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."

"What a wonderful alternative to a small hotel room with one bathroom. Roomy enough for a small group. Quiet peaceful complex with beautiful green space overlooking golf course. Easy access to downtown Athens and UGA. Offers fully stocked kitchen if you choose to prepare meals onsite, loved the welcome tin of snacks waiting upon checkin! Will stay here often the next 2 years while visiting our daughter in grad school. Owner was easy to work with and very quick to respond to emails. The entire process was seemless- from reservations, payment process, checkin instructions, checkout."

"My son and I visited Atlanta and stayed here. The locations was perfect. It was close to many places to eat, transportation (Marta and taxis) and most of the attractions. The condo was nicely decorated and had all the ammentities of home. I was traveling with a toddler (age 4) so it was important that our stay was comfortable. The owner was great at communicating with us before and after the trip and provided recommendations for places to eat and maps for our visits. I was extremely pleased with our stay and I am so glad we did not stay at a hotel as initially planned. Do not hesitate to stay here!"

"This was our 1st trip to Lake Oconee and we had a blast! House was perfect for our family of four and plenty of room for our three guests. Everything exactly as described and the owners were a joy to work with! The dock accomodated our boat very well and there is a marina close by. Look forward to staying again next year!"
