Recent guest reviews

Stopped here for an overnight on the way to Atlanta. Quaint, clean cabin recently renovated, and the owner was very nice. Can see the lake from the screened in porch, and they have boat rentals. We will be back for a weekend getaway!

The new owners have done a wonderful job with updating this property. They are adorable and clean. If you are looking for a relaxing place on Lake Weiss to spend time with family this is the place. They also rent boats.

The room was very cute and clean and the view of the river was awesome especially at sunset. The owner was very nice and helpful. Will for sure be back for another visit. Thank you Cowen Creek Resort.

Had a wonderful experience paddle boarding on the lake. Clean and safe property, perfect for a weekend getaway with the family. Easily accessible ramps, store, gas, and delicious food! Owners are lovely and very accommodating. The beds in the cabins are clean and so comfortable! Will definitely be coming back this summer.

My family stayed at Cowan Creek Resort for 2 nights. While we were there, we fished, hiked to 2 different waterfalls, watched fireworks, and cooked out. My 8 and 6 year old had a blast! The breakfast biscuits at the restaurant, along with the other items we ordered were excellent! I would certainly go back, especially since we didn't get to kayak due to the uncooperative weather! The new owners are working hard to make it a family friendly place!

Just stopped in for gas and a biscuit. Good quick breakfast. Easy place to put in your boat can buy bait. Has a new pier. If you need a rental you can check and see if anything is available. Don't expect luxury.

Our crew had a great time at pruetts.... yes, the accomodations are dated but it was very clean and what you want for lake fun...we took our dogs and they had fun, too! we enjoyed boating on the rental pontoon..what a beautiful lake....we watched the 4th of july fireworks from the pontoon...first time i had watched fireworks from a boat and it was beautiful!!!! we will definately go again!!!! southern hospitality is a big plus at pruetts!

The owners at the fish camp are very helpful. Fishing is great or just riding on the rental boats. The cabins are not fancy but are fine for fishing or relaxing by the water. I brought my 3 puppies and they had fun, too. I am going back there as often as I can get away for a relaxing time by the water.

pruett;s is ahsome for buddies on a trip or family not all brand new cabins but nicely cleaned need anything its just ask and you will get what u want. theres a store on site for bait or simple things forgoten real nice people . also very quite time to sit on porch at the end of day and reflect on the days catch . because agreat pier to fishlots of fish. have gone for 9 strait years cant wait till march.

Weiss Lake is called the "crappie capitol of the world", and if you are a fisherman it lives up to its name with numbers of large crappie to be had. Pruett's is not a 5 star resort with fancy furnishings, but it is a perfect place to stay for a group of fishermen looking for a getaway. I have stayed in three of the cabins as well as the two person rooms and never had a negative experience. Miss Betty and the rest of the staff has always been very hospitable to me and my group and remembers us by name. There are enough boat slips within 100 yards of any of the rooms or cabins for each guest to keep his boat on the lake, as well as bait and groceries on site. If you are looking for a fun in the sun, pampering resort, go elsewhere. But if you are looking for unmatched crappie fishing and great southern hospitality, Pruett's is a great place to stay.
