"Our family spent one week of bliss in this wonderful home! Outside, there's so much room to breathe and waterfront to enjoy, we truly felt like we had our own private park! Inside, there was so much space, we felt guilty that we didn't even spend time in a few of the more beautiful rooms. Two bathrooms for the master bedroom spoiled us for our return home! River Sports Outfitters delivered our rental kayak and SUP so we owned the refreshing water. Fishing was fantastic and the ping pong matches in the game room were epic! The dock and boathouse are huge -- we spent most of our days there in total relaxation. The spacious porch provided wonderful lake views and a great place to read and relax. We have never rented a house with our own basketball court before! The home is located in a safe, friendly neighborhood of nice homes, which enabled us to go running and take walks with our dogs. Everything you'd need/want (restaurants, shopping, gas, etc.) is in nearby Maryville (10-15 minutes) and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a short drive away (30-40 minutes). Our outstanding experience was matched by our dealings with the owners -- they were first-class, attentive, true to their word, and genuinely caring. We never stayed here before (or knew anyone who did), and we don't know the owners personally, and we were not familiar with the area (we're from Florida), so, truthfully, I was a bit unsettled about what I was getting my family into... at least until we arrived, unpacked, and enjoyed our best family vacation ever! We plan to return next year!"
