Internet reviews for Heaven On The White:

Amy R. Trip date 4/15/22   5 Star Review  "My family of six (including kids ages 9-14), my parents (mid 70s), and my aunt/uncle (70s with mobility and balance challenges) stayed at this exceptional property for 3 nights. The home is immaculate, well stocked, thoughtfully designed, and extremely comfortable. The common space is perfect for gathering, and then when one needs his/her space, retreating to their own room/bathroom is all that needs to be done. Beds were extremely comfortable, TVs with streaming were perfect for adults and kids, and kitchen and grill made food prep exactly what we needed. The kids hiked up the mountain, visited the neighbors’ horses, fowled, and biked until they were spent, allowing lots of time for the adults to catch up. We enjoyed a gorgeous fire the first night and made the perfect s’mores. Dr. Ray truly goes above and beyond to make sure his guests have all they need and want, and he has put a lot of time, energy, and money into making this place a treasure for all ages. We have booked numerous places in the US in the last two years, and this was by far the best we have ever booked. We cannot wait to return, and we highly recommend Heaven on the White."

Beth G.  trip date 5/20/22  5 Star Review  "Heaven on the River was EXCEPTIONAL! Ray made sure that we had a great time by checking in on us via text and suggesting great activities and restaurants to take advantage of in the area. The home is beautiful done and so spacious and comfortable for our entire family. The kitchen was the center of the home and fully stocked with everything, I MEAN EVERYTHING! The outdoor spaces were just as exceptional. Basketball, bikes, a new game called FOWLING which was so much fun for our adult children. The back porch had a nice fire pit area and lots of comfy chairs to sit and watch the River and enjoy a warm fire. WELL DONE RAY! Your place is on our list of places we will definitely be returning to. We are already talking about spending the holidays at HEAVEN ON THE RIVER!" This review was originally posted on Airbnb.

Danielle F. trip date 5/12/22  5 Star review   "A group of us in our mid to late 30's flew in from Atlanta for a friend's wedding. Hands down - we had THE BEST AND MOST MEMORABLE experience at Ray's home on the River.The kitchen was fully equipped (including spices, which is rare for a Vrbo rental).Crystal, the property manager, is wonderful and like Ray, goes well out of her way to make your stay comfortable and all around perfect. There is a large and inviting living room area with an open kitchen concept with a picture perfect view of the river, smart tvs, fire pit with plenty of seating, outdoor fowling game, basketball hoop, games, just everything you need to have a great time with family and friends!Bedrooms are super clean and the sheets feel like butter.The pictures don't do this home justice. Look no further-book it today!If we ever go back to White River, without a doubt I will be staying at Ray's heaven!"         *This review was originally posted on VRBO

Jennifer S. Trip date 4/22/22 5-Star review  "This home was beautiful, well built, and large enough for a few couples or a family trip. It was well stocked with what we needed. We were there to fish and had no problems parking or charging our boat. Everything in the house is top notch, well thought out.Ray was such a pleasure to deal with and just hold a conversation. He answered all of our questions about the area and spent time talking to us as he was our friend. We would not hesitate to stay here again if we are in the area.Thanks again Ray"  This review was originally posted on VRBO

Dustin and Angela W.Trip Date 3/15/22 5-Star review  "Hands down, amazing property. We had two families of 5 stay here for 5 days and we had more than enough room. Dr. Ray, the property owner, goes above and beyond to make sure your stay meets your needs. My husband brought his Blackstone grill so we didn’t use the one at the property (we are kid of obsessed with cooking on the Blackstone!). We enjoyed many home cooked meals and the kitchen was great for that as well. We loved that we were able to do laundry as well. We had 4 teenage boys with us and they spent the majority of their time outdoors. When they weren’t fishing, they were playing basketball on the basketball court there! They loved it! We enjoyed the fire pit and the patio heater as well. I fell in love with the dining table because it fit both of our families around it. We enjoyed every minute of our vacation at Heaven on the White and highly recommend staying here. We can’t wait to come back!"  Originally posted on VRBO

Ray met us at the house when we got there and showed us everything the house had to offer as far as amenities, and it is a lot! Kitchen is fully stocked with literally everything you could need for cooking. Entire house was super clean. Looking forward to renting again in the future."  Originally posted on VRBO

Steve B.  Trip date 4/25/22  5-Star Review  "The property was well suited to accommodate our group of 6. It is hard to find a property with 6 separate beds and adequate bathrooms but this one was excellent. The large kitchen and eating area worked well for us. The accommodations were excellent and the owner made sure everything was in good working order. His attention to detail and concern for his customers enhanced the experience."  Originally posted on VRBO

Britni  Trip date 3/24/22  5-Star Review "Our family of 12 including 6 kids stayed here. Ray was an awesome host. The home and area were both beautiful. We enjoyed fishing behind the house and other nearby areas. The kids loved the bikes and basketball hoop. We hope to come back again someday!"  Originally posted on Airbnb

Sarah H. Trip date 3/11/22  5-Star Review "This was such a relaxing and beautiful place to getaway to. We had 4 adults and 7 kids...plenty of room and things to do. The kids enjoyed climbing the mountain by the house, playing basketball, and visiting with the neighbor dogs and horses. We also hiked, visited the fish hatchery, and spent our evenings by the campfire. Dr. Ray was a wonderful host and made sure we had everything we needed. We would love to come back!"  Originally posted on VRBO

"Everything was so clean and so nice. The owner made our stay so perfect. So many fun things to do— fishing, sitting on the back porch and enjoying the view, bike riding, fowling, sitting around the huge table to play games. This was the perfect space for our weekend getaway with friends!!! We hope to go back soon!"  Originally posted on VRBO
Brittany  Trip date 2/25/22  5-Star Review  "This place is absolutely Beautiful down to every detail. Our host Ray was extremely helpful to communicate with during our entire stay.. He was excellent with directions to get us there and also told us about some great local places to eat. The house was equisite down to the custom wood bar tops, light fixtures, spectacular river views and comfortable bedrooms. The kitchen and dining room table had plenty of room to fit our entire family of 8 comfortably during our stay. Ray, was right when he called it, "Heaven on the White" it truly is a peaceful property. We loved the colorful sunsets on the River at dusk by the fire. We made wonderful memories and will definitely be back. Ray, was by far one of the nicest, easy-going and helpful hosts we have had!"  Originally posted on Airbnb

"We spent our 40th anniversary at this property. The house is new and appointed beautifully to accommodate guests for a brief trip or a long stay. Everything we needed was there. We loved the veranda and could watch and hear the water for hours from there. What a lovely place to enjoy our anniversary!"  Originally posted on Evolve

Stephanie K. Trip date 11/26/21  5-Star Review  "This place definitely lived up to its name. We had such a pleasant experience. The house and property were beautiful. There was so much to do right outside we only left once for groceries! The kids stayed entertained morning noon and night. We watched a couple of bald eagles hunting from the tree right off the patio. We fished and climbed up the mountain in the front yard. We enjoyed the outdoor games that were set up. We looked at the stars and just about everything else with the binoculars provided. The patio heater was a game changer. There was lots of space inside too and plenty to keep the kids occupied!! We can’t wait to enjoy this place again! Thank you Ray for accommodating this 5 star experience!"  Originally posted on VRBO
Laurie  Trip date 11/24/21  5-Star Review  "This beautiful home is not only a lovely place to stay it is also very accommodating and spacious. I celebrated Thanksgiving with my family there . Not knowing what the kitchen would be equipped with I was pleasantly surprised! I had everything I needed to accommodate my entire family! Pots, pans,plates,silverware and serving accessories ! The kitchen was a joy to cook in ! The bedrooms were so inviting and comfortable, not to mention every bedroom has its own bathroom, the restful nites' sleep and beautiful view made coffee on the back porch overlooking the white river even more enjoyable!! I highly recommend this beautiful place and plan to go back !!"  Originally posted on Evolve
Jennifer  Trip date 11/22/21  5-Star Review  "The well built house is super nice and feels clean and new. The back porch was a favorite hang out spot for us, as was the "fowling" area in the side yard. Ray was easy to communicate with and ready to accommodate our needs and answer any questions we had. Every bedroom is well sized and has its own bathroom, which was awesome. The view of the river and the land around are beautiful and so relaxing. We had a large party of 8 adults, 3 kids, and 2 dogs. The kitchen and dining/living areas were great for our needs and easy to use with everyone together. It never felt too crowded. We didn't find the games and cards until the morning we were checking out, but they're in the entertainment dresser under the TV. :) There were some free roaming neighbor dogs, but they were super friendly. This is disclosed in the guide emailed to you after you book. Just a heads up if you have dogs that don't get along with other dogs, this isn't the place for you. All in our party expressed wanting to make this a yearly retreat. We loved our time there very much!"  Originally posted on Airbnb

Michelle P.  Trip date 10/15/21  5-Star Review  "Everything about this place is well thought out, comfortable and absolutely gorgeous! While the house is beautiful and roomy, my favorite place to be was on the back porch watching & listening to the river. So relaxing and peaceful. The perfect get-a-way! Highly recommend."  Originally posted on Evolve

I can’t say anything bad about this place, from the Host to the neighbor Pat (who by the way has a book for you to read… bc she’s the author) also brought us homemade pecan sandies! Her and her granddaughter were amazing! The house was stocked with everything we needed! From spices and oil to Body wash for the boys! Plenty of sleeping space, plenty of extra cozy blankets and plenty of activities! Definitely on our list of return places if Dr Ray will have us!   Originally posted on VRBO

"The place is beautiful! We had 6 adults and 6 children and we had plenty of room for everyone. The cabinets are very well stocked and the host was so easy to deal with. If the answers you were looking for about the area weren't in his guidebook that he sends, he is super fast in getting an answer back to you. We had 2 boats that we pulled to use on the lake and there was plenty of room for us to park them. It really is a beautiful place to relax."  Originally posted on Airbnb
