Beautiful and comfortable house at end of street in quiet neighborhood. Beautiful view of the river and quick and easy drive to Sheffield, Muscle shoals and Florence. Clay was the perfect host. Will be staying here again.

Stunning views of the Tennessee River from couch and yard

  • 5 of 5

Clay has a fantastic property and is a gracious host. We thoroughly enjoyed the views from the home and were able to see stars, sunsets and fireworks from the comfort of the back yard. We've been telling everyone we know about this trip and the property. We came for Fame studios but also thoroughly enjoyed Florence and some very good restaurants as well as some hiking near one of the dams. A relaxing trip made extra special by Clay and his historic home.

5 out of 5 for sure.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Muscle Shoals. Clay is a great host but never intrusive. The home is in a perfect place and very comfortable. The views are spectacular and watching the river barges at night is really cool. If you're a fan of music Muscle Shoals should be on your bucket list. Stay away from hotels. This is the place you want to stay!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three nights at the Muscle Shoals Music House and enjoyed it very much! The owner met us on arrival and gave us a tour of the home. He graciously had some food in the refrigerator, so we did not have to find a grocery store upon our late arrival. That is rare for a VRBO and we appreciated it. The beds were comfortable and the bedrooms were good sized. The bathrooms were comfortable and the entire house was very clean. The reclining couch in the living room was a big hit in our group! The view of the Tennessee River was fantastic and after a rainy day we were treated to a beautiful double rainbow. We played golf at the Robert Trent Jones - Muscle Shoals courses and found the house to be a convenient location. We highly recommend this home and its owner!
