About Mary

We live out of state on the east coast near our kids and plan on retiring soon and would like to spend the winter months in Georgia.

Mary purchased this house in 2010

Why Mary chose Gainesville

We visited our daughter in Georgia for years and loved the area. The whole family rented a lake house on Lake Lanier in 2010 and loved it. It made us want to buy a lake house for our family to enjoy. We plan on retiring soon and look forward to spending more time in Georgia but until then we want to share the home with other families to enjoy and create some wonderful memories as we have.

What makes this house unique

We love to stay at the lake house with our grandkids. They love coming to Georgia and they would spend the entire summer in Georgia if their parents would let them. They love to swim and fish from the dock and love tubing. We play cards and games every night.

Greensboro, GA

Great house! Great owners!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed lounging around in the great room on the main floor. Nice furniture. The young ones really enjoyed the great room on the basement area. They lived downstairs the whole time we were inside.

The hot tub was very nice also.

The dock was very nice and we enjoyed fishing from the top deck. We rented a pontoon boat for a couple of days and left it tied to the dock overnight which was nice. When we go to Lake Lanier - we like to spend as much time as possible on the water in a boat. The weather rained us out for a couple of days - so it was great to have a nice house to stay in those days.

Real close to town and some great new restaurants and shopping.

We stay in a lot of VRBO houses and this is one of the best.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our two grown children, their spouses and six grandkids spent a week in this fabulous home. The house was more than adequately stocked with everything we needed and more. Access to the boat dock was wonderful and we spent the first two days playing and fishing at the dock. One of our grandsons caught a four pound catfish from the

dock so the rest of us spent lots of time trying to match or beat his catch (which none of us were able to do.) The house is fantastic and we had more than enough room for all twelve of us. We did not utilize the full kitchen downstairs because we found the main floor kitchen was more than large enough for our use.

We all agreed that this was our best family vacation ever and we definitely want to do it again. The owners Mary and Dean are awesome and they responded immediately to all questions we had.

If you're looking for a a relaxing and enjoyable family vacation this is the place to go!

Three Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife, our two adult children and their families spent a week June 13-20. Six adults and 3 young ones, 5, 4 and 2. The house was great. Very large. The 3 couples had their own bedrooms and the 3 kids used the other 2. Four full baths. The house has two full kitchens one on the main level and one on the lower walk out level. Lots of room. There was a walkway down to the lake. The house has a double boat dock with a second level. It was so hot the week we were there we all spent many hours swimming. Also lots of fishing right from the dock. We took a few excursions including a day at the Atlanta Aquarium which was an easy drive. The area is beautiful, rolling hills and Lake Lanier goes on forever. We were very impressed. The owners were very easy to deal with via email. This is our fourth VRBO family vacation and we recommend this spot highly.

Perfect home for an incredible wedding weekend. Very clean, spacious and fully stocked with all you could want. We were able to accommodate our entire family creating wonderful memories. The pool table was a big hit and fun for the competitors in the family. The owners were very informative and helpful.

Beautiful lakefront home in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This home was even better than I expected. It was large and comfortable, very clean and well maintained. If I had just one complaint it would be the amount of spiders on the dock (I don't think the owners can do much about this) be prepared to knock down a lot of webs before you enjoy the dock. My children loved the basement entertainment room with the large screen tv and pool table. The adults enjoyed the hot tub and lake view. We spent four days in Gainesville and had no trouble finding grocery stores and things to do. If you have young children I would recommend you take them to INK. It is a children's play "museum" where they can spend hours grocery shopping or working in a salon or diner. My kids could have spent all day there. It was a beautiful area and we loved our time there.
