About the property

Enjoy lake life with private dock, canoe, fishing, golf, tennis, clubhouse, more

Our home is the perfect retreat and has some of the best views on Lake Arrowhead. Not only do you have a great view on two decks you also have your own dock and deep water to dive into and enjoy. We have been renting this lake house for over 10 years now and we know what renters want. The house has a total of four bedrooms with three new king size beds. One of the four bedrooms has a bunk bed for the kids. The house comes with two small living rooms, one up and one down, with their own flat screen TV with DirecTV in each. The fully stocked kitchen is open to the top living room and is perfect for family gatherings around the granite countertop. We provide almost everything you need from bath soap to laundry soap. This lake house will accommodate eight people comfortably, but can sleep ten.

We also rent our Manitou 22 foot 115 HP pontoon boat for a super low rate of $850 per week or $450 for the weekend. Most pontoon boats of this type rent for $850 a day on lakes here in Georgia. We have an assortment of life jackets and keep a couple pull behind rafts to tow behind the boat. We only rent to guests staying at the house.

Amenities: The lake house has 4 bedrooms (3 king size beds, 1 bunk bed, 3 bathrooms, 2 sitting areas, 2 decks, private dock (on the water of course), gas grill, 6 person hot tub, complete kitchen (with pots & pans, dishes, utensils, coffee maker, etc.), linens and towels, laundry facilities. Free local and long distance calling inside the USA. Broadband internet provided free.

Lake Arrowhead is a private community with a 540 acre spring feed lake. This is Georgia's largest private lake. The lake rarely fluctuates and is one of the cleanest lakes in Georgia. The community offers a wide range of activities including 18 hole Golf course, public swimming pool with life guards, six lighted tennis courts, fishing, clean and clear lake perfect for swimming. All amenities are available to our guests within Lake Arrowhead.

All restaurants are located 20 minutes away in Canton. Being only 1 hour north of Atlanta, you are a short distance away from White Water (30 minutes), Six Flags (45 minutes), Zoo Atlanta (45 minutes), GA Aquarium (45 minutes), Stone Mountain (60 minutes), and major sports arenas.

Lake Arrowhead Golf Club: Often rated as one of the nicest courses in North Georgia, the Lake Arrowhead course is surrounded by Mountain that add to the experience of playing such a beautiful course. With the 540 acre private lake as a back drop all your cares will melt away as you play our challenging course.

About Bob Pendley

We are a family of four and love the lake life! We own this house to help keep our family involved in the same extracurricular activities....boating, swimming, fishing, and just sitting on the deck and watching the sun and moon come up over the mountains.

We are very blessed to own this house and love to share the joy with others.

Bob Pendley purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Bob Pendley chose Waleska

This lake house is close to Marietta (which is where we live) Lakepoint Sports (our son is a wakeboard instructor), and Atlanta. The water level rarely fluctuates, even in a drought, and the water is crystal clean.

Lake Arrowhead is a private lake to which you must have access to fish. That is why the lake is so full of large fish.

What makes this cabin unique

We just love the view from the deck and the deep super clean water in the lake. When looking for lake property we learned you have two choices for lake property. Deep water but the house will be up off the water OR house on the water but a shallow lake. We chose deep water and high view.

We also love the fact the house sits on the no wake area of the lake. You may not care when looking for a lake if your in the no wake area until you try and swim off the dock or better yet when your kids are swimming. With no wake the boats slowly drive by and you don't worry as much about the kids swimming off the dock.

Lake Arrowhead is a spillover lake and it is also spring feed. The water level has only dropped about a foot in the years we have owned the house. I think the water is about 10 feet deep off the end of the dock.

I will drink a glass of water from the lake. Would you do that from any other lake in Georgia. No septic tanks. No water runoff from farms. No streams feeding the lake that come from developments. This place is heaven on earth.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This lake house has everything you need to have a great time. Let's start with beautiful lake views from both decks. There is plenty of space inside and out for the family to spread out. We had 3 families together during our stay. We enjoyed the pontoon boat (extra charge but worth it) everyday. We used it for fishing as well as tubing(my kids favorite lake activity). The house also has (no extra charge) a peddle boat, 2 canoes, kayak and an inflatable relaxation station which we used to lounge right off the boat dock.

Float on the lake. There are 2 pools to use within the community. We went to both. They are both very large. You will not be disappointed with this lake house. Only word of warning. If you have older guests or anyone that has trouble with stairs beware...there are about 63 steps from top to bottom.

Another excellent Fall getaway

  • 5 of 5

Went back for a second visit to SailAway for Columbus Day weekend in October. We found it to be just as peaceful as last year. It is a perfect getaway less than an hour from Atlanta. You feel like you are hours into the mountains. The serenity and beauty of the lake is like no other. Bob is a wonderful host. The communication along with the ammenities in the house were perfect for our family and friends. Comfortable!

Great location

"Very cool" is what the guys said. Loved everything about it. Great communication with the host as well. Good location. Would be fun to stay on an actual vacation not just a home to stay in while working in the area.

Awesome location and house

  • 5 of 5

First time to stay at this property and wont be the last. We had all five of our boys with us and the oldest with his wife. Plenty of sleeping quarters for all and gave each a separate space to get away if they wanted. Its right on the water and we rented to pontoon boat so it was amazing. Just walk down the stairs into the boat a take off. Absolutely loved touring around the lake and exploring. Did a lot of fishing, swimming, and skiing. The hot tub got lots of use and is on the second deck. All of the beds were comfortable. Loved waking up to the sunrise across the water. Cant wait to return.

We have stayed at a couple homes off of HomeAway and this one was our favorite

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this home and the boat over Thanksgiving break. When we first pulled into the neighborhood we all had the same imperfection “wow this is beautiful” when we got to the house we fell right in love!! The view is amazing!! We enjoyed the sunsets fishing hiking and exploring! Cooking in the kitchen is like cooking at home they have everything you need. You get a good night sleep cause the beds are comfortable. At night we had a nice fire and played family games. Thank you For letting us rent your home and we look forward to coming back

Beautiful lake front view with lots of included boats ‘n floats!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Sail Away! We had a lovely girls’ weekend (“girls” ranging from 3 year-olds all the way up to our 60-year old friend) and, even with two small children, we never felt cramped or in each others’ way.

The owners are more than generous with their “water toys” - we went paddle boarding, lazed around the lake in a wonderful float, went canoeing, and had a great time on the paddle boat with the kids. All of those boats and any sized life jacket you might need are included! We chose not to rent the pontoon boat for an additional fee, but might next time - it looks like a gorgeous boat!

We will definitely come back to Sail Away again as soon as we can all manage to get away! We’re talking about - at the very least - making it an annual trip.

The owners were incredibly responsive and kind, and I could not have asked for more from them. They definitely put our safety and enjoyment above all else!
