Restful Weekend of Fellowship with Family, Fishing and Football
"My family just finished a much needed retreat at this wonderful house! It was super clean and comfortable. My mom and sister in law suffer from severe allergies, and did not have a problem the entire weekend. We were thankful that the kitchen was well stocked with all the equipment needed to cook. The view was amazing, and the majority of our time was spent on the massive wrap around porch catching up. My brother spent the entire weekend on our boat fishing and completely enjoyed himself. The area was quiet and relaxing. It was a rural enough area were we didn't feel like we in the middle of town, but developed enough to get a decent morning jog in on the road. We had no problems with the wifi or TV and were able to enjoy a wonderful afternoon of college football. I wholeheartedly recommend this cottage."

"We were looking for something different than the usual summer theme park fiasco and this was the charm! This cottage style home is in a cove with it's own private dock. Lake is beautiful and so large...you can stay occupied on the water exploring, fishing, boating etc. We have 2 small children and it was great to get them involved in nature more. The general location of home and community is great....if you need to go to a larger city, Atlanta is less than an hour away but the surrounding small towns have enough amenities to give you a break from the lake and be a tourist. The owners have the home decorated very nice and homey feeling. Owners were great to communicate and deal with."

"Christine's timber home on a private peninsula was ideal for our family Christmas gathering! From the outstanding views to the peaceful moments on the dock, we loved our time here on Lake Oconee! Even on rainy days, we had family Ping-Pong tournaments and played games together. There sleeping accommodations were perfectly suited and there was nothing missing to make this a truly memorable stay! The house was clean, well organized and there was great attention to detail - we could tell how much love and effort went into this home. Looking forward to visiting again someday! Highly recommended!"

"My family of six stayed at Miles Away and had, quite possibly, the best vacation we've ever had. From the moment we arrived we were blown away by the serenity of the location and the warmth of the home. Also, the owner of the home personally met us to show us around and ask the children what water "toys" they wanted and showed us how to use them. This personal touch was unexpected but very much appreciated and really was just one piece of evidence about how much TLC went into preparing this home for guests.
If you're a boating or water sports enthusiast - or just enjoy reading a book by the lake - this is the ideal location. The home is situated on an area of the lake where there is little boat traffic and faces west so the sunsets are breathtaking. The home also features a perfectly manicured backyard that is perfect for playing ball with the kids.
I could go on and on about this wonderful home and amenities (pool table, hundreds of movies, multiple TVs) but the reviews speak for themselves. I've been to Lake Oconee a few times now and can't think of anywhere else I would rather stay."
