Neighbors are friendly and have that down home southern hospitality. Feel free to take an early morning jog or walk around the subdivision. Tell them you are staying at John's Country Lake Home !!

My name is John and I live in Los Angeles California with my wife and our 3 kids . We purchased the lake house about 8 years ago for family and friends to enjoy. We have since come to the realization that this place is like heaven on earth!! A great place to create lasting memories for families and friends .
John Helm purchased this house in 2007
Great location , beautiful country.
Loved staying in this beautiful house on the lake. Fished everyday and caught several. Grilled out on the gas grill some and cooked breakfast every morning. Very nice appliances. Only ate out one time. My favorite place was sitting in the sun room looking out over the lake and reading or playing cards and games at night. Very quite neighborhood and relaxing atmosphere. Beds are very comfortable. Only complaint we have was the downstairs shower is very small. John was very accommodating and April the caretaker was nice. Highly recommend this place!!!
We stayed for just a couple of nights at the end of July, 2016. The property was great. Left nothing to be desired. Nothing stood out as different than advertised. Well equipped kitchen. Clean. The lake and dock were great. A nice, small beach nearby. The caretaker and owner were both good and very responsive both leading up to and during the stay.
Very nice Home very large on the inside except for down stairs shower its a little on the small side but the views of the water make all little inconveniences melt away... The area is out in the country and is very peace full and quiet.. Pool table was in the garage and it does stay cool in their for u to enjoy.. Plenty of life jackets for you to use to float around in the lake on. Your stereo rocks John and the Music that was left in the cd Player also :)..Their are no lounge chairs for sun bathing on the huge upstairs side deck so we used our blow up mattress that worked out great for the wife.. and even better as a floaty on the lake.. All in all I would recommend this property if you are looking for a quiet week or weekend on a nice lake. P.S. April is the care taker of this property and also rents a pontoon and jet skis if you are interested which made our experience that much better but if you have your own boat their is plenty of parking on the property and the boat launch is right down the road. Thank again John and April for a memorable weekend..See u next year :)
First, thank you John for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home and responding quickly to any questions. Also, thank you April for your help and hospitality, it was our pleasure meeting you.
I can't say enough about this home and the pictures do not do it justice. Six of us stayed in this clean, lovely home. The grounds are groomed, the neighborhood is quiet and although it is located on an all sports lake, it is quiet with very few people.
The house itself is perfect with all the comforts of home. We loved the many windows overlooking scenic views of the lake. We did not have to leave to enjoy ourselves . We chose to eat out but the kitchen is spacious enough to prepare any meal.
We fished, swam, tubed by the shoreline, and rented a jet ski from April, the caretaker. We also enjoyed playing pool downstairs.
If you have time, visit Beale Street in Memphis. The sights and sounds of this iconic attraction makes for a great evening out.
If you're looking to relax in beautiful, quiet surroundings you have found it . It was perfect and we hope to return. Thank you again John for sharing your home.
We had an incredibly relaxing time at John's house. From central AC to the pool table and sun porch, we had plenty to do around the house to cool off from the heat. The swimming area by the dock is awesome with just a few shells and twigs that you have to watch for. With 6 adults, 3 children, and 2 dogs, we had plenty of space to relax. The big dining room table was a great place for cards and the covered patio was a gathering spot every evening. All the amenities were in good working condition and the caretaker of the property was responsive to any issues but also left us alone to have a good time. We would definitely come back and highly recommend this place to anyone.
The grounds are lovely, the dock is useful and the house is very spacious! We had 8 people in and out during our stay and the house is spacious enough to accommodate everyone. The kitchen has everything you need should you decide to cook. Nice entertainment system in the huge main living room. The "sun room" is so nice with all the windows that over look the lake yet it is the coolest room in the house! We rented a jet ski from April, who is the caretaker of the property, and we had so much fun running the lake! April and Randall are so kind and helpful, if you need anything at all just call them! We are considering renting the property again in the future as it is a good meeting place for my family to have some time together. I have 2 pieces of advice for anyone coming with a larger group.....there are only 2 bathrooms so you have to schedule strategically and if you have any cold blooded members in your party, make sure you bring your own blankets! Such a wonderful time!!!!! Thanks John, April and Randall!
