Bama House on Forest Lake

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights along with our friends at the Bama House in November on the way to a wedding. Kim and Marc could not have been more hospitable or cordial. It was a delight visiting them in their home and the breakfast was delish. Thanks , Marc and Kim for an enjoyable two days and we will be back on our next trek through Alabama. War Eagle!

Could not be better!

  • 5 of 5

You will not stay anywhere better in the greater Tuscaloosa area. Great house, great food, great family, great hosts. If you want privacy - you got it. If you want a group dynamic - you got it. Very, very accommodating. We were there on Thanksgiving and felt more at home than at home.

What a Great Place to Stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our sons go to the University of Alabama and we visit them a couple of times of year. Each time prior we'd stay at various hotels and we'd be stuck in a small room that could be anywhere. We were looking for a place where we could really delve into some Southern Hospitality and have a home away from home. We decided to try the Bama B&B and boy are we happy we did. Kim and Mark are so sweet and they have everything thought out and prepared for your stay. What a beautiful home - gorgeous, clean, spacious and the scenery is amazing. We will now make this our first call whenever we plan a visit. The only heads up is as that as stated in their listing - they have a few cats running throughout the house. If you are allergic you better take your antihistamine, but take it, don't miss the splendor of this B&B

So happy we found this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the start, the BAMA B&B family was a delight to work with planning our stay! She was flexible in accommodating an extra night at the very last minute. We felt welcome and confortable for the entire week. My son loved the pool and game room - we always had something to keep entertained. And breakfast was fabulous!!! We miss the biscuits and cocoa syrup - so good!!! The view was gorgeous and very relaxing. Would definitely say here again!!!

About owner/property manager

We built this, our dream house, after losing our other home to a tornado in 2000, and a 2nd home to a fire in 2006. We're both retired school teachers that have embarked on a new career path! We have a 200 year old B&B located just 2 blocks from the stadium, and we manage over 40 game-day rental properties all across town. We love to entertain, and we often host visitors in our home. Some of our former guests include Hurricane Katrina victims, and other visitors from all over the world, including the University of Alabama's Foreign Language Department. Our children are older now, so we decided as a family to try something new - making our home into a special retreat for other families! Roll Tide!

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2002

Why owner/property manager chose Tuscaloosa

We built our home in this lovely location in south Tuscaloosa because of the quiet beauty of the lake, and its close proximity to town. We thought about building on Lake Tuscaloosa, but it's so far away from everything! We also wanted a quiet lake instead of one that sounded like the interstate! Our lake does not allow motor boats, so instead you only hear the sounds of nature all around you! Swimming is not allowed in the lake, but we have a huge pool to enjoy instead!

What makes this house unique

We have a fully stocked lake and the fishing gear to go with it! You can fish from the pier, use the paddle boat, row boat, or one of the kayaks. We also have a great outdoor heated swimming pool, an indoor exercise pool, pool table, air hockey table, 3 spoiled cats, and much more.
