Property description

This gorgeous, town & country style Lake Lanier retreat sits on approximately 1.5 acres in a private, wooded setting. Each bedroom has easy access to our outdoor areas and great views of the lake. There are two large family room areas each with their own large screen TVs. There are two kitchens, one upstairs and one downstairs, each with their own dining room tables. All bedrooms, both kitchens, and the family rooms open to the outside through sliding glass doors and have awesome lake views. The entire back of the house opens to our huge outdoor deck overlooking the lake. Half of the deck in the middle section is covered and screened (we even have an outdoor, large flatscreen TV in this covered sunroom area overlooking the lake), or you can enjoy the open air parts of the massive deck. Modern appliances in the kitchen. 3 of the bedrooms have queen size beds, and the 4th bedroom has three single beds (perfect as the kids room). The downstairs sofa in the downstairs family room also opens up to a queen size bed. The upstairs sofa also makes for a comfortable extra sleeping spot. Therefore, the house easily sleeps 12. Gentle slope walk to the lake where you have use of our huge, double slip, two story, party platform dock (always on deep water even when lake was at its lowest levels). Our home is located in the central part of the lake and you can boat to numerous restaurants within 15 minutes. Our large cove is perfect for water skiing and wake boarding. This house was specifically designed to accommodate multiple families, especially with kids. Each story has its own separate kitchens and family room areas. Each family room and all the bedrooms have nice flat screen TVs, with HD access fed by DirectTV. We have life vests for all the adults and kids, and you will feel like this is your home away from home. Our huge wooded lot also gives you the feeling you have escaped from the world, while you are still an easy 5 mile drive from Gainesville with multiple grocery stores, restaurants, Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, delivery food services, movie theaters, and numerous other attractions. Lake Lanier Island Resorts is an easy 20 minute drive if you want to have fun in the sun in their awesome water park. Boat rentals also available within a 15 minute boat and car ride. Our home is fully equipped like a hotel so simply bring your bathing suit, and enjoy. If your there in the winter, enjoy our two fireplaces, one on each level in the two family rooms. This really is the perfect family lake house retreat. We also have two fireplaces and even an outdoor fireplace for your enjoyment in the cool evenings.

    Lake Lanier (officially Lake Sidney Lanier) is a reservoir in the northern portion of the U.S. state of Georgia. It was created by the completion of Buford Dam on the Chattahoochee River in 1956, and is also fed by the waters of the Chestatee River. The lake encompasses 38,000 acres (150 km2) or 59 square miles of water, and 692 miles (1,114 km) of shoreline at normal level, a 'full summer pool' of 1,071 feet (326 m) above mean sea level. It was named for poet Sidney Lanier, and was built and is operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It is patrolled by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GDNR). ...moreless

The City of Gainesville is surrounded on 3 sides by the beautiful Lake Lanier. Our lake offers incredible leisure opportunities - from fishing guided tours with local experts to a leisurely day water skiing with friends. The lake is popular with boaters, houseboats, jet skiers and others, particularly around the summer holidays. Over 7.5 million people per year visit the lake, including its marinas and the Lake Lanier Islands water park. The rowing and sprint canoeing events during the 1996 Summer Olympics were held at the lake. It also hosted the canoe sprint World Championships in 2003 at the Lanier Canoe and Kayak Club.
