About Amber Moore
Hi, I'm Amber, your property manager. I will reach out to you before your arrival and make your stay with us magical! Hope you join us!
Amber Moore purchased this House in 2006
Why Amber Moore chose Waleska
There are few things better than watching the sun set over the foothills, while roasting mallows on the dock after a day on the lake!
What makes this House unique
We provide many water toys: Water Trampoline, two hydro bikes, 2 kayaks, a paddle board, and a canoe. A NEW 7 man Hot tub is now available over looking the lake and the foothills. All those toys are included in the price of the rental. If you want to boat on the lake, you can RENT THE PONTOON FOR $795/WEEK OR $195/DAY. IT WILL BE AVAILABLE TO YOU AND CONVENIENTLY DOCKED AT OUR HOUSE DURING YOUR PONTOON RENTAL PERIOD. Some rentals share a pontoon and make access and availability inconvenient. Just let us know that you are interested in renting the pontoon and when you arrive you can fill out the contract and pay with a check or cash. No credit cards can be accepted for the pontoon rental. We do not rent the pontoon through vrbo. And for those that like to fish: we have some of the biggest bass living right under our dock!

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
One of the best lake houses in the area. Amazing amenities and everyone in the family will enjoy their time.
Thank you for your kind words. It was so nice to have you return!
Great family getaway
Lots to do on the lake and tons of water toys for the kids. We rented the pontoon. Not a super powerful motor but we had fun on the lake and were able to tube. Two sitting areas in the house and nice deck. Everyone loved the jacuzzi and fire pit at night. Definitely would come back again!
So glad you enjoyed time with friends and family! Few things better than watching the sun set over the foothills while roasting marshmallows on the dock. The motor on the pontoon is a 90HP Honda. It purrs like a kitten and meets most of our needs. Please join us again. You were wonderful guests and we would love for you to return! Take care and stay safe!
Arriving the property was okay, I wouldn’t suggest this property for black people though. We got stalked leaving wal-mart for groceries, they didn’t feel comfortable with US using the boat so they gave every reason for us to not use it. When we left we cleaned the whole house didn’t even use all the rooms. We even made the beds up but she still kept our deposit and said it was left terribly. If they needed the extra money that’s all they had to say. Two days at the house and I spent waaaay more than I should had and they kept my deposit and didn’t let US use the amenities. Big RACIST MESS!!!
We are so very sorry to hear that you felt uncomfortable and stalked at Walmart. That is heartbreaking to us, as we consider all of our guests, an extension of our home and family and expect the community to treat everyone respectfully.
The boat remained docked, during your weekend stay of Jan 18-20th because of the freezing temperatures and wind gusts. Sunday temperatures dropped down to 23 degrees F with a High temperature of only 35 degrees F. We follow the regulations and recommendations of water safety by Cherokee County Emergency Response and your weekend was not a safe weekend to go boating. Our property manager, came to the house to explain this but no one answered the door. Both of these items would compel us to make acceptable amends for a return visit with hopes of a better experience, had you not left our home in such a disrespectful and careless condition.
We appreciate your effort at making the beds that you slept in, but no future guests will want to sleep in beds previously occupied. Hence, we have “check out procedures”, so our cleaners know which beds have been slept in. When you make all the beds, all 5 need to be stripped and cleaned.
5 open bags of trash were left behind with open beer cans and wine bottles littered in bedrooms, under beds, in the kitchen, under couches and throughout the family room. Other "used items" were found under the bed and recreational substances were left behind and found throughout the house. The additional cleaning needed, to bring the house back to acceptable standards, included airing out the house. I assure you, we would never withhold a guests' deposit, "because we needed the extra money". We take seriously, the impact of withholding someone’s deposit, as you are only the second in 14 years. The first, was for similar reasons. We know that it could result in a review such as yours. But we felt it necessary to alert other VRBO Homeowners and to forward the small deposit withheld, to our cleaners who spent extra hours restoring our home to presentable condition. We pray future guests will be able to garner the truth from our collective reviews, and trust us with their very valuable “time and money”.
We were on a girls weekend and it was so fun! The home accommodated all of us very comfortably and the hot tub was amazing! Great walking trails, wildlife and beauty.
I am so glad you enjoyed your weekend! Thanks for coming and I hope you will come see us in the summer ! The lake is warm and wonderful !
Small Spaces, Over Communication and Too Much Air Freshener!
The property was mostly as advertised, but the required communication from the property manager was a bit invasive and overwhelming. I received an e-mail and multiple texts from the property manager the day prior to our check in with obligation for response. The property manager asked that we let her know when we arrive, then that we let her know when we were settled, then proceeded to come over to walk us through everything in far too much detail, then came BACK the next day to go through the boat rental contract, and continued to reach out during our stay. We enjoyed our stay but when on vacation, I do not want to feel obligated to check and respond to my phone on multiple occasions. The mattresses on the beds all seem quite old and need replacing, especially the king in the master. Although the property was relatively clean upon arrival, there were 5-6 plug-in air fresheners on a high setting throughout the house that were far too fragrant. The smell finally subsided a couple of hours after we removed them. The extra bath/lake towels, paper towels and trash bags were sincerely appreciated but some soap/shampoo/conditioner in the showers would be a major plus! Finally, the request to wash, dry and fold all towels and wash, dry and put away all dishes before departing is a big ask on the morning of check-out but we did our best. Long story short, the kids loved the place but the adults had to do a lot of work to fulfill the property manager's requirements. P.S. Be warned - LOTS of knick knacks everywhere - this place is not toddler friendly!
So sorry to hear that Cabrina's attentiveness was not appreciated. Most of our reviews remark on how professional and helpful she is. However, I also understand that sometimes "less is best" and privacy is a priority. She is so very responsive. I know she would have throttled back if she had known of your preference. Hope your kiddos had fun with all the water toys and you found time to relax. A brand new Posturepedic King Size mattress and box spring was purchased and has replaced the Master Bedroom mattress. Thank you for alerting us.
