Our stay at the lake house was wonderful! The house was very comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed! The house was also in a very convenient location for our family. We really enjoyed our stay!

Great property

  • 4 of 5

The house is really nice and comfortable and was conveniently located for our needs. We spent a lot of time on the deck as it is well shaded and very quiet and relaxing. The only very small weak spot is the back yard is a work in progress and the dock deck a little shaky. Overall we really enjoyed it. No glitches.

Just Ok

  • 3 of 5

When we got there, there was no one there to let us in. There was no code to let us in. We called the phone number that was given to us. Left message. After waiting thirty minutes, went to 2 neighbors. Thank God, one knew where we could find owner. Drove 15 minutes to find them. Got key. So weekend started off on a bad foot, and had to throw some groceries away (we went to store on the way to the house). Daughter came by later to get TV working for us.

Back yard was a mess. Just had a tree cut down, but they hadn't picked up anything. Hard to get down to lake.

House was ok. Needs some maintenance and definitely interior painting and new beds. Not sure it was worth the price.

Gorgeous ambiance and very relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

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!!

Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We were looking to get away to have a little family time . Very clean house with all the comforts of home . The view is unbelievable to wake up to and all the geese . The house is close enough to the Aquarium, World of Coke,and the Zoo so you don't have to stay down town . Hated to leave. We will be back real soon .

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!
