55Beautiful spot
35The location was beautiful and my dogs enjoyed it. I did not enjoy the empty beer cans left on the location. It appears they attempted to fence off under the dock but it was ripped down and appeared it could be a bit of a hazard. Other than that my dogs enjoyed the lake and the play time
55Perfect spot to introduce dogs to having wet feet. Our dogs loved their time here and were able to move out of the shallows into deeper water at their comfort level. Absolutely loved it here and cannot wait to bring them back again!
55What a great way to introduce my pup to the lake!! Water was warmer than I thought it would be, plenty of shallow water to in before it deepens, sand and mud was super soft and nothing pokey in it :)
55My pups had loads of fun! The host is wonderful and left snacks water and towels out and is extremely responsive. We will be going back! The lake area is not fenced so make sure your dogs have good recall. The neighbors old big dog came down for a visit. He's totally sweet (old and laid back) just be aware if you have a dog aggressive dog.
35Be aware that the only fenced in area is a very small front yard(Prob 1/4 acres) and the fence is short(prob 3 ft). The rest of the area is nice but not fenced in and neighbors are close.
45We visited today. Our pups had a good time. The only fenced area is the front yard, not really big enough for larger dogs to run in. There’s a big back/side yard (unfenced) for running that leads down to the lake. The beach area is muddy as to b expected lake front which didn’t bother our explorers or us. If your pup is not a good listener or doesn’t come when called, this may not be the place for you. Ours ran to the neighbors yard on both sides to check them out, but came back when called. The host is 5 ⭐️ amazing with communication and water, snacks, towels , toys etc..,
55This place was amazing. Tinsley was so hopeful getting the wifi setup so I could work. She asked if I needed anything and had water and snacks for people and toys for dogs. My dogs loved the lake and the back yard was shaded with lots of trees. This hidden gem is a must see to beat the heat.
55Absolutely made my week! Perfect in every way. My dog loved it. Thank you for your hospitality!

Every spot is very unique which is the fun part of Sniffspot. We want visitors to have clear expectations before their first visit; this is why we provide so much detail in the description. Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions, so we can ensure you have the best visit possible. Parking: Please park in the gravel driveway, not the concrete driveway. Do not park in the grass as it becomes damaged over time. If you arrive early, feel free to hang out on the swing next to the gravel driveway. Chain Link Gate Entrance: Walk down the gravel driveway to access the chain link gate entrance. Next to the man gate, there are water canteens, water bowl, dog toys, dog towels, bug spray, white bucket for trash, and dog treats majority of the time. We do our best to keep the water canteens at the entrance full with water. The only water hose to refill water canteens or rinse your dog off is at the house. There is a water hose on a reel at the front and back of the house. At the entrance, we have a solar light which only lights up the entrance. If you are comfortable being on the property past sunset, head lamps and flashlights can be provided. We will leave the outside house lights on which provides light in the back yard but not the whole property. Also, if you turn your car headlights on, the lights point directly at the field providing some light. Nature: 3 sides of the property run parallel to a creek and woods, so you might see critters (i.e. turtles, snakes, deer, raccoons, birds, crawdads, ants, etc.). Closed toe shoes are a good idea to wear. In the wooded section, there are wood chips, so they easily get caught in flip flops. Open Field: There is a large open field when you first walk through the man gate. In the field, there is a metal glider, two metal chairs, two swing chairs, and table. There is a dome climber play center for kids and a trampoline. Dogs and kids are welcome to jump on the trampoline. (Note: There is no longer a safety net around the trampoline.) The open field holds water after a good rain. We put straw down to help prevent mud. Woods: Towards the back of the property behind the house, there is 2.3 acres of open space with plenty of shade from the mature trees with two hammocks and a fire pit. If the field is wet, we suggest hanging out behind the house in the woods. The ground is always more dry. House: Our house is located on the property within the fenced in area. During visits, we always stay indoors with our dogs with the blinds closed to give guests their privacy. If we happen to arrive from work or errands during a visit, we park at the end of the driveway and walk through the driveway gate straight to the house. We try to message our guests ahead of time if we might arrive during visiting hours. If your dog is reactive to strangers, we certainly appreciate a message stating that, so we can plan better. Creek/Kiddie Pool: To the right of the large open field, there is another man gate that provides access to a creek. The creek is not fenced in but is on our property. The creek has a small sandy beach for digging, two lounging chairs, and a small table. Our dogs swim in the creek almost every day. We keep a long orange leash at the creek gate in case your dog wants to enjoy the creek but has selective listening skills. The leash is long enough for the dog to get in the creek while the owner stands on the bank. (Note: The previous owners buried their trash for years on the creek bed. We are in the process of cleaning it up. The section that has trash is barricaded off with black netting, so dogs can't access the area with glass, metal, etc.) We understand some people don't want their dogs swimming in the creek. We have a kiddie pool, 30 gal black plastic stock tank, and splash pad available during warmer months. The water hose is on a hose reel at the back of the house. Feel free to fill it up with water for your dogs to cool off. Neighbors: We have neighbors that have indoor dogs. Our fences do not touch at all. However, when their dogs are outside in their fenced in back yard, they can see visitors at the main entrance. The neighbor's dogs will bark out of excitement when they see visitors. If you walk back further on the property, they can't see you and won't bark. If your dogs are reactive to the sight or sound of other dogs, this spot might not be the best fit for your dogs. Lastly, we have a neighbor across the creek and through the woods with a rooster. The rooster can't be seen but can be heard at times.
