About the property

Beautiful and functional 5 bedroom 8 bathroom dream lake getaway.

Open the front door to find a stacked stone wood-burning fireplace and a wall of windows and sliding doors to the rear deck which in turn opens to the kitchen with granite countertops, raised breakfast bar and a breakfast area which also has access to the wrap-around screened porch and deck. The master suite with king bed also has access to the deck, a walk-in closet and large master bath with two vanities, jetted tub and separate shower. Two additional suites, one king bed and one queen bed, are on the main level, along with a powder room, a walk in pantry and a laundry room. The top floor has another half bath and a media room with projector system with 8 reclining theater seats. The basement opens up to the lower deck, and has 2 additional bedroom suites, one queen and one king, each with private baths, a family room with a stacked stone gas fireplace, another half bath and a mud-room for all of your water toys and towels. Every room on the basement level has its own access to the rear covered patio with a 5 person hot tub and a gas fire pit overlooking the deep, clear water of Tim's Ford. A short set of stairs lead to the lake and to the double decker dock. Bring your favorite watercraft to enjoy at the lake, and keep it in one of the two slips. Upper deck has a diving board and a shaded seating area. Don't worry - this house has High-speed internet with Wi-fi access and DirectTV. Queen size air mattress and sheets allows this huge lake house to comfortably hold up to 12 guests. Sorry no pets.

Why Nicole Reynolds chose Winchester

Great fishing, skiing, boating lake with Tim's Ford Marina nearby. It is extremely quiet out here, almost like you have the lake to yourself. Our property is less than 100 ft from the water, up on a hill, with stairs leading down to the double-decker dock. There is space in the dock for two jet skis.

What makes this house unique

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family rented this lake house for a week and had an absolutely wonderful stay. The views were amazing and the home was perfectly laid out. There were three bedrooms on the main level which meant that the kids could stay downstairs (2 bedrooms downstairs) while the adults stayed on the main level and avoided having to go up and down steps (which was nice for us). The house was also incredibly clean. felt like we were staying a brand new home by how clean it was. The dock has a diving board which the kids loved, and there were not many steps to get to the dock. The movie theater upstairs was also a big hit with our family. We cooked out several nights and just had a wonderful time. Highly recommend it.

Great vacay!

  • 4 of 5

Great space with the home for 10 people. Just disappointed there was no gas for fire pit or gas grill. Too many remotes for Theater room but kids liked watching it. Lots of games for inside and out.

Owner's Response: Hi Dianne, So glad that you enjoyed our home! We are sorry that the gas ran out for the outdoor fireplace during your stay. Unfortunately, that does happen about twice a year and we have to give the gas company advanced notice to come fill it. Thank you for the feedback on the remotes. There is actually one universal remote that controls everything. We just keep the other remotes because they came with each of the separate devices. We are going to find a better way to communicate that to future guests. Again, thank you for your feedback and we hope to have you again.

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for a family trip.

The home? Wow.

Plenty of room for gathering for family games and conversation. (we had 11).

The kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed to make anything you wanted. Grill out on a nice grill, or use the green Egg for fast cooking. :)

And everyone got a place at the dining table. Huge.

Head on up to the movie room...and everybody gets a seat and feels comfortable.

Every bedroom had comfortable beds, and very spacious bathrooms.

No one felt cramped!

Porches had lots of room. The dock was huge, with a great diving board - a big hit with my kids!

Use the kayaks, or just float around in the wonderful water in the cove, where it stayed peaceful all week.

And the communication was fantastic with those in charge.

Can't say enough good things about this house. You simply would have to look really hard to find something you didn't like.

Best way to enjoy the lake!

  • 5 of 5

I am a long time lake goer. Have owned boats all my life, had friends with a lake house and almost bought one myself. This is the best way to enjoy the lake. No dragging boats around. Just get here and relax. The house is beyond words. Nice, comfortable and everything you need. Layout is great and stocked well. It is clean and all you have to do is show up. I took 11 kids here for my daughter's 16th birthday and they had a ball..The loved the diving board and LOVED the movie theater. I hope to go again soon! Thank you to the owner and the agent for a great stay and Nicole is awesome. She is right there to help you and answer any questions you have. Thanks, guys!
