About Greg Frey

I am retired and enjoy deer hunting and renting my lake home and my beautiful rustic cabin in nearby Collinwood TN .

Greg Frey purchased this house in 1984

Why Greg Frey chose Alabama

This house is only 10 minutes from down town Florence and just off hwy 43 in Killen Ala.There is a large Foodland and McDonalds only a couple minuties away also Pizza hut and Sub Way in Shopping Center. I do a lot of referrals and repeat guests ,which get a 10% discount!I will allow small family gatherings but there is not a lot of parking for large weddings.This is the best family rental on Wilson Lake,and I guarantee the house will be clean and as advertised!

What makes this house unique

We have a separate 20x20 cedar hot tub room use year round, with a beautiful cedar wrap around bar and 50 inch led flat screen T V perfect for entertaining , there is also small refrigerator in the room.Out doors we have a large smoker grill and gas grill and indoors there is a one of a kind charcoal bar-B-Q grill,you can grill indoors rain or shine on in winter time when its freezing outside!The ceiling in the upstairs are,17 feet tall and gives you that open feeling, lake effect!There are double decks on the house and the lower decks are covered so no problem when it rains.

There are two glass top tables and plenty of Amish made cedar glider chairs to enjoy your time looking at the wonderful view of Shoals Creek,where you may see an Eagle or Osprey fly by or just land in the trees.This is a special place and I know you will enjoy it like I have since 1984.Last the boathouse has two electric lifts so bring your boat or wave runners and have a blast!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The perfect place to stay for a week of fun with your family.

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression was amazing. Mr Greg was friendly, organized, and accommodating. We had waverunners and he put in two lifts for them. The kitchen is a wonderful working kitchen with everything you need for cooking instead of eating out. Beds we soft and comfortable as well as spacious without clutter and plenty of room for your things. Everything was clean. We can't say enough about how awesome this house is. A perfect vacation.

Stunning home, great location, attentive host! Fantastic overall experience!

  • 5 of 5

Having rented from VRBO on quite a few occasions, I have learned not to get too optimistic after a few disappointments. This home in Killen AL more than lived up to its claim. There were absolutely no disappointments during our week there. First I will mention the house - this home is large, modern and very well taken care of. It sits in a very nice quiet neighborhood. You feel as if you are away from the city with just you and the lake -but stores and restaurants are closer than you would think. Decks galore, large kitchen and dining room, comfortable beds, everything was clean and functional! Nice master garden bathroom. Good TV and WIFI reception, well stocked with kitchen gadgets , cleaning supplies and spices. For the kids ( and adults, too!) there is a hot tub ( the biggest one I have ever seen) air hockey and a pool table. Everything worked just fine and all necessary components to play the games were there. Down at the large two level dock, there are kayaks ( included in the rental), chairs, tables, diving board and shade if desired. The previous renters had possible broken the shower faucet. I contacted Greg and he was out the very next morning and replaced it. He is very pleasant and cares about his guests having a great experience. He cares about the home and it shows. I do not have one negative thing to say about our experience. Our family of four have all voted to come back. There is no need to look for any other homes in this area. We hit the jackpot! Thanks Greg for the experience, it was a memorable one! You have a fantastic home, it was hard to leave!

Awesome, awesome, awesome! Our family ranges from 8 years old to 72 years old and it was perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

Check in was very convenient. We arrived to a very clean and well kept property. House was very spacious. The pictures do not do it justice. This is definitely a home away from home. The owner has the house stocked very well with everything and anything you could possibly need. There was even 2 air mattresses provided. There was also plenty of towels, trash bags, soap, toiletries, etc. The kids loved the hot tub, pool table, air hockey table, and kayaks. The dock is very spacious and perfect for hanging out. Overall, this house is awesome. I have stayed at many Vrbo properties and I have NEVER left a review. This owner has gone above and beyond to ensure that this property is top notch. I can't say enough good things about it. My family ranges from 8 years old to 72 years old and everyone was impressed by this property. It is also conveniently located (only about 1 mile to Foodland and Dollar General and 5 miles to Wal-Mart). Also, the neighbors are very friendly. She saw our teenagers in the kayaks and offered to let them borrow her paddle board, which they loved. We will definitely stay at this property again.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six was thoroughly impressed with all of the amenities that this house had to offer. The hot tub, pool table, and air hockey table were highlights of the trip as were the over 90(!) fish that we caught off the dock in three days of fishing. Unfortunately, the weather was too chilly for us to enjoy the kayaks but we plan to return and make use of those. The home had everything we needed and the owner was very responsive to any of our questions. There were plenty of towels, dishes and cookware. The home has great Wi-Fi service, television service and a variety of radio and speaker options. The decks were amazing and have a ton of seating. The next time we come we plan to invite our parents to come with us. The driveway is steep, but we grew to appreciate the exercise that we got going up and down from the dock to the house. The upper level of the dock offers great view of the sunset over the water. We can't wait to go back and were very sad to leave today! Thanks Mr. Frey
