About Cindy Jones

I live in Nashville, 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 Grant

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.

Perfect family get away

  • 5 of 5

We picked this house for Thanksgiving because our family is spread out over several states and this spot was centrally located and offered a lot of outdoor activities. The owner responed quickly to our inquiries and even called the day before we checked in to see if we needed anything. We found the house to be well equipped for our holiday cooking. The house is beautiful and the view from the living room is stunning. We have rented several houses over the years for our family get togethers and this one has been our favorite.

We've stayed all over the world, and this was one of the best!

I work in a ministry that has had me travel substantially. I never new how beautiful Alabama was. This home made a working vacation seem more like a vacation. One of the best vacation rentals we've ever stayed in.

Labor Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Hailing from Houston and having Harvey hit the week prior to our departure, I really didn't think we'd be able to get out of the city due to flooding. Luckily, with an updated driving route, we were able to brave the roads and get to this little piece of heaven! We were able to have a wonderful long weekend full of family and fun lake activities. Pictures do not do this place justice. Every detail from being impeccably decorated to the fully stocked kitchen, made the trip so memorable. My family was able to take an updated family picture with the lake in the background to capture our new memories. We plan on visiting again as soon as we can. I also want to thank Cindy for being so kind and accommodating, especially since we weren't sure we'd still be able to make the trip. Thank You!

An Truly Amazing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family was escaping a Florida hurricane and ran across this house and gracious owner. We didn't know what to expect as we were fleeing and didn't have time to carefully read. However, when we arrived all our expectations were exceeded! This is a very special place. Not your typical vacation rental. Words really can't express the beautiful oasis this property is.

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!
