Great place for friends and family-Plenty of room to relax & enjoy time together
About Ruthie Gay
We enjoy getting away from every day life from time to time and decided this was a great way to do it. After years and years of working hard it is nice to have a place like this to go to. Yet we can't go often enough so we decided to open it up for others to enjoy. Life gets busy and hectic so we all need some time away to relax and have fun.
Why Ruthie Gay chose Cobb
This property just spoke to me the very first time I walked in the front door. All I could see through the wall of glass on the back side was the beautiful lake. The serenity and calming feelings that this view brought on was breathtaking. Sitting on the back screen deck in the evening and watching the lights across the lake come on and twinkle in the water is just the most relaxed feeling. This is why I just love this home.
What makes this House unique
Turtle Watch is unique in that it has beautiful views but also a very unique charm all it's very own. The coziness and family atmosphere in every room. Nothing over the top extravagant but comfortable and refreshing. The electric boat lift along with the extra covered deck make lake watching, riding or fishing easy for all to be done at the same time by multiple people. Normally with a nice breeze blowing through to keep everything enjoyable. Large enough to take a picnic out to the covered deck and enjoy snacks while you spend the day out doors.

We had a great stay at Turtle Watch. It is a great location on the lake. The sleeping accomodations were as described in the listing. The kitchen was well stocked. Ruthie was an excellent host providing an ample supply of basic necessities. The grandchildren were especially impressed by the basket of snacks. We look forward to visiting again.
We are so glad you had a good time! Our goal is to provide family and friends with a comfortable place to have fun, relax and make so many memories they want to return again and again. Thank you for your review! We do hope you will come again. We truly appreciate you and hope you know you'll always be welcome! Thank you again!
My husband and 3 boys enjoyed this property. The lake view was amazing. My boys enjoyed the back yard playing football in the green space then jumping in the lake. The downstairs kids room was great. We barely heard our loud teen boys when they played downstairs. If you are looking for a quiet area/ town...this is it. Only challenge for us was that we wanted to take the boys tubing... we rented a boat at the only marina on the lake and they wouldn’t allow that. Certainly not a reflection on the home, just the limits of the area. The home actually had more than I expected... I brought so many things from home only to find them already there ( dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, salt/ pepper/ spices, paper plates, napkins, foil, coffee filters, soap, trash bags, etc. ) We have stayed at other Lake-houses where we needed to bring all of this . Also, Striplings was close and easy to get to for all of our grocery needs. Their bacon and sausage were awesome. The owner Ruthie was always very quick to respond to any questions or concerns. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home for a couple days.
Thank you for your kind and good review! Sure hate you had to leave early but hopefully you will return again and be able to stay longer! We try very hard to make sure our guest have a relaxing and fun experience. Thank you so much for choosing Turtle Watch for your lake fun. I didn't know that information about the rules regarding the boat rentals either. Thank you for sharing that.
Turtle Watch is AWESOME!!
This was our second & consecutive stay at Turtle Watch and, once again, our expectations were exceeded! It’s just a wonderful property! Great location, comfortably equipped with all the amenities! Such a relaxing property! Room for our family and several friends! We’ve been renting homes or cabins on beaches, mountains & rivers all over from Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia & Florida from 2003 through the present! This property is phenomenal! Also, the property manager, Ruthie is a real pleasure to work with! The Clark family will be back!!
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay, AGAIN!!!! You are the perfect guest and the ones we aim for. Family, Friends, Fun and memories!!! We look forward to your next stay with appreciation that you have chosen Turtle Watch for your lake fun!! Thank you!
We loved our Fouurth of July visit. The fireworks put on at Veterans State Park was amazing and could be seen very easily. The house was very nice and clean. Wonderful views of the lakes and the kids could swim and have lots of fun. Would definitely be staying again.
Yay!!!! I'm so glad you were able to enjoy the beautiful firework display!! Thank you for your review, it is because of families like you that we truly enjoy sharing Turtle Watch. So happy the children were able to swim and you all had fun. The memories made will last a life time. Sure hope you will come again!! We sincerely appreciate you!
Lake House was Outstanding
This was a perfect lake house. I had 8 guys in for a weekend of golf and boating and the house could not have been better. We have stayed at a couple of different places on Lake Blackshear and this was, hands down, the best one we have every rented. Ruthie was on top of our arrival and letting me know how to access all the amenities of the house. We will definitely look for this house to be available on our next trip.
Thank you for your great review! I am so happy you all had a good weekend and that you plan to come again!!! We sincerely appreciate guest just like you, coming to have a relaxing and FUN time! You and your friends are welcome any time and I honestly do hope you will plan another trip. Maybe stay a little longer too!! Thank you again and I hope you have a wonderful July 4th!!!!
TURTLE WATCH is Perfect for Family
This was our third visit. The property is spacious enough for our 5 grandchildren, parents, and grandparents. We had a total of 11 people during our visit. TVs in all rooms and great screened porch with wonderful view of the big water and large connecting deck for cookouts and outside dining. The highlight for us is the boathouse/dock affording good fishing for adults and youngsters. We caught more fish than we could eat so we have fish at home now. The young people enjoyed tubing behind our fishing boat.
The property manager is superb, always available via text inquiries.
Thank You!!! Your family are always welcome at Turtle Watch. I sincerely hope this is something you will continue. We will continue to improve so you'll have to come back often to check things out! You are EXACTLY the type of people we love coming to visit. Family and making memories is what makes for a wonderful time!!! Each time you've been you've left the home so clean the housekeeper even raves about you! Thank you again for choosing Turtle Watch and I sincerely hope you will come again, many times!!
The GA Veterans State Park is a "Must See" Museum of our history along with planes out in the pasture to walk up to and look at and take pictures with. (10-15 minutes away from Turtle Watch) They are truly amazing. Great place for family day, have a picnic or go to one of the restaurants there.
Andersonville, GA and Americus, GA (about 35 minutes away) many historical Museums and historic sites to visit. Along with more restaurants and shopping.
