Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Fawn Forest was located on a quiet lake; it was perfect for our young grandsons to practice their swimming. The house was very clean and well-stocked with everything you need. We enjoyed the paddle boat and kayaks, and my grandsons loved the video arcade game.

Reviewer Comments:

We recently took a family vacation and stayed at Fawn Forest. Our three grandsons, ages 4,6, and 7, loved swimming on the lake, and it was great that the lake was so quiet without power boats zooming around. We loved paddle boating and kayaking, and enjoyed eating on the deck and watching nature.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a good experience with the lake house. We used the dock once for boating and swimming and a couple of times for fishing. The daily rains cut down on the time in the water. Rumbling Bald Resort was a great asset. We used almost all of the facilities and entertainments. Again, rain cut down on the amount of time available. The house was in very good condition with minor exceptions. There were lights out in the kitchen and on the decks. The grill had no grease in the grease trap but the bottom of the grill turned out to be filled with grease which flamed up. We got it out just before using the fire extinguisher. Overall, we were very happy with the rental. Peppin the cat turned out to be great visitor for the kids!
