About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This secluded, spacious house is perfect for your fishing retreat or family reunion. Located on the edge of Kerr Reservoir and forests, surrounded with airy covered porches, and equipped with the perfect cleaning station to work your catch, this is the ideal location for your get-together and uninterrupted fishing extravaganza.

Walk down to 2 large private floating docks that can accommodate several boats (and sunbathers!). Wildlife and gentle breezes accompany your visit, as you shed the hurry and tension of life in town. Toss a horseshoe game in the evening and watch for the shy, wild turkeys and deer take their stroll across the bottom field.

This is our family's country house, and some of our belongings are there, too. You will feel right at home, settling in with your friends, and will be sad to leave this beautiful estate, there are no other houses to distract from velvety black skies at night or the quiet of an early morning.

Traditional 2-story home, set on high foundation. All stairs (interior and exterior) have normal handrails; childproof gates/barriers are NOT provided by owner.

Large home; lots of land; on a lake.

  • 4 of 5

Completely remodeled older country home on John Kerr Reservoir. Lots of room for kids of all ages to run and play. Lake a short walk - complete with dock for your boat. 5bdrm 2 baths and an outdoor shower! Large well-appointed kitchen. Although this property does not have wifi or online pay do not let it stop you from considering for your next get away!

Owner's Response: Maryann, thank you for your review and feedback. The house is actually only 20 years old and has been very gently used. It was built in 1997 and replaced a 1920s vintage home that burned in the mid 1990s. As for wifi, it is doubtful that we will be adding that any time soon. We are looking at the possibility of adding credit card payments, but not in the immediate future. Again, thank you for being wonderful guests. Cheryl

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend and enjoyed every single second. It is perfectly secluded but close enough to town to get ice/groceries, etc. We rented a pontoon from a nearby marina and spent the day tooling around on the lake which was perfect and not anywhere near crowded. We will definitely be renting this property again! It was well stocked, sheets provided, spotless upon arrival. We had 8 adults and 4 children and there was room for us all to spread out. I can't stress enough how much we enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

Secluded, well-kept, great fishing

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, secluded property. Clean home with all the comforts needed. Floating dock worked great for our boats and although the water was high, we still caught a lot of fish. Hope to make it back sooner than later!

Owner's Response: 5-Star Guests: We were very fortunate and to have this family as our guests. They left the house and grounds tidy and clean--probably the best ever--and we hope they will stay with us again.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 was easily accommodated at Violet's Grove. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, watching the deer and groundhogs from the porch swing, and the ease of having the boat docks. The owners were easy to work with, the house was comfy and clean, and the kitchen well stocked. We will definitely be back to stay again at Violet's Grove.
