About James and Sarah Lewis

We built this home in 1984. We lived here until 2011. We raised our family here and have many fond memories. Our children have enjoyed fishing and hunting on the property. The land the house is built on has been in the family for many generations. We would love to open our home up for others to enjoy.

A Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this beautiful river retreat for a special family gathering. We had four generations from three different locations come together to celebrate a 65th wedding anniversary and a 90th birthday. Once we arrived, we were amazed by the spectacular view and all of the amenities. There were plenty of beds, linens, towels, and kitchen necessities for our needs. We didn't leave once during our weekend there! Everyone from the 9 year old twins to the 90 year old great-grandmother had a wonderful time. We spent our days fishing off the dock, swimming in the river, kayaking, using the rope swing, sitting on the big back porch drinking coffee, and playing cards at the large dining table. The house is decorated beautifully and nothing can beat the impressive antique heart pine floors. Sarah was very kind, helpful, and easy to work with. We could not have asked for a better location! We will definitely return for another relaxing retreat!

River lovin'!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Easter weekend here, the place is set beautifully on the banks of the Satilla river. We spent majority of the time on the dock and fishing the river. The kids enjoyed the rope swing and kayaks. We will be back!

Very private and serene Satilla River house

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean, and equipped with all the necessities (including kayaks). It has a great deck and dock in the Satilla River for chilling.

The owners are very accessible and ready to assist with any questions.

I would definitely stay there again.

Get away from everything...it's silent here!

  • 5 of 5

LOVED IT!!! The kayaks were a nice amenity, I only wish it had been warmer to take full advantage of the river! The home is large, beautiful, and QUIET! We will rent here again, and bring the kids for the next adventure!

Owner's Response: Nichole, We are glad you enjoyed your stay and took advantage of the kayaks. I'm sorry the weather was a little chilly, but at least that makes the firepit enjoyable in the evenings. It warms our heart when someone leaves and says they want to come back, because it means they had a good time. James and Sarah

Perfect getaway home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for week and enjoyed the outdoors. The property sits on the river and the owners provide two Kayaks that are really easy to use. We enjoyed morning and evening trips on the river for hours,VERY relaxing and quite. We had a fire outside every night, with plenty of firewood. The house is just as pictured and the kitchen is fully stocked with anything you need. Sara is wonderful to work with and responds within minutes. After Hurricane Mathew a tree and fell on the porch and Sara refunded my money THAT day ..After looking for another place nothing sounded as relaxing as this home. I called and spoke with Sara and the house was ready for our arrival and they even had a fire ready for us to light up!!! The house was PERFECT... We will be coming back ,and I can not express our thanks for all the work that was done prior to our arrival, our vacation was VERY RELAXING. THANK YOU SARA

Owner's Response: Tammy, It was a pleasure having you and your family as guests. I was thrilled the first time we spoke on the phone to find out you were excited about your plans to come to our home in the country in our secluded hideaway. It warmed our hearts that you were so eager to come, even after we told you of the storm damage. It gave us a renewed enthusiasm to get the repairs done quickly. You are all welcome back anytime.
