Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our first visit to SML. The days were filled with boating, golfing and lots of reading. The serenity and the beauty of the lake makes me wish that we lived much closer!

We had a wonderful time during our stay at the house. We were looking for a relaxing time and found exactly what we were looking for. The area is pretty secluded so if you're looking for privacy, you'll find it.

There was a family of deer that would come around the lake in the mornings. The screened in porch is a great feature and was a great spot to enjoy the views of the lake.

The owners were very accommodating regarding any questions we had. I would visit again....

Stunning relaxing weekend on the lake!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I throughly enjoyed our long weekend here! Even though it rained and drizzled we relaxed, cooked out, played foosball and enjoyed fishing and hanging out with evening cocktails on both porches for different views of the lake. The house is immaculate with nice new appliances. The only complaint was our trip was too short! Can't wait to come back next summer for a week!! Thanks for sharing your lovely lake house!!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering the house our first observation was how clean everything was!! The house is in a private setting with an open mountain view from the dock. Owner was very responsive and easy to work with. Well stocked kitchen. Furniture in great condition and comfortable. Would definitely rent again!

We had a blast!!!

  • 5 of 5

We (My wife, 2 daughters ages 6 months, and 3 years, 2 nieces ages 6 and 8 years, and I), truly enjoyed our week at this house. I am from this area, but have lived in Saudi Arabia for 11 years. We rented another lake house one cove over last year, but really fell in love with this one. From the moment you walk in, you feel right at home. We loved the "feel" of this house from the start. We also loved the views from the dock, and did our fair share of swimming. Alice and her father-in-law, Dale, are more than helpful and resolved any problems we had (only very minor problems) very promptly. She even refunded a part of the rental for a minor problem faced with the TV. I would recommend renting a boat...hard to fully enjoy the lake without one at least for 2 days. I would recommend this property to anyone, and next time we visit the SML area, we will definitely try to book this property early. Thanks again Alice.

Lovely week at the the Lake

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, and our two girls (ages 7 & 8) enjoyed a lovely 4th of July week vacation at the lake. The house was not fancy, but it was clean, and big enough for the four of us. It has a nice location in a fairly quiet cove, and close to Mitchell's Marina where we rented a boat for the week and ate several meals. I enjoyed relaxing on the screened-in porch, and down on the covered dock during the mornings and evenings, especially early in the week. Once the 4th of July holiday arrived, it was a bit less peaceful on and near the lake, but that is to be expected. We would definitely consider staying at this property again.
