Light, sunny golf cottage on Great Waters Golf Course/ Lake Oconee
"I think the first thing that really hit me about this cottage was the wonderful natural light bleeding in though the windows and sliding doors. It's the kind of place you can stay without feeling closed in on a rain day. Just a few steps off a deck set up for grilling, and you’re on the golf course.
From the master suite and from the living room, sunrise is breathtaking through the mist coming up off the green and pines surrounding the cottage. It’s not unusual to spot deer crossing in the early mornings. I’ve come back here a few times just to have a quiet place to work. It’s comfortable. I bring my own pillow, assorted devices, and my dog. We walk the path around the lake and it’s just gorgeous. There’s a shy blue heron that sits on one of the docks. A sudden move and he lifts up and flies to the next dock. He does this with no effort. His wingspan must be five feet. We always look for him.
The grounds are meticulously and constantly tended. The neighborhood is gated. And the rocking chairs on the front porch under the kitchen windows give you a sunset view. A light stream of golfers pass throughout the day. I don’t golf, but I’ve grown accustomed to the crack of the clubs connecting at the 8th hole behind the cottage, and the drink and sandwich cart quietly making its rounds.
The kitchen is stocked with non-stick pots, pans and plenty of utensils. If you’re a chef, bring your own knife and skillet, but all the basics are there.
There’s a smart TV in the main room to access Netflix and Pandora accounts, cable from UVerse and WiFi. Restaurants nearby and food delivery is available. Nice community. I always look forward to coming back."

"This home is truly beautiful and has everything you need for a perfect visit! The home is very large and every room is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The lake views are excellent and we especially enjoyed our time on the deck...... the lake setting is so peaceful and serene. Sharon was so easy to work with and always readily available. We look forward to returning and would definitely recommend this home for a wonderful visit to Lake Oconee!"

"This property was perfect for us. We loved the fact that the house was so well equipped with supplies, utensils, and top of the line appliances. The house was also very clean, and the neighbors friendly. We would like to have had a little shade out on the dock like all the other homes, but this definitely did not spoil our good time. The children had a ball running around the yard and the guys enjoyed the fishing. We would definitely stay here again!!"

"Not quite what we expected, it is on the lake. But NOT on the lake. The cottage is attached to the front of another building and you have no view of the lake at all from the cottage, unless you go outside and look downhill, then you can't miss it. All in all we enjoyed our stay, the lake is beautiful and very peaceful. The cottage is comfortable with all the amenities of home. And we enjoyed the best steak at Tumpies which is only about 20 minutes away. The owners seem to be very hospitable, we never saw them during our visit, but we are planning to go back and bring our children next time."
