Overview

Gainesville House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathrooms only steps to lake - Gorgeous views!

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10)

This newly remodeled Lake Lanier home is the perfect spot for your Lake Lanier vacation. The renovation was completed in 2014 and is ready for your stay. Located on a huge cove, this waterfront property has lake views from almost every room in the house. The house comes with a large, private dock with party deck on a quiet area of the lake in Gainesville--sit in the shade down below or up top and get some sun.

This fabulous home on Lake Lanier was purchased because of the great views and the ideal spot on the lake. It is well suited for a family vacation, family reunion or even two or three families staying together. The property is only a few steps to the dock and lake, and the grassy area gently slopes to the water. The house is convenient to shopping and restaurants in Gainesville. Lake Lanier Islands Resort and water park is about 25 minutes away.

There are 4 bedrooms (see below) and 3 full bathrooms and one half bath. There is one bedroom on the main level and the other 3 are upstairs. Two of the 4 bedrooms open to the upstairs deck and have wonderful lake views. You can watch people tube, ski or fish from the house or dock and enjoy the sunset as well. The main living area has large windows overlooking the lake. The kitchen and the eating area can seat 8 people comfortably for dinner and a couple more at the island. There is seating outside on the patio as well.

WI-FI is available. There are two flat screen TV's (satellite service) one on each floor.

On the dock, you can sit and enjoy the sun on the upper part of the large party dock or stay below for more shade or fishing. Either location allows for a great view of lake activities. Port Royale is the closest Marina; Balus Creek or Mountain View are the two closest boat ramps. If interested, we have kayaks available for rent.

****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 10 or 11 people, 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

Retired-- time to own a place at the lake.

Joni Tuttle purchased this house in 2014

Why Joni Tuttle chose Gainesville

My son and his wife own a house close by and this house was the perfect location on the lake for me. When all the family and grandchildren are in town we can all gather right there together on the lake for a fun time. The lake views in this house are wonderful and the walk is extremely gentle to the dock.

What makes this house unique

The view is absolutely fabulous and one of the main reasons for my purchase. The short walk to the dock is also nice.

1950's HS friends gathering with spouses

  • 5 of 5

Four couples orginally from Kansas gathered to catch up on old times. We came from Martha's Vineyard, Orlando, LaGrange GA and Kansas City. The property was neat, clean

and up to date as far as facilities. The setting is wonderful with a picture perfect view of

Lake Lanier which was smooth as glass during our stay. We could not ask for a more enjoyable stay and hope to be able to arrange for another visit in the near future.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Our Family enjoyed our stay! I thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quite on the lake in the mornings before the crew awoke. The lake was very accessible from the house. We all enjoyed the fishing, swimming, and kayaking during the day. Our dog loved it too! Thanks to Joni for renting the Kayaks to us. Meal time was a pleasure. We had plenty of space inside and out to dine together and the kitchen was well equipped. We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: It thrills me when other people get to enjoy the house and have some of the same experiences as we do. I agree that the mornings at this house are really special. Maybe it is watching the early morning fishing boats or just experiencing the pure stillness of the lake but there is nothing like a cup of coffee over a morning devotional or quiet time out on the patio at this house. I am so glad you enjoyed the kayaks and your entire experience at our Lake Lanier home. We look forward to having you come back when you can!

Work Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect house for a group of 8- coed. We all work together so we didn't want to cuddle or have to share beds. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked several meals there. The views are beautiful from the house looking over the lake! We'd certainly consider staying here again if we're in the area. :)

Family get together

  • 5 of 5

My scattered family met here for 4 nights. Everyone had a wonderful time and no one was ready to leave. The gentle slope to the lake and the beautiful view from the kitchen ensured that the cook never felt isolated. The kitchen is modern (granite counter, stainless appliances) and well furnished with cooking utensils, large pans, platters and bowls, two ovens. We rented a canoe and 2 kayaks (which were delivered to the dock before we arrived) and paddled to the "secret island". We brought a life jacket for the toddler, but adult & child-size life jackets were provided. The water is clean, we felt truly in nature, but the Publix grocery store and a Pizza Hut are just minutes away. The beds were comforatble and the furnished linens were a better quality, nice and soft. For those who like to sleep with windows open, be aware that the cottage did not have screens - perhaps owners are planning to install them for the fall? The windows are brand new and lovely. Bring a speaker for your iphone and maybe a lawn game.

the children in our group were 4 months, 2, and 5. Uncertain how teenagers would like it. The young adults loved it.

Owner's Response: Jeanette, Thanks for choosing us as the place for your family to gather this summer. Based on personal experience and feedback from other guests, all ages enjoy the lake--especially teenagers--so we are glad you did and hope you can come back for years to come. You brought up a good point, a few of the windows have screens but they don't make the view as attractive, so we left them off most windows. We may reconsider in the fall but the view will be gorgeous then too. It is a great idea to bring your portable blue tooth speakers to play music from your phone or tablet--wifi is available though out the house and even on the dock most of the time, so you can access music from Pandora or other music apps. Or if you prefer, we have a good old fashioned boom box. A sound bar or outdoor speakers are possibilities for the future. Thanks Jeanette!
