Wonderful stay in an adorable den!

  • 5 of 5

I spent almost a month in Tuscaloosa at the Bama Bear Den. The house is tucked away in a residential neighborhood that was about a mile from Target and better yet Fresh Market.

The house is charmingly decorated (pretty sure the owner is an interior decorator).

There were more than enough nice fluffy towels, an excellent bed and a well outfitted small kitchen.

The unit was clean, well cared for and I had a lovely time. Wifi was excellent.

I will be back.

All you really need to bring here are your clothes

We stayed at Bama Bear Den for the month of May while my husband was working in Tuscaloosa. What a great place, Linda was an awesome host and has thought of everything you could need while visiting. The surrounding neighborhood is quite lovely and I felt very safe there, as I was by myself during the days. The place is clean and stays pretty cool even with just a window unit because it is secluded under the trees. The water feature in the yard is very peaceful and makes the porch sitting even more inviting. You can tell they worked hard on setting that up. If you are a football fan you will love this place, it is beautifully decorated in true Crimson Tide style.

The dog and I found plenty to do. If you are in town for anything beyond a ball game weekend, you should check out Hurricane Creek Park about ten minutes away. We also had a great time on the weekends going to Lake Lurleen, and the Lock parks on Holt Lake. The area really is beautiful with rolling hills, river, lakes, bicycle trails, and plenty of other things to do if you aren't there for college or sports. Close to shopping also. I also found my new favorite thrift store just a few miles away.
