About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Lake House on Lake Sidney Lanier

Fully Furnished 3bed/2bath A Frame on quiet deep water cove with dock.

Entry Level

Features newly renovated kitchen and great room (with entertainment center) both with great views of the lake and dock. Large doors lead out onto full-length deck with grill and plenty of seating area. Also on this level are full bath and queen bedroom.

Porch Level

Features Master Bedroom and Bath, with large doors leading onto full-length screened porch with beautiful views of lake and dock. A pair of rockers, table and chairs, and a hammock are provided for your enjoyment. Also on this level are the laundry room and a “bonus room” with trundle beds. The hot tub on the porch level deck overlooking the lake is one of our favorite amenities.


A smaller bedroom with 2 twin-sized beds is perfect for the kids. Sliding glass doors lead out onto the porch overlooking the garden on the driveway side of the house.


A 24’x24’ single slip dock is a short and easy walk from the house and has mooring available for your boat or pwc. It is conveniently located to boat ramps and easy to find from the lake. There are plenty of lounge and folding chairs and table, swing and swim ladder, fishing poles and life jackets, etc. As always, our canoes, paddle boat and john boat are included in the rental. Motorized boats may be available by separate agreement. Dock and pathway are lighted for after dark activities.

Availability of motorized amenities is heavily dependent upon the condition in which the previous guest has left them, and therefore may only be available for use if their condition warrants.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The house is exceptionally clean and has everything you might need from pots and pans to trash bags. The layout of the house provides privacy. There's a paddleboat, a canoe, a jon boat and you can swim off the dock. Dan met us with all of the instructions we needed, from where he keeps the minnow bucket and to where the best bait store was. It has a narrow driveway, ok for my van but don't drive a bus or RV. There are places to eat, a WalMart, Dicks, etc within a few miles. The one and only problem we had was the walk up from the dock. It's far too steep for the elderly or people who have health problems. If not for that walk up I'd be happy to stay here again. It was well worth the money!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the lake and the house was all that we needed. The kids loved swimming in the lake by the dock. It was very quiet the whole time that we were there. The hot tub was great! The house was very clean and well kept.

Fall Break

  • 4 of 5

We live nearby and thought that spending time at the lake for our fall break would be a great way to relax. We booked this home and were pleased with the decision.

My husband met the owner in the afternoon and got a run down on the home, location of items in the home, and some information about nearby places to eat. The home was easy to find both from the street and the lake. By the time I arrived with the kids my husband had started unpacking and had our boat at the dock (normally kept at Port Royale). The dock was large enough to accommodate the owners boat (which is kept there) and our 21ft ski boat.

Our daughter loved riding in the paddle boat, and our son enjoyed using the canoe. There were also several lounge chairs on deck if you like to catch some rays. If you need a life jacket you can probably find one in your size (they had lots) we have our own. We also enjoyed the hot tub every night that we were there- It was CLEAN and sanitary.

The home was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans and dishes. We enjoyed our meals on the deck overlooking the lake. They also had plenty of towels and extra blankets if needed.

The driveway is steep but not too bad. The home is not new, but is not showing its age in a bad way. It was nice, comfortable and we enjoyed our stay.

Long weekend rental

  • 4 of 5

We rented the cabin for a long weekend, and we were pleased with the accommodations. The place was clean and we had no issues with bugs in the cabin. The hot tub worked fine and we used it on several nights. We enjoyed spending time at the dock, swimming and fishing.We rented the jet ski and even though it was an older model, it worked fine. We had a great time cruising around tubing.

The owner provided good service, meeting us at the agreed upon time to check in, and promptly refunding our deposit after our stay.

I would rent this cabin again, and I would recommend it a friend.

Horrible Stay

  • 1 of 5

My family and I rented this property and was very dissapointed; needless to say i should have followed my first mind. The pictures alone were very discouraging. However, there were no other properties available during the weekend we rented this property therefore, we settled. The home was beyond filthy and smelled like it had been closed up for a year. We immediately opened the living room patio glass doors just so that the "basememt" smell could air out. The furniture was filthy as if the cloth, dated couches, have never been steam cleamed. Bugs were all over the place. I get that its a "cabin" or "hut" as i would call it, but the bugs were as if the home had never been exterminated. The bed and bedding was cheap and dated, the kitchen was the size of a closet and the the kitchen drawers had food left over from a previous stay-absolutely gross. The owner stalked the home as if it were a mansion, and the outdated, half-functioning hot tub should be removed from the advertisement. The owner will tell you that he has a ton of "lake" activities for your enjoyment but will either want to charge and (not refund) your money or forget to tell you that the John Boat and paddle boat looks as if they were purchased from a garage sale and would serve better in the trash. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME! Trust me, there are a lot of other properties you should consider that will be well worth your time, effort and money. Let the owner keep using this filthy home for him and his family- spare yours!
