Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this beautiful home to help celebrate my Husband's birthday with his family. The house is spectacular and a perfect setting for a relaxing retreat. The views are incredible. We hope to come back in warmer weather to enjoy the beautiful lake and pool. Thank you for helping give my husband a wonderful and memorable birthday weekend with his family!

Beautiful and well equipped house. Incredible views. Just a short walk over to the lake, pool, hot tub and sauna. (Fun even in the winter!) Wonderful and responsive owner and caretakers. I recommend this property wholeheartedly.

quiet, relaxing, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time away. The hot tub was nice on the cold December days. We would love to take our girls and visit in the summer. Lewisburg nearby was very nice for meals out. Check in was smooth. The only downside was no wifi because we planned to stream netflix. Instead we did all the puzzles in the house and purchased a few DVDs at the Walmart in Lewisburg

So sad to leave this little slice of heaven!

Great property! Pictures cannot capture the beauty and character of what Rick has created. We loved the house ,although we spent very little time there. Every waking minute was spent down at the lake. The weather was perfect! Mark and Josh were both so helpful and kind. We rent a lot of vacation homes and this is by far, our favorite! Well worth the price. Hidden gem!

Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Dawson Lake property was everything wonderful as advertised. The location and proximity to I-64 and the Greenbrier County attractions was a convenient plus. The accommodations were new, clean, simple to operate, and secluded just enough to feel private. The property was ideal for dog walking and mountain top exploring. Pool house is a must use feature! The wood pile was plentiful and easy to start, bedding was plush downstairs.
