This is the second time we have stayed at the Great Escape. It is a nice, large house. We go to Big Canoe at least once a year and love, love, love the area. Our dogs come with us and cannot wait to arrive. It is so nice to have a home that can accommodate our family with teens and adults, plus our furry friends. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes. Everything is always in good repair and nicely decorated. Our visit prior to this was over Christmas and there was a Christmas tree up! It is amazing to put that level of detail into a home that you rent. Allen is very easy to work with.
The one thing that is less of a positive to us is that the home is a cluster home, meaning it is close to other homes rather than in a wooded area alone. I prefer to not see other homes. That being said, this is our first choice of a home when we come to Big Canoe. The layout, decor, willingness to allow pets, and ease of renting with Allen make it the place for us.
