CLICK "MORE DETAILS" TO SEE FULL DESCRIPTION & DETAILS

Come and relax in our private, rustic, beautifully appointed, lake front cabin nestled in a quiet deep water cove off of Hatchet Creek on Lake Mitchell. This cozy 3 bedroom 2 bathroom vacation cabin (great for families desiring quality time together, couples looking for a romantic getaway, church staff retreats, or even small corporate staff retreats) comes complete with a screened porch with porch swing, an extra large shaded deck for grilling, relaxing, and entertaining, a spacious dock for relaxing in the sun, and a fully enclosed boat house & boat slip for those who'd like to bring their boat to enjoy one of the best fish and sport lakes in Alabama.

Enjoy cooking in the spacious newly UPDATED eat kitchen with stainless appliances including a double oven, stand alone ice maker, dishwasher, and large sink with granite counter tops. Cabin comes equipped with washer and dryer and gas fireplace with gas logs.

Lake Mitchell is located approximately half way between Birmingham and Montgomery in the center of Alabama. It is part of the Coosa River chain between Lake Jordan and Lay Lake. The majority of Lake Mitchell is wildlife protected, and is one of the few lakes on the chain that is not flood controlled. The water level remains stable all year round, with the exception of a relatively small drop of about 4-8 feet every few years for dam maintenance. Lake Mitchell supports high densities of sport fish. However, swimming and boating are just as popular as fishing in warm weather.

Come and enjoy tranquility leaving your cares behind!

Fathers Day weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great communication before, during, and after our stay with the owners, everything was as advertised. I intend to rent again if available. We had no issues. We cooked in the kitchen, grilled out, wake boarded, wake surfed, fished, visited with friends, played board games at night, coffee and a good book on the porch early in the mornings, very shaded lot, deep water off the pier, a few steps down to the water but not much to complain about.

Labor Day Weekend fun!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for a family getaway! The owners were great to work with – very accommodating. It was relaxing to sit on the porches with your cup of coffee or to play games with family members. Our family loved floating around in the warm lake water and also jumping off the boathouse was a hit.

Perfect hide away

  • 5 of 5

House was clean and neat. I had asked ahead if certain cooking supplies were there and it looked like they gone and got them for me, very thoughtful! Love the kitchen makeover and upstairs bathroom updates. We enjoyed the swing on the porch, dock, and lake jumping area for the kids. At night the kids enjoyed going "old school" with the old Nintendo and we played for hours on the Wii.

Cabin is great for kids and physically mobile adults but not sure it would work for anyone with physical challenges. The cabin has a set of stairs to get down to the cabin and another down to the dock and steep stairs to the upstairs bedrooms. For most people this won't be a problem but could be important to some.

Good communication and helpful owners. Would love to rent again and highly recommend!!!!

Get away

  • 5 of 5

Great little cabin getaway tucked in a nice quiet cove on lake Mitchell just off the main channel. It is so peaceful to just go sit on the swing in the screened in back Porch and relax or take a nap. The kitchen has all nice new appliances including an ice machine that came in handy. It also has a boat house and deck that is great for swimming or floating on a raft.
