Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family meets each summer for get togethers. My son Brian found the Boyd Villa this summer. It has been one of the nicest places that we have stayed. Plenty of room and everything you need for a great visit. Some of the family come up from the gulf coast and we go south from Virginia. Ages from 3 to 80 and all of us had a wonderful visit. The bunk room kept the 3 kids happy......they loved their retreat!!!! We also rented the pontoon a few times. It is a beautiful home and we all loved all of our family time there!!! Thanks very much!

Luxurious Lakefront Country French Villa
average rating of 5.0 based on 26 reviews

Home was wonderful! Everything was perfect and we really wanted for nothing.

  • 5 of 5

The Boyd's were attentive and responsive and easy to work with. We needed an extra hour to exit on our date of departure which along with letting us arrive early made the whole event run perfectly.

The home was very well furnished and our guests were very appreciative of the space and decks. Our weather was tremendous and we spent all of our time outside. Lake views were outstanding as it seemed were the leaves that were changing colors every day. Worth every penny and we will definitely look to rent this property again. Many thanks. David Mears

Beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

We just had a wonderful stay at this luxurious lakefront villa. Everything was perfect. This is the most well appointed home - and especially the kitchen - that we have ever rented. Mrs. Boyd did everything possible to make our stay comfortable and easy. This is a well designed and decorated large home (Upscale linens, furniture, decorating, appliances, etc.) There is plenty of room for a large group to gather and also have private time. I have nothing but praises and highly recommend this property.

Very comfortable home for a week

  • 5 of 5

Jim and Beverly could not be more accommodating, making everything work in their gorgeous lakeside home. Even when the power went out for 6-8 hours due to a storm, Beverly was doing everything she could to ensure that their property would be one of the first with power restored. The home is truly what one wants for a vacation - well appointed, comfortable, and with a fine array of amenities. All of Big Canoe is quite nice - we doubt you could wrong in this area. But with Jim and Beverly's place, you're guaranteed that extra attention in case something (like nature) does go wrong.

Great for family gatherings!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family, from age 1 to 94 yrs, had a wonderful time at the Boyd Villa at Big Canoe. With a beautiful master on main and accessible shower, my father was safe and comfortable. The bunk room was great with lots of single beds for teenagers and younger children. There was even a crib downstairs for my grand niece. We all enjoyed the pool table and extra kitchen downstairs, and that served as a great area for those who like to stay up late. The deck has a convenient gas grill and beautiful view of Lake Petit. The walk down to the lake is somewhat steep and treacherous, but for the able bodied, provided lake access for our paddle board and canoe. For families with many adults and kids, this is the perfect, luxury lake vacation get away. Bring only necessary vehicles, however, because parking is limited and the driveway is steep. I highly recommend the Boyd Villa as a great place for large families to gather and reconnect!

Wonderful place for our Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our Family Reunion consisted of 13, 11 adults and 2 children. Our stay at the Boyd villa was perfect! There was plenty of room for us to spread out and the Big Canoe area provided many activities. We loved the Big Dining Room table where we enjoyed our family dinners. Seating on the deck and feeling the lovely breeze and seeing the view of the lake was heavenly! We have many memories of this lovely home and we thank the Boyds for sharing it with us. We would definitely recommend this home and if we have the opportunity we would come back! Edna B

Stunning Villa in Big Canoe!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of vacationing with our family at the luxurious Boyd Villa! This is a beautiful rental property in Big Canoe, GA.

Our first visit was July 13-20, 2013. We had group of 14 and had plenty of room to spread out and be very comfortable. The main room upon entering the home is absolutely gorgeous! The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook for a large group and plenty of seating available for our family dinners. Beverly and Jim did a wonderful job of anticipating the needs of their guests. We had a truly wonderful time there and immediately booked our next trip upon our return home.

Our second stay at Boyd Villa was 12/27/13-1/2/14. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas! It is a different experience in Big Canoe during the winter and we were so glad that we were staying in a home with plenty to keep our group of 15 entertained. We played games, enjoyed wonderful meals together, and had fun movie nights. We truly felt rested and relaxed at the end of our trip.

We highly recommend this home to anyone planning a vacation to Big Canoe. Beverly and Jim were great to work with and quick to respond to any questions we had prior to our trip or during our stay. We look forward to returning in the future!
