About the property

4 Br, 4.5 Bath Cottage With 180 Degree Panoramic Golf And Long Lake Views

Please click on the Video Tab to see a 5 minute presentation of this exceptional property.

This is the only 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom direct lakefront home located in Great Waters, Reynolds Plantation. This is also the only 4BR VRBO listing in all of Reynolds Plantation that provides access to important amenities like a private neighborhood lakefront pool, tennis court, sand beach, docks and a full service marina. All of these amenities plus casual and fine dining are a two minute walk from our lakefront deck.

Entering the property, you are left with the feeling that the cottage is built directly over the water. You will be greeted by stunning views of Lake Oconee and holes number 9 and 18 of the Great Waters golf course, designed by Jack Nicklaus and ranked #46 in Golf Digest's "Top 100 Courses You Can Play". This cottage offers the most unique experience in Reynolds Plantation for both golfers and non golfers alike.

The home is situated on a private cul-de-sac, offering the ultimate in privacy. An open floor plan living area includes dining and living seating for 8. A 65" Ultra High Definition television creates the only distraction from the incredible views from every window. High speed, wireless internet access is available from both the indoor and outdoor living spaces. The new kitchen features stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. The newly expanded lakefront screened porch features what many believe to be the most beautiful and entertaining view on the lake. Covered and screened outdoor dining for 8 was added for 2017, also with unobstructed views of the lake, creating the perfect place for a meal with family and friends. A field stone grilling patio was also newly added for 2017.

The home has 3 master bedroom suites and 1 guest suite, each with a private bath. The baths have been updated with Italian tile and granite. Each bedroom boasts luxury beds with a King bed in each of the master suites and 2 Twin XL beds in the Guest Suite. The suites are completed with 400 thread count sheets, 40" flat screen HD televisions, incredible lake views and white noise machines for privacy. Each bed has 2 luxury pillow options, firm and soft, to ensure the ultimate night's sleep. We also believe that our guests who expect a 5 Star experience should never have to worry about the sanitation of their linens. With this in mind, you can rest easy with the knowledge that ALL bedding is laundered after each and every guest checkout, including our high thread count duvet covers.

Echo Dots were added to each bedroom for 2017 providing access to a limitless music catalog and other features. An Echo was added to the living room providing the same features.

The Nicklaus Cottage is situated in Waterside Village which offers residents and guests access to a private pool, beach and tennis court. There is also a full service marina and a number of private docks reserved for owners and guests only. You will also be steps away from the Great Waters club house with both fine and casual dining available.

Minutes away from restaurants, shops and the Ritz Carlton, you can get as far away from it all as you like, or stay at the center of all the activities that Lake Oconee has to offer.

The home has just completed a 6 figure renovation. The home was newly and professionally decorated in transitional, monochromatic tones ensuring that the the lake views remain the star of the show.

The Nicklaus Cottage is intended to provide each of our guests with a 5 Star experience each and every time. We look forward to welcoming you to an incredible experience on Lake Oconee.

Great attention to details! Clearly a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Our objective was to get away for a peaceful and quite weekend to celebrate Easter with family. Kevin and Jan's home served as the perfect oasis. We enjoyed boating, walking, playing games and simply enjoying the sounds and beauty of nature. We highly recommend and will gladly return for future visits. Kevin and Jan's communication and follow up during and after the reservation process was outstanding.

Spa weekend at lake

  • 5 of 5

I rented this beautiful home for my daughters and I to have a weekend together. We can all fly easily to Atlanta so we headed there and wanted a great place out of the city with spa amenities close by.

This house is soooooo nice. Inviting, comfortable and peaceful. All bedrooms were spacious with wonderful mattresses and linens. Can't really say enough about how nice the house was.....definitely 5 star.

One of the best things was the communication from the owners. It just made everything that much easier and relaxing.

We went to the ritz Carlton for their spa. Very nice and would recommend it. Make sure you give enough time to use the fitness center and other amenities with your spa appointment. We were there for 8 hours or so.

Weekend we picked was quiet for the area and it did get a bit colder than we had planned. But I loved watching the golfers and a few boats on the lake. The steam coming off of the lake on our last morning made for some great photos.

I see myself coming back with some golfing couples.....the house is so nice for that. All four couples will have great bedrooms.

Truly a 5-Star Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the most perfect Labor Day weekend at this beautiful lake cottage!! The house is absolutely impeccable, not a single detail was overlooked! The furnishings are beautiful and very comfortable. There are gorgeous lake views from every room. We loved relaxing on the screened porch and playing board games with the kids. The cottage is in the perfect location in the community, nice and quiet, and with convenient access to the dock, the pool, and the beach area. The Kelly's were a pleasure to book with and so helpful and accommodating! This has been our very best VRBO experience! We absolutely loved staying in this cottage and hope to make it a yearly tradition!!
