“We always stay at David’s when we go to Sevierville. He is always so helpful and responsive and his home is amazing! Definitely recommend for getting multiple families together. Super close to Gatlinburg and other things to do. But also house is big and nice enough to stay there and spend time with family as well! We will definitely be returning!”

“David was very prompt in getting back with me. Another reservation had fallen through at the last minute and he responded quickly and helped ease my mind. This was by far the cleanest place I’ve stayed in. The only draw back was the odor of the well water. Beautiful, peaceful setting.”

“We loved everything about this rental. The location was beyond perfect. You are close to the major attractions but still have privacy and can break away from all the noise. The house was huge and all the rooms were well furnished and even with having multiple families stay at the home we never felt like we were on top of each other. The house was clean and had everything we needed such high chairs for our younger kids in the group. The movie room was amazing. All the guests raved about their rooms and beds. There are two large refrigerators so you do not have to worry about not having enough storage for your large group. The owners really thought of everything to make their guests comfortable and their rental time enjoyable. We got locked out and the owners and property manager were so quick to respond. Even prior to your arrival the owners send you an information about the home, attractions near the home and how to use things within the home. Extremely thoughtful. We will definitely be renting this property again in the future.”

“If you are planning a trip to Douglas Lake, it doesn’t get any better than the Tennessee Lake House. The communication with the owner was wonderful and he personally called to answer all my questions prior to our visit. We were a large group of friends & family visiting the area after a wedding in Pigeon Forge and this house fit us perfectly. The house was very comfortable and extremely clean. All of the bedrooms are very spacious and the beds were very comfy. We especially enjoyed relaxing out on the porches and Lakeside Deck. The view from the deck was amazing. The kids loved the community pool and playground. It was a great week…thank you for a five-star vacation!”

“We LOVED this house! The younger kids loved that they had their own hideaway upstairs! The teenagers loved the downstairs game room and theater room… I swear we only saw the kids when it was time to eat! Lol The outside deck and lake were beautiful in the evening as it cooled off outside… we even ended up inviting some friends that live locally to come over and stay too (and still had plenty of beds to spare) The Host, David was wonderful and checking in and out was the easiest experience ever!! They have a high chair and toy/books that were so helpful with the baby! We will 100% be staying here again!! Thank you helping us have a stress free family vacation!! We can’t wait to come back for a much longer stay!”

“Couldn’t have asked for better accommodations for a large family vacation. Beautiful views and great access to lake Douglas. There were 20 kids enjoyed the multiple bunk rooms and all the adults had their private rooms. While there are many great attractions near by we never left the house, just enjoyed our time together on the lake. Arthur was a joy to deal with!”

“The Lake House was just marvelous, there was enough room for everyone. The view was excellent, I enjoyed the porch the best it overlooks part of the lake and was very peaceful and quiet. We had a marvelous week it was sunny all week and, in the 80’s. The game room was used a lot by everyone as well as the theater room.”

“My family and I had a great time together at your Lake House. First time we were all able to stay under 1 roof. My oldest brother is battling cancer and the timing of the trip couldn’t have been better. We definitely needed that time together! Thanks again and I did also leave a review on Trip Advisor.”

“The house was perfect for out huge family of 14 and separated so that our kids could have rooms near us but private. The kids could fish off the dock and the roads to pigeon forge kept us off the main drag and out of traffic. Our 5 days went fast. Not only were we able to get in a few hours early but we were met and shown how to use everything. It was Father’s Day and it allowed us to cook a nice meal for the dads.”

“We used this property for our 2023 Men’s Retreat and this property was exactly what we needed. There was plenty of space for us all. The property is clean and well maintained. We had awesome customer service in dealing with the owners David and Arthur. We have already booked this property for our 2024 Retreat and look forward to going back.

“Beautiful property! Serene setting. 22 of my family members met up here the week before Thanksgiving for a Family Gathering . There was something in the house for everyone to enjoy. The kitchen was well equipped for us to prepare meals . Some enjoyed going fishing, playing pool, enjoying the theater room and the hot tub. They even provided high chairs for the babies. My family loved it and so did I. The property managers were very helpful and responded immediately to solve a minor issue. The thermostat was set on fan instead of heat when we arrived. Problem solved in less than five seconds. Lol I highly recommend this property and look forward to visiting again sometime in the future. My family and I give it 5 thumbs up on a 5 scale radius.”

“The house is beautiful. The layout of the house was strange where there’s rooms within a room, we loved it, it was pretty cool. It had plenty of beds to go around. We were a huge family and there was space and a bed for everyone! The only thing I would note is the lake was drained halfway down, I guess it’s something the city does this time of year. Aside from that, everything went well. The owners were wonderful and personally called beforehand with instructions on checking in. Customer service from the owners exceeded my expectations. I’ve never had a rental owner speak to me personally and it was a nice personal touch to this experience. I would definitely book this house again in the future!”

“I booked this lake house to spend a couple of days and celebrate our 3rd anniversary with my wife and daughter. The booking process with David was pretty easy and he took really good care of us! Inside and outside of the house was great, great view and the house overall was just PERFECT! We are a small family but the house can definitely fit more than 20 people. The cleaning was great and the property privacy was awesome. Definitely recommend you to book this lake house, you will have so much fun! We will definitely book again!”

“I wanted to wait until I had the time to write a thorough review. From the moment that I booked this property until today (2 days after checkout) the hosts have been nothing short of amazing. The property was awesome! There were a few very minor things that I pointed out and Steve, the property manager, jumped right on it. It was 15 women in the house and we actually had beds that were unoccupied. There was more than enough space within the home that we did not feel cramped in any way. Our favorite gathering spots were the kitchen, the hot tub and down by the lake. We hiked through the neighborhood and felt so refreshed and welcomed. I will DEFINITELY book again in the future. I even had a few women that attended with me, that now want to book the property on their own. This, by far, has been one of the greatest experiences I’ve had with a vacation rental. I’ve been renting two to three times per year for the past 5 years doing these Retreats and this has been my greatest experience. Arthur is a gem and Steve, my army veteran brother, was so accommodating and willing to make sure we were most comfortable. We all slept like babies every night. The beds are HUGE and extremely comfortable!! 1,000 stars from me and all of the ladies. Thank you David, Arthur and Steve!”

“Where do I even start with this incredible property? Gosh, it was a dream staying here! My *now* husband and I booked this beautiful home to get married here and spend the weekend with friends and family. It was everything we could have even imagined and more! To start, Arthur was amazing to work with. He was always kind, responsive, and just the best when it came to accommodating all our needs and wants. His home is even more beautiful in person! The rooms are huge, the house is so cozy, and so much space to entertain and comfortably sleep everyone. We had 30 people sleeping here and even more spending time here! The views are breathtaking and the location is perfect! When it came to arrival, Steve met us at the home and showed us around. We were blown away! Steve is hands down the best property manager. He even dropped what he was doing to bring us a few things we needed on our wedding day. We feel like we left with a new friend in Steve and Arthur both! On Thursday, we spent the night grilling, playing pool, and enjoying a bonfire down by the dock. Friday, we all went hiking and spent the day in Gatlinburg which is only 30 minutes away. We had a taco bar catered to the house and had a “taco bout love” theme! Saturday, the men found an awesome golf course and us ladies got ready, had breakfast catered and set up the wedding ceremony in the front drive way. It was breathtakingly gorgeous with the trees and all of the nature around. Words don’t do justice! There’s so many photo ops. We even got pics in the lake since the water was down! The worst part of the weekend was having to leave! We will 100000% be back! Thank you Arthur and Steve for letting us stay at your home. It was the absolute best wedding weekend we could have ever imagined!”

“This house is great for large groups. We had 24 adults and yet it still felt private. The location is perfect, and we absolutely love the lake. We were able to dock our boat overnight and the boat ramp is just down the street from the home. The owners and property managers are great to work with and very responsive and helpful. We have stayed here twice already the past two years, and just booked our third trip for next year. It’s quickly become our groups favorite summer tradition!”

“The lake and the house’s location is spectacular!   Quiet, peaceful, and super clean.  It was so easy to pull skiers and tubers, and teach the young ones to ski in such quiet water.  The marina is a long way from the house-so getting gas for the boat was a bit trickier. The house was the cleanest we have ever stayed in for a rental.  We all so appreciated that!   The kitchen was extremely clean, well equipped, and open enough for our large group to manage meals in.  Due to the size of our family, we prepared all of our meals there. There is plenty of room for all the kids to spread out, or to gather for game nights. The theatre room is amazing.  We had a wonderful time. Thanks so very much for your efforts in providing this home for rent!”

“We had a wonderful time at The Lake House for our family reunion! Everything was super clean and easy to use, and check-in and check-out was convenient and quick. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a place for a large group to vacation together.”

Alana K, Indiana, USA, July 2022


5/5   *****  July 2022

“Location was beautiful and private. The layout of the house worked well for our large group to not feel crowded. The balcony was a relaxing place to enjoy the view. We rented a boat and were happy with the floating dock available right at the house. One concern was the tap water, which is mentioned in the description of the property. It had a strong odor, we would advise folks to bring in plenty of water for brushing teeth, drinking and cooking. We stayed a week and had 15 to18 people. Enjoyed the space and size of the kitchen area for our group cooking. Plenty of dishes and cooking pans available for use, though not many baking pans found. Happy to have two refrigerators to store food and beverages.”

“The property is a gem! It’s scenic, quiet, offers a lot of privacy and has beautiful views of the lake. The house is absolutely beautiful, clean and exquisitely decorated. And the rooms are so spacious! This home is great for large families. We went with our children and grandchildren (a total of 20 of us) and there was something to keep everyone happy – hot tub, theater room, pool table, quiet balcony for reading, a dock on the lake. We all spent some time swimming, floating or paddle boarding on the lake. The grandchildren spent a lot of time in the lake! Our hosts were on top of their game – courteous and responsive to any questions or needs that we had. I highly recommend this house for a family vacation!”

We look forward to our stay every year and we are already itching to come back! The renovations have taken this stay to the next level, and we recommend this house to all of our family and friends. A 100% must book. Thank you again, David. You’ll be seeing us next year.”

If I’m ever back In Tennessee I would definitely rent this house again. My family loved the fishing dock that’s where we spent most of our time fishing and swimming. We loved that everything we wanted to do was within miles to travel. Thanks again for the warm welcome.”

“My family and I, consisting of about 20 of us, stayed at this property for Thanksgiving. Our age ranges were from 2-70+ and to say it was great for all ages is an understatement! We spent most of our time in the home because it was just that cozy and fun! Kids/teens loved the movie room and adults loved conversing in the kitchen or by one of the many fireplaces. We also made use of the hot tub and firepit near the dock, there were just an array of activities we could plan right at the house which was perfect for our plans. Sleeping was mainly comfortable we were just disappointed to find out that the loft space with a set of bunkbeds was not prepared yet for use. We ended up having to put two of our guys on air mattresses, but I believe they are in the process of completing this addition which is another cool space for younger folks to enjoy. Since it was Thanksgiving we did quite a bit of cooking and the kitchen came equipped with most of the supplies we needed, as well as two refrigerators which was ideal, with plenty of space to also move around with several people coming in and out! We loved that even with such a huge house the kitchen was always a gathering place. The area that the house is situated in is very off the beaten path but we loved the privacy and serenity of it all. For next time, we will take into account that the lake is not at normal levels during the fall/winter season so we didn’t get to do any lake activities (but it was also pretty cold during our stay anyway). We can’t brag enough about how much fun we had and we attribute a lot of this to having a comfortable, clean and inviting home to make memories. The entire family that owns and operates this house will make sure you have what you need, their communication is impeccable from start to finish! Please don’t hesitate just book it and see for yourself!!”

“O my God Arthur & David, my wife, family, and friends ABSOLUTELY LOVED our stay!!  The sheer Ambience, the colors of the leaves on the trees, the lake, the peace and quiet, the LOUD noises of Nature.  That’s just a small description of the outdoors- trying to describe it does no justice, you have to see this place in person to understand the Beauty of this estate.  The inside is just as Beautiful – PLENTY of space for large gatherings, entertaining guests will be VERY EASY to do because of the enormous rooms throughout this estate, from top to bottom there are so many wonderful things you can say about this estate.  You will not be disappointed in any way – trust me.  We will DEFINITELY come back!!!”

“We had an absolutely outstanding time at this property. The owners David and Arthur had great communication throughout the process. Steve, the local property manager, was extremely communicative and very quick to respond. The home was completely as advertised and then some. Perfect for our party of 26, in town from all over country for a reunion. The privacy and seclusion of this property are amazing, and we had a blast renting boats from the local marina on Saturday. We brought the boats right up to the property. We really got a lot of use out of the pool table room, got tub, kitchen, theater room, and all of the bean bags throughout the property. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.”

“Dave and his caretaker Steve were fantastic.  Great communication, flexible.  House was perfect for our family reunion of 30.  There were plenty of spaces for each family unit, and we had pretty much everything we needed.  The lake was warm – and absolutely swimmable.  We were able to pull a pontoon up to the dock even (good water level right now).  Firepit was nice addition.  My teen quickly got the sound system working.  Two fridges was helpful.  Area is quiet and nice.  And Dave really seemed to want us to have a great experience.  I don’t know how we will top this for the next reunion – we feel so lucky to have found such a nice place for all of us to be under one roof and far enough away from Pigeon Forge for peace and quiet.  Area does require a bit of research to get food brought in – not a lot of restaurants deliver around here – but if you are willing to pick up, there are places 15 mins – 25 mins away – but that is not unusual for a lake house in a rural area.  Book it – you will love it!”

“This was a great place in a great location on the lake. Very high quality property. Recommend bringing bottled water as the well water had a slight smell to it. Great communication with David all throughout the process and he attended to any concern we had. We had 29 people and felt like we had plenty of room. Thanks!!”

5/5   *****   Stayed July 2021

“Steve the property manager met us at the door, we walked through the whole house and he showed us where everything was. The location is on the calmest part of the lake in a secluded cove but with easy access to the main part of the lake, great dock, lighted at night with a fire pit. We launched our standup from the floating dock. The house is incredible, huge kitchen, the game room gave us something to do at night, great movie room as well. Takes a little thought to operate TVs, movie area overhead, music system upstairs. You can work it all out without getting frustrated. It would be nice if all TVs were on cable or satellite system. If your clueless how to use a charcoal grill then learn. Overall, secluded great family reunion location easy drives to hike, Pigeon Forge, Gaitlinburg or just relax on the lake. Thanks Steve and David.”

Besides the beautiful and scenic location, the house and all it’s amenities were amazing — surround sound in multiple rooms, blue tooth hook-up in the game room, and a fantastic sound system in the theater room. The check-in process was effortless and David was UBER responsive to any need that we had, before and during the trip. Would highly recommend staying in this house as we will be next time we travel to Gatlinburg!”

This property is very beautiful and viewing the renovations that they have will make it that much more enjoyable. I would definitely come again and would recommend those who want an enjoyable peaceful stay to view the availability of this property 1st.

“The Smoky Mountains Lake House that we stayed in for our family New Year’s Vacation was very nice. The house was very spacious and provided different areas for everyone to enjoy(game room, theater room, plenty guests rooms, balcony, lake). we had a great time! My family and I enjoyed the view the lake house provided and the house manager was very welcoming, provided a great tour and made sure we were aware of any info we may need. David the owner was very helpful no matter when we called him, he answered. We would definitely recommend this house to families.”

Not to mention how many thangs there are to do in the area and the other surrounding towns during the holiday month. December was the perfect time to go and my family and I absolutely loved it. David and Courtney (the hosts) were always quick to respond and give great suggestions for things to do. There are tons of Christmas activities for all ages and it was even wonderful staying in the house for a relaxing day. I will 100% be back and look forward to it already. Thank you.”

“What an amazing large family house, situated on a lake with beautiful country surroundings. Fun for the whole family and large enough to accommodate multiple families. Extremely well equipped for cooking meals. The movie theater was fantastic and we watched movies every night, have to say the movie theater was very user friendly. The games room was also a hit with my teenagers. One of our favorite things to do was to sit in the large jacuzzi in the evening and watch the beautiful sunset. Would highly recommend this beautiful house to anyone. It’s the perfect getaway, in an idyllic spot!!”

There are plenty of family activities to do within 45 minutes of the house. We rented a pontoon boat for the day which was a lot of fun for all. The kids loved the movie room and the men enjoyed the pool table. The hosts were responsive with all my questions. Lake life is the best, we didn’t want to leave!”

“The Lake House is gorgeous! It is quite spacious and set up perfectly for a large family or several families to stay together. The kitchen is large and reasonably well stocked for a rental. Bedding was comfortable – sheets and towels are not threadbare like other rentals, but lovely and fluffy! Plenty of seating for everyone, including portable chairs for the dock. The game room was a hit with the kids and the hot tub an extra bonus for the adults. But the lake… the lake is the main attraction! So many “lakehouses” (including in this development) are not actually on the lake… this one is! Just a short flight of steps down to the firepit and deck area and then right into the lake. Douglas Lake is gorgeous and relatively quiet, so our family could swim and float around the dock with no issues from boats. There is a dock in the community (a 5 minute drive) and a pool, which unfortunately was closed due to COVID19 restrictions. A few suggestions: bring your own beach towels and unbreakable cups for the lake (the cups in the house are large tumblers), don’t forget your hairdryer (there was not one in the house), and bring all of your food & drink with you when you arrive as the closest grocery is quite a ways on windy roads. The best part of this rental is the owner, Arthur. He is a lovely British gentleman and made sure we had everything we needed. His son, David, made sure the house was ready and our lock codes were set. Two wonderful hosts! It was a wonderful vacation and we would love to return!”

The teens enjoyed the theater room! I personally did not turn a TV on the entire time we were there and just enjoyed hanging outside with the family. Home is located in private area and it was nice and quiet! Loved our stay and would recommend if you have a large family.”

“We had an amazing and memory filled vacation at David’s house. The house was enormous and fit our very large family well. Everything was very clean, beds were comfortable, kitchen was well stocked. We spent most days floating right off the dock. The house is tucked back into a cove and there was minimal boat traffic (even on 4th of July weekend). We had kids from ages 13 to 1 and they all had a blast.”

“We had the best time! This house was just perfect. Gorgeous in every way. Every room was immaculate and super clean too. Tons of bedrooms for the 4 families and the kids space was just perfect! We had 8 adults and 8 children and had tons of room. The lake access was amazing. We spent most of our time at the water. We brought floats and paddle boards and enjoyed the private dock and private lake space. The water was perfect for swimming. We had kids ranging from 4 years old to 11 years old and had no issues. The fire pit at night was perfect for roasting marshmallows. We also loved the theatre room for movies and hanging out in the evenings. David the host was so wonderful and responsive to any questions. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. It was like a private lake front oasis. We only wished we would have booked more days! We highly recommend and cannot wait to come back.”

“We chose this house to have our wedding at. The deck overlooking Lake Douglas could not have been a more perfect backdrop. The house was super spacious and we were able to have all of our guests stay with us on the property. With 25 people inside it never felt crowded. The owner is very easy to work with and super responsive. The house and property were beautiful and being on your own little peninsula was very private. I would highly recommend staying here.

“We had a group of 20 with small kid and adults and this home was PERFECT WITH THE BEST LOCATION.  We enjoyed evenings on the deck over looking the water and mornings sitting on the patio enjoying meals together.  The home is large and fit everyone without ever feeling too tight.  The only call outs would be that bunk beds are all in the same room, which was a bit unclear from the photos on the listing.  Also, there is not a dock so we unfortunately couldn’t keep rented boats over night but it was easy to hop in the boats from the steps and load in coolers and babies etc.  Overall, we had the best weekend that was too short!  WE WOULD LOVE TO RETURN BUT THIS TIME HOPEFULLY CAN STAY LONGER!”

Kelsey M, Ohio, USA, August 2019

“My group of 15 had an EXCEPTIONAL TIME HERE.  The house is gorgeous and clean.  We especially enjoyed the swim deck, theater room, and ample bedroom space.  The views are beautiful and there is an excellent spot to swim right off the lake.  The hot tub and balcony are very comfortable spots for hanging as well.
Some things for potential guests to be aware of:
The swim deck is not well equipped for tying down a boat.  Only suitable for pickup and dropoff.
The house is on well water, and the gas from the well smells funky, like sulfur.  It it pretty offputting at first, but you get used to it.
Garbage dropoff is at the front of the community, about 1/4 mile away, and there is nowhere to store full bags before taking the drive up.  A large can for temporary storage just outside the garage or under the deck would be a big improvement.
No smoking allowed on the balcony.  This seemed a little unreasonable, but the swim deck by the lake is a good alternative.
None of those potential drawbacks would prevent us from booking here again.  The owner group was professional and responsive to issues as they came up.”

We loved using the great amenities such as the hot tub, pool table, deck and fire pit.  There is a sound system in both the basement and the common room, both of which worked very well.  The couch/beds were extremely comfortable.  I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS HOUSE FOR ANY LARGE GROUP.  If I had the chance,  I WOULD DEFINITELY STAY HERE AGAIN.  100% WORTH THE MONEY”

“This home was TERRIFIC for our “sibling reunion”, which included six families off and on throughout the week.  The lake house was at the end of the cove, which was also near the pool.  So it was nice and quiet yet close enough to a marina and other fun things.  The water was clear and cool.  The kitchen was my favorite part inside the house.  That area boasted a huge island that made it convenient for many people to cook and talk simultaneously.  Two ovens made lots of bacon!  The theater room was huge and oh so comfortable, and we had lots of folks falling asleep in there.  It was like the people on the screen where life-size!  While the layout of one bedroom upstairs was a little quirky, it’s size and view made up for it.  The kids’ wing, with the many bunkbeds and little Rooms coming off the main room of bunkbeds, made the rest of the bedrooms elsewhere for the adults even better.  There is more to say, but I have said enough.  One of the biggest things about this house is the RESPONSIVENESS OF THE OWNERS.  They call back immediately, are extremely kind and caring, and welcomed all my many, many questions.  These folks really put their hearts into this house and care about your good time.”
