RENOVATED; This wonderful vacation home is on the lake and nestled in the woods. The private dock is on deep water and the view from the porch is a big-water view. Sit on the porch with your morning coffee, listen to the song birds, watch the blue birds feed their young, or simply sip your coffee and enjoy the serenity of the lake. This home is a relaxing get-away retreat for the weekend, week or longer.

On the inside, you will have a lake view from any room in the house. The house has renovated great-room, kitchen, bedrooms, and baths. The spacious great-room is big enough for the entire family and your friends to gather with ample seating, a beautiful brick fireplace, and a 42” HDTV with Directv.

Why Marty Pautz chose Greensboro

Before buying this home, we looked at a lot of other houses. As soon as we opened the door, we knew that this was the one.

The doorway revealed a very spacious and comfortable Great Room. On the other side of the Great Room was a beautiful view of the lake,

Walking through and sitting on the deck gave a feeling of serenity. The lake view was unobstructed and peaceful. The wooded lot is a magnet for Georgia song birds. There is nothing that can beat the feeling of sitting and relaxing on the deck.

We have never been sorry that we bought this home.

Clean, Comforatble and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed here as home base for our Masters Golf Trip. I found the home very comfortable and clean. The back deck is about 20 yards from the water and the view is awesome. It was quiet while being just 10 minutes from Greensboro. The owner's instructions are concise and access to the property was a breeze. Great place to stay!

Athens, Ga

We really enjoyed our stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this lovely lake house. The area the house is located is absolutely perfect! It's right across from Reynolds Plantation, but tucked away in a cove so you don't get all the heavy traffic. Great cove for wakeboarding and tubing. Also there is a sandbar less than 500 feet from the house. Great place to drop an anchor and relax while the kids jump off the awesome rock! We had plenty of cookware, blankets and seating on the porch. We couldn't be more happy. We will 100% return again!

Cozy, comfortable lake house!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our family this past Memorial Day weekend and had a really good experience. The house felt comfortable and clean, while the kitchen was equipped and stocked with everything we needed. We loved sitting on the oversized deck & drinking morning coffee and the flat walk down to the dock. There was a place to tie up our boat and the cove was quiet but still provided awesome lake views! This house has a great location on the lake with a few options for places to eat on the water: less than 5 minute boat ride to Gabby's at The Ritz and we also tried a new restaurant a little further north called the Boathouse. We would definitely come back! Thank you for a great weekend!
