About Pete

My wife and I enjoy the outdoors. We now have a little boy and look forward to introducing him to fishing.

Pete purchased this house in 2008

Why Pete chose Lake Arrowhead

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.

Private Lake Front House with Pontoon
average rating of 4.285714 based on 19 reviews


  • 5 of 5

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!

2016 Holiday Stay - Lake Arrowhead

  • 2 of 5

We gathered for a weeks stay during the 2016 holidays with our Georgia family. Liked the location of the house - near the lake - even though we did not fish or use the pontoon. The floor plan / layout worked well for our family.

The owner was responsive to our concerns with linens, tv's and initial cleaning - problems that were unexpected at check in and unacceptable. We have stayed in the Lake Arrowhead area previously and rented 4-6 other properties - this is the only house we have been disappointed with.

This home needs some TLC and upgrades - paint, carpet and decor. These issues need to be resolved before future rentals.

8 month business stay

  • 5 of 5

Home was comfy and pleasant! We stayed here with our dogs and family during an extended business stay and really enjoyed the lake and the Georgia mountains! The owner would promptly take care of any small things that would come up. Felt like home! Lots of towels and linens too! Renting the boat with it one month was a real plus as the lake is to die for!!!!!

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 2 month stay in Waleska. The view of the lake from the great room and from the spacious deck was appreciated. We always found things to do. We cooked out several times, went for pontoon rides, went to the beautiful golf course and had some good food at the welcoming Club House. We had some friends join us for a couple weeks and found the house clean and comfortable. There were some great restaurants and activities in surrounding towns. We went to several wine tastings in Ellijay, Cummins and in Dahlonega where we found some quaint shops and some great seafood at the "Back Porch". Also great seafood at "Goin Coastal" restaurant in Canton 15-20 min. away. Overall a very relaxing, fun and adventurous get away.
