Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our teenage daughter and her friend stayed 4 days during Spring Break at Donna's lovely townhome. The townhome was perfect and offered us a lot of privacy between the 2 floors plus the loft. Everything was stocked to make us comfortable right down to the cozy blankets that were stored in a bin in the living room by the fireplace. The kitchen was great for making breakfast and the grill was great for lunch and dinner! We had a great time sitting out by the lake fishing and taking in the sun. The teens had fun on the kayaks that are provided with the rental. The water was a little chilly as we expected and we purchased spring wet suits for the trip. This would not be an issue in a month or so. The town is small and welcoming. There is a grocery store that is actually in walking distance that had movie rentals and anything you may have forgotten. We will definitely be back to this perfect getaway and look forward to working with Donna as she is a most accommodating host that was a pleasure to work with. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Perfect location and set up

  • 5 of 5

My son and I traveled with our friends to take in some waterfalls and lake life. In total there were three kids under 4, three adults and a 40lb dog. The place worked great for our needs. There was a bathroom on every level, plenty of beds, two showers, equipped kitchen, fishing poles and water toys. The two oldest kids caught their first fish off the dock and collected fireflies in the backyard. Waterfalls and tubing were within driving distance as well. There was a bit of dog poop in the yard from other residents but that's not on Donna and since all the residents were extremely friendly we weren't bothered by it. We all had an amazing trip and wished we could stay another week.

Great place to stay on Lake Chatuge!

  • 5 of 5

We would like to stay again, but didn’t like the reservation process. When I tried to pay the remaining balance, we were told reservation had been cancelled, and there was no proof that we had paid our deposit. We would like to deal directly with owner. Our stay was great despite the problems we had with the reservation. Reservation staff speaks broken English and made whole process difficult to say the least!

Memorable Memorial Day wkend

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very clean, comfortable, and perfect for a long wkend. Had a beautiful nearby dock that we were able to use for our rental boat. The Ingles was super close and very modern with hot food choices as a nice addition. All the amenities in the kitchen and laundry were thought of, and board games were there to use as well.

We were able to bring our dog to enjoy the lake as well, which was wonderful! We’ve been to other lake houses that allow dogs, but this was was by far the nicest.

Some minor issues when we arrived were that the refrigerator did not seem cold, and we were worried it might be broken, but apparently the temperature just needed to be adjusted. Also, the ice maker was broken - notified the owner and she was very receptive to fixing this - just had to buy ice to use over the wkend.

Overall, would definitely go back and enjoyed it immensely!

Great location on the lake in town.

  • 5 of 5

Condo was great. Exactly as advertised. Right on the lake. Very clean. Very well appointed with lots of clean towels n linens. They even had fresh new seasonal coffee there for us along with spices n cooking items. Everything was new and so clean. It was like they put out new stuff just for us. Lots of toiletries and paper products. It was really nice. All we needed to bring was our clothes and whatever we wanted to eat and drink. But it's so close to town that we mostly ate out! Kids loved the kayaks and the loft. Went for a nice drive to Bell Mtn which was really neat and right in town 15 mins from the condo. Ms Donna was very accommodating and easy to deal with. You can tell they care about their property and try to take care of it.

Would definitely stay there again and recommend it highly. Thanks!
