Welcome to 'Magnolia Manor' in Crane Hill, AL in Cullman, Al near Bremen and across from the superb Trident Marina. NEW 16 x 32-foot PAVILION AND DOUBLE DECKER BOAT DOCK!! Steps down from the house and a NEW Double Decker Boat Dock with 16 x 32 Swim Platform attached to our new double-decker boat dock also the lower deck on the house has about 1500 square feet of outside space that is now covered so even if it rains you can use the lower deck with our new outdoor professional ping pong table! Also, if after looking at all those steps and you have older folks who would have a hard time with the steps, talk to me about that. We have an option thanks to our kind neighbor! So don't worry about that part! We just ask that one does not block the drive because that is the neighbors drive to their house and they are kind enough to let our guests use it if need be.
Given the current concern about the China Virus, we have upgraded out cleaning methods as follows:
We use the following protocol using a diluted bleach solution (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water and alcohol. We clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces in the household common areas (e.g. tables, hard-backed chairs, doorknobs, light switches, phones, tablets, touch screens, remote controls, keyboards, handles, desks, toilets, sinks).
We named the property Magnolia Manor because the surrounding hills and hollows area has abundant 'cowcumber' magnolias growing everywhere. On Google Maps we can be found just across the lake (West Side) from the Bridge at Trident Marina next to the peninsula. Trident Marina has live music during the summer months. Double-decker boat dock with an upper pavilion now installed. We have 270 feet of steps down to the lakeside pavilion and then a sidewalk down to the new double-decker boat dock with swim platform. Dock Fishing and site-seeing excellent. Free WiFi. 15-20 minutes from Interstate 65, the major highway artery from Mobile, AL to Chicago, IL. Perfect for a small wedding venue. We have associated with an exclusive wedding planner, valleykevents.com for those that want to do that.
If you are going to book for a Wedding on the property, then please contact our exclusive wedding planner, https://valleykevents.com/contact-us. Valerie will take care of the booking and all the details for you.

A newly opened 1455 Acre plus OHV (Off Highway Vehicle Park) is only 15 minutes away. The County of Cullman, AL built and maintains this Park called 'Stoney Lonesome.' Very popular with folks driving in from AL, TN, and MS.
According to the Birmingham News article on June 12, 2008, ' The Cullman County Commission bought the land - seven miles southwest of the Interstate 65 exit at Dodge City - in 2012 for just more than $1.8 million.
Much of the money came from an Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs grant designated for an OHV park.
The OHV park has basic trails open for the ATVs, the motorcycles, the mountain biking,' Sellers said.....rock crawling, so 4x4 vehicles with oversized tires can crawl over large boulders or up steep inclines, Sellers said. The county plans to get rock crawlers to help design and build that trail section from quarried boulders.

Lewis Smith Lake is a Southern Company reservoir in North Alabama. The three-fingered lake was created by Alabama Power to produce hydroelectric eco-friendly power and improve river traffic conditions on the Black Warrior River, as well as to provide recreation opportunities.
Besides fishing the lake offers excellent opportunities for other water sports, including swimming, boating, jet-skis, and water skiing, as well as non-water related activities like camping, picnicking and just plain relaxing. This Lake Home is about 1 hour north of Birmingham and about 2 hours south of Nashville, 2 and 1/2 hours from Atlanta, just 15 minutes off Interstate 65. Lewis Smith Lake is located between Birmingham and Huntsville and is nestled among the pastures and rolling hills of Northern Alabama.

'We visited Magnolia Manor in June and had a wonderful time. I have four
kids and 7 grandchildren. The house is wonderful for a big family.
Everyone had their own rooms and the kids loved the bunks. The kitchen
is adequately furnished for cooking large meals. We loved the outside
decks. There is lots of parking for several vehicles. We enjoyed our
time at Magnolia Manor and would recommend it for a family vacation.'
......Dianne Holloman, Quitman, MS
'Marvelous time with all the kids and grandkids. We hope to come back next year!'
