The master bedroom and guest room feature French Doors that open onto the large patio where you can enjoy your morning coffee or an afternoon chat while lounging on a chaise. All bedrooms face Lake Wheeler, which is one of the premiere fishing lakes in the United States and host to many national fishing tournaments.

One of a kind lake home!
Fantastic home with awesome main channel lake view of the Tennessee River!
Great porch area and back yard. Excellent dock and dock house. Take your boat and have some fun!!!
This is a unique VRBO on Lake Wheeler , TN !
ANOTHER FABULOUS STAY AT BAMA HOUSE !!!!!
This is our second stay at the Bama House and it was once again PERFECT. Best rental on the Tennessee River.
House was spotless and is full of amenities. We used the gas grill to cook steaks and enjoyed cocktails on the boat dock. It was a full moon and it glistened on the water. Beautiful !!!!!
So happy that your second visit was as wonderful as the first. Please keep us in mind for any future visits and we will be sure to order a full moon again for you! There is nothing like it when it leaves a trail on the water that lights up the entire river!
We Love the Lake!
We absolutely loved Bamma House! Every room lakeside was light, and had awesome views of the lake. The beds were comfy and we had everything we needed. We spent most of our time outside on the patio and in the water. The girls played badminton and made jewelry. At night we sat around the fire talking and listening to music. The weather was perfect, with lots of lake breezes. We especially loved Buddy, the dog next door. One day, two labs (black and yellow) came and swam with the girls all morning. They fetched sticks and swam all around the girls, but never touched them. Our stay was so relaxing! We felt blessed to have this sister, cousin, bonding time. Thanks, Elaine & Tom
Great place for families and kids - so happy that your vacation was a joy! Please come back again!
Comfortable, beautifully decorated. Owner was very welcoming, checking to see that we had arrived safely and if we had everything we needed.
Will visit again in future if possible.
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We invite you to come back again soon.
Awesome house, great location, rental experience was amazing, we will definitely be back!
We had a great experience at BamaHouse. The house had everything we needed and the store was very close for groceries. The dock was great for fishing, great area to swim and float also. The lake views were amazing. We can't wait to go back!
So happy you enjoyed our Happy Place.. !! Please come back soon - it was our pleasure to host you and your family!
Very Comfortable & Well Stocked Home
My parents, son and I stayed at this lake-front home for a week and we loved every minute of it. The house was spacious and comfortable. The description said it was well-stocked but we have stayed at other rentals that said the same thing, so we dropped off our bags and headed out to Walmart to buy groceries for the week. When we were putting the groceries away, we were amazed at how much was already there. Coffee and filters, tea, sugar, all kinds of spices and condiments. The kitchen had plenty of glasses, dishes, utensils, pots and pans. It was a fully-functioning kitchen, not the usual rental kitchen. There was also shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the showers and plenty of towels. There was also plenty of hot water for the showers and good water pressure.
The view when you walk in is amazing. Just incredible. We spent a lot of time down at the water watching the minnows and fish and turtles swimming around. It was so relaxing and peaceful. There was not too much boat traffic, even though it was the middle of summer and a beautiful week, weather wise.
The house was very quiet, no street noise. We absolutely loved it there and are already talking about going back.
It is our pleasure to host you and your family - and your comments warm my heart. We too have stayed in many rentals and it was our goal not to have our guests come to a "RENTAL" but to our home as our guests. I am so happy it made your vacation easier and you enjoyed your stay. Please come back!
