About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This beautifully maintained 5,000 sq. foot lake front home on Lake Lanier is just 45 minutes north of Atlanta. The home is nestled in a private location with a short, easy walk to the private dock. The sunset views over the lake are stunning from the floor to ceiling windows off of the kitchen and living room or from the large screened in porch. You can choose to dine in the dining room inside that seats 8 or the dining set on the outdoor deck overlooking the water. The open floor plan is great for entertaining with a spacious and comfortable living room with a large flat screen TV mounted over the stack stone, wood burning fireplace. If you prefer to spend your evenings utilizing the outdoor areas, there is a stereo available with outdoor speakers. You will enjoy the gleaming hard wood floors throughout the living areas as well as the modern kitchen with granite including a large island for a comfortable breakfast.

The 5 large bedrooms are extremely private and separated from the open living area. The upstairs includes 2 bedrooms with a queen size bed in each. In addition, there is an over sized bedroom with 2 queen size beds. The upstairs bedrooms share 2 full baths and a half bath. Downstairs you will find a new game room added in 2014 with Foosball and Air Hockey. Plus another relaxing living room with a 42 inch flat screen TV. Also 2 more bedrooms which includes the master bedroom that has beautiful views of the lake and a private patio. The master bedroom has an on-suite bath with shower and garden tub. There is plenty of room in this home for 10-12 to sleep comfortably in beds. No pull out sofas or bunk beds here.... Enjoy this home with your family or friends with plenty of parking in the 2 driveways that can easily hold 6-10 vehicles.

You can spend your days and nights relaxing in this lake front setting and spending time enjoying the open water or if you choose to venture out there is plenty to do in the area. Lake Lanier Islands Resorts is a short drive by water or land and offers a water park, restaurants, golfing, Sunset Cove, and many other activities. Or, spend the day at the North GA Premium Outlets just 20 minutes north on GA 400.

About Chris Westbrook- Curtis Ramlow

I am a Georgia native that grew up spending my weekends on Lake Lanier. Owning a home on the lake now, I enjoys boating and relaxing on the water.

Chris Westbrook- Curtis Ramlow purchased this house in 2011

Why Chris Westbrook- Curtis Ramlow chose Cumming

The close proximity to Atlanta makes it great for leaving the city and getting up to the lake in under an hour, including a stop at the grocery store. The South lake location is also convenient to GA 400, Lake Lanier Islands, and convenient shopping.

What makes this house unique

The combination of the open floor plan and a short easy walk to the water makes it perfect for enjoying time with friends and family. During a week at the house, some days are filled with a day on the water while others are simply spent relaxing with a book or playing cards on the screened in porch.

Wonderful Location, Home & Owners

  • 5 of 5

"Tipsy Ridge" is a wonderful home located on Lake Lanier. It is in an accessible area close to all major highways. The layout of the home is fantastic with plenty of room and amenities for all. The owners were incredible and even shared some water toys they had. They were friendly and very helpful with anything we needed. I would recommend this rental to anyone who is big on location, customer service and cleanliness. It's amazing!

This home was beautiful I am very picky and hard to please and I can say with out any hesitation this home is amazing. The owners are wonderful and so easy to work with went out of their way to answer questions and help with anything we needed. It was like staying at a 5 star resort. So sad to leave love love loved ever part of our fantastic week. Many houses you see when searching for rentals are not truly accurate with this home it's even better in person! Thanks again for sharing your beautiful home.

Relaxing and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend in this beautiful home. It was perfect for myself and my three adult kids and their partners plus my young grandson. We loved the lake view and relaxing on the dock and in the water. The owner went out of his way to bring new lounge chairs for the upper level of the dock since I expressed some disappointment that they were not there when we arrived (broken by previous renter). They were great to work with and very helpful in the whole process.

We enjoyed listening to the sounds of nature as we had a late evening dinner on the deck. We rented a boat one day and it was easy to use the slip. We also found the living room big enough to allow us all to sit together and play games, especially on one rainy morning. We didn't stay long enough to use the game tables but they are nice to have.

Everything was awesome, from the owners to the home itself. Family from Mississippi and Virginia were celebrating a college graduation. The kitchen was large enough for 3 cooks. Close to grocery store. We loved the sound system! There was enough room for everyone. The fire pit and patio was the spot. You will not go wrong with choosing this home!
