About the property

Private cove just off main channel of Lake Guntersville - 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths

This waterfront home is nestled in an isolated cove right off the main channel of Lake Guntersville and sleeps 18 people comfortably. Reel Paradise is conveniently located close to well known Waterfront Bay Grocery/Tackle and Preston Island Boat Launch. There is plenty of room to park several vehicles, trucks, and trailers on the property. Once you arrive, you can launch your boat and then tie it to the pier at our place for the rest of your stay. We await the avid bass fishermen and families ready to enjoy the lake. Not only is this house perfect for fishermen, deer and duck hunters will love it! There are ducks in this private, secluded cove all throughout the year. Deer are spotted in the backyard frequently. The property is surrounded by 120 acres of TVA land, which is free to hunt with a hunter's permit.

Lake Guntersville is 67,900 acres in size providing enough waterways for fishing, recreational boating, jet skiing, kayaking, and canoeing.

"Reel Paradise" provides you the perfect view of the lake from the screened porch, dining room, living room, or master suite. Upon entering this 5 bedroom, 4 bath home, you will find a fully equipped kitchen making you feel right at home. Everything you need to clean, cook, and serve for a large group awaits you. Beds are super comfortable with 100% cotton sheets, nice comforters, and extra blankets if needed. A canoe and fishing kayak is in the garage for your use. You will find all you need for a perfect Lake Getaway.

We have a huge fire pit by the water's edge to cook your fresh fish or roast marshmallows to make smores. This is the perfect place to make wonderful memories.

We invite large groups to our home. Some of the best memories we have growing up are from the church retreats we attended. The backyard is secluded which makes it great for church/faculty/business retreats.

This house is also handicap accessible. There are no stairs to climb in order to access the lake or house. There is a ramp to the dock to board your boat. We have a golf cart that is available for an extra fee of $75.00 per day. Once you book, let me know if you are interested in renting the golf cart as well. We use the golf for transporting our parents and food items down to the lake. It would be helpful for the elderly or anyone with a handicap. Or you can simply drive your truck down to the lake.

One of the best features of this house has to be the screened porch. It is a quiet place for reading a good book while sitting on the porch swing and enjoying your coffee.

The master suite has a king size bed, a day bed, and a 40 inch TV with Roku stick for streaming your favorites. The master bath has a shower, jacuzzi, sauna, and two vanities . There is also a honeymoon suite complete with a red, heart-shaped jacuzzi tub, king size bed, and flat screen tv with Roku stick for streaming what you like. The kids will love the bunk room which sleeps 7 and has a tv with PlayStation 3 connected. The lighthouse bedroom has a king size bed. The palm bedroom has a full size bed. There is plenty of entertainment to keep everyone busy; billards/pool table, PlayStation, XBOX 360, video games, board games, classic movies, and poker table to make sure you have a great time at the lake house! We also have Internet and WIFI available with a subscription to SLING TV and Netflix. There is an Amazon Fire Stick, and several Roku sticks throughout the house for you to stream your favorite shows or movies. Every bedroom has a television.

You pets are welcome, we just ask that they spend their time outside or in the garage area because we have frequent renters who have pet allergies.

Book your stay for a Guntersville Lake Getaway today!

About Paula Phillips

I am a teacher. I am married and we have two wonderful children - 16 and 17 years old.

Paula Phillips purchased this house in 2017

Why Paula Phillips chose Scottsboro

I have always needed "blue space" in my life to help me relax. It doesn't matter if I'm at the beach or at the lake, just being on the water makes me happy!

What makes this house unique

I love spending time with my family. This house is big enough for us all =)

Perfect based on my requirements!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for large groups. I never had more than 9 family members at any one time but the house will accommodate 16 in beds (assuming 2 people in doubles, queens, or kings). The bunk room is perfect for kids leaving 4 private bedrooms for the adults/couples. The house was clean, comfortable, and extremely well stocked. The attraction is the lake, the ability to comfortably accommodate large groups (you can seat 18 at the dining room tables), and the house/property offers many recreational options.

The house was warm, well lit, and very welcoming when I arrived at dusk. The owner, Paula, provided a decorated Christmas tree which was very much appreciated. I had a few questions during my three week stay and mostly communicated with Paula via email. She always responded within a very short time-frame, was very helpful, and very accommodating.

Fantastic Lake house Rental! 🙌🏻

  • 5 of 5

Had a blast with 10 of my former co-workers last weekend...I am so glad I booked the Reel Paradise for our group! We enjoyed the spacious den, well equipped kitchen, nice roomy bedrooms and the quiet neighborhood. The beds slept great! We found the lake house to be very clean and perfect for our retreat. Will consider staying again in the future. Spent time in Scottsboro and that was fun also.

Can’t say enough about the great communication from Paula Phillips. She was awesome to work with on this rental.

Great place for large families.

  • 5 of 5

All rooms are on one level so it's really nice for elderly or handicapped renters. We had plenty of room to spread out and owners supplied almost anything you needed, including kayaks, canoes, and boat. Even on rainy days the screened porch made a great place to sit and visit. Loved it.

Whole family enjoyed every minute!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean when we arrived. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The owner had so much for our family to do from canoeing, kayaking, fishing, playing ping pong, pool, poker, cards, xbox, playstation, or just relaxing to read books. This place had it all!
