About Bobby or Angela Hendrix
We are just a couple of the many family members that have enjoyed this special home on Shoal Creek. Keeping with the open house feel that we have all always known and loved, we made the decision to let others enjoy it too!
Bobby or Angela Hendrix purchased this House in 1964
Why Bobby or Angela Hendrix chose Florence
The land was first purchased by the family in 1964 and has been 'home' to many. Countless wonderful memories have been made with family and friends through the years.
What makes this House unique
The most unique benefit of our home is most definitely its close proximity to the water. The house is literally inches from the water on flat ground! Another specialty would be the near distance to all restaurants, shopping centers, and many attractions that Florence and The Shoals has to offer! And we must not forget the fish - OH, THE FISH! - Many bass, catfish and others...a/k/a: THE BIG ONE...have been reeled in at the house over the years!
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
A must rent again property
The house and the owners exceeded all of our expectations. The house was stocked with everything we needed, it included a welcome letter explaining the Dos and Don'ts and emergency contact information. We also received a welcome basket with some snacks for every traveler. Both the main house and guest house were emaculant and decorated beautifully. The lay out of both houses were perfect for our family celebration of our dad's 80th birthday. The children spent the majority of their day in the water playing. Kayaking and goofing off, it was so wonderful to hear their joyful laughter. There was super convenient and easy access for the elderly family members to the decks, showers and very few steps so they could also enjoy the lower deck to fish and watch lake activity unfold. The fire pit allowed us to do hot dogs and s'mores for which children and adults really enjoyed. The multiple sitting areas allowed people to escape and commune as desired. The best part of this rental was the continuous availability to communicate with the property owners. They were very gracious hosts to our family and we can never thank them enough!
This is definitely a property we will visit again in the future, we LOVED it.
This is a beautiful property run by great owners!!
The main house and guest house are both beautiful, peaceful homes located on property that isn't hard to reach or remote, but feels as if you are out in the country on the lake. We had 8 guests for a retreat, and everything was provided for us in the way of linens, kitchenware, and anything else we needed. The property is beautifully maintained, and we even enjoyed watching two obviously relaxed fisherman slowly floating by in Shoal Creek for awhile.
We came for a quiet retreat, but I can see how this could be a great water recreation site with grilling and family fun as well. The owners are wonderful and were very kind to us, and all of us look forward to coming back when we can. We all highly recommend this rental property! Come watch the birds fly by, fisherman in the distance floating by slowly, sleep in, swim, go out on the water, and make your meals in the awesome kitchens if you like. If we could give them and the property 10 stars we would!
Loved it and the owners were very accomadating.
Great accommodations. Very homey and welcoming
Amazing View With Amenities Galore
Our vacation at the Gibbons Lake House was perfect. We live in Muscle Shoals but usually travel to Smith Lake to gather with family from Arkansas and Georgia. My Mama and Step-Dad are older (83 and 75)- While we love the clear, clean water at Smith Lake, most of the properties are way above the water with steep steps.
This house was PERFECT! You can't get closer to the water and can pull right up to the front door to unload!
House was very clean, stocked with anything we needed and more. While the fish were not biting that much- we loved sitting on the pier for hours laughing, fishing, and even kayaking! We certainly will plan a trip again.
Angela and Bobby are extremely professional and so very kind. The history of the Gibbons Lake House is special.
OH, almost forgot! Our Arkansas family stayed in the Guest House- So very very nice. We only wished we had a longer stay. Never enough time with family:)
Thank you again for a fabulous stay- We look forward to our next getaway.
Jeff, Carla, and Grace Griffin!
GREAT GREAT GREAT!
Home was very clean and had everything we needed and more. Owners were very hospitable and friendly. We were there for a wedding so we’re not able to spend a lot of time at the home but there was beautiful outdoor space, grill(s) available, tv’s in every room (even one of the bathrooms) and overall a fantastic stay. And pet friendly too 💜🐶Thank you so much Bobby and Angela. We appreciate your hospitality immensley😊
The Perfect Lake Home
Our son & grandson joined my husband and I at this gorgeous home. We were delighted to arrive and find a “goody basket” of wonderful snacks to greet us. The kitchen we used was well stocked. Majority of our time inside was spent in the greatroom where the furniture was so comfortable everyone could stretch out & relax. Angela was excellent to work with and easily accessible to answer all questions. I loved that this home is a ranch, no stairs! So nice to step out to a great view of water and a beautifully manicured yard. Our little dog enjoyed the yard and big shade tree. The men/boys loved the fishing right outside the glass door wall. This home is very well maintained and in a perfect location. We had the best time fishing, kayaking, playing golf and enjoying our time together. Will definitely add this home to our future vac trips.
