About Mickey Turner

This is our family's lake escape that we often share with friends and clients throughout the year. The mattresses are of the highest quality along with the bedding. The house was actually a full-time lake residence prior to our purchase so you truly have all of the comforts of home.

Mickey Turner purchased this house in 2010

Why Mickey Turner chose Crane Hill

The location on the lake is great whether you are coming from the north or the south. The home is in a somewhat private area so you don't have to worry about fast boat traffic or strong waves constantly knocking against your boat or swim platform.

What makes this house unique

The 2 master king suites with master baths are a plus in that if two couples are sharing the home you can't make a bad decision on which bedroom to choose.

Atlanta, Georgia

Great place to stay. Very quiet and peaceful view of lake with easy access to dock.

  • 5 of 5

This was such a relaxing place to stay. There were 7 adults there and we all had plenty of room. We were able to play pool and ping pong. They had a great selection of movies we got to watch at night or when it rained. We were provided kayaks that we used to paddle around in the lake off of the private dock. The AC motor broke while we were there and the owner and property managers worked very quickly to get someone out to fix it.

The only thing we really had issues with was trying to figure out the 3 remotes to work the tv/ dish. But that also could be that our youngest was 54, so technology wasn’t our strong suit.We did figure it out, but simple directions with remotes marked might help the next guests.

This was an overall great relaxing time of reflecting for us as a family. We had just lost the 8th person that was supposed to be on our trip 2 weeks before. But we enjoyed it because we knew he would have loved it too. Hope to come back again one day.

We had such an amazing time in this beautiful spot! A ton of space, so much fun stuff to do, and right on the water. Couldn't have asked for a better lake house for the weekend.. Will definitely be coming here again in the future!

Beautiful Lake House

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here for my bachelorette trip!

The house is beautiful and spacious. Theres a small store with anything you would need approx 5 mins away, which was great due to the lack of toilet paper and paper towels in the house that took us by suprise. Only other downside was that you could tell the house hadnt been used recently from the mounds of leaves that covered the porch. Other than these minor things we had a fantastic trip! Would book again!

Awesome quiet location

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The location was plenty big enough for our family and it was a beautiful home. We had a few plumbing issues and the house was clean but not freshly clean. I am sure that it is more of a summer spot but we would definitely visit again.
