Amazing home with a fantastic view and friendly locals

  • 5 of 5

Mr. John’s home is amazing. It’s spacious enough for two families to stay and have plenty of room. The lake is serene and helps you unwind. The locals are friendly and the town is only 15 minutes away. I would suggest writing down your directions/address before coming because if you are using your phone GPS, the service is spotty. Mr. John has WiFi and a home phone so you aren’t totally disconnected from the world. Lots of memories have been made here on this vacation and we are planning the next one.

Beautiful vacation home with lots of room!

  • 5 of 5

I have never rented anything site unseen until this vacation and I was not disappointed. I came from Florida to do a surprise 70th birthday party for my brother who lives in Tennessee. There was plenty of room to entertain with the large deck and sun room. We had a group of six adults and two children staying at the lake house. There were plenty of beds for everyone. The master bed was very comfortable, it is on the top floor. The 2nd and 3rd bedroom is down stairs. The 2nd bedroom had a king bed. The 3rd bedroom with the bunk bed/trundle worked great for my son and grandsons. So sleeping arrangements were perfect. It was cold when we were there and the fireplace worked great. I like to cook a big breakfast with bacon, eggs, fried taters, gravy and homemade biscuits when I have my family together. The kitchen could use some large skillets and pans. We made do though. Most people probably don't cook when they go on vacation anyway! My son brought the two tiny fishing poles for the grandsons age 2 and 5. They went to the dock and the five year old caught two big catfish. They were larger than the fishing pole. My son caught two also. We turned them loose but they sure had a fun time bringing them in. I will treasure the memories we made there. This is a lovely place to stay and well worth the price. I highly recommend this lake house.

Great getaway for us.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time just relaxing and enjoying the lake. Dogs loved the lake. Living area is upstairs! Outside stairs are easiest to manage. Great bed. Slept sound. Back enclosed porch is wonderful. Loved taking a nap out there. Nice neighborhood. Walked the dogs daily. It was perfect for us to just get away and relax.
