About the property

Too peaceful NOT to share!

Nestled on 2 acres with a beautiful 100 acre private lake and walking distance to Sawnee Mountain Preserve rests AR Retreat. Enjoy a variety of sports - fishing, kayaking, basketball as well as a quick 5 minute walk to Sawnee Mountain Preserve where you can hike the mountain, challenge yourself with ropes course. There are over 21 trails within a 5-10 mile radius that will keep you, your family, and friends occuppied for days in nature. A short drive north and you hit the North GA Mountains, fantastic waterfalls, rocks slides, shops and more! A short drive south and you have access to all things Atlanta, both metro and urban! There is a list of amazing experiences awaiting you within miles and even more beyond that. Just visit:

However you don't have to leave the estate either as getting away from it all can be just that at theRETREAT! This home features master on main with finished basement with custom built bar, pool table, TV and plenty of space for intimate dinner and or family gathering. The main living space can be converted into a corporate meeting room or an intimate night for 2 around the fireplace. The views of our privately owned 100-acre lake can be seen from every room on the main floor with wide spanning windows that will allow you to be in the calm of the nature that surrounds the home. We have geese, ducks visit each morning and eve and throughout the day you will see our resident snowy white egrets and gray heron. Take the kayaks out exploring Twin Lakes or load them up and take them to nearby Lake Lanier or just 20 minutes north to drop in and enjoy a trip down the Chattahoochee! Enjoy fishing, kayaking or just relaxing near the water.

If you are lucky, it will rain during your visit and the main deck is our favorite spot to enjoy then! Watch a Netflix marathon, the game, and listen to the rain fall, protected and still a part of nature. You can even hang out in the hot tub and enjoy coffee in the morning to wine at night and never choose to leave the property!

Evenings bring wood fires in our firepits, smores or just relaxing with a good glass of wine and enjoying the beautiful and brilliant night sky where stars are endless! It is truly a get away spot for which you will want to pack your walking shoes and bathing suits!

Spent a wonderful long weekend celebrating my father's Birthday.

  • 5 of 5

House was even nicer than the pictures. Went kayaking, enjoyed a cup of coffee on the back patio while watching the geese swim by. Kids loved the pool table in the evening. We would definitely recommend and return if in the area.

Wonderful time - great visits and beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time - the beds were all comfortable - the kitchen was well equipped - you do need some measuring spoons.The view was beautiful and of course, we were with wonderful friends. They were so thoughtful they left out a girl's night out game that we played and laughed and laughed

I can't say enough about this lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends rented this wonderful home and loved it. It is beautifully decorated, had all the comforts of home and dog friendly. There was more than enough room for 7 adults and 1 child. We enjoyed fishing, playing ping pong and relaxing while looking over the peaceful lake. There are 2 fire pits where we made smores each night. There is also a pool table, basketball hoop, kayaks and hiking trails down the street for those who prefer to be active. This retreat home is the perfect place for a quiet getaway, reunion or intimate wedding. And has plenty of parking. We will definitely rent this property again.

Beautiful, peaceful lake home

  • 5 of 5

This home was a true retreat! The house is massive. The property is well-maintained, quiet, beautiful, and minutes away from hiking trails. The hosts are super friendly, helpful, and flexible. Our dogs had the best time running around the property and swimming in the lake. The fully stocked kitchen had everything we needed to enjoy meals at home. I’m so glad I chose this home for my family and I, while visiting Cumming.

Perfect place for wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything we needed for our large group in town for a wedding at nearby farm. Bed rooms were large and beds comfy. Setting is private and peaceful. The owners were very accommodating to any all needs. If your family is looking for a welcoming and clean place to stay in Cumming GA - this is it!!
