"Stayed the past weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday with some close family & friends. The home & setting are absolutely perfect for small groups seeking a nice relaxing getaway. From the moment you walk into this beautiful home, it's strikingly clear that the owner put a great deal of thought into staging and supplying renters with everything needed for an amazing stay. The sprawling upper-deck is well-equipped with an efficient BBQ and comfy patio set. Everyone really enjoyed the kitchen, preparing some delicious meals (particularly, an epic breakfast) and catching up over a few drinks. On Saturday, we braved the chilly Fall night to build a fire down by the water. The fire pit area is atop a small, private beach with plenty of seating & tall bushes planted around the perimeter to give it an intimate feel. We had a blast reminiscing, creating new memories, and making s'mores. The lake is of course, the main attraction - I made a point of not missing each sunrise & sunset throughout our stay. Throw in the breathtaking orange/yellow foliage in the distance and you've got a scene only Bob Ross could paint. We made a quick trip as well for a hike at picturesque Hickory Run State Park - about 20 mins from the home. We did not have a chance utilize the community amenities (Pool, Clubhouse), though there are clearly plenty of activities available, with something for everyone. The fireplaces were also great source of warmth and enjoyment, and the hot tub was soothing after the long hike. It goes without saying, but this home has it all.
The owner is extremely easy to work with, and provides step-by-step, detailed documentation in addition to suggested attractions in the local area. I've stayed at a fair share of rental properties, but this one by far was one of the best. Our stay was memorable and perfect. Highly recommend this home for anyone seeking a waterfront retreat with gorgeous details inside & out. Thanks to Luis & family for sharing your amazing home with us!"
