Perfect place for peace & quiet!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very modern & spacious enough for our family of four plus dog. The walk to the lake isn’t bad at all. We drove back and forth for the most part because we took food, dry wood for fire pit, fishing supplies & our essentials as we planned to hang out at the lake most of the day. The lake is beautiful! There are two kayaks, a canoe, two stand up paddle boards and another fishing boat-several life jackets too. Even in late October with chilly weather, there was enough to do at the lake & main house. There are also three mountain bikes at the house for trail riding. The property is so quiet and modern..what a real treasure to find this place. We will definitely be back in the summer for another getaway!

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this beautiful home to help celebrate my Husband's birthday with his family. The house is spectacular and a perfect setting for a relaxing retreat. The views are incredible. We hope to come back in warmer weather to enjoy the beautiful lake and pool. Thank you for helping give my husband a wonderful and memorable birthday weekend with his family!

Beautiful and well equipped house. Incredible views. Just a short walk over to the lake, pool, hot tub and sauna. (Fun even in the winter!) Wonderful and responsive owner and caretakers. I recommend this property wholeheartedly.

quiet, relaxing, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time away. The hot tub was nice on the cold December days. We would love to take our girls and visit in the summer. Lewisburg nearby was very nice for meals out. Check in was smooth. The only downside was no wifi because we planned to stream netflix. Instead we did all the puzzles in the house and purchased a few DVDs at the Walmart in Lewisburg
