Guestbook comments from the owner

Doug and I both had a wonderful time at your house. The week was just what the doctor ordered, and we were sad to leave. Everything was perfect and we loved making it our home for the week. The porch was amazing and the dogs were in 7th Heaven with all the swimming we did down at the lake. It was the best vacation we’ve had in awhile.





Thank you so much.

Lovely home and beautiful area.

The house is lovely and it has a very homey feel. The deck is awesome. We had breakfast on the deck every morning that the weather allowed. Really enjoyed swimming and kayaking on the quiet lake. Would definitely consider going back next year.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Our family (wife, kids ten and under, and labradoodle) had an amazing stay. The house is beautiful and peaceful, and the neighbors and their dogs super friendly. The lake is unique with no developed shoreline and makes for 360 degrees of breathtaking beauty when you are on the water. (Walking down to the lake is a small price to pay for this.) We caught some nice redbreast bream as well as some smaller smallmouth and spotted bass. Shoal creek falls is right around the corner by car or boat and is also incredibly beautiful. We hope to return soon as there is so much more to explore!

Smokey Mountain Thanksgiving

  • 4 of 5
We had the best Thanksgiving holiday at this beautiful home. We lacked nothing, the home was warm, comfortable and had everything we needed to have a fabulous holiday. Our hosts were even kind enough to expand their sattelite tv package so that we wouldn't miss our favorite NFL team in action. And to top it all off the fishing was great! There is also plenty of literature & tips to local hiking and attractions, which was very helpful.
We even brought home a souvenier, a stray dog that had befriended us and was seemingly abandoned, is now happy in his new Mass. home with his new name "Murphy". Thanks Heidi & Kevin, if ever we travel back to the area, we will definately want to stay in your home.
