Owner info

Year Purchased: 1948

About the owner: We are a family of eleven. We have nine children ranging in ages 15 to 18 months. We love the outdoors and we love this home. We live on the property just up the hill. My husband's mother and her husband also live on the property. This home was originally purchased by my husband's father. Over the years many families, including our own enjoyed this sweet spot to rest. For the first time, our families are opening this home to the public to enjoy. We hope you will enjoy our hospitality.

Why the Owner Chose Tuscaloosa, AL, USA:
My husband's father obtained this piece of property in the 40's. People criticized his purchase due to the distance from 'town' and the rough terrain. He proved them wrong and has now left his wife, sons and grandchildren a beautiful piece of property that we wish to share with your family.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
The home has the original tongue in groove pine paneling in the main living area, kitchen, and bunk room. While there aren't many 'rooms' there is plenty of room. You can often find deer grazing in the front yard, as you can hear the frogs and cicadas lull you to rest each night.
