Amazing property and house!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for an annual reunion with my girlfriends from college. We go somewhere new each year -- generally on a lake or beach. Talk about exceeding expectations!! (and we are very picky about where we stay!)

Hoping the owners update the pictures on VRBO because each room in the house has been updated with new furniture, rugs, leather couches, coffee tables, cool lighting, soft throws and pillows, new bedding, etc! The house was clean and very well-decorated with a cozy lake cottage / rustic feel that we all really enjoyed. There were plenty of living areas to gather the large group, but also a lot of quiet nooks to hid away and read a book.

After watching the sunset each night on the second story of the dock or the Adirondack chairs by the lake, we would head to the kitchen to make our meal. Loved the long counter which gave us a lot of space to hang out and gab while we prepared the food. The end of each evening was spent on the screened in porch (definite favorite) with a few bottles of red, listening to the night sounds of the crickets and frogs in the company of best friends. It was awesome!!

We had a boat and spent a couple days out on the lake. Lanier Islands is very close (about 20 minutes by boat) and we ate at Pig Tails, which we loved. Good food, live band, lots of TVs and great cocktails!

Walter (the owner) was amazing to work with, and was very patient to answer our million questions about what to do and how to get everywhere. We loved that we felt like we were in a remote place, but there was a Publix less than five miles away. Very convenient.

This was one of our favorite reunion spots to date! We are already talking about coming back. We couldn't have been more pleased!

Great get away lake house!

  • 5 of 5

We evacuated our home in Florida due to Hurricane Irma, so we had to make last minute arrangements. We have two large dogs, my 89 year old mother in law and possibly two more adults, an infant and a 3 year old. So we weren't even certain how many people and bedrooms we needed. Walter was AWESOME at helping us out at the last minute and the home was very comfortable for everyone. Lots of room. Plenty of pillows, blankets, sofas, TVs, kitchen amenities, gas grill, and a great sunset over Lake Lanier!

Amazing Lake House on Lanier

  • 5 of 5

We had a fun and relaxing weekend at this comfortable and well-kept lake house. To start, the owner was flexible and easy to deal with. We changed our rental dates a few times and Walter was accommodating. This house is really nice! It's spacious with 4 separate seating areas so people could spread out. Plus there is a front patio and a back patio. All 6 of the beds are comfortable and the kitchen has the longest eating counter I have ever seen which made meal times easy! But the best part is the screened-in porch with a swing and a beautiful view of the lake. We enjoyed the sunsets on the porch and played games out there into the night. We went fishing off the 2 story dock and enjoyed a ride on the paddle boat. The back yard is expansive with lots of room for playing kickball with the kids. We can't wait to go back - we have decided going to this lake house will be an annual trip for our group.

Not thrilled

  • 1 of 5

I would not rent this house again. We rented it for one week. The furnishings are very worn. Blamed us for broken remote and worn carpet which were already worn out. Kept entire deposit. Would not rent again. We have stayed in much nicer places in the same area for less money and got entire deposits back. Have never had this happen before and we go to Lanier every year.

Owner's Response: We have consistently had excellent reviews over many years. During this stay the renter's dog chewed a hole in the carpet and chewed up the TV remote. We had to replace both with a substantial cost to us. This was only the second time in over a decade we had to cash a security deposit check. We have exceeded our renters expectations in the past and will continue to in the future.

Beautiful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had a reunion at this beautiful spot on the lake. The grounds, lake view, and beautiful sunsets with wonderful golden light enchanted us each day. This house is very comfortable for the lake and was perfect for our large family and a few guests during the week. The owners were a delight to do business with and we will definitely come back next year.

We had a BLAST!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was the hub for our family reunion. We had 10 family members 6 adults, 4 kids, (16 mon, 10, 4, 15) who lived in Cumming 20 min away, and we had 7 adults and 3 kids (6, 4, 2) staying at the house. We loved this house. The floor plan allowed for many pockets of activities to go on at the same time. Sometimes the kids played on the upstairs floor to ceiling screened in porch with hanging swing, and table and chairs, and plenty of floor space for building things with legos and blocks. It also had a gorgeous view of lake and tall standing pines, and another view of the play equipment in the side yard. That made it easy to monitor any kids from the porch that were playing on the fort/swing set/slide. The huge living room had leather seating area (with sleeper sofa) for TV/DVR viewing, and a clear view of the kids playing on the porch. The sliding glass doors to the porch kept the noise outside.

The upper level has 3 bedrooms. The description on the web is confusing. Maybe my description will help. The Master bedroom with it's view of the lake had a kIng bed and it's own bathroom and sitting area. The 2nd bedroom had a queen bed with a "Jack and Jill" bathroom that connected with the 3rd bedroom. This 3rd bedroom had 4 twin beds in a row with plenty of room to move around. The kitchen area had great seating for 12, and the long counter area was perfect for food prep too. Note: This house has a wonderful LARGE walk-in pantry making it so nice to organize our stuff.

Downstairs was the 4th bedroom with a King bed, bathroom in the hallway and its own living room with tv too. It was perfect to put kids down there for nap time, as none of the other activity noise could be heard down there. Another porch downstairs, only this one was glass enclosed, had a daybed in it, and "gramps" loved waking up in the morning and having a view of the lake. Windows crank open for the breeze off the lake. There is also an access door to the outside patio from the porch door wall. The patio has a small propane grill and seating area. The dock was used for swimming, and kids fishing, ( some perch, bass, blue gill and set them free). We docked my sister's pontoon boat and jet ski there. The upper deck is a sun deck to catch some rays and breeze. I had a medical condition that made it hard for me to walk, but Walter has a golf cart to rent that makes it easier to carry stuff up and down the hill, and a paddle boat that was so much fun too! Walter is great!
