We have stayed at numerous VRBO locations around the country. This is by far the most beautiful and comfortable home we have stayed in. The home was perfect for the size of our group and was so welcoming. The bonus for us was the price was lower than I would have expected for a home of that quality. The home had everything that we needed and the setting of the home was gorgeous! This is definitely a home we will return to again!

Marketing of swimming pool is not all it’s cracked up to be!

  • 1 of 5

We chose this house mainly because of the pool, but also needed the space for 20 and all of the wonderful reviews. Wendy the property manager allowed us the extra people at a cost. It was supposed to be a beautiful weekend celebrating my daughter’s bridal shower with family and friends by a pool. Five days before our stay and after the final payment was made, an email came with directions and the wording PREFER bigger parties use the resort pool and not the private one. Upon arrival getting in the private pool, a resident called Wendy complaining there were too many people. It was only his wife and grand child swimming. Wendy called stating only 8 can be in there. We cut our group down to 8 and the others headed to the resort pool. Neither panned out. The woman yelled at my guests saying you’re not welcome here and you need to leave. After the bullying they left. Up at the resort they told that group it was too big also and there were resort activities for paying customers at that time. Nothing like feeling unwelcome!! My concern is Wendy saying that they’ve had problems with the neighbor before. He is a resident and not a guest; however, he does not have the right to yell and scream at this home’s guests nor take video or pictures of young women and minors in their bathing suits. Unbelievable. As a professional property management company, someone needs to get a handle of this particular individual for future guests. No one should be treated like this. Those eight guests were 45 years of age to 72. One was 20. Shame on the wife and five year old for acting in such a way. Yes, the child was allowed to yell and scream too. This is a first for me. Being kicked out of an establishment at 51 and writing a negative review. It is what it is....

Literally couldn’t have been better. Gathering of our family for a baptism, and the house was everything it advertised to be. Immaculate, and the owner responded to any questions asked. We would love to come back at some point. If it comes down to this place or another, chose this one, it’s amazing

Great vacation with family!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home—works great for several families. The 3 master suites were awesome. Kitchen was large and had everything we needed. Kids loved the bunk room and playroom—kept them entertained. Favorite part was the back patio with awesome views! Owner was responsive when needed and we would recommend this property!

Very Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eleven, 6 adults and 5 teens, had the most wonderful time in your

beautiful home. The view from your back patio is spectacular.

We enjoyed the large space, very comfortable sleeping arrangement and the

fun table games in the garage.

The pools available were great . We had friends in the area for river access.

Everyone wants to go back next year and stay longer. Seeing deer family while hiking was a real plus.
