What could be more picturesque than a classically designed white cottage with front porch rocking chairs and backyard access to a shaded park, all while being situated in the middle of a gated resort community along pristine shoreline? If this description sounds too good to be true, you’ll have to visit this lake and golf paradise to experience for yourself the laid-back luxury offered by this 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath retreat and its surrounding natural beauty.
The main level provides plenty of space for traffic flow with an open-concept design of the kitchen, dining, and living area. The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware and serving ware and comes equipped with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher, stovetop oven, microwave, and refrigerator. The dining table offers seating for up to six with two additional cushioned barstools that can be pulled up to the extended counter.
With its vaulted ceiling and multiple windows, the living area is light and airy and is furnished with a sofa, two oversized armchairs, flatscreen TV, log fireplace, and built-in bookcases. Around the corner is also a powder room and a laundry nook with a full-size washer and dryer.
A master on main provides a private oasis with a king bed, dresser, flatscreen TV, and private bath with granite countertop, soaker tub, and step-in glass shower.
From both the master suite and the living area, guests can access the real showstopper: the screened porch that runs the width of the house and boasts a table for six and an adjacent lounge area with cushioned outdoor furniture. It surrounds a wood-burning fireplace and a flatscreen TV recessed behind two French panels. In mild weather, this space beckons al fresco dining, fireside stories, and impassioned commentary while watching the Masters or college football. A few steps off the porch is a paved walkway to the community gazebo, shaded by the canopy of surrounding trees. Just a short walk away is the Linger Longer marina and pavilion.
Upstairs are two guest bedrooms on either side of a balcony that overlooks the living area. A queen bed in one room and two twin beds in the other provide plenty of comfort and space for additional guests. Both rooms share a full bath with granite vanity and tub/shower.
Whether guests are pining for a getaway filled with golf, fishing, boating, or watching peaceful sunrises, Marina Cottage is convenient to all of it and situated just minutes from local shopping and dining. Right outside the gates of Reynolds Lake Oconee are Publix, PJ’s Coffee of New Orleans, The French Hare interiors, and several neighboring boutiques. A few minutes south on 44, explore Harmony Crossing, home to some of our favorite cafes, restaurants, and retail shops. We also recommend visiting the historic districts of downtown Eatonton and downtown Greensboro. Be sure to check out the local events, festivals, and farmer’s markets, too!
