About this listing
Our in town vacation home is directly on the water at the Barnett Reservior with boat slip. 6 bedrooms 3 baths. You will have the house all to yourself.
It is great for birthdays, family reunions or wedding parties. Plenty of outdoor chairs and fold up tables. My wife named it the "Love Shack". Pretty cool place. We have a Trek Bike, boat slip, outdoor fire pit and gas grill. Nearby walking trails, boat launches, public parks and plenty of restaurants.
Sorry but no pets allowed. We have allergies.
We have a lock box in the carport.
Interaction with Guests
I won't interact with the guests unless there is a problem.
This is a residential neighborhood with mostly homeowners living there full time.
Be sure to contact Walter to make sure it is available when you want to come.
Sorry but no pets allowed. Our family has dog allergies.
This is the second time we stayed at the "Love Shack. " The house is spacious and provided plenty of sleeping space for our large groups. The backyard is a great place to gather and relax. There was plenty of space for us to set up horse shoes for the adults, an obstacle course for the kids, a fishing station, and a small T-ball field without having to move the other stations. The kids loved to feed the geese and were excited to see the alligator when he showed his face. Although you can't swim at the house, we rented a boat on both visits and were able to go tubing and swimming away from the house. The boat slip at the house makes it convenient for loading and unloading the boat. The one draw back is the mosquitos. We were prepared this visit with our bug spray and citronella candles, but I think the mosquitos still won our war! Then again, my kids seem to be extra sensitive to bug bites anyway. Overall, we love the space, yard, and location and plan to return again!
We felt very welcomed in the home. It was very beautiful. the listing and description was very accurate and the neighborhood was beautiful.
We had a great time in Walter's place. Good location, well stocked, and it had a great feel with good WIFI. Relaxing on the back porch felt like a forest and a lake was only feet away (which it was). Very nice and was as advertised.
The house was exactly as described! Walter went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. Nice touch on leaving the bike in the master bedroom. My husband enjoyed taking it out for a ride.
The house is fantastic and in a great neighborhood. We had several employees in town for a business trip, and it was the perfect size for all of us. We're already working on booking it for our next trip to Jackson. I spent most of one day on the porch working with the lake in the background. It was very peaceful. Walter was great and easily accessible.
How did your host make you feel welcome?
Walter was very helpful and friendly during all of our phone conversations. The vacation home was everything we needed. Lots of kitchen stuff to work with. You will find plenty of comfortable space to hang around during your visit. The welcome letter on the counter made us feel like we were welcome to settle in and enjoy ourselves. We were a bit concerned that we didn't get a check-in information contact as our time came close, but a phone call to Walter gave us everything we needed. Walter has everything under control.
Was the listing description accurate?
The listing was very accurate. Everything was clean and orderly when we arrived.
What was the neighborhood like?
The area was friendly and convenient to a Krogers supermarket and many other businesses with just a short drive or even a bike ride as we did.
P.S. - You will likely get greeted by an at first barking yellow lab named Odie. No reason to be concerned. He is very friendly, gentle, and well behaved. The owner didn't mind that we gave him some treats from our not with us dog's van biscuit stash. (I checked with Odie's owner.)
My whole experience with this property was great. Walter and Aydelle were excellent. I would recommend this place to anyone. Great location and quiet neighborhood.
