This home is perfect for a family/friend getaway. Nestled just on the lakes shoreline it oversees the lake like a picture. Even more so in the morning when the sun comes up over the water and trees. The owner is quick and extremely thoughful and very hospitable. Can't wait to stay again!!

The lake house was spectacular. It was a perfect setting for our families to unwind from our busy schedules. We had a few rainy days, but our accommodations provided us with lots to do in a very comfortable setting. We had pool tournaments, played games, roasted s?mores, went boating, you name it, we did it! The owners were available to answer any questions we had and were super helpful! We did not want for a single thing. We would definitely recommend this special place!

They came to mow the lawn at 6 in the morning waking everyone up including the baby. But wheb we were going home we realized that my right car window was cracked from when they mowed the lawn. When we had asked them about this they claimed that it was not theyre fault but the right side of the car was facing the grass and we were not aware until 30 minutes into our ride back

Our large group enjoyed every minute of this place. It is beautiful. The home is very clean and well stocked. There is plenty to do without having to leave.

This home is wonderful! The lake views can't be beat. Both decks are the perfect spot for coffee, dinner, or just lounging. The kids loved having a yard to play and we loved having a private dock! The house was very well equipped for all of our needs. We had plenty of space and were very comfortable. We will for sure be back and can't wait!

Gratitude Retreat Center is a very special place on earth! The owners Linda and Keith put a lot of love and care into their place and you can feel it the moment you approach. The living space is amazing- we were a party of 12 and everyone had their own bed and space to move in. The outdoors however is the highlight. Beautiful Mountain View‚Äôs beyond the quiet lake. Many birds calling and stunning sunrises! The decks, fire pits and floating dock create magical places to enjoy the day and watch the stars at night. We celebrated one of our son‚Äôs graduations and hosted a gathering for our North Carolina friends (we are from Detroit). The hosts provided everything we could imagine to just relax and enjoy our time together. They even surprised our son with signs, balloons and party supplies for graduation. We look forward to crossing paths again someday. It‚Äôs a wonderful place for families to gather and would be awesome for a yoga retreat! Thank you!
