Welcome to our beautiful "Lots To Do" vacation home.....Where fun filled days often finish around the fire pit as we share stories, stargaze, and refine our marshmallow roasting skills. This is the vacation home you'll want to come back to every year!
We have a young and fast growing family. We've spent years visiting Lake Oconee and staying at many properties and resorts on the lake. Some places were great, some not so much. We found that the location on the lake was critical to our vacation experience. The quality of the home, maintenance and cleanliness, stocked kitchen, big kitchen, laundry room, linen quality, slope of the property, dock size, dock quality, fire pit quality, interior decor, and lots of other items also play a big role in our enjoyment each vacation experience. It's true that "pictures say a thousand words" and our lake home is picture perfect. But you need more than pictures to give you the comfort of knowing the lake home will truly meet your expectations and make this a fun and memorable stay. We will spare you the details about all the nearby golf courses, historic towns, local parks, the spa at the Ritz Carlton, and other nearby amenities that you can research or ask us about. We will concentrate on the location and details of the home so you can feel comfortable and be able to confidently chose the perfect home for your stay.
Location, Location, Location:
Our vacation home is located only 3.7 miles from the Publix grocery store. Publix is located at 6350 Lake Oconee Pkwy, Greensboro, GA. Surrounding Publix you'll find the movie theater, restaurants, convenience stores, bait shop, and even medical and other professional services. You'll appreciate having a 4 to 6 minute drive when you need more fishing bait for the kids, extra drinks for the cooler, or decide to go out for pizza and a movie. The distance from any lake property in relation to the Publix Grocery Store in the Lake Oconee Village has a huge impact on increasing property values on the lake. We know that being close to this shopping district makes the vacation much more relaxed because it greatly reduces the amount of pre-planning and car packing needed prior to arrival. You can arrive at our home, get unpacked, and then make a quick run for groceries. Other properties may look close on the lake map, but you could find up to a 20 to 40 minute drive (one way) to the nearest grocery store. Our lake home is located near the end of a peninsula, in the heart of the lake where some restaurants have boat parking, and close to marinas with gas docks. Our neighbor’s docks are far away and have no impact on our beautiful big water views.
Inside The Home:
The Main Level has an open floor plan with great views of the lake year round. There's plenty of space for entertaining. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils, and dinnerware for at least 12 people. The kitchen is big and open. We have a sitting area off the kitchen with comfortable seating and built-ins with a HDTV and a wet bar. You find a breakfast table that seats 4 and a dining table that seats 8 adults or up to 10 if you have kids. The Hearth Room features a stacked stone fireplace and another HDTV. The Bunk Room is on this main floor and has 4 twin sized beds and direct access into the bathroom for this level. You'll also find a laundry room with full size washer and dryer and essential cleaning supplies and a vacuum in case of an accidental spill. The main floor has lots of hardwood floors and the living spaces are filled with natural light thanks to newer large windows and sliding door. Along the back of the entire main level is a spacious deck for plenty more outdoor living space.
The Upper Level is dedicated entirely to the Master Suite. Featuring a King sized bed, quality linens, HDTV, and a walkout "Juliet" balcony. The Master Bath has tile flooring, double vanities, a large walk-in shower that is fully tiled, and a large soaking bathtub. There is also a nice walk-in closet on this floor.
The Lower Level has two more bedrooms and both have Queen size beds, high quality linens, new patio doors with big windows looking out on the lake. The bedrooms have tile floors and from both bedrooms you can walk out to the large patio with great lake views. These bedrooms share a walk-thru bath and have their own vanities inside each room. The lower level also features a large media room with built-in cabinets, large HDTV, PlayStation 3, Blu-ray/DVD, Pool Table with Ping Pong table top and a large sectional sofa for game time and movie nights. We also have a 2nd refrigerator located on the lower level that comes in handy with food storage for large groups or when you want to keep cool drinks easy to access on this level.
Private Dock, Swimming, & Fishing:
Our permanent and private dock has a solid foundation and won't bounce up and down with each wave. Our dock is the maximum size allowed on the lake and it has a maintenance free composite dock surface. This means you cannot get wood splinters on our dock. The dock quality and dock surface is a really big deal if you plan to spend time on the dock. The dock has two aluminum swim ladders and the perimeter of the dock has guards to protect the edges of the dock from watercraft. We have a hose and shower at the dock. Plus we have an overhead light at the dock and a GFI power outlet on the dock so you can inflate water toys and plug in accessories. The water depth averages 9 ft deep at the end of the dock and our peninsula is open to the heart of the lake. Kids often have success catching nice bass from the dock because cool and deeper water is nearby.
Awesome Fire Pit and Outdoor Features:
The home is located near the end of the peninsula and the driveway comes off the cul-de-sac at the end of the quiet street. We often go for morning walks and rarely have a vehicle drive past us. Kids ride their bikes and play games in the cul-de-sac and we don't need to worry about vehicles. The driveway is level and there are only a few steps into the home. The property is very gently sloping towards the lake and is approximately .6 acres in size. Neighboring homes are also on large lakefront lots. This gives you nice privacy from the neighboring homes. The back of the home has a large deck and gas grill (we provide the propane). There is a smooth concrete path that brings you to the fire pit and the dock and the path allows you to roll a cooler and safely carry water toys between the home and the dock. The fire pit is beautifully built into the landscape and the chairs all sit on a nice level concrete surface that surrounds the fire pit (we provide the firewood). So even if it rains during your stay you can enjoy the fire pit knowing it won't be a muddy mess around the fire.
The Extra Stuff:
We have extra life jackets, towable tubes, skis, and wakeboard. They may not fit everyone, so bring yours if you’re particular about sizing. We keep firewood, propane tanks for the gas grill, extra linens, extra toilet paper, paper towels and trash bags. We also try to keep a stock of cooking oil, salt and pepper, extra spices, coffee filters, aluminum foil, and other essentials.
Mobile Phone Coverage and WiFi Access:
Inside the home and throughout our lakeside neighborhood you'll get great mobile phone coverage with all the main providers. The home has high speed internet and Wi-Fi.
Primary Renter Age Requirement:
The primary renter signing the home rental contract must be 32 years of age or older and must be staying at the property each day of the rental period. No more than 10 guests (including adults and children) may occupy the property overnight. This is our personal lake home that we visit and enjoy often. We have nice neighbors that live in the adjacent homes year round. We expect you to fully enjoy our home and all the amenities we offer while also being respectful of neighbors and being gentle with our personal property. Our lake home is great for entertaining, but not for partying.
