Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountain range as if it were the final stroke of a Martin Johnson Heade painting lies a gem filled with unforgettable charm and unmatched hospitality. This 2,000-acre property boasts uniquely diverse topography, world-class upland bird and whitetail deer hunting, stunning event spaces and a 14,000 square foot log and stone lodge that boasts spectacular views of the Tennessee River you can take in from the balcony as you watch the sunset against the distant mountainside. This is a place you can disconnect from the world and reconnect with those closest to you. If it is starting to feel like a dream, then you are on the right path, as it is fittingly named Dream Ranch.

Dream Ranch is located just outside of Huntsville and within an hour of Birmingham in Guntersville, Alabama. This convenient location makes it a top destination for weekend getaways, corporate events, weddings, day hunts and captivating experiences without the hassle of extensive travel arrangements. Additionally, Dream Ranch is a few minutes away from one of the nation’s top freshwater fishing destinations, Lake Guntersville, where the staff can arrange for a day of guided bass fishing with a local pro angler.

For the avid outdoorsmen and hunter, Dream Ranch, is quite possibly beyond what you could imagine in the state of Alabama because of the diverse wildlife and habitat along the varying topography. One minute, you may have the opportunity to watch a trophy whitetail buck feed along an acorn covered ridge and the next you may jump up a covey of quail in the best upland bird habitat in the southeast. If you prefer fishing, the property boasts two fully stocked lakes where a typical cast may bring in your largest catch to date. The owner’s passion for wildlife habitat management is evident around each turn in the trail as every acre has been utilized to produce the highest quality hunting conditions to ensure your success.

If you prefer a different style of adventure, the staff has additional opportunities you can enjoy to help settle into the evening festivities. As the sun goes down, turn on the night lights and challenge a friend to a friendly round of sporting clays off the back patio before heading to bed. I can assure you; it will be a blast!

Dream Ranch has the ingredients to help you make memories that will last a lifetime and the southern hospitality to make you feel comfortable enough to kick off your shoes and prop your feet up. At the end of the night, the staff will give you free reins of the 14,000 square foot lodge that will leave you feeling like your dad just threw you the keys to his baby when you turned sixteen. Buckle up. Hold tight. Let your dreams come true.
