8,500 square foot home on 45 acres, overlooking a beautiful private lake, ringed by the North Georgia mountains.

Located 1 hour north of Atlanta. This beautiful home sits in the middle of thousands acres of timber land and National Forests... you will have no neighbors. The 150 ft wrap around deck affords a view that must be seen to be appreciated.

The perfect setting for large groups of friends, family gatherings, wedding parties or corporate getaways. The house is conveniently divided in order to allow privacy amongst our guests.

It sleeps 17 people in regular beds and a baby 's crib, plus 3 queen sleeper sofas and 5 standard sofa's for additional sleeping. There are two stairways leading to separate upstairs areas. The master suite is on the main floor along with an additional bedroom,the living room and beautiful dinning room. The game room with pool table, dart board, ping pong table , card and gaming tables, along with the home theater room are on the lower level and exit's onto the pool deck. On the main level five separate exits lead to the wrap around deck which overlooks the pool to the side of the house and the lake and mountains to the rear. From this deck take either of the two stairways to the pool deck or continue down the 127 steps leading to the lake and the floating dock where you will find a john boat as well as a peddle boat. If you like to fish you've come to the right place, bass, trout and bream swim in abundance in the 14 acre lake. If you don't feel like heading down to the lake stay up top and enjoy the seven person hot tub, a 20' x 40' swimming pool with stone deck. Picnic tables, stools, lounge chairs and outdoor sound system make relaxing easy. A huge kitchen, surrounded by windows with a large dining table and a large stone fireplace serves as a great gathering place. All this makes it possible to spend time enjoying friends and family while still being able to find your own private space to read, relax, boat, swim,or watch movies and sports on TV.

There is a 'mother-in-law' suite on the lower level which can sleep 6-8 and has a living area, kitchenette and full bath.

If you want to do a little exploring by car there is plenty to see in the area. Ellijay, the apple capital of Georgia, is 25 minutes away. The entrance to Amicalola Falls State Park is less than a 10 minute drive. Hiking trails and horseback riding opportunities abound. Tubing and white water rating is available and only minutes away. The historic town of Dahlonega is 15 mile drive and there you will find many interesting shops and restaurants. The Chestatee Wildlife Preserve, home to tigers, bears, camels, monkeys and more, is located on Old Dahlonega Highway (SR 115) in Dahlonega. The Premium Outlet Malls are 20 minutes away in Dawsonville.

But if you want to just spend time away from it all this is the place, sit on the deck overlooking the lake and watch the sun set behind the mountains, boat or fish, walk wooded trails or sit by the pool and cook on the grill. Minimum stay may be required (-:

Waverly, NY

Beautiful, spacious, comfortable home. Everything provided to accommodate multiple families.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay...a little taken aback by location. Needs to be identified better from the main road and should be told about hunting trailers along the driveway that leads to the house. The home itself is absolutely beautiful. Very spacious and accommodating for multiple families. (We had 7 couples.) A few minor flaws, but what house doesn't have them. Nothing the property managers wouldn't have taken care of if necessary. The house is quite a distance from everywhere, so be prepared to travel at least 15-20 minutes to the nearest town for supplies. (Dahlonega, GA, is a quaint little town, so be sure to visit often!) But it was less than a mile from the wedding venue where our daughter got married, so it was perfect for us. The weather in October was just beautiful. The temperature was in the 70s and 80s. Coming from upstate New York, it was a pleasant surprise.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was running from Hurricane Irma who ran behind us. We were without power for a day. However, as soon as it was safe, the property managers were there with generators and made our stay as wonderful as possible. We plan on coming back next year for a fun vacation and look around the area. I can't say enough nice things about the location or the ones who take care of it. I highly recommend it to anyone who needs a large place and some peace and quiet.

Great place to get away

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to have fun and get away from the crowds, this is it. The place is located back a long one-way driveway overlooking a lake and surrounded by mountains. The pool and fishing in the lake were big hits with our family of 24. The view from the deck is something that will be remembered by all. The house accommodated us well and was beautiful. There were a few maintenance issues that were very minor but did not distract us from really enjoying the place.

The view from the back porch overlooking the lake was beautiful. I would go again.

  • 4 of 5

We had a church youth group of 32. There's plenty of room to spread out. We put our young ladies upstairs in the room over the garage so our boy's couldn't (accidentally) wonder in their room. We also had extra rooms for our chaperones. Plenty of kitchen space and living space. We had a great time.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello Edwin,

Just wanted to say Thank-You! We had a great time at the Jackson Lake

house. We appreciate your help answering all of our questions about the

house and Dahlonega. I hope everything was ok with the house. One of the

pool lights needs replaced. Have a great weekend.
