Lake Blackshear's 'Landmark Lodge' Year-Round Rental

Bedrooms 4
Property type lodge
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Lodge, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9-14)

Landmark Lodge is a one-of-a-kind home on Lake Blackshear offered for rent year round. This home is the most recognizable house on the lake as it actually sits out over the water at the widest section of Lake Blackshear. Landmark Lodge has Wi/Fi and has the best views of any house on the lake. Enjoy spectacular 180 degree views of the lake and beautiful sunsets from the large decks and balconies or from the comfort of the spacious main living area. The decks and balconies are great for entertaining. Boating, skiing, fishing and swimming are great in this area because there are no cypress trees or stumps on this side of the lake or anywhere near the home. (Please note that due to continued abuse, boat and jet ski lifts are not available for use.)

Landmark Lodge has three master suites. The first master suite has a private balcony overlooking the lake and a large jetted bathtub. (There is not a shower in this bathroom.) Another suite enjoys tremendous views of the lake through large floor to ceiling windows. The main living area features three couches and a large flat screen TV. An additional sunken living area makes a great playroom for the kids with a TV. Two dining tables and a bar provide plenty of seating for meals. The kids will enjoy their very own bunk room with 3 twin beds. Everyone will enjoy the huge swimming platform.

Landmark Lodge is just down from Georgia Veterans State Park. Go by car or boat to enjoy all that the Park has to offer. You can even ride the SAM Shortline Railway to Plains, GA, home of former President Jimmy Carter. Georgia Veterans State Park also offers a beautiful 18 hole golf course, jet-ski rentals, boat rentals, sunset cruises and two restaurants.

Landmark Lodge is a family-friendly home where you will make memories that will last a lifetime!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We came here with our family and three dogs to escape hurricane Irma. We felt like we were on a vacation. The view is absolutely beautiful and the accommodations were great! Lots of room and very homey. Very thankful for the owners hospitality-she was very pleasant to deal with as well.

Great property, Great location, amazing fishing and a Great owner.

  • 5 of 5

Property was amazing, this property was everything we hoped it would be and more. Amazing location, lots of room and I must say the owner was very easy to work with always willing to answer any question and always made it easy for my family and I. Anything that needed to be fixed or repair at the property she had someone there to repair things before I had a chance to contact her. What an amazing Communication line she had with us as rentals . Will revisit this location for our upcoming and near future family events. AMAZING PROPERTY! Thanks for allowing my family and I to rent your lake house.👍�

If you rent this place you rent it as is

  • 2 of 5

This place could be one of the best on the lake if only the property owners would listen to the people renting it. The people in charge of cleaning it are not doing their job. One of the beds was left with dirty sheets on it. So be prepared to change them. The outside windows had to be cleaned so you could see out of them. The master bedroom upstairs shower is broke and has been all summer and they don't care. The list goes on. I wrote a email to Samantha when I got back and got no response. Both boat lifts are broke and that whole area looks like it hasn't been cleaned all summer. The sad thing is if the owners would spend a few hundred and fix all this stuff they could get more a night.

Owner's Response: Ralph, Thank you for your feedback. Please accept my sincerest apologies. Before your stay, our cleaner of many years sadly passed away, which resulted in several issues as we transitioned to her replacement. While this is no excuse, please know that we strive to provide a clean and pleasant environment for our guests. I hope you will give us another opportunity. Sincerely, Samantha

The house was open when we arrived. The house was not very clean.

  • 3 of 5

I never received any check in or check out information. I did not have the acces code to enter the home, luckily the back door was open. The house was not very clean, the beds looked as if they were just remade, not washed. The sheets smelled like body odor. We were up until 2 a.m. washing all the linens. There were spiders and ants everywhere. When we contacted the owner she was very apologetic, and kind over the phone. But, I feel she is very disconnected with the property. On the positive side, the house is very roomy, we had three generations under one roof and enjoyed our week. The house is in the perfect spot for swimming, and tubing, plenty of room to tie off your boats. With a little more love and care to this home it would be perfect.

Great place for a large family.

  • 4 of 5

Great place for a large family. Having a vrbo of my own, I know how hard it is to keep everything in good condition. Even though the house could use some repairs, updates and a deep cleaning, none of these things interfered with our fantastic lake trip! Great decks and a boat lift made our stay! Thanks, Samantha!
