Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was great & everyone enjoyed it. It was perfect for the birthday get together & my husband was surprised. The setting was beautiful and the open rooms were great for a family gathering. We will definitely consider coming back again.

Loving Lake Life with family

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an incredible five nights at this amazing and gorgeous Home! We were in North Carolina for a family wedding and we traveled from Texas, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey! We had three little ones, a few 30ish and of course the 60ishes'! The house was more than we could have imagined! This is our third VRBO and will continue every family vacation this way!

There was a walk down from the deck to the lake where most of our spare time was spent. There were rafts, paddle boards and kayaks for your lake pleasure. Chairs, and lounge chairs, out side seating and a grill for cooking out.

The security staff and owners were amazing and accommodating when we requested permission for family local visitors!

The home itself has beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, linens provided, and most kitchen utensils! Since we do most of our cooking at home because of the littles Mimi will bring her favorite kitchen utensils for our next visit! Food Lion is very close to the property and six miles away is a Harris Teeter brand new beautiful store!

We cannot say enough wonderful things about this property! We were all very sad to say good-bye!

Thank you again Cynthia and Hubby!

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

If you are golfing Pinehurst, this is the place to stay. We were 4 men on a golf trip. This place is gorgeous. The large deck offers fantastic views of the lake. Kayaks available on property. The beautifully manicured lawn offered an ideal place for late night chipping contests. Grocery store and many restaurants nearby. The book on the kitchen counter is full of information for the area. The owner was easily accessible throughout the entire stay and also readily available prior to the stay. 15 minutes from Pinehurst. Gated community. Rhett's (in the information book) had the best shrimp and grits I've ever had. Immaculate and comfortable. BBQ grill on back deck. We chose not to cook but anything you would need to do this for any meal is available. We will highly recommend to friends and family. We will return. Thank you.

This house is perfect! The house is far more beautiful than the pictures even show. I planned a surprise golf trip for my husband and everything was perfect. The views from almost every room were breathtaking. The deck and yard were perfect for our two young children to run around outdoors. The house was so clean and bright it felt like home . I did not want the week to end. The owner made this planned surprise so perfect and she was so incredibly helpful. My husband golfed all week and was able to play at three different courses, including Pinehurst which was a lifelong dream. I would recommend this property to everyone! We will definitely be back!

It was a perfect location to celebrate my 70th. birthday!!! Our family voted this house and location to be the best vacation in years.
