Lovely well kept home with beautiful view of Smith Lake. Ideal for family gatherings. Well stocked kitchen, games and videos for the kids.
Beautiful and restful
We loved our stay! The home is spacious and the view is perfect. Everything we could have imagined needing in the kitchen was provided. The upstairs living room was modern, clean and comfortable. The screened in deck was perfect with a view that is exactly what you’re looking for. The bedrooms are all a great size. Plenty of movies and board games are provided, as well as a fun downstairs area with bunk beds and kids games. Seriously couldn’t have been more pleased. Thanks!
We had such a special weekend at Idle Days! The owner was so helpful, kind (even leaving cookies to greet us), and concerned with our comfort. The home was so beautifully decorated with blues, greens, and greys which created a relaxing atmosphere in the whole house. Anything we could have possibly needed was found. I’ve never seen a kitchen so well stocked, unlike some lake homes where old beat up pots and pans go to die :). Every room was so clean and comfortable with high quality mattresses, sheets, towels, bath mats, etc. The owner has obviously gone to great lengths to keep her home well taken care of so that every guest feels at home and has a great experience. I would definately come back to Idle Days!
Favorite vrbo rental ever!
We have rented through VRBO for over 15 years. This home was the most functional , well furnished home we have ever rented. The Kitchen was amazing and more than adequately supplied! Ample bathroom linens😀�! The owner was timely with any correspondence. Would absolutely rent this home again without hesitation😃�
Breathtaking and relaxing
My family had never had a lake experience before. We were all cautiously optimistic. Wow! Idle Days changed all that for us, and we are so grateful. The home and view exceeded our expectations. The lake house is stocked with all the essentials and more.
No Detail Overlooked
We stayed here during spring break for three nights. We knew it was likely to be cold (it was!) and possibly rainy (yup...two of the three days), but we just wanted a getaway no more than 3 hours from our home since we have a 6 month old in addition to the 6 year old. We had never been to this area and wanted to check it out in case we wanted to return sometime in summer (we WILL)
I really lucked out in picking this home and this location on the lake. Idle Days is a large home on a quiet, rock-cliff lined cove of the lake. The view of the high rocky shore across from the dock was mostly trees....still largely undeveloped. We had the same view from the kitchens, living areas (up and down), and master bedroom of the house. If I didn't have young kids I could have sat there all day long reading a book (or one of the many current magazines stocked by the homeowner!) and drinking coffee, than ice tea, than wine from sun-up to sun-down.
The home itself was incredibly comfortable. Everything was in perfect working order (nothing broken or in bad condition that we noticed), it was tastefully decorated, and was exceptionally clean. The owner clearly loves her home and wants everyone else to love it and have a great experience there. We especially enjoyed the welcome treats and nice note. My son also loved the neighbor's sweet dog Pepper!
We were a small group of 4, but if you come with a large family or group, there are plenty of super-comfortable beds and all rooms had many drawers and cabinets for clothing if you stay a while. I especially liked the retro dresser in the front bedroom...I thought of Don Draper every time I laid eyes on it. I noticed many extra towels, blankets and pillows... and if you are there during swim season, there was an entire shelf of "lake towels" in the laundry room.
One thing we didn't use but I really appreciated was all the hooks throughout the house. We go to St. Augustine for our extended-family beach vacation every year and I am always so annoyed when I have no place to hang towels and beach gear. Another bonus...the knives in the kitchen were actually sharp! If you like to cook, you know this means a lot. Finally, I noticed that everything in the house was of high quality. Kitchen pots, pans, dishware, and utensils were not the usual cheap items you'd find in a vacation rental. And, the dish soap, hand soaps, dryer sheets, and laundry soap provided were top notch.
If you come to Smith Lake, you MUST stay here!!
The city of Arley is located 6 miles from the house. Grocery store is convenient. Rock Creek Marina is around the bend by water and is nick-named 'Red Neck Seaworld'. It has huge fish that you can feed from a baby bottle provided by the marina.
