  • I wish I could live there forever......

    "At the last minute my Fiance and I decided we should go to Georgia for Christmas. This vacation would serve as my introduction to his family and as a much needed time away from the cold of Colorado. My initial conversation with Jack and all that followed were nothing short of convincing that “Tranquility Base” was the house for us during this important vacation. Jack and his wife were so understanding of course, that we wouldn’t have the payment and deposit to them 30 days prior to our stay, because we were booking with less than 30 days left, but we got it to them as fast as regular mail would allow. Check in time at “Tranquility Base “ is normally 1600, The Massey’s were aware that we were traveling from Colorado and due to arrive in Georgia around 11 am on the 25th of December and without having to ask, we were given permission to check in by noon. We found this very accommodating. With the purpose of this vacation causing me much anxiety, I was so pleased to arrive and find this lovely home exactly as we’d expected, very spacious and clean. I can not fail to mention how nicely decorated and well stocked it was with everything you would have at your own home, minus food, but we handled that. We even had treats on the counter, with a very thoughtful welcome note. Taking full advantage of all of the amenities, we had very little idle time. We fished, BBQ’d, made smores, played games, and just enjoyed each other. The visit with my new family was wonderful and I believe that “Tranquility Base” played a very important part in making it so. I’d secretly wished we didn’t have to leave and that this was our home, but we do have future plans to return."

  • Family Vacation fun

    "This was our second year at this home....GREAT location on the Lake and easy access from the house to the dock, especially for small children. Improvements on the screen porch were GREAT...we sat on the porch every day. Our main concern this year was the state of the dock, it was very dirty and full of spiders. My husband actually spent one day scrubbing the dock which made a huge difference. Every morning we cleaned the spider webs and we couldn't sit on the dock in the early evening b/c it was over run with spiders. Our other concern is the attention to detail the cleaning people have, there wasn't a shower curtain liner in the bathroom and the shower curtain smelled like mildrew. There were webs in the bathroom and the sunroom, some light bulbs were out. Even with these issues, we did have a great time...we may rent again next year."

    "We had a wonderful Thanksgiving getaway with our teenagers. The kitchen was fully stocked to make an amazing Thanksgiving feast. We loved the wood burning fireplace and played games by it. The beds were very comfy as well. Friday we drove to Greenville and shopped and ate an amazing lunch at Smoke on the Water. Highly recommend this restaurant. Mark, thanks for sharing your slice of heaven right on the lake with us. Maggie and Boogie (our pugs) had a ball too!!! Such a cozy, beautiful home, right on the water!"

  • Relaxing Getaway

    "We had a great time at the sweet cottage. We were able to bring our dog who loved to run around and watch all of the teenagers play in the lake. The cottage was absolutely spotless and we really appreciated that; sheets were clean, kitchen was clean, bathrooms were clean. The beds are really comfortable. The only complaint we had was not a very stocked kitchen for someone who really enjoys cooking for a lot of people. Overall, our experience was excellent and we hope to come back soon!"
