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.

Family Fellowship at the Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to spend some quality time with the family! Our group had 6 adults and two children. We drove down beautiful rolling hills to the front door all lit up with orange lights and a welcome sign with our family name on it. Since some of us arrived after dark, once we saw that sign we knew we were in the right place. The fall decor they put out for us inside and out was absolutely beautiful and added a very nice and surprising touch!

The moment we walked into Braleys Bungalow, we noticed how fresh it smelled and everything was super clean. This spacious and comfortable bungalow truly does have everything you need and games galore for all ages. It was a pleasure to meet the owners, Jackie and Johhny Braley, who go out of their way to make you feel welcome and you can tell they are very sincere with their hospitality.

The view of the lake from the bungalow is so peaceful and once we went out in the boat into the main water, it was just as nice. We were there during a full moon and I went to sleep staring out windows into the tops of the trees and woke up to daylight peeking through the trees. It was so beautiful and serene. Our family absolutely loved it!

Very unique cabin

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jackie and Johnny for a very nice stay, as advertised it was a relaxing lake front property. but it was also so much more. My husband and I have stayed at a few places like yours and some were good some not so good but Braleys Bungalow was great. The screened in porch was perfect for sitting outside in the mornings and evenings. Thank you for taking me to watch y'all feed the fish, I enjoyed that very much. We also loved the peace and quite there. We enjoyed fishing from the pier. Thank you for being such wonderful host and for going above and beyond to make sure we had a great vacation. Also would like to say if you love a great steak, 5D steak house in Avinger was excellent. We will be returning as soon as we can to stay at the bungalow, Thanks again. Beau and Loretta Epnett

Charming Lakeside Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay! Due to a family reunion at Johnson Creek didn't get to spend as much time here as I would have liked. Very beautiful grounds and the cabin was quaint and charming and clean with everything you needed and more. Lots of thoughtful details throughout the cabin if you stop and take notice. The Braleys were very accommodating and kind. Thank you so very much for all you did and for sharing this spot with us. Would love to return and enjoy it more!
