Come and enjoy our large waterfront vacation homes on Lake Guntersville. This magnificent lake is in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains and in the Northern-most portion of the State of Alabama. One of the largest lakes in the South with 69,000 acres of water and 950 miles of breathtaking shorelines. Lake Guntersville is part of the navigable Tennessee River, which connects Knoxville, Chattanooga, Scottsboro, Guntersville, Tuscaloosa and via the Tombigbee, boaters can navigate on to Mobile Bay and the Gulf Coast. Exciting dam locks all along the River make Lake Guntersville a controlled constant level lake. Water skiing, boating, fishing, tubing, eagle watching, and exploring are just a sample of this all around wonderful sports lake. Hosting the Bass Master tour is another delight.

The Beddingfield vacation homes are in the city limits of Guntersville and convenient to all shopping, and dining.

TRAVEL TIP; to conserve space in your luggage, and help with wrinkling, roll your clothes instead of folding.
Cruising boaters can start the Great Loop from any point on the route. If one were to start in New York they would set out in May and head up the Hudson River to Waterford. Most head west on the Erie Canal, turn right on the Oswego Canal and cross Lake Ontario to Trenton, Ontario. The Trent Severn Canal takes them to Georgian Bay and the beautiful North Channel of Lake Huron. The season is only 6 weeks long up there from July 1 to Aug 15 so you don’t want to miss the window where the weather is warm (but never the water). Cruisers use August to get to Chicago on Lake Michigan and stop in at the many harbors every 15-20 miles along the east side of Michigan. From Chicago its down the Illinois River, Mississippi River and up the Ohio River to the Tennessee River. Most spend autumn along the Tennessee River with a visit to Chattanooga and Guntersville, Alabama. Some will also visit Nashville on the Cumberland River. In November it is time to head down the Tennessee Tombigbee Waterway to Mobile Alabama. Winters are spent in Florida or the Bahamas. In the spring it’s time to head north up the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway with time in Chesapeake Bay arriving back in New York mid May. The trip has taken one year. What most people say when they have completed the loop is “It’s not so much the trip it’s the people we met on the way that we enjoyed the most.
Not everyone does the loop in a 30-60 ft trawler. People are doing the loop on jet skis, kayaks, row boats, fishing boats, a solar powered canal boat, and sail boats.
Have you ever wondered how far you can travel by boat in America?
