  • 21 RN's who all graduated together in 1972.

    "This place was fabulous and just right for these age 65+ nurses, some of whom had not seen each other in 44 years. The website contained the info needed to plan sleeping for those who had to avoid stairs. The well equipped kitchen, multiple eating areas, and outdoor areas met our needs well. The five full bathrooms worked great for our group. We were oriented by Harold upon arrival and it was clear what was expected of our group. All our needs were met with everything connected to this house. I think our group will be back..."

  • Comfort on the lake!

    "This was a short 3 nighter for girlfriends, all in the "senior/70's!"---we had a mission of seeing as many waterfalls as possible!! And this lovely home was a perfect place to rest and recuperate after walking HUNDREDS of steps but being rewarded with gorgeous views. and our first fantastic view was from the double decker dock on this property! The rest of the house was perfect for us--comfortable beds and linens, well stocked kitchen (we did only minimal cooking), plenty of hot water for aching muscles, 2 bathrooms, tvs, window across the back to watch the sun rise and a coffeepot!! One lady really felt at home as she is a FROG collector and your collection thrilled her!! I have rented many beach homes through vrbo so this is my first LAKE home and it was beyond my expectations. There were plenty of restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, outlet mall, and church within a 2 mile radius! We usually came home after dark so missed the driveway each time--perhaps reflectors on the garbage cans or tape would help--our eyes are not what they used to be. But the directions were very clear and we had a GPS!! and trimming the bush at the driveway would help when exiting---we inched out each time but there was never anyone coming--- just made us nervous. Wish we had had more time for using the 2 outside decks but our "leader" was determined we see those waterfalls!! I would have been delirious to just sit and enjoy the wonders of nature in your backyard!! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!!!"

  • Something for Everyone

    "First of all I would like to say that the owners were great. They responded to email and phone calls right away and cheerfully answered all of our questions about the property. The layout is well suited for multiple families and is accessible (3 steps) on the main level to handicap individuals. The property was clean and well maintained. The house offers something for everyone with a great game room, boat dock, swimming pool and hot tub. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to whip up a gourmet meal. We have never stayed at another rental house that had a comparably stocked kitchen. Last, but not least, the view is incredible as are the sunsets. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives."

  • Beautiful lake house became our home for a month long milestone birthday celebration!

    "We have boated on Lake Lanier for years. We have always wanted to own a lake home in a quiet place with calm water. This summer, in celebration of a milestone birthday, the Northlake property became our home for a FULL MONTH! We invited family and friends to staggered stays during our rental and enjoyed every minute! Owners, Ray and Carmel were wonderful "hosts" responding promptly to our pre-rental questions and doing everything possible to make our stay perfect! We encountered an issue the first week that Ray handled efficiently. We noted a problem with the septic system. Ray scheduled specialists to analyze the issue, get proper permits and dig up the back yard to greatly expand the leach field (2 year old grandson loved watching that!). The whole process was done quickly (on the day I picked that would least impact our vacation) to replace the original big hoses that had become clogged with tree roots with a new technology system that will be a permanent fix. After a city inspector approved the work, the yard was all back in order while we were on a tour of Helen! For the remainder of our stay, everything worked perfectly! We enjoyed great weather and many hours each day at the lake: swimming, floating, boating, water skiing, riding our jet ski, and sitting in the shaded boat or on the dock. The kayaks were in use nearly every day. The peace and quiet in the cove and surrounding trees was so serene. We enjoyed occasional sightings of a doe with two fawns and a daily visit from a blue heron looking for minnows at the shore. My husband, daughter and son-in-law all have their own businesses and work from home. They were delighted that the house had various places that they could work separately for part of the day and then just a quick walk to lake fun! We enjoyed the Gainesville area: great restaurants, grocery stores, fun shops to explore and GA mountains all close by. All guests reported that the beds were comfortable and bedrooms spacious. We LOVED the master. Wish we could take the spacious bath and closet home! We made use of all the extras in the house: pool table, big tv and outdoor deck for a quiet morning coffee and evening meals. We loved the quiet neighborhood and the walk to the end for a vigorous workout! All guests want to come back and several are hoping to rent the property for their family gatherings! Thanks Ray and Carmel!! Great memories! A birthday to remember! We will be back next summer!!!"
