About the Property

1750 square foot house overlooking Lake Lanier, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The Lake House is located at the end of the circle in a wonderful older lake neighborhood. There are 2 bedrooms, bath, living room, dining room, kitchen and laundry on the main floor and the master bedroom and master bath are upstairs. The master has a queen bed, sofa, chair and 42” flat screen TV. Bedroom 2 has a queen bed, 32” flat screen TV and chair. Bedroom 3 has a twin bed, a double bed and 37" inch flat screen. The living room has a 47" flat screen and a wood burning fireplace. The kitchen has a self-cleaning oven, dishwasher, microwave and plenty of dishes and pots and pans.

The large concrete patio provides an excellent place for lake viewing, dining or watching the kids in the fenced yard. The fire pit will keep everyone warm on the cool evenings (you provide the wood). The covered shelter between the house and the dock provides a great place for relaxing and reading.

A gentle slope leads you to the 32' x 32' covered boat dock with a 14' slip and 12' platform for swimming, fishing and relaxing. Bring your boat or rent one at a marina on the Lake. Bald Ridge Marina with boat rentals and public boat launch 5 minutes away. Mary Alice Park with public boat launch 10 minutes away. A canoe is available for guest use. Please bring your own life jackets.

This property is perfect for families. Remember, 6 overnight guests and no more than 10 people on the property at any given time. Please no wild and crazy parties. We love our neighbors and respect their homes, families and privacy.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We purchased this property in 2004. It was our home until 2008. We became Grandparents and needed a larger place to accommodate our extended family. We live about 15 miles away and miss our great friends and neighbors. We manage and care for the property.

Why the Owner Chose Bald Ridge Acres, Cumming, GA, USA:
We loved the location, just one mile from GA 400. The channel/cove is great, deep and away from the busy parts of the lake. Close to town but felt as though we were in the county.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great cozy house, quiet neighborhood, great part of the lake, 1 mile from GA 400, 2 miles from downtown Cumming, easy access to Atlanta and the North Georgia mountains. Because we are away from the larger parts of the lake, you can float the day or night away in the lake or rest peacefully on the dock. This property is great for families. Please no large family reunions, birthday parties or fraternity/sorority/prom parties.
