My family has been coming down to the lake for vacation for the past 8 years and have stayed in a different house every year. We all voted this as the best house we've stayed in. For starters, it was the cleanest by far. The layout is awesome...with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, plenty of privacy. The downstairs is terrific...pool table a big hit with the kids and adults:-) Deck is the best I've experienced...awesome views and a screened in porch option.
Our favorite aspect was the dock, which was phenomenal. Kids LOVED the party deck and ability to jump into the deep cove. Felt very safe as the dock sits in a quiet cove...not a lot of boat traffic to worry about. Owners were terrific to work with. I appreciated that they checked in by phone the day we arrived to ensure everything was as expected. Location of the house is perfect...we prefer staying in this area (calmer water, less boat traffic)...but still close enough to marinas. Plus, the ice cream boat that comes by daily at 11 am...a fan favorite for the kiddies! Kids love Bridgewater marina...arcade, mini-golf, Moosies restaurant, etc. (close by boat or drive).
Only thing I'd point out is that there are quite a few steps to dock. For the able-bodied...a nice workout to justify eating the nachos at Moosies...for the elderly or disabled, it would be tough to get up and down.
A great week, everyone had a blast! We hope to be back next year if the owners will have us!
Fantastic place and location. Spacious, clean and inviting home. Couldn't ask for another thing. Owners are fantastic. Dock is on quiet cove and you can jump off it and swim at your leisure without boat traffic. There was even a musical ice cream boat that comes around. How cool is that. We rented a boat at Halesford harbor and kept it on the dock. Walk out porch, down the steps and off you go
Nothing short of AMAZING. First, I would like to say, the kindness and hospitality shown to me by the owners was outstanding!! They were very personable and they expressed their happiness for my family as we celebrated my mother's graduation from Liberty University. All the hotels were sold out and I am glad because we struck gold in finding - AT EASE. The home and surrounding area was so beautiful. The home was so amazing, it was clean, updated and fully functional. From enjoying the view of the lake, to playing pool and watching movies (they have a huge collection), to cooking on the grill and watching the sunset on the dock, my family had a blast and we look forward to staying there for years to come!! I have already recommended the owners and home to friends and family! Thank you for making our weekend magical!!!
My eight long-time friends met this year at this beautiful location. This house was perfect -- from having plenty of comfortable bedding for everyone, many open areas to gather together, open decks with great views, and a kitchen totally stocked for whatever cooking you want to do. Our group loves to walk; therefore, had great areas to walk but we were able to get our daily exercise on the steps to the water. For us it wasn't a problem, but consider 80+ plus steps and taking a cooler with wheels to get to the water and relax your day away. I really can't say enough about this wonderful weekend experience "At Ease". The owner of this property was also very helpful and I enjoyed working with him. I would strongly recommend this property for families or friends to gather.
We had another great week relaxing and enjoying time as a family. This is the best dock at the lake, it has sun, shade, plenty of room to fish, easy docking for us novice boaters, and a great second story deck to jump off. The cove is perfect, just of the main channel, quiet and clean. The house is perfect, great pool table, plenty of room and is stocked with everything you need. I would definitely recommend for everyone, families or couples.
We had 4 couples all around the age of 30 staying at the house and there was plenty of room to have privacy if we needed it.. There was plenty of kitchen pots/pans/utensils/tools/etc to cook almost anything you wanted...The house was very clean when we got there.. The deck attached to the house and the dock by the lake were so spacious and were great to relaxt on..It has a spare full sized fridge in the basement which was great for storing all of our beverages down there, if we did not have that fridge we would have had to buy alot of ice and keep things in our coolers through out the week.. The upstairs room with the king size bed has the most beautiful view of the lake itself. The water was so refreshing, we spent so much time just floating out in the cove
The not so great:
It is over 105 steps from the dock to the top of the deck so if you have small children, impaired mobility, or are elderly this could be a big problem...
There is not alot of room to store dry food.. The "pantry" is stocked with cleaning supplies so there was one corner cabinet in which you could put all your dry items
There is minimal cell coverage and no WIFI/internet connection (did not bother me cause I was on vacation and did not want to communicate with other people but if someone needs a place to possibly work away from home, this is not it)
There were no televisions in any of the bedrooms which may or may not bother some guests
There is no public trash service so you have to drive your garbage bags to a facility which takes about 40 minutes round trip to dispose of it
Overall we had a very good experience and would consider staying here again
