Mount Vernon house description
Come enjoy Lake Bob Sandlin, the pine trees, unparalleled views and serenity in this wonderful waterfront lake house! You have excellent views of the lake from the living room, the master bedroom, and of course from the wrap around deck. You can supervise your children swimming while you sunbathe or grill steaks on the deck!
We are located only minutes from Mount Vernon and Mount Pleasant where you can find shopping, restaurants and a movie theater. You are close enough to Canton and First Monday Trade Days if you’d like to spend a day there! We are just around the corner from Vaughan’s Catfish Cabin (all you can eat of course!) and from Lake Bob Sandlin State Park. Other attractions include: Old Train Depot Museum , Franklin County Historical Society Museum, Majors-Parchman House Museum, Franklin County Arts Alliance Museum/Gallery, Franklin County Farmers Market, Cypress Springs Berry/Tree Farm and a driving tour of 50 historical homes/buildings.
This lake home is only minutes away from Bob Sandlin State Park where you can find a boat ramp. You can even fish off your own private pier. (The boat house belongs to the neighbor so please stay away from that.) We also have a fire pit by the lake if you’d like to sit around the campfire and roast marshmallows in the evening. Please note this is not a constant level lake. During periods of little or no rain, the lake waters may recede substantially.
This home comfortably sleeps 11. Arrangements include one bedroom down with one queen bed and one single over double bunk bed. There is one bedroom upstairs with one queen bed, one double bed and one futon that makes into a double bed. There is one bathroom upstairs and one bathroom downstairs.
The kitchen is fully equipped with pots and pans and cooking utensils. It has an electric stove with a range and oven, a dishwasher, microwave and all the comforts of home! Central A/C and ceiling fans throughout. The living room has a large screen TV, DVD player, VCR and a fireplace.
Linens provided but please bring your own towels for the lake.

Quiet peaceful living
Quiet peaceful living
I am a travel therapist and travel with my husband and my Yellow Lab. We stayed here for six months while I was contracted in the area. This is a wonderful place to stay. It is so quiet and peaceful. I loved having the cattle pasture next to us. Although the lake level was down, we could still see the lake, which was absolutely beautiful. The neighbors were very friendly. It was a great place to come home to after a long day at work!

We stayed at the end of July with 10 people total. Everyone was comfortable and love the cabin. It was too hot during the day to be outside but the AC inside kept us all super cool. At night, a light breeze off the lake made it enjoyable to be outside.

Beautiful Views and Peaceful Relaxation
Beautiful Views and Peaceful Relaxation
We stayed at the Enchanted Forrest Lake House on September 2nd and 3rd -- it was an excellent experience. The weather was perfect for sitting on the deck in the mornings and having an evening campfire (we did both). The scenery was beautiful. You’re far enough out that at night (w/o a moon) you can clearly see the Milky Way and tons of stars. It was also very quiet (only the occasional pine cone dropping onto the roof) – this is really an excellent place to come and get away. The cabin has a well appointed kitchen and comfortable sleeping arrangements. My husband and I chose to sleep downstairs, no particular reason why. This house would easily sleep the 15 people as advertised on the site. We didn’t get around to using the TVs or DVD player. We read, played some games, and spent a lot of time outdoors. My favorite thing about the cabin is all the front windows, the view is stunning.

Nice quite get-away
Nice quite get-away
My daughter and I went to just get away from the city and have some quiet time to read and relax with our 2 four-legged girls and the place was perfect. Unfortunately we had an a/c problem upon arrival but immediately contacted the owners who were extremely cooperative and offered to refund our money. We decided to stay and were very glad we did. We ended up staying both nights as planned and the owners refunded a full night's stay. No cable which was fine with us - we took some old family videos to watch. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the deck with our morning coffee, enjoying the lake view and watching the cows. Actually saw an eagle. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a comfortable place for a quiet get-away.
