We stayed for 4 nights over Thanksgiving and had a great trip! The view of the lake and surrounding mountain scape is truly breathtaking. The house is very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. We did have an issue with the heat not coming on when we arrived (night before Thanksgiving), but the sweet owner came over late and got it running! My one suggestion would be a welcome book containing things to know (ie...where to find the WiFi router, wall switch needed to run dishwasher, and a warning about the SUPER hot water). The boathouse is very cool and would be awesome in the summertime.
Really had a great time in Saluda. Accommodations were good. It felt like we were staying at a relatives house. Like an Aunt or Uncle's. Everything you need is there. Great view plus the boathouse which is where we spent most of the time when we didn't venture out. The 4th bedroom down stairs is separate from the main living area so I would say it's better for a couple or older kid. My kids are younger and wanted to be in the main living area which has plenty of room for my family of 5. We hiked to Big Bradley falls (not recommended..terrifying) and to Little Bradley Falls (highly recommended...very beautiful...left side of the road from Saluda) also kayaked down the Green River
Gorge (awesome..super fun). The BEST part of the trip was Mr Smith taking us on a boat ride around the lake giving us the history of the lake and a who's who. We did not meet a stranger in this town. Super friendly.
We had the vacation of a lifetime! Lake Summit is like any other and we sure enjoyed staying on 2 Goat Road! The Smiths and Guerrys were very accommodating and even allowed us to bring our dogs with us. The house offers the best view on the lake in addition to comfortable furnishings and just about anything you may need during your stay! Added bonus: the boathouse down on the actual lake. We never left! We swam and played on the lake all day and we cooked dinner there each night, as it is nicely equipped with refrigerators, stoves, a grill and even a potty! We have already booked our trip for next summer and are counting down the days! Five stars!!!
The house is not huge,but not small. Really makes up for it in comfort, and views. Has nice furnishings. Plenty of parking at house and boathouse. Boathouse is huge! Hung out there the whole visit, couldn't leave. House is up on top of the mountain. So it has privacy. Great place for kids and dogs. Very functional kitchen. Nice beds upstairs. One is enormous! Has to be bigger than a king. Cant say enough about my stay. We will be back. Loved it..
