Beautiful, best kept secret on the lake
When I started looking for a vacation rental for my family, I was looking for something quiet and out of the way. Lake Haven couldn't have been more perfect.
My wife and I have four kids so long before our arrival, we had a lot of questions. Vince's answers were always prompt and helpful and he made us feel very welcome before we had even gotten to the house. Once we arrived, everything was so well explained and provided, that I didn't have to talk to him much, but he was always prompt to reply when I did reach out.
The property looked very nice in the photographs, but the house exceeded all of our expectations as soon as we walked in the door. Privately situated, it is well built with plenty of space, comfortably furnished, and offers plenty of amenities from a garage to cozy beds to a well-stocked kitchen to a game room in the basement. I could go on and on listing all of the thoughtful details we discovered during our stay. Since we were travelling with little ones, we were also grateful to find the house largely "child proof." We spent a week's vacation in and around the house and were ready to stay for a month by the end.
Then there was the lake. I had never heard of Strom Thurmond Lake before, but we basically had it to ourselves. Our stay fell in October, so perhaps its busier at other times, but there aren't a lot of other houses on it and apart from a few passing fishing boats, we hardly saw anyone. We swam in the lake almost every day (the water was very warm) and explored inlets and penisulas with a nice pair of kayaks Vince rented us for the duration of our stay. The boat docks were easily accessed at the foot of the property, though I would recommend the golf cart if you want to avoid walking up and down the hill.
There are several small towns within 30 minutes of the house that yield interesting restaurants and points of interest upon close inspection. Don't miss The Iconic Burger in Elberton or the ante-bellum mansions in Washington! You won't need to leave the house, but if you ever do, there's plenty to see.
Fully expect to return as soon as possible and can't recommend Lake Haven enough for anyone interested in a memorable place to get away from it all.
The most peaceful place on Earth, didn't know it got that quiet.
The house was awesome in layout on decor!!! A view to dye for!!! We will be going back. My husband caught lots of fish so he was happy!!! And when they say they have everything you need, it's true😁Vince is the best! Julie and Rick Hunt, Pooler, Ga. Go Dawgs!!!
Julie I'm so glad you & Ricky enjoyed your stay and had such good luck fishing! Look forward to having you back soon!! Go Dawgs!!
Great Relaxing getaway for the weekend!
A wonderful family vacation in an amazing luxury home!
I highly recommended this rental! Vince was wonderful, helpful and so accommodating, if you needed anything, he is always “10 minutes or less” away! we could have chatted with him for hours! This really is more than just a lake house; it is truly a luxurious home away from home on a beautiful, peaceful lakefront with a private covered dock. It is a little slice of heaven and the perfect escape from it all!
The home is immaculate and the kitchen is stocked and supplied as well as our own at home, you will not need to bring anything extra! Kitchen supplies, towels, games, pool table, darts, he even supplied a full cooler of ice to start us off. If you are bringing your own boat, the boat ramp is just around the corner and the dock can easily accommodate it. The dock is well laid out and always a little shade can me found on a hot day, or a quick dip in the calm water to cool off. The layout of the house accommodated our family of six very well, and the full game room basement allowed plenty of space for everyone to stretch out and have fun. There is even workout equipment for those that want to get a workout in while vacationing!
There are also multiple rental options through Vince for the golf cart, jet skis and pontoon boat, which was a plus. Vince also provided access to a wake board, kneeboard, ropes and tubes and plenty of water toys for our use as well, which was great! Our whole family had a blast on the jet skis and the golf cart was perfect for taking down coolers or equipment to the dock to spend the day on the water! It was great to have so many entertainment options, our children ages 10-16 were able to keep busy with something that interested them!
This vacation is one that our family will remember and treasure for years to come. We are already talking about returning with just my husband and me and again as a family next year. We LOVED our time here!
We just cannot say enough great things about this home! So glad we chose it over the other options we saw!
Thank you so much for your hospitality and opening this beautiful home and accommodations to our family Vince, it was a pleasure!
Thanks for the great review and the kind words!! Hearing them makes all the hard work & planning worthwhile. I'm so glad everyone had a great time and enjoyed their stay at Lake Haven!
I thoroughly enjoyed having Matt, you & the kids as guests...The entire experience from start to finish couldn't have been better... from the great communication to the MUCH appreciated respect shown for my home & property and everything in between!!!...I hope to have you back soon!!
PERFECT QUIET GETAWAY
Loved this home. We were 4 adults and 2 children and this was perfect. We loved the view from the screened in deck. The lake was beautiful and smooth as silk every day. There was not much for traffic on the lake, which is perfect for us. This home is close enough to amenities, but far enough away to relax and take a break from it all. We used wifi in the home, which was just enough to keep us plugged in to work and family. We enjoyed some fried green tomatoes with fresh tomatoes from the garden. We enjoyed renting the pontoon boat and it went just fast enough to catch a breeze and enjoy the scenery. The children swam daily and floated on tubes provided by Vince. The children even enjoyed feeding the fish at the dock. We didn't fish, but by the looks of things, we would have no problem catching fish. Thank you Vince for everything! We will be back again. :)
Hi Shelley, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! So glad you were able to relax and unwind....Thanks for being such great guests & being so respectful of my home!! Your welcome back anytime!! Tell Paul and Carlos I said hello.....
Fantastic experience. Wonderful home and owner.
Great property. Terrific owner and home. Very clean and maintained house and property. Fully stocked and supplied home. Kitchen supplies, towels, games, pool table, darts, he even supplied a full cooler of ice.
We brought boat and used dock which worked out extremely well. Easy access boat ramp right around the corner.
Would stay again at this home in a heartbeat. Thanks for a great weekend!
Keith, Thanks for the great review!! I really do strive to make everything as close to perfect as possible for my guests...Your welcome for the great weekend and Thank you for being such great guests!! Hope to have ya'll back in the future
Some of the best freshwater fishing in the Southeast!!... Largemouth bass, striper, hybrid, catfish are plentiful. 70,000 acres of pristine water to enjoy....We don't have crowded conditions that some lakes experience. Here there is plenty of room for everyone which can make for a much safer day on the lake! Property is somewhat secluded. In other words there isn't a store just around the corner. Milk, bread, gas, ice, etc. is 15 minutes away....Major grocery store and restaurant choices are 30 minutes away... Nearest night life such as bars, clubs, fine dining, theaters, etc. are an hour away in Augusta, Ga.
Cell service is limited so emailing and social media via Wi-Fi are best means of communication. Please Note: Maximum occupancy is 6 people including children. Without prior approval, parties of more than 6 are in violation of the terms & conditions of the required rental agreement which could result in forfeiture of damage deposit/protection.
