About Marilyn Warren

We are retired Alaskans who summer in Alaska and winter on Lake Lanier to be near our kids and grand kids. This is a great location year around. Only 5 minutes to grocery store, banks and restaurants. 15 minutes to Costco.

Marilyn Warren purchased this house in 2015

Why Marilyn Warren chose Gainesville

We fell in love with the quiet cove location with great views to the lake and large open feel to the house.

What makes this house unique

We choose this home because of the beautiful lake setting and closeness to shopping, North Georgia Outlet Mall and Georgia 400 yet is in a quiet country setting. Only 5 minutes to Publix grocery or Kroger and several restaurants. Paradise Boat Rentals at Port Royale Marina is less than 5 minutes away by car. Many wineries for wine tasting 60 minutes away. Near Road Atlanta in Braselton.

House was great! Nice, secluded location. Property obviously well kept.

One thing that would be helpful would be a list of local eateries. We can pass along our findings to the owners and perhaps they will include in future "Welcome package."

Beautiful property; no detail overlooked!

  • 5 of 5

We are so sad to be leaving this beautiful home! The pictures don’t do it justice, and it is immaculately well kept. The updated kitchen features beautiful finishes. Fully stocked with linens, paper goods, soaps, dishes, etc. We really enjoyed lazy mornings at the house, exploring the area all day, and the fire pit and dock in the evenings. We will return to this house when we come back to Lake Lanier.

Some of our favorite activities: hiking at Charleston Park, which is just a couple miles down the road; boat rentals at Port Royal Marine, about 4 miles away; and the restaurant Antebellum, which is located in Flowery Branch, on the other side of the lake.

Thanks to Marilyn for being so easy to work with and for making our first visit to Lake Lanier unforgettable!

Loved it. Great place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time, the view was beautiful, the floorplan perfect for a family, and the kitchen was well appointed. It was a welcome relaxing retreat from the difficulties we encountered while on the run from Hurricane Irma!

Beautifully maintained home and property.

Christy and Marilyn we're wonderful hosts to their beautiful lake front home. Our family had to evacuate Florida because of hurricane Irma and Christy and Marilyn were so accommodating to all of our needs. Will definitely return under different circumstances.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 4 nights while traveling from PA to Georgia for a family wedding. Home was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Especially liked the extra living space on lower level, gave my boys the space they needed. Owner was fabulous to deal with and promptly answered all of our questions. Lake Lanier is a beautiful place to spend a few days. We really enjoyed our family time together. We would definitely stay at this home again!
