The living room offers a gas fireplace, flat screen TV, DirecTV, WI-FI, and French doors to the awesome deck. The deck has beautiful views of the lake complimented by a gentle summer breeze. It is large enough to hold family gatherings, cookouts, or just relax with a book. Enjoy the deck at night too. The night sky offers a breathtaking view of the stars.

Walk out to the dock where a bench awaits you to fish from, enjoy a book, or take the boat out on the lake. The lake gradually deepens from the dock allowing for swimming. The community of Riverbend also has a beach, cookout pavilion, waterfall park, and the Broad River for swimming and fishing. Please see the page “Riverbend” for some highlights of the area.

Beautiful retreat! Spent Thanksgiving holiday with our two college age sons at this lovely cabin on the lake. Cabin has relaxing views of the lake and is very serene. Boys did a little fishing off the dock and nearby creek. Our favorite part was sitting on the back porch enjoying the beauty of the trees, water and quiet. We were blessed with amazing weather! Great family get away if you want to get away from it all! Hope to come back again!

Owner's Response: Hi Lisa, So happy for you and family to enjoy Thanksgiving at our home and to have your sons with you from college. We also enjoy the peacefulness looking out over the lake and find ourselves taking a nap on the deck. All in all, thanks for your review and we hope you will visit us again.

BEWARE OF HIDDEN FEES. My family and I enjoyed the cabin however BEWARE of the management company. They have hidden fees after checkout. This is not a vacation rental by an owner this is vacation rental by commercial property management company. VRBO states there is a cleaning fee which is high but we accepted this. After payment is made you are required to read pages of contracts and other requirements before given keys. I like VRBO for simplicity and this company is not simple. On my drive home I received a voicemail saying they are charging me an additional fee because I did not bring a garbage bag to a dumpster and I left towels on a towel rack! What is the substantial cleaning fee pay idea

Owner's Response: Greg M. booked online through our website. Evidently he missed this part of booking: Longview Realty also advises guests to review our Guest Policy Page (found on website) as this is an integral part of the Vacation Rental Agreement. At the very top of Guest Policy it states "A Guest Book is provided at each home with specifics to the home such as electric panel/water shutoff/ fire extinguisher location, trash disposal, conditions of use, and area attractions." #4 of Guest policy refers to cleaning: Remove all opened food and trash from home. Place trash in sealed plastic bags (13 gallon size) or larger in proper receptacle(s) in designated area. Wal-Mart bags are not suitable. Riverbend Guests: Trash must be left in the dumpsters located at the intersection of Sparrows Way and Rainbow Circle near the bridge on the north side entrance. Any loose trash that results in having to be bagged for removal will result in a minimum $45.00 fee charged to credit card on file. Greg M. left empty beer/wine bottles, pizza boxes on kitchen counter that needed bagging, dishwasher full of dishes, dirty dishes in sink, and the kitchen garbage can full. He was charged $45 for trash removal to dumpsters and $15 to empty dishwasher, collect towels, strip beds, and wash dirty dishes left in sink. All of our homes have a 3 ring binder with pertinent info regarding the home. My guess is this was not read either as it states check out procedures regarding towels, linens, garbage, thermostat setting, locking of doors and windows. It's not rocket science. The cleaning fee charged is to prepare the home as you find it upon your arrival, not be your mother and pick up after you due to your inconsideration. We prefer NOT to charge any additional fees, but do so ONLY when renters do not follow simple requests as part of renting a vacation home. Greg M. even had trouble understanding the Vacation Rental Contract needed to be signed. Amazing. Beware if Greg M. comes to your property.
