I strongly recommend this host. It might be a little remote from the main roads but it will absolutely worth it! You will find a Gem 💎 on a lake with big space for walks, nice forest and above all, a wonderful couple who really cares about your well-being, and if the timing is good, you might be invited for dinner and have very interesting conversations!

Kerry & wife Marlice (apologize for spelling) were very gracious hosts. Hubby & I were greeted warmly and invited to join them for hordorves (sp?) We had great conversation, enjoyed all of their stories. The road in is windy, but the view is so worth the trip.

A beautiful place to stay, the hosts were very accommodating going above and beyond. We enjoyed hearing all about their travels. We parked looking out over the lake, enjoyed the dogs, watching the hummingbirds and sharing a bottle of wine! True southern hospitality. When following the gps be sure there is a road sign with street name where you turn . We followed gps and the road for a short way was a little rough if we’d have gone about .2 miles further where the street sign is there is a great road.
