Wow!! The house and lake are absolutely gorgeous!! The owners could not have been more friendly!

We had a wonderful stay! We came up from Florida to get away from the hurricanes and ended up going to the Alabama game. Kim helped us get tickets and parking for the game, and she was also very informative about the area in general and things to do around here. The house and the lake are absolutely gorgeous.

Fabulous Retreat for Families!

Bama Lakeside Review was absolutely wonderful. The area is very quiet and the lake view is beautiful. We had five families with 11 total children and this house fit us perfectly. The pool was spacious enough to accommodate all of the children and the house was large enough that everyone had their own areas to congregate. The children loved the game room and fishing off the dock. The home had everything we needed and then some. Loved, loved, loved every minute of our time spent at Bama Lakeside Retreat and I would highly recommend it to large groups with children.
