Fish and Frolic Holiday ~ a waterfront Guntersville Lake Retreat w/ dock, fire pit

Sleeps 8 | 3 Bedrooms | 5 Beds | 3 Bathrooms | 

Location

Fish and Frolic Holiday is situated on the shoreline of Guntersville Lake, home of the Bassmaster Classic, in a quiet cove just minutes to the main channel, with a private dock 175 feet from the back door. Located halfway between Guntersville and Scottsboro, this vacation home is located conveniently by shopping, golfing, restaurants, state parks, tournaments, boat launches, and so much more!  We are 12 minutes from the square in Scottsboro, 19 minutes from downtown Guntersville, and 55 minutes from the Huntsville airport.

Space

Fish and Frolic Holiday is a two-story, lakefront home with a private boathouse and dock – 3 Bedrooms/3 Bath/ and Loft
 
The home sits on a 1-acre, gently sloping lot with 100 feet of shoreline with views of the water from the dining area, kitchen, loft, and upstairs bedroom #2.   Access to a private, gated, neighborhood boat ramp and community dock is included! The cozy, newly renovated, 1660 square foot home has a large covered front porch, back porch, upstairs balcony, and firepit area.  It provides ample room for guests to be comfortable with modern conveniences, while enjoying the wildlife that make frequent appearances including bald eagles, osprey, turtles, bats and great blue herons. Vacationing here allows you to spend your days on the dock, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, or boating on the lake for hours filled with fun, fishing, and friends. When you think you have had enough fun in the sun, come home to enjoy a drink on the porch or upstairs balcony overlooking the lake, grill out for the family, or build a fire in the firepit to roast marshmallows and make memories. You will find all you need for a perfect lake getaway!
 
With our high speed fiber internet and office nook, you can work remotely (telecommute) if needed, with ease and dependability.

Escape

The golfers in the family can be at Goosepond Colony Resort with two beautiful 18 hole championship courses in a matter of minutes.  Other courses are a short distance away at the highly acclaimed Gunter’s Landing course, Guntersville State Park, Willowbrook Golf Course in Albertville, or Robert Trent Jones Golf Club at Hampton Cove.

The thrill seekers can go ziplining at Guntersville State Park or on a cave tour at Cathedral Caverns.  Those who want to be close to nature, but not on the lake, can go for a hike at one of the many county or state parks in the area, including many with waterfall trails.  Our favorite is Pisgah Falls, a 33 minute drive from Fish and Frolic Holiday.
On days when the weather prevents outdoor activity, or for those who need a break from the outdoors, there are a number of indoor attractions such as the Guntersville Museum, and the famous US Space and Rocket Center and Museum in Huntsville.

There are several wineries in the area including Harbor View in Guntersville, Joe Vineyard Farm in Albertville, and Jules J. Berta Vineyard in Albertville.

There are several spas in Guntersville including the Soap House & Soakery, Southern Comforts Salon and Spa, and Janz Salon Spa.  In Scottsboro there is RedefinedLooks Spa, Chaleur Salon & Spa, and Shear Bliss Med Spa, among others.  Be sure to take some time to relax and enjoy the view of the lake from the back deck or firepit.
There are a number of casual and fine dining restaurants within 10 to 30 minutes in Goose Pond Colony Resort, Scottsboro, and Guntersville.  City Harbor opened in the Spring of 2022 and offers dining and entertainment as an upscale family destination directly on the water near historic downtown Guntersville.

Security System

The property and neighborhood are safe areas. The neighbors are laid back and easy going. They all enjoy the lake life! We have found that some guests prefer a security system while traveling to an unfamiliar area, so one has been installed. There are video cameras actively recording 24/7 during your stay at each entry door and the driveway that allow guests to feel safe and comfortable in a secure environment.
