All of us had a wonderful
time thanks to your accommodations that we so thoroughly enjoyed last week. Everything in print about the house
came true and our experiences we had with each other last week was memorable due to the environment you
(it's unfortunate you do not
have homes in other parts of the country we could visit !!)
-The Foleys, Mishawaka,
We had a wonderful week at the
White Stone lake Manor. Anything you could possibly need or want was provided. We were so close to everything in
Asheville and Hendersonville, and the Blue Ridge parkway was beautiful. We had a wonderful time, the week of Aug
22. I cannot imagine what the fall must be like here in the mountains!
-The Smiths, West Wildwood,
We had a wonderful time at
the house during the Thanksgiving week. The house was well suited for the 11 of us. The children enjoyed the
playroom which was amply stocked with plenty of toys and entertaining games. The adults were able to cook and
have time to relax.
It was a great week and the house was up to the advertisement.
-The Mastrandreas, Mount
Our stay was wonderful. The
accommodations were perfect for our group of nine. We each had space and plenty of room to play in the back
yard, the hot tub, and enjoy the pond. The geese made their nest and laid eggs which made it a great time to
observe them. The house provided a peaceful retreat for our family vacation.
-Cathy, Broken Arrow, OK
We stayed at
White Stone Lake Manor for a week in November. What a great placed to invite the whole family to visit. The
house is wonderful and the area is fantastic with many activities for everyone. I would definitely recommend
this rental for large groups wanting to spend some quality time together.

"All the little details
Our family thoroughly enjoyed
our stay! They really thought of all the little details and things that truly made it feel like a home away from
home from the cozy blankets to snuggle up on the couch with to little areas to play games to marshmallow
roasting forks for the fire pit. The kitchen was so well-stocked that we ended up eating in more than we ate out
because it was that enjoyable to do so. The property was quiet, relaxing, and very peaceful. The house was a
great choice for multiple families. There were 8 active children in all and normally when we are together we
feel on top of one another and confined. This was not the case at all with this property. The kids were all
thrilled with the bunk room and the play room as well as the big TVs and play area outside. It was beautifully
decorated and very clean and well-kept. It was very convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, a quaint downtown
area, and local hiking, fishing, shopping, and other fun spots.
- The McGlinchey family, Port
St Lucie, FL
Amazingly beautiful and comfortable home with everything for everyone! Our stay at this
home was more than wonderful! We were a party of 15 adults, 3 children under 3 yrs old and we found literally
everything we needed from sippy cups to a keyboard for our Sunday morning worship...not to mention the hot tub,
foosball, massage chair and movies for the big "kids". We cooked all our meals there and the kitchen is truly fully
equipped for large crowds. Very comfortable and lovely home that you will not want to leave.

"A fabulous place for a family
My family of thirteen adults
(mother, husband, son, daughter, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews) stayed at the White Stone Lake Manor
home for an extended weekend for a family wedding and reunion and we loved the home. It felt like a home, so
comfortably furnished and complete with everything needed (or wanted) for a luxurious experience. The very well
equipped kitchen was large enough for several cooks and helpers at the same time and the living room
accommodated us all for several evenings of music , singing and games. The bedrooms were very comfortable and
spacious . The home was large enough to give us both privacy and togetherness and we all would love to stay
there again. It's true, you will feel pampered!
- The Perrin Family,
Wonderful, relaxing mountain
vacation! We spent a wonderful week with
our extended family enjoying all the house had to offer. We ranged in age from 2 - 65, and there was something for
everyone. The kids loved playing in the backyard, spotting the koi fish in the pond, and having s'mores around the
fire. The huge back deck with plenty of seating was very relaxing, especially in the evenings.The home had way more
than enough space for our group of 9, so we were really able to spread out & have our privacy when needed. The
kids rooms downstairs were absolutely magical for the kids. I really loved & appreciated the extremely
well-stocked kitchen. It had everything you'd ever need - much better stocked than even my own kitchen & I'm a
gourmet cook! Upon our return home, we discovered my youngest daughter had left behind her beloved stuffed kitten.
When I contacted the owner, she found the cat & even mailed it to me! I can't say enough about the terrific
property - it really far exceeded what we expected!
- The Hammond Family, Kennesaw, GA
Beyond Outstanding Amenities!
The house was beautiful! There
were so many comfy areas to hang out that even with 16 people it never felt crowded. The kids loved the dorm
style bunk room. There was plenty of seating in two living rooms. The beds were exceptionally comfortable. From
bbq to bread mixer to electric frying pan and pancake grill to hot tub to foosball table to great deck and lawn,
we used and enjoyed it all. It is hard to imagine anyone being disappointed with this home. Stephanie and Robert
couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.
- The Ross Family, Marysville,
I researched quite a bit to
find something that our varied group would all like. The pictures and description on the website were detailed
and beautifully done, but couldn't begin to fully prepare us for the fabulous experience. I think it is the
quality of every detail of the house that is remarkable, particularly in terms of luxurious comfort. But even
more amazing is that whatever pops into your mind to look for (and our group included my 85 year old mother, my
husband and friends in their 60's and their children in their 30's down to grandchildren 3 and 6) you will find
somewhere in the house. An amazing amount of thought went into providing a perfect atmosphere for a relaxed,
wonderful vacation experience.
I came home and immediately went on line to look at other rental properties that Stephanie manages because we want
to go back and can't imagine renting from anyone else.

"It felt more like staying in
the home of a friend than a rental "
When we arrived late from our
travels we were just blown away by how lovely the house was! Stephanie had the lights on for us so we wouldn't
arrive in the dark. And that was just the beginning of the thoughtfulness that went in to this beautiful home.
If we needed something in the kitchen - we just looked and it was there. Everything was labeled - we never felt
lost. The decorating was beautiful, the sheets were high quality, and this is just the inside of the house!! The
setting was so lovely and serene. We settled in to the hot tub after the kids were asleep.. and I swear we could
just feel the stress fade away.
The playground was a huge hit with the kids. They spent hours playing out there.
I would rate it excellent...we couldn't have been more pleased!

"What a blast!!!"
Our family of 17 stayed the
week of Thanksgiving 2012...it was wonderful! Everyone loved it...the playroom, the hot tub, the fish in the
pond, the play structure...
the house is extremely comfortable and wants for nothing.
Lots to do in Hendersonville and Asheville was so much fun. Went to Chimney Rock and Jump off Rock...wonderful
- The Gamble Family,
Rochester Hills, MI
We had a wonderful time at the
house! It really made the vacation to have the family there together instead of in separate hotel rooms. We all
had a great time on the deck and the backyard too. My baby loved the hammock and the swing and we had a fun
watching her older cousin play on the swing set! The adults enjoyed the massage chair and the hot tub.
Everything was neat and clean and very well maintained. We appreciated all the little touches like spices in the
kitchen cabinets. The house had enough room so that everyone had their space, yet we could all be there
together. We had a great time exploring the asheville area from downtown to the arboretum. I would highly
recommend staying here!
- The Kahl family, ME & NH
Beautiful, serene location
for family gathering
The house was perfect for
our small family reunion. Its central location was ideal for daily hikes in nearby National and State Forest
areas. We found so many great new hikes, we'll need to come back to find the ones we missed. The house had every
amenity you could imagine and the downstairs playroom for small children kept the kids fully entertained while
the adults relaxed gazing at wildlife on the serene backyard lake and stream. I highly recommend this central
yet very peaceful large home with beautiful, unique decor.
- M White, Gainesville,
for our family vacation week in the mountains!
With 5 small
children and 7 adults, we needed a place with child-friendly activities, adult luxuries, and space! This house
has it all. Very flexible living/sleeping spaces allowed our 3 oldest grandchildren and their parents to have
the lower level suite with large toy & game areas, bunk beds, and a queen bedroom, along with large screen
TV media room where the adults could watch movies or sports with good audio/visual equipment. The kitchen,
laundry and bath here were very useful too. Upstairs the couple with small baby had the Serenity master suite,
with little noise and maximum privacy; their 2 year old loved the Princess Room.
Every need for
infants/small children was met as to beds, stroller, chairs, and so forth. Other adults had the queen bedroom
and Lake master suite end of the house, with plenty of room and 2 more baths. Outdoor and indoor equipment for
children was available & in prime condition. The main level kitchen and eating area were large, well
lighted, and accomodated us all in comfort, and the large deck and grilling area overlooked the back yard with
its playground equipment, hammock, and various tables and chairs for picnicking or reading. The children caught
minnows and frogs in the pond and adults watched the birds and wildlife from the deck or yard. The hot tub on
the lower deck was a treat for all.
plumbing issue caused by a child flushing a toy down the toilet was responded to and addressed immediately even
though it was late at night. The house location in Hendersonville is near many beautiful trails, waterfalls, and
historic sites, not to mention Asheville and the Biltmore House. We visited several, and enjoyed the local
fireworks display on Independence Day with only a short trip to the wonderfully diverse downtown area. There are
good restaurants, nearby grocery shopping, a childrens museum, and many benefits of Asheville with less traffic.
We would recommend this house especially for large families with younger children.
