“Grammy Camp”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2016

We had a wonderful time staying in this cabin with our grandchildren for our annual Grammy Camp! The house was clean and beautiful. We enjoyed watching the deer, especially all the little fawns! The children especially loved going to the activity center to play games, putt-putt, etc., and the pool was beautiful and refreshing! The kitchen was very well stocked, and we had everything we needed to prepare our meals. This was a great vacation spot, and we loved it!

“Very nice”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2015

We stayed in the Pridemore's cabin for 3 nights this past weekend and enjoyed our time there. Fully furnished and equipped and a great location. Lots of various activities for the kids at HLR. Some of our best times was just sitting under the ceiling fans on the front porch and watching the deer and raccoons go by.

“Relaxing Get Away”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2015

We loved staying here. This wonderful cabin provided a quiet and relaxing get away. The cabin was big enough for our family reunion. The cabin was very clean and well stocked with towels, sheets, cooking utensils and coffee makers. It provided everything that we needed. My favorite part was the front porch with the glider. I loved sitting among the pine trees. My husband and son-in-laws loved fishing in the lake while the grandkids enjoyed swimming in the pool. We all had a wonderful time and we can't wait to go back.

Owner's reply: Katie...hope you all come back!!

“Best Stay Ever”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2015

We had a wonderful, restful and peaceful stay at this cabin. It was roomy and easily accommodated the seven of us. Everything in it functioned properly. We were very pleased with that. We stayed Thursday to Sunday and wish we could have had longer to stay. Each morning we were greeted by deer grazing around the cabin. Our grandson was ecstatic! We loved it too. We will definitely return to this cabin, most likely in the fall. Thanks for such a great stay and for the comfort and convenience provided. Betty

Owner's reply: all are welcome any time!!

“Great Stay”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2015

We came to Hawkins to attend our Grandson's wedding. A relative suggested that we stay at Holly Lake in your cabin. We stayed from Thursday to Sunday and really enjoyed the stay. It was quiet and peaceful. We were cool and comfortable with plenty of room for the seven of us who stayed. Everything was provided in the cabin, towels aplenty, etc. Plus all of the appliances were of great quality and functioned properly. We are so glad we took the relative's advice! Each morning we were greeted by deer grazing in the yard, front and back! Our grandson was ecstatic! It was a wonderful experience and we will be back. The cabin was great and we loved the town. Thank you so much for a great stay. Betty

Owner's reply: Thanks again and hope you all come back soon..

“Great Thanksgiving!”

Reviewed 1 Dec 2014

Our vacation was perfect from the very beginning. We had easy directions to locate and enter our cabin which was clean and well equipped for a family vacation. Our daughter's family joined us for the stay, and all 7 of us were comfortable and relaxed. The furnishings were comfortable and attractive and the setting was perfect. All of the amenities were available to us with no bother. We spent 5 great days and enjoyed every minute. We also saw more deer than we could count!

My daughter and I want to thank you for renting us your home. She and I had a great time. We hiked the waterfall trail and I taught her how to cast a rod and reel. We really enjoyed our Valentine's weekend. We also saw eleven deer while we were here, not at the cabin, while we were driving around. Savannah loved it. Thanks again.

Linda and Mike,

My husband and I had a very pleasant and relaxing stay in your cabin. While looking for a retirement "home", we were able to come back each night to a warm, cozy atmosphere. This must reflect on what kind of people you are which makes us want to retire at Holly Lake. Everyone we met in your community were incredibly friendly. We look forward to coming back.

Dear Linda & Mike,
Thank you so much for making your charming cabin in the woods available to us. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and especially appreciate how clean and cozy your cabin is. After long days of running about settling details of the place we are building at Holly Lake, it was so nice to walk in the front door of 465 Wildwood and relax.
We hope it is available when we need to return to check on our building progress.

Dear Pridemores,

Your cabin allowed us to be together much more as a family as we prepared and participated in our son's wedding.

The grandbabies were able to nap and play. We enjoyed fixing our own meals when we came "home". None of which would have happended with the family spread out in 3 motel rooms.

Beting able to take walks, watch the deer and play miniature golf were all bonuses.

It was a truly enjoyable 5-day retreat for me and my wife and 21 month old daughter. We had a blast taking morning strolls up and down the peaceful roads. It was even more fun in the evenings with the sheer peace and quiet. My little girl got a hoot out of the numerous does that sauntered in and out of the front yard for their morning breakfasts and midday brunch. Well worth the effort to make this trip and look foward to returning in the not too distant future.

It is a treat for us to enjoy the quietness and enjoy God's creation. Mark and I especially enjoyed running therough the woods. You have a beautiful cabin and hopefully we will be back again.

I'm so glad we chose this cabin. We have had an awesome time here! After a busy day of swimming and playing coming back to the cabin and relaxing on the front porch was the highlight of the day. My kids said this was the "best vacation ever!" Watching all the deer and squirrels was so much fun for the kids. Thanks for everything - hope to be back next summer!
