About the Property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 9

Relax in your own private, waterfront home. Complete rennovation in 2017. The Guntersville Getaway is nestled in a small cove on scenic Lake Guntersville, which has 949 miles of winding shoreline.

There is a lot to do without even leaving the property. Relax on the large patio of this 1900 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, Coots and Turtles are almost daily visitors. The turtles and ducks like to sun on the log in front of the house.

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, it is less than 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 and pets sre considered. 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.

The Boathouse, built in 2017 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 20 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 and paperbacked books. Take a drive or a boat ride and treat yourselves to the explosion of fall colors.

What's new? Almost everything!!! We added a 300 square feet master bedroom. the bathrooms were transformed into elegant, luxury bathrooms. New rock and an amazing mantle piece are the focal point of the living room; that is if you can tear yourself away from the fabulous view of Lake Guntersville. We have a beautiful new flagstone walkways. new landscaping, and larger driveway. We replaced the sliding glass doors in each bedroom that lead to the patio. We painted the living area paneling a light gray color, which brightened the space. We have painted the interior and much of the exterior. It was time to replace the boathouse. Now guests have their own slip with lift, chest freezer and fish cleaning station.

Owner info

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 some of the original fixtures, but it has also been completely updated the kitchen, laundry room, both bathrooms and added a 300 sqare foot master bedroom. I live just 3 miles away, also in Guntersville. My husband and I have lived here since 1990. 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. It has shady and sunny area of this one acre property that provides privacy. It is in a cove. 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.
