MEET MABEL. CUTE & INEXPENSIVE LAKE GETAWAY!

Cumming Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

We call her Mabel. She's not fancy, but she's neat and clean and has everything that you might need for a weekend getaway, or a stay for as long as you like. Her lovely wooded setting has a slight view of Lake Lanier, and is very peaceful. She has just been painted inside and out and also sports new front and rear decks. Her master bedroom has a queen-size bed and it's own bathroom with a garden tub and shower. Separate from the master, are the other two bedrooms. One has a queen-size bed and the other has a full. In the living room is a futon leather couch that folds down and can sleep an extra one in a pinch. The fully stocked kitchen should have everything that you need to prepare and enjoy daily meals, including a gas grill. (There are also a number of nearby restaurants, just a few minutes from the house.) The family room is very open to the kitchen and bar area and has a wood-burning fireplace with flat-screened television and a DVD player for watching movies. (Cable, Internet, and Wi-Fi) She does not have granite or hardwood floors, but she does have a coffee pot, stove, microwave, washer and dryer. There are two boat ramps within .7 of a mile and the circle driveway should easily accommodate a trailer, so definitely bring the water toys. There are two canoes at the dock and plenty of room for your boat and toys. There is even a hammock for resting. Did I mention the single-slip dock and the fabulous bass fishing?? I tried for totally affordable pricing, so that you can make it a fun time and not break the bank.... Come and stay awhile.

Suitability:
  • pets considered
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • smoking allowed
  • children welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Relocating to Georgia in 1998 with General Motors, our family has really come to love the people and scenery that this gorgeous state has to offer. Growing up in Michigan, and moving around quite a bit, we fell in love with Georgia, where the countryside is amazing and each of the four seasons are uniquely beautiful. We are so fortunate to have beautiful Lake Sydney Lanier in our back yard.

Cathie Doerr purchased this cottage in 2012

I have always had an obsession with real estate. I long to take the 'uglies' and make them cute. We have owned the lot but were just able to enhance it by bringing Mabel from down the street and giving her a total facelift. She was such an ugg-mug, but now I think she is pretty cute.

Her best feature is her spectacular setting among the trees, where nature abounds. Relaxing comes natural here, whether it be reading a good book in the hammock, chilling on the back deck, or hiking along the waterfront. Bass fishing is one of the best features as well, and eating the catch is even better.

Welcoming Shabby Sheek

From the moment we walked into Mable, I fell in love with her. Most places I've stayed have definitely been homes, some well-decorated and others comfortable, but Mabel, with her shabby sheek furniture, antique radio and clock, cool mixed up colors, eclectic furniture, and cool color schemes, just felt like a friend. Her owner is either a decorator or has a friend who is. Mabel is just as charming as she is comfortable. She provides all the necessities to cook, have cocktails, and relax. I really want to go back to enjoy Lake Lanier with the available canoes and with permission, the kayaks. Close by are grocery stores, gas stations, and more. Shopping, restaurants and movie theaters are a short drive away in Gainesville or Cumming. Even closer, just 4 miles away, is Port Royale, where you can enjoy a good meal at the marina and watch the boats go by on Lake Lanier. I hope to return in the spring to do just that.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time, and for saying so many sweet things about Mabel. I am very proud of her and it is good to know that you so enjoyed your stay. Please come back soon. :)

Absolutely LOVED Mabel

We had a wonderful time at this lovely home. Eveything and more provided (even board games, kayaks,etc) for a great and relaxing stay. Great location, right off of 400 and lots of nearby grocery and shopping malls. The dock is wonderful especially with the convenience of the dock ladder.

We are local from the Roswell area and we will most definitely return to this nestled gem we found in Cumming, GA.

A special Thank You to the owner Cathie for making this process simple and pleasurable to rent.

See you again real soon Mabel!!

The perfect back to school get away for my grandson and a very relaxing break from a rainy summer. Mabel is very comfortable and casual, has everything you need! I brought too much stuff. Bring your clothes and food, you don't need anything else, Cathie has thought of everything! In addition to floating around in the lake, we took a day trip to Dahlonega which is a short beautiful drive. Thanks for having us! We'll be back!

If you are looking for that perfect country setting with lots of woods, birds chirping and peaceful walks you need to rent Mabel. It's owner takes pride in keeping you comfortable and is very accommodating. This home has everything you need including wifi! The area has beautiful lake Lanier to go to and Mabel has its own dock on the property as well. Don't want to cook? There are lots of great restaurants to choose from. we loved sitting on the back deck and the beautiful drives through the countryside.

Bring your boat or rent one at one of the many marinas close by (Port Royale is four miles down the road and several others are close by: Aqualand, Habersham and Baldridge. (Bud, at Gainesville Marina, will even deliver and pick up) Lake Lanier Island Waterpark is within 20 minutes by water or land. It offers a family fun-packed day with beaches, water slides , zip lines, kiddie and wave pools, restaurants, etc. while Sunset Cove has live music and boat docks. It is a happening place all summer long, while boats tether up to have fun and enjoy the scenery. If peace and quiet is your thing, venture up a few miles (30-40) and see the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, take a scenic railway tour, white-water rafting, rock climbing, great hiking and waterfalls, or simply ramble among the small towns just north of us like quaint Dahlonega's town square, (where you can pan for gold) or visit the town of Helen and go tubing or gem-grubbing, and maybe even visit a winery or two. Save a few days to head downtown to experience the fine city of Atlanta, where a number of options are waiting including: the Fox Theater, a Braves or Falcons game, great concerts at Chastain or Philips Arena, the High Museum, Georgia Aquarium, Botanical Gardens, Zoo Atlanta, Centennial Olympic Park, Hardrock Cafe, CNN Tower and World of Coke or even Six Flags. ..or just relax and enjoy the bass fishing, ...some of the best right here in our quiet little cove, just a stroll away..
