"We spent a week at Larry & Pam’s home on Big Creek Lake this summer for our family vacation. We had 6 adults and our 1-year old granddaughter. There was plenty of room for everyone and there are several places around the home to enjoy “quiet time” away from the others. The main floor of the house had 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen, family room area, dining room, and a covered decks on both the front of the house and the back of the house. The big covered deck on the back was where we spent most of our time but it was nice to have the covered deck on the front of the house too. Both of the decks had gates which were very helpful to keep our granddaughter from wandering away from us. The 4th bedroom in the basement was set up like an apartment on one half of the basement with a sitting area, sleeping area and bathroom. It also had a small table and chairs with umbrella, lounge chairs, and porch swing just outside the walkout door. The other half of the basement contained the entertainment area with a ping pong table, foosball table, checkers, etc. The house was very comfortable, clean, and had all the amenities we would ever want. We used the canoe, 2 kayaks, and paddle boat every day and the lake was very quiet, calm, and pristine—it felt like we were the only ones there! Larry gave us the tour when we arrived and stopped by to see how we were doing later in the week. We also enjoyed seeing the geese in the morning and visiting the goats and donkeys with our granddaughter. This is a very private location that is quiet and relaxing. When we weren’t enjoying the covered deck and lake activities we did some hiking about 20 minutes away and would recommend the Greeter Falls trail, Stone Door trail, and the Laurel Falls trail. We also visited the Jack Daniels distillery in Lynchburg and the Chattanooga Aquarium, and played golf one day outside Chattanooga. Each of those activities were about an hour from the house. There was a grocery store about 10 minutes away which was very convenient. Overall the house, location, and vacation were fantastic and Larry & Pam are close by if you need anything. We've been renting homes for our vacations on VRBO and Homeaway for years and I couldn't remember seeing a home where everyone gave a 5-star rating. I'm adding my 5-star rating to the list. Thanks Larry and Pam!"
