About Deborah Johnson

I moved from Paris after 20 years to the Atlanta area to be close to my parents after my children went off to universities around the World. I own an apartment in Paris (Paris For A While!) that I renovated and manage as a short-term luxury stay. Enjoying it so much I wanted to do the same with a French Country Cottage in Atlanta., which I just sold after 5 successful years to buy this Lake House. It has been an immense pleasure decorating it in the French-style that I grew accustomed to and love.

I am also a Le Cordon Bleu Paris trained chef and currently work as a Corporate Chef for Vie de France.

Deborah Johnson purchased this house in 2017

Why Deborah Johnson chose Eatonton

Dreams do come true!

I fell in love with this lake house 7 years ago while visiting my dear friend Kathy. I dreamed of having a house just like it. A couple years later I bought a Cottage in Atlanta and it was a successful VRBO! Who knew?! I just sold the French Country Cottage in the heart of Atlanta to buy this (the ONE and only) Lake House in Reynolds Lake Oconee. Today , December 29, 2017, we closed, and I am relishing in my new adventure! Looking forward to sharing it with you!

What makes this house unique

Personally managed with all the attention to details.

A Cheese & Charcuterie Board with Wine for your arrival can be arranged for an additional cost. Just let me know.

The view is amazing, the best in the neighborhood!

So many relaxing spots to choose from to enjoy the view.

Fantastic location and house!

  • 5 of 5

Great big water views, very peaceful, dock right out back and beach, marina, and pool a few steps away. The house itself is super clean with high end furniture and decorations, but you will spend most of your time on the screened porch! Highly recommended!

Lost For Words

  • 5 of 5

Seldom am I lost for words, but in reading the previous reviews everything I could say, or want to say has been said. It would be appropriate to simply say “Ditto” to all previous reviews, but that would be an inappropriate way to express our appreciation to Deborah and her beautiful home. I like beauty, and I got it in the surroundings … I like comfort, and I got it in a beautiful home … I like outstanding views, and I got them sitting on the back porch … I like attention to detail, and I got it everywhere from the items provided, to the quality of the items, to the beautiful flowers. I guess I really am lost for words to say - Thank You Deborah for a most relaxing, wonderful experience and stay in your home ... you are an outstanding host.

Perfect lake house retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters, mother, and I spent 2 glorious nights at this beautiful lake house retreat. The house is perfectly appointed and very clean, with super comfy beds, pillows and bath towels. The kitchen is well stocked and even has basics like paper towels, napkins, foil/wrap, and oils and spices, etc. The view from the expansive screened porch is amazing...all you see is lake, no houses on either side. The pool is a short walk from the house as is the marina, where we rented a pontoon to cruise around the lake for a day. If you are planning a trip to Lake Oconee, look no further. This is the house for you! Deborah is wonderful to work with. Definitely get the cheese/fruit tray too. We ate off of it all weekend.

I enjoy working with each and every one of my guests to ensure the best experience and Oconee Lake Escape. A bientôt! Deborah

Most amazing home ever!

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from the Lake house! It was truly amazing! My family of 4 arrived with fresh flowers on the counter with a note from owner Deborah welcoming us to the Lake house! We ordered a cheese board from her and also had three bottles of white wine chilled for us! The home is absolutely breathtaking! Traveling from Tampa, Fl sometimes it's hard to rent homes bc you have to bring everything with you. The only thing we brought was ourselves. Deborah has everything stocked. The linens and her bedding are top notch! The porch that looks out to the lake is breathtaking! We ate out on porch every night! We rented a pontoon boat our whole stay! Having the dock literally 50 feet from house was so nice. Our boy's fished and tubed the entire time! I was thinking I wouldn't cook on our vacation we would go out to eat but never once did that happen. There's a propane grill and we grilled every nite ! The publix is 10 minutes away. Our boy's never wanted to leave! It was our first vacation we felt relaxed and ready to take on summer! The mornings with a cup of coffee was a pure joy. My husband and I got up early to catch the sunrise over the lake ! The birds and the view were so beautiful ! Being a mom of three boys with a busy schedule. My husband traveling so much for business, we truly caught up on life and our vacation was wonderful! The deposit was refunded same day we left. Deborah is running a top notch rental. Don't hesitate to rent!

Owner's Response: Tara, Merci!!! Thank you so much for your stellar review, rich with details and important points that made your stay so perfect. I hope all my guests will have the same experiences as you and your family. It is most important to me that my guests love this Lake House, feel like home and want to return again and again! I encourage guests to 👍🏻 Oconee Lake Escapes on Facebook, share photos of their vacation and sign my guest book! I so enjoyed seeing your photos (thank you for sending them), especially of your son and his fish!! Look forward to having you all return soon! Life is good at the Lake House!! Deborah

Beautiful home with awesome views of the lake

  • 5 of 5

Homeowner was great to work with and went out of her way to make sure that we were settled in her beautiful home. Beautiful lake views that put you right on top of the water. Can't beat this spot on Lake Oconee.

Absolutely none better! Personal attention to every detail.

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous cottage in the perfect place! The back porch is where you will want to live! Three generations celebrated my daughter’s college graduation. Grandparents on the porch; parents by the pool (you walk 20 steps to), and the younger ones in the lake (off the dock or at the walk-in Beach. All just steps from the back porch). The beds were the most comfortable I’ve slept in at a rental home. Thank you, Deborah, for all the extras you provide for guests!

Owner's Response: Lori, I am so thrilled that your family had the perfect mini-vacation for your family celebration. And congratulations to the Graduate! I love the porch too, also my favorite spot, and it warms my heart when others feel as good as I do when there. Please return anytime, you all are fantastic guests!! Warmest regards, Deborah
