Home in much need of improvement and pest control

  • 2 of 5

Lovely home,however,needs many improvements/updates. Overrun with ants in the yard and on the boat dock as well as roaches in the house. Beautiful dock and hammock that we did enjoy. It would have been nice to have a heads up that the house is situated directly next door to a construction site.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your input. We welcome useful feedback, and strive for comfort for our guests. For ants on the dock, there is nothing that can be done since insecticides are strictly prohibited on the water. The environment is subject to the vagaries of weather and seasonal changes. The house and crawl space is treated, there are no colonies of roaches in the house. My neighbors are adding on to their house, they will be finished in a few weeks, this is not an all day, everyday project, it is the owner working when he comes home after work for a few hours in the evening and during the weekend. It is our hope that you will enjoy the lake and all it has to offer, our mid century home is nicely situated for optimal water use, fishing, and boating. It is in the first area to be built after the Lewis Smith Lake was formed from the Sipsey River. The house across the creek is the first house to be built on the lake. We are within day trip area for Huntsville's space museums, and all that Birmingham and Jasper have to offer, we are within minutes of Bankhead Forest.

Great Lake House

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 4 nights at Holly View, late August 2017. We had a very nice stay here. Everything was very clean and the beds were all comfortable. The house had a nice sun room and outside patio with views of the lake. The dock was amazing for sitting on and swimming from. The only reason I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 was that the dock slips are very narrow and most boats will not fit in the slips. But the sitting area on the dock was huge, covered and very nice. We tied our boat on the outside by the sitting area. The water is deep and clear. The location is a great central location for exploring the lake. Although the house is an older home, it was very comfortable for us and we very much appreciated being able to bring our dogs with us. Thank you!

Beautiful View

  • 4 of 5

The view was magnificent. I had a little trouble finding the house. The house was clean and inviting. Furnishing was from. Generation past which added to the charm of the home. The home was stocked with everything one could need. Really enjoyed sitting on the boat dock. The owners were really great. Only one problem- could not get the gas grill to work. Only one burner lit. I would recommend this home if you want a quiet and peaceful place to get away.

Wonderful Lake Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This charming house on the lake has everything you need. Beautiful views, quiet relaxing atmosphere, easy lake access for swimming & boating. Close to grocery stores & marina and the owners were quick to respond to any questions. Our family (in laws to teens to baby, even dogs) had a wonderful Labor Day weekend tubing, swimming, grilling & playing.
