About Jim and Deb

HI, we are Jim and Deb. We live in Florida, but lived in Georgia 15 years for Jim and 12 years for me. We bought the Lake House as a get away home for our weekends off. We both work for the Airlines and had to move to Michigan for Jim to keep his job back in 2002. We did not get to the Lake House very often. We made the decision to rent it out. It was a very hard decision knowing others would be in our home, but one we had to do since we did not want to sell the home. Renting has been a Blessing to us. We have had really good experiences and even made a few friends. It is fun hearing others tell us what they enjoyed about the Lake.

Jim and Deb purchased this house in 1994

Why Jim and Deb chose Lake Sinclair

We love the home and the lake/area. We want to retire there one day. Our prices are low and have not changed since we started renting in 2003. Lake Sinclair is a great lake. It is powered by GA power, so drought is not an issue neither is there a worry for flooding. They generate power between Lake Sinclair and Lake Oconee. We Love the quiet cove.

What makes this house unique

Our home is in a quiet cove. We love sitting on the swing or out on the dock in the morning listening to the birds and ducks. We enjoy our screened in porch! In the evening we do the same thing, but listen to the frogs and fish jumping. The ducks often come to visit at night because there is a grassy area near us. We really enjoy having a fire in the fire pit and just listening to the quietness. You just don't get that in the city! The stars are amazing also.

We get a lot of guest feed back and we get quite a few repeats who have come for several years now.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the deposit check, Deb. We got it today. Frankly, I was pleasantly surprised by how pretty your end of the lake is. I visited friends on the east side of Oconee a few years ago. The lake views were nice but, by comparison, your neighborhood is adorable. Thanks for sharing with us. The weather was nice and we got plenty of R & R.









Take care,



Jesse and Deborah

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
A lovely lake house that immediately made me feel right at home. Grilled steaks the first night followed by roasted marshmallows at the fire pit & morning coffee on the dock. The home was clean, well maintained and had everything you could need not to mention 2 TVs, a fireplace & unlimited phone use. Pet friendly was another big plus! The owners are great & very responsive. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will be back for sure!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5
My 2 sisters and I enjoyed our holiday time at this wonderful cabin. Communication with eb was perfect. The house was immaculate and decorated wonderfully. The screen porch was such a joy as was the dock. We saw waterbirds, ducks and geese. Our chihuahuas loved walking outside by the water. This is a great place for any and all. Deb and Jim, thank you for sharing your home with us. We tried to treat it as our own as it is such a nice place. I am sure we will stay again when available.!!!

Quiet, Casual Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This was such a nice, quiet, enjoyable place to spend a short vacation with friends. We enjoyed hanging out by the lake, cooking out on the grill and having dinner on the HUGE table on the screened porch, and just relaxing on the couch. The house is very homey and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. Everything was clean and well maintained. Deb was a pleasure with whom to work and was very accommodating. I would highly recommend this property!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
First of all Deb is great! She responds to emails and phone calls promptly. Deb even called after we got to the house to be sure everything was ok. It is obvious that Deb and Jim stay at their home occasionally. They have made sure the property is in good shape and everything you need is provided.
The location couldn’t more perfect. It is quiet, peaceful, and has a beautiful view. It is far enough away from everything to be enjoyable, yet only 15 minutes away from grocery stores. Both Eatonton and Milledgeville have grocery stores on 441that are accessible without even going into town. Milledgeville also has a shopping mall. It is a lovely little town and worth venturing out to explore.
Deb and Jim have everything at the house you could need. From a corkscrew to a crockpot, firewood to spare bulbs, they have provided it. We enjoyed the barbeque grill which was in the best shape of any house we ever rented. The weather was even cold enough to use the fireplace. The house was clean, something you hope for but don’t always get in rentals. It is obvious they take great pride in their home and want others to appreciate it as much as they do.
We enjoyed eating on the screen porch every day, sitting by the cove, listening to the geese as they announced their arrival and departures, watching steam from the water on the cold mornings and watching the leaves fall from the many trees on the property. You couldn’t ask for anything else.
We went for a week and stayed an extra three days. We are already trying to figure out when we can go back.
Thank you Deb and Jim for sharing your home. You made our stay so enjoyable we didn’t want to leave.

Owner's Response: Thank you Linda for the amazing review! Jim and I are so glad you and your friend loved the home so much. I am sorry I wasn't able to give you more days there to enjoy. I am glad you got a few extra days more than you had planned. I am glad you found everything you needed in the kitchen. I have a new crockpot coming in November. We will be back up there then do get ready for the winter guest. We always try to improve on things even if it is small to make it comfortable and in working order. Though we only go about 4 times a year, I want it to have everything already there so I don't have to bring up extra things for my own use. If I need it then my guest need it. We look forward to hearing from you again soon. I do offer a discount for my repeat guest! Thanks again! Jim and Deb

Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5
An anniversary get-away. The house had everything needed for a relaxing time.
We opted to stay an extra day that could have easily turned into two.
Perfect time of year, the leaves were changing daily as the temperature dropped and we spent lots of time on the dock in the sunshine and around the fire-pit during the chilly evenings.
Jim & Deb get 5 stars for themselves and their staff that attend to the homes' cleanliness
and all the amenities.
We can easily see doing this mini-vacation here again!
Thank You

Well Maintained, Good Communication

  • 5 of 5
My husband and two teens stayed here instead of a hotel when visiting Georgia College and University this past weekend. It was a short drive to Milledgeville and we really enjoyed having our own place rather than a hotel room. The scenery was gorgeous and the house is exceptionally well maintained. The owners were great about communicating and checking in to see that we had everything we needed. I originally thought we'd bring our dog, but decided against it since we were going to be gone most of the day on Saturday, but really appreciated having the option. We weren't there long enough to use the fire pit or grill but it's all there!

Owner's Response: Thank you Peggy and family for choosing our home while in the area. We are glad it worked out for you. We hope if you are in the area again you will come back and spend more time checking out the lake and maybe have a fire.
You were a pleasure to work with.
