Gainesville house description

This 5 bedroom/4.5 bath house is perfect for enjoying fall weather with amazing views of Lake Lanier, changing tree colors, and beautiful views of the North Georgia Mountains. When you're not enjoying the views, the house also has 60' flat screen TV's in both the living room and game room that are great for watching College and NFL games. In addition, there are two master suites at Sunset Summit. The upstairs master has beautiful views of the lake from the bedroom and bathroom and a large balcony to relax on while you enjoy your morning coffee or wind down at the end of your day. The master on the main floor has direct access to the pool deck and views of both the pool and lake. The dual masters ensure that multiple people have equally impressive views and amenities. We have additional photos and information available at www.lakelanierhouserental.com

The home furnishings and floor plan are perfect for a small group or multi-family/multi-generational groups. This property was custom built by a home builder and every detail from the interior to the massive retaining walls and landscaping were meticulously executed. The home was further renovated three years ago. Michelle and I plan to continue to make this property even better and we have no doubt that your group will thoroughly enjoy this three-level house regardless of the purpose of your trip. We've already booked groups for family reunions, friend gatherings, Road Atlanta race weekends, races at the Olympic Rowing Venue, lodging for a wedding party at Walters Barn, and group fishing trips.

This home has amazing open water lake views that are unobstructed from most rooms in the house and the pool deck which is very uncommon for Lake Lanier. There is also a double-slip dock with party deck that you can use with your own boat or rent one from Gainesville Marina. We also have a four seat pedal boat available for our guests. This northeastern part of the lake is calm for fishing or water skiing or just playing around the water or using our pedal boat.

Don Carter State park is directly across the water from the house. This is the only state park on Lake Lanier (all other parks are federally run). The park includes 1,300 acres with great amenities such as horseback riding trails, hiking/walking trails, sand beach, camping and cottage sites (please ask us about how we can accommodate larger groups than 14 if needed). The park can be easily accessed with our pedal boat or your own boat/rental boat. For further information on the park, please see the included link in the 'Links & Video' section of this listing.

Last but not least, this home is very convenient to multiple venues including: Chateau Elan, Road Atlanta, Olympic Rowing Venue, Walters Barn wedding venue, UGA, Gainesville, Cumming, and the North East Georgia Mountains. Please contact us if you are attending an event in any of these areas and are looking for a getaway with amazing views but within close proximity. We look forward to helping families and friends make wonderful memories for years to come.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2014

              About the owner: Michelle and I live in Atlanta and have always loved Lake Lanier. We've had a boat on the lake since 2007 and finally took the leap to own a house on this beautiful lake.

              Why the Owner Chose Gainesville:
              We've both always wanted to own property on the water and this home has some of the best views we've ever seen on Lake Lanier. Because 99% of homes on Lake Lanier have Corp of Engineers property between their property and the water, most homes have no view or at best partial/seasonal views. This home has unobstructed, open-water views from most rooms in the house. The North Georgia Mountains are also in close proximity and you can see them from parts of the property. Sunset Summit has beautiful views and scenery year round which is unique to most lake houses. This home was also extremely well built with a lot of custom features and was recently renovated. We are looking forward to sharing this property and helping others create lasting memories on Lake Lanier.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The property has amazing views of Lake Lanier from most windows in the house and also has fall and winter views of the North Georgia Mountains. The house also includes dual master bedrooms and a beautiful pool and hot tub overlooking the water. There is also a short walk to the lake with a double-slip dock with party deck that you are free to use with your boat or our paddle boat while you visit the property. Lastly, the only state park on Lake Lanier is directly across the water from this home. The park offers additional amenities that are easily accessed via water from this home.
