Great little place, close to downtown Milledgeville

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend at this home for Deep Roots weekend. It was perfect for our group of 7. It was also well stocked with everything we needed to cook, lots of towels, and extra blankets and pillows. It was only a 5 minute drive to the college and downtown. We will be back!

Perfect for our young family of 7

  • 5 of 5

Gale and Ron were so helpful and attentive!

We stayed an extra night because of Hurricane Irma ( we live on the Florida gulf coast).As the storm weakened and moved north, the power was knocked out on the morning of our departure. I was doing laundry and our clothes got locked in the washing machine! Ronnie brought over a generator and freed our clothes.

Great people, great house, great location!

Very family friendly-Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you Lindsey for your kind remarks. I'm so glad you had a wonderful vacation. You left as the bad weather was coming to the lake. We still do not have power. Lots of trees & power poles down. Glad we were able to accomodate your family for an extra day. We had to cancel a family coming in Thursday due to the power outage. Please visit with us again under better circumstances. We're glad there was plenty of sunshine during most of your visit. Prayerfully you found your home intact with little damage as you returned home. Thanks, Ronnie & Gale Tinsley

Owner's Response: I'm glad you were able to visit with your Mom. It's always nice to have guest return year after year. Hopefully you will visit with us again next year. Thanks for taking such good care of our property. I saw the picture today. It is awsome. I love the colors she used in it. Guess I will have to frame it so everyone can see what a great artist she is. I think next year ( when you come to visit) I will leave a canvas so I can get an original. (HaHa) Take care & visit us again when you have time. Ronnie & Gale Tinsley
