Overview

Buckhead House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

This is a perfect getaway from the city for a weekend retreat or week long vacation or longer. There is a large dock and seawall in the cove swimming area and a large grassy yard for games and running around. Jacuzzi Hot Tub, nice patio and screened in porch to enjoy the outside.

Heavily wooded on three sides to offer a lot of privacy.

Beautiful stone fireplace in the great room and a firepit in the yard in an open area so no dangers. Everything provided and all you have to do is bring yourselves and good company.

Large great room, fully remodeled kitchen, fully stocked silverware, DVD Player, Satellite TV (including DirecTV sports package to not miss out on the games you want to watch), wireless internet, dishes, glassware, toaster, other small appliances, etc. Pull out couch, recliner, love seat...very open great room for party atmosphere or gathering of family. Washer / Dryer in laundry room.

Exceptional Price. This is the lake house my family uses some weeks as well so we rent for cheap instead of staying vacant and thus you can be the winner with a cost effective place to stay that is on the water and very nice.

For more pictures click near the bottom under links for more information. You can also send me an email and I will email you the Picasa Web Gallery of 30 more pictures.

Call me anytime.

PS - This is not the area of Atlanta known as Buckhead and is indeed an hour east of downtown Atlanta since some inquiries get confused.

Thanks! Greg

About Greg Goslin

My family grew up always having a lake house and my wife grew up on the Gulf COast of Florida so having a place for us to be on the water was important to us.

Greg Goslin purchased this house in 2006

Why Greg Goslin chose Buckhead

We bought this home because it was in the perfect part of the lake in the nice clean water and we have the ability to get to the Ritz by boat or car in short time. We liked being in a little finger off the lake for fishing and kids to swim without boats and waves going by. The yard is great with a fire pit in the middle for marshmallows and late nights relaxing around the fire. It is so peaceful at Oconee in a seasons and a great retreat for us to get away from Atlanta. We have enjoyed so many good times at Lake Oconee with family and friends...plus we are able to help many other families make great memories.

What makes this house unique

Reynolds Plantation 10 min. away', Marina with jet ski and pontoon boat rental 5 min. away', Movie theater, restaurants, Publix Supermarket, and many other things just 10 min. away. Public boat ramp about 1 mile away.

FABULOUS HOME and GREAT YARD too

  • 5 of 5

Our family certainly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful and well appointed home. The owner is very easy to communicate with and answered all of our questions. The house is well equipped and furnished and the yard as well as the firepit a great place for the kids to play and enjoy our family time together in the evening around the fire making s'mores. The weather was a bit cool, but we were able to escape the snow and ice of Maine which has been brutal this winter. Our dog was also welcomed which was a real plus. Thank you so much Greg for giving us a home away from home for our family including our doggie. We will definitely return soon!

Not impressed

  • 2 of 5

Despite my e mail to the owner who has never responded I have now decided to share my experience. Beware the hot tub was dirty filters not been changed ants around the tub, so we were unable to use it. Back of the house screen on porch in poor condition the whole of the back needs a good clean.

Don't be fooled by the photo of the lake it is actually taken from his neighbors house, so that is not the view you get !!

Some decor inside needs attention, hence we will not be returning or renting from the owner again.

Owner's Response: Maggie I am again so very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay as much as you hoped, but in the email you said it was still a great time. I had responded to that email and sent another follow up after a week later as well so I am not sure why it didn't get to you. I am not sure why the filter would have been dirty as the cleaners remove and rinse the filter after every guest, add chemicals, and completely empty and change water regularly as well. I have had them empty and refill the tub this past week after your feedback. The porch indeed did have several of the screens pushed out or kicked out by one of the prior two guests and the repair man hadn't been able to get it repaired in time since it was one guest after another that two week period. There was some storms and i understand that leaves and pine needles were likely in there. I deeply apologize for that and following your stay when they was a few days of no guests the entire porch was re-screened and vertical wood slats installed to protect the screen from being pushed through again as well. It is true in the south that ants are near lakes and they are attracted to moisture. There were several hard rains the week before your arrival and continued. I pay for the highest level of pest service and put in the welcome letter to call me or call the pest control company (phone number in the welcome letter) if anything is seen and they will be there to treat within 24 hours. As far as the pictures, i have two pictures showing the water. One from the house that shows the huge yard, fire pit, and the water and dock. The other is from the end of the cove to show the dock on the right side of the picture so that people know it is not on one of the super skinny coves that go very far back. We are the 4th house on the right side of the cove and only one house further so we loved the setting of being on a cove so it was a built in safe swimming area without big waves of boat traffic zooming past, yet still only a hundred yards or so to get to the open water. I make great efforts to ensure that every family who goes to our home has a great time and deeply apologize that you didn't experience as much fun as so many others have. Hopefully it doesn't deter other families from enjoying it in the future as I believe it is the best value home on the entire lake. As I emailed to you, if there is anything I can do to make you feel better please let me know. Thank you for your time. Greg

Great place on the lake for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We took a long weekend and stayed at this great place on the lake. The owner communicated with us along the way and gave us great recommendations for things to do and places to eat. We ended up renting a boat and found the house easily with the map provided. We were even able to bring our dogs and that's a huge plus. Thank you for a great long weekend.

Buddy Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a lovely stay here. The house was clean, spacious, and access to the lake allowed us to fish and swim in serene conditions. We also enjoyed the fire pit and playing Kadima (paddle sport) in the backyard. There were no problems accommodating all seven of us. I highly recommend it!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

It was great. We have stayed at a few houses through the rental sites and I must say this is the cleanest and has the most comfortable Master bed. We didn't want to leave but unfortunately we all have to return to reality sometime. The hot tub was a welcome break from the lake and the open floor plan was great to allow room for my son to run and play even in the house! (he's 2). Some things to note are, driveway isn't boat trailer friendly unless you back down and there is a stump in the water near the sea wall leading to the main channel. It's best if you hug the far sea wall when entering or leaving the rental house dock.

Comfortable lake getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time at this lake house. Greg is easy to deal with and rental was a breeze. The floor plan is open and we enjoyed the large yard. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathrooms were clean. We enjoyed using the well maintained hot tub, too. We would definitely recommend this rental, and we plan to come back ourselves this Fall.
