Guestbook comments from the owner
We just celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary on Sept 16th We enjoy our stay, so delighted you shared your home with us :) We fished the pond & lake. My son came over & fished with us-memories: a priceless gem

We saw a deer, a hawk with a fish in its claws, & a little bunny rabbit.

The home is nice, big & supplied all we needed.

Slept in master suite. Played ping pong & fuseball! Thank you

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this home and our stay! We came for the Fishers of Men Youth Tournament. There were 11 in our group- never felt like we were on top of each other- plenty of space for more! The kids had plenty to do when they weren't fishing, the kitchen was great for making and serving large meals, had all that I needed. It was peaceful and quiet, pool was refreshing. Beds were oh so comfortable! The only thing I would have changed was staying longer! We say turkeys, rabbits, deer, an eagles nest- the list goes on! We are already planning another stay! We wanted for nothing, the owner is one of the nicest people you will meet. Told us if we needed something and it wasn't there she would get it for us! How wonderful is that!?!!

We had a wonderful time all the kids that came up for the birthday party didn.t wont to leave. Loved the way the up keep was and the pool was great.We have a big family and there was plenty of room,and my house dog even got to come she like the big yard. Ms Penny was great any time we called her she was right there. rented the golf carts to get to the lake it was a nice ride threw the woods.and the lake was beautiful. we'll be back again and would tell all my friends and family about it.

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
I would recommend this property to my friends and relatives. We had a very peaceful and relaxing time. Very large property, lots of wooded acreage that fronts on the lake. Very nice dock area. We enjoyed sitting down there by the water. I enjoyed walking the trails thru the woods. My husband has a little trouble getting around so he rented one of the golf carts that are available so he could accompany me. The owner was very nice and helpful. The view from the living area, master bedroom and back deck was nice as it overlooks the woods and pond. The living dining area is large and open, as is the master bedroom. There was foosball and pingpong available in the game room. Also there was a large screened in outdoor pool. We couldn't take advantage of it as the weather was too cool. The property was clean and has a well stocked kitchen. All in all, we were very happy staying there and would go back.

Great for tournament anglers!

  • 4 of 5
The four of us stayed here during the ABA nationals in october of 13. We had a great time fishing and staying at this rustic home. We had no trouble parking our four bassboats and trucks. Plenty of hookups for under 50ft. of drop cords. Less than 20mins from most boat ramps on that side of the lake and easy to get to on those country Georgia roads! Penny was a great host and offered any assistance needed. The boat dock is a hick through a wooded trail that is pretty neat. Penny will ask if you could release any fish in her pond if you could. We did! Would love to know the history behind this home as I'm sure you will!!

Thanksgiving 2013

  • 4 of 5
If you are seeking a beautiful, wooded, get away from it all location-this is it. Beautiful area for walks in the woods and to the lake. Take your supplies as the "real" grocery store we found was 20 minutes away. Owner was WONDERFUL-even subscribing to satellite TV sports package so we could watch football rivalry games. She was on site, easy to reach, but totally unobtrusive. Large open kitchen and living area-great for our large crowd. Kitchen was adequately stocked and we prepared our own Thanksgiving dinner in house with only large roaster brought from home. Three bedrooms, each with their own full bath, and single level home was just we needed. I do agree with the one reviewer that the furnishings could use some updating, but beds were comfortable and plentiful and lots of seating in kitchen and den. I would warn those taking pets that there are a number of specimens of taxidermy that brought growls from one of our dogs. If the dog had entered the house first, the taxidermy may have been in danger. We would stay here again!!!
