- I caught this shot on the dock behind the Lake Brentwood Motel in Avon Park, Florida. The motel is listed in the travel book “Hidden Florida – the Adventures Guide.” Serene, beautiful, and boats are free to all customers.
My fiance just got back from a boys golf trip, and once again, he raved about the cabins they all stayed in at Richard B. Russell State Park near Atlanta, Georgia. I’d better check this place out, I thought. And as soon as I did, I wanted to go. Not only were all the cabins on or very close to the lake, but there’s an 18-hole championship golf course called Arrowhead Pointe, a huge, gorgeous lake where you can go water skiing and rowing, disc golf, beach volleyball and miles of hiking and biking trails.
And, imagine waking up to this every morning outside your cabin:
Not bad, right?
As for the cabins themselves, they’re all very “cottage-ey” and rustic looking and have plenty of space. It appears that they’re all two-bedroom cottages with comfy beds, large living areas and most have great views of the lake. The surrounding state park is beautiful.
These cabins sound like a wonderful getaway opportunity for either a couple or a small group, since there’s something for everyone in every season. And if you want to rough it a bit more, you can camp outdoors underneath the stars, too.
Perfect cabins for every season – including chilly winters when you can crawl up in front of the cozy fireplaces!
