CALENDAR: We strive to provide you with accurate and up-to-date availability on our calendar to ease your vacation planning. We block it off as soon as someone confirms their stay.

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). Also has additional room with 2 twin over twin bunk beds that sleep 4, a baby crib, loveseat sofa, and TV with DVD/VCR player. One car garage on the house (there is a detached 2 car garage that will not be accessible). Stainless steel, large capacity 4.7cu ft Washer and 7.2cu ft Dryer available.

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.

This place is great! Beautiful setting with a cute, fun house.

  • 4 of 5

The water we was low & that was the only drawback to it. The fenced, gated side of the dock was perfect for the 2 year old granddaughter staying with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words! Unfortunately the water level is one of the few things we can't control!! Come back anytime we enjoyed having you as our guests!

Beautiful view, wonderful accommodations, and a great place to fish.

  • 5 of 5

The home was the perfect destination for a weekend getaway. Even though the water was down the fishing was still plentiful. It is by far one of the best and most affordable rental locations I've had the pleasure of staying.

Great time, wonderful and quite getaway

  • 4 of 5

House was well maintained and in a quite area. We were looking for somewhere just to get away and rest for a few days and this did the trick. Hot Tub was a nice little bonus on the cool evenings. Overall stay was great.

Enjoyed every minute!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this home for nearly three months while back in the United States to deliver my second son. It was the PERFECT family home and provided us with a an unforgettable summer. Stephanie and her family went to impossible lengths to make my stay comfortable. The home is well maintained, easy to keep clean, convenient to the grocery store and has fantastic safety features for small children: a fenced in section of the dock, toys, child-proof latches on exterior doors, gate on the back deck...it allowed me to have my toddler run around the home without fear that he would take off for the lake. I can't recommend this home, or this family, enough!

Lovely Home, Excellent Lake View, Quiet Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Thompson's lake house. It had everything we needed to cook our meals, do our laundry, rest and relax, and even a place for our little one to sleep. The home was very clean and well-decorated. We didn't use the grills as they were a bit dirty, but we did sit out on the dock several times. The home was just the right size for us and easy to access from hwy 400. The grocery store was just down the street, and lots of restaurants a few exits south. Highly recommended. The owners were easy to communicate with and fast to answer any questions we had. We didn't get to use the spa because of the rain, but it was right by the door and looked very convenient! Only suggestions would be a few more chairs in the living room and more trash bags under the sink. Other than that, thank you for a wonderful place to stay! We'll definitely keep this home on our list for our next visit to GA!
