Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Some friends and I stayed at the cabin to celebrate my birthday. The cabin was close to the grocery store and other local lake favorites. Everything was as described. We enjoyed sitting by the fire pit at night and looking at the beautiful scenery during the day. We are looking forward to staying here again!

Great location but lacks in upkeep

  • 3 of 5

We were only there for 3 days The location was great and because I brought my 18 foot boat we were able to spend lots of time on the water. The private concrete boat ramp was excellent. The dock was in need of some TLC. There are a few boards that are sticking up to catch your feet on. Fan / light in upstairs bedroom did not work nor did the fan/light over the kitchen table work. Once the sun goes down the kitchen table is a hard place to see . The TV control in the bunk bed room would not work. They may also want to call a pest control guy to give the whole place a good spray. Poor lighting over sink mirror in upstairs bath and the down stairs toilet runs so you have to chick it to drop the flap. Ok maybe I am getting a little picky but at 250 per night things should not fall into disrepair. With all this we had a great time. With a few little fixes this place would be awesome!

Best Cabin on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our 5th year returning, it must be love! ❤️ The cabin at the lake is just the right fit for our family of

5 adults and 4 children. We love the wide open great room, kitchen and dining area where we can spread out, but still be together! The kitchen is equipped with everything needed to prepare, cook and serve any meal and the dishes, glassware and cutlery were exceptional!

Several fish were caught from time to time, and the kids had a

ball playing in the water.

They also visited the Veterans State Park and checked out the dam on the lake.

Thanks for a great rental! 🏆

Hope to see you again next year! 👍

Everything was as advertised. We had a very relaxing time and would recommend as a quiet getaway.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very time relaxing on the dock and the lake view was calming. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed. The Veterans Park was outstanding with the B29 bomber and WWII tanks/weapons. We also went to the phone museum in Americus and did not expect much but was very impressed with the vast phone collection, switchboards and the way everything was layed out. We also had very good pizza in Americus at Romans Pizza. If you are looking for a getaway to relax on the lake and read or catch some rays on the dock without the tourists/crowds this is it.

Great Property for a Family Weekend at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We get together with my wife's family (two brothers and their wives and kids, inlaws) for a weekend at Lake Blackshear every year. They grew up around the lake, skiing and fishing in the summertime, so it is important to them to build those same memories with the next generation. We have rented several different homes over the years, but this was one of the best. The home is large and roomy enough to accommodate two or three families staying together (although I think it would be perfect for a family of four as well). We especially enjoyed the front porch area with its great view of the lake. The home has a great yard with room for the kids to play. There is a very nice, large dock for fishing, just sitting and watching the lake, or docking your boat. The home is also on the quieter end of the lake, toward the dam and away from the State Park. This makes for less boat traffic. The small cove right in front of the home is perfect for skiing. The home is very nice and well stocked but not ornate - it is a lake cabin and feels like a lake cabin is supposed to feel. Everything seemed clean and well maintained. Marc, the owner, was very easy to deal with and helpful.

In short, I would highly recommend this rental.
