House was perfect for our family.
We had a great time. Weather was perfect so we were able to be on the water in our rented boat. Girls loved the slide. The property was quite nice. The grill handle was missing which made it difficult to lift the lid; however that was the only problem we had.A wonderful anniversary celebration was had by All!
Thank you for your encouraging words. Sorry about the grill- will get a new one before next renters.
Love this place ! Great place to stay
We had a great time ! They had everything you needed very clean ! Beautiful place ! Owners where great
Thank you so much!
Clean, comfortable, and easy dock access.
We all loved our stay at Gary’s lake house. A beautiful house with easy access to and from the dock. The dock was one of the finest ever. Lots of room for our two boats and plenty of accessories. The House was clean and comfortable. We would rent again.
Thank you so much!! Great to have you at our place!!
The house was very clean. We had 3 families that stayed together. I personally felt like it was big enough for all of us to stay comfortably. The view was amazing. It was perfect for our vacation and what we wanted. We would definitely recommend to everyone. Booking it and communication was always very easy and stress free. All our families left happy, and refreshed.
Great home and location. Very relaxing
Fantastic home. Well maintained
Thanks for sharing how you appreciated our home. Your comments were an encouragement to us since the week before the people who used are home were very critical.
Could have been Wonderful, but was not
The house was perfect for our group of 8 adults and 3 kids, age 4 to 7. There was ample parking for 5 vehicles and our trailer. The kitchen is well stocked, plenty of pots/pans/dishes. We used the crockpot, blender, and hand mixer. The measuring cups and spoons were each missing pieces. Everyone enjoyed the dock, especially the kids who used the slide and jumped from the top deck.
We vacation every year on Norris Lake; this was our first time near Powell Valley Marina, which is not one of the nicer marinas. The house is located in a narrow section of the lake where boats are coming/going all day causing wakes and rough water at the dock. The kids learned not to be close to the dock if a boat was going by. It is about 1/2 hour boat ride to Deerfield and Sugar Hollow marinas. If you are bringing or renting a boat, or have more than 1 jet ski, bring your own bumpers and lots of rope.
We rented a golf cart from the owner (Gary). It was great the first day, but would not run after that. I called Gary, he said: 1) we didn’t chock it; 2) we flooded it; and/or 3) we didn’t press the gas pedal correctly. He acted like it was our fault and would not do anything about it, so I asked for a refund, which he agreed to provide. Unfortunately, the slope to the dock is very steep and was difficult for our older folks to climb; we all left with sore legs. I called Gary the second day to tell him there were ants in the house. He did not answer the call, so I sent a text message. He replied that the exterminator would be there the next day. We never saw the exterminator, but we did continue to see ants the entire week.
In all fairness the following items were not reported to Gary, because we didn’t feel like he would do anything about them.
1. The TV in the left master bedroom was not connected to any service; not sure why it was even there.
2. The outlet at the dock kept blowing the breaker when trying to connect the water pump for the slide.
3. The sheets on the king beds would not stay on the beds.
4. Several of the cleats on the dock are broken, we tied ropes around the posts.
5. There is a dishwasher, however, a dish drainer would be very helpful.
So sorry that your stay was not to your liking. In the 15 years that I have been renting this is by far the most critical review that I have received. (Please observe all of our other renter comments). It would take a page to refute many of your accusations so I am not going to attempt to respond to all of them. However, I did respond immediately to your first compliant about a few light bulbs that were burnt out. When my housekeeper responded to it that day she was a bit offended by your attitude and shocked that you would complain about a bulb being out above the bathroom sink when there were 3 others working as well as replacing another one that was on a nite stand. There are bulbs above the Washer and dryer.
We have since taken off the web site the opportunity to use the golf cart. (by the way we used it the next week with no problems).
The pest control man was out on Monday(day after you left a voice message) and sprayed for ants around the house-he didn't see anyone around to allow him to enter the home.
Enough said -I hope you find a suitable place in the future.
