Our second home is a mix of mid-century modern and "cabin in the woods." It sits on 2 heavily wooded acres and backs up to a mountainside with rock outcroppings. The main living area (living room, dining area, and kitchen) is raised about 4 steps, and the bedroom and bath areas are on the main level. There is one large bathroom with a shower.

There is a gas log fireplace surrounded by ledge stone in front of the u-shaped built-in sofa. There is abundant reading material & 2 TV's.

The space
Located just 6 miles from Huntsville in the Hampton Cove area, this totally updated modern cedar cabin offers 2 bedrooms, 1 large bath with shower, plenty of closet space, and covered parking for 2 cars. The home sits on over 2 acres of woods, providing serenity and privacy and lovely views from expansive windows. It feels as if you're in a mountain retreat, yet it's only 1 mile from Publix, Wal-Mart, Lowe's, and only 2 miles from the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course. It is 10 miles from Huntsville's Medical District. The home is fully furnished and has a queen-sized and a full bed. Full washer & dryer, cleaning supplies, iron & ironing board, TV w/cable, grill, towels, cooking and eating utensils---the works! A lovely nature trail is less than a mile away.

Guest access
All space is accessible to guests; detached shed can be accessed with permission.

Other things to note
There are 3 steps from the carport to the house and another 3 steps from the entrance to the kitchen/sitting room area, a situation for persons with walking problems to be aware of. Otherwise, there is ample sitting area on the main level in the "pit," and the bedrooms and bathroom are on the entrance level.

Home is located on a private, 2-acre lot, so it seems as though you're in a mountain retreat, but you're within 1 mile of a super-WalMart, Walgreen's, Publix Supermarket, and several eating establishments. Furthermore, 6 miles away is a large shopping complex with Super Target, PetSmart, Barnes & Noble, Kohl's, Marshall's, Ross, Kirkland's Home, Hobby Lobby, etc. There are also many choices for meal, from franchise restaurants like Red Robin, Five Guys, Zaxby's, and Longhorn's to local fare from Mezza Luna and Another Broken Egg.

During this uncertain time, be assured that we are sanitizing every surface that someone might touch; we are washing all linens in bleach or some other sanitizing agent like Lysol, we are spraying all soft surfaces with Lysol, and we provide plenty of foaming cleanser for you to wash your hands. When possible, we open windows and doors to let in fresh air. Our little house sits on 2 acres of woods and is a respite from the hustle and bustle of the town, but it's only 5 miles from the Jones Valley area, which offers shopping and restaurants, 10 miles from downtown Huntsville, 2 miles from the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, and 25 minutes from Lake Guntersville. Just around the corner from this little hidden gem is a Publix, Super Walmart, Lowe's, Walgreens, Chick Fil A, Huddle House, and other restaurants offering anything from Italian to Barbecue. The stone and cedar home is a mix of mid-century modern and rustic contemporary, providing 3 decks, covered parking for 2 cars, and 2 acres of woods where deer are frequent visitors. If you are looking for serenity, peace, and quiet, our home is sure to please.
