About Susan and T Wilson

A group of sailors purchased the North Alabama Sailing Marina to ensure this beautiful sailing water would be available for many years to sailors throughout the region. My husband and I are part of the owners group. We came to the local area 11 years ago from Honolulu with three children who love the water and needed to be near the water. We sailed in Hawaii and I earned my US Sailing instructor's certificate while there. I am a registered US Coast Guard Captain and avid sailor who likes to race sailboats. Since sailing at Lake Guntersville we have become fast friends with several other sailors who love the area and wanted to ensure the marina was going to be available for the community to use and enjoy...so we bought in in January of 2016.

The Sailors Group (TSG) has eight active family partners and we own 25 sailboats! We all love to sail and enjoy the water. With a labor of love we renovated the 2 bedroom "Cabin" so that others could visit Guntersville and enjoy the same great lake we play on.

Some of the partners are around the marina most of the time and can give you information of where to eat, pick up groceries or when you might be able to hear live music in downtown Guntersville.

Why Susan and T Wilson chose Guntersville Lake

There is nothing like a fresh cup of coffee in the morning looking out over the lake. The best lake access is right out your door...a launch ramp and ample parking are provided and at the end of the day you can walk next door to "Somewhere" and enjoy a meal, something to drink and often live music out on their dock.

What makes this cabin unique

Having a launch ramp on site, trailer parking, and a boat slip are included in your stay.

Perfect cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd trip to Guntersville and let me say, we did not want to leave at all! This cozy little cabin was right on the water, close to so much but far enough away for some peace and relaxation. We loved the open space of the living room and kitchen with the big, open windows to watch the sunrises and sunsets. Being a holiday weekend, we had a lot of people camping out in front of the cabin, but we never heard them and they were all very friendly. Another added bonus was the washer and dryer! Nothing better than going home with clean clothes! Susan and T truly thought of everything for this cabin which was very well kept and clean. We will most certainly be back soon and look forward to staying here again!

Nice

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was nicely decorated & clean. We had plenty of room as it stated it slept 6. The bump in the floor in the hallway was not pleasant & id suggest fixing if possible. The scenery was peaceful & one of the owners that we met was helpful & friendly. Thank you for allowing us to stay here.

Owner's Response: Lori, Sorry for the inconvenience of the bump in the floor and please accept our apologies. The humidity in Alabama has been unusually high, even for Alabama, and we suspect that was the problem. The floor has been repaired, Tropical Storm Irma has passed and the marina and the cabin didn't have any damage. We are looking forward to drier and cooler Fall weather and we hope you will come back and visit us again...this time without any bumps! Thank you for choosing our "Cabin". Susan and T

Great lakeside cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is at the sailing club so it's right on the water. You can walk to somewhere on the lake (restaurant) and they have fantastic crab cakes. The house looks exactly like the pics! Beautifully decorated and everything you need is here. I even packed extra paper towels and toilet paper but no need.... They already had everything! Will definitely stay here again!!!!!

The pefect place to get away and live a calm simple life... if only for a few days.

  • 5 of 5

This place is the perfect place to stay if you want to be on the water and close to EVERYTHING, but NOT in the middle of the craziness that lake life can be. Everyone we met here, from owners to sailors, were friendly and a pleasure to get to know. If there were any issues, the owners fixed them quickly.

The cabin is a little deceiving on the outside and looked rugged. But, once you are inside it is open, spacious and comfortable. It made us think that we could easily live a simpler life.

You have got to stay here... Just try to leave a week or two open for us, because we WILL be back.
