About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

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. There are two sofas, one of which is a sleeper sofa.

Each bedroom has its own adjoining bathroom with granite counter tops. You have deck access for both bedrooms that will allow you to slip out and enjoy the morning without disturbing the rest of the household. A roll-away bed is available for an additional child.

If you are a boater, skier, or fisherman, you can dock your boat on our private dock. Take your boat out to the Lake Oconee Sandbar, anchor and enjoy the party atmosphere with the other boaters on the weekends. For an enjoyable evening, take your boat across the lake for a dinner at the Ritz-Carlton. There is a boat ramp 2.2 miles north of our subdivision.

Golfers will enjoy a golfer’s getaway with over 130 holes of golf and ten world-class golf courses to choose from. There are many signature golf courses of the nearby area including Harbor Club; The Landing at Reynolds Plantation; Cuscowilla; just to name a few.

If you enjoy walking, the quiet subdivision is a perfect place for a good walk.

Local restaurants include Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Mexican, Seafood, Steak House and BBQ. Grocery shopping is available at the Publix and Ingles in Greensboro.

Why Marty Pautz chose Lake Oconee

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.

A "PEACE" of heaven in Georgia

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a quiet, peaceful and relaxing stay on the lake, with plenty of lake activity, golf and good food nearby, if desired, this cottage is for you.

The cleanliness and openness is apparent upon first entering the living area. This area leads to a wall of glass doors, through which one steps onto a large beautiful deck overlooking a tranquil lake view under a canopy of trees. Cottage is ideal for two couples who don't like flipping a coin over who gets the better brm. Bedrooms w/bath are similar, on opposite ends of cottage, each with view of lake and private glass door entry to deck. Try this cottage on your next trip to the masters.

Marty will make sure you enjoy your stay.

Fantastic Setting... Expansive Deck... Exceptionally Clean Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a brief weekend, quiet birthday celebration stay 'On the Lake and In the Woods'. Maybe the most impressive part of the weekend occurred before we ever arrived, with the owner offering great communication on the best rout to go, what to do, what to expect, as well as working extra hard to ensure internet access that required new equipment to be installed before we arrived. The home was super clean with everything that's needed for an enjoyable stay, plus back-ups/extras just in case. Best part of the home and stay... the incredible deck overlooking a beautiful, peaceful lake... all wrapped in chirping birds and crisp fall air. Just wish we could have stayed longer!

Wonderful weekend trip!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful. Our group of 7 was very pleased with the amenities and cleanliness of the home. The back porch is just fantastic and the view of the lake makes the whole vacation. We were very sad to only be able to stay 2 nights as it was such a peaceful and enjoyable trip. Would absolutely recommend.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This lake house retreat is beautiful and well appointed. Marty is a very amiable and gracious owner. The cove is quiet and the home has all the amenities that are needed to have a great weekend or week long stay. The views of the lake are from every room in the house. The back porch is a wonderful place to take in the beauty of the lake, trees, and all kinds of birds that are there. Our family had a wonderful stay and plan on coming back.

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

After a 16 hour drive, we were greeted by this immaculate home that spared nothing to make us comfortable from the minute we opened the door. Nestled in between wonderful neighbors on a private part of the lake, Marty and Robin turned their house on the lake into a paradise for all to enjoy. The kitchen had every amenity you could think of as well as an abundance of linen and towels. The TV (with a thoughtful handwritten cable guide of chanels) and wi-fi allowed us to stay in communication with the 'outside' world while enjoying the serenity of listening and watching the birds on the deck sing while sipping coffee! All we needed to bring was our clothes and food and the rest was all provided. Thank you Marty and Robin for your special touch that made the difference between having a nice vacation and a GREAT vacation! Robert & Rosella
