About Ken Gregory or Patty Gregory
Owners Patty and Ken Gregory live in Atlanta and are available to meet any needs that may come up. This was Ken's parents' house, built on 1970. Upstairs floor is our vacation home. We are there once or twice a month.
Ken Gregory or Patty Gregory purchased this House in 1970
Why Ken Gregory or Patty Gregory chose Gainesville
This north end of Lake Lanier has much less boat traffic than the south end of the lake. During the week it is very quiet and peaceful with a bit more activity on weekends. Wonderful place to retreat to for a serene getaway. Long walking trail next to property to rocky beach at Cameron Point.
What makes this House unique
This South facing lot lets you enjoy both the sunrise and sunset over this beautifully quiet section of the Lake.

Beautiful lake view
My dad stayed at this rental for a few days during the Christmas holidays. I chose this rental due to it's proximity to my home and the lake front. The communication from beginning to end was great. The house was very well appointed and had everything he needed...even fishing poles and bait left by the property manager! The lake view from the house is beautiful, especially from the sun porch.
Thank you, Heidi! We're glad you enjoyed it, and very happy to have your Dad stay with us.

It was okay
The view was great but the house was covered in spiders and bugs like no one has stayed there or even been there in months. We had some rat problems and scorpions in the sun room. The kitchen wasn’t that nice for what we paid for I was hoping for a lot more. Not being able to use the dock was upsetting too. We couldn’t go swimming or have a way to get out of the water. We had to drive 44 mins the lake Lanier island park just to get in the water. We didn’t spend more money on the house just so we had to spend money on getting in to the park to actually swim.
We just had 2 guests just before you that stayed for 2 months with no problem. They left at the beginning of June, a week before your arrival, and had no trouble whatsoever. I can't imagine why you couldn't manage to use the dock. There's a safe ramp with a handrail so it should have been no problem. Also the lake is easily accessible from the lawn. And it appears this guest did use the dock as the swim ladder was left down. We swim there with our kids continuously and use the dock and boat all the time. The place was just cleaned before your arrival but it had been a few days since. We've never had any rodent problems but will look into it. Lake houses near the woods will always have some insects coming in, but we have an exterminator so they're are dead soon after entering. The cleaners reported that this guest left the place totally trashed, beer cans all over the lawn and around the front of the house, and bleach poured onto pillow cases, ruining 2 of them. I would recommend to other owners that they never rent to these people.
Worst experience of me and my family's life.
First off the property that we were told about was a three bedroom one bath. we get there it's a two bedroom. We were scared the whole time. because it was a duplex that connected into the lower section, and up section the other section was unlocked. We open the door off, and it look like it was ransack. The internet did not work. And the property manager David Bell was no help at the end he accused us of breaking up to the second section. And He charged our card extra and are cleaning insurance that we purchase aswell. He also laid out threats that he was going to file charges on us even though I told him. I sent him information through emails and, I can bring all that up in the court he still went on and charged our card anyway. Only nice thing about this rent was the lake. Be were if you plan on renting this place.
This guest is totally misrepresenting the truth. Nowhere does it say 3 bedrooms - the property description plainly says "2 Bedrooms Plus Sleeping Sunroom" - exactly what it is. Being "scared" is a state of psychosis for which we are not responsible - the house, the neighborhood and surrounding area are completely safe and we've never had one problem in the 48 years we've had the house. The upper floor, which these tenants used without permission is our personal space, is not included in the rental space, and is far from "ransack" as described in this illiterate, irresponsible "review". The internet connection worked perfectly after the first day. Tenant sent no communication of any kind during their stay. Tenant's card was not charged as they claim - the insurance paid for their destructive fireworks cleanup and for the invasion of our private space upstairs, for which we had to do extensive cleanup. No one "threatened" tenant, and this paranoid delusional nut-case will never be allowed in our home again.
The owner was there upon our arrival to give a quick tour, which was not expected, but made it more of an "at home" feeling.
Thanks, Lesia! Very nice meeting all of you.
Owner was prompt in responses. He put the canoe on shore and had internet turned on prior to arrival. The lake view was nice from several points. However, the place had a musty smell, the tv was old and only basic cable of 8 channels which went out when the wind blew or during rain, which was basically our entire stay, thank goodness for Redbox! The kitchen had a microwave that worked but didn't turn, the coffeemaker was too dirty to use as well as the toaster. The baking pans were covered in grease and the stove was dirty. The refrigerator did not have a working ice maker or even ice trays. The bathroom was clean but very small. Bed in master suite had a severe dip in it. Towels were old and stained. Thankfully a variety of shopping centers and restaurants were within 3 miles of the location.
We would have been happy to correct anything during your stay if we had been made aware of these items. The TV is broadcast only as most people use internet for TV now.
We will correct these flaws immediately and supply new towels. We thought the cleaner had taken care of any kitchen items.
