About Alabama

Alabama Lake Living

Alabama has an impressive variety of waterfront real estate. From pristine mountain-fed lakes in the northwest, where the Appalachian foothills wind down into the beautiful Cotton State, down to the Gulf of Mexico and its many waterways and bays, Alabama has something for any buyer. There are only around 100 lakes in Alabama, but what the Heart of Dixie lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality. The lakes in Alabama are blessed with diverse topography, tall trees that provide lots of shade, and they enjoy a mild climate year-round, making Alabama one of the best states for lake living. Alabama's lake-goers enjoy excellent fishing, boating, paddling, campgrounds, and more, so whether you're looking for a vacation home, a beautiful, quiet place to retire, or simply to make a wise investment, you needn't look further than Alabama.

Dixieland Delight

Alabama's stunning beauty has inspired songwriters for many years, from Alabama and Lynyrd Skynyrd to Shenandoah and the contemporary Alabama Shakes. This nature lover's paradise includes countless river valleys, sugar white beaches, and a wondrous collection of caverns, caves, and towering mountaintops. Many of the best lakes in Alabama are located in close proximity to its lively major cities or its 22 well-maintained state parks (which encompass over 48,000 acres of land and water). Here on Lakehouse.com, finding your own slice of paradise in the Heart of Dixie has never been easier. With over 1,900 incredible lake properties in Alabama to choose from, including 350 featuring a private lake, pond, or river, you're sure to find exactly what you're searching for.

Sweet Home Alabama

Alabama is indeed a sweet place to call home. Its innumerable rivers and streams feed its lakes year-round with fresh water, and make it one of the greenest, most fertile states in the country. Its temperate climate mixes well with its four distinct seasons, which means that outdoor activities are a go year-round. Alabama has outstanding fishing, boating, and recreational opportunities throughout. In addition, Alabama counts on a low cost of living, delicious Southern cuisine throughout the state, and lots to do whether you're in town or out. The state's capitol, Montgomery, is the third of four major cities in Alabama, with each topping out around 200,000 in total population. The capitol city is famously the preaching home of Martin Luther King Jr., and houses a Civil Rights Memorial and the excellent Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. The city of Birmingham, just to the north, is home to a thriving music scene, complete with country, jazz, and blues musicians. The lively city also boasts its own zoo, botanical garden, and the lovely Red Mountain Park. Down South is the happening beach city of Mobile, where an 1850 Cathedral Basilica overlooks a quiet bay where the imposing and storied WWII battleship still floats. Founded as a French trading port in 1702, the city retains a unique culture from its colonial and maritime past. Throughout the great state are scattered various immaculate and attractive parks, the most loved of which are the Talladega National Forest, Rickwood Caverns State Park, and the immersive Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park.
