With an Easy Walk To The Dock, Great Fire Pit and Deck - a Must See!
This top to bottom remodel is a stunner. A cozy bungalow that truly feels like a lake cottage but with all the creature comforts of home.
Located on a great part of the lake - convenient to both the GA 400 and I 285 - in a quaint, quiet neighborhood - yet just minutes over the bridge to Gainesville for shopping and restaurants. And 1.5 miles by boat to the Gainesville Marina for Gas, Boat Rentals and of course, a grouper sandwich from Skogies Restaurant. We are also located right off of both Simpson and Robinson Park with Boat Ramps.
Our cove is quiet and peaceful, but just a quick turn to the main channel. Great for Fishing and Swimming. We also have a Tandem (two person) Kayak and Paddles for your use (along with life jackets). Unlike many houses at the Lake , our path to the dock is a nice level stroll! Just follow the lit path.
There are also some very nice ducks at the dock!
Lake life is about outdoor living even when you have to come off the boat - so we hope you enjoy our outdoor living areas.
DECK AND SCREENED IN PORCH
Our 800 sq foot deck includes a large Screened In Porch that features a dining table (seats 8), bar, conversation set and flat screen TV perfect for watching college football or Sunday games with both SEC and Red Zone channels. We are fully stocked with melamine dishware for outdoor dining. Enjoy the lake in style without the bugs!
Our sun deck includes a 5 burner gas grill for your use, plenty of lounging space and space off of the master bedroom with rocking chairs and tables to enjoy morning coffee as you watch the family of deer who frequent the woods around the house.
OTHER OUTDOOR AREAS
Fire Pit - Enjoy the fire pit as you sit in the Adirondack chairs. Roast marshmallows and make s'mores. Outdoor string lights add ambiance.
Trampoline - Enjoy the trampoline for loads of fun - but please supervise the young ones!
Swing - see the tree tops.
Once you come in the house ....
LIVING AND DINING
Brand new kitchen with all new appliances including a full size ice maker for all of your entertaining needs. Kitchen is stocked with Keurig, French Press, Blender, and the essentials you will need for cooking and entertaining. A beautiful Eat In dining counter allows for meals with the family.
The well appointed living room features comfortable seating, a 50" flat screen Smart TV - full cable package and allows you access to Netflix and Hulu accounts to watch your favorite movies and shows.
Captain's Quarters - A master retreat with a King Bed featuring a 12 inch Memory Foam mattress and Memory Foam pillows with Bamboo Cotton bed linens. The master features a 43" flat screen TV and a set of french doors to the deck.
Smooth Sailing Guest Room - A bedroom featuring a Queen Bed with a 12 inch Memory Foam mattress and Memory Foam pillows with a fluffy down alternative duvet and plenty of storage.
Anchors Away Guest Room - A bedroom featuring a set of Bunk Beds with comfortable twin mattresses as well as a reading nook and plenty of storage.
Birds Nest Loft - A loft overlooking the common area that features two twin beds and plenty of space for games and hanging out.
Main Bath - A roomy bathroom featuring a shower/bathtub combination and plenty of storage. The bathroom is stocked with plenty of plush towels for your use. A vanity mirror and hair dryer are two essentials you won't have to bring from home.
Master Bath - Off the master, a roomy bathroom featuring a large walk in shower and plenty of storage including a large closet. The bathroom is stocked with plenty of bamboo towels for your use.
GAME ROOM - JUST FINISHED (opened 2/15/18). We have converted the garage and made it a game room. Heating/Cooling with finished walls and soft flooring are a great space to watch the game on the flat screen or enjoy the PING PONG table, FOOS BALL table, a game of DARTS or many of the other games we have in the room.
Laundry - a washer and dryer and laundry area is provided in the Master Bedroom for your use.
Parking Area - pull around the back for private parking. We fit 3 vehicles comfortably - but we are on a secluded narrow street (we love it!). So large RVS/ boats or boat trailers or lots of cars unfortunately won't work.
Our bungalow is cozy, special and our neighborhood is quaint. This is the perfect getaway - but not a party pad. No large groups or parties. We sleep 8 if some of those are kiddos.
Our road is a dead end and windy/narrow and parking at our place is limited to 3 vehicles... unfortunately no boats/trailers. Cars can park in the private off street driveway.

About Jennifer McCrary
We live in Marietta - and use this as a weekend getaway for our family.
Why Jennifer McCrary chose Gainesville
We wanted a small cottage that felt different than our large suburban home - but also like a more modern design aesthetic. When we found this little gem - we had to have her. I have had a blast decorating and fulfilling all of our lakehouse dreams. I hope that you will enjoy and appreciate the care and love put into the place.
What makes this House unique
We have a lot of very friendly deer! As you come driving in the windy road - especially in the morning and evening - keep an eye out. We love how much in nature we feel.

No detail is left out in this adorable bungalow tucked away in a small cove...we rented for the weekend with another family for our sons fishing tournament. The game room was a lifesaver especially since one day was rainy and the living area inside is pretty small. The screened porch and deck were perfect for the adults to hang out, eat, and watch the Masters on tv. We enjoyed the fire pit and making s’mores that were provided in our welcome basket. It’s a short stroll to the lake and the dock. The decor is perfect and everything you could need is provided. Thanks!
Cute and Cozy
Beautiful property, just enough room without being huge. Beds were SO comfy and towels luxurious! Thanks for the nice "goodie packet" of stuff for s'mores, etc!
Couldn't be more perfect!
We chose the Lake House as a place to stay for a nearby family event. From the pictures, I knew it was special, and from the moment we stepped foot in the place we didn't want to leave! Every detail and in the accommodations and decor were thoughtfully planned out, making us truly feel at home. As we sipped our coffee together in the morning, I realized the Lake House gave us the perfect setting to catch up and share memories - moments we would have missed had we stayed at a hotel. I highly recommend it!
Our family, 4 generations, had a wonderful stay. I highly recommend it. It’s out of town but close enough to get supplies and enjoy entertainment
Wonderful Family Christmas
A perfect home for our family Christmas! We had our son in town from the military, my parents, brothers and my family... It was a perfect! We walked into a big beautiful kitchen that was stocked with everything a kitchen at home would have! We brought some bowls and pans of our own just in case but it was not needed here. They thought of everything you would need to cook anything! We were able to cook our meals with plenty of room for more than one "chef" in the kitchen, so great time together! The home was very clean (and I am very OCD especially with cleanliness so I dont say this if it was not very clean, I was very happy) and all beds were super comfy! (even the ones in the loft!) The decor throughout the house was so detailed and everywhere we turned we were commenting how cool it all looked!- It literally looks like one of the Home TV shows decorated this house! We very much enjoyed the fire pit and backyard! We even had a family of ducks hang out with us at the water almost everyday we were there!
The location was perfect as well. It was far enough to give quiet privacy but yet it was only a short 10 min drive into town to do our grocery shopping (Publix) and any other store you could possibly need.
The owner Jennifer was very pleasant to book and plan with. She was very prompt in responding to any of my many questions I had leading up to our stay.
I would highly recommend this house! We absolutely Loved it!
Thank you Jennifer! You really thought of EVERYTHING to allow your guests to feel at home!
An Absolute Treasure!
I have stayed in several Homeaway places and this has honestly been my greatest experience so far. To start, Jennifer was super accommodating. I was concerned about the cold since it was the end of November. Jennifer listened and when we arrived, there was a heater on the porch. My family and I could immediately see that Jennifer and her family have taken the time to make their house a home. The decor was absolutely beautiful. I stayed for Thanksgiving and was easily able to cook a Thanksgiving meal for my family. There was also plenty of room for my family of 7. It was kid family with a swing and trampoline. We also had a visit from some ducks at the dock. The home is secluded for privacy but about 10 minutes away from groceries and shopping. We tried Jennifer's recommendation for a pizza place a few minutes away and it was Yummy! My family has been making recommendations to others and have already started talking about wanting to come back. Again, one of the best stays that I have had while using Homeaway.
