The home is nestled in the trees with a view of the lake from all three levels. The upstairs "crow's nest" deck is just off the King Bedroom and offers breathtaking morning and evening views of the woods and lake while you sit and drink your coffee or adult beverage in the covered siting area. The Screened porch off the main level provides views for the entire family, and the covered downstairs patio has seating for 8 around the patio table plus room for more. Stainless steel propane grill is ready to cook anything you imagine. You can also roast up some marshmallows around the fire pit and make up some s'mores for dessert. The home is located between two very convenient lake Lanier recreational parks, each with boat ramps. Nix Bridge to the South and Toto Creek to the North and only minutes away. There are several marinas nearby where you can rent a boat from us or at the marina or bring your own, (lake levels permitting)*.

About Michael & Nikki

We live on the lake ourselves and have enjoyed it so much we felt strongly that others should also have the opportunity to experience this lifestyle. With this in mind, we purchased a nearby home from the original owners and refurbished key areas while leaving the lake charm intact in others.

What makes this House unique

The country charm, along with nearby city amenities and shopping make this an ideal location. The "Crow's nest" covered balcony / nook allows for a chance to get away from city life, but you are still connected via the Wifi and Direct TV satellite provided. The screened porch is big enough for everyone to enjoy. The house has stained glass windows through out, cedar paneling through out and the tin ceiling from the old Capitol records building in Atlanta. Extras include a thermo-electric wine cooler, a George Foreman grill, coffee maker & electric tea kettle. Full set of dishes and silverware for 12. Microwave, Stove, Refrigerator, dishwasher, washing machine & dryer. Central heat and A/C along with a Cast Iron Pot Bellied stove which can keep the entire house warm on those cold N. Georgia nights. Fresh bedding with allergy protection covers on every mattress. Plenty of towels.

                                                                  Melanie P.

                                                                  The home was spacious enough for our group of 15. We loved the screened in porch for temperate weather (too cold to use for our winter visit). The home was very accommodating and welcoming to the needs of our multiple families. The best part of staying here was that the owner, Mike, is very accessible and caring. He even left us a bottle of champagne for our NYE trip! He was very quick to reply to any text I sent and was helpful during all exchanges. Only inconvenience experienced during our stay is that the WiFi bandwidth is for browsing only, not broad internet use. We were there at the end of the month so I’m sure that’s another reason the data was depleted. It was a slight inconvenience due to our several kids in the house and lack of cell phone service in the cabin. Mike notified me of the large data use and that the WiFi would slow and offered an option to buy more GB. I appreciated his communication and helpful nature. I feel sure anyone who stays here would enjoy their visit.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you so much for the wonderful review and for staying at the Lake property. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay.

                                                                  Unfortunately due to the location, the Wi-Fi that's available is satellite internet / Wi-Fi, and because of that it is limited to a specific number gigabyte usage per month. But, we are certainly happy to work with any guests to accommodate their Internet usage needs, and can provide several options for that. We understand that new Internet providers will be coming into the area soon, and should be able to increase bandwith in the near future.

                                                                  We also hope that you are able to come back during the summer and enjoy the Lake and the screen porch during warmer temperatures.

                                                                  Thank you again.

                                                                  Wonderful Cabin Retreat Any Time of Year!

                                                                  Victoria M.

                                                                  We were there for my daughter's wedding at R Ranch. I have 5 siblings from all over the country so I needed accommodations for several families. The house has 3 levels of living space so perfect for adults/young adults, kids, etc. Plenty of kitchen ware (utensils, flatware, cookware, dishes, etc.) The owner was very responsive to our needs. That is major when one is entering a strange place for the first time. We are very careful and considerate about other peoples' property; probably overly cautious; better to ask than to break. The back of the house has a large screened in deck that is absolutely serene and beautiful (it looks just like the pic!) The only negative is that we weren't there long enough to really enjoy everything this house had to offer. So in conclusion, we would absolutely stay here again!

                                                                  Thank you again for the wonderful compliments. We enjoyed having you at the cabin and hope you choose to stay with us again in the future.

                                                                  It is a pleasure to work with such wonderful guests. All the best. M&M.

                                                                  Kyle F.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

It's always great to hear that guests have had an awesome time and that the property was what they were looking for. We hope that you and your guests are able to come back and stay with us sometime in the future.

                                                                  CONNIE D.

                                                                  Exellent Cabin in the Woods

                                                                  Keith H.

                                                                  We enjoyed our stay for my Mother's 80th birthday. To have the whole family together in one location was awesome. The location is convenient to many attractions as well. We will keep this in mind for future stays.

                                                                  Quiet and charming very relaxing

                                                                  Walter G.Grand Bay

                                                                  Rented this house for the weekend of the 6 gap bike ride. Close enough, yet quiet and comfortable for all 8 of us. Would recommend this place.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  So many activities to see and do. You can enjoy the lake which is only a short walk (250') from the cabin, along with water sports, or fishing. You can also to do a wine tasting winery tour in nearby Dahlonega and Helen, GA. There are many local festivals throughout the year. If you like to go antiquing there are spots in Dawsonville, Dahlonega and Gainesville very close by. You can go to the Atlanta Motorsports Park (AMS) and race 55 MPH go carts (only 15 min away). So much to do, you'll want to setup a schedule! There is information in a binder in the cabin regarding all that there is to see and do in the area.
