Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Donalsonville - Simple Pleasures

3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 8

This comfortable cottage is on one of the most beautiful lots on Lake Seminole. Enjoy the spectacular lake view while sitting on our two-seater swing or relax 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!

Very nice and clean.

  • 5 of 5

It was a nice quite place to stay for the weekend. The house itself was very clean as well as the yards. Had a very big yard to enjoy cookouts with family and friends. I really loved the view of the lake. The owners were very nice people to meet. The owners made sure our stay was as relaxing as it could be. Cassie and Buss are just good people to deal with. I had a relaxing time and plan to go back again. Thanks Cassie and Buss for everything.... Angela Owens

I'm for one loved the place. The house was very clean and relaxing. A very big back yard for cookouts. Beautiful view of the lake. Also had a very nice screened in porch out back with plenty of chairs. Owners Cassie and Buss were great people to meet and deal with. Looking forward to going back this year.

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as advertised! Very clean and inviting. There were lots of added amenities: towels, linens, games, pantry items! Very close to restaurants and Seminole state park. We fished right from the dock! Great place for a quiet get away. Owners Buzz and Cassie were terrific to work with!

Mold /urine

  • 1 of 5

First thing we opened door of this house we smell the mold and dirt, ,it has 3 bedrooms, 2 of them have old wood on the walls and smelled awful, ,like urine and mold together,,,first night husband and I slept in kids room on separate beds, but couldn't sleep since it stinks so bad ,we opened windows to get fresh air but still smells on mold, which was very bad for someone that has asthma, ,,I've bin traveling and renting cabins and homes for over 15 years,this one was the worst experience ever,,there is screened porch in the back yard,however it is not attached to the house,all the furniture in the porch was wet and VERY DIRTY. So we were not able to be in there ,,no chairs in the backyard to sit and relax ,,bathroom were very dirthy,bathtub hasn't bin cleaned in years,,same thing with kitchen,,only good thing is the pretty view of the lake,but again no chairs by the water so couldn't enjoy that either ,,second night slept in our car 😕😈😈😈😕😕😕😕 Please don't let the view and price foul you, ,it fouled me, and ruined my time off I had,had I known I would've definitely NOT BOOKED IT,,I'm someone that always leaves good reviews, ,and overlooks little things, but unfortunately this time very disappointed

Owner's Response: First may I say thank you for coming. We were glad to accommodate you at the last minute to assist in your stay at Lake Seminole. Our aim is to always please and we are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. We take pride in our homes and in 10 years we have never had a bad review. This home is professionally cleaned after each guest so we were surprised to hear of your complaints. We did have it professionally cleaned after your stay and there was no hint of the problems (urine, mold) that you mentioned. The last two guests have been pleased with their stay. There is a nice table with benches outside for your enjoyment. There is also a swing. The screened porch can get wet when it rains, but it is quite enjoyable when looking for a bug free zone with a beautiful view. We would be glad for you to come again and enjoy a free night on us.

Fun weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We had a delightful time in our cozy house on the lake. My husband and I brought our two dogs who loved the yard and especially liked looking out the big picture window. We weren't there much as we were visiting friends and kayaking but it had everything we needed for our short getaway. We even ended up meeting and having dinner with the man who is in the pictures holding up the fish he caught from the dock! We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and recommend this rental for a very comfortable and relaxing time. I especially liked the big fish pillow! And the master bed is very comfortable and that is saying a lot for me because I am a fuss budget over beds. Thank you, Cassie. :)

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for coming and taking good care of our house. The fish are biting. I talked with someone yesterday that had just caught 300 bream . That is crazy! The man you met caught those fish right off our dock. Come again when you can stay longer.
