Pinetta House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

Our vacation home is located just 20 minutes from Wild Adventures Theme Park and 30 minutes from Valdosta, Georgia. We are on a beautiful, spring-fed lake just over the Florida/Georgia border. Enjoy a relaxing and peaceful vacation away from it all.

You can see more photos on Facebook at Radloff Retreat.

Our home has 4 BR, 3.5 baths located on Cherry Lake, nestled in a very rural setting yet close enough to everything you need. Cherry Lake is ideal for swimming, skiing, tubing, jet skis, and fishing. Our home has its own private dock.

The property is covered with large oak trees and huge cypress trees. Nature abounds in this rural setting. There are beautiful, friendly swans who live on the lake and a bald eagle is not an unusual sight. The lake is well stocked with large mouth bass, speckled perch, brim and catfish. In the evening enjoy a marshmallow roast or a campfire sing-along in the outdoor campfire area.

There are three bedrooms with a king bed in each room, two downstairs and one up. The fourth bedroom has two sets of QUEEN size bunk beds. These bunk beds were hand-crafted from the left over logs from the construction of the home. You can easily sleep 8 kids in this room.

This home is an authentic cypress log home. It has hard-wood floors. Our home is large and spacious and easily accommodates two families. Great for family reunions, church groups or a family getaway. If you love nature, you will love this slice of heaven!

If theme park fun is what you're looking for, Wild Adventures is just 20 minutes away. This has got to be North Florida and South Georgia's best-kept secret. No long lines and something to do for the entire family, at a great value.

With a variety of roller coasters, shows and wildlife, Wild Adventures is a theme park where you can really get the most for your money. Wild Adventures has opened their new water park, which promises to deliver some relief to those hot summer days in the South. End your evening with a fireworks and laser show that will thrill the whole family.

Jump in your car and you are back at the lake house in just 20 minutes!!!

WE HAVE TWO LARGE HOMES SIDE BY SIDE. IF THIS HOME IS BOOKED, CHECK OUT LISTING #90455. See more photos on Facebook at Radloff Retreat.

About Tina S. Radloff

My husband and I have owned this property since 2001 when we purchased an empty lot and began clearing it for our log home.

Tina S. Radloff purchased this house in 2001

Why Tina S. Radloff chose Florida Panhandle

I grew up spending summers at the lake with my family. These were cherished memories that I wanted our children to have. Our lake home has become a family treasure. We have so many wonderful memories with friends and family times at Cherry Lake.

What makes this house unique

Cherry Lake is the perfect lake for skiing, wakeboarding, tubing and of course fishing. I love the fact that it is spring fed and clear, clean water. The location is quiet and serene, nature abounds here.

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

I can see how this would be an absolute perfect place for a family reunion, it seems most of the reviews are as such, however, my friends and I booked this property to celebrate my 30th birthday and it was exactly what we wanted. It has everything. Fire pit, very large wooded backyard for games, a large dock with lounge chairs and a paddle boat, a grill and an amazing back porch. It sleeps 14 adults very comfortably. Provides a large farm style table for big family dinners. We only left the property to get ice and to dump trash. A couple of the girls went for a run in the morning and said it was the most beautiful jog. The booking process went very smoothly and arrival was even better. Coming from the beach, this was the perfect change of pace we wanted. It is very homey and has a very comforting rustic charm. If you're looking to escape modernity and enjoy the beautiful outdoors then book the Radloff Retreat. You will not be disappointed. Oh and photos don't do it justice. A view from the porch is something to behold.

Amazing homes

  • 5 of 5

We rented both of the Radloff's properties. They are side by side and made a wonderful place for our family reunion. We had bunked 29 people very comfortably. The two houses worked out great, one served as the breakfast house while the other served as lunch and supper headquarters. The docks are great for all the kids and their water activities. The yards are HUGE, we played horseshoes, boccie, cornhole, hung up enos and even used one of the fire rings. It was a fantastic time. I have already been commissioned by the crowd to coordinate next year's get together. Thank you so much for such a fantastic time at your two wonderful homes. They are perfect for a lakeside get away.

Beautiful and the perfect place for our family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home, as well as the Southern Charm rental next door, to accommodate our family reunion. This house was well appointed, clean and roomy! In the mornings, the dock was a wonderful place to have a relaxing cup of coffee, do quiet yoga or just sit and visit with the other early risers. Access was easy and the house was well stocked with bed linens, bath and beach towels as well as firewood a plenty. The deck was a great place to hang out in the evenings and the kids loved the family room area with the game system. The four queen bunk bed room turned out to be perfect for all the cousins. Although we rotate our family reunions between the north and the south, I can't wait until the next southern year, because we all know that the homes on Cherry Lake are our destination! Thank you Tina for providing this wonderful vacation spot!

Not What Expected

  • 2 of 5

We were very disappointed. Couldn't use the grill(s) mentioned in the description because both the gas & charcoal grills were filthy - and no amount of "pre-lighting" would have resolved the issue so we bought a throwaway grill in order to cook what we'd planned. The interior was not clean (oven, microwave not to mention the dust). We were continually finding utensils that weren't cleaned and needed to be washed before use. The furniture on the back porch was also not cleaned so we were unable to use. All a little disconcerting considering the cleaning fee. Possibly if the owner could take a week to do deep-cleaning all would be resolved? The lake is beautiful and the location convenient ... but wouldn't recommend.

Owner's Response: I just received notification of your review and I am very upset. We have never gotten such a review. I have contacted my maid and she informed me that her uncle passed away last week, was terminally ill before that. She is usually very thorough with cleaning both inside and out. As for the silverware, she does not check that, she will unload the dishwasher while she is there. If prior guests put away dirty silverware, she would not necessarily have caught that. I'm sorry that you were disappointed. We try very hard to provide a clean, enjoyable stay for our guests. Sincerely, Tina

Perfect Staycation

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this cabin. It provides the perfect blend of comfort and rustic charm. The lake and dock are spectacular. The rooms are comfy and clean. The kitchen is stocked and loaded with everything you need. There is an incredible amount of space inside and out and even with 12 people we did not feel cluttered or crowded at all. I would highly recommend this for a 2-3 family vacation with kids in the shared bunk room, as long as you plan to just lay back and enjoy the togetherness.
