The stay at the lake house was more than we could have asked for. There are convenient stores within 5 minutes’ drive from the house and the big stores (Wal-mart, Ingles Ect..) are only 15 minutes away. We celebrated my son graduation from college while we were there. He invited a lot of people but the house never felt crowed. The open layout of the den and kitchen was great. The big screened in porch was a plus as that's where all the young people hung out at night and on the dock during the day. There is lots of open water to ski, wakeboard and whatever you wanted to do. Nice back yard to cook out. We plan to book it again in 2015.
