Family Thanksgiving time

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 9, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
We had a wonderful time at the Boyd Villa!! There was plenty of room for our large extended family ages from 6 weeks old to 80! Between both kitchens we had everything we needed to cook all our meals. We went on hikes and played games on the big field. We enjoyed relaxing and sharing with each other around the warm fireplace and of course some big pool tournaments down stairs! We would highly recommend this beautiful place for some great family time!! Beverly was very helpful and great to work with!

Beautiful Retreat

  • Submitted: Oct 17, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
Our family meets each summer for get togethers. My son Brian found the Boyd Villa this summer. It has been one of the nicest places that we have stayed. Plenty of room and everything you need for a great visit. Some of the family come up from the gulf coast and we go south from Virginia. Ages from 3 to 80 and all of us had a wonderful visit. The bunk room kept the 3 kids happy......they loved their retreat!!!! We also rented the pontoon a few times. It is a beautiful home and we all loved all of our family time there!!! Thanks very much!

Nothing compares

  • Submitted: Oct 17, 2013
  • Stayed: Mar 2013
We have stayed at the Boyd Villa a few times for a
Family Reunion and my husband has used it for his
Company's annual working retreat. This year, due to
my husband having added employees, he needed a
second home in Big Canoe. We told the agent we
were renting the Boyd Villa and would like
something smaller but comparable.
"Well, there really is nothing that compares to the
Boyd Villa, but I have....."
Wow. Was he right. The second house, while in Big
Canoe, was not even in the same league as Boyd
Villa.
We look forward to staying at Boyd Villa again soon.

Family Reunion

  • Submitted: Oct 17, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
My extended family rented the Boyd Villa in August 2013. While I live in Big Canoe, some flew in from Seattle, San Francisco, & Phoenix, while others drove from Virginia, North Carolina, and Ohio. Because they traveled so far, I wanted to make sure they had top-notch accommodations. After hours checking out rentals online, and visiting others in person, I emailed my family and said, there is one clear option that you will love, The Boyd Villa. I told them the rental price and they thought it was very reasonable given how many people can stay at the Villa, and how much more they have paid when staying at hotels. It's even better than a luxury hotel, because our family was able to be all together, in the comfort of an upscale, beautifully decorated home. Our needs were diverse, ranging in age from 2 months, to 10 years, 40 years and 80 years old.
I can’t imagine too many rental homes offering the quality accommodations that the Villa offers. You just don’t find this caliber of furniture, bedding, well-stocked kitchen, and thorough cleaning and maintenance that the Boyds offer in their own personal home. It was such a pleasure to see friends and family mingle and relax in the comfort of the Villa. The French doors were open to the fresh air, and the party flowed easily from the comfy, lodge-style living room to the back deck with views of the Lake. We have wonderful memories at the Villa, which feels like part of our family experience now. To make everyone equally happy, most of the bedrooms have very pretty views of sparkling Lake Petit. Other bedrooms had their own charm, such as the 6-bed kids' bunk room. Constant rain was not a problem since the views of the Lake, lovely décor, and our ability to cook homemade meals in the gourmet kitchen made for a great vacation, despite the weather. We enjoyed the Jeep Trail hike with gushing waterfalls (due to so much rain!), murmuring streams, and lush greenery. We rented a pontoon boat in the evening. When the weather improved the kids had fun building sand castles at the beach. Hiking and playtime on the beach and lake are great, but they’re even better when you have a beautiful place to “come home to” afterwards. Big Canoe is wonderful on its own, but the Boyd Villa really elevates your stay to something luxurious and memorable.

Four generation family gathering

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 31, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
Our extended family just spent a week at the Boyd Villa in Big Canoe with four generations present, ranging in age from 2 to 82. I am pleased to say that the descriptions and pictures in the internet listing are accurate. If anything, they don't adequately show how gorgeous the house is and what a wonderfully beautiful view there is from the patios. We were a large group looking for a place where family could gather from VA, OK, LA and FL and where we could all be together as we anticipated our parent's 60th wedding anniversary and spend a week just fellowshipping together and catching up. The Boyd Villa certainly exceeded our expectations. Everything was clean and well maintained and the kitchen was equipped with all the necessary utensils. We enjoyed being able to cook and eat our meals together in the house. Having multiple bathrooms on all three levels was very convenient and having two laundry rooms was a plus. The wireless WiFi worked and so those who wanted to stay in touch were able to. We took advantage of the amenities within Big Canoe and enjoyed swimming, canoeing, boating in the pontoon boats on the lake, hiking and visitng the children's play ground -- all without leaving the Big Canoe community. Beverly was a joy to work with and she checked in by phone during the week to make sure that we were doing ok. We are all very grateful that we found such a great place where we could be together, enjoy the beauty of nature and the peace and quiet and yet have enough activities to keep all entertained. I would certainly recommend this property.
