Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very precious time in Big Canoe. Staying in "Paradise" lives up to the name. Your home was perfect for our family and also on Sunday when we hosted an after the wedding brunch. The rain on Saturday was timed perfectly and made the special day a bit dreamy and the golfers got in 0 holes in sunshine. Thank you for sharing your blessings with others.

Gorgeous spacious well equipped and completely decorated for the holidays!

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to please 14 women, but our tennis team stayed at the beautiful house for what will hopefully be our annual end-of-season retreat... and each and every one of us was thrilled with the place. The minute we entered the circular foyer, we were in awe of the amazing lighted Christmas tree. It was cold outside, but warm inside as someone warmed the home for us with heat and lights on all of the Christmas decorations before our arrival. So many charming details-- too many to name. The kitchen was well-equipped and we were very close to the tennis courts (1.7 miles away and some of us even walked.) We loved it and we will hopefully be back next year!

Beautiful Property

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful property and perfect for our large family gathering. The views are magnificent and we enjoyed hiking as well as using the canoe. However, I could not rate this a "5" for the following reasons: (1) the outdoor grill needs to be replaced asap as it is a fire hazard. Only 2 of the 4 burners work because of severe rust on the gas lines. We did use it but half way through , fire started to come out of the back of the grill, again because of the rust. (2) There were no adult size pool cues and most of the child size cues did not have tips. Also the rack was broken. (3) The TV in the living room (main floor) had very very poor reception.

All of these issues could be easily fixed/repaired and then this would certainly be a 5 rated property.

Owner's Response: Peg We thank you once again for staying at Paradise. We appreciate our guests very much. As a result we have replaced the outdoor grill with at top of the line stainless steel Weber gas grill with electric start per your request. Also we have lined the area the grill sits in with concrete board to safegaurd against any possible fires as a result of its use. We now have approximately 6 adult cues and 2 child cues that do have tips and the rack has been repaired. Our apologies for this. There is also container now that our guests will be able to access that has extra tips, chalk and glue in case any tips come off in the future. Lastly we have had a technician work on the reception of the Tv in the den. We thank you once again and appreciate your input.

Perfect family home

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect! All we had to bring was food. We enjoyed coffee by day and wine by night, all with exquisite views. The owner is exceedingly helpful and responsive, though we did have some trouble getting through the gate (names that were on the list were not in the gate's database); however, the owner quickly resolved all name issues. We will definitely return!

Awesome Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I rented the place for a long weekend get away with 12 of my long time friends. Could not have asked for a better place. The house is beautiful, clean, well stocked and very inviting. Plenty of room for all of us to gather in the kitchen while food is being prepared and then relaxing on the back porch overlooking a stunning view. Plenty of hiking trails and a fun ride to the lower and then upper waterfalls (4X4 Required). If you like seeing nature at its finest..... Come to Big Canoe. Deer are everywhere with an occasional Bear sighting. Thanks for the memories. We will be back.

A beautiful mountain weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend in this fabulous house! The house was very clean and well stocked for our every need. We used the canoe that was provided with the house for fishing and just enjoying the lake. There was plenty of beds for our group of 15. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
