"We arrived at The Water House on a Friday evening from New York. Including a stop to pick up food and wood for the weekend, the drive took us under two hours. The minute we drove into the long driveway, we were under the property's spell. When we crossed the footbridge over the babbling creek, the house appeared through the tall pines like something out of a fairy tale illustrated by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. The photos here tell half the story. The owners treat you like family and do everything to make you feel at home, while giving you total privacy. The Water House is full of history and charm. It's spacious, yet cozy. It's near enough to town, yet far from civilization. Surrounded by trees, ferns, and water, visible from the many well-placed windows, the house feels magical, inside and out. The surrounding acreage serves as an "experimental forest," in which the American chestnut is being reintroduced. In the evening, stars are abundant. The only problem we had was deciding where to read: in the screened porch? On the built-in daybed with a view of untouched woodland? In one of the comfortable chairs by the fireplace? We slept like babies, in complete silence and total darkness. We returned to New York on Sunday refreshed and ready to plan a return trip."

"We had a wonderful family vacation! Rubins retreat is absolutely adorable! Very clean, very comfortable. We found lots to do between the amenities at the house and throughout the community, and with some short travels to Hawk Falls, and Country Junction. The owners were very pleasant, and answered all of our questions promptly. We highly recommend to those with or without children to get away and enjoy yourself. The owners remembered every little detail when stocking and decorating their beautiful home!! We hope to come back soon!!"

Just a really wonderful time and there was plenty to do in the area. The seller was EXTREMELY helpful and communicative. We definitely plan to be back!"

"We visited this lakefront property the first week in May with our family. The home is so cozy and was very well outfitted! We were pleasantly surprised to find the kitchen stocked with all the cooking spices we needed for the meals we planned while visiting. (We love to cook!) The beds were comfortable, the linens were white and clean like a hotel and the bathroom was beautiful. We would certainly visit again. Thanks Rick!!"
