Bobby's Bama: Seven Springs Lodge and Rattlesnake Saloon

TUSCUMBIA, AL (WAFF) - The Seven Springs Lodge and the Rattlesnake saloon in Tuscumbia offers a weekend getaway that's not too far from home.

You can take a horseback ride and sleep on a bunk bed that's in a old grain silo.

Inside the lodge, you'll see a filer deer chandelier that the owner, Danny Foster, said was given to him from a friend in Miami. The fireplace, though, is made from local rock and there are precious Foster family heirlooms that decorate the room.

"The gun has been in my family seven generations. The gun doesn't even have a name on it, it's hand made," said Foster.

His grandfather first bought the land, and now they own 3,000 acres.

In addition to the lodge, there are rooms in converted grain silos. The first floor has a bed, microwave, fridge, TV and more. The second floor has two rooms with bunk beds for the kids, and there is a communal bathroom in a smaller silo.

There's a pool for families to enjoy, and the saloon and restaurant are located in the mouth of a cave in the side of a mountain, offering a great view and a unique experience.

Rattlesnake Saloon at Seven Springs Lodge is open most Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
