Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a surprise! For the past 15 years our family has vacationed at the beach. Wanting to changes things up this year we wanted to try the lake. This house was much bigger than expected. It had everything we needed. The view of the lake from the house was stunning. The pool was an extra plus! The dock was perfect for boating activities,taking off and dropping off right at the dock, watching the sunset, fishing, watching other boats, and swimming. This vacation was one of the best our family has had. It was peaceful and truly relaxing, no lugging tents, chairs, coolers to the beach, everything was right there! We are already planning our vacation for next year. Home owner was also super easy to talk to and stayed in touch. The neighbors were so friendly and welcoming . I highly recommend this place to vacation.

Unbelievable

  • 1 of 5

This property should not be up for rent. I have stayed a lot of places over the years on different lakes, this was by far the worst. To start with the house was not clean. Trash in some of the trash cans around the house. Bugs on the floor, dead but there. Toilets not working properly. Shower in downstairs bathroom old and out dated with the fixtures not working properly. Toilets running continuously. TV’s all had to be reprogramed to watch. The TV in the downstairs bedroom was not working at all. The banister in the dining area upstairs was very unsafe, a child could have fallen if they pushed against it. Many lights were out throughout the house. Both the decks off the two bedrooms upstairs were bad need of repair. The pool deck was in partial repair during our stay. We could even access the pool area from the house. The entire deck around the pool is in bad need of repair and even unsafe to be on. The pool itself was dirty and had not been cleaned in a while. The Hot Tub was broken and nasty looking. No water in it at all and we were told it has not worked in several years even though IT IS ADVERTISED AS WORKING. The building under the pool is almost rotted down and stairs from yard to pool area are not real safe. The dock is in need of attention also. When confronted about these things we got two different answers from the owners. Not helpful at all. The one owner advised he would give us a 25% discount because of these matters but that is not the point. This is very poor advertising. Can’t believe this site does not watch over these ads any better than this.

Owner's Response: We have rented our property now for over 6 years and have numerous families that return each year for a reason. The house was built in the 1970's and we recently did some very nice updates to the house, including all new paint inside and updated light fixtures as well as a brand new pool deck. We are always quick to address any concerns that our renters might encounter. We want your rental experience at our lake house to be enjoyable and for you to leave 100% satisfied. We quickly responded to the issues stated above and did everything we could to resolve them.

Great time at Lake Blackshear

  • 5 of 5

My stay was so enjoyable. Great house with everything we needed. Loved the big fireplace in the Livingroom, so cozy. I loved the view from the top floor overlooking the swimming pool and what a great view of the lake. Watching the sun set every evening was so amazing. Would recommend highly.

We stayed this last summer and had a blast!!! Enjoyed ourselves immensely!! My son and I played golf at the state park a few miles away. Great sunsets sitting on the dock each evening and sitting on the screened porch out back in the swing. House is very clean and the pool is awesome!! Would recommend this rental and will definitely book again this summer.

moment

  • 5 of 5

Although ive never stayed in this house I have a story to tell. Ive rented several houses on lake black shear before. So last November (2013) we stayed a few houses down and had a great time thanksgiving week. Wife and i been flirting around with staying here for a few years now, while on hunting trip. looks like we still wont make it this 2014thanksgiving. But anyway, when we were leaving to head back to florida, I called the owner, think his name might be Chris, so I let him know we were in the driveway ( another family had just finished there weekly stay). Chris was at a business lunch meeting if I can recall, so he was nice enough to give me the key code to go in and tour the house. Wow I was dang on blown away!! As advertised for CERTAIN! !!! We cannot wait to stay in this wonderful house. By far this house is 2nd to no other house ive rented on lake black shear. Cant see how anybody would have the nerve to post a bad comment. Owner did not even have to let me tour the house right after guest just left. Im so glad he did, i will be booking this house in the future from now on.

We come back year after year...

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth year staying at Lake Blackshear in the lovely home. The home is clean and ready for us upon arrival and the owners are very accommodating with our arrival and departure times.

We come to Lake Blackshear to ride bikes for our spring break. This is a great home for those who are active. There is a large yard, access to the lake and a pool for all to enjoy. It is close to the state park where there are activities for older teens and adults. We go in March so the pool is cold (we choose not to have it heated, although this is an option) but it is clean and well kept. We generally see the "pool guy" while we are there.

We would recommend this home to anyone considering staying at Lake Blackshear. The owner has been great to work with and it's a lot of house for the money.
