Natural Wonders/Outdoor Fun

The area of northwestern Alabama known as The Shoals is home to countless natural wonders and recreational opportunities.

With the splendid Tennessee River and its gorgeous lakes, Pickwick, Wheeler and Wilson, fishing and boating activities abound. The hotel features sixteen boat hookups for fishermen.

World class golf is available at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at the Shoals and its two 18-hole championship courses, “The Fighting Joe” and “The Schoolmaster.”

ColdWater Falls, a man-made lighted waterfall, situated at head of Spring Park in downtown Tuscumbia, was constructed with more than 2,000 of tons of local sandstone. It stretches 80 feet wide and 42 feet tall. 4.3 million gallons of water pass over the falls each day.

Ten miles of hiking, walking, jogging and biking trails are available to the public on the TVA Reservation located in Muscle Shoals and Sheffield. Nature and wildflower walks are scheduled on a regular basis. A six mile-bike trail winds through historic downtown Sheffield. Fifteen miles of hiking trails are maintained in Cane Creek Canyon Nature Preserve, located just a few miles from Tuscumbia.

The Old Railroad pedestrian bridge in Sheffield is 1,580 feet long and 14 feet high, offering a beautiful view of the Tennessee River.

The beautiful Natchez Trace Parkway, a short distance to the west, is a designated bicycle route.


  • SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY AT ITS BEST - The front desk employees were beyond pleasurable, loved their southern hospitality. Location was great as well! Breakfast was amazing and when we checked in, we were offered cookies and lemonade. Lovely!

  • GREAT HOTEL! Although new it has period decor. The staff were very welcoming and there was a manager's complimentary reception every night we stayed - free drinks and eats. The room was quiet despite the hotel being on the main road. There was also a nice pool/bbq area to the rear which was a nice place to relax.

  • The hotel was easy to find and very close to the sights that we wanted to visit. Everything was clean and inviting including the continental breakfast and the evening hospitality hour.
