APRIL H. Our family booked this property prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and we had to reschedule our stay until the end of September. When we originally selected this home, there were no reviews. However, during the months leading up to our stay a couple of very negative reviews were made. Needless to say, we were concern and even tried to cancel our reservation based upon those. After speaking with one of the reservation specialist, we came to the conclusion that we would stop ruining our vacation by worrying over the reviews before it began.
I AM SO GLAD WE DID! The home was perfect for our family. It was huge, very clean and exactly as described. The kitchen was well stocked, the game room and outside patio quickly became the kids favorite spots and there was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. The beds were all comfortable and each room had a beautiful view and private balcony and bath. The kitchen was phenomenal!! There's plenty of wildlife to experience such as turkeys, deer, lizards and bears.
We were warned that there were bears in the area and we shrugged it off. Well needless to say, there are definitely bears and they love the trash bins. :-)
There were a few maintenance issues that we informed the maintenance team of and they quickly responded. The only negatives would have to be the lack of cell phone reception and difficult lake access which are both something that cannot be fixed due to geography. The one parking space provided at the lake is literally on the side of the road in a curve and there's only room for a very small compact car.
I would recommend a television be placed in the living room and that the exterior receive a good pressure washing.
If you have a large family or gathering, this place is perfect. We have no regrets and will stay here again.

Overall experience was very good. Had a few items that still need to be addressed but much better than reviews in the past.

Our closest family and friends gathered in this home for my youngest daughter's wedding weekend. I had been so worried about the past reviews on this home and had contacted turnkey many times to be sure that the home would be clean. I was happy with the cleanliness and all amenities with the exception of a lack of comfortable sitting areas and the lack of a big-screen TV in the main living area. We would have loved to have watched our Clemson Tigers on Saturday in that room all together. The location was stellar as well as the views! The outdoor covered grilling area was so cool as well. The firepit doesn't have good enough air flow to keep a fir going though. The KITCHEN was AMAZING!

Josh G. Overall, we were very pleased with our experience at the Souvenirs Lake House! There were some minor things that could use some updating in the near future, but they were not significant enough to have any major impact on our satisfaction. Those things would primarily be, internet was very lacking, both refrigerators appear to need service as they are just barely staying around 32-35 degrees, and finally the firepit could use some drain work to allow the water to drain instead of puddling. Also, there was a problem with some fruit flies the entire weekend, but we couldnt really determine why, unless the previous guests had left something behind that the cleaning crew was able to get rid of, but some of the flies remained (we checked in the same day as someone else leaving). Everything else was as expected/promised and we are already considering re-booking for the same event next year!
