  • 25th Anniversary get away

    "What an amazing place! A perfect get away from all the stresses so that we could enjoy our 25th Anniversary. It was like being in a storybook fairy tale...especially the first morning we woke up to a thick fog, which of course I had to get up and take a million pictures! We would love to go back in the fall for the colors...since we miss out on that living in Florida. Highly recommended...don't miss out!!!"

  • Beautiful location

    "We just returned from our biannual motorcycle trip to the Smokey Mountains. There were 6 adults and we always try to find a different place to stay. This home is beautiful with a small but nice view of the mountains from a wonderful deck. The entire development was beauty. Everything we needed was the. The only problem was there was no water pressure on the upstairs shower and downstairs bathroom sink. Having grills available to use made it nice to cook and not have to eat out all the time. Would recommend this home"

  • Great for a 3 generation vacation

    "Lakefront Retreat is Perfect. The 10 of us enjoyed ourselves immensely. The kitchen included seasonings, bowls with lids to store left overs, clips to fasten bags of food, plus 2 frig drawers & a wine cooler, as well as 2 refrigerators, 2 dishwashers, 2 washing machines, 2 dryers & 5 full bathrooms. WE didn't USE one of the showers, nor the Jacuzzi tubs, or 1 of the dishwashers. Everything else was used including the Keurig, the waffle maker, the grill, both ovens, & both microwaves. Monitoring how many showers & machines are using water at any one time may help improve water pressure when needed for getting shampoo out of long hair. The 15 foot diving board was used by 5 of us. The others watched their antics! All the water toys were used in addition to the ones we brought with us. The pontoon boat was a nice trip 4 times. We'd anchor somewhere & jump in the lake. Granddad would take pictures of the different scenery. Bear Creek Marina was a convenient 24 hrs a day credit card site. The nearer marina was never open when we would have wanted to be out. The boat does require having at least 2 able people other than the captain to use it. The lake wasn't busy at all during the week, & not uncomfortably busy on Sunday. Young adults would SUP three miles or more at a time! Grandy would manage 0.5-1.0 miles paddling kayak or SUP. The movie theater was a real hit with the younger grandkids. Probably would have been with the young adults also, but the Olympics were calling us every night! Pool table challenged the families - kids vs parents, or sons vs fathers, or siblings competing with each other. The Wii Rock Band was great! Kids & parents took turns playing and singing! Foosball table got a real workout. Hikes in the nearby Catawba Section of Lake James St Park and the South Mtn St Pk were also fun. Youngest ones hunted Pokemon while grandparents watched and the older ones went to explore Black Mtn one afternoon & had dinner. The new house next door was moved into while we were there, so complaints about the building noise should now be finished. The house is 3 stories. The main floor can be accessed without any steps. The lake cannot be reached from the house without doing steps. Lake is very convenient, dock is close, but it is 2 flights of stairs down to the lake, so I'm not suggesting it for people with mobility limitations. Ingles Grocery and Wal-Mart are 8-9 miles away - takes 20 minutes. THIS IS A GREAT PLACE!!"

  • Lake Life

    "This house provides the perfect lake life experience! We spent a full week here and enjoyed every minute. Beautiful views of the lake from inside the house and the semi wrap around porch. Swimming at the dock is fun and safe for children (children should always wear life jackets) and relaxing for adults. This is quiet section of the lake with little boat traffic and low wakes. Children and adults will be entertained by fishing from the dock especially in the evening. My seven year old son caught more than 10 fish one evening! Excellent spot for kayaking (bring your own or rent one from a local store/marina). The owner's personality is southern hospitality at its finest and my family is looking forward to renting this home for years to come."
