About Pete

My wife and I enjoy the outdoors. We now have a little boy and look forward to introducing him to fishing.

Pete purchased this house in 2008

Why Pete chose Lake Arrowhead

Living in Atlanta we wanted something close. The private lake offered clean water at a consistent level, less traffic and more security.

What makes this house unique

We are on the west side of the lake which is close to all the amenities. We have a private wooded view is secluded cove. This means no boats or neighbors across from you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very relaxing and large home on the water!, Rated 5/5

We loved our stay at your vacation home on the water! We wish we had more time to enjoy the amenities. Will have to recommend to friends and family and re-visit. Very clean and best price for the area. Beds were super comfortable! Kitchen had ample space for guests! Back deck and yard on the water was superb! Saw deer both days! Can't believe this peaceful retreat is so close to Atlanta.

GREAT Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was nice, comfortable , spacious and a good location. The location in the cove was quiet. The guys caught plenty of fish, including a large mouth bass which was probably about 5-6lbs.

The gated community provided an additional sense of security. Living in the city, it was amazing to see how "really" dark it gets. Beautiful Scenery, Lots of activities!

Cleanliness expectations not met

  • 3 of 5

As I shared with the owner after our stay, When we arrived, there were dirty dishes in cabinets (milk crust in cups, dried cheese in cheese grater, crumbs in bowls in cabinets) and surfaces were grimy and not cleaned. As far the bedrooms, there were chips under the sheets in the master bedroom, a toe nail on floor in the other main floor bedroom, and dirt in each of the showers. I know this cabin is cheaper than a lot of the homes in the area and the no frills and basic amenities is not an issue. What we do expect, is that we arrive to a sufficiently cleaned house. We spent the first day cleaning dishes, surfaces, and sheets ourselves so that we were comfortable enough cooking, eating, and sleeping. everyone expect cleanliness. Half of the guests (4 people) departed early because they were just too uncomfortable with finding evidence of lack of cleaning and just could t relax on their vacation.

Aside from the cleaning, we did have to spend time looking for toilet paper for all but one bathroom (we found 4 roles in a closet in the basement), find garbage bags (None of the trash cans had bags in them) and had to re wash towels since they were left in the laundry in a pile still damp and musty smelling. The cabin itself was what we expected in terms of amenities, furniture, location, etc. which was more than adequate for what we were looking for but we were disappointed in how much we had to do before our vacation weekend for some R&R.

Owner's Response: This is an accurate review at that time. House was in good condition in mid April as we were up there several times fishing. Our early May renters left the house in very poor condition and for some reason the cleaning company did not report any of this. We visited the house several times in late May to bring the property back inline. We have also hired a new cleaning company and a property inspector to make sure this does not happen again.

Relaxing getaway for the whole family

Great place to stay. House was simple but comfortable. Affordable for a great house on the lake. Boat and kayaks were a great addition! Will definitely be back!

Had a great time with my family at this place, and Pete was very helpful. He was at the property when we arrived and went over all details and showed us around. The lake was beautiful, this was a very relaxing trip. Grocery store was convienint. Great deal for the price.

2016 Holiday Stay - Lake Arrowhead

  • 2 of 5

We gathered for a weeks stay during the 2016 holidays with our Georgia family. Liked the location of the house - near the lake - even though we did not fish or use the pontoon. The floor plan / layout worked well for our family.

The owner was responsive to our concerns with linens, tv's and initial cleaning - problems that were unexpected at check in and unacceptable. We have stayed in the Lake Arrowhead area previously and rented 4-6 other properties - this is the only house we have been disappointed with.

This home needs some TLC and upgrades - paint, carpet and decor. These issues need to be resolved before future rentals.

8 month business stay

  • 5 of 5

Home was comfy and pleasant! We stayed here with our dogs and family during an extended business stay and really enjoyed the lake and the Georgia mountains! The owner would promptly take care of any small things that would come up. Felt like home! Lots of towels and linens too! Renting the boat with it one month was a real plus as the lake is to die for!!!!!
