About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bathroom Lakefront Home Nestled Amongst the Trees

Three story lakefront home surrounded by woodlands with a private dock on a serene cove. Located in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to GA 400 and area shopping - from outlets to antiques. Situated on the southernmost part of Lake Lanier, this home is a stones throw from everything you could want or need while providing the serenity and solitude you look for in a lakefront retreat. Sleeps 8 comfortably with private suites and bathrooms for all. Main level bedroom has a king-sized bed and en suite bathroom. Upstairs bedrooms have a king in one with twin beds in the other. Both have private 1/2 baths connected by a shared shower. On the terrace level, there is a private bedroom with king bed and an adjacent bathroom.

The home has an expansive upper deck high up in the treetops and screened lower deck for bug-free hammock swinging, outdoor dining and socializing. Large firepit between the house and lake is the perfect spot for cooler nights. Quiet cove provides the perfect setting for exploring the lake on stand up paddle boards and kayaks. Our swim platform can be anchored in the deep water cove for a great tanning spot or jump off platform for the kiddos. Access to big water is just a 5 minute boat ride away. Our Bentley 240 Cruiser pontoon is available for rent at discounted rates to our guests.

About Elexa Wagaman

Hello! We are Mike and Elexa Wagaman and we've owned this home for just over 5 years! We've both lived in the area for over 20 years (Elexa grew up here, but Mike still claims San Diego as home!) and currently reside in Marietta, Georgia with our two young children and German Shepherd, Titus.

Elexa Wagaman purchased this house in 2012

Why Elexa Wagaman chose Cumming

We purchased the property years ago - knowing that we would one day have children that we would want to experience lakeside living with. Having both grown up around the water (beach for Mike and lake for Elexa), we knew we wanted to recreate some of our waterfront childhood experiences with our own kids. In the meantime, we are glad to share our home with you as you make memories with your own friends and family!

What makes this house unique

We frequently refer to our lakehome as a treehouse because of the way each level of the home (and there are three!) seems to be nestled perfectly into the surrounding canopy of mature trees. That combined with the utter solitude that we experience each time we walk down to the waters edge makes this property a beacon of respite in our hectic lives. We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do!

The place was even better in person. Elexa has thought of everything you need. The only problem was we had to leave lol! Can’t wait to go back:)

Perfect Family Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations by far. We had a great time and created many family memories with our kids we'll never forget. We all got to enjoy the amazing lake, the dock, kayaks and paddle board. The wooded setting of the property and those huge trees are breath taking, it actually makes you feel you're on a tree house. We got to enjoy every minute we spent there, even the rain. This house is well equipped with everything you need and just few minutes drive from Costco and Publix

Thanks Elexa and Mike for sharing your amazing home with us and hopefully we'll come back for a longer period next time.

Great Lake House for a Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

I just came back from a girls trip with my college friends, just us 8 ladies, no men or kids. We had a LOVELY time. The house is well stocked. We brought our own boat to cruise the lake, but the majority of the time, we were hanging by the dock swimming and catching up. The owners have two kayaks and a paddle board for use., as well as lake towels. We all took turns on the paddle board, even our 8 months pregnant friend! The house is well stocked with cooking supplies. We had figured that we would go out to eat each night, but there is a grocery store about a mile away and we just ended up cooking dinner every night. Once we all arrived, we never left. One of the reasons we booked this house was for the table. Most houses only have room for 6. This table is huge and we were all able to eat together. There are lots of outdoor spaces as well, the downstairs deck is screened in and the upstairs deck opens up to the kitchen and den. We ate breakfast out there each morning. The downstairs living area is very comfortable, and there was enough space to have everyone get comfortable and chill out. Each bedroom had flat screens with cable and they each had access to internet apps like Netflix/Pandora. We often had Pandora running in the background.

If we ever do another girls trip to the Atlanta area, we will for sure rent from Elexa again. She was so nice and accommodating.

I will say this, if you are an older person, or someone who is not steady on their feet, and you want access to the lake, then maybe this house isn't for you. It is a little hike to get down to the lake, not bad for us, but I can see how an older person who has bad knees might have issue with it. We didn't have any problems, except for being slightly out of breath on the way back up! We figured it was good exercise ;)

Below is a list of a few things we all thought added a nice touch to the house.

-comfortable beds

-dining room table big enough for everyone

-quality blankets/throws

-book of instructions/helpful hints

-amount of comfortable/couch seating

-gate on deck (for if the kids had come)

-providing lake towels

-use of kayaks/paddle boards

-kitchen was well-supplied

-board game variety (and puzzles)

-parking, we were able to fit a boat and 4 cars in the upper parking area

We will be back again in the future! Thanks again Elexa!

Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful and relaxing vacation. We were able to enjoy meals and family games around the spacious dining table. The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed for preparing our meals. The dock is on a very quiet cove which was perfect for paddle boarding, kayaking or just relaxing on floats. We will definitively be back.

Very nice home on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Home is very nice. There was plenty of room for everyone. We made a big meal for 8 people in the kitchen and used the large dinning room table. The dock is great for morning coffee and afternoon swimming and paddle boarding. Watch movies in the evening in the finished basement with a excellent cable provider. One of the most relaxing vacation We have had.
