About the Property
3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 9
There is a lot to do without even leaving the property. Relax on the large patio of this 1600 square foot waterfront home. Watch the sunset and grill out. Swing in the over sized hammock and take a nap. Watch the wildlife, which may include a Bald Eagle, Osprey or the endangered Whooping Crane. Great Blue Herons and Turtles are almost daily visitors. The turtles and ducks like to sun on the log next to the pier on sunny days.
Field and Stream Magazine voted Guntersville one of the top 10 fishing towns in the country. It is well known for it's Bass fishing and National tournaments. Guests often catch fish right off the bank or pier. The kids will love catching Blue Gills, Catfish or Bream.
Fun in the Sun for Everyone: The Guntersville Getaway Waterfront home is easy to find, just three tenths of a mile from Highway 431. It is located on Buck Island Shores near Gunter's Landing, across from the Guntersville Yacht Club. It offers a fun and inviting place to bring the whole family or it can be a romantic retreat for two. Children are welcome. We have children's books and DVD's. Create memories with your family that will last a lifetime. We have movies and books for grown ups as well.
Your private pier offers deep water year round. Summer and Spring bring boating, swimming, fishing, skiing, or just sunning. If you have had too much sun, shop till you drop in Guntersville for antiques and bargains. Or zip over to the Factory Outlet Stores in nearby Boaz and Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro.
First Class Golf and Family Attractions: It is centrally located to four first class Golf Courses: Gunters Landing, Cherokee Ridge, Robert Trent Jones/Hampton Cove and Goose Pond.
Your whole family can discover Cathedral Caverns, which has the largest cave opening in a public cave in the U.S. It is only 15 minutes away.
Spend a day exploring the Space and Rocket Center and Space Camp, in Huntsville, which attracts visitors from all over the world. Huntsville is less than an hour away.
In the fall and winter curl up next to the fire with a good book from our collection of hard backed books. Take a drive or a boat ride and treat yourselves to the explosion of fall colors.

Year Purchased: 1958
About the owner: My parents, built this home in 1958. My father helped design the house with it's open living and dining area floor plan. I have kept some of the retro look by leaving an original dial telephone, but it has also been updated with granite counter-tops and wireless internet throughout the house. We are constantly improving the house. In 2012 we put matching ceramic tile throughout the whole house and got new bunk beds that have stairs to the top bunk, not a ladder, I live just 3 miles away, also in Guntersville. My husband and I have lived here for 23 years. He is the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Albertville. We are still keeping it in the family. My son Nicholas manages the property for me.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is a jewel of lake front property, because it is not steep and keeps deep water year round. We have kept all the trees, which provides a lot of shade. It is in a cove which protects it. My favorite part about the house is the windows. In almost every room of the house you can look at the serene lake. The retro look has been blended with modern convenience. For example there are modern granite counter tops and antique dressers.
