So clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at lake James. The house was perfect for our family. We enjoyed the water most of all, but the kids were happy with all the toys/games in the house. My husband and I took the kayaks out around the big island, and rented paddle boards. I can't help but mention how clean this house was and extremely well stocked with kitchen appliances, far more accoutrements than my own kitchen!

Perfect for all of us!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us, plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Beds were comfortable. The kitchen worked out well and we could all sit around the table together. Terri is very helpful and honest. After we left, we realized that one of us had left something valuable behind. Terri took care of it. We enjoyed the deck with the fireplace every evening. It is screened in. Swam every day off the dock and enjoyed the kayaks. Lake James is quiet and quite beautiful! Plenty of room to spread out and sit and talk in this house. There is a nice swing down by the dock. You can't go wrong with this one.

Review Text:

My family of 11 rented this incredible house for the week. I can only say that each one of us, from age 7 through...well, let's just say senior, each one of us voted to return again next summer if at all possible. The house was lovely, well-furnished, and comfortable. The central a/c was trouble -free and ample for this large house. The kitchen contained high-end appliances and was large enough to function well with many people moving in and out. The bedrooms were spaced apart so that 3 generations had good privacy. The lake was only steps away and the kids spent most of their time there, on kayaks or tubes or just in the water. We rented a pontoon boat which worked out very well. Terri, the property manager, was, as many before me have noted, extremely responsive to even minor problems. This was a wonderful vacation spot for the entire family.

Excellent house, minus a few ementities

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed this house. It was spacious and was well equipped. My only complaints is I wish the owner would take out the pictures of the sliding board and the paddle boat, because these are no longer there. Also, if you want to play bags you need to bring your own set because the bags themselves had holes in them. I don't think you should advertise something you no longer have as we were expecting these.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

I'm an event planner and brought a group of 25 professionals for a retreat weekend. I can only say that everything related to renting this house exceeded my expectations. The house is amazing. If anything, it exceeds the pictures. The property manager, Terri, could not have been more helpful. She assisted with boat rentals, kayaks, caterers maid service, and was consistently responsive and helpful. I do a lot of event planning, and give this spot an easy five stars.

Picturesque Setting

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is perfectly designed to accommodate large families. We thoroughly enjoyed the lakefront setting, the ability to rent a boat, the porches, the grill, and the wood-burning fireplaces. The property manager, Terri Silver, was very responsive and provided great service.
