The cabin was great. I would recommend owners have some flashlights and or candles in the home as we lost electricity for about an hour and it was getting dark. Also DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR GPS DIRECTIONS!!! ESPECIALLY IF IT TRIES TO TAKE YOU DOWN WILDWOOD RD/ALPINE DR! IT IS AN ATV TRAIL NOT A ROAD AND THERE IS NO TURN AROUND!

Thank you for your review. So happy you enjoyed the cabin and we will take your recommendation.

Amazing time, family of 5 (3 teenagers), it was perfect for our needs, very clean and well organized, very welcoming, loved the hot tub at night after hiking or lake activities. Excellent location, secluded but not far away from town and lake.
Just be ware of lots of stairs, it is a 4 story unit so you may find yourself going up and down often. over all we give it two thumbs up, and we will be coming back.

Beautiful home in a lovely location. Nice neighbors, however from photos I assumed this was more secluded. That is lack of research on my behalf. Very clean and HUGE. Only problem was the hot tub wasn't hot. It was lukewarm. Management offered to send someone out but we weren't staying long enough to make worth the trip. However, hot tub was big selling point of our visit since it's winter. Make sure to bring spices, no salt and pepper anywhere. Would definitely stay again though.

Manager's Response
Thank you, Shelby, for your review. Cherokee Hideaway is certainly a popular vacation home; the spaciousness of it being a big draw! We appreciate you reaching out to us and allowing us the opportunity to [offer to] remedy the hot tub.
When you guys are ready to venture this way again, give us a call! We look forward to it.

The place was nice. The roads to the cabin was a little hairy, but not a huge deal. The cable in the main room did not work. That was a pain point. The basement / entertainment room was really not inviting. Dart board, but no darts.

As my grandchildren are fast growing up, I wanted to have a family get-away before they all become scattered to various directions. There were six adults and six grandchildren. The grandchildren range in age from eleven to twenty. We found this a perfect location for all of us. Lots of room to spread out and then come together for meals, games, etc. Cleanliness is a very high priority and we found everything to be cleaned to our satisfaction. (Some updating, especially in the basement, would be nice.)

We had a great long weekend at Cherokee Hideaway! The cabin had plenty of room inside and out with everything we needed. We enjoyed sitting outside on each of the 3 decks throughout the weekend and the hot tub was great. We put our kayaks in at the private boat ramp near by and it turned out to be a great spot to paddle around and swim. We had a minor problem with the stove but I called the maintenance number and it was fixed by the time we got home that day so that was really great service on their part! I highly recommend this cabin and we will be back!

Manager's Response
Jana, so glad to hear that there were wonderful memories made! We will pass on a high-five to our maintenance team for their quick action on the stove hiccup. Let us know when you are ready to come again.

We had two adult couples and six 18yr old boys for a lake trip. The house is setup perfect for a large group where some want to play cards all night and others want to actually get some sleep. The decks are expansive and we used them quite often even though it was 95 degrees+ each day. All the woods around the house keep things at least 10 degrees cooler then when we ventured out. Location is very convenient to both Smithville and major marinas. Highly recommended.

Manager's Response
Sounds like your group had the ideal vacation, Jason. We are quite pleased to hear that this home offered your group such a time. Thank you for sharing your experience with us. When you are ready to plan your next getaway let us know!

We chose this property as part of my week long birthday celebration with the family and guests, which included a boating day on the lake and kayaking on the Caney. The cabin was large enough to sleep all of us, and offered plenty of space for evening games in the living area, a game of pool downstairs, and even some guitar playing on the deck. We even got to bring along our pet schnauzers. Plenty of board games to choose from and the kitchen had everything we needed.

Manager's Response
Frank it sounds like you and your family had an amazing time! We are so glad Cherokee was able to accommodate everything you all were looking for in a vacation rental! We look forward to having you in the near future.

We had a wonderful time spending Thanksgiving with our daughters, son-in-laws and 4 teen grandkids. The chalet kitchen was fully stocked to cook an entire meal with nice glass dinnerware, utensils and glasses to dress the table. As well as the bathrooms had plenty of towels, soaps. We spent many hours playing pool and darts. However, there was no ping-pong table available.
The chalet was clean. However, the place did have heavy smell of burning wood from the fireplace. Once we removed the charred damp wood, the smell started to disperse. The sleeping accommodations and comfort of beds were good.
Jennifer and Jessica were very personable and helpful as to activities in the area.
I would recommend this chalet to large groups as there is plenty of space. Parking can accommodate 3 vehicles. Sunsets and sunrises were gorgeous.

Manager's Response
Cynthia, thank you for your wonderful review and kind words about our staff. Center Hill Chalets strive to provide outstanding customer service and a comfortable stay. We are pleased to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back for another trip. Again thank you for choosing Center Hill Chalets for your lodging needs.

We had the most relaxing time at the Cherokee Hideaway. We had our boats docked before we arrived...good thing because parking was limited to just the cars we had. More than enough room for all of the couples/families to have their space. Enough bathrooms for everyone, fully stocked kitchen and a deck on every level. We loved having our shrimp boil on the back porch! The bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen were very clean. Enjoy your time but make sure you bring some extra cleaning supplies because we needed more than what was provided.

Only thing I was not pleased with was the cleanliness. Whoever they have should spend more time on the house.

Manager's Response
Thank you for your review, Jacklyn! We are glad you enjoyed Cherokee Hideaway, and we sincerely apologize for the cleanliness issue of the home. Our cleaning staff works very hard to make sure each and everyone of our homes are spotless for our renters. In the case of a housekeeper not leaving your rental in perfect condition, if you were to call our appropriate contact numbers, we could accommodate you for a touch up on the home if it does not fit cleanliness standards during your stay.

To start off with I would like to say that the first cabin we rented wasn't what we were expecting at all. One call to the office (Jennifer) and we were on our way to the most amazing lake house (Cherokee Hideaway) I had ever been to. Jennifer was VERY helpful and understanding.. She was super sweet and very willing to help. We met Chris the maintenance guy also. He was very nice & Helpful and told us of all kinds of things to do.

Everything inside was super clean and neat. I have got to say the queen bed in the master bedroom was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in!!! (Jennifer if you read this, can you tell me what kind of bed it is or foam mattress on top?? lol!) The shower in the master room was AMAZING also. I'll be buying a new shower head at home. The kitchen has EVERYTHING you would ever need to cook anything, literally. The view is priceless. The neighbor Carol, is a very sweet lady! She came over and talked to us for a while. She loves having "neighbors" at the cherokee hideaway. She loved my husbands guitar playing too :) She said one time people had brought bagpipes and she enjoyed that very much. Told us to be careful or we will be selling our house in 30 days and moving here (like she did).. Sounded very tempting haha.

I would like to come back and bring my kiddo's and family here. Location was great. About 10 minutes from Smithville.

I will say the stairs had my legs burning. Only because I would go downstairs and forget everything upstairs.. over & over again lol!

I have nothing bad to say about this lake house. I can't think of one thing that was missing or one thing I need that wasn't there. I can't think of anything else they could have added to the lake house. It was perfect and i'm not just saying that.

This lake house is totally worth it! Don't second guess it, go ahead and book it!! You won't be sorry!!

Thank you so much Jennifer for everything!! Look forward to coming back some

Manager's Response
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to help! The mattress you are talking bout is a memory foam pillow top. We look forward to your return and if you are ever looking to buy in the area call our office. We are happy to help. Thank you for your review!

My husband and I wanted a nice long weekend away to relax and that's just what we got. It was off season so no one was around and it was so peaceful and quiet. The house was perfect, it was large for the 2 of us but that was just fine with us. There were a bunch of games to play, a pool table and hot tub which gave us some things to do. We would definitely book this home especially with other people to enjoy.

This was a great property. It was clean and stocked with more than the minimum listed. The grill was missing the ignitor but we found a grill lighter in the kitchen drawer. The grill needed cleaning. We had a silicone cooking sheet with us which we used. Directions to the property could be improved. The mileage was accurate but we never saw gravel roads on the right. Instructions to report immediately anything we found wrong were a little confusing because they stated you would be charged a fee if the call was not an emergency (if not normal office hours). We were a little disappointed that there was no lake access from the community. It requires returning to the main road and driving. However,the property had many games available so we just enjoyed staying there and being together. Several roads in the area would best be navigated with a four wheel drive. This property was not a problem to reach but parking space allows only enough for three cars.

Manager's Response
We are glad you enjoyed your stay! There is a small beach and a boat launch at the end of the road. We apologize you were not able to locate that area. We also allow parking at our office for additional cars for our lake homes. This is available so our guests can meet and commute to the properties if the cabin has limited parking. We look forward to seeing you again!

We looked far and wide to find this house and it was as great as advertised. The kitchen is well supplied, the location is perfect, the woods gorgeous, the furniture comfortable and nice! Only disappointing features were the pool table and grill. The pool table, which was one special feature we wanted, has two serious ridges in the table where the slate has shifted. And the grill needs some maintenance and parts. We will stay again next year if we can be sure the pool table has been repaired.

Manager's Response
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are looking into the issues with the pool table and putting in a service order for the grill. We look forward to seeing you again!

Great vacation. Our house was very accommodating for us. This place has a lot of room for everybody and our pets. This is the second time we have stayed in this residence and we like it very much, probably going to do it again next Thanksgiving.

I found this cabin by luck! My husband turned 50 in August and his brother and his family, who live in St. Louis, wanted a celebration with him too. So I was challenged with finding something available on labor day weekend. I found this cabin and it was perfect. They have four children I have two children so it was quite a group but the house is so large we had plenty of room the location was beautiful because you could see the lake from the deck we rented a pontoon boat from a local marina for one day and had a wonderful time . We did not want a lot of commercialization to distract from our visit and this location was perfect the lake view was beautiful all of the decks the kitchen was large the game room was awesome we had a fabulous stay. Very nice and clean too and management were very nice and extremely helpful with anything we had a question about.

I was vey please t bring a group of friends to this house. It was a beautiful location and the house was very spacious and clean. I think it's important to note that there are a lot if stairs and we felt like we were always climbing some. That wasn't a big issue for us, but it could be with other families who have toddlers or older people. It was nice for the teenagers in our group to have their own space. They slept in the 4 th floor loft and hung out in the basement game room. The decks were a nice place to relax.

Manager's Response
Thank you, Pamela. Cherokee Hideaway is one of our most popular rentals. We are happy you enjoyed your stay.

This was a half way point for our family with people coming from Iowa, North Carolina, and Clarksville, TN. There were 11 of us and we all had plenty of room including the kids with their own loft and TV. The game room was a bonus as well as the hot tub and the deck. We all had a great time and planning for next year. We would definitely recommend this home for any large group.

Great house with beautiful view. Most of house was clean (visible areas) but lots of dust/webs in hidden areas (behind washer/dryer, top corners, behind furniture). Puddle in basement corner near hot tub with mold/mildew. Bad smell. Very suitable for families. Kids loved the basement with pool table, ping pong table, game table and TV! They also loved having their own spacious room. Loft area was nice hideaway. Narrow road up mountain was a little nail biting!

We had a couples weekend and rented this cabin. There was ample space for all to sleep. Most everything was great with the exception of the game room, which was not heated! We would have loved to take advantage of the pool and ping-pong tables, darts etc. but it was unbearably cold on that level of the house! Otherwise we had a fabulous stay and would stay there the summer!!!

Great stay at the Cherokee hideaway.

Loved the lakeview. Lots of space. Lots of stairs. Not bad for the heart but stayed confused about which way to go. Up or down. Beds were comfey but the master bedroom bed had a solid wood frame that we each bruised our thighs on. It was hidden beneath a thick comforter! Liked the fire pit but did not aaccommodate the 12 people. Would have liked the decks to be more furnished. Two of the three had no outdoor furniture. Overall we were satisfied.

Lots of privacy between floors to help with younger ones and bedtimes as well as plenty of kitchen space for a big crowd.

Need to update your web site as there were no pool in use, so there was nothing to do, other then drive an hour to get to a mall. Pool would of make it perfect for the family & kids.
Had to call for code to get in as I told Connie that I was leaving MI Thur. check my email from my son's house late Thur night in Indianapolis an no code to get in. Call around 3:00pm to get it and after being on the road 14 hours she wanted me to drive further to the office to get the code so she could see my ID, was not very happy camper.

Manager's Response
We do apologize that you misunderstood instructions for your keyless lock information. For security purposes we do not give keyless lock codes over the phone for the safety of our guests. Cherokee Hideaway is not advertised to have any type of swimming pool, it does however have a hot tub for your enjoyment, and a newly remodeled basement/ family room with a new flat screen TV, pool table and wet bar.

The property ticked all the boxes however it did not go the extra mile as far as the kitchen utensils (No cheese grater), dustiness and the pictures on the website make it seem like the house is walking distance to the lake, however it it not. You have to drive to have lake or fishing access.

Great Stay at the Hideway!

Our experience at Cherokee Hideway was very nice. Clean, spacious, well equipped home. Only suggestion is to have written instructions for hooking up DVD to TV (that is if you don't have your kids with you to figure it out!) If we get the opportunity we would stay at Cherokee Hideaway again!

Everything was great. The only issues I had were:
* the toilet on the top floor was stopped up.
* the basement has water damage that allowed water from rain to collect around the base of the Ping-pong table.
* the flue on the fireplace was opened when we arrived. This allowed the storm winds to blow ashes into the living room.
* the hot tub water was green and looked as though it had not been treated for some time.

We are 3 generations that have been enjoying Thanksgiving at Center Hill Chalets for about 7 years and Cherokee Hideaway for 2nd year. It meets our need for our blended family to be in a beautiful setting without the commercial aspects of vacations and therefore much wonderful interaction such a board games, hikes, etc. We highly recommend this property.

My friends and I enjoyed a fantastic 2 days at the Cherokee Hideaway chalet.
It was more than spacious enough for our party and had ample sleeping accommodations and showers. It was a short drive to the local marina and local stores made stocking up for the weekend easy. Id recommend the chalet to anyone looking for a relaxing stay in a well equipped, beautiful location.

Plan on carpooling as the drive and front shoulder of the road can quickly become full.

I love this property! I hate to say anything even remotely negative but I am afraid the fridge is about to go out. The freezer was perfect but the fridge side was barely cool. it worked out but I thought the owner would want to know. DIshwasher worked fine but it is making serious noise. may want to take a look at this. WE loved it thank you so much! The amount of towels was perfect. Washer dryer were awesome.

Manager's Response
Thank you so much for your review, Cherokee Hideaway was recently sold, and the new owners have invested in new appliances new bathroom fixtures, new lights, new drop ceiling in the basement, and we have a new 50' TV being installed in the game room in the next few weeks. come back and see us soon.

The cabin was clean and the staff was friendly. There was a lot of room in the cabin, but a lot of steps (4 floors!). The cabin is in a good location away from civilization and the lake can be seen from the deck. Parking is limited. I would rent this cabin again as a secluded get away close to the lake!

This house is nice. Its big and has a lot of room. The bedrooms were fine. The view was good. Had everything we needed. Bunk area for the kids was great. Few things to consider...make sure to have a gps to get you there. It is back in the woods a ways and the signage it not that great to get you there. Only parking for two vehicles not boat parking.

Loved how there was truly room for everyone to sleep comfortably--and we really enjoyed the ping pong table and the hot tub. Wasn't too bad of a drive from the lake either! The place was exceptionally clean and nicely decorated. Went above our expectations...thanks!!!

The kitchen is huge and nice for a large group. The kids were in loft in the bunk beds and we blew up an air mattress, but the noise from the adults really disturbed their sleep, both in p.m. and a.m. The decks and outside really needed to be cleaned up...leaves, spider webs, and bird droppings and there was only chairs to sit in on top deck. None at hot tub. We had a blast, though. The house was plenty big and located close enough to both Hurricane and Holmes Creek Marinas for boating, and the rental company good to work with.

Our trip was great!

The directions were not very clear and it should be noted that the roads are unpaved to get to this location. Also, there the fireplace was not stocked with all the necessary tools to maintain a fire. Some firewood should be left on the deck. There should be a lock on the second level going down to the basement. I felt very uncomfortable. The placement of the TV in the living room is not viewable due to the sunlight until after 12. For a fall/winter hideaway this is a problem. My least favorite rental of all the times we have rented with Center Hill.

Manager's Response
Mellissa, Thank You for your feed back on all aspects. I will look into where the fireplace tool set is. We just purchased one for the property. This is a very large home and set up for larger groups, I am sorry as well you felt uncomfortable. The owners finished out the basement and opened it up due to so many requests seeing as it does have a bathroom and the hot tub is on that lower deck. We try very hard to ensure our guests have a great stay. We hope to see you again Sherry Hattaway- Manager

We stayed for 3 days with our family that included 12 people. The weather was fantastic, the view of the lake beautiful, and the area great for hiking and walking. We had some issues with the heat and hot water for the lower half of the rental, but as soon as I called the office, she had someone out to take care of things quickly. We love this area and will definitely be back again:) Thank you for making our Thanksgiving holiday so memorable!
