"Epic Weekend!" * * * * *
"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. You will not be disappointed."

"Awesome weekend and everything was perfect. Perfect house, location, weather and weekend!" PB, Kentucky, USA

"Spectacular Wedding." * * * * *
"The house is absolutely beautiful. My daughter got married on the Deck down by the Lake. She loved everything about it. We had a great time and the wedding was spectacular."
RT, Kentucky, USA

"Terrific Home for a reunion of friends" * * * * *
"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."
RW, Ohio, USA

"Outstanding!!!" * * * * *
"Beautiful well appointed home with outstanding views from the 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."
LB, New York, USA

“Huge home and beautiful lake close to everything” * * * * *
"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."
