Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Perfect place for family & friends. You can be together or spread out!

  • 5 of 5

WE had a wonderful time at Thomas Trail. We didn't get to explore outdoors because of torrential rains but a handful made the little hike down to the lake. The house more than made up for not being able to be outdoors. We had puzzle going on in the dining area, skip-bo in the living, lovely fire in the fireplace. Great food, some that we cooked on the grill in the rain but it all worked out fantastic!

Owners and caretakers available to answer any questions promptly.

kitchen stocked well with dishes, pots and pans. if you need a specialty item you might bring it, but overall most everything you need. Plenty of linens and towels, too! We slept 11 very comfortably. The media room and foosball table was a big hit. you could barely hear it upstairs. All tastefully decorated, comfortable as soon as we walked in and so glad i found it. Would absolutely use again! Thank you for having such a wonderful was asking if we could do this again sometime.

Perfect place for a memorable vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was PERFECT for our family gathering. It was spacious, clean, and had everything we needed. The outdoor space was so much fun for the kids to run and play. We saw deer on the property, and the view of the river was beautiful. The caretaker even took the time to let us know of severe weather in the area. The owners were so flexible and accommodating. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation experience. We will definitely try to stay here again.

Our family really enjoyed our weekend at Thomas Trails!

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay! The house was huge and easily accommodated our family of 12. We loved the large outdoor space. A walk down the the lake. Explored the old Rock cabins on the property. Great photo background! We even played a game of softball in the side yard. The grand daughters loved the dollhouse and play kitchen in the huge play room. Nice collection of books, games, puzzles and videos. The grand kids were very impressed with the "movie room". We loved the quiet property with fabulous lake view. But only a quick drive to the landing for the big girls to shop. The caregiver's live on the property, but never even knew they were around! The only problem we had.....We could only stay for the weekend! Not enough time to truly enjoy everything this property offers!

Can't go wrong with this place!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house and great people to work with! Everything was as described. Plenty of room for everyone ,and service pets, to spread out and relax. They thought of everything - even down to a welcome basket with cookies, sparkling juice and treats for the service dogs. Well stocked on supplies-even starters for a fire. Great property to rent. We will be back!

We had a great stay at Thomas Trail! It's a nice home and the fall colors were amazing!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay. The house is big and has lots of room for everyone...8 of us. We liked that each family had bedrooms, and there were lots of other areas to go for some time alone, if needed. The kitchen is very well stocked. The movie room was fun, although the DVD player went out while we were there. The caretaker came promptly and moved the one from the game room to the movie room so we could still use it. The TV and DVD player in the game room weren't hooked up anyway, so we didn't miss it. We appreciated the caretaker's prompt response to our call. We loved sitting on the screened in porch watching the river and nature. We saw tons of birds, some of which were new to us. We all thoroughly enjoyed watching all the deer that visited the property in the mornings. The jungle gym was great and our grandchildren had fun on it. The fire pit, the outside table, and nice surrounding benches were very nice touches and we had a great evening around the fire, roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. Our grandchildren and their Dad loved being outdoors on the property and spent lots of time there. Everywhere you sit in the house, you have a beautiful view, even in the exercise room. The owner was very nice to work with when booking the house, and was very quick to respond to all questions. The area where the house is, could not have been more convenient. There's a Dollar General, a pharmacy, Ace Hardware, and a nice little grocery store with great prices, within 10-15 minutes from the house, yet the house is in a very secluded area. Thank you for providing the fire wood for both the outdoor fire pit and for the indoor fireplace. We appreciated having it, and enjoyed the fireplace very much. We will definitely come back to this property, again, in the future.

That said, we would have liked having a TV and DVD player upstairs in the living room. The TV there didn't work and there was no DVD player. The carpets needed to be cleaned. The dishwasher wasn't working right either, with some of the operating buttons coming completely off when they were pushed normally, and the door being very finicky about opening. We didn't want to be charged for it totally breaking, so we decided not to use it and did the dishes by hand for the whole week. In our opinion, a new dishwasher that works properly and easily, would be a very good investment for the home, especially for what we paid to rent. For these reasons we give it 4 stars instead of 5.
