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 Sydney Lanier and is very peaceful and quiet. She has just been painted inside and out and also sports new decks, front and rear. 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. 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 covered 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:
  • 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

Because she was too cute to resist!

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. Go for a canoe ride and enjoy the peaceful setting in the quiet cove, at sunrise, or anytime. Fisherman come from all around to catch here, so it must be good. Hang out on the deck and grill up the catch. There is a gas grill, table, chairs and umbrella, and even patio lighting for after hours.

A SUPER TIME SPENT WITH MY GRANDCHILDREN...

  • 5 of 5
This sweet cottage was a bit small for us, but affordable, and we were very happy in it. We had fabulous times on the lake with the canoes and a couple of kayaks lent by the owner. Everyone learned to paddle and to dive, instructed by their invincible grandmother. Some even did a bit of cooking...There's a good stock of board games and excellent facilities for washing clothes. A bit short on utensils! We didn't use the barbecue, but it would have been fun to cook on the deck. The Publix supermarket was minutes away and lovely beaches not far. Thankyou Mabel and your lovely owner for a great vacation.

MY GA TRIP.

  • 5 of 5
I fell in love with Mable the moment I saw her. She is warm and welcoming. For me it was a time for relaxing and healing and I was able to do both.

WELCOMING SHABBY SHEEK

  • 5 of 5
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.

ABSOLUTELY LOVED MABEL

  • 5 of 5
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!!

WE LOVE MABEL!

  • 5 of 5
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!

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 Bald Ridge. (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, concerts, golf and boat docks. It is a happening place all summer long, while boats tether up to have fun and enjoy the scenery. The Dawsonville Outlet Malls are within ten miles of the house, and features many of the stores that you love. If peace and quiet is your thing, venture up just a few miles further 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, ...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..
