Couldn't Have Been Better

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely perfect for our group of 8. It had every amenity needed, including a crock pot so while out and about all day we had a delicious dinner cooking--and so nice not to have to bring my own crock pot! The furnishings were perfect, comfortable and enough seating for all. The decorating was tastefully done--not too sparse and not too cluttered--our hosts have a real eye for it.

When we had an issue come up with a needed amenity that was no longer in the house, our hosts immediately rectified the situation to our satisfaction.

The fire pit area was our favorite--we used it every night. The dock was terrific with the slide--we all had a blast zooming down it! This place is a true gem and I look forward to renting it again next year. Thank you for such a lovely, family friendly home. We loved our stay here.

Lovely setting, great lakeside area! Quiet and perfect place for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed being there. Need to fix some plumbing issues, in the tub and at the sink, in the queen size upstairs bath, though. We brought in napkins, charcoal, & wood for the fire pit because we've rented this nice house before. I'll bring foil next year, too. It has a good start on items provided but we realized that we had additional things we needed.

Glad this house is available and we will rent it again.

Owner's Response: so sorry about the bathroom upstairs. I have on my list to get the sink replaced. I was not aware of anything wrong with the tub, I will check that out this weekend. I just cleaned and didn't notice anything wrong. Anytime you see of anything please call me, we could have came over and fixed whatever you needed. Thanks for staying with us Ann & Shane Faulkner

Perfect Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

With lots of space, a quite nice floor-plan, and a peaceful, private location, this house is perfect for accommodating a large family or group. In regards to the amenities, we can't imagine another vacation home that provides so many options. Our family relished in exploring the lake in the kayaks, enjoying the docks and water slide, roasting marshmallows in the fire pit, playing pool, smoking a brisket and other meat, and of course - just relaxing while savoring the view. We couldn't have asked for more! Let us assure you, you will have no regrets renting this beautiful vacation home. Thank you, Ann! It is our hope to return soon.

Wonderful Lake home! Beautiful scenery, very spacious !

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here several times. We have looked at other lake house in Cherokee on Lake Thunderbird and this house fits us perfectly. Very spacious and accommodating for large family. Our family ranges in age from infant to late 20's for the kids and then us oldies of course😜򗀠Carols was closed for renovation so we ventured into Hardy, couple of good eating spots; right on corner used to be a gas station ( can't remember name) and then on opposite side is a good spot. Little further down strip is a great coffee shop. We also went to Ash Flat to Meachums. Great place, great price. Everything was within 15 min or less driving. Then of course Walmart and fast food right around corner . If you want to rent a boat, within 5 min is the marina. If you like to canoe or float the river is within 15 min or less depending on where you start. They also have golf, community swimming pool and arcade, paint ball, zip line, horse back riding right in Cherokee. Great vacation!!

Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this lake and everything about our mini vacation! The house was perfect for our multiple families. The kids LOVED the bunk room and the swim docks. They didn't watch a minute of television! The kayaks were a fun way to spend the morning fishing and the rest of the day we were playing outside, tubing on the calm and clean lake, or swimming off the dock. We would stay again!

Family weekend

  • 4 of 5

Other than the house not cooling down untill up in the early morning, itwas a nice place. We had plenty of room for everyone. My son and his family had room to spend away from us and all still be together. Plenty of space to enjoy few of lake. We enjoyed swimming and floating in lake. Water was warm. Wish we could have stayed longer. Kids really enjoyed playing pool inside.
