This rustic home is reminiscent of old times at the lake. Large great room lives big with kitchen/living room combination in a relaxed setting.

About Gail Kimrey

I grew up spending weekends at Guntersville Lake and have wonderful memories on the lake with my family fishing, boating, swimming and just hanging out. Wanted my children and family to enjoy the same experiences that I had and for us to make many memories for years to come.

Gail Kimrey purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Gail Kimrey chose Guntersville Lake

Deep water(8-9 ft) for swimming and boating was a priority for us as well as being close to the main channel. The house is located close to the water, you feel like you are right by it from the house. You can hear the waves lapping at the sea wall at night, watch herons dip down and catch a fish and see fisherman catch fish after fish right by your dock. It is 45 minutes from our home, so a day trip, weekend trip or all week are all convenient. It is also close to the city of Scottsboro, so that a quick trip to town if you need Walmart or the grocery store doesn't take all day. Easy to find off the highway, but you feel miles away from home.

What makes this cabin unique

From the first time we walked into the cabin, I knew this was the one. We wanted a cabin that everyone could enjoy and not worry messing up but would enable us to sit and relax and enjoy the company of those around us. Everyone comments on how cozy and relaxing it is--they don't want to leave. From the screened in porch, to the stone patio to the large dock, there is a space for everyone to find their spot;.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time and REALLY enjoyed the cabin. Much rest and relaxation - which was just what I (we) needed.



We found some kind of large green/white tree frog - and also ran into a few armadillo's -- I think we saw muskrats - not sure what else it would have been. And we heard coyote across the lake one evening.



The unclaimed baggage center didn't have anything we couldn't live without ! We did go to Cathedral Caverns and the Sauty Cave



THANK YOU!

Great cabin and very nice owners.

  • 4 of 5

The place was everything I expected. I really enjoyed the dock. Our friends were camping at goose pond and it was only a couple miles away. We slept great in the bed and the cabin was very comfortable. The only reason it got 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the steps. Which I didn't mind but I can see it being an issue as we get older. The owners were great. Didn't have a problem but if we did I felt she would be right on it. We will be back.

Perfect for Family & Friends FUN!

  • 5 of 5

So many things to say about this beautiful place. This will be my second time staying here at The KIMREY CABIN! The owner is very nice and very accommodating. You do not need anything when you come except food that you eat. The front screen porch is beautiful at night and day. The sunsets are some of the most beautiful I have seen! We fished from the dock and everyone caught a fish. It's the perfect little getaway that you don't know about! And you almost want to keep it a secret just for you! LOL!

You can watch the kids swim from the house while you prepare food in the kitchen. And it's just convenient all the way around for lake lovers! I'll be back!! Everytime I have been Ms Gail is asking if we need anything? She really has everything you need but a bathing suit! LOVE IT!!!!! Can't wait to go back!!
