About Ken Colson

I live in Atlanta (for work) but treasure time @ the lake. It is truly our escape from all the stess and pressures of life in the big city. I tend to forget everything about work and schedules when we arrive @ the lake. I have 3 kids (and grandkids) so we needed a lake home that could handle a big family!

Ken Colson purchased this house in 2008

Why Ken Colson chose Metro Atlanta, Central & Southern

This house is located at the end of the cove with a beautiful view out of the cove to big water. With 7-9' deep water off the dock, we never have to be concerned about having enough water for swimming and boating. Beautiful clear water, a calm relaxing breeze, made this the perfect place. This end of the lake is not crowded allowing for safer boating and watersports.

What makes this house unique

The Southern Living charm coupled with the open airy floor plan make this a great place to relax or to entertain.

The top cover deck is unique that it has a mini-bar and is a great place to take in the beautiful view and a great place to take a nap when it's raining.

Beautiful Lake Oconee Home with a Million $$ View
average rating of 4.8125 based on 16 reviews

This was our second time at the house in a four year period.

  • 5 of 5

We are very familiar with the Lake Oconee area and we find the location ideal...far enough away from the hub-bub closer to the Ritz and the commercial areas to provide a peaceful/decompressing family retreat and at the same time close enough to still be convenient when we want to be around those amenities. The layout of the bedrooms and the separate two bedroom annex provides us with privacy and comfort for a family with age ranges from 8 to 85. After that, the beautiful lake views up the cove to the main body of the lake have given us many "Ahhhh...(sigh...)" moments.

Lovely, quiet lake home!

  • 5 of 5

Our children, grandchild and mom joined us for Christmas at this beautiful lake home. It was perfect! Kitchen is well-equipped, high-end appliances plus all the extras you might need. Huge refrigerator, oven that converts to convection, microwave, large Wolf range top. Open, clean, comfortable, lots of private space for those (kids) who want to have private time and chit-chat without an audience! Beautiful lake view in a quiet cove, nice dock, outdoor fire pit (not used) and upstairs porch gas fire pit (enjoyed a lot!). Direct Tv, Netflix - DVD players that we used to watch old family favorite Christmas movies. Guys loved the ping pong table in the basement. Wonderful place to stay! Thank you to the owner, Ken Colson!

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a summer week here. Great location, view and home! Very beautiful inside and out. We brought our boat with us kept it at the dock. The dock is good size and has multiple areas you could dock your boat at. The depth is also good at the dock. The main floor is very open with the living room and kitchen and downstairs is also a great sized room with couches, TV and a ping ping table. The only tough thing about the home is that it is not very close to any major grocery stores. However, we just made sure to stock up properly the couple times we went shopping. Other than that, this house has it all. Ken, the owner, was great to work with and responds to calls/messages is a timely fashion. I look forward to coming back to this place in the future.

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely incredible; plenty of room for our large family, very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed for the week. Ken was extremely nice and easy to work with. We have a boat at a marina on Lake Oconee, but had never stayed at the lower end of the lake before. This is now one of our favorite places, less traffic and the water is much clearer. We will certainly stay there again!

Beautiful lake House.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Ken

We had a great Family vacation at your beautiful lake house. It had everything we needed from a spectacular view to bbqing on the deck. The boat ramp was a block away with plenty of dock space for my wave runners and boat. The place was very clean with all the nessesary items you would need from spices in the pantry to a coffee maker. The beds were very comfortable with plenty of room for everyone to rest and relay after a funfilled day on the lake.

PS. Thank you for going out of your way with my son in law and the UFC payperview fight.

Once again Thank you for everything and I'll see you next July.
