The place was nice, but I think the air conditioning was on a timer. At the same time each date, no air was coming out the vents.

Room for all on beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

With 12 adults and 7 children we were a big crew. Kitchen was great for cooking. Outdoor fireplace and hot tub were big hits. Only complaint is that we are a noisy crew. All 7 of those kids are under 10. With concrete flooring there was nothing to absorb the noise. That said, it would not prevent us from returning.

Shady operator

  • 1 of 5

Stayed in Celina with a bunch of dads and their middle school sons. Property for the most part is what they describe other than there is an owners’ suite that isn’t available to travelers and that is pictured in the listing (but there are 9 BRs available as listed). That wasn’t a big deal to us.

Not sure if the shady dealings are the modus operandi of the property manager, the owner, or both, but I’d advise anyone renting this place to not counting on getting the full security deposit back. About a week after the stay the property manager sent some pictures – one badly damaged chair and a bunch of frivolous pictures of damage to other areas of the house. The chair was so badly damaged that I don’t think a person could sit on it without breaking it. I asked my entire group – kids and dads – if anyone saw that broken chair during that stay and none of us did. I honestly believe they pull that chair out from the locked owners room just so they can gig the travelers.

So of the other pictures of “damage”, which they didn’t charge us for, were pictures like the ashes in the outdoor fireplace (full disclosure we did use the fireplace) and one of the hot tub pillows floating in the hot tub (these are designed to detach for cleaning/replacing and are easily reattached). The frivolity of the pictures lead me to believe they were just dreaming up things to take our security deposit. Of the security deposit, they kept 53% and returned 47%.

I should have known the fix was in from the beginning as I found it on VRBO but the property manager encouraged me to book it directly through them instead of VRBO, which I thought was odd and unethical. I booked it through VRBO anyway since they have a “guarantee” which I plan on utilizing to try to get back the full security deposit back.

Owner's Response: This house is actually a 10 bedroom house, we only advertise as a 9 because the owners do keep one of the upstairs locked for their private use. We inventory the house at each turn and if there is damage done there are photos taken and guests are charged accordingly.

Great Large Group Get-away

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 26 spanning all ages thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lodge in Celina. The house is huge with plenty of room for everyone. With nine bedrooms and 9+ baths, this is easily the largest place we stayed in all the years of our get-togethers., but at a cost comparable to smaller places. The house is somewhat isolated and there's not all that much to do right there on the grounds, but we did a little online research and discovered the Pleasant Grove nature area at Dalehollow lake. This "local favorite" swimming area is only 20 minutes away on Dale Hollow Lake. With a rocky shore, roped swim area and shaded sitting areas it's Was perfect on those hot afternoons. The house itself has everything you need. The bedrooms are basic but very comfortable, the great room is a terrific place to hang out and was taken over by the kiddos in our group for games, the kitchen has every upscale appliance you can imagine along with plenty of cookware, and the two outside gathering areas -- a covered porch in back and a huge pavilion in front -- were great for evening gatherings and music. Everyone love the place and we will very likely to come back in the future. We also received our security deposit refund within a week without requesting it. 👌
