  • Nice Kitchen but disappointing


    We only end up staying one night out do the three we had booked. The kitchen is very nice and very well appointed. It seemed to be stocked with absolutely everything you could possibly need. With that being said there were more minuses for us than an awesome kitchen could make up for. The beds were very comfortable and the smart tvs were nice. The home had a strong of mold or mildew. The bathrooms are so incredibly small. We had very low warm water, it was not possible to get the water hot enough for a comfortable shower. The view is ok, and is on the lake but there is a very busy road directly behind the house that you can not see from the pictures. For us the road to get to the house caused a lot of anxiety. It is very very very small and is only wide enough for one car. You can not turn around. We missed the turn for the drive and had a hard time figuring out how to get onto the street because it wasn’t wide enough to make the turn. I mentioned this to the owner and said that they have never had this issue before. But for us it really dampened our experience. We would not return.

    Manager's Response:

    Owners response: "Amber, the right vacation home is everything, and we're disappointed if this wasn't the one for you. We appreciate that you positively mention the kitchen, bed comfortability, and TVs but we put so much more into this home.
    - We had our cleaners inspect for mold and mildew and none was found anywhere. We also inspected the filters on the HVAC and they were all clean. We have had a lot of rain that could have possibly led to the damp smell, but we would have been happy to come by if you would have let us know while you were in the home
    - The photos in the listing are accurate and we feel represent the size of the bathrooms very well
    - We were unaware of any issues with the hot water, we had our maintenance staff look at the water heater and they found an issue with one of the elements, we have installed a new one
    - Although we can't control the traffic, we have taken this opportunity to add a note to our listing regarding access and the one-lane road so that our guests know what to expect
    We truly go above and beyond for our guests, and we are confident that future guests will have excellent stays! We will continue to deliver the 5-star reviews we are known for."

  • Great place, nice host


    We came up in late October 2022 at the end of the leaf season. The house was very comfortable and well equipped. Santeetlah is a beautiful lake and we really enjoyed the kayaks. Thanks so much!

  • Wonderful home on the lake


    Cabin is very well-maintained, clean, well stocked. Location is on quiet cove of lake Santeetlah, but easy to access and not too far from Robbinsville. Great amenities—4 kayaks, floats and pfds. Fire pit and dock were great too.We highly recommend this property and look forward to returning.

  • Great Lake House


    Wonderfully appointed, comfortable house, well stocked, amazing views, kayaks and floaties were awesome. Great new kitchen! Almost no boat traffic in this area when we were there. 1 mile by water to Massey Branch boat launch.Would return! If you are a light sleeper or annoyed by dogs barking, be warned that across the way are a group of hound dogs that bark for solid hours, as well as sporadically through the day AND night (guess they are kept outside overnight). As mentioned in their listing, the wifi is on the slower side. If you require TV or video meetings while on vacay, you might want to bring your own hotspot or make other plans as it's unreliable / slow.

  • Girls trip to the lake


    Some girlfriends and I booked a few nights at Lake Santeelah to go paddle boarding and relax. The house was easy to find, and we loved that it was right on the lake. The house was clean, however it could have used some upgrades for sure and it was a bit smaller than I thought would be. We loved the kayaks that were provided, and although we didn't use it, it was awesome to have a fire pit. There were 6 of us, and it was a bit tight, mostly because we had to share beds, and the two bathrooms (both upstairs) were very small. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked all our meals. We had one unfortunate experience which was I was swimming by the dock and someone had tied a fish hook to fishing line and hung it in the water off the dock. The fish hook caught into my foot and I had to go to Urgent Care- not fun!!!! I don't blame the property management company as there would be no way they could have know that the hook was there, however their response was underwhelming. I do think that the communication on their end could have been quicker and more supportive for sure. My overall impression of this house was good. We had a great time.
