It's the perfect accommodation for couples, small families, seniors, solo adventurers, and business travelers. While the owners live in the home upstairs, guests have the roomy suite all to themselves. Space This is a private and restful one-bedroom, ground-level Suite that features easily accessible parking; its own entrance; roomy master bedroom with queen bed, closet and desk; smaller separate bedroom with a single bed; large bathroom with walk-in shower; kitchenette area; and a living room with comfortable seating, DVD monitor & library, cafe table, and room for a roll-away bed. The Suite is reasonably accessible for those with lessened mobility or some handicaps, but is not ADA compliant. Please contact host to be sure the space is suitable for your needs before reserving. A crib is available on request. We also rent a cabin on the property that sleeps 4, allowing larger groups of up to 8 to enjoy the property together. (Search for 'Meadow Lake Cabin' on Flipkey.) Guest access We're situated on 3.5 acres. Guests have access to the front meadow, a seasonal stream, lake dock, lakeside benches, and our salt-system (low chlorine) swimming pool with patio dining tables (located behind our home). Our lake is home to Largemouth Bass, Bream, & several turtle species, and is periodically visited by Hummingbirds, Great Blue & Green Herons, Canada Geese, Wood Ducks, Kingfishers, Muskrats, & Beavers. Guest interaction We love to meet our guests and help them in any way. Someone is available any time to help with whatever need arises. Prefer complete privacy? We can make ourselves scarce too! Neighborhood overview Our home is located just off a county road, but on a private lane that's only used by the few residents living on it, allowing privacy without being remote. Chelsea has small-town character, but easy access to big-city amenities. The Shelby County area has many quiet and scenic roads to explore. Within 15 minutes you can find great dining and shopping options, a large cinema, and any number of services. Our county seat, Columbiana, has a pleasant Main Street to stroll, complete with a drugstore soda fountain. Columbiana also lays claim to a small gem of a museum with the second largest collection of George & Martha Washington memorabilia outside of Mt. Vernon! Getting around Meadow Lake is approximately 40 minutes' drive from Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport, 2.5 hours from Hartsfield-Atlanta Airport, and less than 30 minutes from Interstates 65, 20, or 459. We are located less than 5 minutes from U.S. Highway 280. Other things to note The Suite, the area immediately around the house, and the pool area are all Smoke-Free Zones. Smoking is only permitted on the lawn areas, and butts must be collected and disposed of in the guest's vehicle or a bottle of water. There are no exceptions to this. To accommodate guests with allergies, no pets are allowed in the Suite, and no exceptions to this are considered except service animals. (Dogs are allowed in Meadow Lake Cabin. Our dog 'Tilly' lives in our home or fenced back yard, but does not have access to the apartment or other areas of the property. Our cat 'Pepper' lives upstairs with us, and is never allowed in the Suite.) The Suite has a 'Smart TV' (but no cable or satellite service), and a large library of family-friendly DVD's available to guests. Guests may connect to the internet and access their own subscriptions (such as Netflix) or other viewing options they'd like to purchase (such as Amazon Video). Above all we hope the Suite will be a place for you to unwind, read, and talk to one-another. While a discount is offered for extended stays of 1 week or more, no discounts are offered for other reasons (military, seniors, students, etc.) The Host has a Master's degree in Environmental Education, and is a certified Alabama Master Naturalist. Guided nature walks can be arranged for an extra charge. If interested please inquire for details in advance of your stay. We also rent a mobile Grill, BBQ Smoker & Pizza Oven for area events, through BBQRents, if you're in the area for a family reunion or party.More

Interaction with guests
We believe informality is a key ingredient of relaxation, and it begins when you arrive. We allow guests to let themselves in and get settled, and enjoy meeting them later when possible. We're always glad to recommend places to visit, shop, or eat at in our area, or otherwise make ourselves available to help.

A beautiful place to spend a quiet relaxing weekend. Loved waking up and drinking coffee out on the dock. David was very polite and helpful in all aspects. Would definitely recommend to others.
