Notes:
Rental of this home includes the use of the dock across the street. (About 200 feet) Prior notice will allow for use of covered boat slip also. Due to opening and closing of Jim Woodruff Dam, the water depth fluctuates so a deep hull boat would not be able to access the slip.

Best fishing vacation ever! Awesome location ...Awesome people...Awesome setting

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect. Extra big yard for parking, playing with kids, etc....fenced in back yard for smaller kids to play. Do not let the "dock across the road" fool you, it is only about 20 yards to Mr Bobby across the road to his house and the dock. Bobby Cook was the host with the most! The fishing dock has everything needed for a day fishing. It also has excellent views of spring creek and the wildlife around the lake, and a large swing and outdoor patio chairs for relaxing, or to just have a family fun time picnic. We have stayed over the years at several other locations around the lake "right on the water" but this was simply the BEST place ever! We plan on making this our regular stop every year due to the hospitality and overall location of this home away from home. The fish had moved away from the docks due to a cold snap, but i still managed to catch my limit each of the 2 days I fished. I spent the other 2 days just being lazy and spending time with my grandson from Florida that came to stay a couple nights. Unlike another location I had looked into that required a "list" of names and nights of family members that would visit, these owners allow you to "make yourself at home". I just can not say enough about this wonderful little secret hideaway.......but with excellent service like they give, it will not remain a secret very long.

Owner's Response: Best review ever! Thank you so much for your generous words. The description of the availability and closeness of the dock and water is helpful for future Rentors. Mr. Bobby certainly enjoyed your company and we both hope to see you soon. You are highly recommended as great rentors!

Very Nice Location and Dock!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house filled with everything needed except our personal things. My husband liked the extra side yards for parking and electrical hook ups.

We enjoyed watching the sunsets swinging on the dock. We had a great time and will return.

A home away from home! Loved it! Best Spring Break our family has had by far.

  • 5 of 5

Best time of the year to be on the lake and fishing! Caught our limits daily! The home was like our own, everything you need was there. Friendly owners and neighbors. Very helpful to any questions about the home or boat dock use. Caught and cleaned fish and docked and charged boat batteries at the dock. If you love fishing/boating and being out on the water this is a great place to stay with the family or even a group of fishermen! Close to Big Jims for a cooked meal and a dollar store just up the road for any last minute necessities. Highly Recommend and plan to rent again!

Owner's Response: Mr. Roy, Thank you for renting the property and for reviewing it in a positive way. My apologies for the narrowness of the bathroom doorways and for any difficulties they may have caused. I will make a better effort to cover the accessibility issue with any new rentors. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. Georgia
