About David Marshall
We love travelling, and want to offer our guests the best of the hospitality we've experienced in accommodations in the U.S. and abroad.

David Marshall purchased this Cabin in 2009
Why David Marshall chose Chelsea
When our children grew up and moved away, we relocated to be near a new grandchild! We had to wait over a year to purchase Meadow Lake, but it was well worth it.
What makes this Cabin unique
When we first saw the property we thought it was gorgeous. Then we realized it was for sale, and that there was a possibility of it actually being ours! After a year's wait that became a reality. From the beginning we knew it was not just meant for us--we had to share it with others. Making our Cabin available to guests helps us realize this part of the dream too.

Wonderful, relaxing escape
From my first inquiry email, David was speedy, thorough, flexible and genuinely hospitable.
The location is so relaxing and beautiful. Every detail at the cabin was thought out to make the stay easy, fun and comfortable, both for me and for my mini beagle. It was just heaven enjoying a cup of hot tea on the porch and watching the hummingbirds feed.
The loft bed is super-comfy and the sheets and pillows are super cozy. Like so many other reviewers have mentioned, the place is sparkling clean. I was a little worried such a rustic cabin might be a little musty, but I had zero reason for concern. Everything was great.
I've never stayed at a VRBO so wonderfully appointed. The surprises included a stocked pantry, breakfast options galore, bug spray, nail polish remover and nearby restaurant menus. The Marshalls have thought of everything!
Highly recommended. Can't wait to go back.
Chelsea, AL cabin
We were overwhelmed with the consideration of these hosts. This beautiful cabin was immaculate and filled with things to make one's stay stress-free. The entire environment was relaxing, especially where the hummingbirds were off the front porch. The hosts were readily available, if needed. We eagerly look forward to returning.
Guests like Vicki and Gene could be terrible for business. They were so clean and caring of everything that you want to put them on the payroll, and so genuinely nice and friendly that you wish they were family! We just hope they open a B&B in Pensacola so we can stay with them!!
A slice of heaven!
This is one of the most charming spots I have had the pleasure of staying in. David and Chris are delightful and friendly. I greatly appreciate how organized they are with tags on everything to let you know what things do and where things go. The little kitchen and the special touches down to little chocolates with the keys on the table really made this special. I came with my son to spend time with family and we both enjoyed the pool and the cabin. The bed was very comfortable and the shower works like a dream. Nice pressure and hot water flowed well. There were fresh flowers thoughtfully placed and lots of homey touches that made it seem like I could move right in. Believe me we wanted to stay much longer! I can't say enough good things. It was a fantastic experience and we are going to make it a yearly if not more vacation spot. Thank you David and Chris for opening home and hearts!
Relaxation at its finest
My husband and I enjoyed the cabin immensely. David and Christine did an outstanding job to ensure we were as comfortable as if we were in our own home. They thought of everything and even provided breakfast food and beverages. We would highly recommend this cabin for a most relaxing get away. Thank you both for your gracious hospitality.
Get-A-Way For Family
We rented this cabin for a Family Birthday/Cookout. The surrounding property and the cabin are absolutely beautiful, it looks even better in person than in the pictures. Sitting on the front porch and having coffee of a morning with a lake view and the hummingbirds flying around is a very pleasant experience away from the hustle and bustle of life. David and Chris could not have been better host, they went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable adding all kinds of personal touches such as fresh flowers in the kitchen along with milk, fresh orange juice and all the starters you needed for a meal. They gave us a lot of privacy at the pool the day of our cookout. We had lots of children running around and playing just being kids and it was never a problem, plus the pool was available for us to use our entire stay, and is also very beautifully landscaped. The only thing you will regret staying here is having to leave!! We are hoping to make this an annual trip as our children live close to the cabin.
Our Daughter’s Wedding at Ozan Winery
We enjoyed our stay. Cute Cabin , clean , nice and cool. Enjoyed the front porch swing in the morning with coffee.
But if you have a large vehicle the drive is little small. We have a Ford 150 , had a little trouble turning in road , drive and also backing out drive.
Nita and Chad were fine guests, and I appreciate Nita's reminder. I don't often bring my truck to the Cabin, but I see her point. I'll cut back the branches that are encroaching on the driveway space. Guests who are towing trailers can park these further up the drive near our home.
Meadow Lake Cabin is a great location for venturing into Birmingham for the day, but having a more peaceful place to unwind at the end of the day. Some of our favorite places in Birmingham are the Birmingham Botanical Garden (free!), Aldridge Gardens, Birmingham Zoo, Oak Mountain State Park, Railroad Park, and Sloss Furnace. Birmingham also has great restaurants, small breweries, and entertainment events. If you'd prefer to avoid city traffic, Morgan Creek Vineyards and DeSoto Caverns are just 20 and 30 minutes away to the southeast.
