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!

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.

Beautiful views!

We loved our stay at Shady Rest! The view was gorgeous and we had such fun on the boat. The fire pit was a popular place in the evening, and the house was great for our large family. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Fun house on a beautiful lake!

  • 4 of 5

My family (3 kids 7-11 and our dog) just had a 1 week fall stay at the lake and the place was great. Even this late in the season we had some luck fishing, enough to keep the kids occupied and maybe even hooked. The boat was a real treasure, both for fishing as well as cruising the lake. If you look at rental fees for similar boats at the lake you'll see that including in the house fee makes for a real bargain. If you are considering a stay keep in mind that it is geared for peace and quiet. It is very close to a few really nice little hikes in whitewater and gorges and also has a market and hardware store nearby but other than that you are in for a haul to find supplies. You'll have plenty to do, so just make sure to stock up. Lastly, the renters were very easy to work with. We had a number of questions (including more expansive directions would be worthwhile) but they always answered them quickly. Only note - renters should consider a new dishwasher as the unit was extremely loud.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your review very much. Quite honestly we had never been notified by any of our guests that the directions needed to be more clear or that the dish washer was loud. We will take measures to make corrections before next year and we hope that you will visit us again in the near future.

Great spot on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely beautiful spot on the lake! The lake level was too low for boats (they reduced it to make repairs to the dam and it did not refill in time for summer boating), so we rented paddle boards and kayaks from the local marina. The lake was so peaceful and still. We were able to go paddling often without worrying about motor boats. The sunrises and sunsets over the lake were spectacular! Shady Rest is a very nice home. It is clean and has everything you need. The owners and manager, Michael, were easy to work with. Three of the bedrooms have lake views. The deck is large with a large table where we ate most of our meals. Our family of 6 adults had plenty of room. The kitchen is somewhat small, but there is plenty of storage space for a week's worth of groceries. This is our third Home Away rental in three years and we have found our "spot." Looking forward to many more summers of family time at Shady Rest!
