“Family Getaway”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2016

This was such a beautiful house. We had 2 families and it was perfect with the space. All the supplies you would need the owners provided. We all had a wonderful time we went white water rafting, hiking, shopping, and lots of fishing and swimming. We would all definitely come back again. Thank you again for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Owner's reply: Misty, glad you had a great family. Thanks for leaving the cabin so clean. Come back again for your returning-guest discount. Mike & Joan owners

We stayed in this lovely home over the memorial day weekend!! It was 8 people in our party & let me tell this place is wonderful!! The bedrooms were so large & 5 bathrooms was great!! It was so neat & clean we didn't want to leave. The view was spectacular!!! It was a great place to make family memories. It you are looking for a place to get away from it all I highly recommend this place. The owners were wonderful to work with as well.

“Treat Yourself!”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2015

This home is not only beautiful and totally stocked for visitors, but the way it is built with certain top of the line touches will certainly be a treat for anyone staying there. It's perfect for a family get-together because it has basically 3 master bedrooms and plenty of room downstairs for the kids. It has sitting areas and a large dining room table and a huge kitchen and therefore lends itself to family times. There are games and movies and a beautiful fireplace. The wrap-around deck has plenty of chairs and rockers and a table and bird feeders to enjoy. I could go on and on. It is lovely and I would HIGHLY recommend it . So treat yourself! You will not regret it.

Owner's reply: Lynn, Thanks for the kind comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our mountain paradise, See you next year, maybe. Michael Holliday

“This house has it all!”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2014

Every Fall, our family gets together to enjoy the beauty of the Smokey Mts. We are a family of 10 people. That includes 4 Grandsons, and 2 dogs. This is the most perfect house we have ever rented! It is absolutely beautiful! And the property is just as beautiful! This house has everything! We cook a lot, and there was everything we could possibly need. The bedrooms are huge, each with a King bed. They are very comfortable! The game room has 3 beds for kids, and a room next to it with a bunk bed. Our 13 year old got his own room this year! The wrap around porch was wonderful! The view could not have been better! This house is very secluded. Joan decorated it for Fall. Very fun!! We are from Ohio and very much about the Buckeyes! The Hollidays are too! Lots of OSU things around. My husband loved it! This house could be in a magazine. It is that beautiful! The price to rent it, for all that you get, is very low! Our family decided that this is our rental every year! No more searching for the perfect house! The owners love dogs, and were nice enough to allow our 2 dogs. No extra pet fee! Do not hesitate to rent this house! You will love it!! By the way, it was spotless!!

Owner's reply: Thanks you Linda for the kind words. We're glad that you had a wonderful time at Tree Tops. You definitely picked the right time because the trees were gorgeous! We hope you and your family will be able to return soon and enjoy another relaxing visit.

Beautiful, well appointed home, well worth the long drive up to its location from the main road. Home is secluded and offers a nice level of privacy. Found rental rate to be reasonably priced for what you get in return. Rent with confidence, we thoroughly enjoyed this home and location and will definitely rent here again.

I wanted to tell you that we had a WONDERFUL TIME!! The home is Beautiful and was perfect for our family. The Kids, In-Laws, Grandkids, my Wife and I, and the Dog all had room to roam and felt right at home. We had 8 of us and could have easily accomidated 4-5 more. We enjoyed Hiking, Waterfalls, the hot tub, the firepit, the wireless internet, and even took the kids mining and horseback riding. On a side note my Mother passed away about 10 years ago and her favorite bird was a cardinal. I don't know how we didn't see it in the pictures but when we walked in our eyes all watered when we saw the Beautiful Fireplace. I have rented homes all over the place and this was as nicely set up as any I've ever stayed at. The Kitchen was awesome and had everything you could need, even the washer and dryer were a plus. We felt very comfortable and "At home" as soon as we walked in and would recommend this place to anyone interested in a mountain getaway! Thanks again for a WONDERFUL TIME!

Owner's reply: David, were are happy you enjoyed your visit and hope you come back again. Mike & Joan

We had a wonderful vacation at Tree Tops! The cabin has everything you could possibly need (and more) and you really only need to bring your toothbrush and clothes. The dogs enjoyed the wrap around porch with the gate to keep them safe and the adults enjoyed the hot tub and outside fire pit. The cabin has wonderful views from all rooms that allowed us to enjoy the snow (my first snow fall!) while staying warm inside. I got our car stuck on one of the 'hills' when we first arrived (driver's error-lesson learned) and one of the neighbors was nice enough to stay and chat with us until a tractor arrived to help. We cannot wait to return to Tree Tops for another relaxing vacation.

Owner's reply: Amber, we are so happy you had a great time. We look forward to having you back soon! Mike & Joan Holliday, owners.

“Wonderful Vacation Home”

What a great place for a vacation. We spent the week of Thanksgiving there and it was so nice. The house is beautiful and the owners so gracious. Everything was provided and the house was decorated for Christmas. Definitely would like to stay there again. The Robinsons

“Precious Moments”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2012

So rare are the times your family can all come together in one place and make precious memories to last a lifetime....memories made even more special with the property's many amenities, spaciousness and genuine hospitality from the owner. A big 'THUMBS UP' from our family. We all enjoyed our time there! Ages two through sixty-two.

“Wonderful retreat”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2012

We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday while we were there and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect place. The wrap around deck was a perfect place for the children to play, there was plenty of room to accommodate all of us. The kitchen was stocked, and paper products were plenty. I will definitely come back.
