Beautiful home with lots of room for everyone but be aware of the steps leading down to the lake.

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from our week long stay at Catfish Cove and the home is truly a treasure. Six lovely bedrooms and 4 bathrooms was just right for our group of 12. I don't think there was anything that we needed/wanted that was not furnished AND the Bunn Ice Tea Maker was wonderful. The location is quiet and we saw a mother doe and her twin fawns feeding outside the house. There are 2 screened in porches and a wonderful swing set that our younger grandchildren enjoyed. The only tricky thing is navigating the 100 steps leading down to the covered 2 slip dock. The steps are made of wood and do not set level with the ground so you need to watch your footing and they become slippery after a rain. We had 2 slips during the week. That being said: Catfish Cove served us well! A big Thank You to Jayme, our contact for the week: quick responses to all of our questions.

Thanksgiving family gathering

  • 3 of 5

Three generations of family stayed comfortably in Catfish Cove. There could have been some improvements on the stay: Gas fireplace did not work, jetted tub was not in working order, ice machine was not available, gas grill had been put away for the winter. Pat the manager offered it we needed the grill, she would bring out of storage. We had not planned to use the grill, but if you need the grill, confirm its availability as well as the other items mentioned above.

There is a painting in the living area that was slightly offensive with the variety of age of family members on this trip, maybe an option would be a covering for the painting.

One small bag of ice was provided, however for 18 people needed more ice. Neither icemaker in the refrigerators appeared to work, however, we were a short-term stay so did not bother with a call about this.

Kitchen equipment was well stocked and we were able to cook for a large crowd.

Several beds in the house need upgrading, but again for 2 nights, we dealt with it.

No mention of the pass for the state park, however, we would not have used. Just saying for other reference.

We mentioned the issues at departure, but have heard nothing from the owners about the lack of working items. It would have been a nice gesture on the owner's part to at least acknowledge the items that were advertised but not working or not easily available.

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 12 and stayed very comfortably in this house. Love the bunk beds for the kids!! Only negative was temperature was not regulated throughout house very well. Extremely cold downstairs and too hot upstairs. House is very well equipped with everything you need for your vacation. Pat, property manager, is awesome!

Family reunion at Catfish Cove

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home on the lake, quite, peaceful. Great location for our 3 families to come together for a vacation.

House is in great shape with a fully equipped kitchen for cooking in. Could use some minor upgrades but a perfect vacation stay. We look forward to a return to Catfish Cove in the future.

Family week at Catfish Cove

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a fun and relaxing week at Catfish Cove. The kitchen was well supplied with cookware, bakeware, utinsels and dishes. There was a refrigerator in both the kitchen and in the lower level, as well as an ice machine on the porch. It was very convenient to have a boat dock with the property, so we keep our boat in the water and jump in our boat to tour the lake, as we so desired. We encountered only one issue with the VRBO information on the property. The VRBO information said that there would be two boat slips available at the dock. When we arrived, we found that one of the dock boat slips was filled with a pontoon boat owned by a local gentleman. We had anticipated bringing two boats with us, but at the last minute, it was decided that we would only bring one of the boats. We were thankful that we hadn't brought the second boat when there wasn't more than one boat space available. Since the pontoon boat is available for rent, we rented it for a day which allowed a big group of us to enjoy the lake togther. The VRBO information should be updated to reflect the actual number of boat slips currently available to the Catfish Cove renters. We had a great week at Catfish Cove and would recommend this house to everyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at Catfish Cove! I am so sorry you encountered a problem with the boat slip. There should NOT have been a boat at the slip. I will talk with our house manager and get this taken care of.
