Best Vacation Ever

  • 4 of 5
Our family had a lovely time on this beautiful cabin on a private lake. It is a well-maintained cabin and grounds with ample amenities. There were 10 of us (2 young children), and there was plenty of room to gather around the table for dinner or in the living room for conversation and games. The lake is shallow but clear and we spent many fun hours swimming, fishing, and boating. We had the use of two kayaks, a canoe, a rowboat, and a pedal boat. The boats were somewhat worn, but all were fine for padding the lake. We saw beaver, herons, eagles, turkey vultures, woodpeckers, etc., and white-tailed deer and a wolf. Fire pit is right by the dock. Lots of firewood. The two loft bedrooms are beautiful with stunning views of the lake; they are also open to the living areas, so it requires some flexibility with large groups. There is a lower level with a private bedroom, another very small private room with bunk beds, and a large family room with a futon. Kitchen was great for cooking and we used the grill on the deck every day. Lounged on the swing or the lawn chairs. The managers were very responsive when we asked for anything. Our only complaint is that the refrigerator needs fixing. We had to mop up a small pool of water inside the refrigerator every other day. I'd recommend that you ask if the refrigerator has been fixed before you rent.

Know what you are getting and what you are not

  • 3 of 5
My extended family and I spent last week at both the main cabin and the guest cabin. There are many wonderful points to the cabins and the property. But the above description is at best misleading and at worst plan incorrect about what you are and are not getting at this property.
First of all, the main cabin does not have 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It has 1 real bedroom and 1 full bathroom. It has a half bath in the fully-finished basement and one full bathroom with walk-in shower (no tub) on the main floor of the main cabin. Two other "bedrooms" are on the second level of the main cabin which is a loft-style level, with the sleeping areas open to the main floor of the main cabin. One bed on the second level is tucked under the eave and only a small child could sleep there comfortably as there is no head room above it.
The "guest cabin" is in fact a bunkhouse, with all beds in one area, again no sleeping privacy at all and the bathroom in that cabin has a walk-in shower, toilet and sink in a space of no larger than 8' by 8' and possibly smaller.
The main cabin does have beds to sleep 10 people but it did not have living space to comfortably accommodate 10 people, much less more if you are using the guest cabin to sleep additional people. In the living room, there are two couches seating 5-6 adults squeezed and room to pull up maybe one more chair for seating.
The balcony off the main floor had one outdoor table with 3 plastic chairs and the grill. The balcony is about 6 feet wide running the length of the house (25-30') so even if you had more chairs people would have to sit in a straight row. There were two more plastic chairs down by the water so we ended up driving into Virginia and bought enough plastic chairs so everyone could sit at the same time outside. The balcony gets full sun anytime after noon with no shade other than the very small umbrella over the table.
There were 2 kayaks and one canoe made available (along with others) but only one kayak paddle and one canoe paddle, not one pair of canoe paddles but ONE canoe paddle. The "sandy play area" is not sandy but gritty and rocky requiring water shoes for foot comfort.
What is great about this property is the privacy of the lake and the beauty of the surrounding woods. The cabin is quite comfortable for 6-8 people. Plus the kitchen in the main cabin is clean and very well equipped, both in appliances and utensils. And the view from both cabins is wonderful.
