The open floor plan includes a great room with large sliding doors leading to the private deck overlooking the lake.

The wraparound multilevel deck offers plenty of seating and shade and will be the centerpiece for your vacation memories.

There are 3 cable TVs; the living room TV is smart-enabled for streaming, and secure wireless internet.
Bear Creek Lake is a quiet wooded cove of Lake Sinclair on the Northwest side, located in Eatonton, GA, west of 441; conveniently located for getting supplies - groceries, liquor, dining options, and other services are 10-15 minutes from the cottage in either direction.

We had an amazing time this weekend. We enjoyed being away to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday on a new lake! We had a couple of local dogs that ended up hanging out with us all weekend but all of the neighbors and community were super sweet and helpful to us for finding their owner!
We enjoyed being right on the water and having our boat with us! Beautiful views, lake is a little muddy/dirty but that didn't really stop us from enjoying a few boat rides and swimming.
The only thing we were missing was trash bags but there is a store just a few minute boat ride away!!
We had a great trip! The house is very clean and nicely decorated. The dock and outdoor area is nice as well. The water is very shallow off the dock so not much jumping in but you can float and swim a little. We rented a boat near by and went on the lake one day but mainly just played at the house with our kids.
Loved Bear Creek Cottage! This home is so private and cozy, we didn't want to leave. We visited Lake Sinclair during Memorial Day weekend and even though the main parts of the lake were busy, the cove where this home is located was quiet and serene. I enjoyed sneaking out on the deck before the rest of my family was awake to enjoy my coffee while watching the sunrise and listening to nature. Already planning our next trip!
This cottage was amazing it was immaculate,cozy, fun and a great place to spend with family totally recommend coming and visiting.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bear Creek Cottage. The setting is gorgeous and feels very private and secluded, although it is easy to get into town for groceries and the like. We spent a lot of time on the deck and on the dock, taking in the views and listening to the birdsong. Inside the cottage, everything is thoughtful in terms of both amenities and decor.
This is a beautifully updated lake home with gorgeous details and tons of comfort in mind. The kitchen is fully stocked, making cooking and clean up a breeze for our family. We spend time here to get away from the busy in our life and recharge. You will not find a more perfect location to do just that! The secluded cove on the lake is quiet, not highly traveled, and perfect for quietly reading a book on the scenic deck, playing in the water, fishing, or telling stories and making s'mores at the fire pit. We make great memories and come back relaxed and recharged!
We had the incredible opportunity to take my husband's parents and his grandfather with us to this beautiful cabin. We fished and cooked dinner every night, and had the most wonderful time talking and laughing together while we watched the turtles bob about off the dock. Because of Covid, they weren't able to attend our wedding, and it just made our whole year to be able to spend time together in such an absolutely perfect setting. The home was extremely clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated, sunsets were spectacular, and the service by the management company was more than we could have hoped for. We'll cherish this trip forever!
Fantastically comfortable lake house with all the modern conveniences. Great layout contributes to family time with a great view of the lake from the open layout gathering area. Plenty of comfortable bedrooms for our entire family. We visited during late Fall for a lake / football weekend with easy access to Athens. Too cold to swim but we really enjoyed the rented pontoon boat (H20 Rentals and Twin Bridges Marina). Evenings on the quiet cove by the firepit - perfect. Can't wait to come back for summer time trip.
Bear Creek Cottage, nestled into a serene cove of the gorgeous Lake Sinclair, was exactly the tranquil getaway I was looking for. The inside of the house was very clean with adorable rustic décor throughout, but the views and abundant spots to hang around outside really made this the perfect getaway. We spent our days in tune with the beautiful nature around us, grilling out on the porch, sitting around the firepit, and fishing right off the dock. There was such a comfort to this relaxing setting that made my vacation here one for the books and we shall surely return!
We loved our stay! Everything we needed and more was provided. The view of the lake was very relaxing and the home was beautiful and clean! We will definitely be back next year.
Clean and well appointed. Owners leave detailed notes for how everything in the house works. Very helpful.
The house and the outdoor amenities gave us the perfect place for a Thanksgiving and the kitchen was fully equipped to cook a holiday meal. Would definitely stay here again!
This lakehouse had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. It is in pristine condition.
