Note to boaters: Lake Sinclair is a Georgia Power lake and the water fluctuates during the day and throughout the year. Water is typically around 2-4 ft. in front of our dock and channel. During the late summer and early fall, the water level could be lower due to the use of the lake by Georgia Power and due to natural causes. We cannot guarantee water levels and the type of boat may determine level of difficulty accessing the dock.

We do have low areas visible when water is low, but when the water comes in the fish are coming in with it! There is an island visible that bring in ducks, turtles and lots of other birds. Children love to play in the low water.

New owner is a former monthly renter who loved the house so much that she had to snatch it up as soon as it came on the market. House has all new furnishings including beds, sofas, dining table and TVs. Pictures of the newly painted and decorated interior now up!

Rental is available for a day or two, a weekend, weekly or monthly. Rent the home 6 nights and get the 7th free!

10% off for returning customers! Make our house your yearly vacation destination!

About Jennifer Kindick

Sharon came to Georgia to escape the cold winters of Massachusetts. Originally a Maryland native, she enjoys reading, writing and traveling around the world. As soon as she rented this house, it felt like home so she had to snatch it up as soon as it came on the market. This house is managed by her daughter-in-law, Jen. Jen, originally from Philadelphia, is an elementary, middle and high school Latin teacher, occasional archaeologist and museum enthusiast. She met Sharon's son in college at Sharon's alma mater, Franklin and Marshall College, and officially joined the family in 2013. She loves to travel to anywhere on the water and likes to spend as much time as possible in Europe.

                                                                The cons were it was too far away from nearest grocery

                                                                and it smelled like dog urine. Should consider removing carpet. I bought a candle and that worked. The town looks like it's dying.....

                                                                My dog started with continual hacking. I ended up calling the vet and they said over the phone it sounded like "reverse sneezing" and google it. There was nothing they could do

                                                                and probably related to an allergy. When we returned home, it stopped. Jennifer was good

                                                                about returning my deposit. The price was ok for what you got... Other reviewers liked the

                                                                Dear Pat,

                                                                We are sorry that you were disappointed in your stay but pleased that you recognized that the house is clean and has great new amenities like large TVs. We never had any other complaints about pet smells and we routinely do deep cleanings of the carpet with a steam cleaner. We have always considered the cottage to be in a fortunate position between Eatonton and Milledgeville, two very different towns.

                                                                Thank you for your comments.

                                                                Excellent stay

                                                                Joey F.Spring Hill, FL

                                                                Owner and management team were excellent with us. The location is beautiful for a relaxing time with amazing views. I would definitely recommend a stay here year round. Inside the house there is everything you need in the kitchen and the screened porch is awesome. We had a great time with our pets. Very clean. We would definitely come back.

                                                                Great time despite Irma

                                                                Pam W.

                                                                We enjoyed our visit even though Irma had other plans... real nice cozy little place... planning our next trip

                                                                Very nice house!

                                                                Timothy D.

                                                                House was very comfortable and fully functioning. The only downside is the dock area - water was low and the dock itself is a little outdated, some shaky boards, heads of nails need to be hammered back in and ladder has fallen apart.

                                                                Otherwise a great stay!! Would definitely come back!

                                                                Wonderful spot on the lake!

                                                                We stayed here for a wedding of a friend closeby and it was the perfect home base. Beautiful view, lovely dock, clean and spacious. Highly recommend!

                                                                Great Getaway

                                                                We rented this cottage for July 4th. It was so peaceful and relaxing. Not good depth for boats or hanging out swimming but we were able to barely get our boat in (why 4 stars) Overall great place!!
