It was perfect!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter was graduating from UNG and we stayed in this amazing house for the graduation weekend. We had friends and family come for the graduation and this house had plenty of room for all of us. The house was clean, spacious and very comfortable. We enjoyed the fire pit and how peaceful it was outside. It is a beautiful home!!

Absolutely incredible

Alex and Dawn were so accommodating, especially with the unfortunate aftermath of the hurricane. With their help, my organization had an amazing retreat at their property! Thank you so much!

Plenty of room for friends to enjoy a Spartan race weekend. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice house in a quite setting. Everything we needed was provided. We enjoyed the location so much that we opted to order in dinner rather than go to a restaurant. 12 people stayed here for the weekend with plenty of room to spread out and relax. While the home theatre was a cool feature we never used it. The only thing I would say that's not 100% positive would be the obvious wear around the house. We had no issues with anything not working you could just tell the house is well used. Alex and Dawn were great and addressed all needs. All in all we would definitely stay here again. Next time we'll rent a boat.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Alex and Dawn,

Thank you for allowing us to rent your place again. This is the 4th time we have been and all of our employees love it! Renting a pontoon boat, jet ski, and having the outdoor fire place with all the chairs around it is priceless let alone the kitchen table which is big enough for the whole company. We look forward to being there next year same weekend. Thanks again.

You'll pay a little more, but I doubt if you'll be disappointed....

  • 5 of 5

Reflections on Lanier was a little more cost than we had done in past vacations, but we had 16 in our group this year and needed the bigger home (not to mention the kids have grown to adults!). In the case of this home, you get what you pay for!

The home was fantastic and fit us well (we could have had more join us if needed!). The kitchen and dining area were great gathering places for dinners and evening games. We all fit around the table with ease and for the first time didn't have to eat in shifts as with prior trips! The living areas were big enough so we could all fit comfortably and the bedrooms were spacious (ok, huge!). The separate theater in the basement made for great end of evening movie watching or for the one day of rain we had.

The outdoor area afforded nice cornhole tournaments on the drive throughout the evening and a fire pit off to the side for nightfall (wood was there for us to use, don't know if this is common or if the prior renters left their supply). The swim dock was a great area to gather all day and laze in the sun/lake (though deck boards on the dock will need to be addressed soon). It was large enough to have us all gather on it for the day.

Dawn and Alex were great to work with and were attentive to responding to emails.

Only real issue, the gas grill needs work as all of the knobs were stripped and wouldn't turn the burner adjusters (didn't work for us at all and was mentioned in the house book by the prior renter). Luckily there was an old/small charcoal grill available (which we prefer to gas anyway!).

Overall the week was a great experience, you can't be disappointed with this house, it should meet all your vacation needs and then some.
