Overview

About the property

Quaint 2-bedroom, 1.5 bath lakefront cottage -- close to the water, great views

FishHook is a timeless and unique “Hemingway style” cottage, offering an unforgettable Lake Lanier experience. A “stone’s throw” from the shoreline, this home sits less than 100 feet from the water’s edge at the mouth of a wide cove with deep water and main channel access. A private, two-story double slip dock is just steps away down a gently-sloping, grassed lot and is well-equipped for your stay on the water with plenty of options for lovers of sun and shade. There are both dining and bistro tables, swivel rockers, lounge chairs, and umbrellas, and at the end of the day, make sure you take a leisurely stroll through the 2 acres of Corp-owned property adjacent to our lot and celebrate the sunset!

Within minutes of your arrival, you'll realize that FishHook is truly a special place, full of character and nostalgic charm – a one of a kind lake cottage. Extensive stonework highlights the home’s exterior -- accenting a patio, fire pit and summer kitchen -- while the home’s tongue and groove wood interior plays up to an artful blend of vintage and new. Rustic lighting, rich wood and fabric accents, natural fiber rugs, and bamboo occasional pieces have been tastefully blended with new inspiration to create the signature "Hemingway" style. Original brick floors ... vaulted, suspended beam ceiling ... brick fireplace and louvered windows maintain the charm of this quintessential lakeside cottage while granite counter tops, stainless kitchen appliances and new hardwood floors in the bedrooms add a modern flair.

You’ll fall in love with the open floor plan and simple living of this single-story cottage. It's a layout that allows you to really enjoy the company of those you call "family". The kitchen, family room and dining room all open onto a spacious 10’ x 30’ screen porch complete with dining table and additional casual seating. The kitchen is fully-equipped, even for the most discerning of chefs, and meals can be served informally at the eat-in island with seating for 5, at the dining table with seating for 6, or alfresco on the porch. There are two beautifully appointed bedrooms – a king master with half bath and flat screen Smart TV and a second bedroom sleeping five in a twin over full bunk with twin trundle and a separate twin bed. Indoor amenities include central A/C and heat, wood-burning fireplace, ceiling fans, AT&T U-verse, WiFi, 50" flat-screen Smart TV, DVD player, and stainless dishwasher, stove and refrigerator.

Under a canopy of native hardwoods, the house benefits from generous amounts of shade and invites you to let the outdoors in. Enjoy the cool breeze off the lake from any number of places – the screened-in porch that runs the entire length of the house, the stone fire pit patio with Adirondack chairs, or the outdoor kitchen. With 180 degree lake views from most anywhere on the property, your only decision will be, “Where do I want to spend the next hour?” You'll never tire of the beautiful views that surround this place.

So, if you're looking for a place that will take you back to an easier, simpler time, a place to reconnect with yourself, family and friends, then we invite you to experience FishHook! We hope you leave "hooked!"

Great place to spend the Easter Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four nights over Easter weekend in between college visits. Fish Hook was exactly what we needed! The view was beautiful, even with the low lake levels right now, we made good use of the dock and fire pit and loved drinking coffee each morning and taking afternoon naps on the front porch. We had everything thing we needed for a wonderful stay.

Best property ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We travel coast to coast and this by far has been the best rental we've ever stayed in. Every detail is taken into account, from the towels, to the pillows, the wood burning grill and fire pit and I could go on and on. This place is excellent for company. I thought it was even more beautiful than the pictures. Will stay again

This cabin is a must stay.

  • 5 of 5

Fishhook was an awesome place. Our whole family enjoyed it very much. Our favorite place to hang out was the front porch. Anyone looking for a super clean, quiet, and relaxing place, this is it.

Owner's Response: We loved having you and your family, and I agree, the screen porch is a little slice of Heaven! It's the perfect spot to enjoy coffee in the morning, a nap in the afternoon, and dinner in the evening.

COmfotable, cozy, cute and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent visit at FishHook. The home is so comfortable and well laid out, it accommodated my family of five without a problem. It was incredibly clean and had everything we needed for our visit. Enjoyed cozy evenings by the fire and crisp mornings with coffee on the dock. Even though lake Lanier is quite low right now the water at the dock was still very deep. Also appreciated the very large screened porch.

Debbie was available to take my call as I was having some trouble entering the home upon arrival. She was very helpful and friendly.

We really enjoyed our stay!
