Floating Cabin at Lake Guntersville

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin


About the property

This 1-bedroom cabin literally floats on the water - moored to the dock at Spring Creek Marina. Bob along with the current of the water as you relax at this family-friendly cabin. This cabin features a queen-sized bed in the bedroom, and a fold-out sofa in the living area. If you would like to cook for yourself, the kitchen contains a 2-burner stovetop, a microwave oven, a small refrigerator a toaster oven, and a coffee maker. However, you do have access to many area restaurants. In fact, the parking lot for the marina is shared with Wintzell's Oyster House and the Top of the River is located across the highway.

The bathroom has a regular toilet (not a marine one) and there is a shower. The cabin is air conditioned - there is both a central air unit and a window A/C unit in the living area. There is a small porch off the living area, so that you and your guest can look over the lake as the sun sets; you can also walk onto a smaller porch outside the bedroom area, which connects to the dock.

This floating cabin is perfect for anglers who would like to fish the best lake in Alabama and for singles, couples, or small families who want to get away from it all for a few days. The cabin sleeps 2 adults in the bedroom, and either 1 adult or 2 children in the fold-out sofa bed.

**Please note: The marina closes from November 1st through the first week in April. The power and water is turned off, so the cabin cannot be rented during those months.**

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!

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!

My husband and I stayed in Dana's cabin from April 28th-30th (fri-sun) and LOVED everything about it. You can walk to wintzells restaurant to eat, you have a jacks and a diary queen right in the parking lot, no need to really drive if you don't want to. It was so peaceful just sitting on the deck fishing (caught some good fish also) just a super awesome great trip. We are already ready to book again! The view is priceless as well!!

The cabin had an awful smell. It was so bad we could not stay. We went home. It was bad even with the glass doors open. Not at all the cozy, romantic nest my husband and I had in mind.
