LAKE HOUSE WITH LARGE DOCK ON GORGEOUS COVE WITH OUTDOOR KITCHEN & FIRE RING

Gainesville House Rental Photos and Description

Private Lake Setting is Convenient to Gainesville

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 13)

This almost new Lake Lanier home is the perfect spot for your Lake Lanier vacation. Located on a huge cove, this waterfront property has views of 'big water' from the dock and a large double slip dock with party deck on a quiet area of the lake in Gainesville, Georgia.

This spacious home available for rent on Lake Lanier would be perfect for a family vacation, family reunion or even a couple of families staying together. There is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy your stay in North Georgia on Lake Lanier. The property gently slopes to the water for an easy walk to the dock. The house is only a short drive from Gainesville for shopping and restaurants and River Forks Park for activities like beach volleyball.

There are 5 bedrooms (see below), 4 bathrooms with tub/showers and one half bathroom. This house has plenty of of beds and they are on 3 floors which allows for some privacy. The main living room has a wall of windows overlooking the trees and lake view through the trees, beautiful hardwood floors, a massive stone fireplace and vaulted ceilings.

If you need to stay connected to work or other important functions that require your attention during your stay at the lake, WI-FI is available and there is an office area--a perfect spot not far from other activities.

For outdoor living, there are three deck areas – two covered decks--one with 3 ceiling fans--and a deck over by the outdoor kitchen and fire pit. For entertainment, there are games, a flat screen TV and a shuffle board table on the terrace level.

When you are at the lake, you can sit on the dock and enjoy the sun on the upper part of large party dock or stay below for more shade or even fishing. Either location allows for a great view of lake activities. There are boats and jet skis for rent at various marinas on the lake, the closest being Port Royal. A paddle boat is available for use with house rental.

****Please note, we do NOT allow events at the home such as weddings, large birthday bashes, bachelor parties, etc.****

We are a residential location and cannot accommodate a large EVENT. Family gatherings, couples, mature women or men's groups are fine and welcome. If you have more than 13, please inquire about suitability of space. We strive to maintain our home in pristine condition and have found 'party events' are not in keeping with the vision for our vacation rental. Thank you for your understanding.

We are from Gwinnett county Georgia and wanted a second home not too far from our primary home so we could use it often. Our kids love water sports and bringing friends to the lake. Family time is precious and being together at the lake makes it easier for us to spend some quality time as a family.

Joni Tuttle purchased this house in 2006

We owned a house on Lake Lanier a little further north before building this one. We desired a lot that wasn't as steep of a walk down to the lake, and this one fit the bill. The setting among the trees and the privacy we have at the house is perfect. No matter what the water levels are on the lake, we are able to move the dock out further so that we always have water and can get our boats in and out.

The house itself is great for couples as well as families since four of the five bedrooms have their own bathroom. It has been a wonderful house for family vacations as well as entertaining.

There are many things we love about the house. The outdoor kitchen with the fire ring is one of our favorites. No matter what time of year, we use the outdoor grill and fire ring as a place to gather. The covered decks off the back of the house are good for meals and to sit and relax with a cup of coffee. If it is raining, you can still sit and enjoy the view. The ceiling fans keep it a comfortable temperature in the warm months.

The cove where our dock is located makes a great spot to sit and watch people fish, tube or ski. It is a protected spot, yet very open without being in an area where the dock/boat gets knocked around. The location on the lake is convenient; we love to take the boat over to Pelican Pete's and eat and listen to music. There is always something to do and Gainesville is 10 minutes away if we want to go shopping or go to dinner.

Wonderful time we had campfire, fishing, boating and everything else. We believe that owner of the house must be very generous because lots of things were pretty much there for the convenience and even the furnitures were nice.
We very much enjoyed and look forward for next trip to this house soon.

Wonderful respite by the lake

Wish it had been longer, but this was a wonderful place to stay while doing a 2-day driving course over at Road Atlanta. Coming back and building fires in the outdoor fireplace each night and just enjoying the quiet sounds of the lake in fall was very relaxing. Lovely home.

Great Spot for Family Gathering

Rented this house for myself and family/friends traveling to Gainesville for my son's wedding. The house is spacious and has great gathering spaces. The five bedrooms provide a lot of sleeping space and much needed privacy for quiet times. The outdoor spaces were great too - porches, fire pit, outdoor kitchen and dock. It was perfect.

Great Lake House

This house is a great vacation spot. The house is in a quiet cove that was great for skiing and tubing because we hardly had any boat traffic and the dock is still on very deep water.

The house itself was in great condition and slept plenty of people very comfortably.

Map

Nestled in the foothills of the Georgia Blue Ridge Mountains and nurtured by the Chattahoochee and Chestatee Rivers, Lake Sidney Lanier is named for the post Sidney Clopton Lanier, whose admiration of the area's scenic beauty inspired him to compose his famous 'Song of the Chattahoochee'.

Lake Lanier is one of America's favorite lakes. With several million visitors annually enjoying its recreational facilities, it has been the most visited Corp of Engineers project in the nation.

One reason for for the lake's popularity is its proximity to metropolitian Atlanta, Georgia. A well-developed road network surrounds Lake Lanier, with several highways crossing the main body. Visitors can enjoy the city of Atlanta and, in the space of a short drive, can lose themselves in the tranquility at Lake Lanier.

Lake Lanier, impounded by Buford Dam, encompasses 38,000 surface acres of water with 540 miles of shorelines. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has developed and operates numerous public parks around the lake for camping and day-use activities.

Lake Lanier Islands, a development by the State of Georgia and the Corps of Engineers, is the major resort area on the lake. The Islands complex provides picnicking, camping, beach areas, a water theme park, tennis courts, golf courses, rental boats, and hotel accommodations. Numerous other recreation areas operated by county and city agencies also offer recreational opportunities around the lake.

Lake Lanier was host to the 1996 Centennial Olympic Rowing and Sprint/Canoe/Kayak Events, as well as the 1996 Paralympic Yachting events. These honors have helped make Lanier a world class lake.
