Guestbook and Guest Reviews

Loved this house!

We rented this house over the weekend of my niece's wedding at Alpine Lake. We enjoyed the house so much. Plenty of space. The wedding party got ready there. The lighting was great. The layout of this house is beautiful. I wish I had the kitchen in my own home. It was perfect. Lots of parking to accomodate multiple cars. I plan on renting this house again. I want to be there when it is snowing. That panoramic view from the great room is gorgeous!

A wonderful weekend spot

My family and a few friends enjoyed a wonderful weekend away at Alpine Lake in the Lake Escape house. It is walking distance to the lake which was very nice. The house was clean and well kept. We had a great time.

Lake Escape

Needed a place to stay last minute for golf outing at Alpine Lake. Clutter Realty made an excellent suggestion to stay at Lake Escape! The home is very nice with excellent views of the the woods and beautiful layout. We very much enjoyed our weekend!

Lake escape

We found Lake Escape very comfortable and clean and fully equipped kitchen. Also the three floors and four bathrooms gave the Space and privacy we wanted. The setting in the trees was just lovely for a fall weekend and good for bird watching. The whole family enjoyed this house and planned to stay there again.

Lake Escape - Gravel Road Race Retreat

A team member and I had a 2-stage gravel bike road race in Rowlesburg, WV. We knew it would be a weekend away from home, so began a search for accommodations for the families. After a brief search, we located “Lake Escape.” It was a GREAT choice! The location, layout and warmth of the house was exactly what we needed. Only a couple slight issues that I would like to point out before further praise. The back bedroom toilet had a leak that prevented use. There was a spare flex hose connection for this toilet, but I did not have the proper tools to make the necessary repair. The grill is also in bad shape. We brought our own portable grill, so no sweat. Back to the praise. The house was very clean and the space was more than accommodating for the 9 of us that spent the weekend. The trail to the lake was sweet! My teammate and I were able to take a quick warm up ride around the lake on the trail and it was nice riding. Would be perfect for the novice rider or a nice change of pace for the intermediate or expert. Again, “Lake Escape” was a great experience! My wife and I and another couple had the opportunity to visit the lodge. The employees there were extremely polite and very helpful with all the questions we had regarding the Alpine Lake Resort. We ordered some beers, wings, pizza, etc. and the service and food were very good. The weekend ended with my teammate and I leaving early Sunday for Rowlesburg to compete in the 2nd stage of the race. The rest of the family and friends packed up the remainder of the items in the house and made the journey to see us finish. We finished 2nd in the duo men’s category in the race, but as a group finished 1st at Lake Escape! Plan on making another journey to West “By God” Virginia and “Lake Escape” is in the plans. Thanks again!

Lake Escape is just that!

We have had our second wonderful visit to Lake Escape. The house is room and sleeps a ton. We loved the path thru the woods to the lake. We thought that was the coolest thing ever. thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us. the only thing that we had an issue with is that the dryer took a long time to dry our clothes. Other than that awesome!

We had an absolute wonderful time at Alpine Lake this weekend. Your home was just perfect for our families! We spent time walking the beautiful trails, swimming at the lake, and fishing in the evening. (The path through the woods was so convenient to get to the lake) Waking up to the amazing woodsy atmosphere made our visit truly memorable. Thank you.

Family, Football, Weekend!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lake Escape! The house had all we needed and enough space for everyone along with a warm fireplace where we gathered and enjoyed our company. Early in the morning we followed the path to the lake and saw many deer. This is our 3rd time renting at Alpine Lake and we surely do it again, much better having everyone together and sharing meals than a hotel room. Thanks from us and our New Jersey family.

Lake Escape

The house was very clean and enjoyable. The basement was a bit musty therefore two of our guests could not use the bedroom down there. Over all we enjoyed our stay and if the reunion were to be held at Alpine again, we would stay there again.

Lake Escape

We had a wonderful time at the house. The only thing that needs a little bit of attention is the kitchen. The cabinets and the oven need a really good cleaning. We hope to come again. Thanks, Gabriela

Lake Escape Review

Our first time at Lake Escape. We were impressed. Looking forward to staying there again. The couple of minor issues that arose were handled very quickly and efficiently by the Clutter Realty staff. Always a pleasure dealing with them.
