vacation rental description

This exceptionally quiet and private gated estate adjoins your own 40-acre fishing, canoeing, wildlife habitat and duck roost. There is a cascading stream of several small waterfalls. We have a horse riding ring (bring your own horses). There is a medium size soccer field (110 X 70 yards). There are great walking trails and open fields. You can hike or ride horses or mountain bikes on some adjoining lands for hours. Picnic by the edge of the lake or atop one of the grandest ridges in Central Alabama.

Ducky Swamp Farm is four minutes from the renowned Shoal Creek Golf Club, site of two PGA Majors and the annual Regions Tradition Seniors Masters tournament held every early June. Tee times at Shoal Creek can be arranged with advance planning.

Also nearby are the two fabulous Greystone Club Courses.

Just 25 minutes down 280 is the world-renowned Farmlinks golf course. A charter member of the Southern Living Hotel Collection and home of the number-one public golf course in Alabama and ranked among Golf Digest top national golf resorts, this pristine, 3,500-acre destination is located at Pursell Farms in Sylacauga, Alabama.

We are just ten miles from the amazing Barber Motorsports Park and Museum. This ten-year-old racetrack holds the 2014 Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama April 25-27. The track has hosted numerous motorsport races including Grand-Am, Vintage Racing Series events, and AMA Superbike. It serves as the home of the 'Porsche Driving Experience' and the Kevin Schwantz Suzuki School. The museum has over 1200 vintage and modern motorcycles and racing cars. It is considered the largest motorcycle museum in the world, as well as the largest collection of Lotus race cars. The motorcycle collection includes bikes dating from 1904 to present production. About half of the 1200 motorcycles are on display at any given time. The entire Barber Motorsports property is an awesome sight to behold and is proclaimed the greatest race track in the world by many champion drivers and motorcycle racers.

Make this master-crafted house and lands your own resort. Even if you just like to walk around in natural surroundings your visit to DSF will be a truly rewarding time for you and your friends and family. With room in the house for up to 12 guests nightly, there is room to roam around the farm lake and trails to find the beautiful solitude you have been missing in your hectic life.

Fishing, boating, mountain biking, cycling, horse riding, enjoying the very quiet and private surrounds just a 20 minute drive to Birmingham! The beautiful 40-acre private fishing lake has canoes and paddle boats for your use! Bring your rods and reels for fine fishing. This lake is a Duck Refuge. In winter hundreds of ducks roost here.There are year-round Wood Ducks and Oct-Feb migrating ducks roosting here. I watch hundreds of Mallards, Woodies and Ringnecks coming in to roost every evening in late fall and winter. Spectacular.

traveler reviews for this birmingham estate rental

Amazing

Review submitted: April 27, 2014   Date of arrival: April 14, 2014

This place was absolutely beautiful. It FAR exceeded our expectations. The listing is accurate, although it understates the beauty of the home and the landscape. We would highly recommend this location to anyone looking for an absolutely beautiful, extremely quiet place to get away. Not only that, but it is only a short drive from many restaurants and shops. The owner was fantastic.Very friendly.

Loved, loved, loved it!!!

Review submitted: February 18, 2014   Date of arrival: February 15, 2014

This estate is absolutely beautiful! Hand crafted with a lot of love. Beautiful inside and out. Wake up early to see the sunrise through the magnificent bedroom windows. The house has SO MANY wonderful features!! Enjoy the out of doors - beautiful lake, ducks, canoeing, fishing. It was a wonderful time for our whole family! Thanks Sid! I don't know why anyone would not absolutely love this place!!
