Nice Property

  • 4 of 5

Had a great stay. The property was exactly as represented. Very clean, good furnishings and appliances. Plenty of parking for trucks and boat trailers. The dock was across the street but easily accessible. The lake location was perfect as it allowed short boat travel to all the portions of the lake we wanted to fish. We will rent here again.

Tournament Friendly

  • 5 of 5

The owners are exceptional and easy to deal with. They offered us a late checkout after our tournament so there was no rush to pack in the morning. Plenty of boat parking and close to Spring Creek Park and Big Jims. A very pleasant stay that I hope to make again.

Five days spent at the Lake Seminole Property ID p3845641

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I arrived around 3 PM Monday afternoon about the same time our two guests and left Sat A.M. The property is in fairly good condition. Every thing was clean and the appliances worked fine and it is evident some thought concerning everything needed for our stay was there except the food we brought. Lots of dishes, towels, bathroom supplies, washing detergent, etc. Beds were comfortable and clean. House needs inside doors aligned and other minor items. Verizon telephone service was spotty in the house and the wifi was marginal, I believe because of weather conditions. The dock that is available for use was nice except the slip was too narrow for my 18.5 ft AlumaCraft deep vee hull boat. I could get about three feet of the front in to tie it off. We found out the morning we were leaving from a great neighbor, Bob, that the lake was up about 18" over normal levels. (Bob was very helpful and courteous, a very nice man) I have been fishing Lake Seminole for over 15 years and never experienced hitting stumps and submerged logs while running in the marked lanes. It was not safe to run at planning speeds because of the lake being muddy and could not see the tops of stumps and submerged logs, so we idled most of the time. A nice launch ramp and parking is within about a mile at Spring Creek Park. We enjoyed out stay but the lake conditions were terrible this trip which is very unusual. Big Jim's Grill serves a great seafood meal. Very good service, good food and ample parking. It is about a mile from the house we rented.

Great Family Atmosphere and Wonderful Landlord!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I truly enjoyed our stay at Lake Seminole. The weather was amazing, fishing fruitful, and Georgia is the best landlord we could ask for. I will definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. Who knew that becoming a landlord would lead you to meet such great people! As a prior guest, if you book a future reservation within thirty days of your stay, you will receive a ten percent discount on your next visit. Actual future visit must be within a year from your previous one. I look forward to seeing you again. Regards, Georgia

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Lazy Creek Lodge was exactly what we hoped it would be. The house was well-maintained and plenty spacious for us (two kids and two adults). Our dogs loved the fenced-in backyard, which was bigger than I expected based on the pictures. The fire pit was also great for relaxing and cooking. What really stood out was how helpful and accommodating the neighbors and owners were- they even helped us build a fire one night. Although we cooked most of our meals, we had a great meal at Big Jim's just down the road.

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.
