Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6

This comfortable cottage is on one of the most beautiful lots on Lake Seminole. Enjoy the spectacular lake view through our large living room picture window, from our separate screened porch or on the dock while you watch the ospreys, herons, coots, and turtles go about their day. Fishing is very popular on Lake Seminole, one of the top bass fishing lakes in the U.S. Seminole State Park is only about 5 minutes away and offers hiking, nature trails, mini-golf, a playground, and canoe rentals. The charming southern town of Bainbridge GA is about 22 miles away and offers antiquing, restaurants, historic homes, and even a super Wal-mart. There are several good local restaurants nearby accessible by boat or car. We'll be happy to tell you about our favorites. If you bring your boat, our front semi-circle driveway offers easy parking and there is a public boat ramp a quarter of a mile away. You could also tie up a couple boats at our dock. There's even an 18-hole golf course nearby. Come enjoy the simple pleasures!

About Cassie Stephens

We are retired educators that love to travel. Each trip takes us to new places and new people but we seem to always return home being thankful for Lake Seminole. We love sharing what we have at Lake Seminole with new friends so they can fall in love with this unique spot too!

Cassie Stephens purchased this house in 2006

Why Cassie Stephens chose South Rivers Area

This property is tucked away on a quiet road with 2 acres of privacy. At the same time we are very close to the boat ramp, state park, convenience stores, gas and restaurants!

What makes this house unique

The 2 acre lot, 100 ft dock, separate screened porch as well as outside eating make this property a great stay! We have been blessed to host fishermen, gator hunters, duck hunters, boaters, skiers and people who just want to relax and enjoy nature. We have seen deer in the back yard and can always hear birds singing.

Peaceful with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was very peaceful and relexing with beautiful views of the lake. The property was well maintained inside and out, clean and comfortable. We encountered no issues during our stay, and will definitely return. The owners were very accommodating and obviously take pride in their property. Thank you both!

Owner's Response: Thanks for coming and taking good care of our property. We love the views too, especially the sunrises. Please do come again. We are only an hour from Tallahassee but after a few days at the lake it feels like you've been on a long vacation. We love Lake Seminole!

Perfect to get away from the busy life we live!!

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, cozy and big house. My family loved it. Especially the big backyard and lake to fish from. We got to see one deer one morning and also a fox the following one. Very country city which is perfect for getting away from the hustle and bustle life we live. Looking forward to come back. Cassie was kind enough to leave us stay an extra night which was a last minute decision. Thanks a lot for that!!

Beautiful lake lot, large grassy yard

  • 4 of 5

Cassie was very easy to work with setting up the rental time, promptly responding on all communication. The property is lovely, a large lot with plenty of space for my grandkids to play and run around without being too close to the dock and the water. the house is well laid out and even though bedrooms are small they were certainly large enough and the beds were comfortable. We didn't cook at this house, but it seemed to have what you would need. Even though the road had other homes on it, we did not see a single other car on the road, so quiet and private. We had two houses on the lake, one that belongs to a family member and they have a boat that we could pull alongside the dock at Cassie's place. That worked out fine although, the dock is not great, it was certainly sufficient for what we used it for.

Our only complaint was that there must have been a miscommunication about when we were coming. There were no sheets on the bed and it looked like the previous group had put laundry in and it was still there. WE just took care of it and we can obviously put sheets on a bed, but it was a bit of a disappointment. That's why there are not 5 stars. Otherwise it would have been. It's on a larger part of the lake and easy to get to also.

Owner's Response: Thanks for coming and yes!,,,, we goofed on getting it ready for you. First time in 12 years of renting that we read an arrival date wrong. So glad that it did not ruin your stay. Come again so we can greet you properly with all the beds made and ready for you.

Peacefull!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to supplement a larger property the owners have for our family reunion. The home was clean, comfortable, and the picture window overlooking Lake Seminole was awesome.

Small town setting-quiet and quaint

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the small town setting, away from everything. The home was warm and inviting-cozy and quaint.

I feel responsible to address Senada's review pertaining to the smell, because I was very hesitant to book. On the first night, there was a slight odor of maybe stale air, and as time progressed, I did smell a faint odor of urine on the right side of the home, but by morning the smell was gone, or we were nose blind. There were some roaches in the kitchen and bathroom areas. We booked a 3 day stay, but left on the 2nd day.

Owner's Response: We value all reviews and work hard to provide the best accommodation at the lake. The house is not lived in full time so when it is locked up for several days I understand a stale smell. I am glad it went away once the air was on. The other complaint is a puzzle. After each guest we have the house professionally cleaned. The house is under a pest control contract and is sprayed on a regular monthly basis. They will come back if we see or have any spottings so thank you for letting us know. We assume it is fine unless we hear. We have a call in for them to return immediately. They tell us it's been hard work this time of year to keep pests away at the lake. We hate that you left early but appreciate the way you cared for our home. We hope you enjoyed the improvements we have added, especially the screened porch. We welcome you to try us again.
