When the calendar flips to February our thoughts turn to all things love. So we asked some of our residents and guests what they love most about Splinter Creek. Their answers give us all the heart eyes.

"Our 3 day stay soon became the most magical family experience we’d ever had. We enjoyed the incredible weather with some time outdoors, fishing and hiking. We took full advantage of the home’s amazing kitchen and patio and made homemade pizzas on the grill. We spent our nights sitting by the lake, roasting marshmallows in the fire pit. We played. We rested. We simply enjoyed and cherished our time together as a family."

When it cools down at the end of the summer work day, wine is sipped lakeside by the fire, while her toddler girls play. “Our proximity to the water informs everything we do.”

“The house is filled with windows that look out through the trees and down to the lake. Whether you are sitting on the deck or screen porch, or even inside the house, the lines between inside and outside are blurred. The constant sounds of wildlife, the wind rustling the trees, the blanket of quiet makes it a place of refuge and peace for us.”
-- Beverly Painter, Seldom Seen resident

"We love the sensibility of the development with its focus on protecting the natural character of the landscape. The houses respect the setting rather than stand out from it. We also wanted a quiet lake where we could swim and paddle, not zoom around on jet skis."
-- Sarah Frances Hardy, Camelback resident
Blogger Cara Greenstein visits with friends at Splinter Creek (photo by Erin Austen Abbott).
"The beauty of Splinter Creek swept me away as soon as we entered the gates. Over 500 acres of rolling pine forest and lakes, tucked away just minutes from the bustling college town of Oxford and quaint retreat Plein Air, welcome imaginative homebuilding for ultimate lakefront living."
-- Cara Greenstein, Caramelized blogger
At Splinter Creek, there's 650 acres to roam and explore (photo by Elizabeth Keckler).
"We both grew up more as country kids in small Mississippi towns. We had freedom to roam and explore, and we wanted to be able to give that to our children, too."
