Lake Life at its best for a few couples or large groups.

About Rick & Patty Maguire
My wife & I have always wanted to reside on lakefront property. My dream was to build a home where friends & family could visit and enjoy the lake life. Greers Ferry Lake & the surrounding area provided the outdoor life & water sports which we cherish. After we moved in August of 2010 we continued to work full time and finally lake life called us to retire in 2014. We have never looked back and still cherish and embrace the lake life all four seasons of the year.
Rick & Patty Maguire purchased this House in 2010
Why Rick & Patty Maguire chose Quitman
My wife & I have always enjoyed water sports. Greers Ferry Lake provided a location within a day's drive for all our friends & family to enjoy. After looking for homes that suited our needs we decided to build our own place. We knew friends who resided on this side of the lake and narrowed our search for a home site. Diamond Bluff Estates offered the location where had privacy but still within an hour from Conway. We picked this property because it is lakefront & you can to walk to the water. But at the same time the site offered expansion views of the lake and surrounding countryside above the tree line. Also, the neighborhood is quiet and the full time & part time residents & the other neighbors who live "above" us on the mountain are very friendly & helpful.
What makes this House unique
This home offers vistas of over 20 miles of the lake and countryside. At the same, time you can walk to the lake. The beach in front of the home provides a place to keep your boat nearby. We keep our boats on the beach from April through October. If you have friends that bring their own boats the neighborhood boat ramp is less than 2 miles away. And if someone is unable to walk to the lake they can still enjoy lake life and board your boat at the ramp. I designed the home primarily for entertaining friends & family. You may get that sense by the photographs but when you personally come inside do you get the feeling of openness of the main area.

Loved the house and the easy ness of renting it
Thank you for taking time to write your review. We are happy you enjoyed your time at home.
Very Well Appointed
We've stayed in a lot of rental homes over the years at all sorts of price points. I always bring my favorite knife, pan, and spices because most kitchens have the bare minimum. The cabinets in this kitchen are labeled and are fully stocked with pans, spices, flour, and basically everything a person would normally have in his own kitchen.
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are happy you enjoyed the kitchen. We designed & stocked it for the cook in the family.

Amazing family get away with all the amenities and steps to a private lakefront "beach"
I can't say enough positive things about this property and our stay. Let's start with the view. THE VIEW! Amazing lake views from inside and outside the home. Every morning, I had my coffee and just sat and looked out the living room windows at the wide expanse of the lake just steps below us.
Wifi worked perfectly allowing us to do a little "work" while we were relaxing. Access to Netflix and a wide array of channels made evening relaxation great as well.
The kitchen...THE KITCHEN! I could live in this kitchen. If you like to cook or just like to eat, then this is the perfect stay for you. We brought our groceries for the week, and we enjoyed cooking on the massive gas range. We even used the built in griddle and the gas grill. Everything you need to whip up a meal, large or small, is provided (and everything is labeled to make it easy to find...an added bonus).
The porch...THE PORCH! Upstairs or down, each porch provided an unobstructed view of the lake. The hot tub and outdoor fireplace were an added bonus that we used daily as well.
The lake...THE LAKE! Just wow! Greer's Ferry Lake is beautiful. We had a mix of weather ranging from cool and windy to sunny and calm. When it was warm enough, we ventured down to the "beach" and used the kayaks and paddle board for some lake fun and exercise. We were pretty much before the "lake season," so we only saw a few boats out on the lake, and most of those were fishing. The weekend did bring out a few ski boats and jet skis, but nothing crowded at all. Be aware that to access the "beach" you have to be able to descend and ascend numerous (and steep) rock stairs. There is a boat ramp about 1.5 miles from the property, and it is easily accessible for anyone who might not be able to navigate the steps.
Being able to bring our family dog was an added bonus as well. The neighborhood is very secluded and quiet. There are houses along the way, however, this home is near the "dead end" of the street. We went for several walks and runs, but be warned...there are some serious hills. One of which is getting out of the drive! For those who have the strength and willingness, the views are well worth the challenging hills.
The hosts were great. Extremely responsive! We didn't have need to communicate very often while we were there (because everything was pretty perfect), but when we did, we had an immediate response.
I HIGHLY recommend this property if you are looking for a Great Lake escape!
Wow that is the best review we have ever had written about our home. We are happy that your group thoroughly enjoyed the house. Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. Please come again!!

A great place for family reunion in a peaceful and quiet environment. We all enjoyed the kayaking and fishing by the lake. Very well maintained property.

This was a great location for a getaway with the family. We planned the trip last minute, but had no problem at all securing the booking. The owners were quick to respond, and very easy to work with. The house itself was amazing. Plenty of room and plenty of entertainment for everyone. My personal favorite spot was the lake shore. The rock path goes down to this, with a cleared area of beach. There are kayaks that we would take out each morning to enjoy the water and spent many hours fishing the area. Such a quiet and beautiful area. I'm hoping we get to visit again!
