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!"

Short but great!
My wife and I had only the weekend to get away from it all. FishHook was a great place to do it. Very clean, nicely decorated, well stocked kitchen, comfortable bed, beautiful yard. Planning to come back with the kids for a longer stay. Thanks for the Mother's Day flowers, Debbie. Love your place!
Great little cabin on the lake
The lake cabin is great for a small group, we had 4 in our party and it was the perfect size.
The fire pit and the grill were great for the evenings. We loved the dock and this side of the lake is so quiet and calm. We will definitely stay here again.
This house and location was so peaceful and nice. The amenities on the inside of the house were breathtaking and the yard is absolutely peaceful. We will definitely be back. Thank you for everything Debbie. You were great to work with and answered all of my questions.
I'm so glad you enjoyed our little "slice of heaven!" Being on the north part of the lake next to 2 acres of private Corp property definitely helps the "peaceful" part of what we offer at FishHook. Looking forward to having you back!
We were so impressed when we arrived at FishHook. It was so beautiful! The yard is perfect for hanging out together over a fire or maybe down at the awesome dock to sit in the sun. Once we entered the home we were surprised at how big it is. The pictures surely do not do the home justice. We were greeted with a personal one to welcome us and the home has everything you will need while on vacation. Debbie was wonderful when it came to any questions we had and she also had some suggestions about places to visit while we were there. Overall we had a terrific time and we will be back! Thank you Debbie!!!
I'm so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and already want to come back. FishHook is truly one of those of places. We'd love to have you!
Loved this house
Went for a fishing trip with a friend. The house was clean and welcoming. The owner pays attention to details and adds some nice extra touches. The dock was great for fishing and parking the boat. We caught several fish from the dock. Sitting around a fire outside was one of the highlights of the trip. A rental can be something that has to be overcome for an enjoyable trip but it can also make a trip. This place is the latter. We will be back as often as we can. My only gripe is having to strip bed sheets and take them to the laundry as part of check out. That’s a steep cleaning charge to ask guests to do that but it’s still worth it.
Cozy, quaint comfortable family retreat!
First rate cabin right on the lake perfect for 4-6. Very comfortable & cozy with a great porch, dock and fire pit, beautiful lake views.
