House, 2 Bdrms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)
We love life on the water so much that when we travel, we only stay at places by the water if at all possible. It's food for the soul!
Owner purchased this House in 2011
Why Owner chose Briar
We purchased the home next door in 2002 and couldn't resist the opportunity to buy this property. We originally bought our first property with the thought of moving out full time after retirement. After three years of spending more time here than in town, we retired early and moved out to the lake. It's like living in vacation mode year round.
What makes this House unique
Whether it's waking to the sweet sounds of the birds calling, the beauty of the sunrise, or the solitude of the woods, there is always something to appreciate about life on the lake.

Very good experience and beautiful property!
The cabin took us back to when we were kids and went to the Lake.
The cabin check-in, communication were excellent. The home is spacious and very clean. The dock is very nice and the lake was surprisingly quiet. It had most everything you need.
Weekend get away !!!
My wife and I spent 2 days there. We loved it. The cabin is super nice and facing the lake. Enjoyed it very much. We will be going back .
Great place to stay for a getaway
The place was very peaceful and Katy and Buddy were very helpful in accommodating us. My only complaint was the oven and stove top--very old and slow.
Thanks so much for letting us know about the stove. We'ved had the property for 8 yrs & without your review, we would have not known about the stove. We had a technician out yesterday & he replaced the elements in the oven, but he showed me that the burners on the range top got red within a short time when he had put them on high.... so I bought new knobs as the paint was worn off that showed where "high" was. Again...thanks so much &.....as you have said in our other correspondence, that you "hope to stay again sometime"....we look forward to your next visit !
Great Family Vacation!
Normally you will find my family of 5 on the beach in Alabama in the summer but with my recent surgery we had to keep it close to home. Looking around I ran across Katy & Buddys little slice of heaven on Eagle Mountain Lake. I was worried the kids would be disappointed not being at the beach but I have to say if we didnt have a better time it was near close! This little slice of heave was about 45 minutes from home & felt far away! Waking up, drinking coffee on the porch swing over looking the water while my daughter was on the huge tree swing was pretty close to perfect! All accommodations were great ( towels, soaps, pots and pans etc) We spent most of our time outside on the private dock swimming and fishing the days away. Just a heads up, there is a buffalo fish down at the end of the dock we named "the myth" we hooked him FOUR times but none of us could get him caught! He is atleast 30lbs and about a foot long if not longer but there are PLENTY of catfish to catch, we caught about 13! They love stinky bait and weenies. If I had to tell you the only "off" thing that I would want someone to know about the location, you need to know that the owners do live on property and by on property I mean you are in their backyard. ( its a huge backyard but they are close) So if you are looking for privacy this may not be the place for you, but for us we didn't mind it a bit and it worked out perfect. We will for sure be back! We are thinking another trip in the fall sometime! Thanks Buddy & Katy for your hospitality and allowing us to stay in your beautiful home away from home! God Bless The Mayes Family
