We call her Mabel. She's not fancy, but she's neat and clean and has everything that you might need for a weekend getaway, or a stay for as long as you like. Her lovely wooded setting has a slight view of Lake Sydney Lanier and is very peaceful and quiet. She has just been painted inside and out and also sports new decks, front and rear. Her master bedroom has a queen-size bed and it's own bathroom with a garden tub and shower. Separate from the master, are the other two bedrooms, with full-size beds. The fully stocked kitchen should have everything that you need to prepare and enjoy daily meals, including a gas grill, crock pot, microwave, etc. (There are also a number of nearby restaurants, just a few minutes from the house.) The family room is very open to the kitchen and bar area and has a wood-burning fireplace with flat-screened television and a DVD player for watching movies. (Cable, Internet, and Wi-Fi) She does not have granite or hardwood floors, but she does have a coffee pot, stove, microwave, washer and dryer. There are two boat ramps within .7 of a mile and the circle driveway should easily accommodate a trailer, so definitely bring the water toys. There are two canoes at the dock and plenty of room for your boat and toys. There is even a hammock for resting. Did I mention the covered single-slip dock and the fabulous bass fishing?? Come see for yourself!
Pets must be house-trained and well-mannered, and on a leash at all times. There is a tether in the front yard for your convenience. All shots need to be updated of course. and there is a $50. pet fee for each pet. Cats are not allowed....moreless

Bring your boat or rent one at one of the many marinas close by (Port Royale is four miles down the road and several others are close by: Aqualand, Habersham and Bald Ridge. (Bud, at Gainesville Marina, will even deliver and pick up) Lake Lanier Island Waterpark is within 20 minutes by water or land. It offers a family fun-packed day with beaches, water slides, zip lines, kiddie and wave pools, restaurants, etc. while Sunset Cove has live music, concerts, golf and boat docks. It is a happening place all summer long, while boats tether up to have fun and enjoy the scenery. The Dawsonville Outlet Malls are within ten miles of the house, and features many of the stores that you love. If peace and quiet is your thing, venture up just a few miles further and see the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, take a scenic railway tour, white-water rafting, rock climbing, great hiking and waterfalls, or simply ramble among the small towns just north of us like quaint Dahlonega's town square, where you can pan for gold, or visit the town of Helen and go tubing or gem-grubbing, ...maybe even visit a winery or two. Save a few days to head downtown to experience the fine city of Atlanta, where a number of options are waiting including: the Fox Theater, a Braves or Falcons game, great concerts at Chastain or Philips Arena, the High Museum, Georgia Aquarium, Botanical Gardens, Zoo Atlanta, Centennial Olympic Park, Hardrock Cafe, CNN Tower and World of Coke or even Six Flags. ..or, just relax and enjoy the bass fishing, ...some of the best right here in our quiet little cove, just a stroll away.. We just added a new fire pit for those cool evenings. The colors are amazing in fall time too!
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Relocating to Georgia in 1998 with General Motors, our family has really come to love the people and scenery that this gorgeous state has to offer. Growing up in Michigan, and moving around quite a bit, we fell in love with Georgia, where the countryside is amazing and each of the four seasons are uniquely beautiful. We are so fortunate to have beautiful Lake Sydney Lanier in our back yard.
Why the Owner Chose Cumming:
Because she was too cute to resist!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Her best feature is her spectacular setting among the trees, where nature abounds. Relaxing comes natural here, whether it be reading a good book in the hammock, chilling on the back deck, or hiking along the waterfront. Go for a canoe ride and enjoy the peaceful setting in the quiet cove, at sunrise, or anytime. Fisherman come from all around to catch here, so it must be good. Hang out on the deck and grill up the catch. There is a gas grill, table, chairs and umbrella, and even patio lighting for after hours. On cool evenings, a cozy up to the fire pit and roast some marshmallows with a roaring campfire. ...kind of like camping, just better!
