Gorgeous ambiance and very relaxing!

Absolutely loved Georgia and enjoyed this home and beautiful surroundings. Our kids caught so many fish off the private dock it was amazing. We bought brand new fishing poles and left them for the next renters :-) hope someone else enjoys them as much as we did!!

The unassuming, Family Friendly, Jewel on a Beautiful Lake

  • 5 of 5

It's the best time me and the family have had in a while. We love to fish. It's perfect for taking the small John boat to the water. There are ducks and the biggest Swan we've ever seen upclose! Yes, they come right to the dock! Two balconies, made for amazing evening and morning. Kitchen is fully loaded for you to just bring in groceries and cook. We really felt like we were in Helen, GA. The pictures do this retreat very little Justice for its full potential of the house. It is so much larger than you would think.

We loved it.! We will be renting again this year!

I loved the quit retreat. My family enjoyed all the activities provided for them boating, fishing, board games and a huge variety of movies. Well stocked pantry was a treat. And my biggest joy was the cleanliness of the home.

Thank you so much for your hospitality through your vacation home.

Conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at your vacation home. It was easy to find and conveniently located south of the airport. We took advantage of some of the local activities and enjoyed relaxing in the evening. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. We also walked to the lake and watched the swans and ducks. It was very relaxing. We would definitely return if our travels bring us back to the Atlanta area.
