About Rhonda

Our main business focus is cattle, our intentions for retirement is rental property. My husband has worked in the cattle industry for over 25 yrs, and we run a beef herd of about 100+ head of our own. Primarily we work for other farmers, therefore, being self employed, there is no retirement plan! Our goal is to get our rental properties paid for while we are still able to work. Hopefully one day we will be able to spend a few days at a time just enjoying the lake. Our home is located in Morgan Co., which neighbors Putnam Co.(location of rental). this allows for quick resolution of property management. It is my goal to help you have a pleasurable trip at Lake Oconee. This is my home lake, I will gladly offer any trip advice, i.e. restuarants - drive to in boat, entertainment ideas, swimming holes, local events, fishing holes; we enjoy playing on Lake Oconee with our children, and going to local concerts by boat at Blue Springs Marina. Sugar Creek Marina is located directly across the water from this rental which is pretty handy for everything. The marina's owner, William Clark, and his employees have allowed overflow parking at the store for our rental clients. They are good people.

Rhonda purchased this house in 2011

Why Rhonda chose Lake Oconee

This property was chosen mostly for convience. The property is close to our home which allows me to personally manage the rentals. It is located in Putnam County, which allows for vacation rentals, our home county (Morgan) does not allow short term rentals. Sugar Creek Marina is our home marina, therefore I am very familiar with the employees of the marina, and the area surrounding this home. The location of this house is very handy for just about any purpose, fishing, swimming, boating, golf, football games, just to name a few. Even though it is close to everything, it is quiet and serene to allow for escape from 'the real world'!

What makes this house unique

There is a lake side swing, and permanent fire pit. Good fishing spot at night, and swimming hole for the kids in daytime. There is always a good chance for wildlife viewing. I have seen deer, standing lakeside with us talking on the porch. There are eagles nest around the lake, I have watched an eagle fishing in our cove. Blue Heron are common everyday viewing. It is very calming. We have a blessed place, and I am thankful to the Lord for allowing us to caretake a piece of his paradise.

Our family had a blast at your house.. We loved the peaceful view of the lake.. Our big kids favorite spot was the game room garage! There was something for everyone.. Weather it was sitting enjoying the view from the deck or feeding the fish from the dock with our grandson and two firepits to enjoy smores.. We made wonderful memories with our family for thanksgiving. The kitchen is a bit small and the bathrooms are a bit out outdated but it's a house that has something for everyone to enjoy.. Thank you. I would recommend this property to everyone who enjoys recreation and relaxing at the lake.

Our family enjoyed the house for Thanksgiving. The game room garage was a hit with our boys..the view from the back of the house was picture perfect. Our grandson loved walking on the deck looking for fish. The perfect mornings and evenings outside. The kitchen is a little small, bath rooms upstairs bathroom needs a little work. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would book again this summer.

The lot is beautiful and the back deck is nice. However, the interior of the house is outdated and dirty. I'm not sure what they're doing with that too high cleaning fee. The furniture is uncomfortable. This house is NOT secluded. There are no window coverings on the windows that open directly onto the very close house next door.

pictures dont do this house justice

  • 5 of 5

a few friends, my special girl, and i stayed here for 4 days in august. this place is so much nicer than the pictures show. from the spacious garage with pool table, to the large front porch, to the double decker porches that face the lake, this place is in a word comfortable. The owner johnny and angie could not have been more of a pleasure to meet. the grounds are super nice and the dock has great fishing and a secluded nature. not to mention, it is straight across from the marina.too convinent.I will most diffenitly ask to come back. Thanks again cook family for allowing us to enjoy your house. much love to your family from ken parsons, mel rowland,mike lannigan, margret, and kevin.
