Stay at robins nest

  • 4 of 5

Everything went well, house is very spacious. I have no complaints, just a suggestion. The dock that goes with the house is not usable, it could be moved slightly and could be used be a small boat, jet ski, etc. It presently is not usable, one end is up on the rocks because the lake is low, but it has the ability to be maintained, and moved with the water level as its designed to do. I think this would be a valuable renting point if done.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your input and I will take your advice. Regretfully, I held off adjusting the dock because I knew the water level would be temporarily low due to bridge construction. Their project has taken longer than I imagined. 😔�

Not for those looking for a true lake experience

  • 2 of 5

The house is quaint and open. Beds are comfortable, and we did enjoy views from the back porch. We were really disappointed, however, when we arrived to find the dock pitched at an angle due to low water in the cove. The purpose of our trip was to enjoy the water but the dock was not in good condition and was rather precarious to walk on. Although the owner was quick to respond to my inquiry, I think she should have let us know about the dock condition and water level prior to renting. Living areas did not seem to be thoroughly cleaned.

Beautiful view, lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and several of our friends recently stayed at Robin's home for a weekend at the lake . Photos don't do it justice! The view from the home is wonderful. The house is very spacious, the beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen is large and functional. We had a great time cooking, playing games, watching tv, and swimming from the boat dock. We loved our stay and would definitely recommend it and return again in the future! The house was a little hard to find at first, but once we figured it out, we were in love! Thanks Robin :-)

Great Location if not wanting to boat or swim

  • 3 of 5

The house was clean and cozy. If you plan on having a boat, check the lake level. Anything below 4 feet, the dock is unusable, as it was 5 feet below on our stay. Was on the dirt when we rented and were not told so. Cooking pots and pans were not so great, so keep in mind if you want to cook all your meals. Overall, if you are looking for a house to relax in, without boating or swimming, then this house is OK.

Owner's Response: We have had an unusual summer in regards to the lakes level and though its public knowledge I do try to inform guests when the lake level is below full so, my apologies to anyone if I failed in passing on this information. There is a handy free app that you can down load to your phone that gives daily updates- Lake Lanier Water Level. Today August 22nd 2017 the level is up but still 5.44 feet below full.

Beautiful view and very spacious

  • 5 of 5

Robins nest by far very tranquil. The entire back of the home is surrounded with windows and the photos do not do it as much justice.

The decor is also very homey, eccentric and cottage chic. The home is perfect for a group of couples who enjoy going for walks because the neighborhood has great areas just to explore through the trees and also a trail to get to the lake. We cannot wait to book again. Robin the host is also very responsive.
