What makes this house unique

The serenity of this cove lets you get away from the activity of the main lake while still allowing immediate access to the same. The convenience of the local shopping center and dining establishments mean that if you do decide to go out, you don't have to go far.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was exactly as described and shown in the photos. The house was clean and the were comfortable. The house has 2 beautiful decks and along with a patio. Too bad that the weather was too cold for us to make full use of them. The kitchen was well equipped with utensils which helped us to make most of the meals at home. All kids and adults enjoyed the game room alike. Table Tennis and foosball tables were huge hit. For cocktail enthusiasts, the bar room on the lower level was well equipped with glasses and shakers. All in all, this is the best place for us to have fun. We definitely recommend this place for family vacations. -Naveen

Perfect home for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent the week of July 8-15, 2017 at your home, and it was WONDERFUL! We had a group of 15 ranging in age from 5 months to 69 - 9 adults and 6 children. It was probably the best vacation location we have ever had. The home was well laid out and was very clean. We had space for families to separate a little as well as lots of space to gather. We loved the boat slip and parked our motor boat in it. The dock was great and in the shade most of the AM. We had a ping pong tournament and a foosball tournament. We used the grill and it was also clean. The super blender downstairs allowed us to make some GREAT daiquiris!! We all hated to leave!!

Wonderful Home

  • 4 of 5

This home was great. The kitchen was well stocked and the items were CLEAN! That is not always the case. The house was also very clean. The set up of the home was perfect for our group. The kids took over the downstairs while the adults enjoyed the upstairs. The only issue we had with this place was that the cove is tight and we had a hard time docking the boat. We do have a 22' boat so that may be the issue! I would rent this house every year if it were in a larger cove. The owners obviously take good care of this place.

Labor Day Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed the Labor Day weekend at Hillcrest @Whitby Cove. The home was pristine with wonderful décor and furnishings. It was beautiful inside and out. The home was very spacious for our 15 family members and modern with lots of amenities. The photos accurately reflected the rental's appearance and amenities. I love the multiple decks in the back which were well furnished with tables and comfortable chairs. There was plenty of comfortable sleeping space, spacious bathrooms, and the game area was lots of fun for the whole family. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything any family would need. We enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave. Pictures were shared of our vacation with friends and co-workers and they too were impressed with the home. Thanks for a wonderful weekend. I would recommend this lake home to others. We are looking forward to returning next Labor Day.
