Private bath in Mster King Bedrm. Fully stock kitchen & all on the Lake. Quiet community, Direct TV -LR large screen & Mstr bdrm. Bring your fish fryers and set up in our beautiful back yard for your Fish Frys. Come create new Fish Tales to take home and share with Family & Friends.

Responsive private owner. Large back yard, plenty of parking for multiple rigs, quiet neighborhood. All on the water. We are located in the Backwoods of SW GA, not a big city or beach front, but our guests come here to get away & enjoy the relaxation that Nature provides, along with all of our local merchants, small towns and Welcoming Atmosphere of Lake Life. So if you haven't been to Lake Seminole before please take a moment to see why so many others love staying here.

What makes this house unique

Lake Front House, We really are on the water! Lake Seminole's Spring Creek Channel. Includes Private Covered Oversized Boat Slips/Dock with Electricity & Running Water, fish clean station (fish/rest-relax/enjoy & explore our local area). Great fishing right off private dock. Beautiful views of Sunrise off dock. Lots of privacy and quiet neighborhood, grill/fry in your own back yard. Lake Seminole, GA hosts multiple Bass Tournaments and other fishing tournaments year round. Or come to relax & enjoy our local Lake Community where our merchants will welcome you as a local. Take a day trip to enjoy our small towns with quaint shops or take a trip to one of our local SW GA Winerys. Or hang out & fish right off your private covered dock. Large enough inside & yard for great family gatherings. Great rates which are set up for smaller groups to pay less than larger groups. Better than any motel/hotel & always very clean lake house. Compare our rates with Seminole State Park Cabins (which have no private docks). You will see why we enjoy so many Repeat Guests here @ our ole beloved Southern Comfort. Located Only 1 mile from Big Jims Oyster Bar, where our guests are treated like one of the Locals, a wonderful family place to dine out on the water. It's also the closest public boat ramps to the property. Can put in there & come back up the channel & park in your own dock covered with water & electricity. Very convenient to step out early am & head out as the fish are literally jumping in front of dock, without having to put in first.

Seminole Fishing Trip 2018

  • 5 of 5

I greatly enjoyed my stay and the boat house was exceptionally well situated and a safe environment for my boat. Neighbors were friendly and accommodating. My only suggestion for improvement of the experience is for the owner to post the address of the property on the mail box or affix numbers to the house. As the web description does not include a photo of the house and no address numbers are displayed on the property, or even on adjacent properties, it was very difficult to locate the house and would have been nearly impossible after dark.

All we hoped it would be.

  • 5 of 5

The home was easy to find and the view out the windows was amazing. The bed felt like I was in my own each night. Sitting on the dock and just enjoying doing nothing was great. We had a few turtles keeping us company and a baby alligator made a quick visit. Spent a lot of time traveling the area and loved it all. Can't wait to retire and move there!!! It really was everything we had hoped to find.
