The Amazing Race-Cation!!!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house because a group of us were traveling from South Carolina to race in Gun Barrel City. From start to finish Mr. McClain was very open and welcoming to us. When I had questions, he was on the phone with answers! It was nice.

When we arrived at the home, it was in the back of a quiet neighborhood, off the beaten path. It has 2 spacious driveways and a well maicured lawn out front. In the back, there is a huge back yard leading right down to the water and a nice patio area. The patio has a bench around it for lots of seating, there is also a grill there for your use, a table and chair set is also on the patio, it has a big enough space to hold my travel hammock, and it is very relaxing. We watched the sun come up and go down over the water sitting on the patio.

The inside of the home was well appointed and fully furnished. The sleeping options were amazing. We traveled with 7 people, 4 adults, 3 children. We probably could have easily slept another 3 people in the house. The couches pulled out, ottomans slid into chaise loungers, and the beds were quite comfy. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything that I needed to prepare our meals.

The family also allowed us use of their pool floats and yard toys. These are somethings that we all really enjoyed, and were very grateful for. I really enjoyed spending my Friday, non-race day, floating around in the lake. All of our kids had a blast fishing, they caught many fish just off of the dock. (Bring your own poles and bait!)

I would just really like to say thank you to the McClain family for opening up your home to us! This has been by far the best Race-Cation that any of us have ever had! Hopefully we will be in town next year and can stay here again!

Great Location with the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as described! Great location close to everything, excellent response time during the reservation process, clean house with extremely comfortable couches and beds, OUTSTANDING SHOWERHEADS and plenty of room for both indoor and outdoor games. We fished off the private dock the whole weekend, cooked out on the grill provided, and enjoyed the outdoor seating well into the night (with the outdoor radio speakers at a reasonable level so as not to disturb the super nice neighbors). One of my favorite parts was the great customer service provided in the form of the Welcome Packet we were given which included detailed instructions on every possible question you would have while staying there. Outstanding touch to ensure we were able to enjoy ourselves without having to reach out for help. The entire stay was so easy and fun that we will back again and again.

We stayed at the lake house for a week. Our family was happy with how clean and well kept the home was. The kitchen had every appliance you could possibly need. The owners send you a welcome packet before you arrive that lists some local amenities that we found helpful. All the beds were comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet. We ended up renting a boat so the dock was perfect to keep it tied up over night. Would go there again.
