Secluded Southern Charm on the Lake! Get away for a quiet respite at this fabulous 5 bedroom home located just an hour outside Atlanta. This waterfront home offers breathtaking views of Lake Jackson and is completely surrounded by forest so that you will have the ultimate in relaxation and “alone” time.

I do need to stress that this home is for families and groups of friends. It is not appropriate for hosting large parties, weddings or any gatherings for people who are not actually staying/sleeping in the house.

Home features five full bedrooms and three baths with a master suite on both floors. Dining room seats eight as does the outdoor dining deck. Enjoy the full length rocking chair porch offering fabulous sunset views or relax with a glass of wine by the gas fire pit. The hot tub seats seven and there is even an outdoor hot shower.

The full size kitchen is fully equipped with stainless appliances, cooking utensils, china, and flatware and opens into a beautiful dining area on the upper level. Downstairs, a fully equipped bar is just off the living room area. Enjoy a game of pool with your friends, watch some of your favorite movies from a large DVD collection on a 50 inch HD TV, or tickle the ivories on a 1937 Upright Steinway Piano.

This home features Wi-FI internet access and the lower level is wired for sound with a loaded 300 disk CD player featuring a variety of musical genres.

Bring your boat and tie up to the dock or rent a pontoon from one of the local Marinas.

For larger guest gatherings, this home can be rented in conjunction with my other listing (Crestview House) (listing 862955) for an additional 10 guests. These two homes are minutes away from each other.

Beautiful house, tons of fun activities, and the nicest people!

  • 5 of 5

The house was gorgeous and beautifully decorated for Christmas when we arrived. It had incredible views of the lake with tons of privacy. Even though we went when it was too cold for lake activities, we enjoyed the hot tub, firepits, and pool table. The owners left a huge selection of movies, books, and games for guests to enjoy. They even had a box full of New Year party hats & noise makers that we got to use on NYE. The kitchen was fully stocked with any pots, pans, & utensils you would need. They even had spices, flour, condiments, coffee, tea, etc. that we could use. Daniel is very friendly and responsive. Tami and her husband met us at the house when we arrived. They were also very friendly and helpful, describing everything we needed to know about the house and where local grocery stores and restaurants were. There is also a binder with helpful information. We definitely plan to go back in the summer!

Great Thanksgiving Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Had a Thanksgiving Family Reunion on the lake. It was awesome sitting outside right on the lake watching the sunsets. Tammy Lee, the manager, had the house clean and ready when promised and gave us a detail tour to show us everything the house had to offer. Kitchen was fully equipped. The house was easy to find and had plenty of parking.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Four couples rented the home this past weekend. It was wonderful! Mr. Britt(owner) was very nice and called personally to answer my request. I was amazed. He offered his contact information if I had any questions or concerns. Tami ( property manager) was also great. She called to let me know she would meet me at the house to instruct me on how to operate the utilities, hot tub, and etc. On the day we were to leave for our two hour vacation Tami called to wish us well and remind me she would be waiting for us. On the way we encountered a traffic jam due to a fatal car wreck. I phoned Tami to let her know what was going on. She was very understanding. Later I called Tami because I came to a dirt road that mapquest told me to travel for two miles. She suggested that I hold on while she and her husband looked on a map to see where we were in proximity to the house. We were redirected. They never got upset or annoyed . We arrived and was embraced with a big southern hug - as we are southerners ourselves. The house was exactly as it was pictured. She gave me instructions and left so we could begin our weekend. I texted later to ask where the switch was to turn the light on over the hot tub. Tami immediately texted me back. We enjoyed the fire pit, sit down dinners, fishing, rocking chairs and pool table. This is a wonderful home away from home. My family members were asking me if we could rent the house for a weekend next summer before Tami left and we had only been there a few minutes. The kitchen is equipped with any pot, pan, or gadget you desire. This home come highly recommended with a great owner (Daniel Britt) and property owner (Tami Lee). Thanks for the opportunity to use your house.

Perfect place for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to rave about how great this rental is, because I am already planning on renting it again! It was great for a large group with lots of rooms and sleeping spots.Having the lake right there was perfect and we never had to leave for the weekend. I would love to stay there for a longer period of time as there is so much to do at this place. Daniel, the owner, is super nice and so is his property manger Tami. Thank you for a great weekend!!

Great place for a family weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for our family over a long weekend. The back porch and yard overlooking the lake was perfect for our family and dog. Plenty of space in the kitchen and downstairs living space. Great find for the price!
