  • Warmth on a very cold weekend!


    The property manager made this property easy to rent. The description is exactly as presented. Signage could be amped up a little bit, or directions could be better for finding Sunset Lodge Rd, and from the turn off to "Our Lakeside Retreat". Was a little confusing when arriving in the dark. Once we arrived, we did a walk through. The home was very nicely decorated and had everything you could want. We did experience trouble with the television, but the property manager was quick to respond to our cry for help and remedied the situation promptly. Because it was so bitterly cold we didn't get to enjoy the outside amenities, but the inside kept us very comfortable. It was very quiet and relaxing, and the view was amazing even if only through the windows!! I'm sure the different seasons bring about different experiences!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

  • nice place


    The house was very nice. Shower was a little small but nice. Found out that there is no longer any shore fishing allowed at the lake. There is not any direct access to the lake behind the house. Very enjoyable and relaxing stay - just what we were looking for.

    Response from owner: "Teresa, We were so happy you enjoyed your stay at Our Lakeside Retreat, and hope to have you back soon! Shore fishing actually is allowed at Herrington Lake, but most of the land around the lake is privately owned. Permission to fish would be dependent on the individual land owners. Many of the Marinas do allow fishing from their docks and/or rent fishing boats (and pontoon boats, etc) for this purpose. Sunset Marina sits just behind the lake house (a 3 minute walk from from the front porch) and provides these services. They also serve wonderful meals, and often provide weekend entertainment. At Our Lakeside Retreat we provide complimentary fishing poles for our guests to use, which can be found hanging in the sun room that looks over the lake. We have a beautiful lake for fishing and water sports, and Herrington Lake is a big attraction for Bass tournaments. Due to steep banks and brush around the water's edge, however, the lake may be enjoyed more with the use a boat. We hope you find this information helpful. Thank you for allowing us to host you during your stay at Herrington Lake. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!"

  • Great Getaway Cabin


    This was a great place to stay. Amazing deck out back with views of the lake (river?). Nice interior with a good bedroom and shower. Very peaceful place to stay. The owner was very quick to respond to the few hiccups we had.
