The best host you could ask for. I brought down a group of college alumni for Memorial Day weekend. The location is perfect. And the house is gorgeous. You've got full access to all of its amenities, fire pit, dock, bar. Highly, highly recommend to anyone with a decent sized group looking for a place right on the water.
Great for family retreats! Pool table, home theatre, and workout equipment! Outdoor kitchen and a boat dock! Ray, the owner, was exceptional with his communication all though out our trip!
Okay, so our group has rented more luxurious accommodations in the past, but the group was smaller this year, so we didn't need a larger house. So nice that there was ample parking. A lot of even bigger rentals do not have this nice of a parking area. Nice quiet area with easy access to local grocery stores and restaurants - and the new Atlanta Botanical Gardens is just up the road. If you just need to run out for ice, just head back out to the main road and turn left. There is a little store just perfect for that. Actually with three refrigerators, we would not have needed ice, but after finding a big ice-cream maker on the premises, we just had to have some home churned ice cream. There is ample dining at the large dining area, and the living room was perfect. We made use of the big outside bbq grill after getting some propane for it. The kids loved the pool table downstairs as well as the popcorn machine. The downstairs kitchenette was really handy to store overflow of food in. We used all three refrigerators for our crowd for a week. Thanks for having a good washing machine and dryer, too. We streamed meetings on the big TV in the living room. Internet connection was very good. Wish we could meet here during the summer as the lake access is the best! The big kitchen made it easy for multiple cooks to put together our scrumptious meals. The Super Kroger a few miles away had everything we needed for our sumptous feasting...and cheap gas (all things being relative). All plumbing worked well (hey, we have had some disastrous places in the past!). We were advised to take quick showers, and since no one was a linger-in-the-shower type, it was easy to accommodate the request. After some back and forth emails so the owner could ensure we were not going to ruin his property with a party crowd, renting was a very easy process.
This home has 5 bedrooms, a media room and full facilities for a family stay. Enough refrigerators to keep all the food you need for meals. Beds were really comfortable and the owner supplied enough towels, supplies and TP in the bathrooms. Well decorated, but appears to be a project in progress. Some design defects with stairs to lowest level and the kitchen icemaker could not produce enough ice, so bring an extra bag. Icemakers in other two refrigerators not active.
You can use the dock and kayaks for going out on the lake, which is outstanding versus other properties we rented in the past.
Overall, this is a good value since we had 4 separate families for our party and everyone was happy with every minute of our stay
