Our family is originally from the South - Rebecca was born in Georgia. We have had the opportunity to move across our great country and live in Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida, New York, Maryland, California, Illinois and finally, back to Georgia! It has been a positive experience meeting new people, visiting historic landmarks and museums and taking advantage of what each area has to offer. When Rebecca was growing up, her grandparents owned a drive-in theatre and she has warm, fuzzy and wonderful memories of her time watching movies on the big-screen, playing on the playground and helping make pizzas! Our decision to purchase a LAKE home was to provide our family with fantastic, warm, and endearing memories of our own. We love to ski, golf, swim, fish, boat, cook, eat outdoors, play games, ride bikes, etc... and we can do it all at 'Miles Away!'
Rebecca purchased this House in 2002
Why Rebecca chose Eatonton
After one trip to Lake Oconee, 374 miles of shoreline and 19,000 acres of spectacular recreational living, we realized what a multi-faceted gem it is! Rich in history and tucked away, this scenic resort area is one of the most beautiful regions of Georgia and represents the charm and grace of the old South with hundreds of acres of unspoiled nature at our doorstep. It is the state's premier golf and lake resort area boasting eight world class golf courses and is easily accessible to Atlanta, Athens and Augusta. An easy drive down I-20E, just over an hour will take you to the famous Master's tournament! It has some of the South's best boating, fishing and equestrian facilities. We appreciate the area's warm summers and mild winters. Miles Away is centrally located: the grocery, golf courses, Ritz Carlton, locally owned shops and boutiques, 4-star restaurants and southern barbeque are all within minutes. For more adventures with the family, the area has horseback riding, guided boat tours and nature trails. There are also special events such as music festivals, craft shows, fishing tournaments and holiday celebrations. What better way to make wonderful memories with your children and grandchildren than swimming, fishing, tubing, golfing, skiing, boating, cooking s'mores, playing games, building sand castles or just watching them do it all while you take the pictures and capture the memories!
What makes this House unique
Our family fell in love with the spectacular location, property, and main lake view - the large, flat lot with over 300 feet of main lake shore line looks across at breathtaking natural beauty and phenomenal sunsets. The large patio with grill and fire pit and small, but private, beach area are two very useful amenities. Miles Away is wonderfully stocked, which makes packing much easier, and we offer free wifi. The golf cart (available to rent) is nice for transporting everything back and forth from the house to the lake. There is a boat ramp one mile down the street and the closest marina is less than 5 minutes by boat. Quiet, comfortable and ultimate convenience - we love that Miles Away really is like a home away from home, where we can relax, renew and rediscover!

Every Friday I wish I was returning to Miles Away!
Although it has been a couple of busy weeks since our stay at your beautiful lakehouse, the memories we made and the anticipation of returning are fresh in my mind. With our children in school in Augusta and Statesboro and us living in a northern suburb of Atlanta, this location was perfect for our extended family to join for dinner for my daughter's 25th birthday. There was PLENTY of room for everybody to enjoy each other's company. The nephews (ages 4 & 6) enjoyed toys in the bonus room and the "bigger kids" (including parents!) enjoyed fishing off the dock. It's funny how people enjoy fishing even when the fish are smart enough to not get caught! :) Throughout the day and into the evening, we spent time sitting around the spacious fire pit sharing stories and catching up. Perfect way for the old and young alike to spend some quality time together.
The house was very clean and had plenty of supplies...sheets, towels, blankets, pantry staples, dishes, bowls, serving utensils...definitely a well-stocked kitchen! We've had our fair share of stays in condos and rental houses through the years, so I came prepared with items like seasonings, oil, wine opener, dish soap, toilet paper, etc...simply to avoid making small trips to the grocery store. However, none of those items were needed because they were already at the house.
Rebecca was very easy to reach and super-pleasant to work with. I definitely recommend renting this lakehouse as long as you don't mind the nagging thoughts of "Dang...it's Friday...sure wish we were heading back to that lakehouse!"
Thank you for everything, Rebecca...we thoroughly enjoyed it!
Suzanne! What a wonderful review - thank you so much! We loved having your family and appreciated the care you took of Miles Away. It is nice to know we had everything you needed and that you all made wonderful memories of your daughter's 25th birthday! We hope to see you back in the near future and wish you much health and happiness going forward! Thanks again for taking the time to write about your experience at Miles Away on Lake Oconee! Rebecca
I was very pleased with the overall quality of the home and Rebecca was very easy to get in touch with for when I had a question!
Thank you - always appreciate you choosing Miles Away!
Thank you Rebecca for making everything perfect.
You are very welcome! We love your family, and you are invited back for any time you can get away! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Rebecca
Another perfect stay for business!
Thanks and we appreciate you continuing to choose Miles Away for your business! Rebecca
