About Greg Frey

I am retired and enjoy deer hunting and renting my lake home and my beautiful rustic cabin in nearby Collinwood TN .

Greg Frey purchased this house in 1984

Why Greg Frey chose Alabama

This house is only 10 minutes from down town Florence and just off hwy 43 in Killen Ala.There is a large Foodland and McDonalds only a couple minuties away also Pizza hut and Sub Way in Shopping Center. I do a lot of referrals and repeat guests ,which get a 10% discount!I will allow small family gatherings but there is not a lot of parking for large weddings.This is the best family rental on Wilson Lake,and I guarantee the house will be clean and as advertised!

What makes this house unique

We have a separate 20x20 cedar hot tub room use year round, with a beautiful cedar wrap around bar and 50 inch led flat screen T V perfect for entertaining , there is also small refrigerator in the room.Out doors we have a large smoker grill and gas grill and indoors there is a one of a kind charcoal bar-B-Q grill,you can grill indoors rain or shine on in winter time when its freezing outside!The ceiling in the upstairs are,17 feet tall and gives you that open feeling, lake effect!There are double decks on the house and the lower decks are covered so no problem when it rains.

There are two glass top tables and plenty of Amish made cedar glider chairs to enjoy your time looking at the wonderful view of Shoals Creek,where you may see an Eagle or Osprey fly by or just land in the trees.This is a special place and I know you will enjoy it like I have since 1984.Last the boathouse has two electric lifts so bring your boat or wave runners and have a blast!

Property and home were both excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The home was a great place to enjoy for everyone of all ages. So much to do and the diving board on dock is lots of fun. Would highly recommend the property to anyone! Owners are excellent and home is very well taken care of.

Labor Day at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect. The best part is the two decks overlooking the lake for a quiet morning coffee and view. Then afternoons filled with swimming off the dock and boating. Greg is great and helpful. Neighbors are wonderful. Bring only your clothes and food because everything else is provided. This would also be great in the fall for watching football and fishing off the dock. Our group caught four good size fish in one afternoon.

Words can't describe how unbelievable our stay was!!

  • 5 of 5

I do not no where to begin but here goes, after our long 10 hour drive from Louisiana we finally arrived to a beautiful lake house which was cleaned spotless and just like Mr. Greg had described. After unpacking me and the wife and the 4 kids got in our swimming suits and headed down to the water, after swimming and kayaking for a hour or so it was time for the diving board which my oldest son tried out first and after that all 6 of us took turns jumping and having a blast. Throughout the rest of our week we went to many of the nature trails and to the Indian mounds and ate at Ricks B-B-Que and the other local restaurants around town, everything is close by and very easy on the pocket book, the kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need to cook your own meals and the outside gas grill was a plus. Mr. Greg even gave us some deer and beef ground meat and some backstrap which I cooked up some burgers and grilled the backstrap ((Thank you) We fried some fresh catfish and bass that we caught also. I would recommend to take the kayaks up to Brush Creek where went we several times to enjoy the ice cold water coming out. Me and the boys caught plenty of bass including a 4lb and 5lb in the creek which we let go for other people to catch and enjoy like we did. The pool table and air hockey was used almost every night as we had tournaments with the kids, the ac kept the house ice cold and the beds were super comfortable, all the neighbors were extremely nice and one of them offered us to use her paddle boards which we did. Every morning while drinking my coffee and walking around the neighborhood I saw plenty of deer and other wildlife. This was by far the best vacation me and my family has gone on, I would have gave it a 10 star if I could have, so thank you Mr. Greg for letting us stay at your place, if you are ever in my neck of the woods let me know because you have a family of friends in South Louisiana, thanks again Robert.

The perfect place to stay for a week of fun with your family.

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression was amazing. Mr Greg was friendly, organized, and accommodating. We had waverunners and he put in two lifts for them. The kitchen is a wonderful working kitchen with everything you need for cooking instead of eating out. Beds we soft and comfortable as well as spacious without clutter and plenty of room for your things. Everything was clean. We can't say enough about how awesome this house is. A perfect vacation.

Stunning home, great location, attentive host! Fantastic overall experience!

  • 5 of 5

Having rented from VRBO on quite a few occasions, I have learned not to get too optimistic after a few disappointments. This home in Killen AL more than lived up to its claim. There were absolutely no disappointments during our week there. First I will mention the house - this home is large, modern and very well taken care of. It sits in a very nice quiet neighborhood. You feel as if you are away from the city with just you and the lake -but stores and restaurants are closer than you would think. Decks galore, large kitchen and dining room, comfortable beds, everything was clean and functional! Nice master garden bathroom. Good TV and WIFI reception, well stocked with kitchen gadgets , cleaning supplies and spices. For the kids ( and adults, too!) there is a hot tub ( the biggest one I have ever seen) air hockey and a pool table. Everything worked just fine and all necessary components to play the games were there. Down at the large two level dock, there are kayaks ( included in the rental), chairs, tables, diving board and shade if desired. The previous renters had possible broken the shower faucet. I contacted Greg and he was out the very next morning and replaced it. He is very pleasant and cares about his guests having a great experience. He cares about the home and it shows. I do not have one negative thing to say about our experience. Our family of four have all voted to come back. There is no need to look for any other homes in this area. We hit the jackpot! Thanks Greg for the experience, it was a memorable one! You have a fantastic home, it was hard to leave!
