"This is a beautiful home that's very tastefully furnished -- and incredibly comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped, the master bed is incredibly comfortable, there's abundant hot water for a long soak in the Jacuzzi tub, and the sitting room in the master bedroom has two of the most comfortable imaginable arm chairs and hassocks plus a desk and lovely lake views. Although the house could easily accommodate 10 to 12 people, my husband and I felt quite comfy and cozy in it, as the master bedroom and living areas are all downstairs and the rest of the rooms are either upstairs are on the lower level. The upper deck as well as the pier and lower deck are furnished with an abundance of comfortable outdoor furniture.....and the lake is simply stunning. Treat yourself to a wonderful getaway at this beautiful home!"Guest: Helen L. Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 31, 2014View listing
"Jenny was absolutely wonderful to work with....always a quick response with great information. The condo was beautiful and very spacious....Jenny the pictures just don't do it justice! There were 5 of us for the week, and we had room to spare. The furnishings were comfortable, everything was clean, the kitchen was extremely well-equipped. If anything, we felt like we didn't have time to use all of the amenities. We brought our boat along, so spent most of our time out on beautiful Lake Keowee. We did play ping pong a few times, but never got the kayaks out (a big regret). We did use the pool twice and played tennis once. For anyone bringing a boat to use during your stay, the slip is very nice, but a bit of a distance from the condo. We loaded everything we needed into the car and drove down to the slip each day, and it worked out beautifully. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone!!!"Guest: Paula Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: July 8, 2014View listing
"We found the perfect place for our weekend getaway: The Hummingbird Cottage. It was absolutely amazing with everything we were looking for and more! Very quiet and peaceful, yet only a free minutes from town. The owners of this beautiful cottage offer everything from a fully functional kitchen, a ready to use grill and comfortable beds to a wonderful pool (diving board and fun water slide included!), life jackets, pool toys, floats and cabana. The indoor game room had a lot to offer. Between the site hockey table, Foosball table and various board games, there is always something fun to do. This was our first visit to the Hummingbird Cottage and we are already looking forward to returning again and again."Guest: bryang Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 22, 2014View listing
"Our family, which included five adults and seven children ages 4 to 13, had a great time at this house over the weekend. It is exactly as pictured. Positives: 1.Everybody agreed that the beds were comfortable. All of them were actual beds; none of them were sleeper sofas. There were plenty of sheets, blankets, and quilts to go around. 2. The "water toys" were a lot of fun. We enjoyed the john boat, canoe, pedal boat, and kayak. It helped that the weather was unseasonably warm: high of 82 degrees one of the days. 3. The house was very lived-in; nothing too fancy which put our minds at ease concerning the children. 4. The ping pong/pool table was well-used by the kids during our indoor hours. 5. We had brought our own games, but if we hadn't it would have been okay because there were quite a few already there. 6. There were plenty of towels to go around if we had kept track of our own towels and used them more than once. 7. The water pressure in the showers was great. 8. There was a basket of goodies on the table welcoming us upon check-in. It was the perfect start to our vacation and such a nice touch. Negatives: 1. The water heater is apparently too small to accommodate 12 people. I was always the first to take a shower in the morning, and by the time I was finished, the water was already cooling off. Several family members commented that their showers had been cold. 2. The kitchen, while well-equipped, was very small. The table in the kitchen only seats four. There is, however, a picnic table on the screened porch. 3. One of the bedrooms in the basement was also the home to the hot water heater (I think) which is out in the open and not in a closet. We didn't feel comfortable having any of the kids sleep in that room because if they had awakened during the night, it probably would have scared them. My brother and sister in law graciously volunteered to sleep in that room, but I'm not sure they slept very well because of the noise. 4. The home is not very aesthetically pleasing. The furniture in the great room leaves much to be desired. There was a comfortable couch but everything else was wicker with vinyl cushions. Nothing in the house matches and there is not even a color scheme of any kind. However, as I said above, it was nice not to be afraid the kids were going to mess anything up."Guest: R and H S.
