Exellent stay at Lake Hickory

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There was plenty of space and places to gather. The women used the kitchen to prepare our dishes for the family gathering at our nephew's house across the lake -- room for four women to have their own space. The yard and the deck were a favorite place to gather in the morning and evenings. First time for our annual summer event in North Carolina and after such a success, I am sure it will not be the last.

Beautiful location. Stove needs updating. Deck needs table and chairs to accommodate.

Beautiful house and location. Would stay again. Geared more towards adults but a very relaxing stay. A thumbs up to the beds. Unbelievably comfortable

Owner's Response: We appreciate your comments and we are glad you had a good time. We are in the process this fall of updating the cook top and oven. We also plan to add an outside table and chairs in the bar/grill area to accommodate outside eating. We have bedding for 9, so we plan to have table seating for 9 with the sofas and chairs on the deck adding additional seating if needed.

No effort on the owner side

  • 1 of 5

Great property if kept up.

The beds were not made.Not enough towels. The oven was dirty so when I tried to use it it smoked up. The Beach was filthy with garbage and rusted fishing hooks in the debris pile not cleaned up after a storm. The lawn should have been moved over grown with weeds. The grill area was dirty and in inviting. The out side bar had 3 garbage cans and cleaning chemicals blocking the inside. The living room carpet has sharp staples sticking straight up. One hazard after another. Dead ants all over the master bath I 'd love to post pictures to show how many. Like a colony! Unorganized owners. Had to track them down the day before our stay. Never received a confirmation email or contact info for them. Property was a mess, not child friendly, very hazardous. Took forever to get our deposit back.

With the money they charge they should hire a cleaning lady to prepare the property before guests. It would have made a world of difference.

Owner's Response: We pride ourselves on offering a safe, clean and comfortable home for our renters to enjoy. We provide our cell numbers and encourage renters to contact us with any issues that arise during their stay. . We are very sorry that your experience was not satisfactory. We have always had positive and favorable feedback, so this is a situation that was unfortunately bad timing for us with unforeseen circumstances. We had a terrible storm the day before your arrival as you were aware. Tree limbs down, uprooted trellis and debris throughout the lake. I did my best , with the help of neighbors in my husbands absence, to clean the yard as best I could and pile limbs in a pile until tree service could come to haul off. I am sorry that the yard was not in its normal beautiful condition and that some lake debris washed up on our beach. This has been a particularly tough summer with severe late afternoon thunderstorms. We have our home treated monthly for pests and it was treated 3 days prior to your arrival. There was an issue on the outside wall near bathroom that was treated and unfortunately drove the ants through vents inside temporarily. This issue was remedied. We employ a cleaning service and it is their practice to make beds and lay clean sheet on the top of bed. We provide towels for 9 guests and after reviewing our inventory I saw we were short on hand towels and washcloths and we have purchased more . The cleaners are to check the oven and self clean when needed. We apologize they didn't do that prior to your stay. We have brand new area bound rug and mat in living area and saw no signs of any staples or hazards referenced. The 3 large garbage cans are placed under cover in the bar area outside. We have taken your suggestion and moved them to the garage to make the outside grill area more inviting.

Lake Hickory House

  • 5 of 5

I spent Easter weekend in this property and we couldn't have had a better time. The home is well equipped, extremely comfortable and sits on a lot that is absolutely perfect for groups to enjoy Lake Hickory and the surrounding area. We will be back without a doubt as will several of the families that were with us.

We celebrated a birthday for the "Daddio" of our family. This home and all that it offered was perfect for our family over an extended weekend. Owners have made this vacation get away full of amenities, space and comforts of home! We hope to visit again sometime. Thanks for a fun time!

Great 2 weeks in August

  • 5 of 5

I rented this beautiful property for 2 weeks this summer. The first week my 4 children and there families were there. The sandy beach was great for the younger children. They all enjoyed the paddle boat, canoe and hammocks.

I've had issues with having to clean when I rent a property before, not necessary here.

With so many people of all ages sleeping upstairs, wish the bathroom area was more private. We handled this situation by hanging a sheet in the toilet area. Problem solved.

Would definitely recommend to friends and would stay again.
