Greensboro cottage description

Charming, relaxing, and gracious. Serene, private and convenient. If these descriptions catch your eye, then this Great Waters golf cottage will make your vacation dreams come true!

Located in the exclusive Waterside Village in Great Waters, and part of Reynolds Plantation, this immaculate cottage lends itself to life on 'the links' quite well. Enjoy the large, screened-in back porch that faces the 9th Hole of Great Waters' award-winning golf course (when you're not playing golf with your own foursome). And for those in your party who are not golfers, the swimming pool,tennis courts, and marina are within a very short walking distance of the cottage.

The large kitchen-great room allows you to cook while having friends and family close by. A gathering table along with counter seating lets you serve a few or a crowd. Open the large doors on the porch to add even more room. Don't have tickets to the football game or golf tournament? The flat-screen TV above the gas fireplace will make you feel like you are a part of the action.

The master suite surrounds you in luxury. After soaking in the slipper tub or showering under the large rainfall fixture, crawl into 400-count sheets on the king-sized bed. The sitting area has a sleeper sofa with queen-sized mattress in case you have extra guests who just can't bear to leave, and there is a privacy screen to separate the sleeping areas.

With two more bedrooms and a Jack-and-Jill bathroom, this cottage provides plenty of room for everyone of every age. Kids especially love the two sets of bunkbeds and their own tv and dvd player.

The cottage has wireless internet and a Wii with several games.

The decor shows great attention to detail with an emphasis on golf and fishing, both sports being highly popular on Lake Oconee. Oconee is the second largest lake in Georgia, with a 376-mile shoreline. A shoreline cruise on a rented boat is a wonderful way to see this outdoor jewel. Reynolds Plantation has two full-service marinas and boat's can be rented.

Reynolds Plantation also boasts five nationally-acclaimed golf courses, and there are some courses that are open to the public so you can make your own tee times.

Venture away from the cottage to the quaint towns of Eatonton, Greensboro and Madison (named Best Small Town in America by Travel Holiday magazine) where you'll find restaurants, antique stores, local museums, shops, historic sites and gourmet groceries. And with the Ritz-Carlton Lodge close by, a day at the spa can become a relaxing reality.

So whether you want a family vacation, a friends' retreat, a romantic getaway, or a place to entertain corporate clients, this cottage is the perfect spot. Y'all give us a call !

NOTE: We are pet-friendly within reason. Your pet must weigh no more than 25 pounds, and you must have a crate available for your pet when you leave it at the cottage alone. There is an extra charge per night and also an extra damage deposit per pet. Sorry, no cats allowed due to allergies.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: My sister and I purchased this wonderful golf cottage in Waterside Village at Great Waters in 2008, did some upgrading (like screening in the large back porch, completely re-doing the master bath), and started enjoying the lake life. Both of our families love to golf and be near water, so this was the perfect spot!

                  Why the Owner Chose Greensboro:
                  Lake Oconee is a beautiful middle Georgia lake. It has so much shoreline and natural beauty to go along with the wonderful building sites and plantations. It is close enough to Atlanta, Macon, and Athens to be a comfortable drive, but it is also in the 'country' which gives you a sense of really getting away from it all.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  We are right on the 9th fairway of the Great Waters golf course. Everything is within walking distance or a short drive if you're lazy. The Waterside Village swimming pool and tennis courts is a short walk, and you can also use the pool at Reynolds Plantation. The lake is just a few hundred feet from our front door, and there is a paved walkway that seems to go on forever around the shoreline. Fishing from the shore or from the docks is convenient, and you're close enough to the cottage to walk back home. Waterside Village is quiet and off the beaten path, but there are lots of things to do and see. The cottage has a Wii and enough tv's for everyone to watch his own favorite program. The large kitchen and great room provide ample space for entertaining and playing.
