SUNSET SUMMIT - 5 BDRM / 4.5 BATH HOME W/ HUGE LAKE & NORTH GEORGIA MTN VIEWS

Gainesville House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14

This 5 bedroom/4.5 bath house is perfect for enjoying fall weather with amazing views of Lake Lanier, changing tree colors, and beautiful views of the North Georgia Mountains. When you're not enjoying the views, the house also has 60' flat screen TV's in both the living room and game room that are great for watching College and NFL games. In addition, there are two master suites at Sunset Summit. The upstairs master has beautiful views of the lake from the bedroom and bathroom and a large balcony to relax on while you enjoy your morning coffee or wind down at the end of your day. The master on the main floor has direct access to the pool deck and views of both the pool and lake. The dual masters ensure that multiple people have equally impressive views and amenities. We have additional photos and information available at www.lakelanierhouserental.com

The home furnishings and floor plan are perfect for a small group or multi-family/multi-generational groups. This property was custom built by a home builder and every detail from the interior to the massive retaining walls and landscaping were meticulously executed. The home was further renovated three years ago. Michelle and I plan to continue to make this property even better and we have no doubt that your group will thoroughly enjoy this three-level house regardless of the purpose of your trip. We've already booked groups for family reunions, friend gatherings, Road Atlanta race weekends, races at the Olympic Rowing Venue, lodging for a wedding party at Walters Barn, and group fishing trips.

This home has amazing open water lake views that are unobstructed from most rooms in the house and the pool deck which is very uncommon for Lake Lanier. There is also a double-slip dock with party deck that you can use with your own boat or rent one from Gainesville Marina. We also have a four seat pedal boat available for our guests. This northeastern part of the lake is calm for fishing or water skiing or just playing around the water or using our pedal boat.

Don Carter State park is directly across the water from the house. This is the only state park on Lake Lanier (all other parks are federally run). The park includes 1,300 acres with great amenities such as horseback riding trails, hiking/walking trails, sand beach, camping and cottage sites (please ask us about how we can accommodate larger groups than 14 if needed). The park can be easily accessed with our pedal boat or your own boat/rental boat. For further information on the park, please see the included link in the 'Links & Video' section of this listing.

Last but not least, this home is very convenient to multiple venues including: Chateau Elan, Road Atlanta, Olympic Rowing Venue, Walters Barn wedding venue, UGA, Gainesville, Cumming, and the North East Georgia Mountains. Please contact us if you are attending an event in any of these areas and are looking for a getaway with amazing views but within close proximity. We look forward to helping families and friends make wonderful memories for years to come.

About Jarrett & Michelle

Michelle and I live in Atlanta and have always loved Lake Lanier. We've had a boat on the lake since 2007 and finally took the leap to own a house on this beautiful lake.

Jarrett & Michelle purchased this house in 2014

Why Jarrett & Michelle chose Gainesville

We've both always wanted to own property on the water and this home has some of the best views we've ever seen on Lake Lanier. Because 99% of homes on Lake Lanier have Corp of Engineers property between their property and the water, most homes have no view or at best partial/seasonal views. This home has unobstructed, open-water views from most rooms in the house. The North Georgia Mountains are also in close proximity and you can see them from parts of the property. Sunset Summit has beautiful views and scenery year round which is unique to most lake houses.

This home was also extremely well built with a lot of custom features and was recently renovated. We are looking forward to sharing this property and helping others create lasting memories on Lake Lanier.

What makes this house unique

The property has amazing views of Lake Lanier from most windows in the house and also has fall and winter views of the North Georgia Mountains. The house also includes dual master bedrooms and a beautiful pool and hot tub overlooking the water. There is also a short walk to the lake with a double-slip dock with party deck that you are free to use with your boat or our paddle boat while you visit the property. Lastly, the only state park on Lake Lanier is directly across the water from this home. The park offers additional amenities that are easily accessed via water from this home.

Full if disappointments

  • 1 of 5
My family and I rented Sunset Summjt for a family reunion. We were very excited with all the amenities that they had to offer such as the pool, pool games, fire pit, water fall etc. Upon entering the house it appeared beautiful but quickly we saw how extremely dirty it was . The kitchen had food stains all over the cabinets, the refrigerator was filthy and opened food was left behind from the party that left. The coffee maker still had the coffee grinds from the family that was there before us. The ceiling fans had layers of dust on them especially in the master bedroom. I couldn't even turn the fan on because I was scared that my child who has asthma would have an attack. There was no cable in the master bedroom so my children couldn't even watch TV in the room. The bed in the master is also a mess. The right side of the bed has no support so as soon as you lay down on that side the bed dips to almost the floor. When we arrived the surround sound, DVD player and Wii were all disconnected so we had to use our own personal time to try to fix it for the kids. The owner was notified and did come to the house to try to rectify that situation. One of the burners on the stove was also not working which slowed things down for us when he came down to feeding the family. The propane tank with the BBQ grill also ran out of gas in the middle of grilling and the owner suggested that we go and get the propane and he would reimburse us. The house does come with a pedal boat but again it was do filthy and full of spider webs that we didn't even want to touch it. Also, the TV in the living room and in the terrace level are somehow connected so whatever is being watched in the living room has to be watched in the terrace lever. You are forced to watch the same thing. If you try to change the channel then both TVs change. The part of this whole thing that really upset my family and I is that this place has huge roaches. The day of checkout we observed the cleaning crew (which consisted of one man and a small child) dragging the used comforters back into the rooms without washing them. Last but not least after already arriving at the house the owner notified is that the waterfall was not working. We were extremely disappointed with this rental. To compensate the only thing the offer allowed us to do was to stay one hour past our checkout time. We will not be renting this property ever again.

Owner's Response: We are extremely disappointed that Anisa's perception of the property diverges so significantly from the other 13 guests that took the time to share resoundingly positive reviews this summer, including the guest that stayed the four days prior to Anisa’s trip. It is our number one priority for all of our guests to have an exceptional experience while visiting Sunset Summit. We take great pride in the appearance of our lake home and the many amenities that it provides and we do everything in our power to ensure each guest has a special, memorable stay.
The bulk of Anisa's claims are unfounded and simply untrue. Unfortunately Anisa does not mention the fact that we sent our cleaning crew of two adults over immediately after their arrival to stay as long as needed to resolve any concerns. The owner also went to the property on Anisa’s first night within hours of their arrival to assist with plugging in the various media provided and would have been able to quickly and easily resolve the TV / Dish cable requests as well if brought to our attention.
We were also quite disappointed to learn that Anisa misled us on the size of her party which had more than 20 people staying in a home designed to comfortably accommodate 14.
We are more than happy to address any of the items raised by this renter with all future guests in advance to ensure they are comfortable with their decision to stay at our property. We would also be pleased to provide past guest references. We look forward to continuing to provide a great atmosphere for families and friends to help create fantastic memories at Lake Lanier for years to come.
Sincerely,
Jarrett & Michelle

Sunset Summit family vacation mecca

  • 5 of 5
We found Sunset Summit to be perfect for our large annual family vacation. We had 10 adults and two babies and it was so spacious. Everyone had their own oasis with a private bath. BUT we were together most of the day enjoying either the lake, pool, hot tub, game room, etc. Lake Lanier is so beautiful and I didn't realize that the Summit was right by the Olympics Rowing Center. It was neat boat around there and know all of those athletes filled the waters of Lake Lanier. The water is so clean and refreshing. If you're a camping type, nature lover, this is the house for you. It's set back off of the road in the deep wooded area. It was clean and decorated light and airy. There was so much to do we didn't get to try all of the areas of the house. We loved the POOL most of all! It was fantastic. They had so many pool toys, floats, squirt guns, and life vests we didn't need our own but we did bring a few floats. We played volleyball with a big beach ball they provided and that was a highlight each day. There were flat screen tv's in each room and we brought a movie system-like Roku for the family Movie nights but again there were so many things to do Movie night was only 1 time. We enjoyed the fire pit on the pool deck for fireside chats. We picked up the wood in the morning from the Kroger grocery. The sunsets were great every night we could dine at the pool dining table and watch the sunset. Then the hot tub on a couple of nights or down to the sports room for table tennis. Bring your own portable music system for the pool and you'll be set! Loved it! Had the most relaxing vacation ever. Cheers to the owners for creating a peaceful and comfortable setting.

Perfect Week!

  • 5 of 5
Our recent visit to Sunset Summit was perfect. The house is beautiful inside and out...the pictures really do not do it justice. We had a party of eleven and there was more than enough room for everyone. The kitchen was well stocked and 2 refrigerators and the extra ice machine at the wet bar came in very handy. The pool and hot tub were clean and having the dock was perfect for our kayaks. We also loved the game room! We have rented many homes through VRBO - this was, by far, the best! Jarrett and Michelle were great. They responded to questions promptly and they were absolutely wonderful to work with. We will definitely go back! Thank you Jarrett and Michelle.

What a Wonderful, Relaxing Week!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Sunset Summit was one full of relaxation and wonderful memories….and the relaxation took place even with 7 teenagers!! This wonderful home is very well furnished, just as it is advertised. We had 11 people and always had enough room to be together and to spread out, too. From the pool, to the downstairs pool table/ping pong table/rock band area of competitions among us, to the awesome pier to fish (unfortunately, the fish won, not us) and to also enjoy the magnificent sunsets. This was our 2nd time vacationing at this lovely Georgia home, and I am sure we will consider going there again. Our teens and dads went to nearby Flowery Branch and watched an Atlanta Falcons football training camp session, which was an added bonus. The owners were very attentive to us and made sure our stay was perfect. Thank you again, Jarrett and Michelle!!

Perfect house for a week of multiple-family fun

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for a week in the summer with 8 adults and 6 kids and it was exactly what we wanted. The house is quite large so we never felt cramped even with so many people. The kitchen was big and well equipped with tons of storage space, while the separate ice maker and the second refrigerator in the basement were wonderful because we did tons of cooking (and drinking). The swimming pool is simply awesome and the view from the pool, pool deck, and hot tub is gorgeous. The game room in the basement was a huge hit with the kids, large screen TVs were nice for watching World Cup games, and pretty much everything was great. Even the paddle boat is a quality one that actually moves and is fun to use on the river, as opposed to the cheap paddle boats at amusements parks that seem dangerous and are a pain to use. The owners were incredibly helpful and responsive. We have been renting VRBO houses for annual family get-togethers for a number of years now and this was hands-down the most complete house we have found.
