About the property

4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathrooms only steps to lake - Gorgeous views!

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10)

This newly remodeled Lake Lanier home is the perfect spot for your Lake Lanier vacation. The renovation was completed in 2014 and the outdoor kitchen pavilion in March 2016. Located on a huge cove, this waterfront property has lake views from almost every room in the house. The house comes with a large, private dock with party deck on a quiet area of the lake in Gainesville--sit in the shade down below or up top and get some sun.

This fabulous home on Lake Lanier was purchased because of the great views and the ideal spot on the lake. It is well suited for a family vacation, family reunion or even two or three families staying together. The property is only a few steps to the dock and lake, and the grassy area gently slopes to the water. The house is convenient to shopping and restaurants in Gainesville. Lake Lanier Islands Resort and water park is about 25 minutes away.

There are 4 bedrooms (see below) and 3 full bathrooms and one half bath. There is one bedroom on the main level and the other 3 are upstairs. Two of the 4 bedrooms open to the upstairs deck and have wonderful lake views. You can watch people tube, ski or fish from the house or dock and enjoy the sunset as well. The main living area has large windows overlooking the lake. The kitchen and the eating area can seat 8 people comfortably for dinner and a couple more at the island. There is seating outside on the patio as well.

WI-FI is available. There are two flat screen TV's (satellite service); one on each floor.

On the dock, you can sit and enjoy the sun on the upper part of the large party dock or stay below for more shade or fishing. Either location allows for a great view of lake activities. Port Royale is the closest Marina; Balus Creek or Mountain View are the two closest boat ramps. If interested, we have kayaks available for rent.

****Please note, we do NOT allow events at the home such as weddings, large birthday bashes, bachelor parties, etc.****

We are a residential location and cannot accommodate a large EVENT. Family gatherings, couples, mature women or men's groups are fine and welcome. If you have more than 10 or 11 people, please inquire about suitability of space. We strive to maintain our home in pristine condition and have found party events are not in keeping with the vision for our vacation rental. Thank you for your understanding.

About Joni Tuttle

Retired-- time to own a place at the lake.

Joni Tuttle purchased this house in 2014

Why Joni Tuttle chose Lake Lanier

My son and his wife own a house close by and this house was the perfect location on the lake for me. When all the family and grandchildren are in town we can all gather right there together on the lake for a fun time. The lake views in this house are wonderful and the walk is extremely gentle to the dock.

What makes this house unique

The view is absolutely fabulous and one of the main reasons for my purchase. The short walk to the dock is also nice.

Property was fabulous

  • 5 of 5

My family vacations together each summer and try to find some place new to visit each year. This is the best experience we have had since we've been doing this. The house was perfect for three families. The playroom upstairs was perfect for the children to play or watch tv while the adults enjoyed themselves downstairs. We did not have to leave the property because everyone enjoyed the lake so much. We really loved having the kayak and paddle board and the children loved just jumping into the lake over and over again. The house was in wonderful shape and the yard was immaculate. The description on the website was accurate. We enjoyed an evening by the fire pit making s'mores and making up stories. We used the outside kitchen every evening - it was so convenient and we didn't have to heat up the house. This is one place we will likely revisit in the next year or two. Thank you for everything.

The perfect week

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you drive up to this beautifully kept home you know you Have started your vacation!

Our stay and week at Lake Lanier in this home exceeded our expectations and well worth the 14 hour drive from CT.

The home is meticulously kept and offers all comforts needed during your stay. The home is clean, furniture and linens in good condition, beautifully manicured exterior and perfect location on a quiet cove of the lake. Love the outdoor kitchen and fire pit! Love the porch swing! Love the double level dock! I can keep going with the great amenities of the home there are so many!

The owner is accommodating and quick to respond if you need anything.

If I could do more stars than five I would! We look forward to returning next year!

We loved this place!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and loved every day! The house is beautiful with a long almost flat grassy backyard with an easy walk to the water. We had 3 couples who each had 2 children and the house was plenty roomy enough for all of us. One morning we saw 2 deer crossing the water on a sand bar which was so cool. It's also super easy for the kids to catch Brim at the dock. We highly recommend this place!

Fantastic place, fantastic time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 7 days enjoying every aspect of the property. The house was just perfect for the family. Plenty of room to come together and to steal away for a little quiet time or a nap. The property enjoys lake views from every angle. Plenty of outdoor options to sit and enjoy the lake...deck, patio, outdoor kitchen/dining area and of course the dock. The lakefront access is great....plenty of room on the dock to sun, swim, lounge, tie off the boat, wave runner, kayaks...whatever you have. We enjoyed the stand up paddle boards offered by the owners and they added a whole new experience for the kids to spend time with the lake and some of the surrounding scenery. The cove where the house is located offered a great place to tube, ski, boat and swim and be out of the main body of the lake. We took a midweek break and went to the marina for dinner (10 min boat ride) and had a great time listening to music and enjoying the atmosphere.

The owners were very accommodating and did everything possible to make sure the stay was exactly what we expected. Could not ask for better. We made great memories here and look forward to returning in the future.

Amazing, amazing, amazing.

  • 5 of 5

This property did not disappoint. We were in Gainesville to attend an event at Road Atlanta raceway. We usually stay in hotels, but decided to get a house so we could all stay together. This house provided our race team a wonderful place to getaway from the hustle and stress of the track and relax. We were able to cook and eat meals together It was an easy 20 minute drive to the track.

The interior was clean, comfortable and very well maintained. The outdoor kitchen and fire pit, amazing. Joni's customer server was above and beyond. We ordered firewood, and it was waiting for us. The kayaks and stand up paddle board was delivered and pickup for us.

I will recommend this property to friends and family. We will return next year for sure!
