Gainesville house description

Our calendar is up to date so you can make your plans with confidence.
We have deep water and beautiful views at our perfect lake location on Lake Lanier Retreat. A superb get away for every season with a private dock, great amenities and loads of beautiful indoor space. This house's 4500 sq. feet will give you a superior cottage feeling. Striking blue waters and a lush undeveloped island are enjoyed from the home's many rear windows and large deck. With a large private dock only 50 yards from the backdoor, this house almost insists you come and stay for fun, relaxation, and time with family and friends. Boasting 7 beautifully decorated bedrooms on three levels, you will find the layout convenient for your family, an extended reunion, or sharing with friends. Indoor fun is easy in the great room or finished basement with a pool table, ping pong, WI-FI, and large screen TV. The house is an easy commute from Atlanta and close to lots of entertainment and shopping.

Keywords: house, lake, ping pong, view, dock, large, family, reunion, pool, lanier, summer, fire place, boating.

              Location

              Lake Lanier has been the playground to the Metro-Atlanta area for years & this location, only 7 miles off of exit 17 of GA 400, is ideal. Although you are about 30 minutes from the best shopping, restaurants, services, and entertainment, the last few miles will feel like a country drive through hills and valleys, past old churches and barns as you catch glimpses of the lake. Your spot on the lake is so close to big water and yet sheltered on a calm inlet. The area marinas offer boat and jet ski rentals, there is a public boat ramp a mile from the house, and a small beach is across the inlet from your dock. You will be at the doorway of the North GA Mountains which means nature's beauty is a short drive away. If you need to get to the city your drive will be less than an hour. Our neighborhood is quiet and peaceful so it is not well suited to night time parties. On all other counts, our Lake Lanier Retreat truly offers the best of both worlds.
