Beautiful home in a very beautiful location. Very good communication. Lack on television and WIFI were main drawbacks.

Response from Priscilla:
Thank you Chuck for reminding other guests that our home is technology free...on purpose! This is stated in our information about the home on our site. We want our guests to enjoy our tranquil setting and have plenty of time for rest and relaxation. We feel no technology put the "R" in R & R!

Our family had a great time at this lovely house and property. The kids loved fishing and kayaking, and we enjoyed the local boardwalk and trail. It's close enough to Auburn and Montgomery to spend time there, as well. The house had all the amenities you will need, including all those little things that are so easy to forget about, like seasonings, condiments, cooking supplies, tin foil, etc. Priscilla was easy to communicate with, as well. This was our first experience with Airbnb, and the bar has been set pretty high! ☺️

Any Auburn football fan knows that staying in Auburn for a football weekend can be ridiculously expensive, let alone if there is any hotel availability. This retreat was the perfect alternative! It provided our family with spacious living and a beautiful outdoor view! Something no hotel could give us! The location was perfect! We were able to drive on and off campus for the game free of traffic! And while not on campus enjoying the football festivities, we were able to enjoy the outdoors--canoeing, fishing, grilling out, and relaxing! Our extended AU football opener/Labor Day weekend felt like 2 weekend getaways combined in one! Thank you, Priscilla, for welcoming our family with open arms! Your friendly welcome and hospitable spirit made us feel right at home! Looking forward to a new family tradition! War Eagle!

This Airbnb rental is the epitome of a vacationer's dream. It is easy to locate, beautifully set against the water and more awesome than the photos. Priscilla is a phone call or text away. She responds quickly and wants her guests happy. Plenty of room for everyone and all the amenities of an outdoor retreat!! We will be back!

This beautiful retreat is a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle but yet walking distance to a few restaurants and shops. The house has an amazing welcoming feel with plenty of room for a large family. The deck and lake access was our relaxation and entertainment. We played games, visited , enjoyed a picnic and shared times on the porch swing. The hospitality of this family was remarkable !

We had a very nice and relaxing time and everything was wonderful. If you want a nice relaxing place away from the hustle and bustle any time of year, this is the place. Plenty of room, a beautiful view of the water from a very nice porch and deck. A very nice assortment of breakfast items including doughnuts, fruit, coffee, and juice was provided. Had a kayak to use around the lake, a charcoal grill, washer/dryer, porch swings, swing by the lake. Very nice! We loved our stay and plan to return often!!
