We were treated like family instead of guests! Sat around the fire pit one night, along with their neighbors, & chatted for about 2 hours. They treated us to supper the next night - it was Great ! Will definitely keep in touch with them.

We had a very nice visit with these two and their 3 well-loved pups. After having G's help with positioning our truck camper elsewhere than the planned gravel spot due to wires too low for our rig, we settled in nicely. Then to our amazement, they plated us a dinner which they will never know how much it was so appreciated after a long traveling day! Quiet, no road noise. Thank you for your hospitality!

It’s our 2nd visit here & after a very long day driving, it was like coming home. Beautiful lake area & nice quiet neighborhood to sleep under the stars. A nice evening around the campfire (thanks “G” for the great fire) & great conversations into the night. Our dog, Jaxson made 3 new friends, with their nice dogs. He and Daisy ran & played until they both ran out of energy. We hope to return on our next trips to the area - arrive as strangers, leave as friends!

This was a convenient stopover prior to visiting Oak Ridge. Guests were helpful getting us settled, had water, electricity and WiFi. Short walk to the lake made for a nice end to our day. Restful night.
