About JoAnna

We live in Guntersville and always wanted to be on the lake. So, we bought a place that we would want to live and started renting it out. Three years later we now have 3 properties on the lake and we don't live in any of them! I have enjoyed meeting the different people that renting vacation rentals has brought to me.

JoAnna purchased this cabin in 2014

Why JoAnna chose Guntersville Lake

This property offers deep water for bring a boat back to the property. The use of the boathouse is included in the nightly price. If you aren't a boater (that's me) you will still just enjoy the surroundings and the comfortable accommodations that The Cabin provides.

What makes this cabin unique

Total relaxation! Shop the downtown area that has cute shops and antiques. Restaurants are close by and there are several local options.

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The weather wasn't great, but we were able to relax in a nice place and easily able to fish between rain storms. Very quiet in area. Loved the screened in porch to sit and read while raining.

Calm Cove

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Cabin in the Cove. The cabin was exactly what we were looking for and everything was extremely clean and worked perfectly. This cabin seemed cared for by someone who lives in it rather than someone who rents multiple properties. It is very private and peaceful. The location on the lake is ideal for fishing because the cove is very protected from the wind and the top water bite is great due to the underwater vegetation. Never had a chance to swim or enjoy the deck at the boathouse because the fishing was so good but wish I would have.

Cabin is awesome and as advertised. It is very clean and has everything you need! The porch is set for great afternoon cookouts looking out on the lake. I would rent again without thinking twice. The only few negative things I can say refer to having boats with your vehicles, etc. The driveway is much steeper than the picture appears. We had 2 large trucks each with a 22' boat and an extra van. We were able to get them all in nicely just took some maneuvering and skilled driving. If you are not used to backing boats then i don't suggest this rental. Also the cabin is advertised with two boat stalls for your use. However only one boat stall is available for larger boats as the owners have their personal boat in the other one. There is another open slot, however it is only good for smaller water crafts.

I only put the few negative things to inform anglers with their bass rigs for future use. It is all very doable with a little planning. Everything else I just can't say enough about. My first trip to Lake Guntersville but will not be my last!!!

Oh and one more thing. I got a personal text message from Joanna the night we checked in to make sure everything is OK. Not many rentals will you have this luxury!! Thanks for the awesome experience!

Everything we expected and more!

We have been coming to Lake Guntersville almost every year for the past 9 years, and this was our first time renting from JoAnna. She was everything you hope for in an owner...quick responses, friendly, thorough, trustworthy. We loved past rentals, but with growing kids we needed the extra bedroom and 2nd bathroom. The whole house was clean as could be, which always makes it easier to relax and feel comfortable. What put this rental above and beyond other rentals was that we could use the boathouse! The ability to park our boat in a locked boathouse, and lift it out of the water...that's just priceless to us, considering everything we would go through at past rentals. That convenience alone made the week SO much more relaxing and worry free. My advice if you are bringing a boat, put it in first, then drive the empty trailer to the house. The road is skinny and the driveway steep. We unhooked the trailer, pushed it next to the house and it was 100% out of the way. Plenty of room to pull our truck in and turn it around, no problem. My daughter and I spent many hours on the deck at the boathouse (nice lounge chairs were in the boathouse), meals in the screened porch were so nice, lunch at the table and chairs on the first deck had a beautiful view...writing this is making me homesick for The Cabin! We went to the State Park and hiked a little, walked along the shore, and took in the view from the Lodge. We drove to Albertville, stopping to shop along the way. Also, there is a small park at the entrance to the "neighborhood" that had a basketball court! My daughter was real excited about that. Bottom line, I'm kind of picky, but I would recommend this rental and would like to rent it again in the future!

This was our fourth rental from Joanna, and the second of this property. Everything was exactly as described, and Joanna is a wonderful person to deal with. Hoping our plans work out for another visit.
