Beautiful Lake & Mountain Views from your front Porch

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with another couple~We brought our own blow up & but was an enjoyable stay for all. The Big front porch was our favorite hang out place when the guys weren't fishing or us girls site seeing. Very tranquil & relaxing especially with the Hot Tub.

The Peace & Quiet was just what we all needed to rejuvenate!

If I had a complaint~it would be the distance to the water from this cabin~It was my fault thinking directly on the water~But the brief walk was enjoyable.

Was easy to book & I've already gotten my deposit back as well. Enjoyable Relaxing Stay!

Beautiful, relaxing retreat!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Driftwood Cottage for 3 nights and it was just what we needed. My husband had been hiking the Appalachian Trail and was taking a few zero days to rest and recuperate. Even though there were several outdoor activities to do here at the lake (boating, fishing, hiking, etc.), we chose to just take in the view from the big porch, enjoy the quiet, and relax. The hot tub is a great perk. It worked wonderfully and is secluded on the the side of the cottage for privacy. The cottage was well stocked with kitchen needs. It is small, but plenty of room for two or a small family. The cottage is quite a ways from any stores (30-45 mins), so your best bet is to bring whatever you need with you and just enjoy the lake. We would love to come again and stay at some point.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Overall I absolutely loved this cabin, it was a dream to be able to stay on a lake in the mountains. On the days we weren’t hitting the slopes we were kicking back in the hot tub and enjoying the lake! Thank you for a wonderful spring vacation!

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A nice spot on the lake. The large covered porch is perfect for lake watching and hearing the ducks as they fly over. The hot tub was heavenly! Really! Good spot for it, on side of home, so it's private. Nice large clean gas grill (gas knob is underneath grill) which was nice for a steak. The lake was quiet, but sooo nice. Very comfortable home. Has internet and Direct TV if you need a distraction. Nice easy access with a nice view...no driving to top of mountain. Will probably plan another visit!

Good location, great view. Enjoyed the hot tub. But not a 4 star rental.

  • 3 of 5

Not sure how this rental got such high ratings. Over all, it wasn’t a bad place to stay. The view is the best around, the hot tub was great and the location was good. There were however some things that need to be addressed. Upon arrival and entering the unit there was a VERY strong odor that smelled like someone had recently (with in 30 minutes) smoked a joint(marijuana). Tried to dismiss it as maybe it was cleaning chemicals. Pretty sure it wasn’t the chemicals. The sliding glass door will open when locked with a slight amount of pull. There was a stick that was cut to fit in the track but you had look for it. It was leaning against the wall behind the couch. There were cobwebs in the bathroom. If you are planning on cooking here bring your own cook ware because theirs is not safe to cook with. Our experience wasn’t bad but we felt this was not a 4+ star rental. We would stay here again but be better prepaired.
