We stayed at the Lighthouse at the end of July. It was very relaxing, the house was very nice and clean, had everything we needed to cook with and all the linens seem to be new. We will be going back again.

Let me start with the positives first. The resort grounds was well maintained and pretty clean. We liked and used both pools available. We rented a boat one day for a day of fun on the lake, but it was quite pricey. We looked at renting a couple of jet skis, but we felt that they were to expensive at...

Terrific time with our family at Chesnut Bay Resort. Tons to do, never felt anything was crowded. Godfathers Pizza on the premises, two pools, huge slide into the Lake, jet skis, boats, paddle boards to rent. CLEAN! SUPER FUN. If you are close to Weiss Lake this is a vacation spot you do not want to miss.

We stayed in house #32. It is a great home but it does have 3 levels and you must go up a whole flight of stairs to get to the first level. This level has 2 bedrooms and kitchen and living area. Then another level up has two more bedrooms and another living room area. Everything was great except the...

Our families met here from 3 states. We rented out the Southern Comfort Home and it exceeded our expectations! The home was beautifully decorated and the kitchen had everything we needed. The views and breezes were phenomenal. They have a wonderful street party on Friday night that the children loved and live music on Saturday at Godfather's pizza (which by...

Average, indeed. Pipes under kitchen sink leak, which we discovered while washing dishes. (a pot was already in place, so evidently management is aware of problem.). Outdoor grill is in pitiful shape. Visible cobwebs ( I wasn't LOOKING for things to complain about, they were easily seen.) Only one roll of paper towels, which was used up quickly when sopping...

As a manager we make suggestions to the home owner about how to make there home better and how important it is to the resort as a hole. This review of the home was correct however, I will say things like the paper towels are very common in home rentals to receive 1 roll and then it is up to...

We stayed at the resort last week for my son's birthday. I was expecting a great weekend. We rented a house near the pool (#11). These homes are NOT CHEAP and I had high expectations for the rental. We had a great 1st day at the resort for the most part. We swam in the lake and the slide was...
