About Cindy

My husband & I enjoyed decorating our home a little different from the norm. We call it the Jungle at the Lake due to the decorations in the livingroom. Hope our guests enjoy it.

Why Cindy chose Lake Ariel

If you want a place where the breeze almost always blows gently off the lake, this is for you. Southern exposure on a cove.

Beautiful, clean mountain home with absolutely everything you will need!

  • 5 of 5

This home is well taken care of and the owners have put a lot of effort into making sure you have EVERYTHING you might need!! The property is level and situated truly lakefront with beautiful views of water and wildlife! We saw a pair of bald eagles, hawk, a weasel, hummingbirds galore, deer, etc. A lot of outdoor seating is provided, no need to bring chairs! We easily docked our 19 ft. deck boat right at the property's dock (upon advice from another reviewer we launched at Ledgedale Recreation Center...easy, close and super nice people). We boated, tubed, swam and fished all over the lake. However, the best fishing was right off the dock at the house!! We caught a ton of bass, bluegill, crappy and catfish. One daughter caught a 25 inch pickeral and my husband caught a 28 in catfish, again right from the dock! Plenty of grills (4) to cook on the deck or by the picnic table. The fire pit for smores was another big hit as well as the hammock. These owners care about their guests and it shows. Come and will love it!

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

While the weather was less than perfect, we absolutely loved our stay. The property had everything we needed and more. The house is perfect for traveling with teenagers. The lower level was like their own little space. Cindy was wonderful as a host. We genuinely could not have asked for anything more (other than better weather)!

Charming lakefront house in a quiet community

  • 5 of 5

Unique house in a great location situated right on the lakeshore. The place will comfortably accommodate two small families. All amenities, appliances and toys one can think off were included. Wide dock is perfect for sunbathing or fishing. The owners are very friendly and responsive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to rent this house again.

A unique house in a perfect location with everything you need for a relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

The lake was beautiful. The house had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. I especially liked the hammock and swings out back. It's a unique house in a perfect location. The homeowners were a pleasure to communicate with.

Charming spot

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to call home on the water. Truly a great spot to get away from it all for a while. Everything you need is right here, and one of our favorite things to do was to enjoy eating on the upper deck with a bird's eye view of the lake.
