Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My family moved here 19 years ago from California, we wanted a quieter life style, we chose Guntersville for the beauty of the lakes and mountains. i was house hunting with my sister and her husband for a home for them, we found our lake home but in extreme poor condition, too much work for a move in ready home. I instantly fell in love with the location and the yard, i knew the home would be a project, the property looked like a park on the water, so different from the other surrounding lots, so at that point the idea of a vacation rental came to be, cattscradle comes from the first part of our last name and cradle is self explanatory!

Why the Owner Chose Guntersville, AL, USA:
I instantly loved the property location and the park like yard, flat and family friendly, so many of the lake properties have steep slopes and driveways, this lot is flat and very enjoyable for all activities! The location is just a few minutes from our own home, which makes it very easy for me to meet and open the property myself, or for those who would like to stop by before renting to see if the home will work for their stay, I enjoy meeting the visitors, we have been blessed with wonderful renters, many whom have made this an annual vacation spot!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The homes location is central to many enjoyable ammenities, my favorite are the blacktop walking trails along the waters edge,10 minutes away, if that. also the tennis courts at this location, the recreation center with the wonderful lap pool, kids pool, and large swimming pool with curved slides make a nice change from the lake for the kids or toddlers.Guntersville state park is about 15 minutes drive, also super walmart, and other stores..located in the city limits.
