Guestbook comments from the owner

I just arrived back from overseas and wanted a place for my wife and children to get away and reconnect. This lake house was perfect. It is quiet with a very relaxing layout. The view from the den was great! The kitchen was well stocked and everything was so clean. The screened porch and deck are very private. Looking forward to returning to this spot soon.

Turtle Watch is FABULOUS!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 days and 4 nights at Turtle Watch and it was absolutely perfect!! The house is well stocked with plenty of room for multiple people. The screened porch was a favorite during the Thanksgiving meal Thursday because the weather was so nice!! Absolutely a must stay at in the Albany GA area!!

Quiet, great view of the lake, 5 minutes from Marina, great sleeping arrangements

  • 5 of 5

I brought 11 friends from college with me for the weekend. Everyone had a bed to sleep in (some people shared), the kitchen was well stocked, and the house was spotless when we arrived. It rained most of the weekend so the screened in porch was wonderful. There was a perfect breeze off of the water, and it was great to sit outside and play card games at night! When it wasn't raining, we caught fish off of the dock and went swimming. The boat slip was perfect for our jetski, too. It was a great weekend being together with friends. The house was just big enough to fit all of us comfortably but small enough to be close and enjoy time with each other. I would definitely recommend staying here if you have children of any age, want to have a girls getaway weekend, or just want to be with friends on the lake. I will definitely be renting here again!!! It was so great!

Girl's Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit so much and would highly recommend this home to anyone! We loved the open den,dining area and kitchen which opens up to the large screened-in-porch! All of this with an unbelievable vie" getaway weekend with 18 women. Although my brother had a much bigger home, we ended up using this as our "gathering spot" because of the layout and gorgeous view! With all the couches and the 4 beds in the finished basement, it would be great for a large family!!!

The home was clean and ready for us upon arrival. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. The kitchen was well supplied with dishes/pots/pans, etc.. There were many areas for us to split up and enjoy different activities. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds were quite comfortable. The downstairs bunk room with 4 twin beds and a TV was a favorite of the kids. Lots of room for adults only or families. The view of the lake is spectacular and there is a great dock for sun-bathing or fishing. Having a boat lift to put our boat on was great. The screened porch was quiet and private. Can’t wait to go back during the summer to enjoy swimming in the lake and take advantage of everything there is to do there. The Georgia Veterans park, golf course, Retreat and Marina are only minutes away. There are several great restaurants nearby. The Little White House, Callaway Gardens, Cheaha Park, The Little Grand Canyon, and the The Excursion Train are also close trips.
