Fabulous home and hospitality!
Our family had a great time at this lovely property. The home offered lots of space (bedrooms, baths, common areas and decks) and plenty of on-site activities and games. We especially enjoyed gathering around the dining table in the mornings to visit, and coming together in the evenings in the large den to play our favorite game. The kitchen is amazing, fully stocked with anything you'd need to prepare meals. And if you need anything else? Just ask Jo Ann! She'll make sure you've got anything you need for your visit. Wonderful hostess! I highly recommend this as the perfect place for a family retreat.
This home is amazing. The hostess/owner is wonderful to work with and very accommodating. Every request was met immediately and some even answered before request was made. We were a group of 24 women. If you've ever traveled with women, you know, there's always at least one that cannot be pleased UNTIL now! Each and every lady, told me how great the home was, how comfortable it was and how beautiful the scenery was. There were areas enough for each of us to have our quiet time and rooms large enough for us all to be together for worship and Bible study. The price is very reasonable and the pictures are true of the home. Thank you for a blessed weekend. We have many that have ask about coming back and others that are thinking of bringing their families. This home comes Highly recommended!!
The property is AMAZING and the property owner was very accommodating. My family will be returning!
We were celebrating my parents' 50th anniversary and rented the complete property to accommodate 24 people. Each of the six bedrooms downstairs had their own complete restrooms. The two rooms upstairs had extra bedrooms attached as well as full bathrooms providing complete privacy for two of our larger families. We only had to go a mile to do some cliff jumping or fishing, but we also had the option to walk just down the hill to take a dip. They had many choices for outdoor games such as horse shoes, croquette, batmitton, volleyball, and ping pong. Inside there was a large cabinet full of board and card games to choose from. We were able to connect our Apple TV to airplay a power point from my Mac which was great for a 50th anniversary (this place would be great for an office get away or training as well!!). The kitchen had a ton of space for prep and set up. We decided this would be the perfect place for a family reunion, and hope to return someday!!
The house is roomy and luxurious, puppies were welcome. We had a large group, and were very comfortable there. The kids had fun at the lake!
We enjoyed this home so much. It was roomy, luxurious and close to the lake. The owners are lovely people also.
Lakehaven is a true haven!
The house is huge and provides plenty of privacy. It is perfect for family reunions or corporate retreats where communal gathering yet privacy are required. The 4 downstairs bedrooms each have a private bathroom. Deck suite and sun suite are upstairs, private and huge. The house is clean; kitchen is massive and well-stocked. The coffee bar was equipped with high-capacity coffee maker, coffee, creamers and sweeteners. The house has a total of 6 full bathrooms and 2 half-baths. Each has more than enough towels and toiletries. Several decks are available to watch the sunrise/sunset. The property is safe for young children to explore outside and large enough inside for great games of hide-and-seek. Customer service was unbelievable; owner lives on property and provided a tour when guests arrived and answered all questions. Owner was available before our visit to answer questions about area dining. Lake Whitney is 5 minutes away for fishing and swimming. Several restaurants are less than 10 miles away. We enjoyed supper at the Bosque Resort in near-by Clifton. I would recommend this property to friends or relatives. We plan to return next summer and are thinking about celebrating Christmas there.
