Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful stay. We have rented several lake properties and this has to be the most enjoyable and relaxing. The lot is so private and flat we

spent most of our time gathering outside and at the dock. Bring your yard games, as there is plenty of of room to spread out and have fun. An umbrella for the dock would be a nice addition, but there is plenty of shade at the

water's edge. A great place with all the comforts of home. We will

definitely try it again. :)

Wonderful, peaceful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay last week. The cabin was perfect for our party of 2 soon to be retirees and 2 doggy companions. We enjoyed sitting out on the dock each day and saw some spectacular sunsets. I even floated in the water a bit! The tennis court was in great shape and we had fun batting the ball around. The kitchen was well equipped as well. I'd say reality was a little better than the posted photos.

The part of the lake on which the cabin is located was very quiet in late Sept, which was just what we hoped for. We saw a total of 6 deer (4 just outside the lakeside doors), 2 herons at sunset on the lakeshore, and probably 10 or so dozen geese!

Our arrival instructions were easy to follow, and Tom was great to work with on everything. All in all we couldn't ask for anything better! We hope to come back!

The property was breathtaking! Secluded and surrounded by beautiful Georgia pines.

  • 5 of 5

We escaped Florida's Hurricane Irma and stayed in this wonderful cabin located on West Point Lake! The cabin was very comfortable and the owner, Tom, was extremely helpful and responsive to all our requests and needs! The property was secluded and even had a tennis court! We caught fish right off the dock, catfish, blue gills and crappies. Would definitely return to this great "gem" hidden in the pines.

Nice relaxing cabin with plenty of privacy and view of the lake.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is tucked back away from the road and is not visible from the road. It is also secluded from the neighbors. I though it was such a rareity to find a lakefront home without houses on both side of you. The property had plenty of shade for sitting outside. The cabin was supplied with everything you need for a family cookout. The bed that we slept in was very comfortable. The property was very quiet was private. The lake is visable from the cabin and is just a short walk to the shoreline. The spot was excellent for our family gathering. The kids entertained themselves with the tennis court on the property and swimming in the lake. The house sits on several acers of land in a natural setting. Everyone had a great time for the cookout and we created some great family memories at the lakeside cabin.

Tom, the owner of the cabin was a pleasure to work with. He made sure we had everything we needed and was very hospitable. He was easy to get ahold of if needed and wanted us to just relax and enjoy the lakefront living. He takes pride in his property and is awesome with great customer service (if you will, a dying thing it seems like nowadays).

We rented a pontoon from a local marine. The lake was bigger than I thought. When out on the water, if you did not pick out landmarks or use gps the lake was big enough to get a little lost.

We stayed with our two dogs while at the cabin. The dogs loved to swim everyday and jump of the dock to fetch their ball. the property was large enough for them to satisfy their exploratory curiosity.

Everyone had a great time and I would not hesitate to stay at the lakefront cabin again. We stayed there for a week and it was wonderful.

What can we say??!! This is/was the BEST CABIN.COTTAGE get-a-way ever! We have stayed in several different cottages and cabins that are dog-friendly on the water. THIS IS THE BEST EVER! Everything we love...this is the cabin. Photos do NOT to the place and area justice.

Let me tell you about a few things:

1. Dog friendly and does NOT smell like dog! Great job!!

2. The cabin is perfect size for sleeping 4...and we were only 2. The living room and kitchen were very spacious. The couch and chairs were very comfortable. The master bed was comfortable. Air condition worked great and we could regulate.

3. Kitchen is fully loaded, even w a small dishwasher.

4. Washing machine and dryer....def was a plus.

5. This place is only an hour away from our home....a home away from home.

Now let's get down to what we really love:

1. The water front!!! It was PERFECT for fishing!! The dock was perfect for sunning, or swimming or even trying our new Pelican boat.

2. The back yard STUNNING. Perfect for BBQing w 2 picnic tables and outdoor chairs/rocking chairs and an umbrella. We LOVED our stay.

3. Its seemed in the middle of nowhere however, Piggly Wiggly was only 5 minutes away for groceries. Also, a place 5minutes away to get fishing bait/gear. Stay away from "Kountry Korner" quick stop. They don's speak much english. Ugh.

This is/was our FAVORITE WATERFRONT GET-A-WAY!! We will be back!! If Tom ever plans to sell, we are the 1st offer in!! Great price! Great location! Great place! Chuck just wished he caught more fish!

We love this place and the fact our fur babies get to come along. Plenty of space, amenities, anything basically you need is furnished. A short distance to the dock for great fishing. The cabin is secluded and quite everything was great. Tom is a pleasure to work with.

West Point Lake getaway

  • 4 of 5

We spent three nights four days +- at the cottage...It is a nice size for (4) adults and we had two small dogs with us. Based on the time of year we knew it would be hot (it was) and on water temp the fishing would not be great (it wasn't) but despite that we had a very relaxing getaway. As an interior designer I always find it interesting how owners decorate these vacation homes. This one is unique since it had less cabin feel (on the interior at least) and more of a beach bungalow vibe. The furnishings were clean and comfortable and the beds better than most vacation rentals. The exterior could benefit from a general cleanup / pressure washing and sealing but the design was interesting with great visibility to the outdoors. Very secluded and this part of the lake far less busy that I would have thought.

Our suggestions for improved appointment might be:

Better flatware set

Pocket doors and bedrooms and bath need to be replaced as they are noisy during late night visits

Task lighting in kitchen rather than fluorescent overhead lighting

Wall mounted reading lights in small bedroom

More LED path lights on the path to the dock

Ladder on the dock

For the most part a very nice vacation cottage for the money and conveniently close to Atlanta...would consider visiting again with the weather is cooler and fishing conditions
