Southern Backroad Retreats

Family-friendly vacation home in Goshen with outdoor pool
The Pool House is nestled a mile from the Conecuh River in Goshen, Alabama. It comprises a country comfort escape paired with city convenience. This Pool House hosts one private bedroom with king bed and additional sleeping accommodations in the great room area with pool table and plenty of entertainment space. A beautiful view of the expansive countryside can be enjoyed while grilling near the porch. This awesome space is only a 15min drive from Troy (231), a 22 min drive from 331 in Luverne, and a 50 min drive from Montgomery.

The Pool House is a quaint one bedroom escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Three steps led you to the front door. Inside you will find a great place to relax, watch your favorite TV show on Dish, enjoy free WiFi, or delight in a game of pool. All while drinking a refreshing glass of filtered well water. In the kitchen you will find the cabinets stocked with most of your cooking utensils. Both the microwave and refrigerator are new. Any laundry needs can be taken care of in the full size washing machine and dryer located in the full bath. The back door opens up to a majestic view of the pool with a privates fence. Steps lead down to the poolside. There you can enjoy a rejuvenating dip in the pool, show off your diving skills from the diving board, or relax in one of the six lounge chairs alongside the pool. If outdoor activities appeal, a boys and girls pitching mound and basketball goal are available across the yard. After having all the outdoor fun you can stand wash off in the outdoor shower before grilling.
This shot of paradise is not far from Downtown Troy, AL. Local points of interest include Troy University which hosts seasonal sporting events, As well as, Troy Parks & Recreational Center. It hosts manicured walking trails and softball and baseball fields. Enjoy a quite stay off the beaten path at the pool house if you are in town for a ballgame or any other activity in Troy.

Great quiet country getaway
The place was so cute, and the owner was very responsive to any questions I had. We had a great time.

Country Retreat
My husband and I were in desperate need of a few days to just rest. We booked the Pool House so we could quietly relax by the pool and avoid crowds. This place was perfect for that. We checked in and I spent three days there without having to leave once. We did a Walmart grocery pick up in Troy just before check in for stuff for breakfast and lunch. For dinner we would call in our order to the Old Barn restaurant and my husband would pick it up or they would deliver it to the Pool House. We had everything we needed to prepare meals and do any laundry. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the grill. The owners live right next door but the fence around the backyard provided a nice sense of space and privacy. Michelle was very prompt and responsive when we contacted her about anything we needed. The house was clean and exactly like the photos. I would definitely stay here again.

Can't wait to come back!!!
Good Morning Alabama!!! First and foremost, we would like to start off by saying THANK YOU to the Taylor family! This is probably one of the best Air BNBs in the state! The Taylors are an amazing, amazing family with very well mannered children. They made sure we had everything we needed and their son even took me fishing! The whole family is so friendly, nice, respectful, welcoming and very humble. It was so nice to see considering people just do not have the same manners now a days especially not back home. The property is beautiful, the pool is wonderful and being there just makes you so happy. My wife, children and I stayed at the Pool house from 04/27-05/01. We traveled all the way from Upstate, NY (over 1,100 miles) to visit family and to get away. We found this amazing pool house to stay in and could not be more happier with our experience. I plan on coming back to do some hunting with their business, Covey Point. I highly recommend you check this place out. You will not be disappointed! From NY all the way to AL, Taylor family, thank you again for your generous hospitality! We will see you again soon!

Relaxing Get Away
My family and I (kids 5 and 7) stayed here for our spring break. We wanted a quiet, warm place with a pool. The pool was clean and well kept. The pool deck area had plenty of chairs and a patio table and a gas grill. There was a door from the pool deck right to the bathroom which was nice. The doors to the pool have a ring that notifies you of the door is open. Great safety precaution for family with littles. There were pool noodles and a couple lounge floats. We enjoyed this area every day. The house was exactly as communicated. It was cozy and clean. The bathroom was pretty large and the shower had great water pressure and was warm. The water was good and we drank from faucet. The bed was comfy and my kids slept on pull out couch. They didn’t mind it, but I’m not sure my body would have been cozy there for a week. We also spent a lot of time in the yard kicking a soccer ball, watching birds, and watching the cattle across the street. We ran and enjoyed the fresh air. The owner lives next door and has two sweet dogs that my kids enjoyed petting as well. While the owners are right next door, they were super respectful and pretty busy so we didn’t see them much. The owner was quick to respond and so helpful when we contacted her. She made our experience pleasant. We also loved the food at the old barn restaurant that was walking distance from the house. The only advice I’d add is that if you are someone that is cold often, bring extra blankets. There is one pillow for each guest and only one blanket as well. There wasn’t a toaster, but all other kitchen needs were there including a dishwasher and microwave. The fridge has an ice maker which I always like. The nearest anything (gas, store, park, etc) is a 15-20 minute drive. We found a fun park (Murphy park) to take the kids in Troy do they could play. Overall, it was a wonderful vacation and I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a quiet get away with a pool.
