Loved the position on the lake

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't ask for more kind, caring owners. We caught fish, boated, enjoyed the cooler weather. A truly amazing 5 weeks. I'm glad I got to actually meet both of you.

Gale I hope your knee pain is relieving.

The house had everything in it as you promised. Your devoted worship of our Lord was easily seen. It is easy to see that difference in people.

I'll be calling you about next year hopefully for perhaps a longer time.

Money rules and we are both retired on fixed incomes.

God bless,

Barb and Dale Dear

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a good time while you were here on your retreat. I'm sure the young officers of the FFA enjoyed their time at the lake. My husband was in the FFA program when he was in highschool. It was an outstanding program "45" years ago. I'm glad to hear it is still teaching young people the fundamentals of "taking care of & living off the land". Please visit with us again when you are in this area. Thanks, Ronnie & Gale

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Our trip was last minute; we saw an opening on the calendar and left the same day. Ms. Gayle, was more than helpful with our last minute

request. House was clean and comfortable, just as advertised. We really thought the close proximity to town was very convenient especially this being a last minute trip. We could run to town to pick something up if we forgot it. Great and much needed vacation.

Great Lake Vacation

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with 2 teenage boys(13). It was so nice to have the mountain bikes, canoe and kayak for our use. The boys were in the lake most of the time. House is in a larger cove with great views of big water, so nice for swimming and fishing.

Neighborhood is beautiful! I enjoyed getting out on the bike and riding around the neighborhood.

House is very well furnished/stocked with everything you need. So appreciated the small sound system in the kitchen, near the back deck as I listened to music instead of watching much TV. Backyard is wonderful! Flat, with nice grass, short easy walk to the dock(No Steps)

I gave this home 4 stars... Only reason I didn't give it 5 was because of the proximity of the airport. It's across the street... While it is a small airport, we heard small planes taking off and landing daily. However the proximity to the town of Milledgeville and shopping/eating is GREAT. One reason I picked this house, as I wanted to be able to have easy access to Milledgeville to see friends. I have rented many homes in the area and love that this one is so close to Milledgeville. Also I had cell phone coverage(this was huge, as there is no land line) Some homes on the lake where I have stayed in the past, I had NO cell coverage with T-Mobile. I checked the T-Mobile map online before I booked this home to make sure I would have coverage.

Owners, Ronnie and Gale were very nice, stopping by to make sure we were comfortable.

Thanks for a wonderful getaway on the lake, Boys already asking if we can come back next summer.:)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments Sounds like you & the boys had a wonderful time. We are glad they enjoyed the bike we took over & the canoe & kayak. We are across from the airport but did not realize the noise was a problem. You cannot see the runway or hangers from the house.We have never had anyone to comment about the noise which is occasional & minimal. You can hear & see airplanes land and take off which is usually enjoyed by our guest. After all how many children get to see airplanes that close. Some of them even do tricks in the air. The noise is not heard from inside the house. It is a very small airport therefore only small planes occasionally land here & take off.. Thank you for visiting & we hope you & your boys will visit again. Ronnie & Gale Tinsley.
