About Joni Aden
My husband grew up in Nebraska and spent his weekends in a cabin on Lake Jeffrey. His best childhood memories are of those times with family on the water. I grew up in Minnesota, the Land of 10,000 Lakes. We married and moved to San Diego, but I missed the lakes and trees and the ocean just did not have the character that lakes offered. We moved to Georgia in 1992. We love the southern hospitality and the BBQ. The heat and humidity, well not as much. After we had three boys, we knew we wanted to have a place to escape to on the weekends and to build life-long memories. We love spending time together on the lake. The boys are avid surfers, boarders, skiers, you name it. They also love to fish and hunt. I love the quietness of the neighborhood and the cove. It is never crowded with boats. I love to sit by the water and read or do crafts on the back deck. Please visit our home and let us know what you think.
Joni Aden purchased this House in 2002
Why Joni Aden chose Eatonton
With three young boys and a boat stored up at Lake Lanier, we had a frightening moment when our youngest of 15 months was nearly thrown overboard, right out of my arms, by a large house boat and speed boat creating havoc in the water. It was at that point I told my husband I would never take the children back to Lake Lanier. The traffic was frightening and the lack of restrictions on boats and boating made it difficult for families to enjoy. We researched Lake Oconee and absolutely fell in love with it the first time we visited. The lake is beautiful. The shoreline is beautiful. The homes are nestled in neighborhoods along the water or on golf courses. Whether you are a water enthusiast, fisherman, hunter, golfer, bookworm or craft enthusiast, there is something there for everyone. Great dining and shopping and a great movie theatre for those rainy days.
What makes this House unique
Our cove is unique in that it is a "wind-protected" cove. Most days the main lake is very choppy and difficult to boat on. Our cove, on the other hand, is calm. It is not a main thoroughfare from the main lake to the marina. It is a perfect place for beginning skiers or wake boarders. It is quiet. No traffic noise. Stargazing is great at night. Our neighborhood is small and we have great neighbors. We have 150' of shoreline. When the days are too hot or rainy, enjoy time indoors playing games, assembling puzzles or watching movies. Please visit our home.

Was a short stay but a good time! Loved having the gate with the kids in our group
Thank you for your review. The gate does provide a great sense of security and boundaries. You can enjoy the lake and not have to worry about children wandering down unaccompanied. Please come back again.
We love the property likely the only fenced one in Greensboro. Owners are very nice.
Thank you. We are glad you enjoyed the fenced in yard.
We found the house clean and very comfortable! Our little dogs loved running the fenced back yard. We spent a lot of time on the deck including several meals using the nice gas grill provided. We will definitely consider this location again!
Great stay. Enjoyed sitting on the dock every night
From home, to yard, to the dock, everything was great!!!
Great getaway to Lake
We had a fun week. The area is full of fun things to do. The house was spacious and well stocked. Fenced in yard was great for dog and kids. The house is in need of a deep cleaning. Many spider webs in windows, and bathrooms are showing their age.
You can rent jet skis and boats from several nearby marinas, Several day spas including one at the new Ritz Carlton, Incredible shopping and antique shopping in nearby Madison, Eatonton and Greensboro, New multiplex movie theater 3 miles from the house. If none of these activities appeals to you, just sit back and watch the swans, blue herons and deer while enjoying the sights and sounds of the lake.
