Overview

Lake Oconee House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This beautiful, one-story home is located on a private cul-de-sac in Lick Creek cove on prestigious Lake Oconee. Just minutes from a public boat ramp right off of Hwy 44, four miles from The Ritz Carlton and one mile from Cuscowilla. Arrive from Atlanta or Athens in just over one hour or from Augusta in one and one-half hours and you are sure to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The house is surrounded by large oak trees and is separated from the quiet street by a soccer-field-sized front yard. Large trees line the lake front where you can hang your hammock and enjoy the relaxing breeze off of the lake. The backyard is flat and fenced in which keeps supervised children and pets away from the lake when adults are not hear by. There is a max dock which is great for fishing and swimming. A double garage keeps your car out of the sun. This home is immaculate with an upgraded granite kitchen and a fresh coat of paint. Decorated in a lodge-style decor with leather furniture and warm, neutral colors. You won't want to leave this house.

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 Lake Oconee

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.

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and well appointed. Huge back yard for dog to roam. Unfortunately we had rain the entire week of our stay but we got plenty of rest !! The neighborhood is very quiet and remote. Lake view is gorgeous. Good restaurants in the area with a great Publix grocery store.

GREAT HOME ON THE LAKE

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in your home. It had everything we needed. We caught fish at the dock and I loved the fenced in back yard. It is just a short distance to Lake Oconee Village and we took in a movie while we were there.

I hope we can make another trip maybe this spring.

Thanks,

Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home is on a quite cul-de-sac with a lovely view of the lake and is ideal for those who want to bring their boating equipment. The house is well equipped, clean and nicely decorated. The large, fenced back yard was ideal for our small dog. We enjoyed the many restaurants and toured the antique shops and lovely antebellum homes in nearby small towns. Many thanks Joni for sharing your Lake House with us.

Great Family Escape

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Joni, for sharing your home with us.

We had a great time staying in this lovely home. We decided to stay in GA this year for our lake vacation instead of traveling to TN. We brought our boat and jet skis and all the toys we had. We also had our cousins from OH join us. It was great! We had plenty of space inside for all of us and all the amentities we needed. We really liked this home because of location, the beautiful, shady fenced yard and an empty garage. While the empty garage sounds strange it was great to keep our car and things we weren't using out of the hot sun and occasional thunderstorm.

We loved being able to bring our dog with us, the squirrels were not so happy. The fenced yard was perfect for him, it was in the high 90's but he was happy in the shade while we were hanging out around the dock. (We discovered he is not an water dog, so sad. He is also not too bright as he walked right off the seawall and fell in the lake.)

The dock worked well for our boat and skis and the home is convenient to the boat launch. We checked out a lot of the lake, including the jumping rock and sandbars. We even squeezed in a visit to UGA for our high school kids to check out. It was an easy drive and worked well for a side trip with great places to eat.

The lake was quiet but not deserted. We never worried about too much traffic like we do at Lake Lanier. One thing we wished for was more restaurants on the water. There are plenty up the road so not a big deal just hate to leave the water.

I would absolutely recommend this home and these owners to my friends and family!
