Idle Days is a beautiful remodeled home on Rock Creek. It has amazing views of rock formations and the open water. The home is located in a quiet area that is very relaxing.

The house has approximately 3,200 square feet of centrally heated and cooled living area. The house features four bedrooms, four bathrooms. 2 levels of living including main and lower level fully equipped Kitchens and Living areas with large flat screen TVs.

2 Master Bedrooms on the main level both have attached bathrooms. One additional large bedroom is also located on the main level with the bathroom across the hall.

4th Bedroom is located on the lower level with a large bathroom across the hall. This is a great place for kids with easy access to the game area with a Foosball table, games and a dart board (magnetic).

The main level open living area is large and can accommodate multiple families comfortably with seating at the kitchen island, seating for 8 at the dinning room table, a large sectional couch and an additional sitting area all in the same open room with fabulous views of the lake.

Luxurious accommodations-owner is amazing to work with!

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate home tastefully decorated that accommodated all 7 of our family comfortably. Very clean and equipped with everything we needed! The views of the lake are incredible! Tracey went out of her way to help us with any questions while making us feel at home! We brought our fishing boat and launched at ramp close to house. We want to return to Smith Lake and there's no place that can top Idle Days! Our family lived the kayaks provided, my son even caught fish while kayaking! Our favorite family vacation! You will have no regrets about staying here.

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful lake getaway. Our family traveled to the lake for fall break. It was the perfect place to hit the reset button on life. The kids enjoyed floating in the lake, kayaking and making s'mores via the cozy fire pit! So many memories packed into a three night vacation.

Another great vacation at Idle Days

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Idle Days for the third summer vacation. The house is very well supplied with everything you need from the bed rooms to the kitchen. One of our favorite places to stay.

Perfect getaway for our family!

Our family was thrilled about every aspect of this property and getaway. Stylish and comfortable home that was very well equipped, awesome dock, and that Smith Lake water! Thanks to Tracey for taking such good care of us. Already talking about booking for next year!

Even better than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect lake house for a couple families! It's a little tricky to find but SO worth it :).

The main level is very open, with plenty of comfortable seating, an extremely well-stocked kitchen (this is one of those houses that you don't have to bring anything to) with a beautiful view of the lake, 3 bedrooms with nice, comfy bedding, and it's decorated very nicely too!

The basement had plenty of space for the kids and a bedroom we weren't expecting. The outdoor space has tons of great seating options and the middle deck is a wonderful use of space. You don't have too many stairs to get down to the double-decker dock that our kids spent a ton of time jumping from. Being tucked away in this gorgeous cove was great for swimming, kayaking and teaching some kids to wakeboard! We also enjoyed making s'mores in the fire pit!

Thank you to Tracy and her family for being wonderful hosts who have thought of everything! We hope to make this our "summer lake trip house!"
