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

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.

Labor Day Weekend Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house, fully equipped for the cooks and the kids. 3 families with middle school to college age enjoyed Labor Day Weekend. Water level at least 6 ft. off edge of pier, nice water to float, play or boat,and close to main lake. A few very minor glitches but nothing to deter us from renting again.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Our two families just finished off a fabulous week at your beautiful home. The downstairs "kid zone" was perfect as our teens had their own domain, staying up late and sleeping in while the adults upstairs were able to go to sleep at a reasonable hour. The house is very soundproof! The dock was great, the kitchen well-stocked, the beds were comfortable, huge grill, friendly neighbors--overall, your house had everything we needed. We have rented lots of houses and your home was really outstanding. And of course, I have to mention the proximity to Food Lion! Literally, less than five minutes. Very convenient!

My wife and I slipped out of town for a romantic long weekend in October. This home has everything a couple or family could ever need. For starters the home was immaculate and the climate control was perfect. The furnishings were beyond our expectations and we adapted easily to our new surroundings.The decor is very pleasant to the eye and very relaxing.Modern appliances,Wi Fi, easily accesable and we cant wait to return. An A+ all the way.
