Overview

About the property

Cabin on lake, 2 BR plus loft with total 4 db/queen beds.- sleeps 6.

Serenity awaits you at the Luxury Log Cabin located just 12.25 miles from the heart of Athens. This cabin was built 16 years ago and is located on a private 20 acre watershed lake.

No matter what brings you here you will enjoy the solitude of being the only home on the lake. Many visitors come just to get away from the daily grind but most come here to be close to UGA activities! You can watch the game from the comfort of the cabin or be in the middle of Sanford Stadium in minutes.

Wifi is included and there is cell signal on the property. No pets and no smokers are allowed so we can keep the cabin fresh and clean.

While you are here you may enjoy fishing in the lake where there is an abundance of Brim, Crappy, Bass, and Catfish. You can sleep late and awaken to the beauty of the lake through the master bedroom window then go out to cruise the lake on kayaks or the jon boat. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils for any occasion. You can relax on the wraparound porch and enjoy meals indoors or out.

Theaters, shopping, you name it and it's there. The Commerce Outlet Malls are only 10 minutes from our home in case you have shopping on your mind!

After dinner, you can relax by the lake and enjoy s'mores by the campfire as you unwind from the day. Hmmm...sounds good!

We prefer to answer all questions and complete reservation via email through this site. Our reservation calender is up to date. If your date shows availability you can book online. Thanks!

About Jamie Ramsey

I grew up on the 60 acre farm that surrounds this beautiful cabin. I built the cabin and lived there during college at UGA. After college it became a family getaway until I decided to share it with others through vacation rental.

Jamie Ramsey purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Jamie Ramsey chose Nicholson

We are the third generation of my family to own this property. The home is located on a private watershed lake that was built in the 1960's.

What makes this cabin unique

There is no place like this where you can be so secluded and yet so close to town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying the cabin. My oldest son has Asperger's and is very sensitive to smells, bugs, and what ever else he perceives as not being clean. He said he could live here! That is a huge compliment!!! Said it was best place he's ever been. The other three kids having a great time too!

Beautiful Cabin and Setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin and the property. Beautiful woods and location on the lake. Very ptivate. We'll kept and maintained.

Wish I would have discovered it at the start of my daughter's college career rather than graduation.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I found the cabin to be a peaceful hideaway. The home is clean, beds are soft and kitchen has every item needed to feel at home. My six year old grandson made good use of the wooden swing set. The two adult children enjoyed kayaking on the lake. Overall the experience was comfortable, affordable and I hope to return. Thank you to the owners for making our visit stress free.

Great cabin, water issues.

  • 3 of 5

Great cabin, great setting. Really liked everything except for the sulfur smell from the water. Had that not been an issue, we would have given a 5 star rating. Water was undrinkable and the smell made it unbearable to take a shower.
