Q. How deep is the water at the dock?

A. While the lake level varies, the dock is moved to keep the depth at the end of the dock between 4 and 6 feet. There is room to keep your boat for your entire stay.

Q. Is the kitchen stocked?

A. The kitchen is stocked with ample cookware and dinnerware as well as more than 30 spices. There is a microwave, gas stove and oven, and dishwasher.

Q. Can fish be caught from the dock?

A. We frequently catch fish from the dock (see pictures). There is also a sturdy canoe that can be used. We would be happy to provide tips on bait and tackle that has worked. No guarantees! Search Kerr Lake fishing info for a great forum for tips!

Q. Can you wade into water from shore?

You can wade into the water and swim from shore. You can also jump and swim from the dock using the swim ladder.

Perfect for the entire family, an awesome lake house

  • 5 of 5

This makes our 3rd year in a row for staying in this house at Kerr Lake. It works perfectly for my family with all its roominess and having the dock for the boat. Yes, there is a water view from the porch, which is also huge and is a wonderful space. There are plenty of water toys and I especially enjoyed the stand-up paddle board this year. No problems, no worries, a nice, quiet get away.

Great vacation. Kids loved the outdoor games, zip line, trampoline, corn hole. Lake was wonderful, good fishing not very populated for water sports. Long walk to lake but was a nice quite nature trail. House was wonderful and kitchen stocked for cooking. Great time!!!

We had a great time at the lake house. We will definitely be back. The Larson's we're very easy to work with. Thank you all so much for letting us enjoy your lake house. It felt like home for a week.

As usual, the Larson House is Awesome! It became Home for two weeks this year, and it was GREAT!

  • 5 of 5

The Larsons have added some new features that made our stay exceptional. The new dish washer, washer and dryer, ceiling fans and headboards in the master and guest bedrooms made excellent additions. We love our Home Away from Home and enjoyed time on the dock, eating and more eating, playing Monopoly and just plain old relaxing. Also great-when we had questions about the house, Cinnamon was incredibly responsive, and answered every one of them promptly. Can't wait till next year!

Perfect Lake Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I visited with my family at the end of August and had the best time. The house was clean, well-kept, and very cozy. I was really able to relax and unwind from the stress of work, etc. We did not want to leave! The walk to the dock was a little far but certainly worth it. The private dock in the private cove was great. We do have a boat, but even if you don't have one - the dock is still great for sunbathing, fishing, and swimming. Great view of the sunset as well. I only stayed 5 days while my mother stayed the entire week but I plan to visit again soon if I can - one of the best vacations I've had in a while!

Tucked away from the rest of the world

  • 5 of 5

If you want to feel like you have gotten away from it all, stay at this house. It is easy to get to by land or water and once you get there, you will never want to leave. The house is fully equipped for playing or relaxing, for both kids and adults. An added bonus for me was being able to bring my little dog. There is plenty of privacy and she enjoyed the freedom to walk off-leash with me back and forth to the lake.

The dock is roomy and we got spoiled being able to have the boat always in the water and ready to go. My son caught catfish like crazy and you would have thought he had won the lottery. We ate them and they were scrumptious. Water at the end of the dock is great for swimming or you could walk in from the shore, wearing water shoes as it is a bit rocky. Canoe, kayak available and we enjoyed those too. If you have kids who need lots of activities, you've got it here.

I really enjoyed the front porch too. Really big and lake view is nice; the best thing is how quiet it is....what more do you need? Kitchen and dining area is set up for lots or a few folks and has all the things you might need, plus some. We liked the house design since we could put the baby in the middle room and she was away from our noise. The people staying in the back bedroom just walked around to the back door entrance and that way, baby was not disturbed. We called her room the "sleep chamber." All I know is, it worked!!!!

Great house; beautiful lake, cute little town of Clarksville and peace and quiet.
