About Property Manager
We love this area for family and friend getaways. We built this home in 1995 and have been enjoying and adding amenities ever since.... I'm custom home builder. Top season is from Memorial to Labor Day, but a great value year round and holidays! Our immediate family and extended family visit often. With capacity to spread out (and/or rent the adjacent home for extra large gathering) on three floor with private areas when needed, this is an awesome time away in the mountains and on the lake!

100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Tubs did not drain, doors did not open close properly, mold on wood decks, holes in the siding off decks, several door trim not finished or painted, doors off the deck is rotten and very difficult to open close, I have pictures
I'm very sorry for the items you had issues with. We had a significant water heater leak earlier and major repairs were done on the main and lower floors, however some items were not 100% painted due to contractor and timing issues with the season start.
The decks get power washed and painted every 3-4 years and unfortunately we are at the end of the current cycle. We will modify the cleaning schedule to better address this issue.
We replaced two doors on the side of the home and have plans to replace the rear doors as well. Our decision was budgetary and believed the rear doors were fine, just not great.
A new roof was installed this season and the siding you reference is next on the list.
Tub drains should certainly drain freely and were working perfectly at the beginning of the summer. I will take care to have our cleaning contractor closely monitor this in the future and sorry for the inconvenience. I would have sent maintenance to correct this issue had I been notified.
Please feel free to send me the pictures you reference to assist in my correction of these concerns.
Please feel free to contact me directly to discuss anything.
Thank you for your comments and we will strive to improve each and every concern.

Nice house on a beautiful lake, but some things could be better
We recently spent a week at the Briarcliff Lodge. There are many positives to this property. The location is very good allowing you to go into Cashiers for groceries, shopping, or dining out. The lake is gorgeous. The view of the lake is obstructed by trees except from the top level. The walk to the dock can be a little tricky for young children or older adults. We rented a pontoon boat two days and the kids loved tubing and knee boarding. There is plenty of room in the house for at least 10 people. It is well equipped and was clean. When we rented this place we did not know it was a duplex with a shared dock. Our neighbors for the week were very nice and we had no problems. Sometimes someone would avoid going to the dock because there were so many people on it. I could see how with certain groups this could be a problem. The parking is not the best. It is a little difficult getting in and out close to the house, but we parked in the parking lot of the restaurant next door. There were a couple of unusual circumstances that probably would not normally occur. The previous renters had left the place in a mess ( and damaged a couple of doors) so the maids were not able to let us in on time. Also roofers were there two days pounding on the roof all day.
Thank you for your comments and observations. I am happy that overall things were good. Were are planning to construct added parking in addition to the three spots already available. The steepness of our mountain setting does make it tight for cars
The doors being damaged by the prior guests was unfortunate and I am very sorry for the inconvenience. The roof was intended to be complete long before your arrival, a late storm in the spring did damage and once started the roof contractor ran into more rain delays.
This is the first time ever the 4 pm arrival time could not be met. Our cleaning contractor called me to alert me to the situation but was unable to correct all the issues by 4 pm.
Feel free to contact me directly to discuss anything else. We frequently have had repeat guests and hope you plan to visit again.

Comfortable - felt like home!
Lots of room for a family gathering - each family had their own room and bath - best place yet we've gathered. Very well appointed, scenic area with close grocery and shopping - and the owner was very accommodating, super nice and easy to work with. Would like to stay in the summer to enjoy lake activities.
Cool weather/ Fine Dining within 20 minutes, Shopping at Cashiers or The Highlands, Restaurants (did I already mention dining), Boat/Jet Skiing (All from your dock out back, craft rental by others)
