"I've stayed in a lot of places with VRBO and this was simply the best. It had the look of a mansion but the feel of home. It was very comfortable and nothing was missing. Typically, rental homes have barely the basics. It was great they didn't rely on renters to have brought everything. I've been to places that didn't even have salt and pepper. Even the cookware was more than sufficient for making large meals. The communication with directions, etc. were perfect. It was definitely a winner for families like us that hate carpet. The best part was the privacy. The way the house is situated on the property makes for perfect solitude. We loved the separate beverage/coffee station off the kitchen. Mornings and afternoons were perfect for opening all the doors and listening to the waterfall while lounging on the incredibly comfortable chairs and sofa. I agree that children under 10 years old would need constant monitoring due to some of the construction elements, but that really should be advised at any lake house. I will probably bring my 5 and 10 year old for future visits. The home audio system took a few minutes of patience to configure, but was a great touch. The wi-fi was also very sufficient as cellular signal weak to none. But that was a plus! Overall it was a great home for our 15th anniversary to share with family. We will return. Thank You."

"We met our daughter and family at your wonderful lake home to celebrate a late Christmas and to bring in the New Year. We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay even though it rained all three days. The Sun room was perfect for our 5 year old granddaughter. She used the table for all her toys and watched some of the movies you provided. She made the room her special play house. Despite the rain, we did get outside with our umbrellas and walked down to the lake. We talked about coming back with our kayaks during warmer weather to enjoy water activities. You have the perfect dock for easy access to the water, fishing, etc. Your home was very clean and the kitchen provided all the pots, pans, dishes and utensils needed to make any meal. In the evenings we all gathered around and watched movies or played games. There was plenty of room for all 7 of us. We look forward to returning. Can't wait to sit out on your lake-side deck and sip my morning coffee. Thank you so much for opening up your home for people to enjoy the beautiful lakeside setting."

good old fashioned lake home with lots of space, easy location to access, and near Duncan Marina
"The owner is easily contacted, immediately responsive and most accommodating. The added convenience of a boat rental from him made our family gathering just what we were hoping it would be... both relaxing and exciting.
The home is large and provides all the items listed... some are newer, some not so much... as one should expect at a vacation home. The home is not "new" but it is comfortable. If you are the picky type, you might prefer someplace newer, since there are some age-related items that need attention. However, many of the newer homes we saw from the water while touring Smith Lake do not have what this home has... proximity to the water and a shallow grade from the home to the boat dock. The dock provides a swim platform and ladder.
We would rent again... thanks for loaning us your home and boat."
