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!

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Dana's floating cabin for 2 nights. We were so relaxed the entire time. The weather was perfect and we opened the sliding doors as Dana suggested and let a nice little breeze flow through the cabin. We fished off the deck and caught several brim and a couple of bass. It was just so neat to slide the screen door open and cast a line. We saw an eagle as well. We walked to Wintzell's for dinner one night and drove just across the way for dinner at Top of the River one night. We had everything we needed to just relax and thoroughly enjoyed our stay!.

I could live in this cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was a nice and peaceful get away. Besides the odors from the holding tanks, no complaints. The accommodations were adequate comfortable for two. The cabin was clean. To my surprise I brought a cooler with ice per the notes but the mini refrigerator has a very small freezer section that had an ice tray with ice. I really could live here.

Nice Get-a-Way

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was clean and fishing was fun. Only some minor negatives--no soap or shampoo (glad we took our own), no pull string on light in living area so lightening was dim , and water barely got warm in the shower ( kitchen sink and bathroom sink water got hot). First time to stay in a floating cabin and all-in-all we enjoyed our stay

My husband and I were extremely pleased with our accommodations. Everything was clean and welcoming. The air was on when we arrived, so the cabin was cool and inviting. We were amazed at how little we actually felt any motion in the cabin, and, in fact, felt none until this morning when boats were beginning to move around some quite a ways from us. We couldn't have been more pleased and hope to return soon. Thank you so much for having this delightful cabin!
