The home was comfortable and very nicely decorated with a country theme

  • 4 of 5

Our family really enjoyed the pool and had a great time. We enjoyed the privacy and location of the home. A few updates on decks would be a nice improvement. Overall it was a great time.

Guys Trip

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our stay. The pool was great, house was clean, and it's tucked perfectly away in its own little section of the hillside. Plenty of outdoor space with the 3tier deck. We had some rain so the covered porches on the front and back of the property were perfect. The owners were very quick to respond to any inquiries and I can't stress enough how importance that it is when renting for the first time. Thanks Chris and Sandy!

Stay 7/12-19/2014

  • 4 of 5

We had a really good time. The cabin was spacious and nice. My only concerns were: no lighting when going down the stairs to pool area. It appears there were lights at one time but on one the cover was off and actually was painted over. The stairs need to be redone. There were a couple boards that may be coming loose and especially with older people or actually younger kids it was a bit scary for them to go down without help (night time was not good - we used our cell phone lights). Also there is no railing on the porch on the side of the cabin. I actually did not go out there but we had some family members come by and it was a concern for them. I know this isn't anything you can change but something that could have been better - the bathroom situation. We had the 3 bedrooms being used so for the couple in the basement the bathroom with no access from hall was a problem. Even though we were all family going in someone's bedroom in the middle of the night isn't always the best. But all in all everything was good. Will keep in mind for future plans. Actual stay - arrival 7/12 - would not allow me to change the date.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you did not find the lights for the deck. There are 6 lights that light up the entire area on two separate switches. I suggest any of my guests call if there are any questions during their stay. I appreciate your honesty. I'm sorry the arrangements did not work out well for your family. We typically recommend 3 families maximum so each family can share a full bathroom.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at your home in Byrdstown. The house was set up perfectly for our family. We spent time at Sunset Marina and Starpoint Marina. We used the grill every night and the kitchen had everything you could need for your stay. We spent every night out on the deck playing corn hole and playing cards. The pool was wonderful for all ages!! Thank you again for opening up your home for our vacation this year!!! Would love to visit again soon!!!

Great Family Friendly Place

  • 5 of 5

Our family has gone to this house the last two years. We are returning for our third year in the summer and have plans to keep coming. We have young children, and the private pool is awesome. The updated grill last summer was much appreciated. My Father-In-Law has always booked the house for our family and has commented on how kind the owners are. We normally have 5 adults and 4 kids and there is more than enough room. Everything is always clean, orderly, and well kept. We would recommend this home especially if you are wanting to mainly lounge in the sun, dip in the pool, and enjoy the stars. Quite peaceful.
