We had a great weekend! Our
group consisted of three couples from Kentucky and one couple from Raleigh, North Carolina. (Three brothers, one
sister and their spouses.) We were together to celebrate the retirement of one of our group....quite a
milestone! As soon as we walked into your home, I knew we had made the right choice! Everything was just
perfect. We spent our evenings on the deck, and our mornings around the dining room table. It was important to
us to be able to just visit and enjoy being together, and there was plenty of space for us to do that! The house
was so well equipped, and we thank you for that. We didn't have to go to the grocery for a thing!! We spent the
day at the Biltmore House and visited the Grove Park Inn in Asheville. We explored Hendersonville and ate at a
little Mexican Restaurant, Papa Beers, that was excellent! We had high hopes of fine dining while we were there,
but once we all collapsed on the deck at the end of our day, no one wanted to leave! Thanks again for
everything, we hope to return some day.

Five of my sisters and our
spouses were guests in White Stone Lake Manor for one week for a family reunion. It was delightful, with every
need anticipated and provided for with quality items and equipment. We loved the great linens, the many TVS,
including the large screen in the lower level. We especially liked the fact that everyone could find a little
quiet place for rest, when they needed. Everyone enjoyed the lake, the fish, the heron, and the other wildlife).
We loved the area, explored and visited, and just didn't get around to enjoy the hot tub (maybe next time). The
kitchen was wonderful for six cooks, and it was important for all of us to eat together at one table (we had to
crowd in a little). Thanks for making it available. We will come again, next time with our own grown
-The Collins Family, Union,
What a wonderful vacation home!
We had a terrific time. Nothing here is lacking. Everything you'd need in the kitchen and for children is right
at hand. Can't wait to return!
-Jason and Hayley, Montgomery,
We had a wonderful time, The
home was very close to all of the sights we wanted to see in the area. Your home was very clean & spacious.
We ate out every evening meal & didn't use those facilities but just for breakfast. thank you so
-The Wheelers, Brentwood,
This is a yearly outing for the
family and friends of the family. We had all ages from little children (the play room was a big hit)to us older
people. The home was very comfortable and spacious. Perfect location for shopping and the mountains for hiking.
We will be back. Thanks you again for a wonderful stay.
-Van Goodgames, Houston, TX
We really enjoyed our stay
at the White Stone Lake Manor. The owners really did think of everything. We really didn't need to bring
anything but our clothes. There were 4 adults and 2 children and we have tons of room. I am telling all my
friends to stay here on their next vacation.
White Stone Manor was
wonderful. We had 7 adults and 3 children -- myself and my husband, my son and his wife and 1 year old daughter
and well-behaved Sheba-Inu, Sasha, my daughter, her husband, mother-in-law, and 2 girls (3 and 7 months). There
was enough space that everyone could retreat to their own quiet or be out with the crowd. The little girls fell
in love with the playroom and it was so nice not to have to cart a lot of toys and books along for them. The 3
year old couldn't get enough of "the tower" as she called it -- a glorious playset -- her tire swing was the
best and she loves to climb. Of course we also fed the fish cheerios each night and counted frogs. Our last
night was the Opening Ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics and they were spectacular on the big screen! This was
especially fun as my son-in-law and his mom are from NE China.
-Kathy, Malvern PA
We all had a wonderful time
and ya'll covered every age group. we all kept saying " do you believe this!" It was great, thank you. the beds
are sooooo comfortable!!
The reason for staying at your
lovely home was our mother's 80th birthday/family reunion. As the party organizer I was especially anxious that
everything be just right. White Stone Manor exceeded all of our expectations! I would recommend it as a place to
stay for large groups who want to stay together but who need to have room for alone time as well. Thank you
Robert and Stephanie for helping to make this event one that our families from CA, FL and LA will never
-The Louper Family, CA, FL, LA
We had a wonderful time, and
the house worked out beautifully for our group, which included six children, all ages three and under. We were
really impressed with how well-stocked the house was with things such as lawn chairs, small kitchen appliances,
dinnerware...the list goes on. It's easy to see that a lot of thought is given to these details. Everything was
clearly labeled and easy to find. We appreciated how clean the house was when we arrived. The layout was also
great and allowed for each of our four families to have it's own space. And the bedding and mattresses were to
die for! We were only a couple of short miles from a first class grocery store as well, which was really
helpful. Hendersonville is a great little town with a very walkable downtown. And Asheville was an easy trip
too. Our group highly recommends this house!
-Beth, Houston, TX
We had a wonderful family
reunion at White Stone Lake Manor. The house was well equipped and easily accommodated the 12 of us.
Hendersonville is a lovely town with plenty of good restaurants and cafes and the Smokey mountains were
-Ian, Rainham, England
We are in love with your
wonderful home! The White Stone Lake Manor is far beyond our expectations! We knew it would be quite nice, but
had no idea how spectacular it really is! We are so impressed with all the attention to detail and the
incredible thought that has gone into making this the best vacation home our family has ever visited! It is
elegant, comfortable, lush & soft bedding, beautiful artwork and lamps, elegant bath rooms, kitchens have
absolutely everything we need. I want to hire you as my interior decorator!
I adore that you thought of all age groups! The young ones were thrilled with the playhouse and all the toys. Our
teens got right into playing Foosball and video games. The rest of us were mesmerized by the big screen HDTV
(wow!), the really amazing hot tub, not to mention the massage chair! I appreciate all the various conversation
areas throughout the home where we could have private relaxed time to get caught up on the year’s events. Like I
said, you thought of all our needs and then some!
You created a great outdoor area with all the decks, picnic tables and walk area around the pond. The kids spent
hours outside enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. I just can’t truly express how grateful our family is to have
found such an amazing home to spend our family reunion! We’ve been to many places over the years and this surpasses
any home or 5 star hotel we’ve ever visited! We’ll definitely be back! Thank you so much for all you've done!
-Wilson Family & McGraw Family: NJ, SC, LA,
We are 4 generations who vacationed at your fabulous home! There was ample room for all four
couples and our kids (ages 1 to 12 years) who were never bored the entire week! They loved the playroom, the hot
tub, the pond, the softy blankets, the toys/games and the foosball table. The grown up kids (the men!) loved the
BIG screen TV and the video games!
Everything we needed, you had thoughtfully provided. The home went way beyond our expectations of quality and
amenities. Thank you being such kind and generous hosts.
Here’s what I loved:
The massage chair
The extremely comfortable beds (you definitely splurged on quality!)
The sound proofing between the floors!
The high chair, playpen & stroller for the baby
The high tech front loading washer & dryer (wow – double the capacity of mine at home….I’m getting one for
We will definitely be back for our next family reunion. The location is ideal to get to all the sights and
activities of the area. Thanks for the directions and local information.
- Fox Family, TX
We all really enjoyed our
week in your home. It was so well furnished and really comfortable for everyone. We were a large group from ages
one to75 and it was roomy enough for all of us. Your response to any problems was quick and efficient. The
scenery was great and the children enjoyed the pond and wildlife. We will be happy to refer White Stone Lake
Manor to others.
-The Sealy Clan, MI &
We had such a wonderful time in
your well furnished, well supplied home. We enjoyed watching all the wild life, especially the muskrats building
their nests. This was a family vacation with one daughter who lives in London, England and one who lives in
Massachusetts, and as we live in Florida, this was a great reunion.
We especially enjoyed our trips
to Asheville and the Biltmore House. In fact, we purchased a CD as a thank you to you both and for enjoyment for
your future guests. It is the Dinner with Friends Album from the Biltmore House. Thank you for a wonderful time.
We wish you both the best!
-The Locketts: FL, MA, London, England
Dear Stephanie &
Wow! What a wonderful
vacation home! You made it so nice & comfortable for all of us. We loved walking around the pond &
watching the wild life. It was so serene. We enjoyed grilling two meals and really appreciated the well
appointed kitchen. Many laughs were had in the hot tub! It was very relaxing! Thank
P.S. We’re 6 grade
school/high school friends who are having our second reunion after 45 years. We are so happy we chose your
