Second time here and not the last!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property with an amazing view of Lake Tuscaloosa. The owner is very easy to work with and we will definitely stay here again. It has five very large bedrooms to accommodate 10 or more very comfortably. Great space throughout the home from the huge kitchen to the enormous great room all with views of the water. Plenty of parking for several vehicles and a boat ramp just down the street should you bring your boat. There is a very nice dock on the property shoreline if you don't mind a few steps.

This is a clean, very well-maintained property and you will not be disappointed. Clothing and food is all you need to bring as this property is nicely stocked with all the comforts of home. Give it a try. Again, you won't be disappointed!

Perfect lake house for Alabama football weekends

  • 5 of 5

The property was even better than advertised. Lots of room for a large group with all of the amenities that you would ask for at the lake. The dock is easy for using your own boat. We would highly recommend and will book again.

lovely lake view

  • 4 of 5

It was the location of a family reunion and everyone had a great time. The kids especially enjoyed swimming in the lake. The only downside is that the house is considerably above the lake level and the stairs are quite steep (no problem for the youngsters but us old gezzers was another story). Luckily there is a deck about half way up to stop and take a break.

A really great place!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location on the water with upper deck as shown in picture, and floating dock down the stairs to the water. Large porch with bistro lights and grill with wonderful view of the water. Lots of seating in large living room, reclining couches, pool table in adjacent room. View of the water from every window on the back side of the house. All but one bedroom have ensuite bathroom, plenty of beds and spacious bedrooms. Not all crammed in so they can claim "sleeps 15". The house actually would, and very comfortably. Grocery store just a 15 min drive, and we rented a pontoon boat from Smith Marina, about 10 minutes away. The house has a perfect dock for tying up. There are noodles and a large blow up float to enjoy on the water.

My only complaint is that the info on the Home Away site is over a year old! I used the site and the "my trips" link to get the check in info, lockbox code and wifi password and it was all from the previous owner. When I called the contact number, it was also the previous owner who sold the property a year ago! Please update the online info. The owner had sent me all the correct info in the messaging portion of the Home Away site, but I did not see it I used the links. Our check in was not smooth, but the previous owner was very helpful in giving me Gordon's phone number. And the rest of the trip was great. Also, I believe the neighbors are on the alert....some friends stopped by and we had a large group enjoying the dock and the water on a hot Saturday afternoon, and I got a text from the owner that a neighbor had contacted him . The neighbor said that there were a bunch of students on the dock, and they were concerned.....about what? We were swimming and boating and having a good time not being loud or rowdy....a bunch of us are 50+! We were accused of having a party.....

Overall it was wonderful and we would like to satay again!

About Gordon Bates

I am an Alabama native, lifelong fan of Tuscaloosa and avid lover of life on the Lake. My family and I often enjoy time at this property and on Lake Tuscaloosa. There is nothing like watching the sunset from the deck or though the expanse of windows or the stillness of the water in the morning.

Gordon Bates purchased this house in 2016
