Wonderful home for large family with teens

  • 5 of 5

This home is well appointed, comfortable and spacious. We had 10 teenagers and they loved the game room, the private lake and proximity to a great diving hole in Murphy's. The home is clean and well stocked. Do bring your own sandwich bags, napkins and plastic wrap/foil if you use those items. We paid for the linen service and it was great to arrive to a home full of made beds. Craig was informative and welcoming as we arrived and followed up after our stay to check in. We were well taken care of. The Lakemont Pines community is quiet and friendly. Clearly a place where generations of families come to relax and play. The lake was wonderful - clear and comfortable, and the darling club house offered a snack bar, ping pong, corn hole, kayaks, paddle boats. We brought our own kayaks and also used those provided at the home. There was plenty to do for kids of all ages. This is a dog friendly property and our poochies loved walking around the lake every day. We look forward to coming again and hope to stay at this home again.

Beautiful setting, but house needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

While the setting was undeniably beautiful, the cabin itself was a bit dated and the furnishings old and worn. Also, the kitchen could have been cleaner. The place is huge, which is a plus if you have a large party. But the toilet in the back bathroom has a sticky flapper problem. Why? Why is this not fixed? It's like a $5 part. And beware of many stairs. I know mountain cabins have stairs because of snowfall, but If you have problems with stairs, you don't want to stay here. The lack of air conditioning can be a problem, especially upstairs in the master bedroom, as the summer temperatures can climb into the high 80s in the mountains. The igniter on the gas grill did not work and we were forced to light the grill with a lighter that was provided, which in my opinion is a safety issue. Get a new wire brush for the grill. The one provided was so disgusting that I couldn't bring myself to use it. I also could not believe the number of remote controls that were provided for the living room. This is a vacation rental. It should be easy to watch TV, like, turn it on and watch it, not have to call tech support (the owner) which nobody wants to do in normal life, not to mention while on vacation. Everybody did enjoy the pool table, and the kayak and canoe were a big hit with the kids. The lake is awesome and the neighborhood is very quiet. But....beware of other vacation renters. Lakemont Pines is filled with vacation rentals, and the day before we were leaving, another party moved in up the hill, and they were EXTREMELY loud and rowdy until 1:00 in the morning!

Welcoming spacious cabin on the beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this spacious, fully equipped house on a big lot with tons of pine trees. You can't beat the location: it's within walking distance to a clean warm lake where you can swim. The location is quiet and peaceful. There are neighboring houses, but you generally can't hear any noise.

The house has many rooms with multiple bedrooms and cozy beds. The furniture is comfortable, the house is very well decorated. There are many board games for adults and toys for the little ones. Rent includes access to a private wonderful lake, which is a great bonus which we used every single day.

There is a shopping center with a large grocery store a few minutes away on a car and nice restaurants / coffee shops in Murphys.

The owner takes pride in making sure that his guests will enjoy the stay. Everything is in working order. The home is well maintained and all equipment is fully operational. Internet is fast and Wifi is available in every room. There is also cable TV with TV sets in every bedroom. For the duration of our week-long stay, we didn't have a single issue and never had to contact the owner for any troubleshooting.

Thank you, Craig, our three-generational family enjoyed our stay in your welcoming house!

Great place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Craig thank you so much for opening your home to us. Our family needed some quiet down time to enjoy each other and nature. Your home was the perfect place for all of us, young and old. The house is exactly as described. Large, clean, well stocked and close to the lake. Your availability was also nice to have if needed. Thank you again. We hope to visit again to make more memories.
