About Ruthie Gay
We enjoy getting away from every day life from time to time and decided this was a great way to do it. After years and years of working hard it is nice to have a place like this to go to. Yet we can't go often enough so we decided to open it up for others to enjoy. Life gets busy and hectic so we all need some time away to relax and have fun.
Why Ruthie Gay chose Cobb
This property just spoke to me the very first time I walked in the front door. All I could see through the wall of glass on the back side was the beautiful lake. The serenity and calming feelings that this view brought on was breathtaking. Sitting on the back screen deck in the evening and watching the lights across the lake come on and twinkle in the water is just the most relaxed feeling. This is why I just love this home.
What makes this House unique
Turtle Watch is unique in that it has beautiful views but also a very unique charm all it's very own. The coziness and family atmosphere in every room. Nothing over the top extravagant but comfortable and refreshing. The electric boat lift along with the extra covered deck make lake watching, riding or fishing easy for all to be done at the same time by multiple people. Normally with a nice breeze blowing through to keep everything enjoyable. Large enough to take a picnic out to the covered deck and enjoy snacks while you spend the day out doors.

Memorial Day Weekend 2018
From the time we walked into this beautiful house, we were pleasantly surprised. The attention to every detail was covered completely. The view of the lake was spectacular!!
Its conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood and close to the Dollar General Store and Striplings, and we thoroughly enjoyed eating at The Cove, Daphne Lodge, and Pats Fish House. We also had everything we needed to cook in the kitchen. The manager of the property, Ruthie, was wonderful and very helpful, even sending us lake and weather updates. I would definitely recommend this property for families looking for relaxation and quiet time, not to mention the fishing off of the dock was great. We are planning on coming back as soon as possible.
Thank you so much for your review. So happy the weather stayed good enough to enjoy the lake and fishing, until the last day. We are so thankful for wonderful guests like you and will welcome you back any time.
Family Get Away!
We had a wonderful but short trip. The house was great and we loved finishing off the dock. It very convenient to get groceries and fishing supplies. Ruthie is fantastic. We'll be back!
Great Week at the Lake with the Family
We thoroughly enjoyed a week with children, in-laws, and grandchildren at Turtle Watch on Lake Blackshear. The home was ideal for our large gathering with sleeping space to spare. Fishing from the dock was great for everyone, even the youngsters. We caught enough for a midweek fish fry. A very large catfish broke a line and is waiting for future guests. The kids and adults enjoyed swimming in the lake near the dock. The boat house/dock was great. We were able to park our boat under cover when not in use and get in and out with ease. The fish cleaning station was used extensively. The 3-year old twins were able to fish from the section with railing. We fished from the boat, went for boat rides, and the youngsters enjoyed tubing behind the boat. We could not have had a better place on the lake. In our prior rental experiences, we have not had a more responsive property manager to our questions. And, never have we had such an extensive supply of nice bath towels. We would like very much to visit Turtle Watch in the future. The kids named one turtle, Bob, and would like to see him on another trip.
I am so very happy you all had a great visit, even making friends with the turtles. Guests like you are why we choose to rent Turtle Watch. Families bonding and having fun making memories to last a lift time! I do hope you will come back and watch the young turtles grow. Thank you so much for choosing Turtle Watch for your lake get-a-way!! You truly were a joy to work with. Your entire family are always welcome back!
Lovely lake setting
Our large family enjoyed a relaxing weekend at Turtle Watch! This home has ample space and a rocking chair porch with beautiful views of the lake. It is a perfect place to bring your boat and enjoy time on the water!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and had fun on the lake. You truly were a great guest! We welcome you back anytime. We are constantly updating and trying to make things as perfect as possible for wonderful guests such as you. Hopefully you will return and enjoy the lake even longer. Thank you so much for your review. You are truly very much appreciated.
Great property & location. Plenty of room for everyone

Thank you so much for your review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and do hope you will return. Guest like you are always very much appreciated.
Wonderful Week at the Lake
Turtle Watch was all we had expected and more!! We enjoyed a breathtaking view of the lake from the family room, dining area and kitchen. And it was so nice to walk into a house so clean and well maintained. My husband and I loved that the kids had a separate room to play games and watch tv AND a basement room with beds just for them. My husband was even able to take afternoon naps without being disturbed because our bedroom was on the main level of the house. We loved having pizza at the Cove one night and having a nice dinner at Daphnes another night....Great to have these 2 restaurants less than 15 minutes away. We spent most days swimming and fishing, lounging on the porch or down at the dock, which is only about 30 feet away. We never got tired of this magnificent view and if you decide to stay at this nice property you won't either. There is just something so peaceful about gazing at such a large expanse of water and blue sky. Property manager, Ruthie, was an absolute delight to work with. She is eager for her guests to have a positive experience at Turtle Watch! We will be back, Ruthie!! Thank you again for such a great week at Turtle Watch.
I'm so glad you all had good time! We work hard to provide our guest a home they want to return to again and again with friends and family.
Thank you for choosing to stay at Turtle Watch. We hope you will plan another trip soon.
The GA Veterans State Park is a "Must See" Museum of our history along with planes out in the pasture to walk up to and look at and take pictures with. (10-15 minutes away from Turtle Watch) They are truly amazing. Great place for family day, have a picnic or go to one of the restaurants there. Andersonville, GA and Americus, GA (about 35 minutes away) many historical Museums and historic sites to visit. Along with more restaurants and shopping.
