Great place group trip!

  • 5 of 5
My group of friends have been coming to LR's homecoming for over 15 years and staying in local hotels. This year we decided to make a change and stay in one location. This place is awesome and had tons of space for everyone! We even rented a pontoon boat while we were there! We will stay here every year if possible!

Fantastic reunion house - fun for all ages!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful home for a fabulous family vacation. We range in age from 1 to 70. This house was absolutely perfect for our family reunion. We watched heron's nesting in the trees above, canoed out to fish, kayaked all over, swam in the cool lake, relaxed in the hot tub and fished from the dock and along the shore as well. We were treated to Friday night fireworks from the ball park across the lake that we could see from the back yard. Our kids loved the spacious game room and the huge, grassy lawn - plenty of room for soccer, horseshoes, etc. We enjoyed a Crawdad's baseball game, an easy day trip up to mine for gold in Blowing Rock, a hike up to Catawba Falls, a fantastic day spent on a rented pontoon boat (complete with tubing!) on the lake. The perfect family vacation. Plenty of room to spread out or come together. 2 awesomely stocked kitchens, complete with enough dishes, silverware, bakeware, etc. to keep our hungry family well fed. Plenty of options for sleeping multiple families - 3 masters and lots of bathrooms. Sheets included was a huge plus. We had fun with the younger kids in the paved carport playing with the large assortment of balls and outdoor equipment. The older kids really enjoyed having their own private space tucked into the back of the game room. Wide variety of DVDs and VHS tapes provided plenty of options for movie night. Owners of this home were very accommodating. We will be renting Camp Run-A-Muk again soon. Looking forward to creating many more memories here.

Wow! what a wonderful home you all have. We came down from Staunton with a few friends and had the LR Womens Soccer team over for dinner Sat. night and you wouldnt have known they were there the house was so big! We brought down a jetski which they enjoyed despite the cold water. They had a wonderful time with pool table, foosball, pingpong, hottub and so much more. There was plenty of kitchens to cook for everyone and plenty of tables to eat at. Nice setting and dock was nice and sunny. So much fun was had by all. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us and allowing us to check out late on Monday since the soccer game was in the afternoon. That made it so much more convenient.We will be back.

Camp RAM holds our #1 spot for family vacations.

  • 5 of 5
I'd like to start by saying your house is fabulous. We were really very comfortable with just a few exceptions and I'd like to share them with you. More on that in a moment. First and foremost, the good:
We loved the layout! We only ended up with 14 so we had plenty of room and privacy for everyone. This is the first home that we have talked about renting again. From the dock to the fire pit to the morning porch and the rec room, there was always a different spot for all us to get together and play games or talk or do what we do best, eat. Which brings me to my personal favorite. Having two kitchens and three refrigerators was a total blessing! A quick run to the store by one or two people was the only reason any of us left the camp all week. You guys have provided so many amenities and "toys" that we didn't need to visit an attraction to have fun. We loved all of the yard games and kayaks, canoe and other lake toys. The hot tub, pool and ping pong tables were used by all of us. We enjoyed playing cards in the game room off the main rec room. Have I mentioned How. Much. Space. there was?? We loved it! There's a rock right across the lake that we docked at and happened upon a trail that led to a boy scout cabin. What fun that trail was to walk. Speaking of fun, we held a field day on Tuesday and boy did we have a blast. Having the whole yard to play in was fantastic!
Now the very short list of negative: Firstly, the spiders are unbearably bad. They are everywhere! And we aren't afraid of a few spiders (in fact, we have been known to take lots of pictures when we see one) but when they're making webs in the chair you sit in or crawling in the hoodie of your jacket, well its a bit much. The other issue we had were the appliances. If we had known that the dishwasher needed to be run twice at times or the oven heated to a much higher degree than you intend, we would have been better prepared and would have rinsed the dishes better and not burned so many dinners. The only other, very minor issue we had was the absence of tvs in the bedrooms. Some nights, after a long day of cooking, cleaning and playing with 14 other people, most of us just wanted to lay in bed and watch a little tv. Adding tvs to the bedrooms would be a huge plus for us but we weren't lost without them either. All in all, we loved your home. We are seriously considering returning next year. Thank you so much for opening your beautiful "camp" to us.

We held our annual women's retreat at this house -- we had 22, and all slept comfortably. The dual kitchens were a gift, and the view of the water is spectacular!

The house has a wonderful relaxed feel. Its the kind of place you just want to never leave..... can't wait to rent it again!!!

excellant choice

  • 5 of 5
This home was truly a home. You felt welcomed as soon as you entered. Everything was in working order. We had been recommended to try this house and I in turn have recommended it to many others. The lake views were specular! We did rent a pontoon boat for 2 days and explored the lake. The water was warm and the dock gave us easy access to it. We enjoyed the kayaks and canoe. The hot tub was very large and worked perfectly. We will be back! The toys provided for the youngest members was a pleasant unexpected surprise. The game room was large.
