The most beautiful house on Smith Lake.

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in a lot of places with VRBO and this was simply the best. It had the look of a mansion but the feel of home. It was very comfortable and nothing was missing. Typically, rental homes have barely the basics. It was great they didn't rely on renters to have brought everything. I've been to places that didn't even have salt and pepper. Even the cookware was more than sufficient for making large meals. The communication with directions, etc. were perfect. It was definitely a winner for families like us that hate carpet. The best part was the privacy. The way the house is situated on the property makes for perfect solitude. We loved the separate beverage/coffee station off the kitchen. Mornings and afternoons were perfect for opening all the doors and listening to the waterfall while lounging on the incredibly comfortable chairs and sofa. I agree that children under 10 years old would need constant monitoring due to some of the construction elements, but that really should be advised at any lake house. I will probably bring my 5 and 10 year old for future visits. The home audio system took a few minutes of patience to configure, but was a great touch. The wi-fi was also very sufficient as cellular signal weak to none. But that was a plus! Overall it was a great home for our 15th anniversary to share with family. We will return. Thank You.

Beautiful quiet well equipped lake house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 2 night pre-Christmas getaway with our extended family. There were 8 adults and 2 kids - 13 and 17. The girls loved the sleeping loft. Enjoyed the layout and the outdoor fireplace. Downstairs bedroom suite stayed quite chilly - thankful for the space heater. Warning - Master bathroom does not have window treatments on the windows above the soaking tub. If someone is on the driveway, they can possibly see in. Overall a great stay. We will be back again.

We will definitely come back- the weekend wasn't long enough! We will definitely rent a boat next time so we can explore the lake.

Gorgeous vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful home for our 10 year anniversary, and we already are trying to figure out when we can return! The home is beautiful and the setting is just as gorgeous. The customer service was outstanding! If you are not accustomed to country roads, please follow the directions the homeowner sends you instead of navigational devices.

If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy beauty inside and out - this is your place!

Thank you for making our trip and our anniversary so memorable.

Amazing properity to be so run down !

  • 1 of 5

1) the directions to find the house is very hard they discribe the house but you can't see the house from the street. The sign is so small you don't see it and 10 is nailed to a tree so small you miss it.

2) the house is very hard to get cool it took 24 hours to drop from 80 to 78 and 48 hours to actually cool down .

3) they have a bug problem :wasp, silver fish, cock roaches, flies, hairy worms.

4) they have leak in the main family room from the ceiling it took 2 buckets to catch the water dripping .

5) they say you have internet service , but we had none .

6) master bedroom tv didn't work at all.

7) the entaintment system had no sound , so silent tv and no music ... They knew of this problem but didn't let us know till we called and the answer was the part is on order ...can you imagine a 2 yr old and a 5 yr old and no tv .

Our stay was 9 nights !

The listing description was not accurate regarding location , layout, amenities, nor was the property clean and well- maintained. I would not recommend this place to my friends or relatives.

Owner's Response: We are saddened by your experience. We had renters before and after you that have not had any of these issues and feel it unfortunate that you waited until after you checked out to let us know any of this was going on. The instructions emailed prior to arrival and the book at the house provide detailed instructions on how to access the internet and work the thermostats, we looked at this after you left and everything was working as it should . Apologizes on these sound, this is working perfectly now and we were planning on having it installed before your stay but Fedex delivered it to the wrong address and it took more time then it should have to end up at the house. We do appreciate you letting us know of these issues and we are continuously striving to satisfy our guest and making everything as easy to use as possible. As for the directions, detailed directions are provided a few days via email with turn by turn, what the driveway looks like and whey you know you've gone too far. The house sits towards the lake and away from the road, we've never had anyone not be able to find it and apologize that you did. We hope that you and your family are able to come back to our house soon and enjoy it! Thanks

Wonderful Home with an Incredible View

  • 4 of 5

Our family LOVED this home. It was well suited for our large family. It was beautiful inside and out and the special touches made it feel like HOME! If you wanted to nap, fish off the dock, swim, read, eat, lounge on the rooftop terrace or go for a nice walk you do it ALL at this Home. The master suite was a haven to relax in and the soaking tub is definitely one to rest and relax in after a long day on the lake.

I would NOT however recommend small children or pets as there are lots of railings and stairs for the little four legged ones to get a possible boo boo from. We were a nervous wreck with out little ones the whole time. BUT that's the only concern we had.

The owner's were VERY responsive to any concerns or questions we had and that makes all the difference when your staying away from your own home

We WOULD recommend this home as a vacation rental on the Prettiest lake we've ever been on. It's a Wonderful getaway place!!!

Thanks so much!

Please note that cell reception is not great, particularly with Verizon. Some service providers are better then others. AT&T is best. Verizon works ok from the top bedrooms; better on the water and out on the street. However, the wifi connection is good for texting once logged in using the user name and password provided in your welcome packet. The county is considered "dry" so if you intend to make alcohol a part of your journey, please plan ahead and buy before you get too close. Please bring bug spray as being secluded and by the water there may be insects around the home.
