Recent Gainesville property reviews

  • Fantastic lake home!

    "My friends and family have rented a lot of lake homes in recent years, but this home is by far our favorite! The home is spacious, beautifully furnished, and well equipped for cooking and dining with a big group. I highly recommend this property!"

  • Bridal Party Weekend

    "The bride and groom opted to get the entire bridal party together a couple months before their wedding so everyone could get to know each other, bond and create some great memories for their wedding experience. This house was perfect for our group. We felt right at home and had a wonderful time. The owners provide all the basics needed for a comfortable stay, from toiletry starters, well appointed appliances, plenty of roll away beds and towels. The wifi was a little spotty and having a hot tub would have taken this to the next level, but the decor and cleanliness of home reassured us we had picked a great rental home. Definitely would recommend for a group of up to 16 singles who don't mind sharing bathrooms."

  • Lovliest home / Most wonderful owners on the Lake!

    "I have rented several homes on the lake and finally had the great fortune to discover Making Memories II. The home is everything it is pictured to be, and more. This is because the owners maintain very high standards for comfort, cleanliness and keep everything in great working order. I stayed for 6 months at a time for several years and the owners, in addition to being kind and friendly, were extremely responsive. They simply care so much about their lake home and their guests. Their own standards are high, and are passed along to their lucky renters. I would highly recommend this home to short or longer stays, any time of the year. The home itself is tasteful and charming with a massive master suite. These pictures don't quite do it justice. There are several outdoor spaces and a large dock for sunning, swimming and boating. The water is always deep and is just a stone's throw from the Gainesville Marina. The kitchen is better stocked than my own ;), the beds are so comfortable that its hard to crawl out in the morning, the jetted tub in the master is huge and the kitchen is like new. The location is close to shopping and dining, but far enough away that you feel secluded at the house. You will simply love this home and want to come back again and again!!"

  • Great time!

    "We had a group of 7 friends stay here for 4 days in July and had a wonderful time. The house was very spacious, and the kitchen was amazing. It was a very convenient location with Publix right up the street and all the amenities of Lake Lanier nearby. The owner was very friendly and easy to work with. A hot tub would have been a nice addition, but the house really is lovely. I would definitely recommend this place to friends."

Gainesville Travel Tips

Gainesville Vacation Rentals: Southern Comfort

Cradled in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains is Gainesville. This Georgia charmer is a small town with a big appeal. Its natural beauty commends it; and its southern atmosphere will delight. Enter a world of hot days and easy nights, all punctuated with smiles. It's a true family destination. But there's more than hospitality here. There is instead a collection of rugged adventures and wild experiences. Forests, lakes and stone all combine. The result is something magical. And, with Gainesville vacation rentals, you can have that magic for yourself.

Gainesville Cabin Rentals: Beauty Made Simple

You want a vacation but you also want one you can afford. With Lake Lanier lodging, that's no longer just a wish. All cabins are tailored for family needs (space, style and budgets). You can have rustic appeal without having to spare every penny. No longer huddle in hotel rooms. Instead sprawl within the wilderness, all while having the modern comforts you rely on. It's perfection. It's yours.

Lake Lanier Lodging: Discover Adventure

After relishing each morning in Gainesville cabin rentals, move then to the wonders beyond. Visit one of the 10 local marinas and find the appropriate boat, skis or other equipment to rent (as well as friendly staffers, all willing to provide lessons in safety and usage). Travel then to Bulford Dam Park and find swimming, hiking and picnicking areas. A small fee of one dollar will apply. Follow the Laurel Ridge Trail as it leads you through forestry. And then explore the Lake Lanier Resort and its 1,100 acres. There you'll be able to sample championship golf courses, horseback riding and even the Beach and Water Park. The kids will love it.

Gainesville Vacation Rentals: For All

It's time for more than trips that compromise, for days that never please. Instead let Lake Lanier lodging offer something the entire family can enjoy: pure entertainment.
