About 1 acre of private property to enjoy the serenity of the scenery. Great fishing right off the dock. No smoking inside and no pets inside. Pets can be kept in kennels on the porch but not inside at any time. Bassmaster Classic 2014 runner up fisherman fished 40 yards from the house and caught 32 lbs of fish. Next day everyone followed him to fish right in front of the house and were catching lots of fish. Have posted a picture of all the boats out front.

About Jack or Phyllis Kirby

Grew up in Scottsboro and lived here all my life. Retired from Insurance business after 45 years and now enjoy fishing, traveling and listening to the wife's instructions. Fished this area so I know where all the honey holes are and would be happy to share a few with you. Member of the Lions Club and Wife is a Jackson County Chamber of Commerce Highland Ambassador so she can tell you a thing or two also.

Jack or Phyllis Kirby purchased this house in 1999

Why Jack or Phyllis Kirby chose Scottsboro

Bought this property because it sits right next to our house and started out as a house for the kids but decided to completely gut it and remodel it and make a vacation rental and guest house. Wife and I like to remodel and did the work ourselves. Had the outside done to match ours.

What makes this house unique

Just perfect opportunity to obtain property that adjourned ours and a place our kids could come and bring friends. Decided to furnish it the way we would want it to look if we stayed there so it is very nicely done and quite welcoming.

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

A great place to get away from it all. The house is really nice. Has everything you need. We loved the convenience of having the boat right there in the boathouse without having to put it in the water and take it out everyday. If you need anything, the owners are right there to help you. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a time to get way and have a time of relaxing and renewing. Also the fishing is wonderful!

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having you as our guests for your fishing trip. So happy you found our accommodations to your liking and everything that you needed. April is always a good month for fishing around this area and glad you had a good catch. It is so nice having the boathouse and a launching ramp just down the road makes it so convenient. Look forward to your next trip.

Very relaxing place

  • 5 of 5

We spend a few days in area relaxing by doing alittle fishing ( which was so but that was ok) and doing some sight seeing . DeSoto Fall and Little River Canyon are close by and even close enough to go over to Chattanooga for the day . Fishing cabin was very nice and the property owners couldn't be any nicer. Would definitely consider another stay there .

Owner's Response: We enjoyed meeting you and sorry you had to leave early. Maybe next time will work out and we will enjoy having you stay with us again. Lots to do close around if fishing is not your things. Can go to Gadsden, Huntsville or Chattanooga in 1 hour. Enjoy your Christmas!
