I am the owner and operator of a horseback riding therapy center for mental and physically challenged children and adults.
This place was awesome! Betty was quick with getting back to us on questions and directions! Danny was the nicest host! The photos do not do it justice! Great wknd. Getaway w/the kids! The game room was super awesome! It was a bit cool and windy while we there. However, the kids really enjoyed the double decker dock with slide, diving board and rope the day we got there.
Danny made breakfast, which was really yummy. He even loaded up a fishing pole for me! Would defiantly visit again!
We were greeted by the owner and he was very cordial and open to helping us with our stay. Great lakeside spot! We did not get time to enjoy the game room but certainly it looked like a great add on.
We made the road trip there with our three grandchildren and two dogs to enjoy a few days away during spring break. Betty and her sweet dog, Sandy were exceptionally accommodating. Everything we needed was in the house ... Kitchen supplies, plenty of extra large towels, soft beds, and even toiletries in case you forget something. Everything was thought of, even Q-tips. A BBQ pit was available, the air conditioner cools the house well, the property was nicely landscaped, open space, nice patio and deck, convenient covered parking. The house is located next to the owner's home with a large, 2-level deck on the lake. The owner, Danny, is a genuinely nice guy. He even caught shad for us so we could catch catfish and went so far as giving us everything we need and baiting the line so we could fish. Danny built his dock so it would be "grandkid-friendly" complete with a slide, diving board, tables and chairs, and a rope the kids could swing on and jump in the lake. The dock has lights so you can sit out there at night and see the stars. Danny also had a rope swing he made for he yard and he explained how he climbed that tall tree years ago and hung that swing. The children loved the entire experience. The house is located near "goat island" where you can sometimes see goats since the island is so close to the property. The game room was perfect for us because you can play music, shoot pool, there is a toy box the kids raided, two televisions with cable, darts, shuffleboard, a table, couch, and a fully-stocked bar. It is well worth the extra fees for the gameroom. we look forward to returning about 2-3 times a year to this location. Danny and Betty made my first trip booked on Airbnb a success and we look forward to many more.
The host was very welcoming. It was fairly easy to find. Even with rainy weather we found enough to do. The closest store was a Dollar General that had basic necessities.
Great place to stay. We stayed for a week. Clean, comfortable, nice functioning kitchenette. No complaints. Our only suggestion would be to replace the large, cumbersome crib and rocking chair with a table and a couple chairs. We had no place to sit and ended up balancing our plates of food on our laps whilst sitting on the bed. Otherwise, no complaints! Would definitely stay again!
This place is undeniably everything they say it is and much more! Great amenities! Perfect ambiance! Décor was tastefully done! Location, location, location!! We will definitely be back again and again! Betty has got to be the best hostess! She made sure everything was perfect for us as we celebrated our anniversary. Better than any fancy bed and breakfast, resort or hotel!
We loved this place and wish we could have stayed longer. Betty and Danny were awesome!
We stayed in unit "A" which has three bedrooms, two of which had king sized beds, and a third with two doubles. There was also a kitchenette with a stove, under-counter fridge, microwave, and coffer maker in the main bedroom. There is also a large enclosed porch with plenty of seating for those who want to relax on the patio.
I highly recommend that any guest also book the game room. This is not your typical game room, and it was the highlight of the stay. It's huge, with a large full bar accommodating eight stools, pool table, shuffle board, dart boards, card table, and tons of games. The kids played on the Karaoke machine for at least an hour. There was no reason to go to the "unit" until we were ready for bed. The game room had everything you need including ice maker, large top access fridge, microwave, etc.
We hope to visit again when it is a little warmer and bring the boat with us, as the complex is right on the water with a dock.
If you get the chance to meet Danny, you will know he is a great guy. He's the kind of person you can listen to and enjoy. His hospitality and efforts to make us feel at home are unsurpassed.
Betty called and asked if we wouldn't mind if she stopped by to say hello, and we were delighted to meet her. She saw me looking for a pizza place in town and insisted that it would be no trouble for her to get it for us since she was going that way anyway. I thought that was really great and we took her up on the offer.
When we travel we try to stay in places like the one in Trinity. Whether on the beach, in the mountains, or along the way, it's nice to have your own little place for a few days. The kids said this was one of their favorites so far. My oldest said, "Dad, you did good".
This is not a luxury resort. However, this is exactly the kind of place we enjoy. It was clean. There were plenty of towels. The hosts were fantastic!
Reminder - you really need to reserve the game room!!! You will regret it if you don't
We absolutely loved this place!!! It was right on the water and had huge windows so you had a gorgeous view. It's a shame it was foggy every morning but you can't fix the weather. It had a separate game room with pool table, jukebox, It would be perfect for entertaining if a family comes. Danny, who lives on the property, was an awesome host. Even made us breakfast one morning(unfortunately we didn't know til later because he's in a separate building. We plan on coming back as soon as we can.
My husband and I loved this place! It was quiet and peaceful. Betty was a perfect host making sure everything we would need was stocked and checking in to make sure evrything was ok. The way she had the cottage decorated made the place feel homey. We weren't there most of the time but I wouldn't have minded being stuck there if the weather had gotten bad. I do wish there was a cell tower closer as I barely had cell coverage there but that's the only down side. We plan on reserving this place whenever we come visit family in the next town over! Thanks so much! :)
The cottage was great. Very cozy and had everything we needed.
