Athens Log Cabin Getaway -Private Lake, Campfire, Serenity"

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin on lake, 2 BR plus loft with total 4 db/queen beds.- sleeps 6.

Serenity awaits you at the Luxury Log Cabin located just 12.25 miles from the heart of Athens. This cabin was built 16 years ago and is located on a private 20 acre watershed lake.

No matter what brings you here you will enjoy the solitude of being the only home on the lake. Many visitors come just to get away from the daily grind but most come here to be close to UGA activities! You can watch the game from the comfort of the cabin or be in the middle of Sanford Stadium in minutes.

Wifi is included and there is cell signal on the property. No pets and no smokers are allowed so we can keep the cabin fresh and clean.

While you are here you may enjoy fishing in the lake where there is an abundance of Brim, Crappy, Bass, and Catfish. You can sleep late and awaken to the beauty of the lake through the master bedroom window then go out to cruise the lake on kayaks or the jon boat. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils for any occasion. You can relax on the wraparound porch and enjoy meals indoors or out.

Theaters, shopping, you name it and it's there. The Commerce Outlet Malls are only 10 minutes from our home in case you have shopping on your mind!

After dinner, you can relax by the lake and enjoy s'mores by the campfire as you unwind from the day. Hmmm...sounds good!

We prefer to answer all questions and complete reservation via email through this site. Our reservation calender is up to date. If your date shows availability you can book online. Thanks!

About Jamie Ramsey

I grew up on the 60 acre farm that surrounds this beautiful cabin. I built the cabin and lived there during college at UGA. After college it became a family getaway until I decided to share it with others through vacation rental.

Jamie Ramsey purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Jamie Ramsey chose Nicholson

We are the third generation of my family to own this property. The home is located on a private watershed lake that was built in the 1960's.

What makes this cabin unique

There is no place like this where you can be so secluded and yet so close to town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying the cabin. My oldest son has Asperger's and is very sensitive to smells, bugs, and what ever else he perceives as not being clean. He said he could live here! That is a huge compliment!!! Said it was best place he's ever been. The other three kids having a great time too!

Beautiful Cabin and Setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin and the property. Beautiful woods and location on the lake. Very ptivate. We'll kept and maintained.

Wish I would have discovered it at the start of my daughter's college career rather than graduation.

Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Jamie's cabin from Feb 15 to the 19th 2018. My sisters came out to visit my wife and I as well as our daughter a freshman at UGA. The cabin was perfect for our needs. Plenty of room. Kitchen open to living room, everyone together to hang out. Cabin was supplied with everything we needed, just brought personal items. We went into town/UGA quite a few times and the drive was easy, 20 minutes one way. Nancy and her furry friends live in the property well in front of the cabin. It was nice to have someone close by if something came up. I would recommend this cabin for anytime of the year. We plan on returning in the fall and enjoy the fall colors and UGA football! Go Dawgs! Thanks Nancy and Jamie!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. When I lived in the cabin during my time at UGA, I enjoyed that my Mom (Nancy) was close by in case I needed her but far enough away to allow me complete privacy . I always enjoyed going into the deep woods on my way to the cabin! Please return often to enjoy the changing seasons on the lake! Sincerely, Jamie Ramsey
