About Phyllis Johnson

We loved sharing our home (Edgewater Retreat) . Our guest said that they loved our home and enjoyed working with us. They were not happy because it stayed booked all the time. They kept wanting time that we didn't have open. This home Driftwood came open and was near our other one. So we took it on in order to try to help our guest that wanted to come back for a visit.

We are so excited with Driftwood.

We just love meeting and sharing our homes with our guest.

Its nice to help make family memories .

Phyllis Johnson purchased this house in 2014

Why Phyllis Johnson chose Lake Barkley

Driftwood is a nice size home and near our home Edgewater Retreat. It sits on the water so you have easy access to the water. Its secluded and makes for a great get away.

Most of our guest come and meet up with other family members to have

a reunion . So with the size of Driftwood it works very well.

The property and the home were great. Plenty of room for everyone, we had 18 people, and we loved it

  • 4 of 5

Driftwood is a great place in a beautiful setting. The home is laid out nicely, the kitchen, living room area is awesome. The kitchen has everything you need. We were there during an exceptionally warm week in September. It was too hot and humid to enjoy being outside in the evening. But inside the house we had a great time. There was enough room for 18 of us to enjoy ourselves and not feel cramped. We enjoyed playing pool, ping pong and cards. Everyone in the group enjoyed staying at Driftwood. Many thanks to Phyllis, she was easy to work with

Drifting away at Driftwood

  • 5 of 5

Rented this property for a small family gathering and it was perfect. Easy to find, wonderfully decorated, very clean and very comfortable beds! Kitchen equipped with just about everything you could need, best that I have ever seen. Enjoyed being able to sit on front porch while it rained and being able to watch the wildlife in the morning and evening. Great great property - will definitely rent again!

So peaceful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came here with 2 other families for one last summer getaway before our kids get back to school. It was so much fun!!! With 15 people and a dog, there was a worry that we would feel cramped. That was not the case at all. We had enough room for everyone to hang out together or for you to be alone if you just wanted a quick nap. The kitchen was so fully stocked it was amazing. If you can think of something you need, it is probably in the fantastic kitchen. Having the boat dock was such a wonderful amenity. As beautiful as the house is, the back deck was the favorite for all the adults. Just sitting out after a long day in the lake and watching the deer come up made every night so relaxing. Phyllis is a terrific hostess and she made sure that everything was taken care of and answered any of our questions very quickly. What a wonderful way to say goodbye to summer!!!

2nd Bi-Annual Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the whole experience! Phyllis is a wonderful lady to work with! We enjoyed every minute that we were there, July 30 - Aug 6. Three out of 4 grandbabies were there and there was plenty for them to do! Fishing, kayaking, running around the yard and even had toys there for them to play with. We had a total of 14 with more than enough room to spare, never once did we feel cramped or in each others way.

My husband and I were so impressed with the area that we even asked Phyllis for the addresses of the other homes as he and I are talking about coming back in the fall.

Oh and the deer...oh my grandbabies thought this was just the greatest thing in the world that they would just walk up and not be afraid of the "humans" in the area. We also had our fur babies with us, which Phyllis just fell in love with, and there was more than enough house and yard space for them!!

Again, enjoyed it very much!!!
