About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This 5000 square foot, gorgeous, Indonesian decor house is truly a lake-lovers dream. It is immaculately decorated in every room to an Indonesian-Asian theme. It is perfectly located in a fantastic ski cove, with amazing sunset views. It is directly at the center point of lake lanier providing easy access by boat to restaurants, marinas, golf, tennis, jet-ski rentals, camp out areas, hiking areas, and AN AMAZING ROPE SWING just around the corner by boat that swings right into the lake, etc. We also have a canoe on the dock available for your use and enjoyment. Also, we provide plenty of life vest for adults and children. Enjoy swimming off our dock with our easy access swim ladder for adults and children, just off the rear of the dock. The nearest boat ramp is Ducket Mill which is just directly across our cove, literally a 3 minute boat ride.

The home is nestled in the trees with fantastic views of the lake from all bedrooms, and the main dining room area. It has two large decks attached to the house, both with incredible lake view.

The outdoor all stone fire pit overlooking the lake is a guest favorite as well! It even has gorgeous stone benches to sit on surrounding the fire pit, perfect for relaxing around the fire while you roast your smores. We even supply all the wood!

After a fun-filled day playing in the lake, enjoy the indoor jacuzzi room in the house, also with a fantastic view of the lake.

This house is loaded with amenities such as DIRECT TV (satellite TV) with full subscription to all the movie channels, giant 50 inch Pioneer plasma flat screen with surround sound, a huge play room for the kids, pool table, outdoor gas grill, rope swing off the back deck, TVs in all bedrooms, central heat and air throughout, woodburning fire place, the largest dock allowed on lake lanier (double slip, two stories with huge party platform on top - also great for jumping into the lake), etc. It is decorated first class! Hi-Speed Wireless Internet also available.

This lakefront house is our favorite place in the world. However, due to extensive travel this summer, we have decided to make it available to others for rental. Our double slip, two story dock with power is always on deep-water and will easily accommodate your boat rental. Also, the fishing in our cove is superb - huge striper bass everywhere. Stay at this house once, and you will want to come back every year!

Bedding arrangements are as follows:

Master B/R King Size Bed - Sleeps 2

Guest B/R One - King Size Bed - Sleeps 2

Guest B/R Two - Double Bed - Sleeps 2, & Bunk Bed w/Dbl on Upper & Lower Bunks - Sleeps 4

Guest B/R Three - Queen Size Bed - Sleep 2

Full Size Sofa in Play Room With Pull Out Queen Size Bed - Sleeps 2

Total = 14

We hope you love our home and want to come back again year after year. We do have a strict no party policy. But this simply means that we don't want/allow any blow out types of parties there. We respectfully request that you treat our home as if it were your own. Don't get us wrong, as we want you to enjoy every part of the house; cook out, enjoy all the decks and dock, and enjoy your family type getaway to the fullest. We strive to accommodate your every need and nothing makes us happier then getting a 5 star review from you after your stay. We work very hard striving to earn that from you (if you feel we are deserving of it of course.) If you have any needs while you are there, just let us know and we will do everything possible to accommodate you.

We do have 3 security cameras outside to monitor home for your protection. The house is also a smart house meaning it has Alexis devices inside to control lights and music through the Alexis device.

Great for large families. Beds are comfortable. Outside area great for entertaining.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time with family. Accommodations were great. Back deck was great for entertaining. Everything worked as it should. Place was quiet and had no issues. Only suggestion would be to allow someone bringing boat to park under dock. This was stated in the description that they were filled though. Loved the deck above the boat dock.

Great space, easy access to lake

  • 5 of 5

The profile pictures do not do the place justice, truly. Our party (12 people, half girls and half guys) fit perfectly in the house, sleeping arrangements and all. There were plenty of nooks and crannies in the house and at the lake for us to spin off into smaller groups for various conversations and games, and the space still allowed for everyone to gather into one to two rooms for meals when necessary. The guys loved the pool table while the girls enjoyed the indoor jacuzzi; everyone loved having access to the lake. We also took advantage of the fire pit to make hot dogs for lunch as a group. We would highly recommend this place!

Great Stay at Lake Lanier Dispite Minor Setback

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this lovely lake home with amazing views & lake access. The home very comfortably accommodated our large party of adults, teenagers & one small child. We spent the majority of our time outdoors enjoying the large dock (for morning coffee, dinner, card games, relaxing). The lake is beautiful, the water is clean & clear (kids enjoyed watching fish swim around them) & there is easy access via the stairs at the back of the dock, great for quick dips & swims to the buoy. We made use of the canoe & kayak during our stay. Although the owner, Woody, allowed us to arrange for paddle board delivery to the home, we had to cancel, which was unfortunate because the lake is perfect for paddle boarding. We also enjoyed the pool table, indoor hot tub & there's a really nice fire pit outback, perfect for roasting marshmallows, but we didn't get a chance to use it. We did however make use of the grill on the deck. The home is very spacious & nicely decorated, our large party did not feel on top of each other, & there is space to slip away for quiet moments. However, the home is not very accessible for the elderly or disabled due to the number of stairs, which were a little challenging for the oldest member of our party, as there isn't a sleeping area on the main floor. Also, persons with arachnophobia, beware, as there are spiders everywhere outside. My daughter did not spend much time outside because of the number of spiders & webs around & under the dock. I think a good hose down would resolve this issue, but we believed the spiders were a deterrent for other bugs. We enjoyed a low country boil on the dock & didn't see one fly around! Lastly, the home is on septic & plumbing issues arose near the end of our stay that temporarily left us with one upstairs bathroom (out of 4 in the home). We contacted the house manager, Michelle, who is absolutely wonderful, but she was unable to secure a plumber until after the weekend. Michelle contacted the homeowner, Woody, who very graciously offered to refund our last night stay if we needed to vacate the property as well as a free future night stay. Although we were slightly inconvenienced, we were all having such a wonderful time, we decided to stay & share the one bathroom! Woody & Michelle were very accommodating throughout our Home Away experience & our entire party had a wonderful time. We highly recommend giving this home a try. Oh & the sunsets are AMAZING!

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having you as our guest. We have now resolved the plumbing issue. In all my years of owning and renting the property (more then 12 now), this is the only time that a plumbing issue has arose. We have fixed it. Please come back and we will give you a 10% discount on a future stay. Thanks again! Woody

Beautiful scenery and responsive hosts

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed house, with beautiful lake views. We spent the whole time outside — in the lake and grilling on the porch. The host and house manager were incredibly responsive, and I appreciated this communication. Can’t wait to come back next year.

There was plenty of room for all 9 of us in three separate sleeping areas. The house is tastefully maintained, right on the lake. Lovely game room and hot tub room. We already want to return.
