About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Note: At this time, at this time, we are not taking bookings past 2/1/17

Our lake cottage is a cute, cozy get away. There are two bedrooms with king sized beds and one bedroom with twin bunk beds (this bedroom only has a curtain for a door.) The kitchen is fully stocked and ready to use, but there are also restaurants near by if you don't feel like cooking. Several day spas are close enough to make it feel like a real vacation!

Down the hill from the house is the single slip dock at the wide end of a cove. (Note: the hill is steep - please look at the video tour on the website under 'links' below to make sure this property works for you!) A boat launch at Little River Park around the corner from the house makes bringing your own boat or jet ski easy to do! We have rafts for your use, but bring your own fishing poles...

The street our house is on is across Hwy 11/129 from Laurel Park. If you are involved in an event there it would be an easy 'commute' home every night. Even if you aren't it is a great park with a 'squirt park' and play grounds for little ones and a 'bark park' if you bring your four legged friends.

We are also only 3 miles from the kayaking venue created for the 1996 Olympics held in Atlanta!

Our off season rate is $125/night. There is a $50 cleaning fee and $50 pet fee if applicable. VRBO also charges their fee that is roughly 10%.

If your quote is not matching this please send me a message - sometimes the system has glitches.

About Kelly Ramey

Our family has 3 kids ranging from 10 yrs to 18 yrs old. We love coming out for weekends and playing games and swimming, boating and fishing with our family! We do have cable and internet, but our choice is to not bring electronics to the lake and enjoy checkers, chess, spades and Monopoly when we are not playing on the water. We have some games and puzzles there for your use, but bring your families' favorites too. Playing games on the deck while watching the fire flies come out and waiting for the home made ice cream to be ready is one of my favorite parts of the lake experience!

Kelly Ramey purchased this house in 2008

Why Kelly Ramey chose Gainesville

We looked for a lake property for years and finally picked this one because we could relax here and feel like we were 'away', but still be close enough to anything we needed and lots of entertainment. Also, though you still have a hill down to the lake, by 'Lake Lanier standards' it is one of the easiest walks to the water that we found.

House met the needs of a 3 guy wakesurf trip to Lake Lanier perfectly.

  • 5 of 5

Great cabiny/lake getaway feel. Can't beat the proximity to Laurel Park. We only stayed a weekend and spent most of our time on the lake, but the house was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen had more than everything we needed. Also a nice deck with a gas grill. If we go back next year we will definitely try to book again.

Just Right!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfection for our family of five and two pups. Kelly was very responsive and I am so thankful we were able to use this charming home for a last minute getaway! Everything we needed was at hand. Also: softest sheets I have ever slept on!

Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, clean and well stocked with the little things you might need such as toiletries, kitchen items like foil and little things you didn't have to run right out to grab until you could get acclimated. We even left some clothing in the dresser and the owner was kind enough to notify us and arrange to return it. Very nice owner, easy to reach and communicate with!

Quiet dog-friendly retreat

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay and would be repeat renters. Area is quiet, located on a dead-end street (good for morning dog walks). An older couple with an elderly dog and were in search of a dog-friendly, mid-way point to explore Helen (about 30 minutes away), multiple waterfalls & state parks (40 minutes to an hour away), and also the Atlanta attractions (zoo and aquarium about 1 hour away). Although we did not have time to enjoy the dock or the lake (maybe next time), this place really fit the bill for us. Cozy and comfortable, basically right across the road from Laurel Park (which includes a dog park where you and your four-legged friend or children can meet and mingle with locals), close to a really nice Kroger, a few restaurants, and the new woodland Botanical Gardens. Wal-Mart, mall, and multiple major chain restaurants are just a short distance away. House is as advertised, clean, everything worked, good water pressure, kitchen was well equipped and appreciated the little extras, i.e. aluminum foil, storage bags, cleaning products, etc. Owner was friendly, accommodating, and quick to respond to any questions. Only negative would be some of the outdoor areas. The driveway (although there is street level parking available), some of the yard, and the short pathway to the lake are all on an incline. For that reason, would not recommend this rental to anyone with impaired walking ability, but if you have good legs and a dog, this is a good centrally located rental. Deposit was promptly refunded.

Great Lake Lanier Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and exactly as it was described. It was in a very quiet neighborhood close to town, has a nice dock, and the owner is very friendly and responsive with any questions.

Highly enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. Kelly was very helpful through the booking process. The house was clean and stocked with everything we needed. More importantly, my kids said they felt at home and were sad when we had to leave.
