About Beth Bice

Beth and Vernon Bice live in Huntsville ,Al and have been married 31 years. They have 3 daughters, Libby, Cappy and Tabitha and a son-in-law Tony.

Beth Bice purchased this house in 1998

Why Beth Bice chose Dadeville

Vernon and Beth both grew up in Auburn, Al and learned to swim, water ski and just enjoy lake life at Lake Martin. Once married and established, they decided they wanted the same thing for their children. They were fortunate enough to find this property in a private secluded slough that was close to their relatives. Many fun summers have been spent in and around this home! All 3 of their daughters went to Auburn so the house not only provided them with a great holiday getaway but a game day house for football weekends as well.

What makes this house unique

Short 35-40 minute drive to the Auburn Campus. Great fishing. Private swimming area. Extensive decks with lake view, hammock and porch swings.


Exceptional! 5/5 -

Wonderful Weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice and spacious. Enough room for everyone to spread out and relax. My family and I enjoyed celebrating our Mom's 70th birthday at the lake. We rented a Pontoon boat for the weekend and the dock held it just fine. There was plenty of games and outdoor space to enjoy with the kids. We would definitely look into renting the place again in the future. BETH, the owner, was very nice and accommodating. The house had everything you could think of to use while on vacation. I really appreciate her and the family letting us enjoy their space for the few days.

The pictures do not do this place justice, A++

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lake house for 5 days and had an amazing time! The house and property is beautiful! There are three different levels so plenty of room to spread out. We had 14 people stay, 4 of which were children. There was plenty of room, there were floats available, the kids had a blast jumping from the diving board, and it was secluded- no neighbors on either side that you could see. Fishing was ok from the dock, we brought a john boat and a paddle boat and did decent fishing from both. Every time I talked to Beth on the phone she was so friendly and made everything so easy. We will definitely be back at some point!

I would recommend bringing or plan on buying near by extra toliet paper, hand soap, laundry detergent, and paper towels. There were plenty of garbage bags, dish detergent, and tons of towels! We couldn't find a broom anywhere to help keep the floor clean so that would be one thing I recommend the owners to have available. Otherwise everything was great and I completely recommend this lake house!

Dunlavy Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Loved the setting and the seclusion. The house had plenty of room for our kids and grandkids to spread out without all of us tripping over each other. The downstairs playroom for the kids was especially nice. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and utensils. A surprise was how comfortable the beds were. Not expected in a rental. The boat lift was a nice bonus too. Made a lot of memories last week. Thank you Bice family for sharing your beautiful home!

Perfect Family Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year vacationing at the Bice's beautiful lake home! Beth is a pleasure to deal with!! The house has plenty of room to spread out or be together. Kids of all ages love the diving board on the dock! Plenty of deck space to enjoy sun and time together! The house decks are a definite bonus to allow you to swing in the shade, relax in the hammock, or have a meal together! The Bice Lake House always leaves us rested and full of precious memories of wonderful time spent with our family! Thanks Beth for sharing your beautiful home!! We will be back again next year!!!

Extemely beautiful setting and house for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My sister-in-law and her husband arrived at the Bice's house while my husband and I were still on the road. She texted to let us know and her message was, "Wow, wow, wow!" That sums up the location and the Bice's home nicely. Plenty of room inside and out for our group that for a few days reached 13. Everything was provided in the house from towels to kitchen utensils. The laundry room was a must for our 7 day stay and included an ice machine. The setting was beautiful. Set back in it's own quiet nook off a nice slough it provided a sense of privacy while being just a short boat ride from the main channel, a marina and a public boat ramp. We came with two boats and there was room for at least one more with deep water right up to the docks. The diving board was awesome for both the actual kids and the grown-up kids. Mrs. Bice was always helpful and accomodating. Just an all around great experience and vacation. Highly recommended for family get togethers.
