Spacious 4 bedroom and 4 1/2 bath lake house
Our 3500 sq ft house is fully remodeled with lake-inspired attention to detail and décor. A fully equipped granite kitchen with restaurant quality gas stove is ready for anything the cook may want to whip up. Large bathrooms with gorgeous showers and vanities throughout the house. After a day in the sun, the finished basement rec area is perfect for unwinding - complete with a Smart 60" curved HDTV with a full cable package as well as a vintage golf arcade game to test your old school roller ball swing skills. The house is located on a deep water cove and equipped with a fully powered two-story dock to give you and your family the perfect place to lay out and enjoy the sun and lake. If you want to spend time fishing, wake boarding or tubing, please ask us about the use of our fully-equipped 24' pontoon boat, or , if you prefer something slower, our two 10' paddle boards and 12' kayak. The house itself is nestled in a quiet, secluded Gainesville neighborhood that is a mere 90 mins from downtown Atlanta and only a short 5 minute drive away from several chain and local restaurants, two grocery stores, two shopping plazas and a movie theater. No matter what you choose to do on holiday, there is something for everyone at this modern lake house for you to enjoy. We look forward to welcoming you to experience our home.

We rented the house for new year's holiday 2017-2018 and had a great time! Because of the season we could not enjoy the lake, the boat and the dock; but surely looks in very good shape and promises a lot of fun for everyone during summer. If you are renting this house during winter time make sure you ask for additional heaters for the rooms upstairs as well for the basement. Managing the temperature to make it comfortable for everyone its definitively a challenge. In addition, ask the owner to make sure the propane tanks for the grill, heater and fire pit are full and ready to go.
We were surprised with the Christmas decoration which made us feel at home and we all appreciated very much!
Sweet Boat House!
We truly enjoyed our stay at this property, especially with all the beautiful Christmas decorations. The house is decorated in a nautical boat theme, and was just charming. We would have liked to spend time outside but unfortunately the gas heater on the patio, along with the grill and fire pit on the lower level, all had empty gas containers. it was about 25-30 degrees, so it kept us inside most of the time, what a shame. Also, be warned to read the fine print on the contract as we rented the boat for a day including a deposit for gas but it was so darn cold we couldn't take it out, and they refused to refund our money stating it was listed in the contract that no refunds do to bad weather. I mean really? It's not like we wanted the weather to be bad, it was impossible to be out in that weather... so be sure to READ THE CONTRACT.
We're sorry the weather turned cold during the guest's stay; however the "no refund due to inclement weather" is clearly stated (not in fine print) in the house rules that were sent twice prior to their stay and signed. As promised in our confirmation of their rental agreement, we ensured the pontoon was fully prepped for their use. Had the guests asked to use the pontoon on a different day, we would have accomodated that request. We can't as a rule assume responsibility for the weather especially when living on a lake in northern Georgia
Regarding the propane tanks, we were made aware that the main grill tank was empty on the first day of their stay. We had suggested swapping out one of the other two tanks and heard nothing back even after sending two additional follow-up emails during their stay to see if there were any other issues. Had we known that all three tanks were empty we would have asked them to go to the local service station to swap out the tanks and refunded them for the charge. Not knowing this information resulted in the next guest being without propane as well.
Overall, we enjoyed having these guests in our home and are pleased that aside from the issues stated above they had an enjoyable holiday experience in our home.
The home is great and the owners are fantastic We look forward to staying there again.
What an amazing home!
We are so excited that we found this wonderful home to borrow for vacations. They have furnished the home perfectly. It is stock with everything you could need for a perfect vacation! The boat is in fantastic shape! The kids loved using the tube and wake board. We all learned how to paddle board. Next time maybe we will get to try the kayaks. Fishing off the amazing well appointed dock was great.. we all caught (and released) fish. I can not say enough about how wonderful this experience was from the first initial email. The owners are extremely accommodating and quick to respond. Thank you for letting us borrow your home. We will definitely stay here again.
Thank you so much, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our home!
Located on a beautiful lake. House has all the comforts and room to spread out. Gainesville is a nice town with lots of choices. Interactions with property owner waa very positive.
Great House on Lake Lanier near Gainesville!
This is a great rental house on Lake Lanier with close proximity to shops and restaurants in Gainesville. The house is tucked away in a nice, quiet cove with a beautiful deep water dock that appeared to be relatively new. The owner does offer rental of a pontoon boat for an additional fee, but there is room to tie up your own boat on either side of the dock. The dock also offers paddle boards and kayaks that our kids loved. And, it felt safe having them in the water around the dock given the limited boat traffic in and out. The house itself was well appointed and clean. There are four bedrooms that sleep 8 people comfortably. The basement has a great big screen TV with all the entertainment options you would need and an older Golden Tee game that was still a lot of fun. There was a large kitchen for cooking meals and the deck had ample seating, a fire pit and a propane heater. The grill is a combination gas/charcoal/smoker that I have not seen before, but it worked well. We have rented a lot of houses on the lake and this was one of the better ones. We will definitely be back!
Jason: Thank for the very favorable review. We're glad you had great time at out house. We look forward to seeing you and your family again soon.
