New in 2022! The Hideout At Buck Island in a quiet inlet on Guntersville Lake

The “Hideout at Buck Island” is only 35 minutes from downtown Huntsville, on the shoreline of Guntersville Lake, in a quiet cove just minutes to the main channel, with a private dock 100 feet from the back door.  The home sits on a half acre gently sloping lot with 180 feet of shoreline.   The roomy 2400 square foot home with a screened in porch and a large deck provides ample room for guests to be comfortable with modern conveniences, while enjoying the wildlife that make frequent appearances including Bald Eagles, Osprey and Great Blue Herons.  

Guntersville Lake is Alabama’s largest lake covering 69,100 acres with 900 miles of shoreline.  Guntersville is ranked #2 out of the 100 Best Bass Lakes of the Decade by Bassmaster magazine and is a regular stop on several major tournament tours.  Guntersville is also home to three sites on the North Alabama Birding Trail.  There are many other activities in the area detailed in the Things To Do page including golf, cave tours, ziplining, hiking, and waterfall trails. The “Hideout at Buck Island” is 5 minutes to downtown Guntersville offering a wide variety of dining and shopping opportunities, including City Harbor opening in the Spring of 2022.

The “Hideout at Buck Island” has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.  Two of the bedrooms have adjoining private bathrooms.  One of these has a Queen bed, the other one has a Queen bed and a twin with a trundle.  The third bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds.  The third bathroom is in a hallway across from the third bedroom.  The home sleeps 10.  The two upper bunks have side rails, and have a weight limit of 120 pounds and are not suitable for children under 5 years of age.  All beds have memory foam mattresses purchased in 2022.  All linens, bedding, and towels were purchased in 2022.

The kitchen is fully equipped to prepare and serve meals for groups of 10.  The kitchen is stocked with cookware, bakeware, crock pot, hand mixer, blender, coffee pot, and grilling utensils.  The sunroom has a table with seating for six and a second table with seating for four.  The attached screened in porch has table seating for four, with an additional four seats.  There is outdoor seating on the back deck.

There is a step down in the house.  The kitchen, living room and one bedroom are on the same level.  The sunroom that runs along the back of the house has a step down.  Two of the bedrooms are entered through the sunroom, requiring a step down into the sunroom, and a step up.

The private dock is about 100 feet from the back of the house, and has decking 12 feet by 32 feet with a view towards the main channel.  This cove is a favorite of the local fishermen and will be one of your favorite fishing holes too.
