What a gorgeous home and serene location!

  • 5 of 5

Not only was this home beautifully decorated, it was very clean. The lake and dock were steps from the back door. The area was very quiet and private. We felt like we were in Maine while kayaking around the lake. C.D was lovely to work with and we would highly recommend this home to anyone!

This property was beautiful, clean, well maintained and stocked with everything you need for a restful vacation. Owners were so helpful and kind. Our kids had a wonderful time on the lake with the kayaks and canoes. The outside fire pit was such a treat at night as well as the outside ping pong table. The home movie theater was a perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon!! Would love to return for another vacation.

The Hughes' Place on the Lake was the perfect "get away" for my family!!! The engaging backdrop of the Georgia mountains, glistening Lake Arrowhead and all of nature that encapsulates this unique oasis put everyone in mindset of relaxation!

The Hughes' "mansion", as I call it, has every amenity available to their guests!! I love to cook therefore, I cooked some delicious meals in their spacious "gourmet" kitchen and entertained my family as they made themselves comfortable in the sitting area looking out at the lake and adjacent to the kitchen.

We had so much fun playing pool and other games in the evenings and then eventually settled down to watch a movie in the "Hughes" movie theatre (with popcorn)! All of the bedroom/bathrooms are very tranquil and so inviting with plush towels and bedding! The heated floors are awesome as you step out of the shower or the bathtub jacuzzi! Now, that is comfort on a very different level! As I reflect on our wonderful stay and the aesthetic appearance of this gorgeous home and all it has to offer, I was very much impressed and grateful for the excellent customer service Mrs. Hughes provided! She certainly exceeded all my expectations and mine are very high! This is a priority for me and my family! Hughes' Place on the Lake is the best kept secret (not anymore) and I have already made tentative plans to come back with my family in a couple of months and spend more time outdoors! I would highly recommend Hughes' Place on the Lake to anyone looking for an exquisite and a "one of a kind" experience from a honeymoon adventure to a family retreat, girls spa/guys golf weekend, holiday celebrations and everything in between! There is plenty to do!! The pictures we took are a constant reminder of how much we can't wait to go back!!!

A Very Merry Christmas @ Hughes Place on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

It was... A Very Merry Christmas on the lake with our children, grandchildren, and parents!

Mr. and Mrs. Hughes were fantastic hosts and eager to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable...

We gave that beautiful kitchen a workout cooking and baking so many yummy Christmas goodies and it stood up to the challenge as it was well stocked and accommodating for entertaining the family!

The lake views are breathtaking even in the winter... There is plenty to do for everyone, from those who just want to lounge and watch football to those who want to venture out to the lake and canoe, hike, or just enjoy the beautiful North Georgia Mountains! Summer visits probably just bring a whole new array of things to do.

Parking at The Hughes Place is very accommodating, which if you've ever stayed at other properties in Lake Arrowhead is not always the case... The Hughes have thought of everything to make this stay on the lake a memorable one! Christmas @ Hughes Place on the Lake 2015 would be hard to beat! I can guarantee our kids and grandkids, and maybe even our parents will be asking Santa for another stay at Hughes Place on the Lake! ;-)

Incredible !

  • 5 of 5

The Hughes' place was incredible. We were a group of 10 women that enjoyed the house to it fullest. From the kayaks to the movie theater, the house was perfect for a friends reunion. We hope to stay there again in the future.
