About Dana Sparkman

Although i am an army brat that lived many places, I have settled in Blount County, about 35 minutes from the floating cabin location. I am a university professor, and I teach online, which gives me the flexibility to travel, which I love. I graduated from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!), and like everyone else from this state, I LIVE for football season!

Dana Sparkman purchased this cabin in 2013

When we first opened the door, the overwhelming smell of sewage made us take a step back. We braved it and went inside to look around. Few steps in and there was a dead roach in the middle of the floor and by the coach, spiders the size of nickels on the curtains in the bedroom, and when I opened the door to the balcony for air, the entire doorway was webbed and full of bugs. So those spiders had obviously been busy for quite some time. The inside was full of cobwebs and looked as if no one has thoroughly dusted it since the cabin first touched the water. The smell never subsided, even after buying air fresheners to put in every room. Some of the windows were stuck and we were unable to get them open. Only reason we stayed was because it was already paid for (if there was hope of a refund I would've left the second I opened the door) but honestly the experience wasn't worth even half the price of what I paid. I could go on but...I definitely won't be renting another!

Owner's Response: In my welcome letter to my guests, I always ask them to call me immediately if something isn't right, and I'll make it right. I didn't hear from you. How can I fix anything that might be wrong, if I don't hear from you? I apologize that your stay was unacceptable. I will definitely bring it to the attention of the cleaning staff.

Booked Dana's cabin for our 17th anniversary. We enjoyed it immensely and will most definitely be making a return trip. We had all that we needed and loved fishing directly off of the deck! It was beautiful and serene! All I could have wanted it to be! Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin with us!

Very good location but needs some updates.

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was in a great location for restraunts and fishing but needed a good dusting and fresh paint. The smell was bad at times but with a candle it is fine. Tge cabin didn't rock to much other than when boats didn't obey the no wake area. Overall was a good trip.

Wonderful layout! Very Clean and comfortable. Needs some upgrading, especially the deck chairs and it would nice to have a screen door on the bedroom sliding door. We will be back for another stay!
