    The property was beautiful and unique. There were many choices of activities (pool, sauna, kayaks,paddle boards, ping pong, etc).

    This is a beautifully maintained property with a salt-water pool / patio area, lake access and great game room. The room was comfortable and clean and the owners were friendly and attentive. While the property was well-kept, with many amenities available, it is not truly a "resort." It is a privately-owned house where the owners live on-site and share the common area with the guests. We were not expecting this arrangement, and again, while the facility is well-kept and clean, we were surprised, based on the advertising we read that the room was in a private home. We enjoyed our stay and took advantage of its proximity to the greater Raleigh area. However, we recommend a more direct explanation of accommodations, via Travelocity, Expedia, etc., to give potential visitors a clear understanding of The Lakeside Resort.

    We’d give this property 6 stars if we could. The pictures on line of the inside don’t do it justice. Property is gorgeous, immaculate and spacious. The grounds and lakeside areas are lovely and quite well maintained. Mark and Kathy are excellent hosts. We recommend this property! Amenities abound. Wonderful game room. Loved the beautiful, large saltwater pool, ornamental fish pond and sauna. There is an excellent steakhouse about 10 minutes from the property.
