Gainesville house description

Amazing view of peaceful cove with lots of trees. You will love siting on the deck at this house or a few steps to the dock and enjoy looking out on the lake. New top of the line aluminum dock with sun deck has room to tie up your boat. The house has a very warm feeling with mostly hardwoods throughout. The entire back of the house on both levels is all windows so you will always be enjoying the view wherever you look. The house is far away from any main roads and is not on the busy part of Lake Lanier so you will really enjoy the peace and quiet. The cove is large and not busy so great for hanging on a raft or letting the kids swim.

No parties whatsoever are allowed! The house is on a septic system and will not handle large groups (10 persons max). Ignore this policy and you will likely end up with a very smelly problem that will run you out of the house and cut your stay short. Also the neighbors who live on the lake year around will call the police on any loud parties and will also notify me immediately. This is my family's 2nd home, not an investment property, and is very special to us. Please treat it with love and respect. Thank you!

Dock: It has 110v and 220v power. The boat lift is locked and not available for use because it is custom configured for a V-drive wakeboard boat. This means the covered slip is also not available for use, but there is plenty of space on the side of the dock to tie up your boat. At the dock are two jet ski docks. One holds a canoe that is available for your use and the other is empty and good for launching your kayak or raft.

Path to dock: about 20 steps and is moderately steep. There are more steep paths and less at Lake Lanier so this is in the middle. My 84 old step-father won't attempt the walk any more so take this into consideration if your situation requires a very easy path. The driveway is rather steep as well.

Boat rental: I do not have a boat or wave runner as pictured. They have both been sold. Here are some nearby boat rental choices:

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: My wife and I are blessed with a 2 yr old son and a brand new baby girl. We don't get to use the lake house as much these days so we are renting it out.

                      Why the Owner Chose Gainesville:
                      Every time I visit I never want to leave. Its just so peaceful.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Lots of trees around the house so it feels like a mountain cabin but with a lake just 50 ft away.
