About the property

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, a playground, and seasonal 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 Donalsonville

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.

Quiet Christmas Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The property was lovely, comfortable and had a great view of the lake from the house. The house was clean, except for a couple dirty towels that were left behind the bathroom door and there were used tissues under the pillows in the bedroom. One major safety issue. When you walk into the main bedroom on the right, there is a rather big step down into the room. There needs to be some sort of warning or alert to that. It was not expected when going into an unfamiliar house and my stumble could have been a lot worse.

All in all it is really a great lake house and we were not disappointed at all!

Owner's Response: Thanks for coming and taking good care of our house. So glad you enjoyed the beautiful lake view and felt comfortable during your stay. We will make note to our house keeper about the items that were left unattended. We do have it cleaned after each stay. We appreciate your suggestion about the step down warning. We will post a notice. Thanks for coming. We would love to have you come back.

Thanksgiving Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family booked this property for a Thanksgiving gathering. There was plenty of room outside to enjoy the outdoors, as well as plenty of room inside to be comfortable and enjoy being out of the weather when we had a bit of rain.

Large yard is great for being outside especially with younger children

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time to stay at this cottage in D'ville. The large yard is the winner. Great views of the Lake, but especially a large area for my grandkids to play without being too close to the water. Lots of nice trees for shade and to hand our hammocks.

Cassie is wonderful and we'll be back again.

Quiet private lake house on Lake Seminole. Wonderful location and huge yard.

  • 5 of 5

Great getaway! House is pleasant and has all the necessities. Loved that house is on a quieter cypress lake with dock and easy access to big water of Lake Seminole. Nice boat ramp only 1/4 mile from house. Home has large grass yard with trees. Enjoyed the backyard screen room while watching lake and wildlife each morning with coffee and every evening with cocktails! Cassie was very easy to work with and we hope to return again soon for another visit. This is not a new fancy home, but a well maintained family lake house that they are kind enough to let people rent and enjoy at reasonable price...and we enjoyed our stay!!!
