Ralaxing by the Lake

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time attending my daughter's graduation from Armor Officer Training at Fort Benning. A quick 25 minute drive to the main gate. The hosts were so gracious, taking us on a tour around the lake. We enjoyed the daily hikes in the woods around the lake, kayaks and fishing. There's a nice little beach area, and the host provides kayaks, paddle boat, electric motor boats and fishing gear. The water was a bit murky because of all the recent rains, but not so much we didn't enjoy swimming.

The cabin was small and rustic, which we expected. Don't go here if you're expecting a Hilton or Marriott, but if you're looking for a quiet retreat near Fort Benning, this is your place.

Abandonment, Filth and Dangerous Disrepair

  • 1 of 5

Upon arriving at 3pm, there was nobody at the property, no key, no map, no note, no bathroom. Later a family member arrived and called the owner for instructions. I confirmed that this was the cabin I was intended to be placed in. The "wrong cabin mixup" is an overused excuse. This cabin has not been cleaned for many many months. There has been NO family 🚨? Emergecy according to son.

Information packet, given to us states, guests clean the cabins so when you arrive expect filth, Rusty pots n pans without a handle, Knives ready to break out of the handle, dried food on dishes…

Brought own coffee maker, I don't like Moldy coffee grounds & bugs

Floors are layered food & dirt, bathroom gross! I can't post the pictures unfortunately.

NO MAINTENANCE! can't see over the uncut shrubs to see the lake, bridge boards are rotting, swings broke or ready to break, nails sticking out of deck, fishing poles have no or tangled line, bring your own, tackle is Rusty slimy. Where can I post pictures!

Deck chairs broken and breaking.

Scared free/roaming dogs to greet you, Keep your children's hands away! Dogs bark you awake and urinate on your outdoor belongings, poops on path. The owner's son stated he was there to only care for the dogs and was not told of any guests arriving, he stated his dad "walked out the door without saying a word" I asked if there was a family emergency and he assured me it was a planned normal baby delivery and visit.

The owner previously used the excuse of the "wrong cabin" but he's not going to get away with that with me. I spoke to other guests and their cabins were filthy as well.

I strongly do NOT recommend this location for kids because of hazards that requires judgment to avoid, Son said this is typical.

Did NOT appreciate opening up neatly folded blankets to be hit in the face with the worst smell of dog and feet stink.

Met the owner, made excuses that Didn't seem to add-up & evolved.

Creation & lake are beautiful but for a retired disabled veteran needing a break, This was disrespectful! We cleaned rotting food out of broken fridge & left cabin in better condition but I could not give my hubby a clean bed to sleep in and we were bit-up while we slept. Lots of cockroaches & spider nests.

Reported group of kids on property to son "all the neighbors are invited"

No grill tools, full of ashes, I told him first thing I wanted to do was to grill he said all I needed was the "food and bait." Not honest!

Owner's Response: Dorothy and I were called out of town for a family medical issue. My son offered to come in our place and I failed to provide him with instructions as to where to put the Pace family. He put them in the wrong cabin - one that had not been through a cleaning which we do after every guest. We do now have grill tools for every cabin.NO neighbors are invited unless there are no guests. This is a private lake for our guest only. The new swing is in. New deck chairs are in place. I did offer her a free visit if she would allow us to make her next visit up to the standards that our many guests over the years have enjoyed. Apparently, this was not good enough. In 10 years of rentals, we have not had a response like this. Benji Brumberg

My husband and I needed a break to recharge our batteries. We brought our dog. There are trails with benches. A creek, lake and treelined paths make for relaxing walks. The cabin was very comfortable. We definitely want to go back.

Private, Peaceful, a great place for a couple and their dogs.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 days over spring break to watch our daughter play collegiate softball at the Columbus Recreation South Complex which was about 25 minutes away. Having two fairly large size dogs we did not want to stay in a hotel. This place was perfect. It’s a cabin with plenty of room outside to let the dogs play, great trail around the lake, nice beach. The owners were exceptional and gave us privacy but were available when needed.

The cabin has a small kitchen with refrigerator, stove, and microwave. Big enough for the two of us. A nice bedroom with full size bed and attached bathroom. The shower had great pressure and we never ran out of hot water. The cabin was very clean. Also they had all the necessities needed.

No WiFi and cell single is better outside. I would recommend bringing movies either VHS or CD for the rainy days.

We had a great visit and would come back again.

Quiet & hospitality galore!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ellersie Lodge during our visit to see our son and his family at Fort Benning. We wanted something with a kitchen in a quiet location and we found this to be a wonderful spot! Benji and Dorothy could not have been any more hospitable! They went above and beyond so that we had all we needed!! We loved hiking the trails around the lake and just sitting on the porch listening to nature. The only suggestion I would have is to bring a Wi-Fi hot spot with you if you want to access internet and a Roku or laptop to have access to more than the 3 TV channels that come in. There was a DVD and VHS player also. We would definitely stay again.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

There are so many features that we love about this place! The owners are so welcoming and truly want for visitors to have a really great experience. Far enough to be quiet and peaceful yet close to everything. Our family took walks along the lake’s path, made camp fires and enjoyed sitting on the back porch just being with each other. Can’t wait to return!
