About Dan Youngblood

'Forty something' married, professional couple in the Atlanta area. 2 young kids and a large extended family. We both grew up on lakes and rivers. Love the outdoors, nature, family, adventure, and watersports.

Dan Youngblood purchased this house in 2003

Why Dan Youngblood chose Lake Lanier

My wife and I both grew up on lakes and rivers, and we want to share that experience with our kids and extended family. We love Lake Lanier -- what a beautiful lake!! In particular, we really love the northwest part of the lake since it is farther away from the crowds and rough water. Also, it's closer to the foothills of the North Georgia mountains and all of the wonderful things that area has to offer.

For several years, we tried to find a nice, big rental house on Lake Lanier for gatherings with extended family. Unfortunately, we were always disappointed with what was available for rent. Often, the houses were old and rundown with few amenities, and the owners were not very accommodating or customer-service oriented.

So realizing that there must be other families out there like ours, we decided to build a house from the ground up specifically catering to the high-end market for larger groups. Our house is one of the largest rental houses available on the lake, and we're sure that you'll agree that our amenities and location can't be beat!!

This property is in a beautiful setting! So peaceful and tranquil with much to do.

  • 5 of 5

We had our family reunion with 16 people, 8 kids 10-1 years old, and 8 adults. We had a wonderful time in the lake home in the woods! The two tired deck entertained the kids all day long with canoe, paddle board and splash

Pad while adults watched on deck or from beautiful house back porch, or relaxed in the hammock! We rented a boat and had peaceful waters during the 4th of July week! Took a day trip to Atlanta only an hour away to the aquarium and baseball game. This home had something for everyone, is nicely furnished and supplied with everything we needed! We are making plans to book again next year!

Wonderful Place for our Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at this beautiful home on the lake. The place was recently painted and all looked fresh and clean. The view of the lake is fantastic yet in this cove the children were protected from lots of boat traffic.

The home was big enough for our nine grandchildren, our three children and their spouses, and my husband and I. Plenty of places to find peace and quiet when needed.

The canoe, lake dock, and the splash pad were big hits with everyone. Dan was very attentive to our needs when we had questions.

Only negative was that we could have used more towels for the number of people we had.

Thanks for sharing your home with us and helping us to make special memories. Awesome time. We do hope to come again.

Great week at Dan's cottage in Dawsonville

  • 4 of 5

Our camp was very successful in GA due to quality of water and accommodations. The cottage on the lake was very comfortable and suitable for up to 10 adults. The owner responded to our needs and requests during our stay. The hot tub was awesome!

Needs some overall spring cleaning

  • 4 of 5

A group of 8 ladies loved the location of the home. This is a group of book club ladies that have known one another for the last 5-6 years and have met monthly and decided to go away for a few days; we only stayed two nights, but will stay three nights next time.

The view was beautiful and we had a relaxing two days.

This would be a five-star stay with the following spring cleaning:

Baseboard and wood flooring needs cleaning, wash all area rugs, pressure wash exterior of home, replace coffee maker, clean gas grill (we cleaned it in order to grill hamburgers), propane tank needs replacing (one was there, but we couldn't get it replaced), a fresh coat of paint in all bathrooms and living areas would be great, have written instructions on use of all electronics, and have a working WIFI, was out all three days we were there. Have garbage cans on the property, not at the end of the block.

All in all being our first "girls getaway" we had a FABULOUS time and would love to return in 4-6 months again.

Dan was very responsive on all occasions via email or phone calls....that was great and reassuring.

We would like to rent again in the fall.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have you as a guest, and I look forward to having you back as a repeat guest. Thanks for the feedback; we always appreciate receiving suggestions to improve the overall experience for guests at the house. Since your stay, we have completed a full spring cleaning, repainted the entire interior of the home (in updated designer colors), pressure washed the exterior, replaced and updated small appliances as needed, and replaced area rugs as needed. Sorry that the internet was unavailable during your stay. There had recently been major storms at the house, and the cable company had not been able to fix the internet prior to your stay. Also, sorry that the garbage cans were at the end of the driveway when you arrived. You checked-in on our trash day, so they were at the end of the driveway due to timing. Thanks again for the feedback. We always strive to make continuous improvements, so your suggestions are very helpful!

Phenomenal cabin, host, & experience!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this cabin and its owner. My group of families (4 kids and six adults) found the layout absolutely perfect. The cabin is spacious, immaculately clean, perfectly laid out for the kids and adults to either be with each other or have some time 'apart" on different floors, and well appointed. The pool table and hot tub are a big hit, and it's a plus that we could watch the kids in the hot tub from the comfort of the couch right inside. The kitchen has everything and more you would need to prepare a meal for a large group (except don't forget salt/pepper!) and there are plenty of fresh clean towels for all the hot-tubbing and showering needed. Each room is spacious/comfy and has a tv, making it perfect to have some privacy and comfort when needed. We would love to come back to this cabin again and again! Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!
