About Erik Gershfeld

Hello VRBO'ers! I'm Erik Gershfeld, proud husband and father of 6 little angels and we live just across town in Cullman.

Erik Gershfeld purchased this house in 2012

Why Erik Gershfeld chose Alabama

We came from Chicago, IL and we purchased this home to have a place to get away that was secluded and quiet in the country.

What makes this house unique

There's a feeling of calm and peace about the house. Something about it forces relaxation and that's an essential need in this crazy world

This was a great experience. The house has plenty of room for entertaining a large family. Its fully equipped with everything thing that you will need . I would definitely recommend this property for someone that's looking for a great country getaway that's just minutes to the city . The home owner was very easy to deal with from start to finish. Looking forward to returning next year .

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 4 days in the house. Everything that is in the ad is exactly as the house is. We have our family reunion the weekend after the 4th of July every year and as far as we are all concerned this is the only place we will stay.

Great home!

This home was a great place to be. We loved everything about the property. It was especially awesome to sit on the back porch and take in the sights. Would recommend for anyone needing to get away.

Awesome Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay! Your home is very roomy both inside and out. We LOVED being out in the country, but were only a short distance from town. We definitely plan to return in the future! :)

12th Annual Family Vacation

  • 3 of 5

Our family booked this location for our 12 annual family vacation. The house was great in many ways and also had a few misrepresentations. The most glaring was the 2nd guest room on the first floor. There were no bunk beds, the threadbare mattress was set right on the supports. There was no box spring. The total bed was only 12" from the floor. Made it very difficult for my 65 year old body to get in and out of the bed. The next disappointment was the fact that although a picture showed a slide and playhouse in the backyard, neither were there The 3 year old and 8/9 year olds were very disappointed. There was no organic veggie garden available. The shower in the first floor bathroom did not work. Everyone had to use either the master bath or the basement bath. The older kids did truly enjoy the downstairs playroom and fitness equipment and the fact that they had their privacy from the adults. The pool was very refreshing and the kitchen and dining area was large enough for us all. We did enjoy our vacation but wish that the items shown in the pictures were more truthful. Can not emphasize enough - THE BED WAS TERRIBLE!! The support boards would shift during sleep and would end up touching the floor during the night. Be sure to ask if changes were made before booking this house.

Owner's Response: Dear Peggy, I'm so sorry that you felt this way. We had an incident the stay before yours where the previous renter had broken the king bed in the master and we had to shuffle the 2 x twin bed frames from the other bedroom to support the king bed and get a temporary frame for the guest bedroom mattresses. We did our best in the one day that we had to fix this issue and is not a typical problem for us in any sense of the word! The slide in the picture was a little plastic slide, that you are correct is no longer there, but the little playhouse is still there....I will update the photo. The shower in the hall bath works fine. Its kind of tricky to change it from bath to shower though. I wish you would have called, I would have walked you through how to make it work. The organic garden picture was to show what we have done at the house in the past but I understand what your saying so I'm going to take that picture down. I wish you would have communicated any issues you were having to me during the stay so I could have tried to fix them for you. Thanks for your review and take care! Erik

FANTASTIC home to stay in!!! This home is well decorated and has everything you will need. Very comfortable and private. Close to shopping, restaurant & grocery stores. We brought our wave runners and spent the days riding Smith Lake (45 mins away) and Lake Guntersville( about 30 mins away). At night we enjoyed the private pool.

Spacious living areas and large shaded back deck with a smoker, grill and plenty of seating.

The owner is very, very nice and responds quickly to any question(s). Really appreciate his attention to detail on everything.

We will definitely be back to stay at this wonderful home.

HIGHLY recommend will have an enjoyable time!!!
