4 Bedroom. 2 Bath. Sleeps 7-9
Our house is clean, cozy, comfortable and is filled with quirky, upcycled and repurposed furnishings (except of course for the 'new appliances' and 'new bedding'). We wanted a vacation home that was 'FUN' and something that is different from your usual everyday schedule. Many items in the house are repurposed or handcrafted. Our dining table is actually a solid wood door rescued from a torn down girls dorm at a local community college. My very talented husband and co-DIYer, Rickey, built the table and I painted. The dining bench was crafted by him and I re-vamped the chairs. The 'sleeping porch' is actually enclosed and consists of 3 twin beds with a view of the lake and is stocked with many board games, card games and a bubble-gum machine, a great place for kids to hang out. The kitchen is fully equipped and ready to prepare a quick meal if you decide to eat in. The large den has plenty of seating for tv or for playing games with the family. Master bedroom and bath has some antique furnishing along with a 'vintage' barn door resurrected into a headboard and a collection of old alarm clocks (all set on 5:00 of course). The second bedroom has shabby chic furnishings with old window shutters transformed into a headboard. The hall is lined with a collection of 'rock and roll' albums and one wall of 45 speed records... that will bring back memories of fun days past. If you would love to RELAX and UNPLUG for a couple of days or for the week, please make plans to stay and MAKE SOME MEMORIES.

About Stanice Gray
My husband and I have always loved being on the lake. We are currently working now and look forward to be able to retire to the lake. We have a blended family of 4 children. One daughter/son-n-law, two grandboys, two sons living with us and one son waiting on us in heaven. We all spend as much time as we can at the lake in the summer and even during the winter months it is still nice to come and 'unplug' for a while. The grandboys love to come and have a 'battleship game' tournament, throw rocks and fish while they are here.
Stanice Gray purchased this House in 2012
Why Stanice Gray chose Marshall County
Our dream was to one day buy a vacation home on the lake and after several years of looking and looking, we finally found the perfect vacation home for our family. Our dream came true. It is only 45 minutes from our home now. So it is close enough to stay the weekend and be back to work by Monday. We love having our family and friends to come and enjoy it with us. We ARE making lots of priceless memories each and every time we are here. Our children bring their kids and friends to the lake house, which we LOVE! We have large family cookouts, get togethers and even community picnics. Now we would like to shall all the fun and excitement we have experienced.
What makes this House unique
We decided with this vacation home first and foremost would be a 'fun' place to stay and it would be comfortable! Our house is filled with lots of up-cycled, repurposed, resurrected and handcrafted items. We didn't want anything from big box stores, that's what makes our house unique!

We had a very nice time
Very charming cabin enjoyed it very much.
The owners made us feel welcome by putting a little personalized note on the door as we walked in. The lake house was beautiful. We loved it because it had so much character to it and loved the 2 firepits. We had a wonderful time. Thanks Stanice. We will be back!
We are so happy that you two had a relaxing weekend and enjoyed the lake house. You know that you are welcome back anytime. Thank you!
We had a wonderful time!
Couldn't have stayed at a better place!!!
Without hesitation I would like to say this place was perfect!!! There were 5 of us in our group and we came down for a weekend fishing trip. The house was absolutely perfect for what we needed. Stanice allowed us to use the garage for our boats to stay in out of the rain with plenty of power hook-ups for charging our gear. The sleeping arrangements were great with plenty of room. And the view of the lake from the back porch was absolutely gorgeous. The lake was a stones throw away and was great for just relaxing and catching up with friends. We would most definitely recommend this rental for any group visiting Lake Guntersville..
Big Thanks to Stanice for allowing us to stay at this great rental property!!!!!!!
The place was great. Had a ball with the family.
It felt like home. Back yard and fire was awesome. We caught over 200 fish. Enjoyed top of the river and the whole area is georgeous this time of year.
The only issue is a small one. The head board on the master bed has some sharp nails sticking out. I love the rustic decor.
Wow, that is a lot of fish! Top of the River is a great place to eat. Thanks for letting me know about the nail, that issue has been taken care of. Come back again!
Great get away
Great place to stay. Everything you need.
Lake Guntersville is known for its unbelievable bass fishing and the Bass Masters Tournament in Feb.2014. Fishermen love the area and Ladies love the shopping. With the world famous Unclaimed Baggage 10 minutes away and many antique/junktique shops close at hand. Wal-Mart only 13 minutes away in Scottsboro. Guntersville or Scottsboro, lots of fantastic restaurants. Lake Guntersville State Park only 35 minutes away, offering restaurant, golfing, hiking trails and wildlife. But if you are looking for some family time or just some time to relax and unwind then this is your vacation destination. Two words that best describe our lake house is unique and comfortable.
