Our stay at the lake house was wonderful! The house was very comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed! The house was also in a very convenient location for our family. We really enjoyed our stay!

Loved it!

We rented the house for a wedding in the area. The house meet all our needs and was extremely comfortable. Would definitely rent it again if we are ever in the area again.

Great time!!!

The home was very homey and tranquil. The lake and view from the master bedroom was amazing. We will definitely be back for the summer. Thank you Elaine and Antoine.

Straight forward and comfortable accomodations in a quiet and lovely setting.

  • 4 of 5

This is my second stay at Drake's Landing. First with my wife and two adult sons, and this time just me. The house is clean and provides all the basics. Elaine, the owner, is always responsive and helpful. Her cheerful attitude in sending me some left behind items was above and beyond.The location is very good for south-side Atlanta activities, and is away from the I-75 congestion and hassle of staying in another place along the Morrow to McDonough corridor. The dock on the lake and fishing are cool add-ons obviously not offered at other vacation homes in the area. I am completely satisfied with my experiences staying here, and I'm already looking to bring the family back next year.

Great property

  • 4 of 5

The house is really nice and comfortable and was conveniently located for our needs. We spent a lot of time on the deck as it is well shaded and very quiet and relaxing. The only very small weak spot is the back yard is a work in progress and the dock deck a little shaky. Overall we really enjoyed it. No glitches.

Just Ok

  • 3 of 5

When we got there, there was no one there to let us in. There was no code to let us in. We called the phone number that was given to us. Left message. After waiting thirty minutes, went to 2 neighbors. Thank God, one knew where we could find owner. Drove 15 minutes to find them. Got key. So weekend started off on a bad foot, and had to throw some groceries away (we went to store on the way to the house). Daughter came by later to get TV working for us.

Back yard was a mess. Just had a tree cut down, but they hadn't picked up anything. Hard to get down to lake.

House was ok. Needs some maintenance and definitely interior painting and new beds. Not sure it was worth the price.

Gorgeous ambiance and very relaxing!

Absolutely loved Georgia and enjoyed this home and beautiful surroundings. Our kids caught so many fish off the private dock it was amazing. We bought brand new fishing poles and left them for the next renters :-) hope someone else enjoys them as much as we did!!
