The cottage is situated on a 1.35-acre wooded lot in the Crooked Creek Cove area and is known for great fishing. The lot boosts 175 feet of water frontage on a point allowing for the 180 degree views of the lake. You will find a double-boat slip with large deck perfect for sunning and fishing. The dock has a retractable ladder. The dock has recently been updated to include a stainless steel sink, granite counter top, cabinet, and small under counter refrigerator. The community boat ramp is located in our cul-de-sac. The water’s depth at the end of the dock is 6-8 feet with the depth being 25+ feet in the middle of the cove. The cottage boasts a large living area consisting of a kitchen, dinette, and den. The fully stocked kitchen has a gas stove with stylish center island and a panoramic view of the lake. There is no need to bring any additional kitchen or bathroom supplies. We supply everything. Just bring your toothbrush and toothpaste. The master suite has a king-sized bed, master bath, and lake view. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed and a lake view as well. The third bedroom has two twin beds and a walk-in closet. The rear entrance includes a large area for storage, an extra refrigerator with icemaker, and a washer and dryer.
You can find comfortable touches throughout the cottage. A blender, blow dryer, and Keurig coffee maker with k-cups and other coffee fixings are supplied. You will also find spices, an ice cream churn, a complete bar set, plastic and foil wrap, and dish and laundry detergent. One of the most relaxing things to do when at the lake is to have your morning coffee on the front porch while taking in the 180-degree water view. We highly recommend it. There is something very relaxing about viewing water in a quiet setting while watching at the sunrise. Ducks, geese, and blue heron visit the dock frequently.
If after drinking your morning coffee you contemplate entertainment possibilities you will find many. Provided is a 55-inch Tru LED LCD HDTV. Dish Network Pay-Per-View movies are available for an additional charge. We have added a Blu-ray player with internet apps. Also provided is wireless, high-speed cable internet.

The Coopers, Vidalia, GA
We stayed 4/4/2018 to 4/8/2018. We enjoyed our stay at the The Thompson cottage. Everything we needed was there. The neighbors on both sides were very friendly and helpful. The cove is very quite and peaceful. Would recommend this property to anyone. Caught a lot of fish during the day and at night. Plan on staying here again in the future.
Thanks The Coopers
We had a wonderful time at this rental! It had everything we needed and we were able to put our pontoon boat under a shelter. We have already booked another weekend. The owners were great to work with.
Nice House, Great Location
We spent a weekend on the lake at the property and had a great time. The house was as advertised, everything was clean and well maintained. The porch was fantastic...it runs the length the house on the lakeside and since the house sits a little closer to the water than the neighbors, it is very private, with a number of mature trees framing the water view.
It seemed to be a pretty quite section of the lake, making for pleasant mornings and evenings hanging out, but it was also close enough to the main body that we were able to find it from the water while boating with no issues.
The property was also pretty easy to find on land with google maps, and it was very easy to get in and out with am electronic lock on the main door.
We'll definitely consider visiting again!
Very nice - everything was clean and it was just as the pictures showed
We had a wonderful weekend! The house was just perfect...Thank you to the Claxton's
Loved it! Great Get away.
Great porch overlooking lake. Good size yard to play corn hole/can jam etc. Dock needs repair. Several splinters needed to be dug out after walking on it barefoot. Bring your own chairs for the dock and floats for the water. Great neighbors who helped us out during a thunderstorm:)
Memorial Day Escape
With the kids just out of school and lots of summer camp and traveling with extended family during summer, this was the perfect place to relax before all the madness. The cottage is very nicely updated inside and very comfortable. Well stocked with essentials that you always forget on vacation, buy at the grocery store in bulk when you only need a little. Very quiet area off the main river channel even on holiday weekend. Great for paddling, swimming and fishing. Wildlife at the end of the cove. Friendly neighbors. Only an hour and a half from Atlanta. Milledgeville a short drive to whatever you need with very nice Kroger and a few decent restaurants in little downtown area.
All in all, highly recommended.
