About Steve & Lana Kollross

We moved to Georgia in 1986 from Wisconsin, which is where we learned the value of lake property. We promptly investigated the major lakes in GA and came to the conclusion that gorgeous, quiet Lake Oconee was the place we wanted to be. We bought our 1/2 acre in 1989. Being newlyweds, we couldn't afford to build anything on it right away, so we started small with building our dock and getting our boat. That way we could enjoy the lake. In 2001, with 2 young boys, we built the main level of the cottage and left the upper level unfinished. Steve put his handyman skills to work to finish out the upstairs over the years. In 2016-17 we finally built the garage, added a driveway, and improved the landscaping with the beautiful terraced patios you see now. We are so happy to share our piece of heaven!

Steve & Lana Kollross purchased this house in 1989

Fantastic lake home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend stay at the Kollross lake home. We hosted our annual family reunion, and the home was perfect for our three families. Plenty of sleeping accommodations, and space for everyone. Our family ranges from 70-year olds to infants, and the home has something for everyone. Lots of water toys and games. Great fire pit. We grilled one evening and ordered pizza from Luigi's the second night. We rented a pontoon boat, which I highly recommend. Great lake for cruising. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer! We would certainly rent this home again!

Wow, just WOW! Fantastic lakefront home.

  • 5 of 5

Our (very) large family, ages 2 to 75, had an absolute blast on our 10-day vacation at the Kollross Cottage.

We loved this house. There was ample room for all of us - it is very spacious. It has large bedrooms, high ceilings, and a great floor plan. The home is well-equipped with everything we needed from kitchen supplies and games to bikes/helmets and kayaks. It is a beautiful home - inside and out! Outside we enjoyed the two fire pits, swimming off the docks, biking, kayaking, grilling out, relaxing in the hot tub, and all the outdoor seating. Indoor we enjoyed the TVs, foosball table, ping pong table, games, and all the electronics.

The owners (Steve and Lana) are extremely helpful, genuinely friendly, and go out of their way to be welcoming. Steve gave us tips on the area to help us enjoy our vacation. They provide an excellent guide book to the house with easy-to-understand instructions for anything related to the house (electronics, hot tub, hvac zones, etc), restaurant suggestions, local attractions, etc. Their hospitality was exceptional.

Our family has vacationed at numerous lakes and this home was by far the BEST. We highly recommend this vacation home!

Beautiful Place, Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Lana’s place was spectacular! It is as incredible as advertised, and then some! Roomy, clean, immaculately maintained, plenty of outdoor spots to play and relax and socialize. Steve was incredibly helpful with every request or question I threw his way. They were very personable, kind and accommodating hosts. We had 4 families, 8 kids among us and it was so enjoyable that we all left already planning for next year. This cottage is built for making family memories! Loved it!

We rented this beautiful home during the July 4th week and had a wonderful time. 6 adults and 7 children and we still had extra space! The home is very family friendly. They have a closet full of board games, and the outdoor storage area has tons of outdoor games and lake toys. The patios are amazing, probably one of the best outdoor layouts on Lake Oconee. The location couldn't be more perfect... we were minutes from restaurants, grocery stores, the movie theater, and more. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back!
