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."

"My husband and I had a wonderful time staying here for our anniversary. The location of the house is on a quiet secluded part of the lake. There is a secret fishing spot in front of the dock across the lake we learned about. The Dock at this place is awesome! Swings, chairs and some bream to catch. The owner is very nice and easy to communicate with. Would highly recommend this place for couple or family."

"Beautiful, romantic house, nice and private, with an excellent fireplace. Our host was appreciative and responsive and very nice to deal with. Our dog loves staying in a house with a big yard, and this was so much better than a hotel. We would certainly stay here again."
