We now have DISH network on two HD TVs with OnDemand and DVR capabilty.
This house sits right on the lake and has shallow water for kids to swim in.
There are two good size bedrooms, a master upstairs that opens to a balcony and one on the main. The master has a queen bed, and the main has two twins that can be brought together or kept separate and a studio bed.
There are two smaller bedrooms with bunk beds that work especially well for kids, and the loft has a set of bunk beds and two long couches
There is a maximum of up to 8 guests allowed to stay in the lake house during a visit.
There is a 9' x 16' boat slip in the boathouse, and we're just 200 yards down the lake from the boat ramp.
We have a decent assortment of pair and slalom skis and tube to pull behind your boat, and a pretty good array and sizes of personal floatation devices.
There're some cane poles for fishing, and those work well for kids (Mrs. Brooks sells all the worms and crickets you'd ever want for bait).
There is Wi-Fi, a 32 inch HD TV, and Blu-Ray DVD connected to Wi-Fi for Netflix, but currently no satellite TV. (I'm thankful for a break from the TV.) It accepts X Box, PlayStation, Wii, etc.
My family has owned this lakehouse since I was in first grade, and I have too many memories here to list. The fish caught, learning to ski, teaching people to ski, cooking out, the banter of other house across the lake in the evening, waiting in line with UGA Head Football Coach Vince Dooley for our names to be called at LaPrade's (they didn't care who you were; you waited until your turn to go in), shooting off fireworks....
My own son now cherishes every trip we make there.
Parks Stewart purchased this house in 1970
We're on the lake side of the paved road, so we're very accessible. Since there's an open slip in the boathouse and a nearby boat ramp it's easy to bring your own boat.
Seed Lake is not a turbulent lake like Lanier. It's small enough that it's not total confusion. If you have friends on Burton or Rabun you're just a quick car ride away.
Nobody has the view and location we do.
I loved this property because it reminded me of what a Lakehouse is supposed to be. This isn't fancy, and yes there are some things that need to be fixed and maintained, but this is old school Americana lakeside vacationing at its sweetest best. If you want fancy, high end Viking appliances, overstuffed leather couches and leather bound books on the shelves, this is not for you. If you want a place where you can swim all day in a beautiful lake, then wrap yourself in a towel and go inside and sit anywhere you'd like, enjoy the family cooking in the kitchen while looking out at the beautiful view of Lake Seed at a reasonable rate, this is a good choice. We enjoyed barbecuing outside, swimming in the lake, borrowing a boat and enjoying The entire lake for evening boating. This was a good value for the money. I would stay here again.
This was our fourth stay at this site and as in the past we all had a great time. There iare always plenty of things for the grand kids to do and a great place for the adults to relax sitting around the fire pit on the nights when the weather allows or gathering on the large porch. We look forward to coming back for the 5th time.
This property was perfect for my family. You can't get any closer to the water. The house is comfortable and very roomy. The screened in porch was a plus and we sat on the "observation" deck to watch a meteor shower. My boys fished, my wife sun bathed, and I paddled around in my kayak. We can't wait to rent this house again!
The house is a perfect rental property. Plenty of room for 13+, open airy interior, inches from the water, plenty of close parking.
PROS: Cost per night, location on lake mostly private, Very Kid friendly, Heavy stream of hot water showers, screened in porch for meals and relaxing with full view of lake, large kitchen/dining/living room combo, superior air conditioner and whole house ceiling fan, open airy upstairs with lake views, WIFI, washer/dryer, large Refrigerator, clean carpets and it's easy to traverse house to the grilling area, boat house and water. Plus, great fishing for kids in the boat house... and the best part there is a ankle deep on a sandy bottom wading area directly in front of the house for kids to swim. We rented a pontoon boat from Gils marina, which is a must do for kids.. Outside there is a nice green lawn, perfect to run and play. A Boat house to fish and to store the pontoon boat and a grill and fire station to enjoy.
Somebody built a fire pit next to the water with the cement blocks that were used to separate the lake from the property, not a good idea...
Cons.... well I can't think of any... except, next time we will have dinner catered every night... I would rather the ladies stay out of the kitchen on vacation.... but it was like a magnet... they kept wanting to fix food..
There's plenty to do in the area, down the road there was a band playing on the grocery store porch and the place was packed... on the weekend.. Clayton, the closes town is 15-30 minutes away, depends on your route..
The house is a rental, I can't be in perfect condition because renters really are rough on the property.. It has a little wear... but totally acceptable... The price per night is very reasonable for what it offers...
My 8 year old niece already ask to go back next year.
One more thing.. I took pictures of everything inside and out to make sure we left it in the same 1st day condition. We started out with 3 pool chairs and 3 pool lounge chairs, they were all there until the weekend, a lounge chair disappeared and I was able to confirm it with the pictures.... very odd indeed...
2nd year for us renting this house. This year it was for the entire week and was WONDERFUL! The weather was perfect and we rented a boat for the week so our sons could tube/knee board/fish everyday. I love Seed Lake because it isn't as busy as the other lakes around and during the week, many days we were the only boat out. The house is spacious and perfect for lake living. And the view/lake access just can't be beat! It is just the perfect place to really relax and unwind. Our family truly hated to leave. The owners are extremely accomodating and super responsive. They really want you to enjoy your time there. We will definitely be back next year!! In the words of our 10 and 12 year old boys.......it was AWESOME.
Stayed here for the 4th of July with a group of friends. It was a great escape from school and work and offered something to do for everyone. Swimming, hiking, relaxing, and sightseeing were some of the things we enjoyed. The house was cozy and spacious. Slept our group of 8 adults comfortably. Could have easily slept more but it was nice to not be packed in. Overall was a very enjoyable experience and the home owners were extremely accommodating.
