It’s hotter than the average Georgia summer, and we’re all frustrated with “cabin fever.” The best remedy? Pick from one of these lake house rentals not too far from home!
These lakefront cabin rentals offer the chance to get away safely…with the opportunity to take out the boat… meander on kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards…go for a cool dip…catch a fish…and more.
We share lake vacation rental options…plus several river and creekside escapes as well. Several are also pet-friendly (and a few are on the golf course!)
Whichever lake house rental you try, it’s bound to be refreshing and a lot more fun than lounging at home!
