About Libby

Mark and I (Libby) have been making our family vacation home available to the public when our family does not use it which seems too often these days. We have one child - Nicholas - a dog and cat. One of our favorite things to do is hiking - the state park is only 5 miles away and has some great trails. We love having guests visit our cabin and have convenient methods for checking in and paying rental fees.

Libby purchased this cabin in 1980

Why Libby chose Alabama

Guntersville is a neighboring city to our hometown, Albertville. Almost all water and surrounded by the foothills of the Appalacians, it must be one of America's best kept secrets - sleepy but absolutely breathtaking.

What makes this cabin unique

The views are amazing here. The cabin is on a mountain side sort of and the upper floors are especially good for viewing the water and mountains. The boathouse with free boatslip is still only 50 feet away.) This place is all about outdoor life with water sports, cooking out, and general fun with friends and family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We moved here about 5 months ago and I never knew about these cabins.

I had a very stressful week so my sone and daughter in law booked me a cabin. It is so peaceful here and cozy.

I felt so at ease and my stress has lifted.

Thank you for this time here.

I will let people know about this place

Excellent Value!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved our stay at Polecat Place. I have severe allergies and tend to have problems in environments with dust, but I had virtually no issues here. It was spotlessly clean, stocked with everything we needed, and was really close to nearby restaurants and grocery stores. Perfect stay- I would recommend to anyone.

Great Fishing with Southern Hospitatlity

  • 5 of 5

My elderly dad and I really enjoyed our stay, If your looking for convenience, mixed with southern hospitality, along with a great place to fish this is the place. The owner is excellent and she made sure we felt at home. The lower unit is comfortable and the covered boat house was a great benefit. However remember to bring bumper buoys for your boat the skiing community, of an evening, keeps the waves going.

This was our 3rd time staying at Pole Cat and we will be back again! The views are breathtaking, the location is wonderful and the house has everything we need. My husband and I have always stayed in the bottom unit and we love the bottom deck. We only caught 4 fish but we still had a blast. We celebrated out 10th anniversary at Rock House Eatery (highly recommend) and we also ate at Somewhere on the Lake (yes, that's the name of it) which was just perfect. We will be back again! Thanks Libby!

A Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time on he lake! The Polecat Place should be renamed The Polecat Palace, because we definitely felt like royalty watching the sunrise each morning from our wonderful view on the deck on the second floor. Libby keeps the place spotless and the decor is so comfy, we felt like we were right at home from the minute we arrived! We've already booked a return trip!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

The place has been completely redone since I was there last and it is beautiful. The really fun part was sitting on the deck with all my relatives and visiting, AND watching my granddaughters catch bluegill on the pier. They had a blast! Libby, her husband and son and "Jack" the dog could not have been nicer. Thank you for another wonderful vacation.

Polecat Palace

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great! The listing accurately depicted the location, the photos accurately showed what the house is like, the property was clean and well maintained, the owner is super nice and helpful, I would reccomend this property to anyone for a fun getaway on Lake Guntersville! It is conveniently located to sveral boat ramps for fishermen and the state park for fun with the kids.

Located approximately 1 mile from downtown Guntersville with lots of great shopping and restaurants. Salvage shopping our favorite. Water sports are the best right at the cabin!
