Overview

Blue Heron Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

Fun, Bright, Casual Beach House with a great view of Blue Heron Lake and all the wildlife at the backdoor! It is a great spot to unwind with family and friends. Our home is very family friendly.

Our three bedroom home is located on a double lot that offers a wonderful view of Blue Heron Lake from our large, gated deck. It is about a four minute golf cart ride to the main beach, island club, pools and tennis courts. Our house has everything needed to enjoy a beach stay including the use of the golf cart. We also have a sleeper sofa in the alcove off the living room.

The home has recently been updated to include hardwood floors throughout, new appliances, decking, outdoor eating area, dining table and chairs and living room furniture. We have all the cooking gear needed for great seafood dinners or casual grilled meals.

Guests may purchase amenity cards from us for access all the Island amenities.

About Cathy Pinto

Our family fell in love with Fripp when we started coming with our kids in the 90's. About 7 years ago we were fortunate enough to purchase our home. We try to enjoy it as often as we can get away from the Atlanta craziness and get down to the slow pace on Fripp.

Cathy Pinto purchased this cottage in 2004

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much we enjoy your home on Fripp. We love being with our family and relaxing on the deck. The improvements you have made are really nice? We hope to return soon.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

First time to Fripp Island for our family, we loved it! Hope to make it a regular trip. Loved having a golf cart included in rental, a cart is a must on Fripp. We enjoyed riding around as much as anything. House was great, nice gated back deck looking over a lake (saw a couple gators). Really enjoyed seeing all the deer too! Only downside, and I hate to complain, is that as a Non indoor pet owner, we found a lot of hair (on and around comforters and furniture). Being we have 3 little ones this wasn't great as they find everything.. I feel bad even saying it bc we did love the home and hope to rent again, but it wasn't super clean. But thanks for a great place to visit!

We absolutely loved Fripp Island and staying in the Otter house!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Fripp Island and Our stay at the Otter house was awesome! We could not have asked for a better location. We were a short distance to the pool and the beach and our deck over looked water as well so we could sit out there is the mornings to drink coffee and evenings while we grilled and see the deer. My almost two year old little boy loved the big deck and yard to run, and his favorite part was the golf cart rides. The house was so clean and very spacious. Working with Cathy was so easy and she answered any questions we had. We will defiantly be back for sure next year at at this house if it is available!

Perfect place to feel close to nature

We had such a great time. Loved hanging out on the deck overlooking the lake. And the deer visitors! There are so many fun things to do in the area and it's also a great place to chill. We hope to go back next year for sure.

Everything about property is great

  • 5 of 5

The location and view are fantastic. If you love wildlife this is the house for you. The whole experience was great and we can't wait to get back. Don't underestimate what a benefit the cart is. You won't know until you get there!!! Cathy was great.
