    Dandelion Cottage. Located On Gumwood Ranch Across From Weiss Lake

    Cottage with kitchen, near Weiss Lake
    Dandelion Cottage is a rustic country cottage located on Gumwood Ranch about 8 miles North of Centre, Alabama and just across the road from Weiss Lake. Our guests appreciate the peace and quiet here on our 14+ acre place. It is a restful and enjoyable change from staying in town where there are lots of people, noise etc. The fishing here at Weiss Lake is general very good and Yellow Creek Falls and Fish camp about 2 miles away has a public boat ramp and dock area. We have a fish cleaning table with sink outside for easy clean up of your days catch. Note: We are across the road from the lake. Some of our guests walk across the road and fish from the bank. The main bedroom has a queen bed and second bedroom has a twin bed and also a nice comfortable cot which kids and smaller adults can use. We have a futon in the living room which could be used for additional sleeping accommodation or there are 2 camp cots which you may use if you bring your own sleeping bags. If you enjoy being out in the country but only 15 minutes from town, we think you will enjoy Dandelion Cottage and it would be our pleasure to welcome you.

      My Best Friend and I needed a shirt getaway so each of us searched locations and picked this sweet little Cottage. It was so peaceful and relaxing. Meeting the owners was a pure joy. Peter and Kit are sweet souls and very easy to work with. Give Dandelion Cottage a try for your next getaway, you won’t regret it!

        Dandelion Cottage is a quiet, rural getaway spot that was ideal for us for a few days of rest. Little River Canyon National Preserve is nearby, which is a wonderful place to hike, swim and fish. We enjoyed our time there!

              Clean, comfortable and relaxing

              We loved our week at the Dandelion Cottage. It was clean, comfortable, and felt like home. We had access to the blueberry bushes, which were in full of ripe fruit. The owners were both gracious and welcoming, while respecting social distancing of at least twenty feet. Evenings on the front porch were great, with beautiful sunsets, and the sound of bullfrogs near the lake. Having a laundry room was an extra amenity that we enjoyed. We look forward to returning again in the future. For us, it was a five star experience.
