We had a party of 14 and it was perfect. The 2 kitchens are a huge plus. Really enjoyed ourselves.

Beautiful house and location for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Used this property for our family reunion and it worked wonderfully. The owner was great and quick with a respose to questions - especially when my husband accidentally set off the security alarm! Kids had a fun time playing in the water and the adults had plenty of places for visiting or napping.

This house was very accommodating for my family as well as pleasant to stay in. Every family member was pleased with their rooms and the space the house has. Having two kitchens made it better for us to prepare large meals for all family members that was living in the other house. This house was overall a spectacular place to stay.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Brushy Creek Lake house. Owner always responded promotly whenever we had questions. Nice home, plenty of room for 5 couples. Enjoyed the pool table, fishing from the pier, relaxing in all of the different outside areas, and being able to all sit at the large dining table for meals or board games. Do wish a bit more attention had been given to cleaning before our arrival. Overall great place to stay!

No issues at all. Very easy to work with the owner and the place is beautiful. We caught a bunch of fish and had a great time.

Church Staff retreat

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house and everything it is advertised to be. The only negative is that the water had a bad sulfur smell and taste. It started clearing up after about 24 hours but was very unpleasant until then. Other than that, it was good value. We enjoyed our stay and the owner was easy to deal with. He checked on us while we were there.

Owner's Response: One of the problems with well water is that it can lack consistency in quality of smell. The house does have a Culligan filtration system and water softener and is safe to drink. For those reading this review, I might suggest that you bring bottled water or drink from the refrigerator water dispenser as it seems to be better. I'm glad that you had a great time.
