Outstanding and Perfect for Masters trip!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property and customer service! This is such a beautiful home with plenty of space. The game room provided a great hangout spot and the decks provide such beautiful views of the lake. Every room in the house is top notch and we never lacked for anything. The home is also about an hour from Augusta National, which made it a great spot for our visit to the Masters. The owner, Thad, is a great person and wonderful to work with. It was an honor to stay here and I hope to come back again.

The pictures do not do justice to this property. The owners were great to work with. The house was immaculate upon our arrival. This house is decorated as a luxury lake house should be. The kitchen was well stocked. The view from the upper deck is amazing. We are all ready planing our return.
