About Roger and Connie Fredrickson
Roger is a retired disabled veteran who just loves a project. The house was one of those "Projects". I have to admit he did a really good job. Connie is retired and loves to fish and bird watch.
Roger and Connie Fredrickson purchased this House in 2016
Why Roger and Connie Fredrickson chose Elbert County
We lived in hectic Florida for years. We wanted peace and quiet and to be able to go fishing. A few years after our initial purchase we bought 3 more acres from our neighbor. The acreage had a little man cave that sat way off the road. As husbands will do, he wanted a project. So, after one full year he turned that ugly old man cave into a beautiful 2 br 1 bath guest house.

Lake Russell Angler's Retreat
Absolutely the handiest & best place to access Lake Russell in the area! Owners Roger & Connie are very accommodating & their place is brand new. Highly recommend!!
This was a wonderful place to stay on Lake Russell and Roger and Connie were very helpful in anything we needed . We had a great week of fishing on the lake. Anglers Retreat is also very close to the Elberton boat ramp and 72 Marine. Everything you need is within one mile which is very convenient. I would highly recommend Anglers Retreat for anyone fishing or just a vacation getaway . We will be back soon. Thanks for the great hospitality.. Dwayne.
Had a very nice stay!
The house is nicely laid out and furnished. Location is great, only a few mins from both Lake Richard B Russell and Clarke Hill. Really enjoyed talking with the owners. Will definitely be back!
We loved our stay
We, the O'Neills, have been staying at Connie and Roger Fredrickson's Angler's Retreat for an extended stay of six weeks while construction was started on our new home. We could not have asked for a more perfect setting. Everything we could have wanted was at our fingertips. Connie and Roger were wonderful hosts. They were helpful with local sights to see, directions to points of interest, grocery stores, bait shops, etc. and most important to us, their local for construction contacts. The house was stocked as though we were relatives instead of paying guests. The house is so nicely appointed; nothing was left out. We were very comfortable for the duration of our stay. There are multiple televisions so both adults and kids are accommodated. Honestly, we cannot think of a single thing they overlooked.
Home away from home
Roger and Connies neat 2 bedroom bungalow was exactly as described. Neat and clean. Very warm and inviting. Their southern hospitality on top of the excellent accommodations was more than we expected on this fishing trip. Close to Lake Russell and Strom Thurmond Lake. Looking forward to our next stay. We will be back!
WE LOVED IT!!!
AWESOME PLACE. THERE WERE 5 OF US AND WE HAD PLENTY OF ROOM! LOVED IT AND WILL DEFINATELY BE BACK!!
If you like Fishing and Hunting this is the place to be. We are in a very rural, country setting. Very quiet and peaceful. Great fishing and hunting. Elberton, GA is the Granite Capital of the World. The granite companies in Elbert County furnish over 70% of the memorial and cemetery monuments throughout the US. Abbeville, SC is approx. 25 minutes from Angler's Retreat. Abbeville is the location from which the Confederacy seceded from the US prior to the Civil War. There are several historical buildings throughout Abbeville, along with some of the best restaurants, antique and out-of-the-way-hard-to-find shopping locations.
