Why Michelle Smart chose Driftwood Estates

Beautiful setting with curb appeal as well as lake appeal. Long driveway with wooded lot, private entrance. Feels secluded. Perfect for a romantic weekend or longer stay. Great location to enjoy water sports in Summer, hiking or rafting nearby in Spring and Fall. Great location for relaxing after the Horse Races. Perfect setting for anytime of the year. And, most importantly, beautiful sunsets in the summer. (Not good sunset view in winter.)

What makes this Apartment unique

Popular bass fishing and watersports area. Dock deck for sunning, swimming, and fishing.

                                                        I stumbled across this gem of a property after another one on VRBO fell through and I'm so happy it did. My family was super excited about this and for once, the pictures did justice to the property.

                                                        This garage apartment provides the perfect relaxing lakeside getaway. My daughter and I had everything we needed for our weekend stay, and the clean and contemporary decor set the tone for a peaceful, calm visit. The beautiful view of the lake and the feeling of living in the trees were exactly what we had hoped for. We would definitely welcome the opportunity for a return visit!

                                                        So glad you experienced exactly what attracted us to this garage apartment several years ago... you so beautifully described the ambiance ..... for awhile we called it the treehouse.... hope to meet you when you return!!!

                                                        We are very happy with everything, not a single negative thing to say about this place or experience.

                                                        Great place to stay!

                                                        We have used HomeAway/VRBO properties for different trips and this one did not disappoint. Beautiful views of the lake. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Michelle and Steve were great and made sure we were taken care of. We will definitely stay here again when visiting Lake Hamilton.

                                                        The property was peacful and gorgeous

                                                        I would highly recommend this property for a weekend get away for a couple.

                                                        The owners Steve and Michelle are wonderful people.
