About Judy

Hi I'm Judy... Hope you enjoy this "Peace" of Paradise ! I'm crazy about my family and look for any excuse to celebrate life! Hope you join us!

Judy purchased this house in 2006

Why Judy 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: two hydro bikes, 2 kayaks, a paddle boat, a paddle board, and a canoe. All those toys are included in the price of the rental. If you want to boat on the lake, you can rent the pontoon from Lake Arrowhead Boat Rental LLC which is conveniently docked at the house for $195.00/day or $1200/week. Just let us know. And for those that like to fish: we have some of the biggest bass living right under our dock!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a blast!

It will be a family vacation with wonderful, meaningful memories for a lifetime.

Thanks for opening up your place for us!

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent Memorial Day weekend at the Brock's and truly felt at home. Judy was more than accommodating before, during and after our stay. She is very responsive. The home was perfectly equipped with kitchen gadgets and the odds and ends making our stay extremely comfortable. This just covers the inside. The outside of the home is a delight. We spent much of the weekend on the back deck(s) lounging and using the water toys. We had never used a hydro bike, let alone two! The kayaks, paddle board, paddle boat and hammock were all used. The Arrowhead community has everything you need, fishing, golfing, hiking, tennis and a pool if you dont like to go in the lake and its just an hour from town. We are already looking forward to our return to Lake Arrowhead at the Brock's! Thanks for having us.

So relaxing and so much fun!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for adults to relax while watching the kids have so much fun with the water toys. The house inside is very comfortable, bright, and everything is in perfect order. We spent half of fall break there, mostly on the back deck and riding the pontoon boat. The Arrowhead community has everything you need, fishing, golfing, hiking, tennis and a pool if you don't like to go in the lake, although the lake water is nice and clear. swimming at 10-15 feet, you can still see the bottom. We also had dinner at the clubhouse which is beautifully decorated. I recommend to go during sunset. The view is amazing.

We had three 11 year old girls with us and not once we heard "I'm bored" because there's so much to do with all the water toys. Their favorite was the water trampoline and they used it for hours while us adults just chilled on the deck with cocktails, by the way, bring extra ice.

We are definitely coming back, but next time for a full week.

Judy, thank you so much for the great accommodations and for being so flexible with our stay!!! Love it, loved it, loved!

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We heard some great things about Lake Arrowhead, and really wanted to give it a shot for a week vacation getaway. Here's a quick review of what to expect and why we enjoyed it:

1) The Dock: The dock is one of the largest on the lake. It has a nice area for a fire, chairs, umbrellas, and a nice area for tanning. You won't be pressed for room if you need area to just spread out and enjoy the view of the lake. It's also located far enough away from the "no wake" zone of the lake to have calm waters to swim/boat in, but close enough to get to the fun quickly if you want to take out the Pontoon Boat.

2) The Pontoon boat (AKA the White Dragon-my name for it): You are given access to a Pontoon boat to zip around the lake in at around 20 miles an hour. It's perfect for tubing (not intense tubing, that is, but definitely fun and worth some good photo moments). The pontoon boat is also large enough to comfortably fit probably 10 people to travel the lake, explore its coves, eat lunch, find a rope swing, a calm hidden swimming area, etc. I even fished out of it while I was there. Very convenient to have that.

3) Other motor-less boats: You are also given access to two kayaks, a canoe, a paddle boat, water bikes, and a standing water pad to row on. There were times when my group just took out the canoe and kayaks and explored the lake. It was a work out, as the lake isn't necessarily tiny, but well worth it, and made swimming that much more rewarding. The lake is the cleanest and freshest in Georgia, by the way.

4) Water Toys: At your disposal are tubes, noodles, snorkeling gear, swimming fins, other floaties, life jackets, etc. When swimming, we made use of all of these. Very fun. We were a group of 20 year olds, but I can imagine it being very rewarding if we had young kids with us as well.

5) The house: The house was very spacious, homey, and cozy. Everything was clean, you could tell. The beds were comfortable, there were several televisions, one large one in the basement with Xfinity cable (watched some football, baseball, and tennis while we were just relaxing throughout the day). The views from the house are perfect. Two large sliding doors look out onto the dock from the top and bottom floor. If you're concerned of not being able to watch your children from the house, worry no more. Great views.

6) Location: You are about half an hour from a large town to go to Walmart, find a good place to eat, etc.

Loved our stay here, and we will be back. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you! I know potential guests will love reading your review. It was so nice to meet you and your sweet wife. Please come again. We expect you to join our "Boomerang" club and return often. No longer guests, but friends coming back to their Home Away from home! Godspeed! PS..."The White Dragon" it is! Look to see it officially christened with its new name!! Judy
