Dissapointed. Not Well Kept

  • 2 of 5

Pro: The location of the lake house. It's on a great cove with little boat traffic, especially during the week.

Cons: The master bedroom has sliding glass door that almost takes up the wall. It's good b/c you can see the lake but there are NO curtains OR blinds. So the sun wakes you up in the morning.

Towels & Blankets: Only 4 bath towels (which were rather thread bare) provided for 6 people. We finally found the extra towels, in the dryer.

No extra blankets provided & the "comforter" in the master is so thin you can see through it. To cool off the master bedroom, you have to keep the temperature low because there is no curtain to keep out the heat from the sun. The thermostat in the master bedroom also controls the extra bedroom so the temperature gets cold in that extra bedroom.

Plumbing: Day 2 of our 5-day stay we discovered there was no hot water in the shower in the extra bedroom. Immediately we called the owner. He told us to use the shower in the master bedroom. When we told him the shower head in that bathroom leaks so badly that you have little water pressure, his response was for us to use the downstairs bathroom. The only problem is that the bathroom downstairs has a tub with no shower. When asked if someone would come out, his response was no but he would give us a discount on our next visit. For us there will not be a next visit.

The kitchen sink leaks under the counter. The owner put a plastic container under the sink to catch the dripping water.

Boat Dock: The walkway going out to the dock has no handrail and is extremely unstable. When waves come in, the walkway rocks and could easy cause someone to lose their balance and fall, especially children.

The floating dock is attached to the more permanent dock with a chain that allows the floating dock to ride up and down as the waves come in. This creates a hazard for anyone who may get their foot too close to the edge between the floating dock and permanent dock. You cannot avoid this edge because we have to walk on the permanent dock and step over this edge to get to the floating dock where the ladder is located.

Parking: Multi-car parking is difficult as the house is down a gravel road with woods on both sides and the house takes up the entire lot.

Owner's Response: Most of this review is unfounded. The Master bedroom Shade: I guess you missed the switch next to the door handle that reads "shade". There is an electric powered shade that rolls down from above to cover the door. Most guests powered down half way to block the morning sun. Towles: I apologize about them being in the dryer. They are not tread bare; they are only two years old. Blankets: Plenty of blankets are provided. Showers: second bath:You turned the knob the wrong way. All other guests got hot water. The master shower did have a small dribble out the back of the head when running. We used it before and after you did and we had plenty of water. Dock: Very few dock walkways on Lanier have a handrail because they are unnecessary. The swimming dock is large and makes it impractical to have a rigid connection. We tried it one year and it constantly ripped apart. When there is lots of boat traffic, it does rock with the waves. Parking is limited.

Great view and location

  • 4 of 5

Located at the end of the street on a gravel drive this is the perfect lake house location. It's an easy grassy walk to the dock with a great view of the water. We stayed over the July 4th week and were able to sit on the deck to enjoy the neighbors fireworks at night. There are two rope swings within close proximity which provided hours of fun for the kids. We will definitely be back!

Great Lakehouse!

  • 5 of 5

Good location - 10 minutes by car to shopping and restaurants and 5 minutes by boat to the main part of Lake Lanier. Lakefront restaurants 20 minutes away. Huge bedrooms. Great views. Fully equipped kitchen. House is very close to the water with an easy walk to the dock. Had a great time. This is our favorite Lake Lanier rental so far.

Great location and a nice view, needs remodel and updating.

  • 3 of 5

Location is great with nearby shopping, restaurants, and all amenities needed. The property on the lake had a great view, quietness and privacy but was old, dark, and seemed to be out of the 1970's. The kitchen and inside dining needed more light, a disposal and the baths were older too. Seemed to be over priced for what we received.

Great house and location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this house. It is in a great area especially for kids. A cove inside a cove! Not much boat traffic so the kids could swim and play outside at the dock.the house is in a great location, only 5 min away from Publix and restaurants. Had a blast!

Great lake view property

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lakefront property. The environment and the

serene setting was just what we were looking for to relax during our trip to Georgia.
