Enjoy swimming fishing kayaking or skiing on private Lake Lanier . The house has its own private beach great for little ones or use the diving board off the deck !the property is just minutes from downtown Tryon ,Landrum and Saluda . Antiquing galor,Art Galaries ,Equestrian center , white water rafting and golf are all on the list of things to do,not to mention the Blueridge parkway! The house is one of the few proprties that has ample parking and does not have a steep incline to the lake or house! The hot tub is no longer there although it is still in one of the pictures .
Walk in beach , large parking area , pasture in back suitable for horses. NO STEPS UP AND DOWN THE MOUNTAIN !
Just don't go inside; The smell alone will knock you over & make you gag. No exaggerating & being as gentle as we can, even after 2 candles, 5 cans of air freshener & 'sucking it up' ... we were still pained. Not sure if the smell was attributed to the numerous large urine stains in the carpet (maybe a pet?!) or the fact that this property was definitely NOT cleaned before our arrival.
The positives: The OUTDOOR views & surroundings are BEAUTIFUL !!!!!!! The water is serene & enjoyable for all ages with decks & activities (swim, fish & boat).
Overall: If the nauseating smell & dirty home (lots of pet hair, dirty dust, toilets/sinks, alive & dead bugs everywhere & missing light bulbs) & downstairs toilet is VERY slow to flush even water ... can ever be remedied, it would be an incredible property with a polite owner & easy pre-check in process.
I stayed here for the month of August and was nowhere ready to leave when it was over! Perfect for my dog, awesome location, plenty of space, owners easy to get ahold of. I would recommend a getaway to this location in a heartbeat.
We enjoyed several days at this lake house relaxing with family and seeing old friends. As one of the few properties that could accommodate eight people comfortably there were plenty of beds and the place was large enough to find a quiet spot and not be on top of each other. Plenty of parking. Being right on the lake we were able to take full advantage of jumping off the dock into the refreshing Lake Lanier water. The only down side was that the place could use some TLC. It wasn't that clean, one of the upstairs bedrooms had dog fur all over the comforter and the room reeked of wet dog, the beds were old and uncomfortable, the dead cock roaches and myriad cobwebs and spiders were gross, dishes and utensils had to be washed before being used, the dock had nails sticking up and the ladder on the dock was very rusted, and the upstairs bathroom was so small that you had to lean to use the toilet. Additionally, there was dog excrement all over the yard area that led to the "beach" area that was so covered in muck I actually sunk to my knee while trying to launch the canoe - definitely not a place to let my toddler play and one of the reasons we rented this house over another. There were life vests, a canoe, a kayak, and some water toys but there was only one kayak paddle that was broken in two halves. I am sorry to say I really felt let down by the condition of the house. To his credit, the owner did not charge us a pet deposit fee, did send a cleaning lady to take away the dirty comforter, and was quick to respond when we reported water leaking from the upstairs through the kitchen light over the island. If it was more clean or well taken care it would have been a nice visit.
The house is perfectly located. You are close to IGA and close to town. You are on a very gently sloping lot which is not usual and is great, because you have more room outside.
The house and yard are perfect for a large family with kids and pets.
Owner was very accommodating and easy to get in touch with.
This was our first visit and we really enjoyed Lake Lanier. The house is located on a peaceful cove, perfect for kids swimming. We have rented via VRBO several times and were a bit disappointed with this property. The previous guests must have had a pet bc there was dog hair all over the porch, basement and stairs. Also, the house looks as if it had been staged for photos or a sale bc they were misleading. There were old TV's sitting on the floor, furniture missing and the basement door was coming off the hinges. There was a lawn chair and window screen in the lake by the ladder, not good when you have kids swimming. Seemed as if the owners had not been there is some time bc the grass on the "beach" had not been cut and the boat garage doors were open. The owner did let us stay a few extra hours on the departure day which was much appreciated and the kids loved the diving board off the dock. Also, the main living areas were clean and beds comfortable. Seems as if the house has been neglected. We would like to rent again if these things would be addressed and the house had a little TLC bc location is amazing. However at this time, we would choose another property.
We had a wonderful time and made lots of memories in your house on Lake Lanier. Only wished we had a few more days to enjoy it. Loved the open floorplan; We could cook while the kids fished off the porch, etc. We had family up for dinner Sat. night and had plenty of room for everyone. Could use a few more pots and pans though. The house is suited for all ages from little ones to those who no longer do stairs so well. Plenty of beds and plenty of linens available for all. Fell in love with Tryon and the IGA is an AMAZING little grocery with all sorts of organic and specialty items!! Ate at Side Street Pizza one night; great as usual. We'll definitely be back!
