About Cindy Jones

I live in Franklin, Tennessee. I grew up near Lake Guntersville and all of my family still reside in the area.

Cindy Jones purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Cindy Jones chose Alabama

My family and I are excited to share our Pine Island retreat with you. My brother and I have the fondest childhood memories of summers on Lake Guntersville. Our extended family gathered at Lake Guntersville each summer and we developed a love for the lake, waterskiing, fishing , we made memories and deepened our love for one another. We left the lake with sun kissed cheeks, a re-acquaintance with the hatch of the May flies and strong right arms from hand churning ice cream. We have long since watched home movies and reflected fondly on our days at Lake Guntersville As children arrived, we longed for them to have the same Lake Guntersville experiences that we had as children and we began to dream of returning. Finally the dream is realized and our grandchildren are learning to fish off the dock. The Water’s Edge at Pine Island is our family’s refuge from the hectic day to day….our happy place. It is our place to unwind, play, reconnect, laugh over old memories and create new ones. We hope that it will offer the same to you and your family.

What makes this cottage unique

Having the Main House and the guest house makes it easier to accommodate larger groups. On the main level is an open den kitchen and a huge porch that overlooks the lake.

Peaceful, lake views with room to roam and a lot of activities to enjoy

  • 5 of 5

One of the best family vacations we had! Beautiful home, with every amenity and accommodation provided. The kids kept themselves entertained with kayaking, padleboat, corn hole, making smores by the fire. We absolutely had the best time together as a family! Thank you for sharing your beautiful property!

Family Vacation 2017

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place God has blessed you with. We so enjoyed our stay at your house. The space was perfect for our large family. The beds were so comfortable. All the different little areas to sit an chat or take in the lake view, were amazing. This home is very comfortable and peaceful. We enjoyed fishing off the dock, swimming and the island was a big hot with the grandkids. The whole family wants to do this vacation place again. Thank you Cindy for sharing your home with us.

Perfect Family Gathering...

  • 5 of 5

This was literally one of the best mini-vacations we have had. The house was gorgeous, comfortable, and with every amenity you could think of! The dock and boathouse were great for fishing and we cannot wait to book for a week for our next visit!

Thanksgiving 2016 at The Water's Edge

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we had ever rented a place for our entire family to come and spend Thanksgiving together. It was fabulous! The house and guest house were perfect. The boat house was perfect for our bass boat. There was laughter, card games, fishing, cooking and just being together as a family which meant so much to us. We even celebrated two birthdays with cake and candles! What a wonderful time! Thanks Cindy for a great holiday for our family.
