Coveted views of the 9th hole and a lakeside background make this charming 3-bedroom, 3.5 bath cottage an exceptional getaway within an exclusive gated community known for its Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course and dramatic waterside scenery. If you’re looking to decompress in cozy accommodations while being surrounded by natural beauty and plenty of neighborhood amenities, Oakton South Cottage is waiting to welcome you to Lake Oconee.
Situated on a partially shaded lot, Oakton South Cottage greets guests with an unmistakable fixture that graces any true southern home: a front porch swing! From here, you’ll have a west-facing view of the sunset and of families out for late afternoon strolls. Stepping inside the front door, another view emerges from the glass French doors directly ahead: the Great Waters golf course. From the back deck, you will be able to enjoy morning coffee and watch dedicated golfers make their way across the green. Later in the day, light the grill and enjoy alfresco dining underneath the strung lights.
In between these two peaceful vistas, you’ll find all the creature comforts of a true getaway: an open concept main level with a full kitchen, dining area, living area, two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, and an open loft on the upper level. The kitchen is light and airy with a wraparound view of the surrounding greens. Here, you’ll have access to built-in appliances (stove, microwave, dishwasher), a coffee maker, and a laundry closet with a stacked washer and dryer. The dining nook seats 6 at the table and three at the counter, but don’t be surprised if mealtime conversations are occasionally interrupted by the silence of watching golf right outside the windows. The panorama continues into the living area, where guests can lounge at the end of a memorable day under the sun. A log-burning fireplace and a flatscreen TV anchor the room and are subtle backdrops for twilight conversations.
Two master suites on the main level provide double the luxury, each with a private bath – ideal for two couples sharing the cottage. The master suite off the living area boasts a queen bed, walk-in closet, private deck access, flatscreen TV, and an en suite bath with a garden tub and a glass-enclosed shower. The second master suite offers a spacious king bed, storage closet, flatscreen TV, and private bath with double-sink vanity, garden tub, and glass-enclosed shower.
Upstairs is an open loft that will immediately entice kids and grandkids. Two twin beds flank a double bed, each separated with a nightstand and table lamp. In addition, there is a wall-mounted flatscreen TV, ceiling fan, and two storage closets. A full bath completes the loft area.
Not only is Oakton South Cottage front-and-center to golf and lakeside views, but it’s also centrally located to the Great Waters marina, clubhouse, and driving range. Nearby, Waterside Village offers something for everyone: day-use docks, swimming pool, tennis court and beach (with fire pit).
At 19,000 acres, Lake Oconee is Georgia’s second-largest lake and is just outside the door. Guests can experience fun under the sun by boat, float, ski, kayak, or canoe. If you’re feeling a little water-logged, 21 miles of hiking and biking trails wind throughout Reynolds. For less strenuous entertainment, there are 10 on-site restaurants among the Reynolds properties, each one meticulously designed to accommodate a variety of palates. For the ultimate indulgence, a 30,000 square-foot spa retreat is located at The Ritz-Carlton and offers a variety of services and treatments. Be sure to check about guest access, as some venues may be restricted to members or residents. Minutes away, you can browse antique shops, boutiques, and local eateries in historic Madison (recently named the Number-One Small Town in America), Greensboro, and Eatonton.
