This one story mountaintop bungalow sits on two acres and is perfect for a family vacation, girl's retreat or home base when attending a Lodge or Burritt wedding. Please ask me about a discount for 1-2 adults. Those interested in Huntsville's space history will find this house and the story it tells fascinating. With the wonder of nature right outside your back door, you are able to walk or ride a bike to the state park with its beautiful hiking trails and you are still only minutes away from the Medical District, 5 Points and the Space and Rocket Center. If you head west you are only 5 miles from the Robert Trent Jones golf course and Hampton Cove. This fully furnished home has a king bed in the master bedroom with a huge walk in closet, two twins (one is an antique suitable for a child or small person) and double bed in the second bedroom, and a fold out sofa and twin bed in the third bedroom/library. There are also two foldaway beds and a baby bed if you need one. For a party of 12, or just to have a bit more room, a "glamper" that sleeps two is available. The house has two full bathrooms; one with a tub shower, and the other with a walk in shower. There are two steps down (with handicap handrail) from the living room to the bedrooms. There is plenty of closet space, a full sized washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, cookware, dishes and utensils, a dining table that will seat 10, a well stocked library and a gorgeous fireplace to sit and enjoy yourself for as long as you like. TV, cable, wireless internet, outdoor fire pit grill, covered porch,and many more amenities are provided. This lovely home is filled with beautiful antiques, oriental carpets and all the extras to make you feel right at home. The hosts live next door and can help with any particular needs you might have.

About Lisa and Fred
We are both from Huntsville, but have lived in many other places. We moved back to Huntsville in 1996 and bought the house next door to this one, which is the house Fred grew up in.
Lisa and Fred purchased this House in 1960
Why Lisa and Fred chose Monte Sano Mountain
Wouldn't live anywhere else in Huntsville but Monte Sano. It's like always being on vacation. Monte Sano, Mountain of Health, has long been known for its healthy environment and was historically believed the furthermost southern area to escape malaria, yellow fever and cholera due in part to its cooling winds, el viento.
What makes this House unique
1 mile to Monte Sano State Park, 7 miles to Robert Trent Jones Golf Course, 5 miles to Space and Rocket Center, this property is centrally located but has the room and privacy of a cabin in the woods.

Perfect for a Burritt wedding!
Our daughter was having her wedding reception at Burritt and we live out of state. We came a week before the wedding and stayed at the Monte Sano Bungalow. Lisa was wonderful, greeting us and making sure we had everything we needed. She lives
next door, which is really nice. We had friends and family coming into town at different times, so it was great to have a place where everyone could gather and share meals
together. It was also convenient to be so close to Burritt on the day of the wedding. We were able to make several trips with our vehicle loaded both before the reception and afterwards. The history in this house is amazing! We wish we could have had more time to read some of the books that were at the house. We thoroughly enjoyed all of the photos and paintings on the wall. It was a very relaxing place to be during a
relatively hectic time.
We really enjoyed having y’all stay with us during all the festivities! Now you know where we are, you have to come back!
Lovely and Welcoming
The Monte Sano Bunglaow is everything advertised and more. The hosts are great people who accommodated every need and the property was clean, spacious, comfortable and well appointed.. We could feel the love of the place when we walked in. Dog friendly too!
Beautiful, serene, spacious!! Wifi was great. Our hosts were gracious and location was quick access to food and services.
House, setting and owners were all fantastic
Lisa and her husband were great to work with. The house and most importantly the beds were great. We had a great time and the house helped that to happen. We were there for my sons bachelor party. We had 9 men. So when I say comfortable for 9 men that says a lot.
Spacious and comfortable
Owner very pleasant and easy to work with. Lives close by. Accommodated the groomsmen in our daughter's wedding for the weekend. Would definitely recommend!
Rocket City History
We enjoyed our stay in this quiet, comfortable home, rich with Rocket City history. The hostess/owner, Lisa, was very welcoming and helpful. We sat around the open fire at night, cooked outside twice and had s'mores for dessert. We enjoyed the nearby Monte Sano State Park and the Wernher von Braun Observatory. It is a quick drive from downtown Huntsville and the U.S. Space and Rocket Center. If you want a mountain view while enjoying the sights in Huntsville, stay here! Don't forget to do a driving tour of the Old Town Historic District. Wonderful old homes there!
Close to Space and Rocket Center, home of Space Camp; Monte Sano State Park and Lodge; and the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail
