Relaxed and Enjoyed!

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful place to relax and enjoy! 4 of us there for Easter weekend. House was nice and well stocked - lots of room. Nice short walk to the fishing dock to fish or you can sit on the big deck or in the yard and watch your boys pull in those big catfish! Lake like a mirror! Great view from living areas and deck. The fire pit has a cooking grill - we made yummy burgers then removed the grill and had a campfire. Shopped in Jefferson (15 minutes away) then came back and fished and relaxed. Lots of birds and squirrels. Enjoyed laying on a blanket under the trees reading and snoozing. Just a great place. The owners are really nice, too! We enjoyed meeting them. We're already planning our next trip back! We were very, very pleased.

Spacious and well-stocked with a caring touch!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay this weekend. The house was decorated for Christmas, and we even had presents under the tree!! The screened-in porch provided a memorable 1st night, and a fire in the family room beside the Christmas tree was nice last night, when the temperature dropped 40 degrees!

This is a great place and I plan to come back this summer and bring a bunch of friends. This place and the owers are top notch!

18th Annual W.O.W. family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the wonderful weekend at your vacation rental! We are female descendants of Betty, age 14 and up, who gather the weekend after Mother's Day every year for a ladies' retreat. We call it WOW, for Women Only Weekend. This year 11 ladies (and 2 more who visited for dinner Saturday night), representing 4 generations, drove in from all over Texas, Alabama, and Virginia, and spent the weekend catching up, eating, and enjoying your beautiful lake view! We enjoyed the wildlife right in the back yard, we all ate together at the huge table on your screen-porch, and we appreciate the kind hospitality you and your husband shared with us, from feeding the catfish, to supplying us with unlimited ice and plenty of firewood for the fire pit. This is the most well stocked place we have stayed in the 17 years we have gathered. We didn't even unload our cookware and dishes from the car, because your house had plenty of everything. We used your roasting sticks to cook hotdogs and toast marshmallows over the fire. Everyone slept well, no matter which bed they were using. We have often had to provide our own linens and towels, and it's great that it's included here so we didn't have to carry the extra laundry home afterward. And with cooking, dishwashing, and 11 people showering, we never even ran low on hot water!! Everything was clean and welcoming. We will definitely be calling you again for accommodations in a future year! Thanks so much! ~ Betty; daughters Patti, Janda, Nancy, & Diana; granddaughters Angela, Sheila, Holly, Kara, & Bailey, great-granddaughters Melody, Jamie, & Ashlee (who just married into the family in December)!

Sisters Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The property and home is beautiful, welcoming, and perfect! We had everything we needed, plus some. Mrs. Braley and her family were very helpful and go above and beyond to make sure you are satisfied. The home was cleaner than most 5star hotels I have seen. The atmosphere was relaxing and just heavenly. My sisters and I have a beautiful time and was sad to see it end. We will definitely be back!
