About the property

4 Bedroom 3 Bath home in a large cove off the main lake.

Home is in a large cove off the main lake so it doesn't get the traffic the larger body of waters gets which is great for kid safety. The area is great for water skiing, tubing, jet ski, etc. The area is also good for fishing for crappie, bass, catfish. A ten minute ride to great Restaurants like The Silver Moon, Filets, Waterside, Bone Island Grill, & And Gaby's at the Ritz Carlton. Large living space in basement with 65' tv for the men to watch there favorite football game.

About Dennis Higgs

I'm a native of Ga and travel with my work so I decided to rent this home. I purchased my first home at Lake Oconee in 2000, which was off the water, but I love to fish so I was always searching for a waterfront lot. When this lot became available in 2006 I purchased it and started building this home.

Dennis Higgs purchased this house in 2007

Perfect for the family

  • 5 of 5

We (5 adults, plus 7, 5, & 2 year old boys, and two dogs) had a great time. The place was in perfect order when we arrived. We had everything needed for the week as promised. The beds were all very comfortable and having 3 bathrooms was a major plus. We rented a pontoon, had a kayak and big swimming raft, so spend most of the time at the dock and in the lake. Dogs had a good run are with the large backyard down to the dock. Cooked mainly with the green egg grill and some meals on the stove ( Could use some new fry pans and better kitchen knives). Definitely would recommend this place to friends.

Great location and house

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location on the lake. The cove was quiet and perfect for fishing and swimming. The house was great. My kids loved having their own space downstairs. We had everything we needed. The next door neighbors were so nice and welcoming. Added bonus, the boat ramp was only a couple of miles away.

Nothing Special

  • 1 of 5

The property was nothing special. The neighbors were nice, but the house in the middle of no where so you need what ever you want for the weekend before you get there. Also the owner is very invasive and was always in constant contact. No privacy. If you have 1 more person there than you tell him, his brother who lives across the lake will call him and the owner will kick you out. There are far better property's on the lake and I warn you about this house.

Owner's Response: The following was this renters original inquiry about renting my home! Hello, My name is Scott S and me and my church group are planning on coming down to Lake Oconee for a weekend. We are really interested in using your house and would love to be able to stay in it next weekend. God Bless The nerve of this kid to misrepresent himself as being with a church group and that group would be staying in my house. The group of kids that showed up were college kids and not only trashed my home but someway managed to get into the neighbors home as well, but the sheriffs office is handling that part! My posting on VRBO clearly says NO one under the age of 25 yours old or NO college student are allowed to rent.

Wonderful week

Great house for family vacation, boating and swimming off the deck. 20 minutes into town , but we loved the solitude. Family wants to come back next year!
