We have never been to this lake area with forests to the shore!! So many waterfalls to visit!! Our view from the house was beautiful and the screen porch was so comfortable for relaxing or dining by candle light! It was great that the master and all main living areas were on one level. I hope we get to return one day. Thank you so much for hosting us. Maryetta ”
We had a blast for the week here at this property! It was the perfect layout for a large family to spread out and enjoy the space! We even rented some pontoon boats a few days from one of the local marinas. We'll be back as we didn't want to even leave!”
We were incredibly lucky to be able to spend a weekend at Steve's lake home with friends and loved ones, away from the bustle of Nashville. The lake and forest views from the multiple decks were absolutely stunning, and we spent the majority of our time enjoying the peaceful solitude of the house and grounds. The weather was perfect, remaining cool and idyllic the entire time we were there. While we originally planned on using the house as a base camp for our explorations in the area, we ended up spending the majority of our time perched around the fireplace in the large screened-in porch, relaxing on the porch swing, making use of the well-stocked kitchen, and playing billiards late into the night. Steve was a fantastic and responsive host, leaving his personal number and a useful binder with recommendations of nearby activities and usage of devices in the home. Absolutely amazing and we had to leave much too soon! Thank you for opening your home to us, Steve :)”
