New VRBO listing! This lovely 5 bedroom family home is waterfront at the end of a beautiful slough which opens to one of the largest areas of Lake Tuscaloosa. Bring your water toys and invite your friends and family for a wonderful lake vacation! Smith Marina also rents boats, but you do need to reserve early.
Private boat dock with easy access to the large body of water right at the end of the slough. The slough is also a popular swimming area on the week-ends for the homeowners and guests who live and vacation there.
The huge covered party deck overlooks the serene views and invites lingering over dinner with the outdoor speakers, paddle fans, and chirping crickets. There is a charcoal smoker grill on the lower patio.
Available for football week-ends, too. Great accommodations for you and your friends to gather after enjoying the Bama games or other sporting events. Or plan a family vacation at the lake and just enjoy the easy living!
Main level has 4 bedrooms with queen beds. The walk-out basement has another queen bedroom and bath plus a game room with pool table, game table, and TV area. Game room opens to large yard, covered patio, and lake views through french doors and bedroom windows.
We have a small boat launch on the property for jet skis and small boats, and a nice pier for your own boat. There is also a neighborhood launch nearby for your use.
Wonderful restaurants are also nearby if you get tired of cooking out! Bama parents love to stay when they come to visit their student, and there's room for extended family to come, too!
Sorry, we are not allowing pets at this time---newly redecorated and remodeled. This is our own vacation home which we share with others while we can't be there. Check out the video to tour the home.

Born and raised in Tuscaloosa, I now live on the California Central Coast, but have lots of family in Tuscaloosa. So this is our personal vacation home, which we love. When we can't be there, we enjoy sharing it with other families who love their family time together, like we do! All of my family graduated from the University of Alabama, so of course we love Game Days on campus! Football, graduation, and holiday weekends book up quickly. This is a brand new VRBO listing, but we previously used another booking service, and always had great reviews, and get repeat guests each year.
Bonnie purchased this House in 2007
Why Bonnie chose Lake Tuscaloosa
We love how you walk in, look out at the lake, and feel all your stress leave. Everyone says they sleep very well at the Lake House. The covered deck off of the dining room is a popular hang out at night to talk, and enjoy the sounds of the lake. We chose this location because you look down the slough, and there is always activity there with kids in the water, but no fast boats going by.
What makes this House unique
A great open concept floor plan that works well for family get togethers. A very long driveway so everyone can park. Just 15-20 minutes from campus, and great restaurants, and less than 10 minutes from a Winn-Dixie. Plenty of room to spread out, or be together!

Beautiful comfort in a quiet setting
This house was perfect for our family to be together and celebrate our daughters graduation. There is plenty of room, comfortable open spaces and a nice view of the lake. The brand new appliances and electric grill made it easy to cook our favorite meals at the house instead of fighting crowds in town. The owners and managers were great to work with before and during our stay. I recommend giving this lovely home a try when coming to Tuscaloosa and I would definitely stay here again!
The house was filthy...unbelievable. The refrigerator was full of old stuff, the house smelled like mildew, the desk were covered with pollen 1/4" thick, leaves...the garage was a mess.
Had to cancel a visit with relatives I haven't seen in years after a 12 hour drive.
Owner is supposed to return money...she could have cared less about my dilemma, she was worried about a storm at home and her horses..
Suggested I find a hotel...again unbelievable
I broke my rule of accepting last minute bookings, and after they arrived I decided to cancel them due to seeing they were looking to do a scam. Of course they got mad because I told them to leave. I would rather give them a full refund than let them stay a single night in our home.
My housekeeper has been the same one for a long time, and specializes in VRBO housekeeping. The house was 100% clean.
These guys did NOT stay in our home, because I canceled them after they arrived. I hated to do that, and this is the first time in 12+ years it's happened.
I preferred to offer them a full refund in order to get them out of our home!
I guess one nightmare guest in 12+ years is not bad, but I will always listen to my gut in the future!!
Great place for our 10 person group! Beautiful setting and plenty of room!
Typically we stay in hotels for the game day weekend. It was so nice to have a place to hang out when the game wasnt going on! Would stay again!
We’re so glad you had a fun weekend and welcome you back anytime!
Was exactly as described and my family really enjoyed our time. Roll Tide!
We’re so glad you had fun, and welcome you back anytime!
Great property. Access to lake out back door. Well kept. Perfect for large groups. Very responsive o
Beautiful property. Great for BAMA ball games or lake getaway. Quiet and feels secluded. This is our second time staying here and we will do it again.
We're so glad you had a good time, and enjoyed your Bama game getaway! You're always welcome to come again ! RTR!
Other than Lake Tuscaloosa itself, the University of Alabama is the big attraction. Explore the gorgeous campus, tailgate at a game, or watch the numerous sporting events, concerts, etc..
