Beautifully decorated with furniture and pictures that even families are right at home. Large porch and dock for sunning and boathouse with outside power hookups. 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. The photo boat was there too taking pictures of all the boats and the fish being caught.

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 Guntersville Lake

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.

Boat dock area was not clean. Fish cleaning facility not usable

Owner's Response: Happy You enjoyed the house and all it had to offer. The boat house is an added bonus for the price and in 19 years you are the only negative we ever received. Let me explain the fish cleaning area, etc. My husband got a new pace maker/defibrulator and also had melanoma removed on his face and was not able to clean the area at the boathouse. It has been since taken care of and sorry it was a problem for your stay. Most of our fishermen favor catch and release program so they aren't cleaning fish there either. Should you return hopefully all will be 100% to your liking. Thanks for trying us out!

Beautiful views and great fishing!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came as a birthday trip for my son and could not have been more pleased. The house was clean and super cute with comfortable beds. The owners are next door and willing to answer any questions. They even gave some fishing tips. I enjoyed the peaceful location and will certainly come back.
