This was our first trip to the North Carolina Mtns. It was beautiful. We had a quiet and relaxing stay at the wonderful Shady Rest home. We traveled with 8 people and had no problem with space. The home is very well appointed. In fact, we have rented upwards of 30 VRBO homes all over the southeast and none of them was better appointed than this particular the kitchen. The boats that came with the property worked great with no issues. We considered renting again during Summer Break, but the home is all booked up. I now know why........8 thumbs up from our group!

We loved our stay! We had 5 teenage girls and 2 adults and everyone had an amazing time. The house has a wonderful location and is very comfortable. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get a beautiful mountain and lake getaway.

First I liked to say that the location of this house is awesome! Great view of the lake.

But the yard was not keep up the grass had not been cut. The steps going from the driveway to the door on the second floor where covered in black muck did not want to use them.

The two decks where covered in spider webs. We had to clean them before they could be used. The boat was old and was also filthy. We had to clean the seats and remove all the spider webs before we could use it also. The boat also had starting issue when we arrived and instead of replacing the boat with the second boat while they fix the first boat we had to wait till Tuesday afternoon to use the boat (Turns out the second boat that they advertise was not available to use (verified by the gentleman and lady that came out to fix the first boat as the said it would be a week or so before it would be ready) They did get the boat fixed (It did run but not great).

As for the house it is a nice house but there are a few issues inside. the master bedroom ceiling fan is noisy and as someone else had posted the dishwasher is also very noisy.

I would like to add that the property manager Brian was very helpful!! he returned all my calls and text promptly (as cell service is not great!) Over all I would give this property a 6.5 out of a 10. The lake was beautiful as for everything else I could say that we just had some bad luck but some of the issues where not due to bad luck!!

Owner's Response: Our home is in the mountains and although we have lawn maintenance done regularly the grass will grow faster during the raining season. When it rains leaves fall from the trees onto the concrete stairway leading to the lower level of the house. The water is not always clean because it may come down from the excess that comes from the mountain. At times it leaves the steps not looking spotless. We don’t like that but the house in under a canopy of trees. In this case you can use the inside stairs that lead you to the same place. Being in the mountains daddy long leg spiders are also found outside. We have a pest control company spray regularly but you cannot control the outside. They are harmless and we have not found anything that will get rid of them. In all the years that we have been renting no one has ever complained about them. When we rent our home a Hurricane deck boat is included at NO EXTRA CHARGE and sometimes it has problems. We keep a 20 ft. Four Winns boat in storage for those times when the Hurricane has to be repaired. This season it so happened that the Four Winns was being serviced at the time the Hurricane boat had problems. This is not the usual 2 boats being down at the same time. Since it was going to take longer for the Four Winns to be available we did everything possible to get the Hurricane serviced on a holiday weekend. Check-in was on Monday the boat was taken out a couple of times before it quit. Problem was reported and the mechanic was alerted immediately. Boat was operational on Tuesday afternoon. We worked diligently getting the mechanic to look at it, order the part and replace it by Tuesday afternoon. It's the beginning of the season and mechanics get busy and sometimes they can't take care of everyone and everything the same day but they give us great service every time we call. Notification of any problems goes to our 2 property managers. They respond to our renters in a promptly manner. In addition we publish 2 additional phone #'s where we can be reached. We value our guests and know that they are at Shady Rest to have a good time. We make sure that we take care of them and that their stay is enjoyable. We respond as fast as we can. Our goal is to make the guest happy at all times, but sometimes that's not possible. In the years that we have been renting we have always gotten positive feedback. Please see reviews after this one as reference.

Great Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lake house in mid-April, 2017 for a week while our grandchildren were on spring break. The home itself was very nice, clean and comfortable and large enough for all. The dock provided lots of fishing for the kids and the boat was great fun for everyone. Away from the house, we explored Brevard, enjoyed the town and saw one of the white squirrels. When not fishing or in the boat, we did a lot of hiking in some of the state and federal parks and forests to some of the many waterfalls in the area. The kids loved all the exhibits and activities at Pisgah Nat'l Forest.

The owners were good to work with and provided phone numbers for their caretakers in case we needed to contact them. A very nice house in a beautiful setting in a great area--many thanks to the owners!!

Great Fall break weekend! Highly recommend this place.

  • 5 of 5

First impression was great- even better than pictures. Extremely clean! We had a great time enjoying the views of lake and mountains. The kids REALLY enjoyed the boat- a huge reason we chose Shady Rest. We are planning to return for a summer vacation.
