About Rick Amsden

We fell in Love with Lake Arrowhead back in 1999. We loved the lake so much we purchased a empty lot just so we could have access to this beautiful lake. Four years later were fortunate to purchase this wonderful vacation home with another partner.

Rick Amsden purchased this house in 2003

Why Rick Amsden chose Lake Arrowhead

Lake Arrowhead is just one hour North of Atlanta. We live in Marietta, GA and love having the vacation rental home so close. It's a great get away. It's amazing the feeling you get when you enter the property. We think it's the best kept secret in Atlanta. Because we are less than an hour away it's easy for us to keep the house in a great condition!

What makes this house unique

We love all that Lake Arrowhead has to offer: Golf, Tennis, Swimming, Pool, Volleyball, Basketball, Great Festival Park, the Walking Trails. We especially love just sitting on the Deck, Dock or Hot Tub watching the boats go by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Coming from Maui, we did not know what to expect, but you have exceeded our expectations. All the personal touches were more than we hoped for. The view of the lake, especially at sunrise was breathtaking. We’ll be back.” Greg and Sherry, Maui, HI

Very good swimming

For anyone who likes to swim, and have good access, this house will provide. Some of the details for comfort inside the house need updating and work. The owner is working on this as i understand it.

Lake House Lake Arrowhead

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three days in the lake house and it was a great! The house is a great location with a great view of the lake and tree color changes in November. The house has everything you need and the owner Rick was very helpful and provided us with all the information about the house and how to get there prior to our arrival. Beautiful area and home I would highly recommend renting this home for your vacation. We will be back again! Thanks!

the location and views are spectacular. The home needs some remodeling tho.

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful views. Location was great. The interior of the home does need some improvements. Most of the furniture is really outdated and old looking. There are only 2 TV's (one old Sony 30" and an old 60" downstairs) in the house, which are also very outdated. On the other hand Rick was very pleasant and easy to deal with.

Owner's Response: Hi Sal, Glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your comments, we agree the house does have some of the best views on the lake. You will be happy to hear we purchased a new Sony 40 inch flat screen TV for the living room. We also have plans to up date some of the furniture.

We had a wonderful and relaxing week!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this Lake Arrowhead house. The lake was beautiful - we enjoyed swimming in it every day. We also cooled off at each of the two swimming pools in the complex. We took the paddle boat out multiple times and one day we rented kayaks and a paddle board for the kids. The house was perfect for us; the kids stayed on the lower level with the big TV and the hot tub. They spent many hours playing with the foosball table! They had a great time. Rick was very helpful - anytime we had a question, he would respond to us immediately. We would recommend the property to our friends!

We loved our stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our vacation. We had a great time playing in the lake with its crystal clear water and enjoyed relaxing on the deck. It was a great family bonding time and we all felt rejuvenated at the end of the week. Thanks for letting us stay.

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and kids visited for 3 nights and had a perfect get away. Owner was very easy to work with and very accommodating when we wanted to stay an extra night. Lots of room on the deck overlooking lake where we grilled out at night and had breakfast in the mornings. Game room downstairs was great for the younger kids to hang out together. Dining room table was used for our nightly card games. Dock was big and we all enjoyed the paddle boat that came with the house. All of us swam and the boys fished. We had plenty of people to make the trek up the steps from the dock when needed. We will definitely be back.
