Lake life

  • 5 of 5

We had a FABULOUS week in the Lake House! Chip and Wendy were great, the house and the views are gorgeous no matter what time of day or night. It's a great get a way for a family. Lots of room, inside and out. The kitchen was a chef's dream. We loved the kayaks. We drove about an hour away to Birmingham and went zip lining. Note, if you decide to go there, call to make reservations first! We didn't, but lucked up and got a spot. No wifi, very little cell service, so we had a very relaxing week! Thanks Chip and Wendy!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Our big family loved this place and felt at home from the moment we arrived. Comfortable beds, enough bathrooms for a big group, no fussing over the TV since there was one in practically every room, well equipped kitchen; amazing access to the water, the kayaks, floating toys and use of the hot tub. Didn't see a bug or a mosquitto all weekend!! The older kids loved the "secret hideout" over the boathouse. The owners have thought of EVERYTHING for a comfortable and safe visit and provided it, were helpful and available and made us feel like welcomed guests. We difinitely want to go back soon. THANK YOU FOR A WEEKEND TO REMEMBER.

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The title says it all--we had ages 1-83 in our large group and everyone was happy with this house. Lots to do, lots of space, great for kids. Swimming, fishing, kayaking and the hot tub kept everyone busy. The grill in the kitchen was used for some wonderful breakfasts and the table held lots of people.

The owner was great to work with and made everything easy. We would rent again for sure!

A great Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

For Easter, my wife and I were looking for a place that could bring both of our families together and had enough space to allow us to feel like one large family. This house was perfect for that! We had more than enough space, we enjoyed the river and the fishing, swimming, kayaking activities...The men in the family took over all the cooking duties...the wonderful kitchen and grill on the deck made it too easy! Also, working with Chip made this the easiest and smoothest process for a rental that we have ever been apart of. We can't wait to come again!!!

Graduation reunion

  • 4 of 5

Our trip to the lake house was wonderful! The owners were extremely easy to work with. The house is right on the lake with gorgeous views! There was plenty of room and the children had a blast in the "bunk house"! Everyone loved the large hot tub. We had nine adults and eight children in the home and it accommodated us nicely. The kitchen is more than well equipped. The decor is family friendly and comfy. We would love to return in warmer weather so we could enjoy the lake even more.
