Bring your boat and launch it a quick 5-minute drive from the home. I have extensive knowledge of the Forsyth County and Lake Lanier areas, as I was a resident for more than 20-years.

We do not allow for events nor do we allow for extra people coming over outside the guests staying on property.

We have security cameras on the outside of the house for security purposes only.

About Lisa West

My name is Lisa and I am a 20-year Lake Lanier Resident and I have all the inside scoop! I personally designed and selected all of the finishes and furnishings in the home to create a inviting, comfortable but stylish space. I poured just as much passion into the exterior spaces as I did the interiors. The best part is that I raised my children in this home, entertained countless friends and family at the property and I would love for your friends and family to make life-long memories in our special corner of the lake.

Lisa West purchased this house in 2001

Luxury on Lake Lanier!!! What could be better?

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jan 3, 2016

The Bear loved his getaway in the North Georgian mountains on beautiful Lake Lanier, and rates the experience at Pointe Retreat with a perfect 10 out of 10 rating. From the moment the Bear walked in, the incredible view and beautifully appointed living space made a great first impression. The stay truly lived up to this first impression – the Bear felt like a king in the lap of luxury. During the stay, there was absolutely no shortage of fun to be had – the Bear and his friends enjoyed large brunches, dinners and bbqs together, hiked at a nearby park, and played a host of games including many air hockey matches (which was a big hit with the Bear’s young friends). The indoor and outdoor crackling fires were also the perfect backdrop to working on a group puzzle and watching football and movies together. The Bear even took a plunge in the lake; he quickly followed it up with some time in the hot tub with his friends to warm up. The Bear loved the large hot tub – what a treat! After all their playing, the Bear and his friends slept comfortably in each of the six bedrooms, excited to wake up for another fun day together. Lastly, part of a great vacation is to feel welcomed and the owner did that and more – Lisa truly went above and beyond to ensure the Bear’s stay was flawless – many thanks to Lisa for a vacation to remember!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place that feels like a home, this is it......I'm already trying to find a way to return for a corporate outing. Would be completely comfortable for up to 6 couples or a large family to spend a spectacular week/weekend at the lake.

Beautiful Lakefront Property!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home tremendously! The view of the lake was so very nice. The kitchen was well stocked with every pot, pan and tool we could ever need. The outdoor amenities including the fireplace, hot tub and expansive patios were so nice--even though it turned cold, we were able to spend most of the long weekend outdoors. The owner was very responsive, answering several questions I had prior to our visit. I would highly recommend this property to others.

Elizabeth property is amazing. It has it all. You just need to pack your clothes and go

  • 5 of 5

We went to Elizabeth house during hurricane Irma. We were 3 families composed of 6 adults and 8 kids.

Once we got to the house we felt very fortunate. Elizabeth met with us at check in and showed us around. She was very welcoming and extra generous. Her property is well equipped, amazingly decorated, clean and conviently located on lake lanier. We jumped into the lake, we went fishing, and enjoyed just being in the house playing games.

I would definitely go again and visit Elizabeth and I would definitely recommend this property.

Bi-Annual Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 adults, 6 kids (8 to 1) and 2 Labs for the week and the house was perfect. The size was great with lots of bathrooms and the outdoor decks and grill areas worked out well as we ate almost all meals in the house (6 little kids makes dining out a challenge). The hot tub was ideal as a pool for the kids who were in it quite a bit each day. We had a rental pontoon boat and ski boat at the dock so a lot of water sports as well. Just one caution, the walk to the dock from the house is steep with quite a few steps so we older folks with bad knees limited our trips. Lisa is great to deal with and the home is decorated beautifully.

Perfect weather made for a perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We are beach people but decided on heading to the lake this year. We had a great time on Lake Lanier! Having access to a boat is a must for this location. House was great, neighborhood was nice - especially all of the wildlife!! We saw deer most every day! We were lucky in the weather department - a "cool front" was with us most of the trip so no humidity and temps like late spring! Had a great time with family and would stay again. Lisa is easy to work with and a very hands on owner.
