GREAT LOCATION AND PERFECT HOUSE for the family vacation that my family was looking for. We felt right at home from the moment we arrived.  CAN’T WAIT TO COME BACK.”

“The house is beautiful on a FANTASTIC 5 ACRE LOT RIGHT ON THE WATER.  The 7 bedrooms were very comfortable and the kitchen and dining room are equally well-equipped and large.  The owner was very friendly and responsive.  We especially liked the dock on the property and direct access to the water. It was a GREAT FAMILY RETREAT and WE WILL VISIT AGAIN.”

“This place is AMAZING, it was great getaway for our big family.  We truly enjoyed watching movies on the huge screen of the cinema, playing billiards in the basement and the bonfire by the lake.  The house was very clean, and everything was well kept, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook our home made meals.  We went to Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg for day trips, which were about 30 mins drive from the lake house.  Overall WOULD RECOMMEND THIS HOUSE and WOULD GLADLY COME AGAIN IN THE FUTURE.”

“David’s place is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.  I know everyone was sad to leave.  Check-in was easy, and David left us alone our entire trip.  David is a fantastic host.  The home’s location is PERFECT, with it being far enough from Gatlinburg to avoid all the traffic/tourists, while still being close enough to where the drive in isn’t terrible.  It is in a rental cabin area, but the property itself is private.  The driveway is long enough to where you can’t even hear other people and there is plenty of parking.  The view of the lake is amazing.  The home has a ton of amenities with cups, plates, pots, pans, towels etc. all provided.  The house was FANTASTIC as every room was kept in great quality, and a ton of space for all of us. 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”

FABULOUS lakefront house, superbly furnished and fitted with great facilities including theater room, games room, hot tub, lakeside fire pit, and private boat dock.  IDEAL FOR FAMILY REUNION OR ANY SPECIAL PARTY INCLUDING WEDDINGS.

“My family spent 10 days in this FABULOUS HOME.  The 3 generations ranging from an infant to a senior citizen all had a great time.  During their stay they hired a pontoon boat and jet ski and spent a fantastic day on Douglas Lake including docking at the Lake House’s private dock to get more refreshments.  Some of the family also spent a memorable day at beautiful Ashville and Biltmore House & Estate.”

“This house was everything we needed and more for our family reunion!  It’s BEAUTIFUL AND SPACIOUS.  Everyone had a great time!  Close enough to town to go do things but so peaceful being right on the lake.  The owners are so helpful and accommodating.  I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS HOUSE to anyone who needs space for a larger group.”

“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.”

“Beautiful well appointed home with OUTSTANDING VIEWS FROM DECKS.  Douglas Lake was fun to experience from a rented boat.  Hot tub seemed brand new.  Community pool available.  Very near to plenty of excellent outdoor activities, white water rafting, ropes courses, fabulous Gatlinburg.”

“This property is EXCEPTIONAL.  It is clean, exceedingly well-equipped, large, and very comfortable with all the amenities one could want for a lake vacation.  We especially liked the dock right on the water near the fire pit.  We couldn’t have asked for anything more.  The owner was very friendly and responsive to our every need.  WE WILL DEFINITELY STAY HERE AGAIN.”

UNFORGETABLE STAY in this extremely well equipped and beautifully furnished home.  The new boat dock and fire pit had just been completed and we spent an evening around the fire pit enjoying a cold drink as the sun went down, then on to the theatre room to watch a movie.  JUST GREAT!!!!!

“David’s lake house was SPECTACULAR.  All the amenities were provided and easy to find, the views were very scenic and beautiful, and the service/communication couldn’t have been better.  The lake was very nice to go out on and spend time during the day and the decks and porches were a great relaxing place during the days and nights.  All of my friends and I had a great time and there is ample capacity for group events and relaxing summer trips.  David and his manager were always available for help/questions during the trip and even recommended fun activities in the area.  David will answer any questions you have about the place beforehand and provide any extra information about the area that you need to know.  WOULD RECOMMEND to anyone who is looking for a fun group vacation in the area!”

“The house was comfortable, spacious, clean and well appointed.  The deck over the water and the fire-pit were very nice.  And we enjoyed the lake, finding it to be very un-populated and without much tree debris.  The property manager was super responsive.  Plenty of laundry soap on-hand, and if you’re staying for more than a few days, bring your own soap and shampoo.  Hairdryer too!  WE RECOMMEND THE PLACE and LOOK FORWARD TO VISITING AGAIN SOMETIME SOON.”

“We were trying to find a place that would hold the 18 members of our family.  This house worked out very well!  It was GREAT because we could prepare our own meals in the huge kitchen!  We spent many nights on the porch and the VIEWS WERE BEAUTIFUL!  The only concerns we had was due to the smell of sulphur in the water and showers,  but we got used to that after a few days.”

“My co-workers and I stayed at David’s beautiful home for Memorial Day weekend and the house was MORE THAN WHAT WE HAD EVER IMAGINED.  The house was really clean and everything was well taken care of.  The theater room was comfortable with lots of seating, the pool table is well taken care of and the living room is big with a large ceiling.  The view from the back porch is priceless(woke up in the morning had some orange juice and just enjoyed the beautiful view of the mountains and the river)!  There was plenty of room for all 18 of us and everything we needed from cooking pans to toilet paper was also available.  David was an awesome host and was available to contact at anytime.  We had an issue with the alarm( one of the coworkers activated while we were getting ready to leave) but one quick call to David solve that issue.  WE HAD AN AMAZING TIME AND WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK.  I would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND David’s lake house for an amazing gateway.”

“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!”

“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.”
