VRBO "Exceptional" 4BR Home Lake Sinclair/Eatonton Sleeps 14 - SCREENED IN PORCH

Eatonton, Georgia

Welcome to Moose Redemption Lodge!
We have opened 2022 calendar for one week booking Saturday to Saturday - time to book is now!
Bring your family and come hide away on a calm secluded cove on beautiful Lake Sinclair where you may find a cheaper vacation spot but we don't believe you will find a better one! As of this day in September 2021, we are the only established large property on Lake Sinclair with an "Exceptional" rating - the absolute highest available!

We have opened up our lovely home for just a few rentals per year as we enjoy being here so much!! This home is NOT available for any graduation, prom, after-prom, Spring Break, weddings or any other type of gathering or party with guests not listed on the reservation.

Our house is ideal for three couples and up to 8 kids!

Our Home Features:
4 Bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms. There are 3 bedrooms on the main level (one King Master, 2 Queens) + 3 bathrooms. There is 1 Bunk Room downstairs which includes EIGHT Twin Beds and another Full bath & shower right outside the Room. The House has high speed Internet, 4 TV's with large cable package and ROKU devices with HULU (on 2 TV's) for all your streaming services.
Our home features a large screened-in (absolutely ESSENTIAL at the lake) living porch, with ceiling fans, overlooking the lake and the incredible sunsets.

Located on Lake Sinclair, Eatonton - near Milledgeville, this beautiful house with a deep water dock (ideal for boating, swimming or fishing) maintains its charm and seclusion while still only an 18 minute drive to Walmart, Kroger and numerous other stores. We catch fish right off the dock but throw most of them back!

You can access the lake from both the upstairs and downstairs right down to our dock where you have use of the two kayaks, paddle board, air pumps and numerous recreational toys. (We have at least 14 life jackets) We just added an outdoor ping pong table for a little added activity.
Enjoy the spectacular sunsets and finish a perfect day with some s'mores around the fire-pit.

Lastly, don't forget to take the ubiquitous pic of your whole crew kneeling, sitting and standing around the garden swing, under the fragrant jasmine covered trellis.

We are testing allowing guests to bring one small dog but there is a carpet shampoo fee of $125 as we like to keep the house extremely clean for all guests. The fee can be paid with the reservation or separately to the carpet dude!

The small print:

** Our home is not available for any graduation, prom, after-prom, Spring Break, weddings or any other type of gathering /party with guests not listed on the reservation or 100% of the deposit will be forfeited - same with unannounced pets!
The use of any floatation device/toys/furniture by the lake and on the dock (including kayaks, rafts, canoes, any type of boat, ski gear of any sort, or any water craft) is strictly and in perpetuity, USED AT YOUR OWN RISK.
The rates quoted are for up to eight guests. Each additional guest is an additional cost. In order for VRBO to keep the cost as low as possible for a small family, they offer homeowners the option to price their Home lower for say six or eight guests but charge for each additional guest. (This is supposedly visible as you scroll down their page). Our home is ideal for three couples with 6 to 8 kids, so the cost per couple becomes more affordable but enter the correct number of guests to calculate the final cost. There is one water heater so . . . plan accordingly!!
The house has video surveillance and we ask guests to disconnect the cameras upon arrival. Primary guest will be asked to provide a copy of their drivers license. Check-in time is 5 pm and checkout is 10 am. Unfortunately, during the summer, we have to be strict with these times IF other guests are arriving the same day. Guests are asked to drop off their trash as they leave the area or the maid's husband can do it for an additional $50. Sorry but the 4 top bunk beds are not made up as the maids can't get up there! Sheets, pillows etc are on each top bunk bed.

Occupant's are obligated to abide by all of the requirements of the Putnam County ordinances, state and federal law, and such a violation of any of these rules may result in the immediate termination of the agreement and eviction from the premises, as well as potential liability for payment of fines levied.????

By renting the house you agree to all of the above and relinquish the property owners of any and all responsibility in the event of any type of incident, injury or accident.

    Great house on the lake, very clean, excellent location in a cove with tons of water and yard toys. Wonderful house with plenty of space. The bunk room was perfect for a big group of teens.

    Our family enjoyed the peaceful retreat-like atmosphere of this wonderful home. The water access was sandy and the water was clear - very deep at the edge of the dock. The owner provided kayaks and lily pads which my preteen grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable and it was supplied with all the necessities. The kids really loved the bunk beds in the lower level. The screened porch is the biggest asset - perfect for meals and board games! We have stayed at 3 other properties over the years on Lake Oconee but we all voted this was the best of all!. We loved the fire pit and adirondack chairs for marshmallow roasts and the dock is equipped with a nice patio table and chairs for watching the beautiful sunsets and enjoying the peaceful mornings. We caught catfish and sunfish right from the dock! Tony provided very helpful information on the house and the area and he was always available by phone during our stay. If you choose to book this home, you will not be disappointed! We will be back!

    Top-notch all the way

    We've rented a good number of vacation homes over the years, but this was definitely our best experience. The house was first-class. I don't think Tony and his family rent the house too much - I imagine they spend a lot of time there themselves - and I think that's one of the reasons the property is in such great condition. Thank you Tony for allowing us to enjoy your home. For our trip, three families vacationed together in this incredible lake house. Our party consisted of 6 adults and 7 children (ages 11-17). This house was perfect for our group, as each couple had their own designated bathroom on the main floor. The downstairs was mainly enjoyed by the kids. The downstairs bunk room was perfect, as all of the kids loved being able to be together. They enjoyed hanging out, playing games (which were provided) and watching movies. With this many people, it was crucial to have enough room to keep all of our groceries and drinks for the week cold ... so it was a huge plus to have the second full refrigerator downstairs. The home was beautifully decorated and many special touches that you don't usually see at a rental. The kitchen was fully stocked with essentials and many unexpected but much appreciated items. Everything was high quality, including the towels, bedding, etc. Even the provided toiletries (hand soap, bar soap, toiletries) were high quality and much better than what we usually experience when we rent a house. The living and dining room area was spacious for playing games, eating, and spending time together. The screened in patio was a nice place to enjoy the view of the backyard, dock, and lake. We spent most days down at the dock and in the lake. There were several lake toys and life vests that were available to use. The small refrigerator at the dock was very convenient. many nights were spent around the fire pit and playing games in the yard. We also rented a boat for a few days. The lake was beautiful and the kids enjoyed tubing and knee boarding. Tony was extremely responsive and available for a quick question if needed. He actually checked in with us a few times throughout the week to make sure everything was good, including right when we arrived. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely home and hope we will be able to return again in the future.

    Relaxing Week at the Lake

    My parents, my sister’s family and I went for a relaxing week at the end of June. The weather was perfect and we spent a lot of time swimming, fishing and floating around the lake. The dock is perfect for all of those activities. The fenced in yard was excellent for our two old dogs. The house was great and the kids loved their area downstairs. When we weren’t on the dock, we spent a lot of time sitting on the screened porch. If you need to run out to grab something you forgot, there are a few places within a couple of miles. Tony, the owner, was super available and answered any questions very quickly. I always wonder about the beds before I go to a rental. The beds at this rental lean to the former side. We had an excellent time and wouldn’t heasitate to go back again!

    The house was perfect! We loved the large great room with the fireplace and beautiful views of the lake. The lake and all of the water toys were awesome! Even though it was December, our kids had a blast kayaking around and even jumping in! Tony was very responsive before we arrived and while we were there. We were incredibly grateful for his handyman who helped us get a Christmas tree and have it set up and taken down once we left. It made our trip even more perfect! We also greatly appreciated Tony’s attention to COVID cleaning and respect for his housekeepers to make sure we were all healthy before they came back in to clean once we had left. We would highly recommend staying in this home.

    Fantastic experience!

    Property was awesome as advertised and working with Tony was a pleasure. We had 6 adults , 2 infants and a toddler and the accommodations could not have been better ! The nice big yard was perfect for the 4 yr old and his love for swinging the baseball bat and the kayaks and paddle board were enjoyed by the parents with the one year olds. Even Mimi hopped on the paddle board. We spent a lot of time just hanging on the dock and the sunsets we’re incredible! Definitely will be looking forward to a return trip.

    Almost afraid to say just how awesome it was!

    We honestly had one of the best experiences renting through VRBO EVER this week - before Covid we traveled with our family quite heavily, and have had both good and bad experiences with rentals. Tony's place has exceeded all of our expectations - it is ALL that it claims to be and more. We were thrilled with the home, the area, the lake, the thoughtful amenities - the only reason I don't want to rave too much is because I am afraid it will get too busy and we won't be able to go back! The home is very well set up for families or small groups of friends, and the lake itself was inviting and not too busy to enjoy with the kids. (We rented a boat from a local marina and docked it right at the home.) We would most definitely return. The kids were truly upset to leave and are already asking for us to make plans again.

    Everything about this house was wonderful. Tony is a thoughtful, considerate, informative host who thought of everything possible to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The travel from Atlanta was super easy and quick. The house is very easy to find but nicely tucked away. The beds were super comfy, the kitchen was very well appointed, our kids loved their kidzone with the bunk beds downstairs, and we all really enjoyed the screened porch overlooking the well kept back garden and the lake. The views from the dock are so pretty, especially the sunset and the lake was very peaceful and quiet considering it was a holiday weekend, which we really enjoyed. It was brilliant being able to use the lily-pad, kayaks and paddleboard, the children spent most of the weekend in the lake! We really got to relax, which was wonderful, and we can't wait to go back! Thank you!

    Rented this property for 4 days with 14 people staying in the house. Group included 4 adults with the rest teenagers and college kids enjoying a few days at the lake before heading back to school. House handled the group better than expected. Bunk room was very comfortable and handled the crew very well. Master BR was huge. Kids enjoyed the fire pit a few times. Backyard was as nice as the pictures allowing for corn hole and frisbee. This area of Lake Sinclair was very clear and water was great while we skied, tubed and simply floated off the dock. Owners exceeded all expectations with excellent communication. I know we will be back next summer. Highly recommend.

    Tony was an AMAZING host. So attentive and responsive. The house was perfect for our three families of 4 (12 people total...6 adults and 6 kids ranging from 3 years old to 7 years old). Here are just a few of the things we loved: - The house was really clean and the bunk room downstairs was perfect for the kiddos (8 bunks in total for sleeping...and a TV downstairs for kids too). - There were 4 FULL bathrooms...such a bonus! - Screened in porch. This was a must IMO. The bugs during the summer would make it unpleasant to eat outside without a screen at night. - Loved all the amenities for the loved the lil-pad, paddleboard and kayaks. We played a lot off the dock. THe fridge in the boat house was also nice! - We rented a boat for the week...highly recommend this!! Lake Sinclair is a very chill lake...not at all crowded and not really many places to go on the water (we cooked all meals at home). It was fun to get out each day on the boat. Many days on the lake we were pretty much the only boat on the water. We had a tube and wakeboard and TOny had a kneeboard too. There is also a rope swing you can visit on the lake and a few beaches to chill at too. - Firepit with all the amazing chairs...great for making smores and sitting around chatting. - HUGE backyard....great for running and playing and yard games. WE brought a few with us (ladderball, cornhole, frisbee Kan Jam, footballs, etc). - This property is a lake house that isn't really in a town or really close to almost all your meals will be cooked/prepped at the house. We loved it...loved our lazy mornings and afternoon fun and not having to go or be anywhere. DId a BIG grocery shop the first day and then went back a few other times to grab necessities but that was it. ONe warning...having nothing to do with property but if you are allergic to bees, take note that during the summer in Georgia there are quite a few yellow jackets. WE had quite a few stings but not a big deal unless you do have an allergy...take an EpiPen!

    We truly enjoyed our stay at this lake home! It was the perfect spot for our two families to reconnect and have fun together. The house had many areas to hang out and move throughout without feeling on top each other. There was plenty of sleeping options (the bunk room was amazing)! The house had everything we needed to cook and have meals at “home”. The house is positioned perfectly in a cove where boats weren’t speeding by and kids could play out in the water safely! The kids enjoyed the use of the lily pad and jumping from the dock! The owner was easy to work with and accessible for any questions we may had. He provided lots of options for food and boat rental! We would definitely stay here again!

    We rented this property to accommodate friends and family for our sons wedding which was held across the cove. Everyone was so impressed with the house and all that went with it. Tony was great to work with and provided all the info we needed to address every issue that could possibly come up. The house is huge enough for everyone to have their privacy yet was very much a home. We ate breakfasts on the screened porch... we made s’mores in the fire pit at night.. The kitchen was so well appointed and really geared for entertaining. Was where we all gathered together. I cannot think of even one single suggestion to improve it. They have thought of everything... right down to room spray in each bathroom! We actually closed on our lake retirement home while there but I can honestly say we would stay here again in a heartbeat and one of the couples that stayed with us indicated they are thinking of doing a family getaway to Lake Sinclair and would definitely rent this property for it... it is perfect! Thanks Tony and family!

    We have stayed at several properties on Lake Sinclair but this home quickly became our family favorite. The home itself is so inviting that you instantly feel right at home and comfortable. The home is thoughtfully designed so that everyone, from adults to children, have privacy and their own space to enjoy. The bunk room and lower level living room, with its' own refrigerator, was definitely a favorite with the kids. The home is more than sufficient in all the amenities it has to offer, there is nothing you have at home that you don't have access to there. The dock and boat house are an added bonus and very spacious. We had plenty of room to dock our pontoon boat, 2 jet skis and still had room to fish and swim right off the dock. The home is conveniently located on the water just a quick boat ride to Sinclair Marina for fuel and anything you might need during your stay. I could go on and on about how nice the house and location was but I think more importantly to mention was the thoughtfulness and kindness shown by our host and home owner, Tony. He was extremely helpful, very informative and always available to answer any questions we had. He even went well out of his way to help us locate a mechanic when we had an issue with our pontoon boat during our trip. We can't thank him enough for his hospitality and thoughtfulness!! Would absolutely highly recommend this home to anyone planning a trip to the area. Such a wonderful home and property that allowed us to make precious family memories, we will definitely be visiting this home again very soon!!

    We loved it! What a lovely home.

    This beautiful lake house has everything you need for a wonderful family trip to the lake. The owner (tony) could not have been more helpful in making sure we felt at home and had everything we needed. The house came with two kayaks, a stand up paddle board, and plenty of floats and activities to enjoy the lake. We rented a pontoon boat from the nearby marina and kept it at the dock for the weekend. The kids absolutely loved the bunk bed room and making s'mores at the fire pit. Would absolutely come back and stay again!!
