We stayed in house #32. It is a great home but it does have 3 levels and you must go up a whole flight of stairs to get to the first level. This level has 2 bedrooms and kitchen and living area. Then another level up has two more bedrooms and another living room area. Everything was great except the... More

Our families met here from 3 states. We rented out the Southern Comfort Home and it exceeded our expectations! The home was beautifully decorated and the kitchen had everything we needed. The views and breezes were phenomenal. They have a wonderful street party on Friday night that the children loved and live music on Saturday at Godfather's pizza (which by... More

Average, indeed. Pipes under kitchen sink leak, which we discovered while washing dishes. (a pot was already in place, so evidently management is aware of problem.). Outdoor grill is in pitiful shape. Visible cobwebs ( I wasn't LOOKING for things to complain about, they were easily seen.) Only one roll of paper towels, which was used up quickly when sopping...

As a manager we make suggestions to the home owner about how to make there home better and how important it is to the resort as a hole. This review of the home was correct however, I will say things like the paper towels are very common in home rentals to receive 1 roll and then it is up to... More

Family had a blast at this resort. What's not to like?? Could swim in the river, kayak, paddleboat, catch some rays, fish (caught a 3 pound bass from the pier!! Yea (: ), and rent jet skies and pontoon boats. Did I mention they have basketball/tennis courts and volleyball courts set up. We stayed in # 28 squirrels nest and... More

We stayed at the resort last week for my son's birthday. I was expecting a great weekend. We rented a house near the pool (#11). These homes are NOT CHEAP and I had high expectations for the rental. We had a great 1st day at the resort for the most part. We swam in the lake and the slide was... More

Reunited with old college friends for a long weekend of food, drink and playing on the water. Chesnut Bay is very suitable to family though my childless friends and I found it perfectly suited our needs of a spacious, pet-friendly, economical weekend retreat as well.

My husband and I took his mother and father here for a Father's Day gift. We stayed in the Lighthouse and had a great time! The house is precious but there are steps to both bedrooms so make sure your guests are comfortable going up and down stairs. There is a great patio area right on the water. My mother-in-law...

We took a family vacation that included ages 2 years to 80 years and everyone loved it! The lake is exquisite and our house (#42) was beautiful. We also used the paddle boats, kayaks, watersides, volleyball net and pools....all so much fun! And, you'll NEVER find a more service oriented staff. They were uniformly kind and accommodating.
