-October 2020 While we were only there an extended weekend, we wished we could have stayed longer! The home is beautiful and accommodated our small group well. The bedrooms and common spaces are very comfortable as well! We enjoyed hiking in the State park one day, renting a pontoon boat the next day and enjoyed nightly campfires! Would definitely like to come back! -September 2020 The house is beautiful. Thank you for making our stay fabulous. -September 2020 We’ve rented a few houses and this one did not disappoint. Tucked away with a good view of the lake. Well kept, clean, comfy furniture and beds. Very nice and well supplied kitchen. Would happily rent this house again. -September 2020 We absolutely loved this property and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The kitchen was well stocked and most items were just as listed. Our only complaint was it was listed with a fireplace and there is a beautiful one. However, there are no instructions on how to use it. Other than that, we loved it. -August 2020 We had a lovely stay. It was nicely decorated. Furniture was great and it was very clean. -July 2020 Thank you for sharing your lovely home! We will definitely rent here again. Everything was just perfect! -June 2020 Thanks for sharing your home with our family - what a beautiful vacation! June 2020- Loved this house! Beds so comfy - kitchen well stocked - loved that everything matched! Fire-pit = Fun - Gas grill a plus! Such a relaxing, beautiful vacation! Games, kayaks a huge plus! June 2020- Best house we have stayed in at SML. The house was very clean and we felt right at home. The dock is very close to the neighbors so if you want complete privacy this may not be the house for you! We will definitely be back June 2020- This is a beautiful property! Comfy beds, well stocked easy to use kitchen, gas grill, fire pit, kayaks, games . . . All made for a wonderful visit. Add the lake and a rental pontoon boat that we could dock at the house made for a perfect stay. Warning: the walk to the lake is a gentle slope *mostly* . . . It is a bit of a climb close to the house so anyone with mobility issues may struggle (our almost 9 month pregnant daughter in law was huffing!). Thank you for sharing your lovely home! June 2020- This property is aptly named! This is a best kept secret for sure, I hardly want to tell anyone. Every single aspect of this home is gorgeous, well maintained, gorgeous views, perfect spot on the lake, dinner on the screened porch, and so much more! Perfect home for our family vacation. October 2019- You will absolutely love this house! Extremely clean property. Very well maintained. Accurate description on the website. Detailed notebook about the property and surrounding area was a nice bonus that was filled with valuable information. Beautiful appliances. Driveway was narrow to back a boat down to the property. It can be done if you are experienced at towing a boat. Comfortable beds. Nice touch to have rugs/bath mats in all the bathrooms as well as some toilet paper and a few paper towels and napkins. We would absolutely rent this property again. It is well worth the money. September 2019- 2nd visit even better than the 1st! This was our second time staying at this amazing property and it was even better than the first! I loved the addition of the kayaks! This was a last-minute trip because I had some head-down work I needed to get done away from the city (Raleigh) as well as some much needed R&R in between. About 20 minutes away from the house it was as though I could feel the tension releasing from my shoulders. Upon pulling in and seeing the deer in the front of the house, I had to remind myself I was there to work :) This home is the epitome of calm, not only was I able to complete my project for work, my 15, 17, and 19 year old came up for the day Sunday and we enjoyed an amazing day on the lake, lunch on the patio, and dinner before they headed back home. This is the latest time in the season we've visited SML but it may now be one of my favorite times! We rented a boat from Bridgewater Marina and spent the day on the lake and it was much more calm than in the high-season. Thank you Best Kept Secret for accommodating this last minute request and making this trip possible with all of 12 hours notice. See you soon! September 2019- This was a stunning home! I loved the fact that we didn’t have to walk down a steep hill or back up to get to the lake.. August 2019- Great Week This is a great place to stay. Nice amenities and nice dock. Plenty of room for everyone. The screened in porch is sealed very well and we didn't have any bugs. The location is not to far from stores and restaurants. Very nice wide water for playing. We would definitely recommend staying at "The Best Kept Secret". August 2019- Unbelievable find We loved everything about this property. Great central location in a quiet cove. House was clean and inviting. We enjoyed two camp fires, the screened in porch, ping pong table and kayaks. A SML vacation is always great but this home raises the bar quite a bit. Thank you July 2019- Property was more than pictures described. Easy check in and the house was immaculately clean. Beds were very comfortable and the house was well stocked. We cooked every night and did not have issue with finding necessary tools. Renting a boat is a must but swimming in the cove was great with minimal wake. Only suggestion would be tables on the top deck next to chairs and furniture on bottom deck but all in all it was a great experience. My family and I rent a lot of houses and this one has easily surpassed others with the ease of check-in, cleanliness and overall property. Looking forward to renting it next year! July 2019- Didn't want to leave! The house was perfect. Clean and in almost new condition. My first thought upon arrival was that the pictures don’t do it justice. It is bigger than it appears. High ceilings in basement make it bright and spacious. We are ready to return! June 2019- The pictures do not do this property justice. It is very nice and spacious, well-kept and modern. The kitchen is well equipped with updated appliances. You won't be disappointed!
