About Brenda Caron

Smith's River House is a family owned property. Our parents bought this Riverfront Home many years ago. There are 5 adult children who now continue to enjoy the River that our Father loved so much. Growing up on the river, enjoying the swimming, boating, the natural Springs and Yes all the fishing. Our Father loved to fish and Lake George is a great place to fish for bluegill, copperhead (crappie), speckled perch and the BIG BASS. Even the PRO'S love to fish Lake George for the Bass.....We love the quiet peaceful feeling of being at the Lake. Our children have grown up from birth knowing and loving the Lake. We would love for you to come and fall in love with this Beautiful place. The Home is so warm and inviting and everyone that stays here says they can feel the warmth and the Love in this place.

Why Brenda Caron chose Georgetown

We are located on the East side of Lake George.....For the AMENITIES that we have to offer with the Property and the Home, we are the LOWEST Rental at Lake George..

What makes this house unique

From the Kitchen, you can sit with a cup of coffee and look out the large window and view the water.....Such a peaceful place.....

Smith's River House on Big Lake George
average rating of 3.5 based on 2 reviews

There were positives and negatives. Owners are super nice. The property needs a clean-up.

  • 3 of 5

We rented a boat at a nearby marina and had fun running around and fishing in that. Sat on the dock and watched an awesome sunset. Lots of birds in the area. And we took a nice hike at nearby Welaka State Park. The House kinda smelled and needs a deep cleaning. The drinking water smelled really bad, so we bought our own. My wife and I came from out of state and had our Mothers meet us there. I think it’s more suited for a “guys trip” - fishing, hunting, etc.

Owner's Response: The reason for the water smell, it is well water....we do have a water system to combat the iron and hardness but as far as the sulfur smell that you get when taking a shower, well that can not be removed....the water is clean and healthy but the sulfur smell, there is nothing that can remove that......The house has carpet and we try to keep it clean....we strive for every guest to be pleased and go beyond to insure each and every stay is the best it can be.....
