About Pete

We wanted to provide an affordable property that allows everyone to enjoy all the benefits of a private lake and community.

Pete purchased this house in 2008

Why Pete chose Waleska

Living in Atlanta we wanted something close. The private lake offered clean water at a consistent level, less traffic and more security.

What makes this house unique

We are on the west side of the lake which is close to all the amenities. We have a private wooded view is secluded cove. This means no boats or neighbors across from you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very relaxing and large home on the water!, Rated 5/5

We loved our stay at your vacation home on the water! We wish we had more time to enjoy the amenities. Will have to recommend to friends and family and re-visit. Very clean and best price for the area. Beds were super comfortable! Kitchen had ample space for guests! Back deck and yard on the water was superb! Saw deer both days! Can't believe this peaceful retreat is so close to Atlanta.

The house was nice, comfortable , spacious and a good location. The location in the cove was quiet. The guys caught plenty of fish, including a large mouth bass which was probably about 5-6lbs.

The gated community provided an additional sense of security. Living in the city, it was amazing to see how "really" dark it gets. Beautiful Scenery, Lots of activities!

great cabin, but incomplete posted information re access to gated community and parking

  • 3 of 5

I rented this cabin for a groom and groomsmen for a weekend wedding. Access to the gated community of Lake Arrowhead as well as access to the cabin was required to use the cabin. Was not informed until cabin was paid for that only 3 vehicles were allowed in driveway for 10 expected guests. Was required to sign contract on the day of access when full payment for rental was made weeks in advance - this detail should have been done days if not weeks before. Nice property, but owner very sloppy on important details and access. Get ALL THE DETAILS before you rent this property and save yourself some headaches.

Great stay on beautiful lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the lake house! The house had everything we needed. We kayaked, fished, and enjoyed the view! Would love to come back, stay longer, and also get out on the lake with the pontoon boat.

Cleanliness expectations not met

  • 3 of 5

As I shared with the owner after our stay, When we arrived, there were dirty dishes in cabinets (milk crust in cups, dried cheese in cheese grater, crumbs in bowls in cabinets) and surfaces were grimy and not cleaned. As far the bedrooms, there were chips under the sheets in the master bedroom, a toe nail on floor in the other main floor bedroom, and dirt in each of the showers. I know this cabin is cheaper than a lot of the homes in the area and the no frills and basic amenities is not an issue. What we do expect, is that we arrive to a sufficiently cleaned house. We spent the first day cleaning dishes, surfaces, and sheets ourselves so that we were comfortable enough cooking, eating, and sleeping. everyone expect cleanliness. Half of the guests (4 people) departed early because they were just too uncomfortable with finding evidence of lack of cleaning and just could t relax on their vacation.

Aside from the cleaning, we did have to spend time looking for toilet paper for all but one bathroom (we found 4 roles in a closet in the basement), find garbage bags (None of the trash cans had bags in them) and had to re wash towels since they were left in the laundry in a pile still damp and musty smelling. The cabin itself was what we expected in terms of amenities, furniture, location, etc. which was more than adequate for what we were looking for but we were disappointed in how much we had to do before our vacation weekend for some R&R.

Owner's Response: This is an accurate review at that time. House was in good condition in mid April as we were up there several times fishing. Our early May renters left the house in very poor condition and for some reason the cleaning company did not report any of this. We visited the house several times in late May to bring the property back inline. We have also hired a new cleaning company and a property inspector to make sure this does not happen again.
