Absolutely adored the house!

  • 5 of 5

We just had a nice long relaxing weekend stay at Travelers Retreat, and absolutely loved it! not only is the home exactly what we would want if we were to have our own lake house, the property is perfect as well. The lake frontage, dock, ad fenced in back yard made the stay complete. The home was comfortable for us and our toddler son. We had so much fund - despite it raining the majority of our stay - the beauty of the view and comfort of the home were not diminished!

Kevin was also great to work with and so responsive!

We plan to return next year for a longer visit.

Wonderful family friendly lake house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful thanksgiving me at this lake house. It had all the amenities a family could want on a lake vacation. The fenced-in yard, over-sized dock, screened porch, and plenty of great beds were perfect for my family of 6 plus grandma. The kayaks were a huge hit with the kids. Thanks Kevin. We'll be back.

Cozy, comfortable, lovely, and fully equipped. Our dog loved the backyard and access to the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Kevin, the property owner, was a delight to work with. It was evident from the beginning that he sincerely cared about us having a good visit at his property. There is easy access to several grocery stores and it was a relatively short drive into Davidson.

Wonderful home exceeds expectations

  • 5 of 5

The pictures, which are nice, don't do "Traveler's Retreat" justice. Lovely, clean, spacious home with perfect yard, dock, and water access for the family (two and four legged). Nicely furnished, and adequately outfitted kitchen. Thought 1 bathroom would be a problem-but not an issue. Beautiful, peaceful views and great privacy. Will definitely return.
