A thoroughly relaxing and quiet spot.

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of eight and were so comfortable. The view of the lake is superb, and there were many relaxing mornings reading and doing yoga on the porch, and looking out at the lake with a warm cup of coffee. Kitchen dishes/glasses/supplies were plentiful. Fishing, swimming, hiking a boating were all nearby and quite beautiful. The location is very quiet. The house is built into the hill in an interesting, energy-efficient way that probably accounts for how cool it was during our summer stay.

Don't let the photos fool you, the place is amazing

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, I booked the place because of the view and I'm glad that I did. In the morning we woke up to a wonderful view of the lake and waited until the first boat broke the surface of the lake sending waves in each and every direction. Night time we stayed up late star gazing. You can see the milky way although lightly but its there! also caught a few falling stars.

The inside of the place is comfy enough to fit 6 adults and our younger ones. It has wireless internet, which came in handy to look for activities near by, but swimming and fishing was more than enough. The place also has TV, but I must admit we didn't think of turning on not once. Instead we spent our time enjoying the view, grilling (Weber grill propane grill - yummm) swimming and hiking the private trails

As for the flexibility, our schedule was all over the place yet they were flexible enough to accommodate it no matter which way we stretched them.

mini vacation in a quiet place on Moomaw lake

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 adults, all 55+, spent a wonderful long weekend on beautiful lake Moomaw in Lake View unit of Big Lick Retreat property. We have got everything we need in the house and we certainly enjoyed serenity of the place. It felt like we were the only inhabitants of the place... like we owned it... the woods, the lake, the pristine nature. The weather was perfect. We enjoyed fishing, swimming, private trails. The only advice for trail explorers - take some anti-mosquito spray. And enjoy!
