What can I say? My family and I stayed at the Hinson's lake home for Christmas and it was amazing. The owner was so attentive from the very beginning. When we walked into the home and there was a Welcome basket full of goodies awaiting us. The home was very clean and breath taking. I've stayed at other homes before, but this one has been the BEST. I don't think anyone I was traveling with had a single complaint. We are already planning to return in the summer. If you are Looking for a quiet retreat not too far from Atlanta, this is the place to stay. The kitchen had everything you can think of. The home is well stocked. My family and I got back to our home and just missed everything about the lake house. Think no more, this is the home you want to rent. Hope this review will help you make a decision.

Perfect for large families!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this home over Thanksgiving 2015 (I just realized I forgot to leave a review). We could not ask for a better home. Very spacious with many different areas of the home to be entertained in. We had children ranging in ages from 3-16 and there was something for everyone. The house was immaculate and beautifully decorated. Far superior to any other lake home we have rented. The weather was chilly while we were there so we did not use any of the water equioment. We did use the golf cart and the kids had a lot of fun just riding on that.

This home had everything you could need. Bathrooms were well stocked with linens and the kitchen had every appliance you could possibly want. The fire pit out back was used every night

The owner was extremely responsive and so easy to deal with. We had an issue with the fire alarm going off while we were there. Phil had given me his cell phone so all I had to do was call him. He answered my call and walked me through what to do and the issue was solved very quickly.

We could not ask for more. We will definitely rent this property again. In fact, I'm hoping to rent again during warmer temps so we can take advantage of the water toys!!

Thank you for making our holiday so special. Many awesome memories were created!!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Phillip Hinson lake house from October 12th to October 16th, 2016. This is the 5th year in a row I've stayed in a lake house for my annual homecoming trip for a Clemson University football game, and this house was leaps and bounds the best I've stayed at.

First and foremost, Phil was an absolute dream to deal with. He is a consummate professional, and he was unbelievably generous in fielding questions from a set of guests very unfamiliar with the area.

We took the pontoon boat out on the lake and drove it to Portman Marina for dinner, which ended up being one of the highlights of the trip. The golf cart made It extremely easy to travel to and from the dock with our equipment. The tubes provided were great for laying in the lake on. The yard was beautifully landscaped. The fire pit in the backyard was perfect. We spent time each night sitting by the fire. The hammock was great for lounging, and the barbeque was used every night we were there.

The entire house is immaculately decorated. Every detail was fabulous. You can tell that no corners were cut in the manufacturing of the house. The bedrooms were all extremely comfortable. The bathrooms were all of ample size, and were well stocked with towels. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking every meal of the day. The lower level was unbelievable. The pool table was awesome, and the bar was area could have doubled as a professional bar.

Overall, my stay here was one of the best of my entire life. I would encourage anyone to rent this property. Highly highly recommend, and I will absolutely be looking to reserve this little piece of paradise in the future!

Couldn't be more satisfied

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home to hold our weekend retreat at. The owner couldn't have been more accommodating or helpful. Loved the fact that they had a pontoon boat we could rent and use (at a very reasonable rate). The property was beautiful, the house was impeccable, and the overall experience was memorable. Perfect for a smaller gathering like ours (there's only 4 bedrooms). My only complaint was that the air mattresses they provided in the bonus room (where my wife and I slept the first night) weren't really suited for adults as they didn't hold the air for more than a couple of hours. I suggest you bring your own. Overall, I'd rent there again.
