Overview

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.

About Joni Tuttle

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

Why Joni Tuttle chose Gainesville

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Great Family House

  • 5 of 5
We had three families stay together while we attended the Dragon Boat Festival on Lake Lanier. We cooked together, played outside on the dock, swam a lot, even rented a jet ski from Port Royale Marina. Lots of space in the home, great indoor and outdoor kitchen. Owner will deliver wood for small fee.

Fantastic lake home!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and family have rented a lot of lake homes in recent years, but this home is by far our favorite! The home is spacious, beautifully furnished, and well equipped for cooking and dining with a big group. I highly recommend this property!

lake vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a wonderful stay at the property. The house was clean and very comfortable. We cooked most of our meals at the outdoor cooking area. We had so much to do, we didn't feel a need to leave. We rented kayaks and a paddleboard from the owner which kept us entertained. We also rented a pontoon from Paradise Marina and spent many hours tubing, cruising and just sitting. We did venture out on the pontoon to Pelican Petes for dinner one night, but as we had young children who got restless we didn't stay long, preferring to eat at the house. It was a great place for us all to get together.

We stayed at this property with another family for 7 days, and could have stayed longer if we had the time! The location was perfect on the lake - we had children (5 children under 8) and they were able to swim, paddleboat, kayak without worries of boats around! The house was very comfortable and nicely equipped, and we used all the floors available. The only thing that wasn't there that we missed was a blender! Beds were very comfy and we turned the dining room table into our ping pong table. We had an awesome time here and we will definitely stay here again!

Wonderful Home for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
Great getaway for family gatherings. The home offers cozy areas to mingle from the kitchen, the back porches and the awesome backyard kitchen and fire pit. The running creek and path leading to the double-decked floating dock was a great prelude to fishing, sunning and paddle boat riding. The three levels of bedrooms allowed for comfortable areas for all. Would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: Thanks Pete. We are thrilled you enjoyed the house and lake so much. It is always rewarding when others feel the same way about the house as we do--a true getaway spot to enjoy with friends and family. We look forward to having you stay with us again!

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.
