HIDDEN GEM! FABULOUS LAKEFRONT DECK W/GENTLE SLOPE

Dawsonville House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath w/ covered dock

Our ranch home sits at the end of a quiet street, just before the cul-de-sac. Perfect for a family get-away or a corporate team-building retreat. We have 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, kitchen, dining area, family room and study in an open plan. The outside is even better, with an enormous deck with bench seating, rain sheltered underdeck area and a easy walk to the lake with covered swim and party dock. Hidden Gem includes cable and wireless. The Master has a King bed, 42' flat screen TV w/dvd player and en suite bathroom. 1 Guest Bedroom has a Queen, blackout curtains and connected half bath. The other guest Bedroom, with adjacent full bath, has one Full, one youth mattress below, and a Loft twin. All adult beds and pillows are sealed w/ protectors (against fluids, bedbugs, etc.) You will enjoy a vaulted living and dining room with soaring stone fireplace, skylights, and walls of glass doors and windows overlooking the over-sized deck with fabulous views of the lake. The living room has a 42' HD flat screen, surround sound and wood burning fireplace. Games, dvd's, books and magazines are provided for additional entertainment. The study has a Queen sleeper sofa and desk with printer and wireless modum. The kitchen has updated stainless steel appliances, butcher block island with seating and plenty of dishes, pots and pans.

The outside areas provide an excellent place for lake viewing, dining, entertaining or just watching the kids play in the yard or cove. From deck & party dock to the hammock & firepit in the yard, there are plenty of locations to kick back and relax. We've added an outside shower and a screened, dry area under the dock, with bistro bar tables and additional seating. A gentle slope leads down to the covered boat dock (feel free to bring up to a 24' boat to cover) with swim platform. Please bring your own properly sized life jackets.

This property is great for families and also a perfect location for professional team building meetings. Please no wild and crazy parties - we love and respect our neighbors!

Travel less than an hour South on GA 400 to Atlanta for a ball game, World of Coke, GA Aquarium or Botanical Gardens.

Travel half an hour north or west to North GA Wine Country, State Parks and darling tourist towns.

We purchased this home as a lakehouse for weekend use when we lived in Atlanta. Our 'weekends' kept getting longer and longer, so we decided to move to the lake full time and turn the home into the perfect get-away. We have now renovated this 'hidden gem' to the perfect retreat and we have decided to share our home with others.

Amy Mook purchased this house in 2011

Having enjoyed living in a community with a shared common area on South Lanier; we wanted a change of pace. We looked for a private spot on the lake with its own dock, views and a bit of land to enjoy. When we found this spot we knew it was just what we had been looking for. The area is quiet and beautiful with plenty of hardwoods and a very gradual slope to the lake. The cove is not large, so there is seldom any other traffic. I think you'll enjoy our home, too!

Tucked away on a quiet cove in an older community, our home is ideal. Our lot has a gradual slope to a small beach area and fantastic cove for floating, swimming, playing and relaxing. Our cove opens up to a great ski area and is less than a mile from a year round access public boat ramp. Lovely views from the oversized deck, living, dining and master bedroom. A hot tub for unwinding and a fire pit complete the package. We have plenty of room for your cars, lake toys and family to enjoy this vacation setting.

OUR NEW FAVORITE PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We hadn't taken a vacation in almost 2 years. We live in Roswell, so we were worried that it would be a little too close and that we wouldn't feel like we really got away. How wrong we were! The house and location could not be more perfect! It's beautifully decorated and furnished and spotlessly clean. The back deck and hot tub were great. The perfect way to end each day. The dock and lake access are just a few steps from the back door. Even with the rainy year we've had, we swam in the lake daily and rented a boat a couple of times. We really can't say enough good things about this great home. We were sad to leave and can't wait to come back. We now have a new favorite place!

LAKE LANIER HOME RENTAL IN EARLY AUGUST 2013

  • 5 of 5
This Lake Lanier home was in excellent shape, very clean and welcoming. We loved the home's floor plan, decor, amenities and very easy access to lake for boating and water skiing. The large boat dock, complete with upper deck and quiet cove location, was also ideal for swimming and spending time outdoors. Our family would definitely recommend this home to others, and we would be happy to come back another time.

WONDERFUL WEEK

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect house for my family to enjoy Lake Lanier. It's tucked away off the beaten path and feels nothing like the crowded reputation this lake typically has. The house has a well-stocked kitchen, comfortable bedrooms with a fantastic family room and giant deck overlooking the lake. The master bedroom is lovely and large. We spent lazy days floating on rafts off the dock, fishing and grilling out. Perfect for kids to play along the small beach and look for frogs. The houes has a sweetness that feels like a home away from home. The owners have taken special care to make it feel like the ideal place to relax. Easy access off GA400 and feels like it's far, far away from Atlanta when it's really only an hour or less. Will definitely be going back!!

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
This Lake Lanier house truly is a gem! With all the comforts of home - and more - we had a most enjoyable visit. The back deck with the hot tub and lakefront view (especially at sunset) are so relaxing and private. The inside of the house is cozy and welcoming, and equipped with everything you might need during your stay. The owners have gone to great lengths to make ensure their visitors have a perfect vacation experience. We will certainly return!

Located in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains on Lake Lanier near the clear incoming waters of Thompson Creek. We have fabulous bird watching. As of today, I have seen the following: indigo bunting, red breasted grosbeak, goldfinch, juncoes, warblers, purple finch, red headed woodpecker, red bellied woodpecker, hairy & downy woodpecker, blue jay, cardinal, nuthatch, brown headed nuthatch, chick a dee, titmouse, redwinged blackbird, crow, brown thrasher, carolina wren, slate colored juncos, mockingbirds and who knows what I'm forgetting! Not to mention the water fowl, cranes, etc! Come enjoy. Watch the sun set every day from the deck, hot tub or dock or come up with your own favorite way to enjoy our home!
