About JoAnna

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

Update! We are up to 8 grand children and yes, our last daughter graduated from Auburn in 2017! Automatic raise for us. We still love the lake and I love meeting the guest that stay with us.

JoAnna purchased this house in 2012

Why JoAnna chose Guntersville

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!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

JoAnne is very pleasant to deal with. This is the second house we have rented from her and it was just as nice and clean as the first one. Great location and very close to my relatives.

Neat, quiet and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lot of fun with our stay over the Christmas break. The view of the lakefront was absolutely gorgeous!

The house itself was very spacious and comfortable. We spent most of our time in the living room curled up on the comfortable couches and seating provided. We also really appreciated a fully loaded kitchen with almost every utensil you need- to make your own food. There was a shared firepit just outside the house which was a lot of fun to use, and we had a good time making smores.

Overall, we really enjoyed the stay. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a peaceful, affordable lakefront cottage.

The Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The Cottage was was equipped with everything you would need and very clean. It was close to a boat launch and to the state park. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.
