A beautiful comfortable home for large family vacations.
We just spent a wonderful week at Busbees Retreat with our extended family ages 11 thru 77. Communication with the owners was perfect. The home is spacious, beautiful and clean. It’s a beautiful open floor plan but there were many areas for privacy as well – especially a quiet reading area above the master bedroom.
The kitchen was so well stocked with bakeware, serving dishes, utensils, flat ware, double ovens and we were spoiled by the sheer size and function of the kitchen… and the soft close drawers. There is a large double side refrigerator and a smaller refrigerator in the garage as well. The view is amazing and the kids loved borrowing the kayaks and canoe. My sister and brother in law took my mom around the lake in the canoe in the early morning and she just loved it. There was enough outdoor seating for 11 and it was very comfortable. Indoors there was an extra long table and chairs in the garage which came in handy for the kids to eat at.
The beds were comfy and 3 of the bedrooms had ceiling fans. The central air was great and everyone was comfortable. The downstairs bunk room was comfy and the kids just loved this house so much. (They have all added Guitar Hero and Kayaks to their Christmas lists now). Watching the World Cup on the TV was great – reception was lost a couple of times for a few minutes but our cell phones had service and the wifi was great.
The dock was cool even when the sun was in full force and the ladder down from the dock was about six full steps so it was perfect for most of us. The owners provided great resin deck chairs and some tables for drinks. The water was about 92 degrees all week and it took some getting used to but jumping in the water at 7:30AM was a fun daily activity for all. The neighbors are very nice and the house to the right was also rented for the week. The cove was a bit tight because those renters had two full size boats and two jet skis with them.
Food Lion grocery, ABC Liquor store, Pizza and Chinese is 10 min away. Sign up for a discount card in the grocery store - we saved over $100 on sale items by sharing a temporary card all week.
Thank you to Jeff and Julea for opening your home to big families. My parents were so happy to have this time with their children and grandchildren.
Beautiful property and layout! Has everything you need.
We had a great weekend at the house. The property is beautiful with great views of the lake, and a dock that is accessible for small boats and jet skis. We will be returning in the future!
We all had a super time
The lovely house worked out really well for our extended family of 11. When it rained there was lots to do inside. The owners respond very quickly. All in all we would highly recommend Busbees retreat.
Beautiful getaway on a lake
This home was wonderful. It has a spacious kitchen that can fit a bunch of cooks in the kitchen. Plenty of places to sleep and nice finishes in the house.
Beautiful home and setting
We had a wonderful time. Beautiful home and fantastic communication with the homeowner. We look forward to coming back sometime.
One of the THE most beautiful properties on the lake with THE most supportive staff!!!
Our group of ladies came together to enjoy a long weekend away to relax and unwind....thanks to Busbee's Retreat, we were able to enjoy our time away in complete comfort!!! The estate is beautifully laid out to give large groups PLENTY of space to enjoy privately or congregate in groups. The kitchen is large and complete with wine fridge! The bedrooms were perfectly situated to accommodate all of us but the real showstopper was the lakeside view!!!! The dock was our little piece of heaven to relax and enjoy some of the rare sunlight this spring!!! Those of us that enjoy activities had plenty of toys to play with as there are floats, 2 kayaks and a canoe to enjoy....I brought my paddleboard as well and we hit the water often! Saturday evening was the perfect chance to enjoy the LARGE open firepit and s'mores never tasted so good!!! The owners went above and beyond for us, not only invited us into their lovely estate but also in accommodating some of our special needs as well as leaving us a Welcome Care Package complete with a bottle of wine from the local vineyard! We didn't just fall in love with Busbee's....we are passionate about this jewel on the water!!!
