Gainesville house description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10)

This newly remodeled Lake Lanier home is the perfect spot for your Lake Lanier vacation. The renovation was completed in 2014 and is ready for your stay. Located on a huge cove, this waterfront property has lake views from almost every room in the house. The house comes with a large, private dock with party deck on a quiet area of the lake in Gainesville--sit in the shade down below or up top and get some sun.

This fabulous home on Lake Lanier was purchased because of the great views and the ideal spot on the lake. It is well suited for a family vacation, family reunion or even two or three families staying together. The property is only a few steps to the dock and lake, and the grassy area gently slopes to the water. The house is convenient to shopping and restaurants in Gainesville. Lake Lanier Islands Resort and water park is about 25 minutes away.

There are 4 bedrooms (see below) and 3 full bathrooms and one half bath. There is one bedroom on the main level and the other 3 are upstairs. Two of the 4 bedrooms open to the upstairs deck and have wonderful lake views. You can watch people tube, ski or fish from the house or dock and enjoy the sunset as well. The main living area has large windows overlooking the lake. The kitchen and the eating area can seat 8 people comfortably for dinner and a couple more at the island. There is seating outside on the patio as well.

WI-FI is available. There are two flat screen TV's (satellite service) one on each floor.

On the dock, you can sit and enjoy the sun on the upper part of the large party dock or stay below for more shade or fishing. Either location allows for a great view of lake activities. Port Royale is the closest Marina; Balus Creek or Mountain View are the two closest boat ramps. If interested, we have kayaks available for rent.

****Please note, we do NOT allow events at the home such as weddings, large birthday bashes, bachelor parties, etc.****
We are a residential location and cannot accommodate a large EVENT. Family gatherings, couples, mature women or men's groups are fine and welcome. If you have more than 10 or 11 people, please inquire about suitability of space. We strive to maintain our home in pristine condition and have found party events are not in keeping with the vision for our vacation rental. Thank you for your understanding.

          Year Purchased: 2014

          About the owner: Retired-- time to own a place at the lake.

          Why the Owner Chose Gainesville:
          My son and his wife own a house close by and this house was the perfect location on the lake for me. When all the family and grandchildren are in town we can all gather right there together on the lake for a fun time. The lake views in this house are wonderful and the walk is extremely gentle to the dock.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The view is absolutely fabulous and one of the main reasons for my purchase. The short walk to the dock is also nice.
