoy the porch swing on the dock while taking in the surrounding wildlife. Better yet, catch a nap, sip a drink, or read a book in the quiet solitude of the screened porch on the boat dock. Pure paradise!

When taking a break from the beautiful lake, relax by the glistening saltwater pool, sipping a beverage of your choice. If being active is more your style, shoot some hoops, work on your putting skills, play kick ball on the level yard, or push kids on the swings of the outdoor play set.

As the day heats up, there is plenty of space to get out of the sun but still enjoy the ambience of the outdoors. The pool house is equipped with a kitchenette, granite bar, and gas grill to enjoy food and drinks under a covered eating area. The screened porch also allows you to be poolside while cooling off in the shade.

Whether the day is just beginning or coming to an end, there is plenty of space for everyone to spread out indoors. With six bedrooms, four full baths and two half baths, two living rooms, and a game room, there is abundant space to meet everyone's needs. The five flat screen televisions, foosball table, and ping pong table provides choices for all ages.

Heron's Landing boasts the colonial charm of yesteryear while providing the modern amenities of today. The house is a New England Federal style that was designed after the Deane-Barstow House built in 1807. A fully equipped kitchen with Vermont Soapstone countertops, wide plank pine floors with hand forged nails, and cabinets with an aged farmhouse patina, take guests back to a long forgotten era.

We hope you find rest and relaxation while making memories to last a lifetime!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay! The home was very spacious for our big group. A few families decided to rent this home for a weekend getaway and we absolutely loved it! There was more than enough room to spread out in the home. The kids loved all the things to do! Between swimming all day, or playing out in the yard on the putting green and basketball court, they were always entertained. We stayed outside all day and night. I don't have one bad thing to say about this place. I wish I could live here! We will definitely return.

This property was PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

We had 13 family members stay at this property and everyone agreed that we had everything we needed for the perfect vacation. The house is beautiful. We felt like we were staying in someone's home as a guest - rather than in a rental property. Very nicely appointed. Kitchen was well-stocked. We will be back!

Great home and property for our extended family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Heron’s Landing! There were five families who stayed at the house, and there was more than enough room for everyone. We especially loved the screened in porch and outdoor areas! It was great being able to watch the kids in the pool from the comfort of the screened in porch. The kitchen was well-stocked and had everything we needed for meal preparation. The owner and property manager were both kind and attentive. Everything was clean and orderly for our arrival. We have rented homes through VRBO for the past five years and Heron’s Landing has been the best “fit” for our family. We are definitely considering coming back again! One upgrade we would like to see is queen beds in place of the full beds. This would definitely be more comfortable for the couples who land in these rooms. But overall a great week!

Great place for large family with kids

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time to stay at this property. Met all of our needs for group of 15. House is well stocked and roomy. The outdoor kitchen area by the pool is perfect. The boat house is also nice to sit and watch the family on the boat or enjoy some quiet time. We definitely hope to return again

Beautiful property and home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here for a family vacation. The multiple living spaces, gorgeous Lake view, and putting green were highlights. The only downside was the double beds, we really suggest putting in at least queens to suite adult couples comfortably.

Owner's Response: It is great to hear that you had an enjoyable stay during your family vacation. Also, I appreciate your suggestion for larger beds and hopefully will be able to address it in the future. Thank you for choosing Heron's Landing!

Road Cyclists at the Lake

Heron's Landing worked extremely well for the 2 couples, 1 single lady and 6 single men who spent 6 nights during the second half of April riding the nearby roads as part of a spring training camp. The house was quite spacious and the recent updates demonstrate the owners' commitment to the property. The fuBball and table tennis were bonuses that I did not expect to be used frequently, but they were a hit.

The only downer was the goose poop in the back lawn that rendered that area difficult to use for Frisbee or other group activities. We still had plenty of spaces inside and outside to gather so no real issue.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review and giving Heron's Landing 5 stars. I am so glad that the weather didn't impact your biking and that you also had time to enjoy the game room. Please come again!
