About jill cattaneo
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!
jill cattaneo purchased this House in 2004
Why jill cattaneo chose Guntersville
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!!
What makes this House unique
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. plus a brand new publix grocery store ,the first of its kind..with a pier you can drive your boat up to, park and shop...

Great family retreat!
Spent a long weekend at Cattscradle in January. It was perfect! Great location, close to restaurants and shopping. First time to Guntersville and will definitely be back. House had everything we needed and we stayed cozy in 20 degree weather. Jill was a gracious host and we plan to revisit in warmer temps!
Our family had a very nice time.
We had a great time with relatives who were able to come visit. Since we were all gathered together we were also able to celebrate Grandpa's birthday. Everyone appreciated the wi-fi and cable tv when the heat index got up to 105 in the afternoon.
A very nice flat property for the kids and elderly to enjoy a vacation.
Catts Cradle: just right!
We spent 4 days at on Lake Lanier at Catts Cradle over Easter weekend. Everything was just right: the accommodations, the weather, the fishing...We especially enjoyed the well stocked kitchen as we cooked all of our meals. Also, enjoyed sunsets on the rooftop terrace above the boathouse. The owner was very friendly and helpful.
