Property description

Whether you are planning a trip down the Natchez Trace Parkway, or a visit to the many sites and events of the Shoals, you can't go wrong with your own private suite surrounded by nature. We have created a peaceful and tranquil environment for the traveler who prefers being in a more natural setting.

Minutes from downtown Florence and the University of North Alabama, you will feel as if you are in a cozy mountain retreat. The studio has it's own separate entrance and private bath. The wood paneled cathedral ceilings accented with wood beams make the room (13x20) feel even larger. A natural stone fireplace with gas logs is the focal point of your room and perfect for a quiet, romantic evening. A queen size wrought iron bed with high thread count cotton sheets will allow a good night's sleep. The studio is decorated with my pottery, handmade in my studio on sight, along with other art work. See a piece of pottery you would like as a memento, just ask if it is for sale. Just a few steps down from your private deck is the outdoor shower and hot tub, available on request.

Keep an eye out for the variety of wildlife. Deer, otter, beaver, herons, ducks, owls and kingfisher are all frequent visitors. If you are lucky you may see for the occasional bald eagle. You will have a hard time believing that you are just a 5 minutes drive from the center of downtown Florence.

The globe cotton mill that stood on this site was burned down during the civil war, however the remnants of two dams and a paddle-wheel are still visible from the banks of the creek.Florence, Alabama is located 2 hours from Nashville, Memphis and Birmingham, a short drive from the Natchez Trace. It is a growing town with several new independent restaurants, as well as national chains. Florence is home to a Frank Lloyd Wright home that is open for tours. Ivy Green, home of Helen Keller is located nearby.

Being home to the legendary Muscle Shoals sound, our area enjoys a rich musical history, with recordings made here by Percy Sledge, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and many more.

Florence was named best arts and design town by Garden and Gun magazine and hosts many arts and music festivals and events throughout the year, including the popular W. C. Handy music festival each July, a Renaissance festival in October and First Fridays each month. Arts Alive is in May and the Helen Keller arts fair is held in nearby Tuscumbia is held every June.

During warm weather you will be able to fish just steps from your creek side suite, or you might enjoy the creek by kayaking, canoeing, tubing, or having your own 'happy hour' next to the water.

We live in the rest of the house and are available as little or as much as you desire.
