Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our vacation. It is a great place for children to play in the yard and swim. We have two goldens that loved it. The dock is a great place to relax and the front porch has a great view of the lake. The house has everything that you will need for relaxing and cooking.

Wonderful vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay. Everything was great! Very busy cove on weekends but during the week it was so quiet and peaceful. Enjoying the dock so much, fishing and just relaxing. Sitting on the dock at night was so pleasant. Loved the porch at the house and watching the hummingbirds. Will definitely rent this place again. Had everything we needed and then some.

Great house, great weekend

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about our dealings with Veda. She was a gem to work with. Prompt with her replies to our questions, prompt getting the key to us, and just a good communicator. The house was clean, had plenty of cooking utensils and dishes, beds were comfortable, there was ample seating for people for meals and overall, the place was perfect for us - more than enough space for 4 people and 2 Labs. We are very familiar with the lake and liked the central location of the property on the lake and the calm cove it is on. It was very close to a previous home we had in our family for many years. Hummingbird Haven did not disappoint us in any way. There was plenty of space to relax inside or out on the deck or the pier. It was wonderful that a boat lift was provided for renters and that the very close neighborhood boat ramp was available. We had sunny, beautiful days throughout the weekend, but then on the day we were leaving, it rained very hard for hours. Having that boat ramp so close was so helpful since we did not have to ride all the way to the marina in the pouring rain to load the boat onto the trailer. Even on that very rainy day, the hummingbirds came to feed at the feeders on the porch every few minutes. They were fun to watch. Our family always enjoys the warm LKG water and the recreation the lake provides. Our 2 Labs had a blast retrieving their toys from the lake and swam to exhaustion. Again, a wonderful thing that Veda and Michael make their home dog friendly. It is a perfect place to bring your pooch if you have one and the basement is the ideal place for them to dry off and chill out. We brought our dogs' crates for the basement and they were quite content. Once they were dry, we felt comfortable letting them come upstairs. The ping pong table and pool table were also a big hit with our family and provided late night fun. The entire rental experience was a positive one for our family and we highly recommend Hummingbird Haven. Thank you Veda and Michael.

Great Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Started talking to Veda late Feb. She answered every email in a timely fashion. It was hard to find a house that's pet friendly and have a area for a child to play. Well we found the perfect one. The house has woods bordering both sides and it makes a great barrier for your dog. Water is in the 5ft range at the end of the dock and drops quickly from there. Very nice dock and boat house. Boat ramp is only 3 boat houses down. We actually tubed in the creek. Plenty of room. House is very clean and comfortable. We had 6 adults and a 3 year old for most of the week and then 8 adults with the child for two days and had plenty of room. Very nice basement with ping pong and pool table. We caught countless perch, bream and catfish off of dock. As well as great success for bass in the rest of the creek. Last but not least. I fully understand why they call it Hummingbird Haven. They are everywhere around the house!!!

Great House!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Hummingbird Haven for 7 nights and we had a total of 8 people in our family! It was perfect for 8. We had plenty of beds and plenty of room. The house is nice and clean. The property was clean and well-maintained. Very private backyard with a great dock and boat house. We loved the fire pit and made smores practically every night. We only went out to eat one night at the Tiki Hut and the food was good. Food Lion grocery store is only 15 minutes away along with the ABC store. Pay Jay's is a little convenient store about 10 minutes away. It was a great place for bait and little odds and ends. The house had plenty of games and movies which the kids loved. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever taken. We went out on our boat every day and my husband and kids enjoyed fishing off the dock. The kids had a great time playing in the water as well. The water was shallow and it was like having our own private little lake. I would definitley recommend hummingbird Haven to a friend.

Hummingbird Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

While it could sleep nine, we really didn't need that much capacity. This year we had four adults; last year we had six adults. It was plenty of room. And there is a big basement with a ping pong table and pool table. The ping pong table got play time but we never had time, or the energy after a day on the lake, to get around to the pool table. Just nice to know that if it had rained we would have had a backup plan. Speaking of rain, it did rain at least once each trip. At night. Excellent timing. We had a nearby ramp to put the boat in, the dock has an open slip with a lift for guest boats (nice for the rain and for when folks come down on fast boats/jetskis making waves). Never took it out of the water the whole week. Got more boating in a week than we do taking it to the river the rest of the summer. This is why we were there.

There are fences in the thick treed spaces between this house and the two neighbors so we could safely take the dog out to play off-leash in the lot between the house and the lake. All there got lots of fresh air and exercise. And laughter to keep you going for weeks!

The bathrooms have been remodeled and are VERY clean and comfortable. Bedrooms and all other areas have ceiling fans. Wonderful porch/deck overlooking the water. You could just chill and hear the hummingbirds before they made it to the feeders.

Didn't like the 20 min drive the nearest grocery store (or the extremely limited selection) but if you pack plenty of water, ice and food in the first trip, you might be able to get by with just one more trip. Veda keeps some supplies there. You won't walk in and not have so much as a paper napkin to use to dry your hands. I make sure to leave some of our paper goods when we go to pass it on.

Only took 288 photos and video clips this year! Hope you have a memorable time, too!
