Overall Impression: Great Place...Good Value

I was looking for a place not too far from my home where I could take my 10 year old daughter on a deer hunt. I was concerned about a "hunting camp" atmosphere and told the Utsey's as much when I first called them. They assured me that I need not be concerned about people misbehaving at Water Valley . They also said they would take good care of my daughter. WOW! Did they ever! Everyone there was so welcoming and friendly. She saw lots of deer each time she went out, many of them bucks. She was nervous about killing one that was too small and wouldn't pull the trigger on several bucks that she saw. Finally they took her to the six point area where she killed a nice 10 point! And she shot a doe as well. I really can't say enough good things about our trip to Water Valley Lodge. Our room was extremely clean and we had a bath all to ourselves. We thought they were giving us special treatment because of us being female and all but it turns out that every group has private accommodations there. My daughter is a real pickey eater but it never mattered there. She ate everything that came out of the kitchen. Needless to say, the food was excellent! Can't wait to go back!
