About Cindy Greene

My family has lived in Cordele for many generations and we are so happy to now have a second home on Lake Blackshear. We purchased the home in the spring of 2013 and had many great times over the summer. Now we want to share it with others!

Cindy Greene purchased this house in 2103

Why Cindy Greene chose South Rivers Area

The beautiful lot is what sold us on this property. It has a nicely landscaped back yard with 110 feet of waterfrontage. The screened back porch overlooks the lake with gorgeous sunsets. The docks are ideal for relaxing as well.

What makes this house unique

I redecorated the house when we purchased it in 2013, it has a very charming lake decor! It also has a swing overlooking the lake, rocking chairs on the front porch, and nice deck furniture on the back porch for relaxing with family and friends. Addendum, May 2016 I added a bocce ball court

This house and location was perfect. We had everything we needed. Plenty of room inside and out. We brought our boat and had plenty of driveway space for parking. Lake Blackshear is a wonderful lake for fishing and tubing etc. We really enjoyed our stay. Looking forward to staying there again.

great view

  • 5 of 5

This lake house has a gorgeous view of the lake. Owner is wonderful. The bed was comfortable. Plenty of towels. I especially enjoyed the hammocks and I used their bikes for a bike ride. If you drink tea you might want to bring a tea pitcher. I bought one at the Dollar General. Overall we had a wonderful time.

property was clean with plenty of activities

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our Christmas stay. The weather was warm and rainy. The house was seasonally decorated and very comfortable. We enjoyed sitting by the fire both indoors and outdoors. Plenty of games, such as corn hole and board games. Kayaking was fun as well as sitting on the dock and watching the ducks swim and fly by. We also enjoyed walking to see the horses. We only got to see one sunset ( due to the weather) but we had front row seats!

I highly recommend this spot any time of the year for a quiet vacation.

Great Rental Property for a Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Every year for the last 13 or so years, myself and 3 other friends / co-workers spend a week in South Georgia to play golf and fish. This year we chose this rental house for our place to stay for the week. Couldn't have been more please with our selection. Great house, plenty of room, great views of the lake, and a fantastic fire pit that we enjoyed each night to brag about who played the best round of golf that day. Highly recommend this place if your looking for a nice house. Owners were easy and great to work with. No complaints. Would stay here again without question.

Fantastic Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family along with another family stayed here over the Labor Day weekend and we cannot say enough good things about our weekend. This was by far one of the best relaxing and stress free vacations we have had. The house was cozy and comfortable and very clean and had enough space for everyone. The property itself was amazing and the views were incredible. We enjoyed tubing, swimming, kayaking, relaxing on the dock and in the hammocks. Everyone even the adults enjoyed all the activities!! The fish were not very cooperative this weekend but still everyone had fun trying to snag one. Would definitely recommend this listing to anyone who is looking for great accommodations on the lake. We will be visiting again in the future!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at your vacation home. Could not have ask for anything better. This property is very clean and the location is great. This was our first time visiting this lake and it was very impressive. My boys caught catfish and bream right off the dock. We really enjoyed swimming, sunning, and jumping off dock. My boys also learned how to wakeboard before leaving. Even all the adults got a little tubing, knee boarding, and wakeboarding in. We spent morning drinking coffee with a wonderful view of the lake, boating all day on the water, and relaxing in the hammocks in the afternoons. This was a trip my entire family will remember and memories were made that will last a lifetime. Thank you for sharing your home with our family.

Enjoy dining at Daphne lodge or pizza at The Cove. The cypress Grill is nearby by boat or car and has live bands on many weekends. Cornelia's at the Retreat offers fine dining. Or drive into town and have a delicious steak at 16th Ave East
