About Clay Mize
My career began at the age seven on my grandfather’s farm raising chickens and learning the meaning of a long row to hoe. In the years following, I worked as a furniture assembler, lifeguard, paper boy, waiter, cookie salesman, oil field roustabout, teacher, and talk show host. I have also worked entrepreneurial ventures in insurance and real estate. Now I mostly operate this property, write books and do tennis instruction.
Clay Mize purchased this House in 2005

This worked great for us. Very comfortable house, wonderful views and the kitchen worked great for making a nice dinner. We would definitely recommend staying here.
We had such a nice time at this property. Clay was incredibly accommodating and so kind. We had everything we needed during our stay. Clay has gone out of the way to make sure all of the little things are done correctly. We felt right at home while staying here and know where to bring friends to explore this fun and historic area.
Thank you so much for the kind review. Loved having you and hope you will come back.

Beautiful place with beautiful view
We enjoyed every minute. The place was beautifully decorated and excellently equipped. The view was tremendous! Clay was very helpful. I'd recommend this place to anyone visiting Muscle Shoals, but don't spread the word too far or it will get so popular we can't get back in!
Thank you so much for the kind words. I will always try to squeeze you in if you want to come again.
Muscle Shoals Music House
Great location and view
This is a great location for playing the many golf courses in the area. And when not on the golf course, you have an incredible view of the Tennessee River and the activities taking place on it. We certainly enjoyed our stay.
We loved having you too. I don't think I ever had a guest leave the place so clean. Thank you and please come again.
Muscle Shoals Music House
Great location very nice and very clean
I was surprised the owner was also living there while we were renting, so that was odd for us. They were downstairs and we barely saw him, but it was still a little awkward for us.
Hope you enjoyed your stay with us. I was a little surprised that you were surprised that we live in the downstairs apartment. The following is the first paragraph in the property description.
