Beautiful home! Very comfortable and inviting.

  • 5 of 5

We hosted our extended family Thanksgiving in this lake house, and the beautiful interior just set a comfy cozy atmosphere from the moment we walked in. We had ample room to move around, ample bathrooms, comfy furniture, plenty of seating and eating spaces. The kitchen was spectacular, and a true family gathering spot with room for multiple cooks. I love the gas cooktop on the island, it made it easy to cook and engage in conversation. The concrete and wood floors made for easy cleanups, and the extra linens helped with kids sleeping on air mattresses in the loft, which, by the way, made a perfect teen hangout, and each bedroom having its own bathroom was perfect for a private getaway spot. The endless windows displayed the spectacular view of the lake, and the sunsets were stunning! We ventured down the rocks to the lake, did a bit of fishing, hiking and just truly enjoying the cold front that had just moved in.

I have very few "cons". 1. Getting to the house: I used GPS, but not with the address, by dropping a pin on the map, and had NO trouble, but other guests had trouble with the directions. 2. We had a cold front come in and it took forever to get the house warm, however, it's because it's a very large home with concrete floors that are super easy to clean, so is that a con?

Wonderful views of Lake Whitney from this well appointed home.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our multi-generational family. We used it as home base while we attended a golf tournament in the area. The bedrooms are nicely decorated, and we loved that each had its own bathroom. Many also had patios and lakeside balconies. I loved loved loved my gorgeous Africa room! We had lots of room in the huge, open, high-ceiling main living area with large kitchen. Rental agency was quick to respond when we had trouble working the TV. Hope to go back and stay longer!

Spacious with an awesome view!

  • 4 of 5

This is the third year my group of ladies has stayed at this house and we will keep coming back! We love that every bedroom has its own bath and 3 of the 4 bedrooms have a view of the lake. We like having two dining tables--we can leave our craft projects and games on one as we eat at the other.

Fantatic family stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends had a amazing Labor Day weekend stay at your beautiful home. The pictures do not do justice! We loved the fact all four bedrooms had their own full bathrooms. The home has a wonderful layout with spacious amounts of room. With the big group we had, we all had plenty of room and enjoyed the opportunity to visit in such a comfortable environment. The view to the lake was spectacular...the sunsets stunning. I want to personally thank Debbs for taking such good care of us whenever I needed information, he was there! I would recommend this vacation home to all my friends and family!

Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

This home is beautiful. It is laid out great for multiple people or multiple families. Love having a private bath in each room. There is a huge lift upstairs. Upon arrival house was 83 degrees. The AC doesn't cool whole house well they have window units upstairs. We had issues with AC and the rental company responded immediately and sent someone out. There is still issue with cooling it down so July was very hot. Stove was not working it had stripped knobs and we couldn't inssure it was off. It was gas so worrisome. Other minor issues. All reported to the rental company so hopefully easy repair for future visitors.

Beautiful home on the lake!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely LOVED the house. Everything was just about perfect!! The guys were a little sad the TV was small and in a weird spot to watch the NFC championship game..but they managed. Other than that, the house had everything we needed. The kitchen is huge!!! And is fully equiped, the livingroom is very open, plenty of room for the kids amf a place with 4.5 baths is a plus! Great location and the weather could not be more perfect for the views we had.

Thank you again, we will definitely be back!!
