Wonderful accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Northport house Thanksgiving weekend and had our Thanksgiving dinner at the house. We had plenty of room. It's a lovely kitchen. The whole house is very nice. It was so much better than getting 2 or 3 hotel rooms. We had a great weekend and would love to go back. I would highly recommend it!

My Awesome Graduation Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I recently rented this beautiful house for my family to come gather during my graduation weekend from The University of Alabama. The house was gorgeous as pictured. Tammie and her family were all so nice and friendly. My family and friends all enjoyed my celebration at the house. The house is very spacious and nicely renovated. It was perfectly located in Northport away from all the graduation traffic but it was an short easy drive to campus and downtown. Again I loved this house and I would like to thank Tammie and her family for allowing my family and I to make it our home away from home during my graduation weekend. It was a really special weekend for me and I couldn't have picked a better house to celebrate. My mom and dad are already planning to rent this house next year for a football game...ROLL TIDE!

2016 Graduation Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect!! Plenty of room for 6 adults. Nice kitchen and bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable and the bedrooms were very roomy. Close to campus and the Riverwalk. By being in Northport, we avoided all of the traffic around the McFarland and stadium areas- easy access to the graduation ceremony. Very clean and totally upgraded. Nice front porch with a porch swing! Highly recommend! Would definitely stay there again! Thank you for everything!
