Totally awesome! Everything you would want or desire in a vacation property! Great views of the lake, very spacious, beautifully furnished, very clean, and super comfortable! Our family had a wonderful time here! Thank you very much!

Can’t wait to return to the “Wake house”! Quiet, relaxing, plenty of places to just sit and enjoy the view, or get into a good book.

While this home can accommodate a large group (perfect for a couples, an extended family, or even ladies retreat) it doesn’t feel like you are removed from anyone, very homey and comfortable.

The beds were so comfortable, i slept wonderfully and woke up refreshed!

The kitchen is fully equipped and plenty of dining space. Large open deck as well as a screened in porch is always my favorite spot!

The entire area has such beautiful scenery and local restaurants are great. Definitely a treat.

Will not disappoint!!!

This house was the perfect place for my team’s retreat! We enjoyed the outdoor space, cooking in the well-appointed kitchen, and accomplishing our goals of a relaxed planning time. What a great experience! Our team was able to refresh and renew as we enjoyed the gorgeous views, slept well in the comfy beds, played games, and lounged in the living area. It was everything we hoped it would be. It was perfect!

We have a large family and found this house perfectly met our needs. Lots of super comfortable beds in private rooms. The whole house is well-appointed, beautifully decorated, and the views are magnificent. It became our home away from home and we had a blast. Cooking was a breeze and we also took advantage of nearby restaurants. I highly recommend Hurricane Marina for boat launch and their restaurant is fabulous when you’re coming off a day on the lake. Morning coffee on the porch or deck is a treat not to be missed. Just breath deep, take in the views, and have yourself a great time as we did. You’re going to love it.

We stayed at the Wake House during my breast cancer journey. My husband and I needed to get away for the weekend and reset. This was the perfect place to make that happen. The house was absolutely beautiful and was stocked with anything we would need. All we had to do was bring ourselves and our food. The house is very spacious and very clean. The balconies had incredible views of the lake where we spent time drinking coffee and I spent time doing my daily devotion. I appreciated how well they informed us with directions, details about the house and the local area. We loved it so much we hope to go back again.

I have stayed at the Wake House a couple of times and have been nothing short of impressed. The home is cozy, extremely well equipped for anything you may need down to the little details. There is plenty of room for you and your family. The beds are all comfy which can be a tough find in a rental. It is truly set up like a home. You can sit on the back deck and enjoy the beautiful views of the lake. This home is in a great neighborhood and has a fabulous pool with a pool house. We enjoyed some local restaurants also. You won’t be disappointed. Faith and Jimmy, thank you for your accommodations and hospitality.

I loved my stay at the “Wake” house. It is spacious, clean and comfortable and has a beautiful view of the lake with gorgeous sunsets. The house is well stocked and had everything we needed. It was the perfect get away place to relax. The deck and screened porch are awesome. I highly recommend it and would stay there again.

We loved our stay at this beautiful lake house, and want to go back many times. The view from the porch is beautiful and so relaxing, I could stay there all day with a book and a cup of coffee. My favorite part of the home is the many bedrooms with comfy beds. Faith and Jimmy are very good hosts.

We loved staying here! The views are amazing and we spent much time on the decks. The bedrooms are very comfortable and accommodating. The kitchen is well stocked and easy to navigate. The great room is cozy and a great place for everyone to hang out.

While we were there, we enjoyed the marinas, local restaurants and the pool. Boating is very enjoyable in Center Hill lake – the scenery is incredible. The pool was a very short walk away and quite nice.

It is shocking how much room is in this house. We definitely hope to stay there again.

Thank you, Faith and Jimmy!
