great home and location
Came up on a Friday by myself and my 2 dogs. The drive was nice and only a little over 2 hours from Columbia. Had a few friends come up for the weekend. Too bad it rained for 3 days straight and we didn't really get to do much but stay at the house, but it was still a good time. The weather was nice Monday through Wednesday and I finally got to spend some time outside. I had planned to fish a lot so I wondered if there were any fish in the lake. There was a huge school of bream around the dock. I would estimate there were anywhere from 25-40 fish around the dock at any given time. I decided not to catch them because they were too entertaining. It was more fun to feed them. Also saw some bass but was never able to catch any. I never got to try out the canoe. I went to grab it and flip it over almost grabbed a snake that was halfway under it. I quickly backed away, then looked around and saw more snakes around it I didn't see at first. They were using it as shelter from the rain I suppose. Tried again the next few days and they were always around the canoe. Finally on my last day I decided to try and scare the snakes away, but it rained all day and my last chance to use the canoe had passed, which was pretty disappoining.
Of the 7 days I was there, only 3 days did it not rain. I doubt this was normal, but nevertheless, a game room downstairs with pool table/dartboard/ping pong table would have made the rainy days/nights better (at least on the days my friends were there).
The house itself is very nice and all the amenities were there. The furnishings were nice and appliances were all very good. The deck is huge, and the grill was awesome. Ingles is not far away and was surprisingly big with lots of stuff I didn't think they would have. I did have some trouble finding an ATM machine so make sure you bring cash before you get there. I grilled out pretty much every day/night but there were some nice looking restaurants right on the lake that looked really good. All in all it was a very good trip, despite the weather, and I didn't want to leave. I would definately recommend to just about anyone... especially if you love the lake or the mountains.

Owner's Response: The idea of the game room downstairs is something that we have planned. Rain has been an issue in the Carolinas, and Georgia over the last few months. We keep all of the vegetation well trimmed around the property. Thank you for your review.
