  • AWESOME PLACE

    "The house and property was even better then advertised. The water was very clear with a sandy bottom which made it nice for fishing or swimming. The house slept 10 easily and with over 3500 square feet there was plenty of room to spread out. Of course with baseball playoffs and college football the 6 BIG HD tv's really helped. The deck area was great (and large) with lots of room for a BBQ and hanging out and watching the sun go down. The master bedroom upstairs was fantastic. Even though you have a very good website my group always have lots of questions and I appreciative you being so responsive. We definitely hope to get back next year and catching some more bass. I would recommend this place to anyone that wants enjoy the water or just kick back. Thanks again for helping making it a great stay"

  • Very relaxing!

    "We had a very relaxing and quiet weekend! Wish the hot tub was working! Caught a few fish but suggest you take your own poles! Very clean and had adequate towels and dishes to cook with! Not much cell service but that was ok and just added to the peace and quiet!! Jefferson is very close for groceries and dining out...cute little town!!"

  • Fun for adults and kids!

    "The condo itself is very nice, has an inviting balcony overlooking a quiet lake cove for morning coffee and sunset cocktails. Days are filled with boating and swimming in the lake, and playing lawn games on the expanse of green space. Having a private pool so close is a real value, too but the yacht clubs pools are really great! Enjoying lunch poolside is what I call vacation! And this condo is a perfect vacation rental. Professionally handled, too. Thank you for a wonderful experience."

  • More than expected!

    "This was our third visit, but our first time to stay in Pine Grove Cottage. As native East Texans (Gilmer & Tyler) it doesn't get any better than this! We try to get home every chance we get, and though it's a long haul from Atlanta, GA, it's worth the effort. The fishing is great and right out the back door, but what a treat for the grandkids to pet the goats, feed the chickens and wander freely throughout the ranch enjoying the beauty of God's wonderful creation. The cottage is livable, functional and quiet. Indeed, Jim & Paula have carved out a little place that's a bit of heaven on earth. A 5-star Wow! ! !"
