Lovely home! Fully stocked!!

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time with friends celebrating some birthdays. The kitchen was fully stocked and great for feeding large crowds. The dining room table was perfect for our size group of 14, with a little room to spare. The home has three separate comfortable living areas for people to gather. Beds were comfy!! Wifi wasn't working when we got there, but the owners answered our calls immediately and were incredibly helpful. They get kuddos for their patience in helping a non-techy like myself. Our weekend was in the middle of winter and it was quite cold, so we didn't get out much except for a couple of short walks. It would be ideal to be there in warm weather so as to enjoy all the outdoor amenities the house has to offer!! Overall, we had a great time in this lovely home!!

We spent our Family Thanksgiving at the "As You Wish" property in Norris Lake. This is absolutely the best place we have ever stayed. Well equipped, clean and updated appliances. The Hot Tub and fire pit were a great hit !

Thank you !!

Beautiful home with amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Kitchen stocked with everything you need for large family. Double ovens and double dishwashers make it easy to cook and clean up. Not to mention a second well stocked kitchen on lower level. Owners check on you to make sure you have everything you need. Answer questions and respond to calls very quickly.

Awesome Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both Daydreamer and As You Wish for our family reunion! Both of these homes are wonderfully decorated, comfortable and well equipped! They were perfect for our large group and being side by side made spending time together comfortable and easy. Brian and Andrea were great to work with -- answered our questions and checked in on us to make sure we had everything we needed. They made sure these homes had everything you might need - I've rented a lot of VRBO homes and these are by far the most well equipped and cared for! Lots of extra touches from the free-standing icemakers, multiple dishwashers, excellent game and movie selections to the child-sized picnic tables on the decks - we enjoyed our stay very much and hope to rent these again sometime soon! There was plenty of parking spaces for our multiple vehicles. Even in mid-April, we enjoyed swimming and kayaking and fishing right off the docks. The limited Internet was used up quickly with a large group like ours... but it is understandable as these homes are set back - away from it all! There was only spotty cell service - mainly only the people with Verizon got a signal. It gave everyone a chance to really go off-line and relax and enjoy being together. You won't regret choosing either of these homes for your next lake vacation. They are clean, well cared for and felt like a great "Home away from home!"
