Tucked away on the wooded banks of Lake Tuscaloosa, the 1820s Boone Cabin provides historic charm, modern features, and breathtaking views of the lake. Boone newspapers graciously donated the home to The University of Alabama in honor of Mrs. Frances Boone. With renovations that maintain the historic integrity of the home, the venue is now a perfect site for day or overnight family gatherings, day rentals for church or corporate retreats, class reunions and weddings.
With a sleeping capacity of eight people, the cabin can easily accommodate single or multiple families. The cabin nestled near the east bank of Lake Tuscaloosa and about 35 minutes from The University of Alabama campus features a cozy living room with a smart, flat screen TV and unlimited cable channels, kitchen with modern amenities, two full baths, master bedroom with flat screen television and queen bed, two upstairs bedrooms for guests (one with queen bed and flat screen television and the other with four twin beds and activity table), and outdoor grilling on a separate patio. Wireless internet is also available throughout the cabin. To further enhance your stay, camping gear, canoes, kayaks, and other outdoor equipment can be rented through the University’s Recreation Center.
Boone Cabin is perfect for spring, summer or fall weekend stays, special events, game day weekends or your special wedding day (up to 150 guests). The cabin features a large back porch full of rocking chairs to accommodate multiple guests. It leads down to a winding, slated rock pathway to the water. Adirondack chairs are also provided for your leisure of small talks, soaking up some sun, or watching your loved ones’ swim.
