Outside the Gates – Salem Plantation

Salem Plantation, Greensboro GA

Lake Oconee waterfront property in an intimate setting


Salem Plantation

Just a few miles south of the Greensboro exit off I-20, is Linger Longer Road. Most commonly associated as leading to the mega-subdivision of Reynolds Lake Oconee, Linger Longer road is also a thoroughfare off which hidden gems can be found. One of these gems is the Salem Plantation subdivision.

A small, waterfront community, Salem Plantation is home to between 50-60, full and part-time residents who are treated to either an expansive, westerly lake view or a beautiful, serene cove. Listed homes in this neighborhood sell faster than bread off the shelves at WalMart before a snowstorm, so act fast when the opportunity arises.  This intimate, upscale community is known as one of the nicest in the area, and boasts homes ranging from the 300’s in the interior to over 1 million on the water.

Situated in a rolling, wooded landscape, this coveted subdivision is a five-minute drive to Lake Oconee Academy, Publix, and a number of fabulous eateries, Parkside Main 8 Movie Theatre, and the Ritz-Carlton Reynolds. “We didn’t know much about the communities here when we started looking for a lakefront property at Lake Oconee,” begins Salem Plantation homeowners Frank and Penny Tarallo. “We must have looked at 50 homes with Kim and Lin Logan Real Estate. We knew we had to have a lakefront home, but it had to be convenient amenities as well.”  A full-time resident of Chateau Elan in Braselton, the Tarallos were interested in a weekend getaway for family and friends. “So many communities you look at are far off the highway. This location is convenient, and we really enjoy the restaurants near here.”  The Bone Island Grillhouse, Da Corrado’s and Georgia Butts are their faves!
