Yellow Branch Plantation
A uniquely beautiful setting as well as a magnificent home makes Yellow Branch Plantation an extraordinary property gem. A pristine lake with water sports for all, exhilarating trails for hiking and biking, and a house that is elegant with a charmed rustic flare. We have annual family reunions - this was our most memorable one! The owners were most accommodating and easy to reach. Highly recommend this property. ”
We had a very peaceful time at The Yellow Branch Plantation. It was a gorgeous setting and no one insight. Angie was extremely helpful with advanced information. My husband was recovering from surgery and it was the exact way to relax. We had a SUV and that is what you need, to visit the barn where weddings can and do occur. We walked from the house around the flag pole five times and that was equivalent to about a mile. The kitchen was perfect and we had our meals in the small niche off to the side. We grilled most evenings and the grill was easy to use. The home was decorated beautifully. We do suggest you take your groceries and drinks because you are a good distance from operations. It was a very pleasant trip. Thank you Milah and Steve Lynn”
One of our favorite vacations!
Yellow Branch Plantation exceeded our expectations. It was our first time visiting Alabama and definitely not our last! Angie was great at giving us information on things to do in the area. We went into Birmingham one day but decided that the property and home were just so fun that we didn't want to leave again. The house is so accommodating with everything you could possible need from the inside out. From the Polaris to the jet ski, floats and kayaks, we really didn't need anything else to entertain us! The fishing in the lake was phenomenal and probably our favorite activity on the property. The inside of Yellow Branch is so comfortable and cozy and cooking in the kitchen was my favorite! We are so delighted that we found such a special home and cannot wait to go back!”
