Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a surprise! For the past 15 years our family has vacationed at the beach. Wanting to changes things up this year we wanted to try the lake. This house was much bigger than expected. It had everything we needed. The view of the lake from the house was stunning. The pool was an extra plus! The dock was perfect for boating activities,taking off and dropping off right at the dock, watching the sunset, fishing, watching other boats, and swimming. This vacation was one of the best our family has had. It was peaceful and truly relaxing, no lugging tents, chairs, coolers to the beach, everything was right there! We are already planning our vacation for next year. Home owner was also super easy to talk to and stayed in touch. The neighbors were so friendly and welcoming . I highly recommend this place to vacation.

I have stayed here 3 or 4 vacations loved them all

  • 5 of 5

I will be booking this year when I see what is free time. I don't know what the complaint of another could have been. I have never had any problem with anything in the past 5 or so care. This vacation is for a relaxing get away from phones and just swim, fish off the dock, rent boats to waterski and eat at the nice restaurants the owners Chris recommended. One time we has a small problem but as soon as we called Chris it was fixed. Knowing the owner as I do , it seems someone might be complaining so they would not have to pay the full vacation price. My daughter in law loved the shower downstairs. I loved the pool lights at night as we swam. We are not smokers or drinkers so this was ideal compared to beaches with teens out of control. If you are a wine drinker, it's a relaxing place to unwind and watch the view. As soon as my hubby gets home we will book a week so. Ignore the complaint. I promise you I really enjoyed that giant swimming pool and relaxing. The owner have always been good people. Which is hard to find.

I thank Vonda and her husband for letting my family and I stay the weekend in their beautiful home on Lake Blackshear. We had such a good time. The lake view from their property was beautiful and we will most definitely be returning

This property should not be up for rent. I have stayed a lot of places over the years on different lakes, this was by far the worst. To start with the house was not clean. Trash in some of the trash cans around the house. Bugs on the floor, dead but there. Toilets not working properly. Shower in downstairs bathroom old and out dated with the fixtures not working properly. Toilets running continuously. TV’s all had to be reprogramed to watch. The TV in the downstairs bedroom was not working at all. The banister in the dining area upstairs was very unsafe, a child could have fallen if they pushed against it. Many lights were out throughout the house. Both the decks off the two bedrooms upstairs were bad need of repair. The pool deck was in partial repair during our stay. We could even access the pool area from the house. The entire deck around the pool is in bad need of repair and even unsafe to be on. The pool itself was dirty and had not been cleaned in a while. The Hot Tub was broken and nasty looking. No water in it at all and we were told it has not worked in several years even though IT IS ADVERTISED AS WORKING. The building under the pool is almost rotted down and stairs from yard to pool area are not real safe. The dock is in need of attention also. When confronted about these things we got two different answers from the owners. Not helpful at all. The one owner advised he would give us a 25% discount because of these matters but that is not the point. This is very poor advertising. Can’t believe this site does not watch over these ads any better than this.

Owner's Response: We have rented our property now for over 6 years and have numerous families that return each year for a reason. The house was built in the 1970's and we recently did some very nice updates to the house, including all new paint inside and updated light fixtures as well as a brand new pool deck. We are always quick to address any concerns that our renters might encounter. We want your rental experience at our lake house to be enjoyable and for you to leave 100% satisfied. We quickly responded to the issues stated above and did everything we could to resolve them.

Great time at Lake Blackshear

  • 5 of 5

My stay was so enjoyable. Great house with everything we needed. Loved the big fireplace in the Livingroom, so cozy. I loved the view from the top floor overlooking the swimming pool and what a great view of the lake. Watching the sun set every evening was so amazing. Would recommend highly.
