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.

Fantastic five star home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Nicklaus home for four days with 8 family members could not have been more enjoyable. The home was immaculate and the Kelley family were very helpful in our stay. Highly recommend to others and we hope to return as well as we have very close family living in Reynolds. The vistas and views were outstanding.

We Will Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our long weekend stay at the former lake home of Jack Nicklaus. The home is beautiful and the views from the porch are spectacular. As soon as you walk out on the porch you can feel your stress level diminish with the serene and peaceful lake views. The home has been decorated beautifully and every room is inviting and comfortable. Definitely a 5 star stay as the owners attention to detail was evident in every way. The home was perfect for our family of 8 get together. The bedrooms were inviting with views of the water from each one. The beds were all super comfortable with soft sheets and lots of pillows. All 4 bedrooms had large adjoining baths to continue the 5 star experience.

The owners have thought of everything you may need to make your stay carefree, relaxing and luxurious. The open floor plan allowed everyone to spread out and still be all together. We enjoyed cooking family meals in the well stocked kitchen and eating all together on the large table on the porch overlooking the serene water views. We also enjoyed renting a boat and spending the day on Lake Oconee. The golfers in my family loved the courses at Great Waters and The Landing. There are also many restaurants nearby to further enhance the experience of Reynolds. A wonderful time was had by all and we will definitely be back!

Look no further as you will definitely enjoy your stay at this lovely lake home!!

Thanks so much to The Kelly's for making us feel like family in their beautiful home and for being so incredibly hospitable. We appreciate all your wonderful tips and help to make our long Labor Day weekend perfect in every way!!
