About Beth Bice

Beth and Vernon Bice live in Huntsville ,Al and have been married 35 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 The Woods of Longleaf

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.

Perfect family get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. The outside space was amazing. Lots of decks, a diving board, charcoal grill, firepit, plenty of seating. It was great. The inside was the most well-stocked place we've ever stayed. It was so spacious and great for lots of kids. Cable and wifi were bonuses! It is way back in a slough so it's very private. The driveway is steep but nothing you can't handle. We really enjoyed this.

Perfect swimming area. Children loved the diving board. Adults loved the many decks. Very peaceful area. Enough room to spread out in the house. Mrs. Bice was very responsive and helpful throughout our stay. Would book again.

Great family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend at Lake Martin. We had 6 adults and 5 kids and fit very comfortably with enough space for each family. We brought a couple kayaks so it was fun to be able to get out on the water a little bit. We also set up a baby pool on the dock for the little kids. It was perfect!
