Beautiful Home!

  • 4 of 5
Our family really enjoyed this beautiful home! The house was fully equip with everything you would need to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. My only disappointment was the view, you can't see the lake from the house or decks! I'm sure it is due to zoning restrictions but it sure is a shame.
Terri Silver, the property manager, was amazing! She was extremely helpful and gave great recommendations on things to do in the area.

Wonderful Home!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful family vacation with our children and grandchildren at this home. The children loved sliding on the sliding board into the lake and we all enjoyed boat and jet ski trips around the lake. We drove to Grandfather Mountain one day...but other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed relaxing at the house and on the dock. The living areas are large enough for everyone to spread out and the bedroom situation worked great for us.

Terri, the property manager, is great to work with and answers all questions quickly and thoroughly. She is so helpful. We hope to return to this wonderful home next year!

Perfect Family Reunion Setting

  • 5 of 5
This was the prefect setting for our family reunion. Everyone enjoyed luxurious sleeping and bathroom accommodations. We comfortably watched the World Cup finals in the big family room. Meals were easily prepared in the large well-stocked kitchen and on the big grill, and we were all able to sit together around the big dining table. Being on the lake was the icing on the cake.

wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place for families. The grandparents , parents, and grandkids all loved it. There was plenty of space for everyone to feel comfortable. The water access and dock was great. The path down to the dock was a little slippery in some shady spots but we learned to step on the mulch in those spots. Some of the beds sit really tall which can be a challenge for someone older or younger but we all slept great after the long days on the water. The kitchen and extra refrigerator down stairs was perfect. We never ate out while we were there. We were able to visit Linville Caverns, Linville Falls, Gem Mountain, and Little Switzerland. The property manager was very nice and helpful. We hope to go again and would highly recommend it.
