Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Our lakefront home will become your favorite family vacation spot! Beds for 12, plenty of dining space, deck and yard space for the whole gang, including new rock fire pit. It's also cozy enough for a smaller group, or even just a couple.

We are located on a large lot off GA Hwy 44 between the Publix Shopping Center and Harmony Crossing Shopping Center. It is only 9 miles from Historic Greensboro, GA, and just a few miles from Madison, Georgia—voted the #1 Small Town in America in 2001. We are located between Reynolds Plantation and Cuscowilla for easy access to their restaurants and amenities.

Our home offers four bedrooms on one level! The layout provides plenty of privacy for you and your children or friends. The lot slopes gently down to the maximum sized dock with boat slip. A separate free-standing deck provides a shady spot for watching lake activities, including fishing, boating, skiing, and jet-skiing. (Watch for our neighborhood great heron and ducks! I spotted six white ones on my last visit, along with two ‘ugly ducklings!’) This home is located on a nice cove just off the main body of the lake. You can enjoy fishing and swimming in the deep water just off our lighted dock.

Sleeping Arrangements:

On the main level the private master bedroom, with king-sized bed and lake view, jetted tub with separate shower is located on one side. On the other side, one bedroom has a lake view, queen bed and private bath. Two additional bedrooms with queen beds share a bath. The HUGE bonus room upstairs is furnished with a double bed AND four twin beds--and has its own full-sized bath.

We have a minimum stay of three (3) nights. However, in certain circumstances we may be able to accommodate a two (2) night stay. Contact us if you have a need for a two-night stay.

Why The Owner chose Eatonton

In 1988 we bought this beautiful, wooded vacant lot on Lake Oconee, hoping to one day built a vacation home. For several years, we enjoyed weekends and holidays with our two young daughters in a camper! In 2000, we found a house plan that we love, and over the next year or so, we built a lovely, custom home. We (and our friends) have had many wonderful getaways here. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

A great layout for family and friends, convenient to shopping and sightseeing, lots of room to roam, and great boating and fishing make this a great place to spend a weekend--or a week!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This lakefront home is absolutely beautiful! The house is very nice and welcoming. Location is very nice and the woods surrounding the house makes you feel at peace.We stayed here during hurricane Irma- the owner Carol is super awesome. It was a last minute decision to visit Lake Oconee and Carol helped us throughout the process. Carol is quick to respond and was always available for all the many questions we had! She made sure the house was ready by the time we reached and was also so kind to allow us to come in almost a day early ( as we had to leave Jacksonville to avoid Irma!). I would definitely come back to stay here again to enjoy all that the house and the lake offers. Getting the firepit going on a beautiful evening by the lake, friends, family.. this is the place!!

Amazing house and location!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit! 4 families of multiple generations including 4 kiddos ranging from 5-15! The location was easy to find, the house was beautiful and well stocked. There were even kid toys and a pack and play for younger ones. Lots of indoor and outdoor space to relax! In short, it was a great location that met the needs of our varied group and made our long weekend together that much better!!

Exceptional Home for our 45th Wedding Anniversary or any Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 45th Wedding Anniversary at this Beautiful Home and it was large enough for our Family and Friends (12). The Home was laid out so perfectly that even though we had a crowd we all had enough space in different areas for reading or just watching TV. Home was Very Clean, Kitchen had everything you would need for cooking and a gas grill outside. Beds were Very Comfortable. 4 Bathrooms accommodated all. Enough Kitchen and Bath Towels for all, kids toys included. Carol was very kind and available if needed . We had a GRAND time and were so pleased with our choice. The Lake was a blast - for fishing, boating, kayacking, floating and swimming. Publix -5 min. away, great Restaurants, etc. Home and property is Exceptional. We Thoroughly Enjoyed our Stay and This Home.
