Beautiful and clean home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a relaxing and fun Easter weekend at Autumn Cove. My family and I live far apart and past meetups in hotels were stressful and never relaxing but this was exactly what we wanted for a family meetup. The house is clean and has many amenities. Checking in and out was easy and the instructions were clear. It is accessible to the grocery store, restaurants, shops, and other fun activities. The boat rental was right down the street. Everything was so easy. The grill, washer and drier, and dish washer were very nice to have. There were plenty of games and the tv had Netflix. It was impossible to get bored. Our stay was short and it was a bit too cold to swim so we hope to come back in the warmer months.

We have no complaints about the house and were very happy with our experience. Thank you so much!!

We rented this awesome home for a short weekend away. My husband played in the Chance Crawford Softball Tournament that was being held in Roanoke. This house made the hour drive to the ball fields well worth it !!! We loved every minute we were in the house. It was clean and it had way more things stocked in the cabinets than i had expected. The children's toys being there was a great surprise since at last minute we had to end up bringing our two young children, it's nice to know there are family oriented rental homes out there !! We will definitely be keeping the contact information for this location and we will visit agin!

A family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for a week long getaway. The house is comfortable and in a "no wake" zone which is desirable for noise reduction from boat traffic. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and the homeowner was quick to respond to a question via email we had thought of while in route to the house. It's very nice for bigger families or couples getting away as each bedroom has its own full bathroom and the rooms are away from each other, although if you are in the downstairs bath, you can hear the person in the bathroom above. We brought our dog. He loved it. The downstairs is super quiet and we felt safe leaving him while we ventured off during the day.The upstairs deck is perfect if you are traveling with someone who cannot do stairs, but would like to sit outside and breathe the lake air! We loved staying downstairs and having our own living room and patio. There were lots of games, puzzles, ect. for kids. Lastly, my cousin was able to visit us by boat and easily tie up his bass boat to the dock. We would stay in this home again. Thank you!!
