The house was very nice and had good amenities. It is also close to several recreation areas as well as having access to the water from the floating dock.

The house was big enough for my family. We all had a comfy bed to sleep in. The back balcony/ porch was absolutely perfect for morning coffee. We fished off the dock, and fed the birds. It was pleasant and relaxing. My bday is close to Thanksgiving so we cooked up A proper meal and the kitchen was stocked. Only wish they had more comfortable living room seating. All in all, it was a great stay.

We enjoyed dinners and game nights together. Sitting on the back porch at sunrise and sunset watching the birds made this a very relaxing and fun stay

We stayed here with friends for a weekend in August 2021 and had a great time. The house was clean and organized and it was easy to find everything we needed to cook for ourselves which included using the outdoor grill. We enjoyed sitting on the deck by the water and taking in the sights and sounds. There's a lovely butterfly garden out back that we enjoyed.
Wi-Fi was fast enough to use Zoom and my work VPN all day.
Water pressure was fantastic.
Parking was super easy.
Never heard a peep from the neighbors even during the day.
We saw some roadrunners and deer on the property.
Overall this place is fantastic. Definitely somewhere we'd go back to for a relaxing time.

My cousins and I get together once a year for a girls weekend and this house was PERFECT for what we wanted! A nice secluded place so relax and visit with each other and be able to swim a bit! The cove is super nice and great for swimming around the docks. We really enjoyed ourselves and I would recommend Red Bird Retreat to anyone looking for a relaxing place to spend a few days!

Although the house was good, the construction next door was very loud the entire time we were there and started early. The beautiful pictures are also misleading as there isn't more than 2 feet of water around this dock and it is not on the actual lake, but rather a tributary to the lake. Also if you have young kids please know the stairs up to the loft are not really stairs but a fancy ladder-although the property provided "gates" that could be setup, if you have any toddler those won't help and even with other kids we had to help them each time. Porch and bird watching is nice when the sounds from the construction allow for some peace and quiet.

Beautiful drive, comfortable home, nice patio and dock

We had a good stay at the house. We had four kids with us. It had a grassy area all fenced in. We let them out and run around. There are a lot of stairs. This place is not for older people. The lake was way down so you had to walk down some steep stairs and rocks to get to the water. Once we got to the water we had fun jumping off the dock . Upstairs loft has 3 twins and one full bed. It was great for the kids. There were steep stairs to the loft. It is dangerous for small children. Overall, it had everything we needed for a nice weekend away.

We loved the Redbird Lake House! It was perfect for our group, we cooked out on the grill, had enough beds for everyone, spent a lot of time on the balcony deck, and even more time sitting on the dock and hanging out it the water. There was a full sky of stars our first night, which was beautiful and the place felt private and comfortable, I hope we can come back again in the future!
