The Home, the Lake, the area was just as the photos show! This experience was a 10!!

  • 5 of 5

Would definitely rent this home again. We shared the home with another family, were a total of 7 and easily could have had our sons there to make 9. The bedrooms and bathroom layouts were perfect for our needs. The kitchen and gathering rooms were spacious and had activities like a pool table, ping pong table and theater room; but the Lake was our place to spend time, steps away and fabulous. The quality of the linens, bedding, towels etc were perfectly standard. The home was immaculately clean on arrival. There are 2 full size refrigerators, and 2 ovens bonus! Be aware that the house has stairs, (elevator Out of Order) and lots of tile which gets slippery if wet. The only criticism is be prepared to bring or buy things for your use. We had to buy beach towels, lake floats, fishing rods, and more Noodle floats as the house didn't provide these items. We rent million dollar homes a lot off Vrbo and was surprised that some of the most common, logical, and inexpensive items were not made available. For example, in the kitchen there were no Big plastic type cups for water to have down on the dock. The glassware provided was nice but unsafe on dock. We purchased 8 of those, as well as Rubbermaid plastic containers and baggies for food storage, only a scant amount provided (3 total baggies) of these. Also, no laundry soap was provided? We flew in from Az and were not in a position to travel with these type items, and so we had to buy items and just donate them to this exclusive home for the next family's use.

The Hughes, James and Cheryl were just the best to work and communicate with. They were always ready and prepared to assist with our questions and dispense helpful info. The Lake Arrowhead community is a neighborhood were you feel completely safe and secure.

It has a lot of rules and restrictions which I like. This area is prefect for family vacations and quiet style events. I would not recommend this home in particular or area for Rambunctious guy trips, Batchelor or Batchelorete style events It's a peaceful and respectful place. There was no loud music playing or "partying on Boats" type of activities that we ever saw or heard. In fact, if that is what your looking for... keep looking. This is a gorgeous home in a neighborhood where the neighbors are friendly and helpful, the lake is literally right there and perfect, in a setting that is pristine, peaceful and gives pause.

This Hughes Home on the Lake was exactly what we wanted.

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! ;-)
