THE RIGHT PLACE: Plan your next getaway to a relaxing place on Lake Lanier in Cumming, Ga. Whether you are looking for a just a weekend retreat, a week escape, or even an entire month length of stay you have found the right place!

BEST LOCATION AND VIEW: Best location on the lake located in Cumming, just south of Browns Bridge near the deepest part of the lake. Our lake house has a beautiful lake view through our wall of windows on the back side of the house. Located in a quiet neighborhood so you will really appreciate the peace and quiet during your vacation. You can enjoy being out on the lake all day enjoying water sports or fishing; or you can relax on the large covered dock, fish off the dock, or lay out on the lake soaking up some sun in a private, no wake cove with little traffic. Whatever you choose, you’ll make some unforgettable memories with friends and family.

CLOSE AMENITIES: Hammonds Fishing Center, Publix grocery, North Georgia Premium Outlets, and fine dining all located within 20 minutes driving distance. Just around the corner is Young Deer Creek Park for an easy access to a boat ramp. Just a few minutes boat ride to Lake Lanier Islands and Water Park.

DESCRIPTION: This house is a three bedroom, two bath, with one queen and one full bed. Large living space with leather sofa, electric fireplace, flat screen TV, DVD player, dining area for 6 with room for 2 at the bar. Furnished kitchen with large fridge, gas stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, and coffee maker (uses K-cups or grounds).

PATIOS: Two lakeside patios, one side with a masonry charcoal grill, electric grill, and seating for 2. The other side has a 6-seater Hot Tub.

THE DOCK, BEST AREA FOR SWIMMING: The walk down to the dock is easily accessible with only a slight incline and 8 steps, great for those who have a hard time with steep hills or lots of steps. You'll really enjoy the large, (34'X28') two slip covered dock. It has an amazing sunset view that you won't want to miss and the tin roof makes for a relaxing evening in the rain. Entire dock is covered; right side has fencing for little ones so they can not jump in or get through the rails and there are two infant/toddler swings. Located in a large private cove in a no wake zone, perfect for enjoying the day on the dock or swimming. Has stairs on the dock for easy entry and exit from the lake. We are in deep water, 15ft under the dock at full pool.

About Sam Thompson

This lake house has been in our family for over 40 years, but just recently became ours. Over the last 4 years we have worked hard getting it ready for others to enjoy and even added a few upgrades including an additional stand up shower and updating the kitchen. Our family has enjoyed this property making memories year after year fishing with our friends and family, swimming all day, riding on the boat, and enjoying water sports. We love visiting and enjoying the lake but when we can't be there we want others to be able to enjoy it as much as we do. We hope you feel at home and come back year after year.

Sam Thompson purchased this house in 2011

Why Sam Thompson chose Lake Lanier

Cozy, beautiful view, great location, quiet neighborhood, and perfect for swimming in a no wake cove. We have accommodations for children including safety latches on the doors, toys in the closet for small children, infant/toddler swings on the dock, and half of the dock is fenced in to help prevent falls into the lake.

Fishing with the grands!

  • 5 of 5

My four grandchildren had a ball on their first-ever fishing trip. The dock was so convenient and easy to access, even for the three-year-old. They could actually see the fish going for their bait. The house is in the perfect location, everything was clean, stocked and available for use. The hot tub was a hit! Thanks for the wonderful memories - the wife actually wants to come back next year.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was nice and right on the lake. We were able to bring the boat and keep it at the dock. The grill on the porch was great, and the Hot Tub was a big plus. I would definitly recommend this place to others.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, comfortable, and very well done. Honestly, the picture do not do it justice! We have stayed at several house on lake Lanier and we really appreciated that the walk to the lake was paved. We definitely would recommend staying here!
