                                                          We had a great stay at Splendor Cove. The home was spotless and top quality interior. The owners had excellent communication and went the extra mile to make the house welcoming. Would love to stay here again sometime!

                                                          Awesome House

                                                          Adam A.

                                                          We loved our stay at Lake Glenville. House was beautiful. Great use of space, very clean, and well stocked for a great trip. They left us a nice welcome package when we arrived and made sure we were all set. We would absolutely stay here again. Great for the kids and adults.

                                                          Beautiful home, fabulous lake

                                                          enjoyed a wonderful week

                                                          Incredible house on the lake!

                                                          Alice P.

                                                          This has been our favorite house we have rented on the lake! The house is much larger than it looks in the pictures. It had plenty of space for our group of 6 adults and 9 kids. The furnishings, linens, etc were all much higher end than typical for a vacation rental, everything was so comfortable. The big yard and kayaks/canoe were fantastic, which is another thing that is harder to come by with other rentals we have done in past. 5+ stars for sure!

                                                          Exceeded expectations!

                                                          BrentHattiesburg, MS

                                                          We had a great week at Splendor Cove! The property was clean and was larger than appeared in the photos. The beds and furniture were very comfortable. The wifi was better than expected (much to the kids' delight) in the mountains. There was an abundance of towels (bath and beach), and we never ran short on coffee mugs. The kitchen had everything we needed. There were lots of extras such as camp chairs and picnic blankets. We really enjoyed the ping pong table under the pavilion, the swings in the yard, and the hook & ring game on the front porch - small things that all added to the enjoyment of our stay. The owners checked on us shortly after our arrival to ensure we had no problems. We would definitely look to stay here again in the future.

                                                          Enjoy the many outdoor activities in the area, explore the stream on property, boat/jet ski, stroll through the local shops and restaurants of Cashiers and Highlands or just relax in bed and read a book. So many things to do, you will want to stay longer.
