Overview

Lake Oconee House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

'Reynolds MilliLago House' is a four bedroom, three and a half bath, 3500 square foot home which is conveniently located inside Reynolds Plantation with over 100 feet of lake frontage on Beautiful Lake Oconee.

Reynolds Plantation is a 1500 acre vacation development with 80 Miles of Shoreline on Beautiful Lake Oconee. Reynolds Plantation has been named by the Robb Report as 'The Best of the Best' in Golf Resorts in the United States with 2 of the courses being heralded as the Top 100 courses in the United States by Golf Digest Magazine.

While the golfers in your group are enjoying themselves on the 117 holes of golf available (18 more holes are being built), you can enjoy the peace, serenity and the soulfulness of the Ritz Carlton Spa which was named one of the Top 5 Spas in the United States by Conde Naste Traveler Magazine. While you are enjoying your day, your kids will love the fun and friendship of Reynolds Kids Camp or the Plantation Pool, Plantation Playground, Great Waters Pool, or the Reynolds Plantation Nature Center where they will be able to see all the animals of the area.

For a day filled with fun for the whole family, put your bathing suits on and take your clubs and cooler down to your private dock at 'Reynolds MilliLago House.' You can take a 5 minute boat ride to the Cuscawilla Restaurant called Waters Edge and then take the boat to Great Waters for an afternoon of playing and lounging by the pool, playing golf at Reynolds Great Waters Course or just hitting the range. After all of this, you can enjoy a great dinner at Great Waters or take the boat around from Great Waters to the Ritz Carlton (13 minute boat ride).

After a day filled with fun in the sun, you will enjoy winding down at the award winning Restaurants of Gaby's by the Lake at the Ritz Carlton, Linger Longer at Oconee Clubhouse, or some of the finer dining outside the gates of the Ritz Carlton at Filet's (2 Miles) and Silver Moon (5 Miles). Or you may want some casual dining at the Mellow Mushroom (7 Miles), Hugs (7 Miles), or Ice Cream Shop (7 Miles). Alternate favorite activities are dancing to the Jazz Band at night at the Ritz Carlton, Clay shooting at the Shooting Range (10+/- Miles), playing tennis at the tennis club (2 Miles) or hunting.

However, if you want to lounge at the house, you can fish from your private dock, cookout on the deck, or enjoy the many movies and shows on the 50' High Definition TV. 3 TVs are in 'Reynolds MilliLago House.' If work or the internet is your passion, bring your laptop as we have a wireless connection to the internet.

We completed a $200,000 renovation in April 2007. The renovation included new wide-plank distressed hardwood flooring through out the main level giving the entire house a prestigious “lake home” feel, fresh paint with designer colors on the interior and exterior, new front door and front facade with copper brow, new kitchen with new appliances, granite countertops, new carpet downstairs, updated lighting and plumbing fixtures, new bathrooms featuring frameless shower and floor to ceiling tiling, and much more! Renovation was overseen by a well known Atlanta Decorator. New landscaping was included in the plan by an award winning landscape artist. and a $50k upgrade in February of 2015 which included the installation of a firepit, more landscaping and an updated kitchen with many new kitchen appliances and utencils.

'Reynolds MilliLago House' is located inside the gates of Reynolds Plantation and is convenient to everything that Reynolds Plantation has to offer: 2 miles from the Ritz Carlton, Ritz Spa, Oconee Golf Club, Tailor Made Performance Lab, Gabey’s Restaurant by the Lake at the Ritz, Georgia’s Restaurant at the Ritz, and Linger Longer Restaurant; 1 Mile from the Plantation Golf Course, Plantation Clubhouse, Plantation Restaurant, Plantation Swimming Pool, Plantation Tennis Courts, Plantation Basketball Court, and Plantation Kids Playground, 1.5 Miles from the Reynolds National Course; 2 Miles from Reynolds Landing Course; 12 Miles (7 minute boatride) to Reynolds Great Waters Course, Reynolds Great Waters Clubhouse, and Reynolds Great Waters Swimming Pool; 3 minute boat ride to Coscawilla and Waters Edge Restaurant; 5 minute boat ride to Reynolds Marina.

About Mark Kessler

My family and I visited all the nearby lakes when we were searching for a lake home and fell in love with Lake Oconee and Reynolds Plantation. We wanted a place that had something for everyone so that all of our family could enjoy it and Reynolds exceeded our expectations! They have golf of course, the lake water is a great temperature for swimming and water activities, the lake traffic is minimal, they have The Ritz Carlton fully equiped with a spa and great dining, they have all sorts of outdoor activities and nearby shopping for convenience as well as quaint nearby communties. It really is the total package! We lived in our lake home for almost a year while our home in Atlanta was renovated and really got to know the community. It truly is the most relaxing place for us and so close to Atlanta!

Mark Kessler purchased this house in 2011

Why Mark Kessler chose Lake Oconee

Reynolds Plantation provides the peace and serenity for family bonding that we wanted in a lake home environment. Our lot is a very private lot with its own dock that allows for fishing and swimming off the dock. However, Reynolds Plantation also provides a lot of infrastructure when you are ready to do something fun, including, boating, swimming pools, 7 of the best golf courses in the south, miniature golf, movie theatre, sporting clays, many bars and restaurants available by boat or land, not to mention the Ritz Carlton. In short, we felt like Reynolds Plantation and Lake Oconee provided something for everyone to enjoy their family vacation.

What makes this house unique

More specifically in regards to our home- we love the location- it is near everything but is located in a quiet cove off the more travelled areas of the lake. We also love the lot- it is over an acre which allows our children to explore and have lots of room to play. The floorplan is another added benefit to the house, it is great for entertaining because the main area is spacious and open with the master on the main, vaulted great room, open kitchen which all doors open to a large partially covered deck that overlooks the tall pines, dock and water. We decided to completely renovate the house in 2006/07 which has given it a fresh, updated, sophisticated lake home feel with all the modern upgrades which has made us love it even more!

A wonderful place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 (6 adults, 4 children 9 to 15 years old and 2 toddlers) recently completed a wonderful 4 night, 5 day stay at Reynolds MilliLago House. The location was extraordinary. Being in Reynolds Plantation it is just a relatively short distance off of Rt 20 and had access to terrific recreational amenities both in the Plantation and near it. We did horseback riding, pontoon boat fishing and water skiing/tubing along with, of course, swimming in the lake off of MilliLago’s dock. Additionally the home was about 3 miles from a Publix, CVS and gas stations; and there was an ample selection of very good, reasonably priced restaurants within 15 minutes of the house. Beyond the general location, the home itself was nestled among the trees, was right on the lake with easy access to it and easily accommodated the 12 of us. Both the upstairs and downstairs were quite spacious, clean, well maintained and well-appointed with the ample space to congregate as a family. The kitchen was also quite adequate to handle a large group. Lastly, the owner was very responsive to questions and issues that arose from the initial booking through the end of our stay. When we return to Lake Oconee we definitely plan on staying here again and would recommend it to friends.

Beware

  • 2 of 5

I attempted to rent this home 2 times. The first time I backed out because the entire back of the house had rotten wood, which they addressed and took it off the market to repair. The 2nd time, I could only stay 1 night because the house smelled like smoke and mold, specially in the downstairs area.

If you have allergies, ask if this has been resolved.

Owner's Response: We apologize for any issues you have with renting our home. We take your comments to heart and want all of our clients to have an incredible visit to our lake home. Any complaint that we have had via VRBO, we have spent a lot of money to resolve. In the last 2 years, we have done over $40k in maintenance to the home. We will do the same with this complaint if any maintenance is required. We have not had a complaint like this before. However, I did check with my cleaning crew and they said that they have had other properties in Reynolds Plantation that they service who had mildewish smells in the homes due to all the rain that we have had in Greensboro (it rained 13 out of 17 days in late December). The cleaning crew prepared the home 2 days before your arrival and did not notice any unusual smells. They did comment that the ground outside was very saturated due to the heavy rains that we had prior to their cleanings and it rained for a couple of days very hard after they cleaned and before you checked in. I have sent my property manager out today to examine the property and get back to me with a report and any things that he would recommend. I will post what my property manager finds out and will repair anything that he recommends to repair. Lastly, again, we take any guest complaint seriously and want all of our guests to have a great experience with our home. Thus, we would like for the guest who posted this comment to come to our home at no charge for his / her next week long visit and will give them a 50% rebate from the visit that they took with us this year. Please contact us to arrange the 50% rebate of the money you paid to rent it.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

My family of nine have just returned from a five night stay at this house. We were completely satisfied. The house was just as described and we found it clean and comfortable. The accessibility to the lake was just right for the younger one who enjoyed the water. Definitely recommend it and will consider it next year.

Very Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

I wanted to give you feedback on our recent stay this last weekend.

I have to say I was very disappointed with our accommodations as it was terribly dirty, floors look as if they had not been mopped, dirty dishes put away in the cabinet, the shower head in guest room was broken, the MB window on the right was left open with bugs flying around, the patio top and bottom had not been spring cleaned…. it was absolutely unbelievable, spider webs, bird poop etc. etc.

Bottom line is I spent most of my time upon arrival cleaning and not enjoying the once beautiful house. There were two trash cans that were left at the top of the driveway with trash that had not been picked up unfortunately as well as a garbage can on the side of the house was full of trash and magets as well, not sure why trash had not been picked up. With all this being said we had nowhere to put the trash. Also, since the propane tank at the house was empty we had to go buy a propane tank since all our meals were planned out to be grilled. Also, there was a fridge in the garage that is full of mildew!!!!! And the garage had not been cleaned who knows how long? I am not sure who is doing the cleaning of the property as it appears it has not been cleaned very well for some time? Has the property has been abandoned?

Anyway, just some feedback for the owner and future renters. There are better homes out there for you to stay in as I will not stay at this location again.

Owner's Response: UPDATE JAN 2016: Since your comments, we have spent over $40k: replacing all the windows;, Stripped and varnished the floors, restoneed the front porch, replace the outside light, home was power washed; paint and reseal the dock, bought over $3k in kitchen ware and appliances, installed new washer / dryer; bought lake toys for our guests enjoyments (corn hole, bikes, big wheel razors, footballs, soccer balls, etc); added some art; added a new $750 Weber Grill; and added a fire pit. To be more proactive, we have also contracted with the garbage delivery to pick up at the house, rather than at the street just to make sure that trash gets picked up every week. As a token of your appreciation, we would like you to revisit The Millilago Home free of charge for a long weekend in 2016 and see the positive changes that have been made. Let us know when you would like to revisit our home....free. This feedback has been the catalyst for improvements that all other tenants enjoyed in 2015 and we appreciate the feedback. Thanks again! SENT JUNE 2014: Thanks for your very candid input. The owners have met with the cleaning crew via phone and read your message. They are also going on site this week to meet with them in person and establish a checks and balance on the cleaning after the fact. While onsite, the owners are getting bids from their maintenance / construction crews to: replace all the windows that have issues, Strip and varnish the floors, restone the front porch, replace the outside light, put dry below under the decking of the porch, stone the back porch walkout, paint and reseal the dock, and add a fire pit. Most of the work is being scheduled for the first week of July. Owners have already contracted with the garbage delivery to pick up at the house, rather than at the street as the problem occurred with tennants were not taking trash to street. Owners have already contracted to have the home power washed and have had the garage totally cleaned out. Additionally, the refrigerator was cleaned and donated to charity and we hope that it will find a good home to a needy family. We want to make The Millilago Home an enjoyable home for everyone that stays there. Out of more than 50 tennants int the past, you are the first person to provide negative feedback. I can't tell you how much we appreciate your candid feedback. As a fellow property owner who has properties listed on VRBO, we know that you will appreciate how valuable feedback is.
