Property description

Congratulations - You have found the perfect vacation home on Lake Lanier - only 1 hour from Atlanta! Whether you love to canoe, kayak & fish, explore the N GA Mountain waterfalls & wineries or just relax and get away from it all, our beautiful mountain home is designed for a perfect vacation AND it's on Lake Lanier. In the Spring and Summer, our home is a tranquil get-away offering great fishing (right off the dock) and quiet North Lake Lanier water. When Fall is around the corner, consider our home as your home base for a Fall Leaf Tour, a visit to Uncle Shuck's corn maze or a visit to a Fall Festival or Apple Orchard. ***Don't forget to ask about our boat rental discount at Gainesville Marina!

Our 3-story home is nestled down a lush, wooded hillside and the interior is decorated in whites, blues and nautical touches. The private platform dock is in plenty of water (narrow, private cove, but with steep underwater terrain) with room to tie up boats & jet skiis for the entire length of your stay. We have a 24' Ebbtide and a 17' Boston Whaler, that fit great!

This lake home is well appointed w/ 3 main/upper floor bedrooms AND a lower terrace level bedroom w/bath, bonus room w/kitchenette & Queen sleeper sofa. The 4 bedrooms all have an attached bath. The layout consists of 2 bedrooms with a Jack & Jill bath on the upper floor, Master bedroom w/ attached bath on the main floor, additional bedroom w/attached bath on the lower floor. The main floor features kitchen w/granite counters & a window seat/ breakfast nook, a dining area with 12 foot bench wall and large table, family room with wood burning fireplace that is open to a huge 3-sided glass Sunroom, perfect for bird watching and 'Oh, the views!'. This sunroom feels like a glass treehouse that is suspended over the lake. Comfortably furnished for coffee, cocktails or a well-deserved nap, the sunroom is one of our favorite spots! The lower terrace level features a 400+ square foot bonus room, Queen sleeper sofa, kitchenette and extra dining area, laundry 'room' and outside access.

The outside is just as wonderful! This 'Hidden Gem' has a large covered deck with wicker furniture, upper deck with patio table set, a grill area and several intimate outside seating areas. The walk to the lake is a short flight of stairs tthrough a lush selection of Mountain Laurel, Rhododendrun and Azalea and then a level path to the 2nd dock.

Our private platform dock, situated closer to the mouth of the cove in 'deep' water, is a party deck without the slip below. If you love to fish, you will delight at all the bait fish you can catch right off the dock. If water sports is your thing, you will be pleased with how many 'toys' you can fit around the dock and our proximity to boat ramps. Our outside areas provide plenty of places to dine, entertain, romp in the woods or just sit back and watch the lake.

Hidden Gem - Chestatee features two (2) 42' flat screen tv's (in the gathering rooms), cards/board games and magazines, wireless access, and a washer/dryer for your use.

Our lake home is perfect for families, friends, corporate retreats, girls weekends and 'Surprise' parties. Located 1 mile up from Nix Bridge Public Boat Ramp, 5 miles from the North Georgia Premium Outlets and a few miles from a beautiful golf course you are in a private escape, yet still close to it all. Golfing, tubing, wine country and waterfalls are just a bit North of our home. Dahlonega, w/ great shopping & dining, is just 20 minutes North. Alpine Helen, Cleveland and Brasstown Bald are within an hour. Whatever activities you love, Hidden Gem - Chestatee is a great place to enjoy it all!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: As native Atlantans, we purchased this lake home to use as a weekend get-away and to share with others. We love to boat, fish, and paddle board, as well as explore the North Georgia Mountains and all they have to offer. We listed our other 'Hidden Gem' lake house on VRBO last year, with great success, so in 2014 we thought we would add another!

Why the Owner Chose Dawsonville:
We fell in love with this lot. The home is more than halfway down a beautiful wooded lot, allowing the water to be closer, a bit deeper and affording great privacy. The cove is small and there is seldom any other traffic (except the great blue herons!) Come visit and see for yourself.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Tucked away on the North end of Lake Lanier, our home is ideal. Our cove opens up to great skiing areas and is only a mile from Nix Bridge public boat ramp. The views from the home are lovely. The homes in the area are well tended and our outside areas are completely private.
