Lake Blackshear House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Excellent location on Lake Blackshear, main body of the lake with perfect sunsets and recreational opportunities for the whole family. A shaded porch, large sun deck, wood burning fireplace, high dive and boat ramp.

This 7 year old home was built with the family in mind. With water depths starting at just 2 feet and gradually falling to more than 12 feet at the end of the dock. The 10 foot high dive will entertain kids of all ages while you watch from the sun deck enjoying music from our 400 plus CDs or your own iPod.

With our private boat ramp you can launch your boat or PWC from the property, leave it safely in the water all week and conveniently park your trailer out of the way and out your view. Lake Blackshear offers more than 20 miles of cruising as well as excellent spots for the best ski and wakeboard runs.

After a full day of sun and fun, dine comfortably on the porch while the sun dips behind the pines to deliver the best sunsets in Georgia. Of course, you might opt for relaxing in the swinging bed with your favorite beverage as the setting suns yields to the star -studded night.

The interior of the home offers panoramic views from all of the living areas plus the master suite. In addition to the lake view the master features a 4 post queen bed and a private bath with a garden tub.

Each of the other 3 bedrooms are furnished with full size antique iron frame beds. The 2nd full bath is easily accessed from bedrooms or living area. There is a third full bath located on the lower level adding capacity plus convenience for easy access from the dock or sun deck.

The living room offers comfortable furnishings, a wood burning fire place and big screen TV including a DVD player and collection of great movies.

The washer and dryer are conveniently located on the main floor. All appliances are modern and dependable with a full kitchen, dishwasher and microwave.

This home was built with the family in mind, specifically our family and we are happy to share it with yours. Ben & Jennie

About Ben Stephens

Jennie and I live in Fernandina Beach, Florida but I grew up in this area and we come back often to enjoy the lake with our family and friends.

Ben Stephens purchased this house in 2006

Why Ben Stephens chose Lake Blackshear

This property has been in our family since 1973. We built a new home in 2007. We live in Amelia Island, Florida and enjoy this property with our 3 children. Having grown up on this lake, I'm sure that Lake blackshear is no longer the best kept secret in Georgia.

What makes this house unique

We love to come here to 'unplug' . The quiet rural lifestyle and peacefullness on the lake is the cure for our busy schedule.

Rest and Relaxation and Family time!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in this home. Corresponding with the owners was effortless. The pictures are not deceiving! It was truly a pleasure waking up and being able to step out onto a patio to view the lake and capture some sun on top of the boat house! The sunsets were beautiful! The family enjoyed the diving board !! The house was well maintained and had any item we needed. The beds were very comfortable! Truly a paradise to relax, get refreshed and bond with the family!

The house itself is great - really clean. The kitchen is stocked with everything you would ever need to prepare food. The dock with the diving board is way fun. My nieces and nephews came down from another house to dive. The best part of the rental is the view of the lake at sunset. It can't be beat.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was one of the best vacation experiences my family has ever had. The owner was very caring and responsive to questions pertaining to the property. The house was immaculate and very beautiful. The house was well equipped with ANY thing that you could possibly need during your stay. We loved the personal touches of family photos and items that made the house feel as if we were staying in our own home. We have spent the last few years vacationing at the beach and this experience has changed our vacation destination for the years to come. We will make Lake Blackshear our permanent vacation experience.
