Great Buck Lodge is the perfect place for a family reunion. We came to the lodge for a summer escape from work and the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
We had eleven people in our party and the lodge was a perfect escape. The three different areas of the lodge meant that each family could have quiet time. But upstairs, we all had room to gather together. Outside, we had ping pong, checkers, horseshoes, and a fire pit for s’mores…. all were on site for us to use. The large open yard also gave us space to set up our volleyball/badminton net for hours of family fun and fitness.
The accommodations inside were beautiful. Everything we needed was there for our comfort and convenience. For example, each of the three kitchens had its own coffee pot (this was important for our family!) and all other appliances and utensils. If you are on a budget, eating “at home” at the lodge can save you so much money.
Also, before we arrived, we had so many questions about what was there, and what we needed to bring that we often contacted the owners with our questions. They quickly and patiently answered all our concerns so that we did not have to”over-pack” things that we did not need.
The surrounding area in Ft. Payne, Alabama has so much to do for the lover of the great outdoors. Although we felt like we were in our own remote, private lodge, we were not far from shopping, restaurants, or my favorite- hiking and nature. We checked “Trip Advisor” for all the activities we enjoyed.
We have nothing but great memories of our trip to the Great Buck Lodge. We would whole heartedly recommend it for families and friends who wish to enjoy their time together and this area of Alabama.

Room Tip: We rented the entire home- eight bedrooms, four baths and three kitchens. It was heavenly for our family!
