We (a group of three ladies) stayed in this property in September 2018 for 5 nights. It was a very nice experience with many great amenities.
The Pros: The house was very clean, furnished sparsely, but comfortably. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils and plates, the fridge with ice, a few essential spices and other commodities (e.g. coffee filters, toilet paper and paper towels). The hot tub was a huge bonus and it was a bit rainy for a few days, so a nice drink in the hot tub meant that we could sit outside. The dock was also very nice and had a canoe and some kayaks, which were great. Life jackets were also available. The lake was still warm and very pleasant. There was a nice black dog called Cisco that visited us daily and made himself quite at home, though I believe his owners lived next door. Les, the owner, was very supportive. He helped answer my questions, and tried to deal with some of the challenges we faced when a storm knocked out the power to Huntsville and the surrounding area, and destroyed the internet.
Cons: This house is on a really steep hill, and while I knew this from other reviews, I was not entirely prepared for the level of steepness, both to get up to the house and to get down to the docks. It would not be suitable for anything less than a 4 wheel drive vehicle, and, if you went down to the docks and forgot something, you'd be cursing yourself for 450 steps on the way back up.
We would stay here again. For the price and what it offered it was very appropriate for our needs. It was an enjoyable few days and offered us the chance to get away from it all and relax - yet it was close enough to Huntsville that we could shop and get groceries with relative ease.
