    "What a lovely home . The pictures online doesn't do this house justice . It's much nicer in person . The home was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked . We loved the fact that we could see the lake from almost every room in the house . We loved waking up seeing the lake from our bed in the master bedroom . Jon was very helpful and very easy to get a hold of when we had questions . His wife Casey , was also very sweet and helpful too. Great experience working with both Jon and Casey. Our grandsons enjoyed being able to swim right off the dock . We spent the whole day in the water on Saturday . Sunday we rented a boat which they bring right up to our dock . Lots of pretty views from the house too. We will definitely rent this home again . Great time had by ALL"

  • Great Location

    "We had 6 adults and 5 kids comfortably stay in this lovely cabin. The cabin is very large with lots of room for families to spread out. We really enjoyed watching the bunnies each morning on the lawn and were more than surprised when a bear wandered in the back yard and sat in the shade for awhile...long enough for us to get good video and pictures. The location is ideal for those that want to go into the National Park, has easy access to the sites of Gatlinburg and the ability to go around Gatlinburg to miss traffic if desired. We will definitely come back to this cabin. Jack and Linda were fabulous to work with too!"

  • beautiful, well-built and well-equipped cabin

    "just spent an idyllic 5 days at Dave's cabin in the woods, and it could not have been much better! The cabin is very modern and comfortable, great beds, awesome views from the patio, kitchen, and master bedroom. Hammond Ranch is a close-in yet far away location with beautiful meadows and views of the Eddys and Mt Shasta. We went with plans to hike, swim in mountain lakes, run, kayak, eat every meal outside, watch movies (on a very nice TV, with a great selection of movies, BTW), spend time outdoors without other people nearby, and we were able to do every bit of that! Dave was a very helpful and friendly host (offered rafts for floating), but mostly stayed completely out of our way, and respected our peace and quiet. The upstairs master suite could easily accommodate an air bed, it is so spacious, and the kitchen has every gourmet appliance you could want (espresso machine, tea kettle, food processor, etc). The quiet, and the views of Mt Shasta are incredible. Thanks Dave for a great escape; we will be back!"

  • Beautiful location, spacious property

    "Our family reunion included fifteen people aged 8-82. We had plenty of bedding and nice mattresses. Multiple ovens and two refrigerators made cooking easy. All the groceries we needed were available in a medium sized Tomahawk grocery, ten minutes away. Appliances were modern and the cabin layout was family friendly. The younger kids enjoyed making a blanket fort in the loft area, where they could spy on the kitchen and living room activities. The teenagers had space of their own. We enjoyed the piano and guitar, which are unexpected pleasures in a rental cabin. We played pool, ping pong, and card games indoors. There were three large dining areas, easily accommodating kid meals, adult meals, and card games. The large porch was four season with views of the lake. The property is nicely removed from the highway and neighboring properties. We enjoyed campfires in the fire pit and games like soccer and capture the flag in multiple large fields surrounding the house. Three kids caught walleye in the lake and many of us took canoes to observe an eagle's nest nearby. We all had a lovely time and wished we could stay another week."

Top United Kingdom Travel Attractions and Activities

The United Kingdom is made up of four separate countries -- England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Each of these regions has its own wealth of attractions but there are a few things that they have in common. Throughout the UK, you will find ancient castles and ruins of former fortresses. Each of these has its own unique tale to tell. Many of the castles are still in use today, either as royal residences, museums or boutique hotels.

There is the famous St. Andrews Golf Course in Scotland where leading PGA tournaments are played each year. There are literally hundreds of other golf courses to choose from. In the cities, such as London and Edinburgh, there are many historical sites to visit. As the nation's capital London has a rich and detailed history.

There is also the famous museum of waxworks called Madam Tussaud's where you can see famous personalities from around the world immortalized in wax.

Seasons to Visit the United Kingdom

The weather of the United Kingdom is characterized by rain, and a lot of it. The advantage of this is that the rural landscapes are perpetually green and very scenic. Winters are generally quite long and in the central and northern regions, snowfalls are not uncommon. Winter starts from mid-October and generally lasts until the end of April. Spring and autumn are usually quite short-lived. Summer is from June to August and daytime temperatures can get quite hot. On a sunny day, especially if it is on the weekend, you will see many of the locals out and about making the most of the good weather. Summertime is traditionally the peak tourist season and major tourist attractions can get very crowded. If you are willing to travel out of season and possible put up with a little bit of bad weather, you can benefit from some great travel deals.
