Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family of 11 2/3. It was close to the Eagle Cove Marina so we brought our pontoon and was able to access the water easily. The owners had suggested to us, that even though the kitchen is well stocked with staples, utensils, pots, etc. and there is a grocery store in neighboring Byrdstown, bring your own food-great advice because it is a distance to that store! Owners promptly responded to my every question. Many thanks for the opportunity to have a great vacation in your home!

Perfect for large family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and the kitchen was well stocked. We used the gas grill to cook dinner each night. It was easy to rent boats at the near by marinas(Sunset Marina and Eagle Cove Marina). The young adult/teens and dogs enjoyed the basement with ping pong table while the adults had rooms on the main level and loft. We also enjoyed sitting on the deck in the evenings. It was a nice layout to allow family to gather or have some privacy. The owners were wonderful to work with! I am sure we will visit the cabin again in the future!

Wonderful cabin in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay over Labor Day Weekend for the Snyder family reunion. The cabin was large enough to accommodate all of us and the floor plan allowed for some privacy. There is very little pantry type storage in the kitchen so we set stuff out around the fireplace. The kitchen was stocked well but I was glad I took my large skillet. There are small kitchen appliances available (blender, griddle, etc.). We were close to town and the marina. Plenty of parking available. All in all, a great place.

great house

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home at Dale Hollow. It is so close to the Eagle Cove Marina! The kitchen is small and very little room for food storage, but we made our own "pantry" out of the big boxes we brought our food down in. The layout of the floor plan worked well. We had 7 kids (ages 15-10) staying in the basement and the 3 adult couples in the bedrooms on the main floor and upstairs. The upstairs bedroom doesn't have a door or anything to close off from the noise on the main level but other than that it was very spacious. Recommendation for owner would be to have a spatula in the kitchen. The wooden spatula was all we could find and made flipping eggs difficult (but also comical)! We would definitely stay at this home again. We have stayed in many different houses at Dale Hollow over the years and this is definitely one we would consider coming back to. There is a washer and dryer and a working grill also at this home. The beds were very comfortable too. We had 3 full size trucks each with a boat and trailer and we all fit perfectly in the driveway, which is always a plus! Thank you for allowing us to make memories at your home in 2015. We look forward to possibly staying there again in the future.

Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home!!! Close to Eagle Cove Marina, plenty of parking for trailers and boat. Loved the layout of the cabin, kids in the basement and adults upstairs. Kids enjoyed the ping pong table. Home was very welcoming and family friendly. Our families will definately be making this cabin a part of our Dale Hollow trips in the future. Mr. James was a pleasure to work with, he was always very prompt in answering any and all questions we had about the cabin. Perfect for multiple families.
