Christine or Drew May purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Christine or Drew May chose Appling

Drew and I have a busy schedule so when we have some time for ourselves, we love the peaceful setting, away from the hustle and bustle. The lake house is a place where you can get back in touch with nature, recharge the batteries. Drew is a great angler and I LOVE watching him reel in the big catch. Our kids love to go tubing and jet skiing. It's a place where the entire family gets together to have fun and enjoy each other's company.

What makes this cabin unique

Close to great fishing spots... and boat ramps.. It's only 15 minutes from Evans for convenient shopping.

Nice place

  • 2 of 5

Cabin was very clean, didn't like futon bed not comfortable .Wanted to fish but water was very low, wasn't told until after paying. Doesn't have a cabin feel or a lakeview, have to go around cabin and main house to see lake.Wasn't what we were looking for.

Owner's Response: Hello Dana: I am so sorry that the cabin was not what you had in mind : ( And I hope you still were able to enjoy your stay :) As mentioned, we do have another house with dock in the same cove that is always on deep water and you were welcome to use that. For other travelers reading reviews - if the water level is important to you - please contact me ahead of time and I will let you know a website where you can check up to date levels. Again - we do have a dock within walking distance door that is available to use.
