Close To The Water Cottage On Lake Lanier

Quiet cottage on Lake Lanier is perfect for a quick getaway. Located on the north side of the lake in the Chestatee area this home has plenty of amenities to enjoy what the lake has to offer. The house sits about 50 feet from the water's edge. If you prefer to be on the water you can enjoy the setting sun on a two level party dock. A professionally built fire pit is ideal for those cooler evenings overlooking the lake. The cottage itself was remodeled and includes granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. A comfortable living room seats at least 6 and and includes leather furniture and 55" flat screen TV. Off the living areas is a large vaulted screen porch that overlooks the water. It can be cooled by the ceiling fan or heated by the propane gas heater.

The two level dock has plenty of space to relax and enjoy the beautiful sunsets and is a short walk from the house. The upper level includes a 10ft x 20ft covered area for shade. The slip on the dock is in use but feel free to tie up your boat if need be.

                                            We had a great time! The fire pit and BBQ grill were the best features but bring a flashlight since the stairs are dark and steep!! Wish we had warmer weather so we could have used the boat dock!

                                            Close to the water and close to shopping

                                            We had a lovely time during the week of Thanksgiving. Myself, my wife, my awesome MIL, and two teens. Plus two goofy dogs. Only 10 minutes to the outlet mall and the most amazing Ingles I've ever seen. Super quiet cove and the dock is a great place to hang out. Smores around the fire pit every night. Grilled every night. Epic game of Pictionary. Well equipped kitchen and extremely clean. Caught a very nice sized spotted bass off the dock for a delicious appetizer. We will return. Super easy drive from our house in N. Decatur.

                                            We came up early to prepare for a race today. All of us wanted somewhere peaceful, quiet and away from everything. This was perfect. The house is very nice. We were concerned about four people and one shower but it all worked out. Not sure we even realized we were sharing a shower. We spent Saturday on the lake deck, reading, talking and enjoying the view. Perfect way to prepare for the Spartan Race.

                                            Wonderful retreat

                                            We spent a long weekend at this cabin, and it was nothing short of amazing! It is located in a quiet, secluded area of the lake which made boating and water activities easy. We spent most of the weekend using the outdoor spaces! It was a great cabin, and we hope to use it again in the near future!

                                            The property was beautiful and very relaxing!

                                            Every year a few of my girlfriends and I plan a girls trip to spend some quality time relaxing and catching up on life together. This year we chose lake Lanier and we loved everything about it. The location was beautiful and the lake house offered several amenities. We spent several hours each day relaxing on the dock or swimming in the lake. In the evenings we sat by the fire pit and grilled on the BBQ. The house is also located close to several wineries so we spent an afternoon having brunch and tasting the local wines at wolf mountain. Overall this was an excellent trip, an excellent lake house and an excellent view! Thank you for sharing your home with us, we would love to return in the future.

                                            Thanks Jim and family for having such a comfortable cozy cottage equipped with everything you could possibly need. We brought our wake boat and tied off to the dock for the week with no problem what so ever. This place is located on a quiet cove where we didn't see a single neighbor all week. The lake is absolutely beautiful with clear clean deep water. What a wonderful time we had building memories as a family. I can't wait to come back!!!!!
