RELAXING & PEACEFUL vacation..Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is "WOW". We think "The Lodge" may become our yearly family vacation. First of all, owner was outstanding to work with. Great communication and very friendly. I am still amazed that I found this hidden treasure by doing a simple Google search.

The Lodge is exactly how it is described. Pictures don't do it justice. You really need to see it, to see how beautiful it really is. The decor is amazing and I fell in love with it at first sight.

We liked the fact that we were able to bring our 2 dogs. The entire yard is fenced in, which was awesome. We never had to worry where the dogs were.

We never needed to leave The Lodge. We enjoyed the pool daily and fished from the deck/dock daily, There was so much room inside and outside. My parents stopped by for a few days because they went gambling at Harrah's in North Carolina. (A simple 3 hour drive). My sister and nephews stopped by for a few days for a simple getaway. At no time was there too many people.

Since we didn't plan on leaving, there was a convenient Kroger located right down the hill, which we visited possibly daily. Even though we didn't plan on leaving, we did go to Caney Creek Marina and rent a Pontoon for 4 hours. The rate was incredible and it was about 4 or 5 miles from the The Lodge.

This vacation was Grade A....and I have since sent the link to many friends and family. Hopefully, they will book it.....as I can't wait to plan for next year.

Still basking in where we just spent the last week.....

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

12 of us convened from 4 households, including two little dogs. There was so much to do that we hardly left -- except to buy food at the nearby Krogers and worms for fishing. We had kids of all ages who thoroughly enjoyed the lovely pool (right outside our door) and fishing from the pier and kayaking daily. The house was great, too, loved the artwork! Would love to come here again!

Great Pet-Friendly Lake House

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful vacation home. The outdoor property is very beautiful and private. The pool was wonderful which we used daily. We ate outside or on the screened in porch nightly. If you have dogs, this place is heaven with the fenced in yard! There are a lot of stairs to the lake which can be tricky if you have a toddler or an elderly person. Gail was wonderful to work with and I highly recommend this property. We also rented a boat from the nearby marina which was really fun and only a few miles away!

Beautiful quiet escape

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 4 days at The Lodge. It was very accommodating for what we needed. Enjoyed one beautiful sunrise on the water but the other two were cloudy. Pool was very nice but a little too cool for this time of year. The property manager was easy to get hold of with a small problem we had but she got it handled quickly. The screened porch was great to sit on in the early am and afternoons. The glassed in area was great when it was too cool. Hated to leave but maybe we can come back in the fall. This house was only 30 minutes from Windrock atv park and we put over 60 miles on our buggies in 2 days. We had plenty of parking for the 2 vehicles pulling trailers with atv's. Working with Gail and Dan was great. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. Wayne & Sandra

Disapointed due to last minute cancelation

  • 1 of 5

I had this lake house reserved for weeks in advance to celebrate my son's college graduation with family and friends for the weekend. 24 hours before check-in the owner called and canceled due to bats being in the house. I'm thankful that we were informed the day before but it caused a lot of stress. I was not able to find and secure another rental until 2pm the following day (day of check-in). The rental for the new lake house was more than twice as much as this one! We also had to have 2 people sleep on the floor and 3 others did not come due to the new rental only sleeping 8! I've been renting from VRBO and never had a bad experience before. My deposit and rental fees were returned the following week but nothing was offered for our inconvenience.

through the gate and up the drive, you'll find such a nice and welcome surprise

Gail,

I can’t thank you enough for the accommodations that your place offered up for us. We were about 15 - 20 minutes from the Funeral home and Church and my sisters in law’s house. I can’t put in words the escape your lake house gave us in order to allow others to visit the family at her home. We cooked inside each night and slept very well. The water in the showers and tub was hot and nice and the flow of the house was great. I love the fish – as well as the lighting, as I’m a big kid when it comes to lights. We could not find the keys to the convertible, but we made it ok with out it. (LOL) The grounds were being taken care of while we were there and the place looks absolutely stunning with the trees budding out, birds singing and all the natural light. Gail, there’s only one problem, I’m spoiled now. I would have to say that the 1st thing that I would change would be NOTHING AT ALL.

We plan to visit again and have Roger & Teresa's kids & grand kids over for fishing or a swim.

If your travels every bring you to our area please call and perhaps we could meet and do a good lunch downtown Raleigh as this trip offered up more than just the nice relaxing house, it has given us the opportunity to call each other "Friends"
