NOTE: Vrbo does not add the required taxes into the final quote! If you choose to book through this site, the required 11% lodging/local tax will be added to the payment before it is accepted. So sorry for the inconvenience!
EXCITING NEWS: We are in the process of renovating the 2BR/2BA guest house located on the property. It will also be fully furnished and available to our guests at a lower rate. Be sure to check back for updates and/or search for us on the web. UPDATE 2/3/18: The guest house reno is coming along as planned. Be sure to ask about it if more sleeping space is needed! UPDATE 3/25/18: The guest house is complete and available as an add-on.
The Kayaks have arrived!! Four of them, actually...w/ life vests and paddles too. They are now available to all guests (with adult supervision). :)
The house will comfortably sleep 8 adults in a King bedroom, two Queen bedrooms, and one queen sleeper sofa. The other options (three double high queen air mattresses) are probably more feasible for kids/teens. If additional adult sleeping accomodations are needed, please be sure to ask about the 2 BR/2 BA guest house that is located on the property at a lower rate.
Perfectly located on Shoal Creek at the mouth of Wilson Lake, you will find no other like this. With 250' of waist deep water along the seawall that gradually deepens for swimming and fishing, and a large leveled ground with no slopes or steep steps to the water, people of all ages can enjoy themselves wading in the lake while enjoying the company of others on the bank.
We are confident that you will enjoy your time at our totally renovated and updated Shoal Creek Gibbons Home. We are located minutes from town, however you will feel as though you are in your own little world.
If you do decide to venture out on the town for a bit or to tour the beautiful places that Florence and the Shoals area has to offer, you will be pleasantly surprised to find everything and every place within minutes of the house.
We have tried our best to make our home as comfortable and homey for others as we prefer for ourselves. Most any amenity that you may need or want is available.
Having two kitchens, plenty of seating, and an open gathering area, our home is not only great for family outings, fishermen getaways, and vacations but also perfect for wedding receptions, family reunions, baby showers, business meetings, small wedding ceremonies, youth group outings, bridal showers, etc. We will also consider monthly corporate/business stays. Nightly rates/cleaning fees may be increased with larger groups.
Private pier with boat lift.
New state owned/public boat ramp is now open - directly to your right (off the highway) as you enter the street our home is located.
The Shoals is also the location documented in the 'Muscle Shoals' movie!
