Overall we had a decent stay. It is a nice house with plenty of room for large parties. However, we had to make multiple trips to the store for things we feel should have been provided such as hand soap, dish soap, toilet paper, and paper towels. The hand soap in the bathrooms and the dish soap in the kitchen were layered with different kinds/colors of old soap with chunks at the bottom. With a house that accommodates 18 people, there was only 1 roll of toilet paper in each bathroom (some already half used).
Only 1 roll of paper towels were provided for a 5 day stay.
There is a very limited amount of wash cloths. Definitely not enough for each guest to have their own wash cloth. In the welcome binder it was requested that guests do not use wash cloths to remove make up and that make up remover wipes are provided. Remover wipes were not provided and we had to use paper towels to remove make up.
The thermostat is locked and guests have no control over the temperature. The property manager was very accommodating when contacted after hours to turn the temperature up to make the stay more comfortable.
We were looking forward to fishing but found the boat is not available for rent during the time of year we stayed.
There is no TV in the common area of the main floor but there is a TV in the basement with a good amount of seating.
We enjoyed our stay but were disappointed with a few details.
We want to thank you for your honest review and for bringing these issues to our attention. We will talk with the house cleaners to ensure that each house is properly stocked.
The thermostats are locked to prevent units from not heating and cooling properly due to multi zone systems being set to conflicting settings from guest not familiar with our systems. We try to have the temperatures set to a comfortable setting on arrival, and can easily adjust them to suit guests needs.
We are on a TVA controlled lake that is drawn down in the Winter for flood control and try to have water toys available from April to October depending on water availability to our dock.
Once again We want to thank you for staying with us and hope you will come back to see us again in the future!
our bestest family vacation yet!
We stay at a VRBO property 1-2 times per year with our family, we all agreed this was the best family vacation we’ve had.
Josh was fantastic, responsive prior to and during our stay.
Couple things to note:
Rent the boat with the house if available. The closest marina is Swans, they are very nice but do not have 24 hour rentals or jet skis, and their boats are older. Indian Creek has jet skis and pontoon boat rentals and they are closer than H20, but do not offer 24 hour rental on boats. The house is located on a windy and gravel road, pretty far in from the main road. Rent the golf cart, the hill to the dock is too steep for young and old. Dock was a lot of fun, enjoyed the paddle boards and kayaks available at the house.
Very impressed with the quality of the decor and linens, plush towels and soft sheets and thick pillows. Plenty of room for 18 people, having the second refrigerator was helpful for a large family. Loved the view of the lake from the house, the pool was a bit colder than the lake and even though we shared it with 5 families we never felt like we were on top of one another. Take your own fishing gear. One more thing to note, the houses sit on a steep hill, one of the homes was not usable because the ground below was not safe, we were next to that house and even though it wasn’t pleasant to look at, we weren’t concerned with our safety at all. We haven’t stayed at the same house twice in ten years of traveling, but will definitely be back to this one again.
Great to hear you all enjoyed your stay. We would be happy to have you back anytime!
Great spot for celebration vacations
We spent a week with our entire family to celebrate our 50th anniversary and it was wonderful. The space was perfect for our large family (6 adults and 7 children). There was lots to do for the children and adults. The boards for stand-up paddling we a huge hit as were the kayaks. Everyone also enjoyed playing in the lake. The infinity pool was also popular with the entire family for swimming and playing in the water. The hot tub was very nice and great for soaking!
The house is well-supplied with lots of towels and Linens. And the Kitchen is well-stocked with cookware and lots of china, glassware and cutlery. An added bonus is the foosball table downstairs
Needless to say, we had a fabulous vacation with no whining about the lack of something to do! Josh and his team have done a great job with Smokey Mountain Villas!
So happy to hear you all had such a good time. It was our pleasure to host your group, we hope to see you again in the future.
Wonderful Lake house for group
Thanks so much for a fantastic stay! Josh was so accommodating and helpful! The house itself was perfect! Lots of room for everyone in our group. The house was well stocked with everything we needed. The boat rental and all the extras provided down at the dock was so fun! My only suggestion would be to rent the golf cart, which we did not.
Glad you all enjoyed your stay!
Spacious, clean, beautiful view, great for a large group, access to lots of activities to do!
Thanks for the perfect place for our 4 families to meet! There were plenty of beds and a bathroom for each family. We appreciated that each room had its own TV and that the kids all had a place to hang out in the lower great room. The kitchen table was large enough to host lots of meals and games morning and night!. We were only missing a couple basics, but each time Josh was easily accessible. Comfortable beds, clean towels and linens. Suggested a vacuum to quickly clean up as needed (which is often when there are 16 people). But overall, excellent experience, and would definitely consider this beautiful home away from home again!
Glad you had fun, thanks for staying with us!
Great House and a wonderful setting with views overlooking the lake.

Glad you all enjoyed the house and the lake. We hope to see you again!
