About JoAnna

A family of 6 with our last daughter studing at Auburn. Our family has grown to include 6 grand children.

JoAnna purchased this house in 2012

Why JoAnna chose Guntersville Lake

For years we traveled to Guntersville from Madison, Alabama. In 2007 we decided to make the move. We found a house on a hill and moved. We were not able to buy property on the lake at that time. In 2012 found this house and made the decision to rent it at a resonable rate so others traveling to this area could enjoy this beautiful lake. This has given us many opportunities to meet people from all over. I have really enjoyed renting The Cottage and making others feel at home during their visit.

What makes this house unique

I love the outside deck area! You can sit in the sun or the shade of the tree. Often you see ducks, geese, squirrels and chipmonks. This is an older home with an arched hall entry. We have updated the flooring and master bath. It is very comfortable and clean!

Comfortable Lakefront Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This was our first home away rental. We are hoping that this experience didn't spoil us. The cottage is very comfortable. It had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. It's clean and well kept. Thanks JoAnna for a nice rental experience!

Wonderful lake home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented both The Cottage and The Bungalow. The two homes were perfect for us! They were very well kept, stocked with what we needed, and CLEAN! The waterfront location was beautiful and so relaxing! The one thing that would have made it better would have been being able to swim off the dock. However, we knew we wouldn't be able to do that when we rented the homes. That didn't dampen the mood at all! We fished from the dock and played lots of yard games in the huge backyard! We've already started talking abut a return trip!

Great hideaway on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Great little vacation spot! On the lake with a nice dock behind the big beautiful back yard, and a perfect firepit for the kids to roast marshmallows over! Tucked away in a quiet little spot, yet 2-3 miles away from great restaurants and a grocery store. We'll definitely be back!!
