About the property

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!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend! The house was exactly as pictured and described. It was very comfortable. Kitchen had everything we needed and more. The property is beautiful. I especially enjoyed the hammock. Wonderful lake access with a boat ramp right down the street.This is a great place to relax and rejuvenate! Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thanks for coming. We think we have one of the nicest lots at the lake. The two acres give plenty of room to enjoy outside. Being close to the public landing is another plus. Come back. We love repeat guests.

Great place to relax and enjoy the lake views and fishing. House on big lot. We actually had some deer walk through the property. Lots of space indoors and out to accommodate our group.

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!
