    Great Lake House Getaway

    Great getaway for the family. Property exceeded expectations for both the house & lake access. Lots of amenities & privacy. Owner was always quick to respond to any questions. Beautiful sunsets from the dock. A couple of us in the group are guitar pickers, so we loved the house decor. Highly recommend.

    Fantastic place!!!!!!!!

    I cannot say enough good things about this house!! The house was everything we hoped for and more, it was super clean and stocked with everything you could need. The beds were super comfy and there was plenty of room in the family room for us to stretch out and relax. The view from the house was incredible and it was so nice being able to walk out the back door straight down to the river. We would definitely stay here again!!!!!

    Beautiful spot!

    Loved the location of this house on the water. Gorgeous sunsets. Very peaceful and relaxing. Great communication. And best of all it was dog friendly. A very large level lot which my dog loved. Really cool, eclectic house. Felt like I was staying at a friend's house. Would definitely visit again! The view is amazing!

    Simply Amazing

    We needed a short getaway from work and this was the perfect place. I cannot say enough about everything with this property. Communication with the owner was spot on. Quick responses and so incredibly helpful. And the house itself? Just. Wow. We lived in the sunroom - that view!! We planned to go out to eat a few nights but once we got there, we realized nothing would be better than staying there. We loaded up and grilled out every night. Quiet, beautiful...there aren't enough words. We will definitely be back!!

    Beautiful “Get Away”

    This place was wonderful for us. The house was extremely comfortable and welcoming. The view of the lake was awesome, and the sunsets were beautiful. The owner was extremely accommodating and easy to reach. We hope to go back next year.

    Lovely home on the lake!

    There were four of us who came to this wonderful home, and there was plenty of room. There were two beds we didn’t even use. The house was very clean and orderly. The view of the lake from the house is absolutely beautiful. The home is right on the water with easy stairs down to the dock. We fished from the dock and put our kayaks in there too. It was a wonderful time! The kitchen was stocked with cooking supplies and coffee (most importantly!). We also brought along our pups who really had a great time. There is only one neighbor in close proximity, but we still felt secluded and private. The screened in porch is where we spent most of our time in the evenings, perfect for keeping mosquitoes away. It was a great weekend and we hope to be back!

    Very enjoyable experience - beautiful location

    We had a completely enjoyable stay. The house was everything expected and more, and the property's location right on the bank of the beautiful Tennessee River / Wheeler Lake made for incredible views and scenery. I've stayed at a number of VRBO houses, and this home was by far one of the best furnished that I have experienced. Everything was very comfortable. I highly recommend this location.

    Quiet-out of the way

    We had a wonderful time staying here. It is about a 20 min. drive from Athens in a very quiet area along the Tennessee River/Wheeler Lake. Enjoyed spending time on the patio having dinner or just watching/listening to the birds. Would definitely recommend this place.
