About the property

Located mid-lake at the Waterfront boat ramp between Guntersville and Scottsboro

You'll enter the property through a driveway right next to the cabin and park up to 2 vehicles or boats under the lighted carport that has power to charge your batteries after a long day of fishing. The covered patio is a great place to take in beautiful lake and mountain views.

If you walk up to the covered patio after dark, the area will be lit by an overhead motion light. You'll enter the cabin through a full kitchen that includes everything necessary to make memorable meals. Your Kitchen includes a full sized refrigerator and stove as well as a microwave, coffee maker and filters, toaster. Cookware, dishes and flatware are also included.

You'll then make your way into the great room which has comfortable seating for 4 as well as a wall mounted big screen television powered by DirecTV.

To the right is your master bedroom which includes a queen bed and twin bed as well as the first or 2 full bathrooms. To the left is the second bedroom which has 2 twin beds and it's own full bath. You'll find the cleanest bedding and freshest towels anywhere!

Enjoy strong unlimited free WIFI reception both inside and outside of the cabin. If you travel with pets just ask, in most cases we're happy to have them as guests too. Our 2 acre property offers plenty of additional parking and easy access through 3 different driveways.

The D&E Landing difference includes:

About David & Edna

D & E Landing, LLC is named after us, David and Edna. The name came to Edna literally as we were signing the documents to purchase the property.

Edna's a native Alabamian who grew up in Phenix City. David grew up outside of Boston but found his way to Alabama in the middle 80's. We fell in love with Northeast Alabama after spending 4 years outside of Gadsden before moving to Memphis, TN for 20 years.

Lake Guntersville called to us in the spring of 2013 and we decided it was time to go home permanently! We are, like many couples in Alabama, a house divided. Edna's the Alabama football fan and David'd the Auburn fan. Iron bowl Saturdays are always interesting around our house!

David hunts and fishes the area and is always happy to help with any information you need. Edna's a shopper, and will guide you to every place within 60 miles to get a bargain on almost anything! Between us we've got you covered.

We both love to meet people, make new friends and serve our guests. We believe in delivering the maximum value for your dollar and will do whatever it takes to ensure you have a fantastic time at Lake Guntersville and in the Northeast Alabama area!

Please don't hesitate to let us know if you need anything at all - we're here to help!

David & Edna purchased this cabin in 2013

Why David & Edna chose Marshall County

Hilltop Hideaway is located mid-lake on Highway 79 making it an easy drive to most of the boat ramps on the lake. If you're not a fisherman, you'll only have a short drive to Guntersville, Scottsboro or Huntsville. There you'll find plenty of activities to choose from including:

- Fantastic shopping in all these locations (just ask Edna)

- Cathedral Caverns

- Hiking at the State Park

- Space and Rocket Center

- Lake City Amusement Park (opening April 2016)

- Many golfing opportunities including 2 Robert Trent Jones Trail courses

What makes this cabin unique

Our property sits on 2 beautiful acres with great views of the lake and surrounding mountains.

There are 4 different driveways making it very easy to enter, exit and move around if you have a boat or trailer. Every cabin has covered parking for at least 2 boats/vehicles with power to charge you batteries and there's no need to unhook. We have plenty of additional parking with power available at every cabin as well.

You will not find cleaner lodging anywhere at the lake as Edna and David take care of everything at the property personally. We live in Guntersville and are always available should you need anything at all!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I REALLY enjoyed our stay. The cabin was very clean, quiet, and cozy. We pulled our boat did some fishing and cooked it on the grill at the cabin.

The cabin is pet friendly. We didn't meet Edna but had the pleasure of meeting David, he was very kind and it felt like we were staying with family.

We will tell all of our friends and will return soon. Thanks David and Edna, we love your cabins!

Simply hard to beat this value

  • 5 of 5

My fishing partner and I stayed 11/11-11/14/2015 and could not have been more pleased with the very clean accommodations this location offered. Great kitchen and a coffee pot w/ filters to boot. 2 separate rooms apart, each with excellent showers & bathroom. Comfy couch and TV for the living room. The boat shed was perfect and secure. Dave was very courteous and helpful even with our late evening arrival. Great location puts you seconds from waterfront ( ramp, gas, breakfast,lunch, and fishing supplies ) and minutes away for access to other areas of the lake. This was more economical and much more pleasant than any hotel stay. I am well traveled and one would be hard pressed to find a better value for a fishing trip. We will definitely call on Dave and Edna to hook us up on our next trip to the G.

Very accommodating and clean!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed here during our fishing trip to Guntersville. Dave and Edna has gone above and beyond to make sure this place is very accommodating, including covered boat parking and electric hook ups. The inside of the cabin was perfect. Everything you could ask for and more. The boat ramp is only a few hundred feet down the road and across from what is pretty much a general store that has anything you may have forgotten. I give this one the highest marks and would recommend to anyone. You won't be disappointed!
