About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Born and raised in Tuscaloosa, I now live in SoCal, 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! 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 rave reviews.

Why the Owner Chose Northport, AL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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!
