Our stay was wonderful but a few small changes could have made it even more comfortable. The kitchen cookware, plates, silverware could stand to be checked and restocked. The house needs some better skillets, more mixing and serving bowls and dishes and silverware for at least the nine people it is listed as housing. The house also did not have a DVD player, although the listing lists that it should have one. Another way to improve the property would be to screen in the deck with the table, off of the kitchen area. We loved that area and spent a lot of time playing cards there but found it challenging in the evening as the bugs came out. Otherwise, the trip was awesome. The house was very roomy for 9 and was quite clean and comfortable. This house would be perfect for spending most of your time at the lake but if you intend to spend a lot of your vacation going to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge or hiking then plan to spend a lot of time in the car. The distance might not seem all that far but the traffic makes the trip seem very long. The privacy of the cove was spectacular. We had the whole cove to ourselves and spent lots of time hanging out of the dock and floating in the water. This was a wonderful way to spend a week and everyone in our group would rent this house again.
