Great time, Great place.

The ONLY draw back to this house rental is the walk down to the dock - actually the walk back up. If you're in shape, you'll be fine. If you're not, you'll get good cardio.
We parked a trailer, a large truck, an suv and a sedan in the driveway and didn't have to move them for us to shoot basketball in the driveway at the garage. Plenty of driveway space. Little kids could bring their ride on toys for the flat part of the driveway - lots of room.
paved patio area has a hot tub, fire pit, and picnic table - oh and a tree swing that swings high :-) We used the hose to bathe the dogs after their time in the lake. The deck has a great table and chairs set - spent every morning out there watching the sun glisten off the lake. Trees gave privacy and shade. The home you can see has a family renting it the whole summer and they were very nice and kept to themselves but were friendly and offered advice for us for things to do, etc. since this was our first time to the lake. The interior was immaculate. tastefully done baths. tile flooring downstairs. slate in the foyer. hardwood in the kitchen and dining. berber in the liv rm and 3 bedrm areas were carpeted - 1 was hardwood. we rented a boat for a couple days and the dock worked perfect but even if you dont have a boat, the dock is awesome! we had kayaks and it was easy access to get in them from the dock; sun bathing from the dock, swimming - a ladder to get back on the dock. our dogs even jumped off the dock to get their toy and swam back to the bank. The cove was great for skiing and water tubing! There is a swing at the lake too and a fire pit area but we didn't use it because it was dry the week we were there. we did use the one at the house though. The area was perfect - close to shopping- food and gifts; close to the Wisp resort which has alot to offer every age; white water rafting; golf; about a 1/2 hour to Swallow Falls - a fun walking trail of several waterfalls - gorgeous...take your camera! we were on the internet every day with no problems. The realty office was sooo nice!!! And initially I had sent some emails to the owner and they responded right away each time. There ended up being just 8 of us (plus our 2 dogs) and for that group, we'd rent this place again. We loved it here - both the house and the grounds (property) as well as the lake itself and the dock and the area of shopping and things to do.
