House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12 - 10 adults max)
Our family is originally from the South - Rebecca was born in Georgia. We have had the opportunity to move across our great country and live in Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida, New York, Maryland, California, Illinois and finally, back to Georgia! It has been a positive experience meeting new people, visiting historic landmarks and museums, and taking advantage of what each area has to offer. When Rebecca was growing up, her grandparents owned a drive-in theatre and she has warm, fuzzy and wonderful memories of her time watching movies on the big-screen, playing on the playground and helping make pizzas! Our decision to purchase a LAKE home was to provide our family with fantastic, warm, and endearing memories of our own. We love to ski, golf, swim, fish, boat, cook, eat outdoors, play games, ride bikes, etc... and we can do it all at 'Miles Away!'
Rebecca purchased this House in 2002
Why Rebecca chose Eatonton
After one trip to Lake Oconee, 374 miles of shoreline and 19,000 acres of spectacular recreational living, we realized what a multi-faceted gem it is! Rich in history and tucked away, this scenic resort area is one of the most beautiful regions of Georgia and represents the charm and grace of the old South with hundreds of acres of unspoiled nature at our doorstep. It is the state's premier golf and lake resort area boasting eight world class golf courses and is easily accessible to Atlanta, Athens and Augusta. An easy drive down I-20E, just over an hour will take you to the famous Master's tournament! It has some of the South's best boating, fishing and equestrian facilities. We appreciate the area's warm summers and mild winters. Miles Away is centrally located: the grocery, golf courses, Ritz Carlton, locally owned shops and boutiques, 4-star restaurants and southern barbeque are all within minutes. For more adventures with the family, the area has horseback riding, guided boat tours and nature trails. There are also special events such as music festivals, craft shows, fishing tournaments and holiday celebrations. What better way to make wonderful memories with your children and grandchildren than swimming, fishing, tubing, golfing, skiing, boating, cooking s'mores, playing games, building sand castles or just watching them do it all while you take the pictures and capture the memories!
What makes this House unique
Our family fell in love with the spectacular location, property, and main lake view - the large, flat lot with over 300 feet of main lake shore line looks across at breathtaking natural beauty and phenomenal sunsets. The large patio with grill and fire pit and small, but private, beach area are two very useful amenities. Miles Away is wonderfully stocked, which makes packing much easier, and we offer free wifi. The golf cart (available to rent) is nice for transporting everything back and forth from the house to the lake. There is a boat ramp one mile down the street and the closest marina is less than 5 minutes by boat. Quiet, comfortable and ultimate convenience - we love that Miles Away really is like a home away from home, where we can relax, renew and rediscover!
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
This is a beautiful home in a gorgeous setting. The water access is convenient to a marina and boat ramp. We spent sunrise to sunset on the dock and back deck. Terrific vacation spot.
