Wild Woman's Weekend 2016, #14

  • 5 of 5

My group of 16 ladies thoroughly enjoyed this vacation getaway! My group does a trip somewhere every year and this year we hit a home run! Thank you for sharing and letting us occupy such a wonderful and accommodating lake vacation home. Yes as in many of the other reviews I have to agree we all loved the restaurant Janssens nearby and had 2 meals there and also enjoyed The Big Mouth Pizza place. We loved that we had 5 acres of privacy and we could giggle all we wanted without disturbing anyone. The back deck was a great place to gather and hang out day or night! Plenty of beds for everyone and lots of space so we were not cramped! The owner and the manager were very accommodating in that they answered any questions we had and made us feel very welcome. If it works out me and my crew want to come back next year!!! I cant wait!!! Thank You Bill and Sondra Cownie!! We absolutely loved being there!! Definitely want to return!!!

Awesome property for large/extended family stay

  • 4 of 5

The Cownie Lodge is a beautiful property, very spacious, private and secluded. Yet, only a 5 minute drive to the town of Greers Ferry. The well known waterfront restaurant call "Janssen's" is literally a two minute drive from the Lodge. This was, by far, our biggest pleasant surprise! The food was amazing, the service was VERY good and the prices were VERY reasonable. Where else can four people eat a Snow Crab Leg Feast, side dishes, desert and a great fresh salad bar for a $100 bill!! There was also an awesome Pizza Place called Large Mouth Pizza in Greers Ferry.

Back at the Lodge, the multi-bed upstairs great room was perfect for kids who wanted to stay up late playing games and watching TV. The two upstairs private bedrooms were nice for guests. The HUGE Master Bedroom was very quiet and nice. The extra refrigerator in the garage was very handy for keeping that "extra food" that always goes with a lake trip. The "mosquito free" sprawling back porch was very relaxing and actually where we ate most of our meals. We never use our formal dining room at home......sure not going to use one on vacation....lol. We would recommend taking a "deet" insect spray to ward off ticks and chiggers as you explore their beautiful property.

We launched our boat and water toys directly across the bay from the lodge at the Devils Fork Rec Area. We moored our boat off shore at the lodge and managed ok. A dock would certainly be preferred but those are pretty rare on Greer Ferry Lake. I would always recommend going on a trip like this during the week and staying away from the "big weekends" like Memorial Day and July 4th. The water is SO much nicer when you are one of VERY few boats on the entire lake. We left on July 3rd and it was PERFECT. The lake was turning into a mad house the day we left.

We had one issue with the main TV at the property when we first arrived and Mr. Cownie was VERY expeditious in replacing it and making sure everything was ok. My family and I truly enjoyed our time at the Cownie Lodge. We entertained several guests and family members throughout the week and make some very lasting memories.

Best Regards,

Great Lake View

A wonderful place to stay to relax and play on the lake. Easy access to lake to boat, fish, swim or enjoy the most beautiful sunset. The house has a lot of room for relaxing and enjoyment. The back deck provides a beautiful view of the lake and scenery.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Just enjoyed a Memorial Day weekend there with lots of family! The house was great! Floor plan is perfect! Nice large room upstairs for all the kids to play and sleep. Tons of yard space for yard games and still right on the water! Will definitely keep this house in mind for future gatherings. And the owners were so nice to work with. You won't regret renting this house!

Never disappoints!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful getaway. I can't say enough good things about this property. We've used it for lodging many times on golf trips & it's extremely beautiful. The setting couldn't be more perfect on the lake & away from all distractions. The floor plan is fantastic & it sleeps a lot. A lot! Give it a try. You'll love it.
