Great property and hosts
Butch and Janie have a great piece of property here. Overlooks the lake for a great sunrise view. Fire pit is a very spacious area with supplied fire wood. Dock works well, we put our boat in at Gilmore Boat Docks which is about a 5 min drive and a 1 min boat ride to the cabin. Note that you'll need to put your boat in and leave your trailer at Gilmore before you come down to the cabin as the road to the cabin will not accommodate a trailer. Ice and gas are very reasonably priced here. They also have a fairly well stocked beer selection.
They have pretty much everything you'll need with a well stocked kitchen. Also on the deck are a grill and a griddle. We used the griddle for every meal, very convenient.
The outdoor shower is very convenient and pretty cool! It has an instant hot water heater hooked up to it so you can shower to your hearts content. We had a small issue with the water heater which Butch rectified over the phone very quickly.
All of the living space is outside, we had a very severe storm come through including hail and we were fine under the covered deck. Bugs weren't too big of an issue as the deck has 4 ceiling fans and 2 air movers on each side of the deck. We met a couple of the neighbors who were very friendly. The lake had almost no traffic so it was really fun and stress free to be out wakesurfing. It seems to be almost exclusively a fishing lake, with bass boats around the edges of coves and islands. The attendant at Gilmore did mention that there are a lot of unmarked hazards in the lake so to be sure to pay special attention when the lake isn't full pool. However the water levels were fine for us in June.
I fell in love with this place. We had 4 couples in our group. We appreciated the fact that the home didn’t have internet or TV. It gave us an opportunity to enjoy our friends, truly disconnect & only used our cellular phones to take pictures & stream music. We had a beautiful weekend weather wise. If we were not boating we stayed under the covered deck during the day & by the fire at night. We had two boats so the private, nice size dock set this property apart from the rest. We also loved the close proximity to Gilmore Dock to get onto the water. Super great service there as well! The outdoor grill was awesome for breakfast & we even put some thick cut steaks on it one night. I promise if you like being outdoors, want to truly connect with family or friends this is the place for you!
Kids never even realized there were no TVs or internet!
Beautiful in every way!
Loved the property! Beautiful view, easy access to nearby marinas. We have 4 family’s staying and it was the perfect amount of space! We enjoyed many nights by the fire pit or sitting and watching the sunrise over the lake! The lake itself was very calm and not overcrowded! We did two half day boat rentals from Huffs Greman Creek Marina which is only a 5-10min drive! Our family defiantly will be back!
The best of outdoor living!!
Excellent weekend getaway
The cabin was spotless and we enjoyed being there. The cabin is totally geared to lake living and boating. We came late in the season and without a boat, however it was so very relaxing to disconnect and enjoy just being still. We would like to rent this cabin again.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
