"The pictures on the website do not begin to do this place justice in all it's splendor. The house is well laid out with 3 BR upstairs and 2 downstairs which worked out ideal for our family of 6. The views from the upstairs veranda and simply beautiful as are those from the downstairs master bedroom. The pictures don't show the 2 car garage nor the dirt road to the house from the main road that is canopied with tall pine trees. It really is a hideaway home in a very private area of Jamestown village.
The house is situated on the NW area of the lake just around the bend from the Oconnee dam where great fishing can be enjoyed without concern for pleasure boating to disturb you. The water level varies throughout the day depending upon the needs of the GA power company as well as any rainfall that may require the lake to be leveled out a bit. A bit of caution about that process as it can really create quite a strong current you don't expect in a lake and the level can raise or lower a few feet in a relatively short time.
The water temp is perfect in August with good visibility. There are few homes on this area of the lake and in actuality the entire lake is not overbuilt at all so there does not seem to be a problem with any crowding.
We arrived after school year was in session form GA (Aug 10th) so that may have been a factor. From what I gathered most of the homes are vacation homes and a small percentage are rentals.
Please keep in mind that even the best rental properties will have issues simply because you and I rent it and not everyone has the respect for the area or home as it should be. There were some minor issues that we noticed and brought to the attention of Mr. King but none of them were problematic with the home itself. Mr. King is very prompt and helpful and is willing to find solutions that fit the moment. The kitchen is well laid out with two areas for eating. We found ourselves eating outside most of the time or at the counter. From the early rise to the evening the majority of our time was spent outside and on the lake.
The dock is very spacious with chairs and a mobile fire pit. one side of the dock does not have an overhang so if you are renting a pontoon boar this is where you will dock it. There are two hoists that are not for renters to use to lift their boat/jetskis out of the water. Rent your boat from JetShai (Chris Basswell) he deliver and dropoff. Shopping is far away so load up then stay put and enjoy."

"My family had a great week end get away at the Glover lake house this week end. The house sits right on the lake with a pier and a beautiful view. The house felt like home my entire family enjoyed their stay. Our favorite room was the sun room which was huge and had room for up to 25 people. We celebrated My wife's and Grand Daughter's birthday there."

"The lake house was absolutely beautiful. We spent 4 nights. The tri-level home afforded privacy when needed and was large enough to accommodate all in our party. The game room was a draw for all. Relaxing, fun, and stress-free. The screened in porch was a winner and the dock with slide was a hit with the kids. My daughter caught 4 catfish off the dock the last day we were there (all were caught and released.) Great place. Highly recommend it."

"We had a great time. Nice cottage. Futons were comfortable. Could have used a few more cooking utensils in kitchen. Otherwise kitchen area very nice. Great lake access and dock area. The only problem we had was insufficient space to maneuver will with truck pulling boat trailer to turn around at cottage parking. Otherwise will definitely be interested in coming again!"
