“wonderful” We loved Kathleens Crossing. The home is spacious and has wonderful acoustics. Loved the theatre and pool room. Our only disappointment was the size of the pool. The online picture is deceiving.
“The most fun and interesting weekend!!!” The house was beautiful and the kitchen was huge and made a great setting for me and my friends to sit around cook and have great conversation! The pool was small but just big enough for us to have a ball!!! The alarm on the pool door kinda dampered the weekend since we didn't have any kids with us...but it is a great idea for families with kids!!!
“The place was amazing, check in was the worst.” The place was great. It had everything and more yet kept a great home like feel. Would love to come back in summer. Far from slopes so better suited for summer fun. Check in with Railey was the worst experience of our vacation. We went to early check in as to miss lines and were told to come back for express check in at 4:00. We hung around for two hours wasting time, and then waited 1/2 hour in express line?! There was a leak at the property that we called in as soon as we entered the property, but no one came out to fix it. I called again about the trash on check out and they said that no one ever called?! So the house was a great experience, but Railey was horrible. Hopefully they didn't wait to long and cause serious damage to the property. We didn't use the two bathrooms above it, which sucked, but it was still leaking.
“A great place for a Family Vacation..” This was more than we could have hoped for! The kids (and grownups) had so many things to do... From swimming in the indoor pool, boating, roasting marshmallows and making mountain pies... it was a blast!!!
“Fullfilling for all ages!” The house and location was great!! My husband is demanding we stay in the same area due to the Par 3 golf course and fishing. The one thing that we did miss is not haveing a pool and on our next trip we will be looking for a house that has one. We are hopeing to bring more of the family next time and if so that will make is easier to afford one of the houses in this area with a pool.
“Peaceful,relaxing, great family time.” Spacious rooms, nice bed sizes, unpaved roads leading to property were OK as we had 4 wheel drive vehicles. Great deck and 2 BBQ grills came in handy. Secluded location offers great privacy but restaurants and grocery stores were a decent drive away.
“It really did exceed all of our expectations!!!” We use the Thanksgiving holiday as our annual girls retreat. This year there were 12 of us. This home had plenty of space and amenities for all. We were able to spread out and really enjoy ourselves. The pool and hot tub were great escapes after hiking the nearby trails.
“Relaxing!” Our family enjoyed the beautiful home we stayed in and the lovely lake and surronding area. The people that helped us to secure this reservation and those that checked us in and out, were wonderful.
“An Escape in the Wilderness” This retreat was absolutely breathtaking. It had all the amenities we had hoped for, and was very spacious and clean - not to mention the excellent price! This vacation spot is fantastic for a getaway with family and or friends, with plenty of activities close by to offer. The owner was very accommodating and did not hesitate to help with any inquiries we had. We had a wonderful and memorable time, and greatly thank John and his wife for allowing us to stay at the White Oak Retreat! We highly recommend this retreat to future vacationers - they will be blown away!
“Wedding Weekend” We had 7 couples stay in this house. The loft area pull out bed needs to be replaced. The springs were broken and they brought us cots which were worse. In the end, they did refund that couples money with no hassle.
“A great place to get away with extended family.” Our family consists of grandparents, single and married adult children,and 4 teenagers. This is the fourth year we have rented Howard's End, and we love it. We all look forward to our Fall weekend there each year.
