The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The perfect getaway - The house is great for just what we needed, a nice weekend of relaxation with a beautiful view of the lake. The patio and split level deck is amazing. The dock is awesome, great spots to sit and just watch the water. Very, very relaxing. The house is in such a great location right over the bridge from GBC. It’s amazing how much the town has grown and being so close to the lake house made it very easy to get anything we needed.

Great Home on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our families from Oklahoma and Louisiana met at this perfect location for Thanksgiving. It was comfortable and met our needs very well. Wished we could have stayed longer but look forward to coming again.

Great owner awesome house

  • 4 of 5

The owner helped me so much before, during and after the rental process. He answered all questions very quickly. All information is laid out well at the house. Home is bigger than it looks in the photos which was perfect for our group of 8 adults and 2 kids. Being right on the water for the weekend was perfect. There were quite a few nails that we kept finding on the dock so maybe checking for those between renting would be good. We had an issue with the wifi connecting/disconnecting frequently as well. Fully stocked kitchen was perfect. Pretty much all the floats left there had holes so that was a bit of a bummer. Lots of life jackets were supplied and there are a few boat/jet ski rental places within half an hour which was nice. Would definitely rent there again.

Great family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend here with 4 generations. There were toys & games for the kids, floats for the lake, a well stocked kitchen, a large open space so we could gather as an extended family during the day, great outdoor space and lots of comfortable seating outside and in. We brought our paddle boards and dropped them in off the dock and that worked great. Jason was quick to respond to any questions. We had a great time!

Fantastic Lakeside Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for 10 days in mid July. Yes, it was hot at 100+/- each day; but the fantastic Oak tree and shaded patio allowed us to enjoy the outdoors even on the hottest of afternoons.

This home is nicely updated and has a well appointed kitchen. I prepared meals all week and entertained friends and family who would come out for the day or an overnight and never thought, "oh I wish they had..."

We brought our 23 foot ski boat and really had a wonderful time on the lake. This house comes equipped with a nice boat lift and dock. The water right off the dock was consistently calm even when the lake was rough.

We brought our 2 dogs and the fully fenced yard kept everyone safe and secure. In the backyard there's enough green space for the dogs and an expansive deck with a fire pit for coffee in the morning or watching the sun set.

I would highly recommend this home. The owner is quick to respond and has a wonderful rental home set-up.

Don't hesitate to book this one--you will absolutely enjoy your stay!

Awesome lake house!

  • 4 of 5

My extended family had a wonderful lake weekend reunion at this rental home. The backyard porch and deck and huge shade tree make entertaining at this home truly special. The house is very well equipped inside with furniture, TV/satellite system, and even more kitchen amenities that one would expect. I only had one small glitch with the house not being clean when we arrived and this was only because of a mix-up on our arrival day. The owner quickly called the cleaning service and promptly resolved the problem. For our stay, the water levels at Cedar Creek were very low. The boat dock was completely dry, so we had to anchor our boat about 25 yards off shore. We really wanted to use the boat house lift, but ultimately our anchor approach worked out fine. Can't blame the owner for severe drought conditions in this region. All in all, this was a good value for the money and I would stay again and recommend to anyone looking for a nice lake house rental.
