Our family loved the accommodations and the lake view.

  • 4 of 5

The property was lovely and very clean when we arrived. All our needs were met. Had some difficulty finding the house because we were looking for Live Oak Trail and we found it to be Live Oak Drive.

Needs help

  • 3 of 5

House is a good value but just know you woukd NOT be able to access lake with any confidence that you woukd not go tumbling down a steep unkempt trail. They need to clear some brush.

Also the instructions were to almost clean the house which I have never experienced in a rental property . The housekeeping people don’t do much except clean bathrooms and make up clean beds. We found a man’s dirty underwear behind the nightstand but visible enough for them to have seen it. This did NOT make us happy!!!

Also they did not bother to explain that the LARGE TV over the fireplace is NOT connected to the internet. I admit we are technically challenged, but that is exactly why they need to leave a message about it. We spent much valuable time trying to get it to work and finally called to ask for help. I was told it was NOT advertised to work. After going back to see what that meant, I was supposed to gather from the picture on the website that there was originally no TV there. Really?

House is NOT suitable for small children in our opinion as the cliff is dangerous and no good access to lake.

The house could really be a Gem with a little work and better housekeeping. I doubt most people want to do laundry before leaving the morning of departure plus making sure rye dishes are clean and all BITS of paper are picked up off the floor.

Then there is the Warning that if you don’t follow these rules you could lose part of your Very very high deposit.

In spite of all of the above, we had a good time but feel the owner expectations are quite high for the results we encountered.

Was hoping this woukd be a place I could return with my grandchildren but I won’t. It is ok for adults only who don’t mind cleaning house for the housekeeping company.

The view is nice—as advertised.

Owner's Response: We ask that potential guests read ALL the reviews to get a clear idea of what to expect at this location since reviews tend to be highly subjective. ***Although there IS a trail just behind the house that does lead to a rocky shoreline, we DO NOT advertise this feature anywhere in the listing, as it may not be suitable for all age groups. We clearly state in the listing, “A boat ramp is conveniently located about a mile down the road at Cedar Creek Park.” which is the lake access we have recommended. ***There are now 2 TVs in the downstairs living room but only 1 is pictured in the listing photos. The one in the photos is connected to basic satellite. The owner recently added a large TV over the fireplace that is NOT connected to satellite, but IS connected to internet and is Netflix capable (which is actually what my text to this guest stated.) We have affixed labels to both TVs now to indicate which is connected to each service to make it clearer for guests. ***Our check out instructions have been the same for over 10 years and are the same things you would do if you were staying at a family member's or friend's house. If you make a mess, clean it up. This includes picking up your own trash in and outside the house, washing your dirty dishes (in the dishwasher), wiping up any spills or sticky messes, and taking out the trash. All pretty intuitive stuff that you would probably do anyway. The only housekeeping detail that may be slightly beyond standard is that we ask guests to wash any used towels and leave them drying in the dryer to prevent them from mildewing before housekeeping arrives. We do provide laundry detergent and full FREE access to a washer and dryer for guests to use however they like during their stay. Housekeeping handles dusting, cleaning the kitchen and bathrooms, washing sheets and making beds, putting away towels, restocking supplies, sweeping, vacuuming, mopping, cleaning appliances, etc. We've been using the same housekeeper for almost 8 years and, although quite thorough, she is human and sometimes something might be accidentally overlooked. We will certainly mention the clothing item that was behind the nightstand that she overlooked so she can be aware of it. ***Again, we would ask that guests read all the reviews as well as the listing details in order to be very clear about what to expect at this location.

The Big Chill Revisited - our Whitney experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend. The house was fantastic and the view was wonderful. It was also much bigger than expected. With 8 people, we never felt cramped or crowded. The house had all the amenities we could ask for and was everything as advertised. We would definitely do it again.

Couple of suggestions...give television instructions - we could never get it turned on. Not important to us.

Build a rock step path to the water below with something (maybe a knotted rope tied to a tree) to get in and out of the water. It would be nice to go to the water easily and be able to swim, float and fish.
